    Britney Spears Responded To Her Sister's Book Release With A Shady And Dead-On Response, And This Is The Britney I Know And Love

    She's a master of the subtle drag.

    Over the years, fans have speculated that Britney Spears has been using her Instagram account to give a peek into her conservatorship.

    There was the time she gave this monologue about her astrological sign, Sagittarius, and described herself as "loving freedom."

    Now that we’ve heard Britney’s official testimony this video hits different https://t.co/O9UPPgEQ5u

    A nod to #FreeBritney? Maybe.

    The time she seemingly acknowledged the airing of the Framing Britney Spears documentary.

    After yesterday’s events, nobody can tell me this video wasn’t 100% in response to Framjng Britney. Her mind.

    Soon after the documentary aired, Britney posted this video saying, "The moment we've all been waiting for last week...the Super Bowl! I was SO excited, but honestly I was rooting for Kansas City but I was also rooting for the other team. It was a little confusing for me. I love sharing."

    It seemed VERY sarcastic and VERY MUCH not about the Super Bowl.

    And there was the time she did a fan Q&A and said her favorite Disney movie was Frozen because of the broken relationship between the two sisters.

    "My favorite Disney movie is probably Frozen because I really like the fact that the two sisters, their relationship, and the one goes to a castle because she can't deal anymore."

    About Jamie Lynn? Maybe. But this brings us to the latest subtle Jamie Lynn drag.

    A few months ago, it was reported that Jamie Lynn was releasing a book, titled I Must Confess: Family, Fame, and Figuring It Out. The title included a "Baby One More Time" lyric and was seen as extremely disrespectful given the talk about Britney's conservatorship, yet another example of the Spears family using Britney's name for their gain.

    The title of the book was apparently changed, and Jamie Lynn announced on Monday that it would be called Things I Should Have Said.

    Which, like, not now girl?! Read the room!

    A day after Jamie Lynn said she was releasing a book, Britney said she was releasing a book of her own.

    "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 !!!!"

    Fans immediately thought this was a direct response to the Jamie Lynn book news. Remember, hers is called Things I Should Have Said.

    It's all super mysterious and speculation, but Britney's no stranger to being cryptic online.

    From 2004–2007, Britney would leave cryptic messages on her official website. You can read them all archived here.

    There's one iconic message Britney left in 2007 that fans are comparing to her latest Instagram message. It has a VERY similar feel.

    Britney asked her fans to help her name an album

    "You'll never see it my way because you're not me" from the 2007 website posting is giving "I really care what people think" in the 2021 Instagram.

    Omg this caption it’s giving “omg is like Lindsay Lohan like okay like” it’s giving “what if the joke is on you”

    Either way, everyone's happy the same ol' Brit is back.
