"I needed to really grow up myself so I could be the woman that my daughter deserves."
"Sleepover" comes just a few days before the premiere of Jamie Lynn's one hour TLC special titled Jamie Lynn Spears: When The Lights Go Out, which airs on TLC on Sunday, June 26th at 10/9c. It details her turbulent life following the announcement she was pregnant, to the calm and stable life she's made for herself now at home in Louisiana.
"I started from the last time the world really knew me and I told my story from there to where I am now. And that bridges the gap," says Spears. "People met me as a child, but they don't understand how I became the adult I am today. Telling the story of being in Nashville, writing constantly, and being a mother and being honest about what it took to be where I am now... It's important for me to introduce myself as an artist and as a woman, because people only remember me as a little girl."
