Britney Spears vid for controversial "If U Seek Amy"

“Love me, hate me, but can’t you see what I see?
all the boys and all the girls are begging to F-U-C-K me”

The new one from Brit!

Lots of lingerie and bulging cleavage! When did Brit get the new boobs?

The greatest song this side of “Tangled up in Blue”!

NOT!! ….. Generic tat!

And a hilariously witty title! Who knew Oscar Wilde was still alive?

F .. U .. C .. K .. me! ….. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! ….. Shoot me please!!!

Allmusic said the song is:

… a Katy Perry-styled exercise in crass commercial carnality that is at once the best and worst song here. Best because Max Martin once again works his undeniable pop magic, turning this into a trashy stomper that feels inevitable and eternal, working against any sense of taste or decorum, something that the lyrics work overtime to undercut as they insist that all the boys and all the girls still want to F, U…well, spell it and you’ll get the picture, and if you don’t, Britney’s elocution will paint it for you. This sexy strut doesn’t work because Britney’s sexiness never was this explicit; she teased and hinted, at least in her music, and it feels wrong to have her be so nakedly vulgar here. Still, it was a necessary move, a way to stir up headlines and perhaps snatch the tabloid tiara from Katy’s head.

Entertainment Weekly called it “puerile” and that “it’ll be a middle-school sensation.”

Rolling Stone called the song “a saucy, swinging standout”.

The Guardian said “If U Seek Amy is a better pun than it is a song, but there’s a relish about her delivery of the chorus – “all the boys and all the girls are begging to F-U-C-K me” – that’s noticeably lacking elsewhere.”

USA Today said “If U Seek Amy mocks onlookers’ morbid fascination with the downward spiral of celebrities.”

The Independent gave the song a negative review, writing :”If You Seek Amy is crass: the entire song is simply an excuse for Spears to sing ‘All of the boys and all of the girls want to F-U-C-K me’, about as cheap as sensationalist outrage gets”.

In a Rolling Stone magazine interview, parents were quoted as saying, “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”. Rolling Stone defended Spears, arguing that parents should have been aware of the singer’s musical themes.

The Parents Television Council cautioned radio stations and cable music channels about broadcasting the music video for this song for the same reason.

Due to this reaction to the music, in the US, a radio edit has been released as “If U See Amy”. This edit takes out the ‘k’ in ‘seek’ and speeds up the chorus, therefore running thirteen seconds shorter than the original version. The “If U See Amy” version will only be released to US radio, with the music video and the international radio single being both “If U Seek Amy”.

“If U Seek Amy” is the third single released from Brit’s sixth studio album Circus.

The track was co-written and produced by Max Martin, who also wrote previous hits for Spears, including “…Baby One More Time” and “Oops!… I Did It Again”.

The music video (directed by Jake Nava) was originally planned to begin shooting on February 10, 2009, but instead began filming on February 7, 2009. The “If U Seek Amy” video also contains references to other Spears’ videos.

The music video premiered on March 12, 2009 on both Virgin Mobile (USA)’s official website and Spears’ official websites.

The video starts off with a news anchor saying the title of the song above a newsbanner that reads “Britney Spears song lyrics spell out obscenity in disguise”, a parody of a FOX News report by Megyn Kelly. It then skips to a house, in which a party is coming to an end. Spears gets up singing. After looking out the window, she dances with other party goers as the chorus starts. She is looking around for Amy while she is singing and begins to dance and joins the other party goers again as she sings the chorus once more.

All the guys watch her dancing until she stops and begins to dress into a conservative 50s-style outfit. As the chorus begins again, she comes out of her bedroom. She walks down the stairs where a woman gives her a potholder, which she uses to pick up a pie. She then takes the pie outside to be joined by her children and her husband. As they go down the walkway, they are surrounded by paparazzi who have no idea what truly goes on behind closed doors. While the kids and husband wave, Spears smiles for the camera and blows a kiss. The video then returns to the anchor, who says “it doesn’t make sense, does it?”.
