Lynne Spears May Be Outing Britney on Drugs, Sex in Tell-All Book

September 4, 2008 12:50 PM ET

Originally envisioned as a guide to parenting, Britney's mom Lynne Spears' book has instead reportedly morphed into a scandalous tell-all documenting the tabloid-worthy lives of her two daughters. According to In Touch Weekly, Lynne Spears: Through the Storm attempts to paint the Spears matriarch as a good mother despite the press' claims of her being a terrible stage mom. Lynne claims she "never had any intention of profiting off her girls." Lynne also discusses how she liked Kevin Federline, and that during Britney's breakdown last year, Lynne's "heart broke into a million pieces when she saw the look of despondency in Britney's eyes." That's In Touch's preview. UK's The Sun tells a much darker and incendiary portrait of Spears' book. According to the admittedly sketchy UK tabloid, Lynne's claims include that Britney started drinking alcohol at 13, lost her virginity at 14 and was caught doing cocaine on a private jet at age 16. At the moment, this might all just be hearsay, but we'll find out the actual contents of the tell-all on September 16th when it hits bookstores.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
