Spears Book Not a Parenting Guide, But a "Warning"

Was Lynne Spears' book, Pop Culture Mom, "delayed indefinitely" because of 16-year-old Jamie Lynn's pregnancy bombshell? That conclusion was drawn by those pegging the book as a "guide to parenting," a topic she now would seem especially ill-equipped to comment on. But Spears' publisher is trying to set the record straight, telling TV's Extra, "The media have inaccurately reported that [it] is a parenting book... but it's simply not true."Instead, Pop Culture Mom is officially described as "a memoir — and a warning," "a much-needed corrective to a world obsessed with the wrong priorities," and "a window into the real-life world of fame and worldly success, including the toll it extracts from some who aspire to it." Ooh, I know what Ausiello is getting next Christmas!Related:• Jamie Lynn Spears Pregnant at 16: "It Was a Shock," Says Britney's Sis
