It seems as though Britney Spears and her sister Jamie Lynn may be on the road to making up after getting into a heated online exchange. 

On Saturday, Britney shared a lengthy Twitter post in which she clarified her feelings about Jamie Lynn, who recently did an interview in which she discussed the singer, their relationship and the past while promoting her upcoming book Things I Should Have Said, out January 18.

"Jamie Lynn... I don't think your book is about me at all...I said some harsh things because you obviously hurt me by the things you are making up about me," the "Toxic" singer tweeted.

Britney also clarified, "When I said only a scum person would make up things like that about someone, I could have sworn I said 'but you're not.'" 

The star added that she loves Jamie "unconditionally," but seemed confused that her "loyalty is still with the people that hurt me the most!!!"

"I don't care anymore!!! Say whatever you want to say just know I do know your real heart more than anyone!!!," Britney continued. "Just know I love you and I think you know that already more than anything!!!"

That same day, Jamie Lynn, 30, responded in an Instagram Story writing, "Britney- Just call me, I have attempted many times to speak to you directly and handle this privately like sisters should, but you still choose to do everything on a public platform," according to People

"In the meantime, please stop continuing the narrative that I haven't been there for you or that I'm making things up. I'm happy to share how many times I've reached out to you, supported you and tried to help you. This is embarrassing and has to stop. I love you," she concluded.

On Thursday night, Britney Spears wrote a lengthy Twitter post in which she reacted to what her sister Jamie Lynn Spears had said in her interview with ABC News' Juju Chang. On Friday, Jamie Lynn responded to what her sister wrote by saying that Britney's "accusatory posts" are causing her family to receive death threats.

In her post, Britney wrote, "The 2 things that did bother me [in the interview was] that my sister said was how my behavior was out of control. She was never around me much 15 years ago at that time .... so why are they even talking about that unless she wants to sell a book at my expense??? REALLY???"

Britney said she was also bothered by Jamie Lynn's discussion of how Britney was upset that she'd performed remixes of her songs on an awards show.

Britney wrote, "I know it may sound like a silly thing to most people but I wrote a lot of my songs and my sister was the baby. She never had to work for anything." She added, "Everything was always given to her."

Britney concluded by saying, "Hope your book does well, Jamie Lynn!!!...my family ruined by dreams 100 billion percent and try to make me look like the crazy one...my family loves to pull me down and hurt me always so I am disgusted with them."

On Friday, Jamie Lynn responded in a lengthy Instagram post, writing, "Brit...you know behind the scenes I have always been here. It's become exhausting when conversations, and texts we have in private don't match what you post on social media."

She continued, "The things being said are absolutely not the truth and I have to clarify that, because now it's getting harder for me to rationalize to my oldest daughter why our family continues to get death threats, as a result of their aunt's vague and accusatory posts, especially when we know she could tell the truth and put an end to all of it in one second if she wanted to."

Jamie Lynn also clarified that her book is "not about [Britney]," adding, "I can't help that I was born a Spears too and that some of my experiences involve my sister." She also said that contrary to what Britney claimed, she had worked hard to build her own career.

"I don't want drama, but I'm speaking my truth to heal my traumas," she concluded, adding, "I will always love my big sister and be here for her. It's time to put an end to the unhealthy chaos that has controlled my life for so long."

In Adele's video for "Easy On Me," she's seen leaving one house, driving in a car, and then sitting in a room with red walls, billowing curtains, stacked up chairs and a chandelier.  If that looks like your dream home, you'll be glad to know that it's currently on the market.

The New York Post reports the Canadian estate where the video was filmed is on the market for $4.3 million. Located about an hour-and-a-half from Montreal, the 173-acre estate includes six different structures, including a castle, a vineyard, a chapel, a guesthouse and a garage, as well as a grove of maple trees with "11,000 taps," which are used to collect one of Canada's most famous exports: maple syrup.

The video was filmed in the dining room of one of the structures: You can see the curtains, the chandelier and the red painted walls in the photos that are part of the listing, but of course, the chairs aren't stacked up, there's no sheet on the floor and there aren't any papers flying around, either.  However it does have a large portrait of Adele on the wall.

According to the Post, the listing describes the estate as a "spectacular multi-generational site with many houses for your family and friends." It's currently owned by a Canadian entrepreneur.

The "Easy on Me" and "Hello" videos were both directed by Montreal-born Xavier Dolan.

Britney Spears laid out another lengthy Instagram post Monday addressing why she’s no longer doing music.

The singer said she’s not making or performing new music because of the “awful things” that were done to her.

“So much wasted time to only embarrass me and humiliate me and I guess it seems odd to most now why I don’t even do music anymore,” she wrote.

She added that after what she’s been through, she’s “scared of people and the business.”

“They really hurt me!!!!!!” she said. “Not doing music anymore is my way of saying ‘F*** you’ in a sense when it only actually benefits my family by ignoring my real work.”

Britney also addressed one of her since-deleted posts from last week, in which she listed some of her accomplishments and promised to be her “own cheerleader.” She admitted to having “serious insecurities” and felt she may have come across as an “obnoxious 8 year old” by rattling off her career milestones, but she explained why she did it.

“Honestly my family embarrassed me and hurt me deeply… so tooting my own horn and seeing my past accomplishments reflecting back at me actually helped!!!!” she wrote.

Chris Daughtry postponed his scheduled concerts this weekend due the death of his daughter Hannah, which now is reportedly being investigated as a homicide.

