Outraged Moms And Dads Figure Out The Meaning Behind Those Incomprehensible Britney Spears Lyrics


“I was astonished and totally taken aback when I heard my 5 and 7 year old kids walking around the house singing F U C K’… When I asked them what it was, they told me it was Britney Spears. I was horrified.”—A sorta-concerned parent to Australia’s Undercover News, regarding the at-first-blush gibberish lyrics of “If You Seek Amy” on Brit Brit’s Circus. Yes, that Britney Spears, she’s been such a paragon of demureness and chastity that her singing about people wanting to do her is just, well, shocking. Right? Up next: Shocked mothers get their knickers in a twist over the skankiness quotient of Bratz dolls, just in time for them to be forcibly taken off the market! [undercover.com.au / YouTube]

    I might have bought this prior to “I’m a Slave 4 U”, but come on, parents, you’ve been on notice for the better art of a decade that she’s no longer kids’ stuff.

    @Audif Jackson Winters III: nor is she that in-na-CEEENNNNT, right?

    oh no, music is pissing off parents. what is this world coming to.

    If I were parents, I’d be more concerned that my children were learning grammar from Swedes who thought “All of the boys and all of the girls are begging to if you seek Amy” contained more than the single entendre.

    But what do we expect, when Larry Rudolph and Jive put out an album cover that could be any Barbie soundtrack?

  • ObtuseIntolerant

    @CapnCalamity: Hehe. And the Bratz parallel…so apt.

  • MameDennis

    Can’t wait for the edgy follow up, “ICUP”…

  • Maura Johnston

    @MameDennis: haha i thought you were making a ’2 girls, 1 cup’ joke. ah, intertextuality!

  • Audif Jackson Winters III

    @MameDennis: Or third single “Hey Kids, Type 55E19009 Into Your Calcultor And See What It Says … Come On, Do It!”.

  • Audif Jackson Winters III

    @Audif Jackson Winters III: Well, there should have been a “turn it upside down” instruction in there.

    Britney is teaching dirty double entendres to the tweens? What a cunning linguist! Mark my words: we haven’t heard the last of this, or my name isn’t Heywood Jablome.

    The real horror is that children are being allowed to such a god-awful song, who cares about entendre.
