There never will be...
In an interview with Billboard, Jamie Lynn Spears denied that there was any kind of sisterly rivalry with Britney Spears. Here are highlights:
On a rivalry with her sister: "Me and Brit, I'm sure no one believes me when I say, there is no rivalry! You have to remember that we are 10 years apart, so I always saw her as a second mom. We have fun like only sisters can, but we don't have that young sibling rivalry. She was one of the first people to call and tell me how proud she was of the success of ['More'], so charts won't come between me and her – never will!"
On going into country instead of pop: "I get this question a lot, as you can imagine. I think people forget that I grew up in Louisiana, and that my father is as southern as they come (laughs). Country music was a big part of me and my dad's relationship, and still is. I understand where people would assume I'd [be a] pop [act]. I mean, my sister is a pop icon, so I completely get where people would've expected that!"
On her song with Britney, "Chillin' With You": "It wasn't some thought-out plan for us to do a song together or anything. It was super natural the way it all went down. I had been playing her some things that I had been writing, and she really liked them, so she asked me to come to the studio with her while she worked on her album. I went with her for a few days, and she asked me to sing on one of the songs. So, I jumped in and did it! It was fun, and the song is fun. I feel blessed to be on a song with my sister for the first time."
