Britney Spears: "F.U.C.K. Me"

A new video for Britney Spears' controversial "If You Seek Amy" just premiered. Unsurprisingly, the PTC does not approve of the song.

The video for Britney Spears’ controversial single "If You Seek Amy" just premiered. If you’re interested in why the PTC freaked out when the song was originally released, say the title really fast (preferably loudly, with your easily-scandalized grandmother or pastor in the room.)

The clever disguise, however, did not fool the discerning culture warriors at the Parents Television Council.

Said the eagle-eyed Tim Winter, President of PTC:

"This may sound Yogi Berra-ish, but Britney’s song is a double-entendre with only one meaning.  There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song; and it’s certainly not about a girl named Amy."

There doesn’t appear to be a girl named Amy in the video either, which adds credence to Winter's astute observation. Instead, the video features some very attractive, very thin people assembling their clothes post-orgy and some standard (and awesome) Britney-gyrating/hair-flinging/boob-spilling. Really, the PTC should reconsider their stance: where else will kids learn such useful lessons about orgy etiquette, or the polite way to ask strangers to have one night stands with you? Oh yeah, probably their junior high school cafeteria.
