KEY POINTS

  • Britney Spears watched her sister Jamie Lynn's interview on "Good Morning America" 
  • Spears said her sister never had to work for anything because everything was given to her
  • The "Toxic" singer added she was always the bigger person, and her family ruined her dreams

Britney Spears called out her sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, following the latter’s tell-all interview to promote her upcoming book.

Spears, 40, released a lengthy statement on Twitter in response to Jamie Lynn's interview on "Good Morning America" ahead of the release of her book, "Things I Should Have Said." According to the "Toxic" singer, she had a high degree fever and was being a "drama queen" because she was sick, but "it was actually kind of nice having a fever so high cause I had to surrender to not caring" while watching Jamie Lynn's interview.

Spears then reacted to the tell-all by sharing the two things that bothered her while watching it. First, she was bothered by Jamie Lynn saying her behavior was "out of control." Second, Spears did not like how her sister responded to the backlash she received for singing her songs.

"Anyways, the 2 things that did bother me that my sister said was how my behavior was out of control. She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time...so why [are] they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???" she wrote.

The second concern was about Jamie Lynn doing remixes of her songs. The author sang a medley of her tracks at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards. Jamie Lynn told interviewer Juju Chang that the backlash was "somewhat confusing," as quoted by E! News. "I don't think she's personally upset with me about that. Truthfully, I don't know why that bothers her," she added.

"I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything. Everything was always given to her," Spears explained.

Spears was not pleased with what she saw on TV. The pop singer said she was always the "bigger person" and "they all got to DO IT and PLAY ME and I always sat there and took it. But see, now it's a joke."

Spears added her family "did ruin my dreams." She also recalled when she asked her sister why she did it while waiting to change her show, and Jamie Lynn only told her, "Well, it wasn't my idea."

Spears hoped that her sister's book would do well and announced that she won't be doing Instagram for a while because "this business has always been extremely hateful to me." She noted that she had given "more than enough" but was never given back what she wanted.

She also mentioned the Bible verse "ask and you shall receive," saying it did not apply to her because whenever she asked for something, the people around her won't give it to her. Spears recalled asking her security to buy her Aleve because she was sick but the response was "NO." In another tweet, she announced that her fiancé Sam Ashgari got her the medicine.

"My family ruined my dreams," she added. "My family loves to pull me down and hurt me always so I am disgusted with them."

In her interview, Jamie Lynn claimed she went out of her way to help Spears end her conservatorship. However, Spears had been open about her disappointment in her family for her 13-year conservatorship. In one post on Instagram after her conservatorship ended, Spears went after her family, saying they "should all be in jail."
