Britney Spears Upset Aussie Parents With 'Naughty" Song 12/6/08
Parents in Australia are outraged with one of the songs on Britney
Spears' new album Circus - because it encourages their children to be
vulgar. The track If You Seek Amy seems harmless at first, but one
mothers group has publicly attacked Spears after hearing their kids
chanting the chorus line.
They claim the spelled-out lyric is similar to "F-*-*-K me" - and Spears
is deliberately trying to be controversial. Concerned mum Leonie
Barsenbach tells Aussie news website Undercover.com.au, "I was
astonished and totally taken aback when I heard my five and seven year
old kids walking around the house singing, 'F-*-*-K.
When I asked them what it was, they told me it was Britney Spears. I was
horrified. "I got them the Circus album because little kids are Britney
fans, but there was no warning on the album and none of the songs listed
had F-*-*-K in the title.
"Listening to it, it is extremely blatant and offensive. I feel I have
been deceived into believing that this was acceptable content for
children but instead it is objectionable." The album was released on
Tuesday (02Dec08) - the same day Spears celebrated her 27th birthday.
