When Britney and Jamie Lynn are together, they’re chillin, they’re chillin. Even when the youngest Spears was little, she didn’t see Britney for the mega popstar she became.
“Britney had been working on music since I could remember,” Jamie Lynn tells CMT.” This was just what she did. But when I heard her on the radio, I didn’t understand. My friends were like. ‘Your sister’s a singer.’ And I was like, ‘What do you mean a singer? Like a Mariah Carey singer?’ That’s how — in my 7-year old brain — I related to what my sister was doing. At that time, I didn’t even know of any singers’ names, so I don’t know why I knew about Mariah Carey. I was so little.”
Because she was so little, JL says she only remembers the positive aspects of her sister’s fame from a young age.
“Even as a young child, I knew it was good to see Britney being recognized for the hard work she’d put in since she was literally 4 years old. More than anything, I saw that,” she said. “I don’t remember it any other way, mostly because I was very shielded from any of the negative parts.”
So is a second duet in the works for the Spears sisters?
“I would never say never,” JL continued, “but right now I’m just focusing on the songs I already have. If something made sense, I would, of course, love to collaborate with my sister.”
