Reflecting on the infamous onstage kiss between Britney and Madonna, Jamie Lynn mentioned that while it might seem insignificant in today’s world, at that time, it became an iconic moment despite its simplicity.

Addressing the topic of fame, Jamie Lynn mentioned that Britney encountered fame first due to their age gap, as Britney had been famous since Jamie Lynn was around 6 or 7 years old.

When asked by another contestant if she gets along with Britney now, Jamie Lynn responded simply, saying, “I love my sister.”

Despite their close bond while growing up and collaborations in projects like Britney’s film debut, Crossroads, and Jamie Lynn’s work on Zoey 101, their relationship faced challenges. Their strained relationship came to light after Britney’s conservatorship ended, particularly surrounding the release of Jamie Lynn’s memoir and public disagreements.

Britney had expressed in her memoir, The Woman In Me, about feeling let down when she sought Jamie Lynn’s support during a challenging time. Additionally, she mentioned feeling hurt by Jamie Lynn’s actions, perceiving them as capitalizing on her struggles.

However, Britney also expressed a desire to mend their relationship, emphasizing her love for Jamie Lynn and her family and her efforts to cultivate more compassion than anger towards her sister and others who she feels have wronged her.
