Britney Spears Seeks to End "Amy" Controversy

Filed under: Celeb Parents, In The News, New In Pop Culture

"If U Seek Amy," Britney' Spears's new single, is about to be released. Catchy little tune -- and if you say the title fast enough, it sounds just like she's saying F--- me.

This, of course, could present a problem for radio stations that want to air the song but still have to abide by FCC guidelines. What to do?

Rather than be dropped by U.S. radio stations (ka-ching), Britney has decided to drop the "k" from "Seek." Now, the chorus goes: But all of the boys and all of the girls are beggin' to If You See Amy."

"It's a potential issue for every station," said John Ivey, program director for Los Angeles' KIIS-FM. "I'm certain that I would run it by my legal department first. My first job is to protect [the station's] license. ... It's better to be safe than sorry."

Britney, you are finally growing up and taking the youth of America as seriously as you take your own boys. Back in December we wrote about that Rolling Stone where she confided, "They're starting to learn words like 'stupid,' and Preston says the f-word now sometimes. He must get it from his daddy. I say it, but not around my kids."

As to whether or not I would let my kids listen to it, probably not. But only because I don't care for Britney's music. What's your take on all this?
