So Bretman Rock Is Apparently Releasing a Memoir. Are You Not Entertained?
At this point, the real question is what Bretman Rock hasn't done yet. He's a model, activist, fitness guru, pole dancer, and all-around baddie, among other superlatives and hyphens. Now we get to add Bretman Rock, the author, to the list, as well. The internet star recently announced the launch of his memoir, You’re That Bitch & Other Cute Lessons About Being Unapologetically Yourself. And it's dropping very soon.
According to a report, the book is said to be a collection of essays, how-tos, recipes, and more, speaking in his signature Bretman voice. It was so funny that Chelsea Handler said of the book: "Bretman Rock is one of the most original, influential voices on social media. This book is hilarious and that bitch made me laugh out loud.” Quite the stamp of approval.
We can expect to read about Rock's childhood in the Philippines, his family life, and his experiences of being an immigrant. It will also be revealing some other sides to the star, like his days on the varsity team or his honor student era. The book will also be touching on his bouts with cancel culture, heartache, and, of course, his identity.

In an interview with Esquire US back in 2021, the icon opened up about his youth.
"I honestly think my upbringing and everything that makes me, me is this big orchestra. Everything just makes sense for a reason. The fact that I grew up in the Philippines, which is a very Catholic faith country, [means] my parents are not supposed to be accepting of gay," he said. "I literally would go to church with blush on my face because my grandma put blush on my face, and that's how I grew up. And you would think growing up very Filipino, I wouldn't grow up with the accepting family that I do, but I did.
He added: "And then when I moved to America, that was when I also met more of my mom's side of the family and they were exactly the same. They were just very accepting. Never once did they ever like make me feel any less of myself. If anything, they've always encouraged me to be gay. If anything they encouraged me to be even gay-er."
You’re That Bitch & Other Cute Lessons About Being Unapologetically Yourself is set to be released on Valentine's Day 2023.
