Britney Spears will have to re-record her next single ‘If You Seek Amy‘ to stop it being banned from broadcasting.
After the release of this track, the song’s chorus has caused a number of problems for the famous singer, due to the controversial lyrics sounding as though Britney Spears is actually singing “All of the boys and all of the girls are beggin’ to F.*.*.K me,” rather than “All of the boys and all of the girls are beggin’ to, if you seek Amy.”
Therefore, many US radio stations have threatened to stop airplaying the song, motivating that kids might listen the song when their mothers are not around to switch the frequency. So, according to The Sun newspaper, this restriction has now forced Britney to re-record the track, changing the word “seek” to “see” and being renamed as ‘If You See Amy’. The track is the third single from Spears’ ‘Circus’ album, an album that became successful since its very release and made Britney return to her glorious days.
One radio station that is debating whether to air the song is Cincinnati’s Q102, whose program director Patti Marshall told MTV: “It’s OK to put in on an album, have fun with it, but we’re publicly owned, you know?”
“We have a responsibility to the public… you put this… out and act like we’re all fuddy-duddies, like we’re trying to make moral judgments. It’s not about us. It’s about the mom in the minivan with her 8-year-old.” Marshall added.
However, the problem is as solved since the pop star decided to make the necessary changes for her troubled song.
