The track is from the “Toxic” singer’s CircusAlbum, which was released in 2008. Clarkson comments that she made around the time Spears appeared to have been veiled by Spears, which was released in 2008.

“‘I don’t forget’ … don’t you just wish she would say she’s kidding ??? Clarkson …” Spears wrote via Instagram. “In a world where bullying has been heartbreaking, I’ve had my share …. Can we get an AWW ✍️✍️✍️ ??? Psss … I’m not kidding … play on friends, play on !!!”

Fans were quick to assume that Spears was referring to a past radio interview in which Clarkson joked it would be “funny” if the “… Baby One More Time” songstress was pretending to be struggling with her mental health to promote her album.

“Man, but wouldn’t it be funny if she’s just totally screwing with everyone?” Clarkson said on Q100 radio. “Cause it’d be real funny if she were like, ‘just kidding!’ I mean, think about it. She’s done no press for her album, which I love by the way … She’s done no press, just gets so much press off all this other stuff.”
