Jamie Lynn Spears Addresses Rumors That Britney Is Retiring From Music
Britney Spears’ days of making music aren’t behind her. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 38-year-old singer’s sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, shares that, though Britney isn’t making music right now, she has no plans to retire from the business completely.
“Right now, she’s quarantining in L.A. But, in general, she’s kind of just relaxing. And I think that’s good. Britney deserves that. She’s worked her a** off,” says Jamie Lynn, who recently told ET that she was quarantining with her sister. “So if she wants to make another album, great. But if she doesn’t feel like it, she doesn’t have to. She’s given the world a lot. I don’t think there are plans for anything — at the moment.”
“Obviously, right now, she’s just trying to quarantine. She’s taking it day by day,” the 29-year-old singer-actress continues. “And when she wants to make music, she’ll make it. I don’t’ think you can ever retire someone from their passion.”
The interview comes on the heels of the 20th anniversary of Britney’s album, Oops!… I Did It Again, which, Jamie Lynn says, was an incredible time in their lives.
“I look back at that time as the best time of my life. All of the highlights run through my head like a movie montage. Before Oops! came out, I was like, ‘My sister sings, that’s so cool.’ But after that album was released, that’s when it really clicked for me that she was on her way to becoming an icon,” Jamie Lynn says. “With Oops!, Britney really came into her own, who she was as a young woman, and she was getting to share that with the world.”
“… Oops! is when Britney’s fame went from household name to absolute superstardom, in my opinion as a young girl observing it all. That’s when things around me started to change,” she adds. “She had to have security everywhere, hotels were a little nicer, and we got to fly in the nice part of the plane. I remember thinking, even at 9 years old, ‘This can’t be our reality.'”
Jamie Lynn notes that she considers her sister “a living legend,” a compliment Britney doesn’t seem to get. – Source
