Jamie Lynn Spears Pens Song About Big Sis Britney Spears
“I’m so happy to have all of y’all here, thank y’all for coming out tonight,” said the 21-year-old mom to her audience. “This next song is called ‘I Look Up to You,’ and you can imagine who I wrote it about, so I hope y’all like it a lot.”
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Jamie Lynn wrote the song about her older sister, our Queen, Britney Spears. The siblings, who have always been close, shared a lot of ups and downs over the past couple of years — including Brit’s infamous breakdown and Jamie Lynn’s teenage pregnancy — so it’s charming to see how much she looks up to her big sis.
“Scared little girl living on a big old world / You’ve outgrown your room / It all happened way too soon,” sings a pensive Jamie Lynn in a country twang. “They took away your innocence / But we’ve still got a strong defense / If I didn’t get sieved in this / I’d be lonely.”
Jamie Lynn shows promise as a pop-country star. She’s a true southerner whose past is filled with enough heartache to pen a few more songs (she plans to release a country album). Also, it’s kind of nice to know she’s trying to make it on her own and in a different genre than her sister.
We’re still eagerly waiting on Britney’s response to the song, though.
