Britney Spears has appeared to shade her sister Jamie Lynn Spears’ new tell-all memoir.
On Monday, the Zoey 101 star shared the cover of her book ‘Things I Should Have Said’, ahead of its release in January 2022.
Jamie’s publisher Worthy Publishing said the memoir will touch on her “role as Britney’s kid sister.”
Hours after Jamie’s announcement, Britney teased her own writing venture, writing on Instagram: “I’m thinking of releasing a book 📚 next year 😜.”
“But I’m having issues coming up with a title so maybe my fans could help !!!! Option #1 … ‘S–t, I really don’t know’ Option #2 … ‘I really care what people think’ 😂🙄🤷🏼♀️ !!!! What do you guys think 🤔🤔🤔 ????”
Back in July, Jamie Lynn faced backlash after Worthy Publishing and Barnes and Noble’s said her memoir would be named after on of her sister Britney Spears’ most famous lyrics.

They claimed the book would be titled ‘I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring It Out’.
‘I Must Confess’ is a line from the chorus of Britney’s 1998 debut single ‘…Baby One More Time’.
After the backlash, publishers Worthy Publishing insisted the information that was released about the book was not correct, including the title.
In a statement, the publisher said: “Worthy Publishing, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, became aware earlier today that premature information about Jamie Lynn Spears’s still-in-development book project has been erroneously released online to book retail sites.”
“We deeply regret that incorrect and incomplete information about her book has appeared in the public space, particularly at this sensitive time for Jamie Lynn and her family,” they added, referring to Britney’s ongoing conservatorship battle.
Britney has previously expressed frustration with her family members, including Jamie Lynn.
In July, the Toxic singer wrote that she didn’t “like that my sister showed up at an awards show and performed MY SONGS to remixes,” seemingly referencing the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards, where Jamie did a tribute performance.
She continued: “My so-called support system hurt me deeply… This conservatorship killed my dreams…so all I have is hope and hope is the only thing in this world that is very hard to kill…yet people still try!!!!”
The day before her post about Jamie’s performance, Britney wrote that she had felt betrayed by her loved ones throughout her conservatorship.
She wrote: “There’s nothing worse than when the people closest to you who never showed up for you post things in regard to your situation whatever it may be and speak righteously for support. There’s nothing worse than that!!!!”
“How dare the people you love the most say anything at all…did they even put a hand out to even lift me up at the TIME!!!??? How dare you make it public that NOW you CARE…did you put your hand out when I was drowning???? Again…NO.”
Britney’s father Jamie was suspended from her conservatorship last month, 13 years after it was established.
Britney officially filed a petition to replace her father Jamie as the conservator of her estate in July.
According to court documents obtained by E! News, Britney’s estate is worth $57.4 million – which includes $2.7 million in cash assets, and $54.7 million in non-cash assets.
The 39-year-old was placed under a conservatorship after she suffered an alleged breakdown in 2008.
A conservatorship is granted to those who are incapable of making decisions, such as people with mental disabilities.
The arrangement put her estate, financial assets, and some personal assets under the control of her father Jamie, and lawyer Andrew Wallet – who has since resigned from the role.
The Grammy winner’s conservatorship has been under review since 2019 after she accused her father of forcing her to enter a mental health facility.
