Britney Spears' "Amy" Search Makes Parents Mad

Britney Spears'

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?

At least she knows one person who might appreciate it.

What do you think? Is the song a funny play on words or is it offensive? Leave it in comments.

    Okay, this is the song that has everyone up in arms? I don't get censors. They can barely bleep out parts of swear words on the radio till you can still tell what they're saying, but now all of a sudden Britney's going to corrupt today's youth? Sheesh. If parents aren't up in arms over Britney's other endeavors, they shouldn't be over this. Anyone who's seen at least one of her music videos shouldn't be surprised.

    I don't get it either and besides, I think this is an effort derail Britney. I would say her mother is behind this. The woman has first exploited her as a child and now sabotages her as a woman. I don't understand that kind of woman. Why? Britney, despite her mother, has survived and continues to do well. I hope she separates herself from this toxic mother soon. I am genuinely concerned. ryawyn

    Actually, Britney ripped off this gimmick from the 1982 April Wine classic "If You See Kay."
