Things are getting even more “toxic” between the Spears sisters.
Britney Spears denied she ever held a knife up to her “scum” younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears, after the “Zoey 101” alum made the accusation in a TV interview while publicizing her upcoming book.
“I’ve never been around you ever with a knife or would I ever even think to do such !!!” Britney, 40, wrote in a statement posted to her Twitter Friday, adding, “The only knife I ever saw you with at home was cutting the biggest pieces of squash I ever saw in my life and it was way too big for me to cut.”
Britney then told Jamie Lynn, 30, to stop telling “crazy lies” just to sell her memoir, “Things I Should Have Said,” and called her out for allegedly making up stories about her.
“NOW and only NOW I do know only a scum person would make up such things about someone …. I’m actually very confused about you making that up because it’s honestly not like you at all !!!!”
She continued, “Around the kids ???? Jamie Lynn, seriously ??? Come on !!! Congrats on introducing your older sister the concept of getting LOW … LOWER … LOWEST … because you win on that one, babe !!!!”
“It’s important to remember that I was a kid in that moment,” Jamie Lynn said during the sit-down. “I was scared. That was an experience I had, but I also was fearful to, like, really say anything because I didn’t want to upset anybody or anything. But I also was so upset that she didn’t feel safe.”
“I hate to burst my sister’s bubble, but my book is not about her. I can’t help that I was born a Spears too, and that some of my experiences involve my sister,” she wrote in a statement on Instagram Friday. “I’ve worked hard since before I was even a teenager, and I’ve built my career in spite of just being someone’s little sister.”
Jamie Lynn also asked for peace between them, though it seems Britney has no intention of making amends.
“Things I Should Have Said” hits stores next Tuesday.
Charlie Puth has dropped a new single, “Light Switch.” The upbeat pop song, which sees Puth crooning about his attraction to a love interest, was produced by Puth and co-written with longtime collaborator JKash and Jake Torrey. Listen here.
“You turn me on like a light switch,” Puth sings over a pulsating beat. “When you’re moving your body around and around / I don’t want to fight this.”
Puth documented the making of the song on TikTok for several months ahead of its release.
“On the songwriting level, it was really cool to share this song with the fans while I made it,” the singer noted in a statement, “So they felt like they were involved at the very beginning of the song, like they almost wrote it with me.”
“Light Switch” is the first new song to be released from Puth’s upcoming album, Charlie, out later this year via Atlantic Records. The LP marks the singer’s first full-length release since the Grammy-nominated Voicenotes in 2018.
The 30-year-old said Charlie is his most personal album to date. “I’ve never had a chance to put out music that is truly me and every song on this album is my personality with some melody attached to it,” he confirmed.
Last fall, Puth teamed up with Elton John for “After All,” from John’s album of collaborations, The Lockdown Sessions. John and Puth met at a Los Angeles restaurant in early March 2020 and soon discovered they lived near each other. They began collaborating at the start of the pandemic, and “After All” was the first song either artist completed during lockdown.
