Popular New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia’s memoir, Big Freedia: God Save the Queen Diva, officially goes on sale today. The Queen Diva's autobiography deals with her upbringing and the “relationship between her personal life and her career as an artist,” according to a summary on the Octavia Books website. Freedia will be appearing at Octavia Books (513 Octavia St.) on Fri., July 10 at 6 p.m., where she will be reading from the book and signing copies.

Also available for sale this week is a new product called “Big Freedia In Your Pocket,” a small plastic soundboard that, when pressed, emits some of Big Freedia’s catchphrases (a la "Cajun in Your Pocket" and "Mr. Okra in Your Pocket").

Among the familiar Freedia-isms are “You already know!” “Release your wiggle!” and “Big Freedia, Queen Diva, you besta believa!” The gadget is available on the Fleurty Girl website for $10.
