Big Freedia To Publish 'God Save The Queen Diva' Memoir w/ Gallery Books
Big Freedia announced plans this week to publish a memoir tentatively titled Big Freedia: God Save The Queen Diva via Gallery Books - a division of Simon & Schuster. The news follows the success of Big Freedia's popular FUSE reality series Big Freedia: Queen Of Bounce, the release of her Just Be Free debut LP and the passing of her mother last spring. The book will document Big Freedia's life to date, from her early years as a choir boy and cheerleader to the main stage as arguably the biggest name in New Orleans bounce. Chronicling professional and personal relationships, the book will follow Big Freedia's rise. Big Freedia breaks down the importance of the forthcoming tome:
“I know many people have come to know me through my TV show,” says Big Freedia. "But my memoir will go in depth—nothing and no one will be spared, including me.”
Big Freedia will pen the memoir with long-time publicist Nicole Bain. Purchase the Just Be Free LP via iTunes. Stay tuned for more from Big Freedia as details emerge.
