Books are all the rage in Hollywood; some dumb, some REALLY dumb, and at least one hopefully inspiring.
Earlier today, we announced that the Kardashian sisters are planning a relationship-themed tome. Insert your own joke now.
Kelly LeBrock, the ex-wife of shady actor Steven Seagal, also plans to exploit her husband’s alleged seedy side by penning a biography about the father of her three kids. How charming.
But Susan Boyle is here to rescue us from all this inappropriate madness. She’ll tell her own story in The Woman I was Born to Be, a true autobiography due this fall.
”I think I’ve grown up a lot in the last year, become more of a lady, and I’m not so frightened anymore,” she said, adding:
“I’m writing this book to try to show that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, and I hope it will benefit other people. My story demonstrates that you shouldn’t just look at the label, you should look at the whole person, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually, and I hope that telling it will show that dreams are not impossible, if you’ve got courage and a willingness to go on no matter what the circumstances.”
Amen, SuBo! Will you purchase her self-written tale?

Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner who?
If Eclipse supporting actress Jodelle Ferland draws strong reviews in this summer’s release, she may get a major movie vehicle of her own soon enough.
That’s because Twilight saga author Stephenie Meyer is releasing an additional element of the vampire tale that just may bring the teen front and center.
The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner: An Eclipse Novella is a 192-pager about the newborn who’s recruited for the army hunting down Bella and Edward.
So no Taylor Lautner shirtless. But still, worth a read?
An Eclipse novella hits stores in about two months.
The story began as an exercise Meyer performed to explore the darker side of the battle in the third installment of her hit series, which grew into more.
“I’d always considered The Short Life of Bree Tanner as something for the fans,” she said of the book, which hits shelves June 5 (25 days before Eclipse).
And, like you needed more incentive for additional Twilight material …
A dollar from every book sold in the U.S. will go to American Red Cross International Response Funds to support disaster relief efforts in Haiti and Chile.
That’s even sweeter than Edward and Bella in bed in that new clip!

Ricky Martin, who has dodged questions of his sexuality for years now, officially revealed that he is a gay man in a statement on his website earlier today.
The Puerto Rican singer,, who is planning to write a memoir about his life, says the birth of his twin sons (via surrogate) led to his decision to come out.
Ricky’s kids were born in August 2008, and similar to Clay Aiken, he says he did not want to live a lie while raising a child … in Ricky’s case two of them.
His coming out statement is well-written and at times poignant. You have to respect the honesty and emotion behind it, along with Martin’s reasoning …
“A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life.
From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside.
Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth.
And this is something worth celebrating.
For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice.
