Not long after the #FreeBritney movement started last year, Britney Spears herself said in an Instagram video that the rumors aren’t true, she can stand up for herself, and claimed that emails that bashed her father, Daddy Spears, and looked like they came from her were actually faked by Sam Lutfi, her ex-manager and the leech she eventually got a restraining order against. The #FreeBritney movement, who believes she’s being held against her will and wants her conservatorship to end, accused Britney’s puppet masters of forcing her to make that video. Well, Britney is now in support of #FreeBritney, which probably knocked the grits stirring-ladle right out of Daddy Spears’ paw because last month, he said that the “conspiracy theorists” of #FreeBritney wouldn’t know shit about his daughter’s situation if it came out of their asses.
Out of context, this news sounds like a Zoey 101 reboot, in which an all-grown-up Zoey Brooks learns that she’s been assigned the job as a money manager for her long-lost popstar sister, and is forced to take night school classes in Accounting 101. In reality, it’s kind of the same, except Jamie Lynn Spears is well aware of Britney Spears and the management mess she’s been dealing with.
The fan-led #FreeBritney movement is back with a vengeance after Britney Spears posted some Instagram pics that worried the #FreeBritney brigade, like that whole “Oopsies, I burnt down my gym, y’all!” debacle.
According to Us Weekly, Britney and her father, Jamie Spears, are scheduled to appear (remotely) at a conservatorship status hearing today. And a week ago, Britney’s mom, Lynne Spears, filed papers requesting to be able to have a say in her daughter’s financial decisions. At least Brit Brit has Jamie Lynn Spears, who once again took it upon herself to defend her older sister in an Instagram post about mental health and privacy.
Twelve years ago, Zoey 101 star Jamie Lynn Spears was on track to becoming a multiple Oscar and Emmy-winning (or, at least a People’s Choice Award-winning) actress before her scandalous teen pregnancy put those plans on ice. But it looks like our prayers have been answered, because she’s back in the acting game! She’s co-starring on the new Netflix series, Sweet Magnolias. Nope, not STEEL Magnolias. SWEET Magnolias, based on a romantic book series that also happens to be about small-town Southern women (*cough* rip off *cough* #justice4m’lynn *cough*).
While promoting the series, 29-year-old Jamie Lynn was asked about older sister Britney Spears’ career. She says that even though 38-year-old Brit isn’t making any new music, rumors of her retirement are greatly exaggerated.
TMZ reports that Jamie Lynn Spears is in talks to make a career comeback, y’all. Jamie Lynn might reprise her role as Zoey Brooks, the sort-of-quirky (not at all) basic bitch who was the star of her own show Zoey 101 about an all boys school which finally allowed girls in. I genuinely enjoyed watching it over ten years ago, for some reason which I can’t remember. But I’ve tried to watch old episodes now and hate it. Well too bad for me, because everything from my youth is destined to circle back to me except for my actual youth–and we can all prepare ourselves for a potential new Zoey 101. This time with an edge.
Don’t worry people, Britney Spears is okay! …I think. After rumors started from the Britney’s Gram podcast that her sole conservator Daddy Spears is keeping her in a mental institution against her will after she refused to take her meds, she has popped up on Instagram to say she’s taking some time to herself and that she can stand up for herself. I’m sure the #FreeBritney conspiracy theorists spent their night analyzing how many times Brit blinked and tried to see if she was screaming for help through Morse Code.