Hannah, 25, was found dead inside her Tennessee home on Friday, People reported. Chris' wife Deanna, Hannah's mother, wrote on Instagram, "We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death. Our hearts are broken."

TMZ has now subsequently reported that the death was a homicide and is being investigated as such. It was also reported that Hannah's boyfriend has been arrested, but it's not clear what he was arrested for.

Hannah and her brother Griffin, 23, are Deanna's children from a previous relationship. Together, Chris and Deanna -- who married in 2000 -- have 10-year-old twins Adalynn and Noah. According to USA Today, Chris later adopted Hannah and Griffin.

"I am still processing the last 24 hours. I am absolutely devastated and heartbroken," Chris wrote on Instagram. "I just recently lost my mother to cancer but I was blessed with the chance to say goodbye and I was processing it privately.  We never got to say goodbye to our precious Hannah and it’s another huge hit to our family." 

"Thank you all for your kind words and condolences," he added. "They are truly felt and appreciated. I am now taking time be present with my family as we attempt to heal from this devastating loss. Hannah, I love you. I miss you. I wish I could hold you. This hurts so deep."

The New York Post reports that Hannah's life has been filled with tragedy in the last few years.  Her and Griffin's father, Randall Scott Price, died by suicide in 2018.  Eight months later, Hannah had a run-in with gang members and was shot in the face; leaving her with a prosthetic eye.  This past April, she and a man were arrested in a hit-and-run incident in Tennessee.

Pink lost her father James Moore, a veteran, not long ago, and she paid tribute to him on his birthday with a photo showing his grave marker.  Yesterday, Veteran's Day, she wrote another loving post honoring his memory and his service.

Posting his official military photo, Pink wrote, "Look at my handsome Papa. Thank you to all the women and men for your sacrifice and your service."

She also captioned two additional photos in the same post, writing, "The second picture is me and my Dad and brother marching in Washington. The third is his beautiful memorial box that holds his ashes."

"They used to call him twinkle toes for dancing when he was meant to be marching in line," Pink concluded. "Hug a veteran today. Consensually of course."

All we know so far is that Pink evidently has fallen out of love with her latest real estate acquisition. The New York Post reports that the Grammy winner has put her Malibu mansion up for sale for $15 million -- even though she just bought it in June for $13.7 million. 

Why the fast sale? It's unclear. The Post notes that this doesn't seem to be a case of Pink "flipping" the house, since she apparently hasn't made any renovations, and once the sale goes through -- assuming it sells for what she's asking -- she'll make a profit of less than six percent.

The beachfront mansion, which belonged to Barry Manilow until 2012, has 180-degree ocean views, front and back porches, a guest house, a courtyard with a built-in barbecue and spa.

In any case, it seems it's a problem with the property, and not the area itself: According to the real estate website Dirt, that Pink once owned $12.5 Malibu mansion, and then rented another one for $65,000 a month.

Just four months after welcoming their first child together, Jason Derulo and his girlfriend Jena Frumes have broken up.

The couple started dating in March of 2020, and Jena has been a constant presence in Jason's TikTok videos.  The two welcomed son Jason King on May 8.

On Twitter today, Jason wrote, "Jena and I have decided to part ways. She is an amazing mother but we feel being apart at this time will allow us to be the best versions of ourselves and the best parents we could be. Pls respect our privacy in this time."

Jason and Jena have the same birthday -- September 21 -- and People captured an Instagram post Jenna put up Wednesday showing the two marking the occasion in Aspen, Colorado -- a post she later deleted.

"Blessed to share the same day of birth with my lover. You are the most handsome, hardworking, talented, silly, loving human ever," Jena wrote about Jason in the post. "You truly make me whole and I'm so grateful for the love we share. You and our mini make me the happiest girl in the world and I can't wait to make more memories with you guys."

She continued, "I know I'm a tough cookie but you make me soft and accept me for who I am and I'm forever grateful for that. Cheers to another year! I love you so much, forever."

Although she deleted that post, her Insta is still filled with pics of Jason.  And Jena is still on Jason's Instagram as well.

A while back, Post Malone announced a partnership with Jägermeister in support of the return of nightlife to independent venues nationwide.  Now, you can watch a short film that's part of that partnership.

The one-minute film features Posty entering an empty bar and gesturing to the bummed-out bartender that he should just wait a minute. Then, the chart-topping artist takes the street and gathers a huge crowd of people, which he then leads to the bar, where live music is on offer.  The thrilled bartender starts handing out shots of Jägermeister, and we hear Post say, "We've worked hard to get these moments back. Here's to keeping them forever."

The film, which is soundtracked to Post's song "I'm Gonna Be," ends with the slogan, "Let's bring life back to nightlife. Stay safe."

“We wanted to help raise awareness and send support to the whole nightlife community & anyone who’s been affected during these tough times,” says Post in a statement. “All the artists, the creatives, the staff -- this is for you.”

Starting in September, Jägermeister is releasing limited edition #SAVETHENIGHT bottles, with a portion of the proceeds going to the National Independent Venue Association, which supports those clubs and theaters who've struggled during the pandemic. In October, Jägermeister will sponsor Post Malone's Posty Fest in Arlington, Texas.

Up next, the artist will be sharing his own nightlife story, and doing an exclusive virtual meet and greet on Jägermeister's #SAVETHENIGHT platform.
