I wish there'd been more about DW, but it's still a wonderful read, something that will make you happy, sad, laugh and cry, and change the way you think about both Billie and what you read in the press.
Easily the autobiography of the year.
Good to see her set the record straight about what its really like being a pop star, married to chris evans and breaking into her her true passion of acting.
Thoroughly enjoyed it and actually couldn't put it down!
This is an inspiring read and tells the music and acting business as they are; take away all the glamour and you can see what it does to individuals. The book is inspiring in the way that it tells of Billie quitting her career as a pop star and focusing and trying her hardest at her passion of acting.
Can't recommend this enough! Even if you're a not a fan of Piper you will still truly enjoy this!
What a brilliant book, Billie seems to talk and think in much the same way as I do. What I love about her, is that she is so honest, and isn't victim to her own hype. She calls a spade a spade, and you get the feeling most of what she is saying is more like a one on one conversation with a friend. I would be very interested to meet her in the flesh, I think she would be very cool.
I never knew what went on behind the scenes of her pop career, and never understood until now why she never made a pop comeback.
Love her, she is awesome. After reading this and watching "The Secret Diary Of A Call Girl" I want to see everything she's in.
