Britney Spears’ “Amy” Search Makes Parents Mad
Britney Spears’ new single “If U Seek Amy” is causing concerns for the Parents TV Council.
Why? Well, say the title out loud. Four times in a row. Quickly.
The council says that the song would “violate the broadcast indecency law” if it is played between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on radio and television. The watchdog organization is urging a boycott of the song.
“There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it’s certainly not about a girl named Amy,” PTC president Tim Winter says.
“It’s one thing for a song with these lyrics to be included on a CD so that fans who wish to hear it can do so, but it’s an entirely different matter when this song is played over the public air waves, especially at a time when children are likely to be in the listening audience,” he continued.
The song, already #92 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, is off Britney’s best-selling Circus album.
Six top 40 stations across the country already have the song in rotation, according to Billboard. The tune has also reportedly sold 107,000 digital copies so far.
Will Britney, 27, put young fans in danger by performing the song on her world tour?
