The Parents Television Council is warning parents about the Britney Spears song "If U Seek Amy" and urging radio stations not to broadcast it because the nonprofit organization believes it "would violate the broadcast indecency law" if aired between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Saying the title phrase quickly out loud produces a sound akin to spelling out the F-word, said PTC president Tim Winter. "There is no misinterpreting the lyrics to this song, and it's certainly not about a girl named Amy," he said of the track, the third single from Spears' new Jive album, "Circus."

"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 publicly-owned airwaves, especially at a time when children are likely to be in the listening audience," Winter says.

Haha, that's creative.

I think anyone involved in this debate needs to commit collective seppuke.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 5:13:45 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it shouldn't be banned.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 6:34:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
No.
I like that song
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 7:01:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
it should be banned, not because of the lyrical content, but because IT'S POP
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 7:28:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, it shouldn't be banned.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 7:53:50 PM EST (GMT-5)
i could care less about brittany spears
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 8:02:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
hmm kind of borderline-it does seem to be pretty much about f**king really
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 8:02:38 PM EST (GMT-5)
It took a while but I got the f-word spelling from the title. Once again I say really some people have way to much time on their hands. Get out enjoy life.
But whatever. Some people have nothing better to do.

I don't like her music. Can't stand bubble gum pop stuff. But it shouldn't be kept off the air.

If you don't care, then don't f-cking comment.

And no, it shouldn't be, because I hear the same sh-t with similar if not worse context than I've heard in this song. Everyone's just so consumed that it's a former teen idol singing it.

She's 27 years old, get over it already. She shouldn't be obliged to this role model BS because that hasn't been relevant for years anyway.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 8:42:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's pretty clever.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 8:48:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haaa, never saw that. She's awesome.

And no. No, not at all.

A lot of songs are about f*cking these days, most popular songs on the radio here talk about it in some way or another.

Exactly!

If you don't want your kids hearing songs about sex, I advise you just don't turn on the radio anymore.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 1/24/09 - 10:57:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
NO SONG SHOULD BE BANNED EVER!

The day I hear "Pop that pussy" on the morning radio, is the day I come to your house and violate you with a cactus.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 1:02:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
ALL of brittany's music is like that... you mean to tell me that they are just now noticing how much it corrupts children now??
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 1:44:33 AM EST (GMT-5)

13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 2:15:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
I actually like that song and it doesn't just come out and say all the boys and girls want to f*ck me. There's songs out there that actually do and they arent banned
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 9:01:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but only because it's terrible song.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 9:03:30 AM EST (GMT-5)
Britney Spears should be banned from radio play full stop.
13 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Sunday 1/25/09 - 10:17:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
All of her songs should be banned

I think you mean you couldn't care less

Get over yourselves, yanks. It's not like kids today aren't exposed to profanity in their daily lives anyway, they won't crap their pants (some might) if they hear the dreaded F-word on the air once in a while. I think it's kind of funny that there are people that actually refer to it like that.
I'm not very enlightened as to how things work over there, I could be dead wrong. Correct me if I am.
