I wanted to say hi, because things that are being said have just gotten out of control!!! Wow!!! There’s rumors, death threats to my family and my team, and just so many things crazy things being said. I am trying to take a moment for myself, but everything that’s happening is just making it harder for me. Don’t believe everything you read and hear. These fake emails everywhere were crafted by Sam Lutfi years ago... I did not write them. He was pretending to be me and communicating with my team with a fake email address. My situation is unique, but I promise I’m doing what’s best at this moment 🌸🌸🌸 You may not know this about me, but I am strong, and stand up for what I want! Your love and dedication is amazing, but what I need right now is a little bit of privacy to deal with all the hard things that life is throwing my way. If you could do that, I would be forever grateful. Love you ❤️❤️❤️

In the age of social distancing, her cheesy 1999 song about love and email sounds better than ever
If you didn’t parade around your room in 1999 wearing blue eyeshadow while blasting “… Baby One More Time” on your stereo, you missed out. It was a golden age for girl groups and boy bands, a time when pop stars flourished and tabloids knew no bounds. The Internet was growing popular, and the fear of Y2K came with it. Oh, and Britney Spears prophesied the future.
It’s been 21 years since a girl from small-town Louisiana became the biggest pop star of her moment. Teenagers all across the world sang along to her debut album then, and people of all ages are still singing along now to the addictive chorus of its title song and the giddy, love-struck lyrics of “(You Drive Me) Crazy.” Under all the “oh bay-by bay-by’s,” though, there lies a forgotten love ballad: “E-Mail My Heart.”
This particular song is not the best of Britney’s pop anthems; any serious ranking of her discography would have to put it lower than “Soda Pop.” When the song came up on a 2018 episode of Rolling Stone’s Music Now podcast, writers Rob Sheffield and Brittany Spanos said they loved it, to which host Brian Hiatt interjected, “You do not love that song.” Somehow, they are all right. We might hate “E-Mail My Heart,” but we love it, too. Even as we’re put off by its over-the-top Nineties production, we love the way it predicted our digitally-dependent existence. Yes, it’s the most ridiculous track on her debut album, but its relevance cannot be denied. Now more than ever, this cheesy ballad about love and email is the Britney song we need most.
Britney was years ahead of her time with this one. “E-Mail My Heart” has more or less the same idea as the 1975’s recent single “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know),” which, as singer Matty Healy helpfully explained in a recent interview, is about “getting naked on FaceTime.” Healy’s opening lyrics — “I see her online/All the time” — could fit in seamlessly with Britney’s song, right after she says, “I can see you in my mind/Coming on the line.” On Doja Cat’s 2020 TikTok hit “Cyber Sex,” she tempts her partner to “get freaky on camera.” The medium has changed, but the message is the same: When we are far apart, the internet brings us closer. Britney might not have known it in 1999, but she was right. Emailing your heart and getting freaky on camera is the best we can do in 2020.
There’s something newly nostalgic about listening to “E-Mail My Heart” now. It’s a time capsule from the late Nineties, giving today’s listeners a hint of what it was like to send an email at the turn of the century. The rest of the album works that way, too, as a glimpse into life before the pandemic, FaceTime, and Zoom. No one knew then that emailing would eventually become iMessaging, the landline would become an ancient artifact, and FaceTime dates would replace physical dates, but here we are in a time where “E-Mail My Heart” rings true around the world. Only Britney Spears could pull off a cultural reset like this one.

Jamie Lynn Spears is opening up about what it's been like quarantining with her sister, Britney Spears, amid the coronavirus pandemic.
ET exclusively spoke with the 29-year-old actress via Zoom on Tuesday, where she revealed how the two have been passing the time with their loved ones. Britney, who resides in Los Angeles with sons Sean, 14, and Jayden, 13, recently traveled to Louisiana to temporarily be with Jamie and the rest of their family.
"Britney was like, 'I want to come home, I don't want to be by myself out here,' because all of her family's pretty much here. So she was able to come home for almost two weeks or so," said Jamie, who's mom to daughters Maddie, 11, and Ivey, 2. "She was here for my birthday and for Ivey's birthday. But then, of course, she has her children and all that stuff and her home, so she went back to Los Angeles just a couple weeks ago."
"I think she went back with the intentions of like, this was only going to be another week or so, and then they added on more time [to the stay-at-home orders]," she added. "We're all just trying to abide by the rules and do what we're supposed to do. Having our family has been the biggest blessing, too. I mean, we're driving each other absolutely insane, about things you wouldn't normally get mad about, but at the end of the day, at least we have each other, you know? That's been really fortunate."
As for Jamie, she is getting ready to celebrate her big return to TV. The actress stars as the pregnant other woman Noreen Fitzgibbons in Sweet Magnolias, premiering May 19 on Netflix. She told ET that she naturally found herself tapping into her own maternal instincts while filming the new series, which also stars Chris Klein, JoAnna Garcia Swisher and Brooke Elliott.
"That's the fun part about acting; you get to pull from your own life and obviously being a mom is a big part of mine," the former Zoey 101 star gushed. "I fell in love with the character. I felt like I had been her in many ways. She's a young girl, she's probably not making all the right decisions, but who has?"
"I think that's what's really great about the show, is that it doesn't just show one side. It shows all the character's sides. So therefore you get to know the background behind each story and I think that's what important," she added. "For me, growing up, I guess I wouldn't say I had the most typical childhood and I think that that's why I connect with this character. She's misunderstood in a lot of ways, but once you see her, you just love her."
no candles. So I think that we can prevent any future fires."
As ET previously reported, Britney shared the wild details of her at-home incident in a video posted to Instagram on April 29. "I haven't been in here for, like, six months because I burnt my gym down, unfortunately," she explained. "I had two candles and, yeah, one thing led to another and I burned it down."
A source told ET at the time that Britney has very specific reasons for lighting candles all over her home.
"During tough times in her life she always tells friends, 'Light a candle for me.' She has candles all over her house, because she finds the scent and light calming when life gets stressful," the source said. "Her fans always send her candles as gifts, because they know she loves to burn them at night and sit by candlelight."
"Her family worries because they know Britney can get distracted and forget," added the source. "These are all things she works on in therapy."
