Britney Spears suddenly capable of word play

January 26th, 2009 // 87 Comments

Ever since Britney Spears announced her new single would be “If U Seek Amy,” radio stations have panicked because of the title’s double entendre that I spent way too much time I’ll never get back trying to figure out. NY Daily News reports:

As for “Amy,” it’s hardly an accident that if you say the title fast – and enunciate it a little more clearly than Spears does – you get a crude sexual phrase.
Happily for Jive Records and Brit, the Parents Television Council (PTC) decided to hyperventilate anyway, creating a tidal wave of free promotion.
That’s one reason why, in case you hadn’t noticed, Jive was in no hurry to provide a “clean” edit for radio play.
As for Z100, America’s defining top-40 station, the clean edit is essential. The PTC may be windbags, but since Z100′s parent Clear Channel just fired 9% of its work force, it doesn’t need to spend money defending itself at the FCC. Also, Clear Channel CEO John Hogan promised Congress a couple of years ago that the company would have a “zero tolerance” policy on indecency.

Before everyone pats Britney on the back for her producers having a grasp of the English language, she originally wanted to name the track “Taco Bell Wrapper on My Face” because “just think of the video, y’all. Just think of the video.”

Other track titles included “Hey, Are Cactus Edible? Ouch!”; “Jayden James is like a Prince I Don’t Want to Accidentally Leave at the Gas Station”; and “My Burgina is Too an Instrument!”

    “if you seek amy” phonetically said is “F U C K Me”
    the songs chorus says
    “Love me, hate me.
    Say what you want about me.
    But all of the boys and all of the girls.
    Are begging too, If you seek amy.”

  11. LawnGnome

    If you see gay me???

  12. wtf

    as noted above by #2, it sounds like “eff u see kay me” (aka fuck me) when you say it really fast.

  13. If one of her ass cheeks is an entendre, I’ll take a double.

  14. Maria

    BRITNEY SHOULD GO TO HELL AND STAY THERE>>>>>>BYE BITCH!

  15. Wow she’s gaining weight again. Keep on dancing!!!

    DOES JESUS KNOW ABOUT THIS??

  17. p0nk

    i’m sure the 12-13yo market she targets will find this devilishly clever.

  18. pete

    At least at the moment, she’s not nearly as fat as Jessica Blimpson.

  19. p0nk

    @6 rachel, how else do you hide lipo scars and still attempt to dress scantily?

  20. Lisa

    Oh..well duh. LOL! I can’t believe I missed that one. This song won’t be played at any middle school dances!!

  21. Sandy

    I prefer the third track, “Fay Sing Yee East.”

  22. drewski2u

    “If You Sick Of Me?”

    And how!

    BTW, good one #14

    HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT

    but know what? wanna try and date real hot cougars, MILFS, sexy chicks? you may wanna check this out +++___ Agelessmate. c om__ +++ Man, you don’t believe what you might get there!!LOL

  24. I find it hard to believe that B-Spears would be this clever. (Or that she writes her own songs.)

  25. slammy

    I’m glad someone explained the double entendre up there. I thought it was supposed to be “if you see gay me”

  26. She also seems to be very capable of vagina play as well.

  27. Guest

    The lyrics are:

    “all of the boys and all of the girls
    are dying to if u seek amy”

    It took me forEVER to figure that out
    it doesn’t really matter, because the
    song is catchy so everybody
    just shut up!!!

  28. Lost

    Uhh…I’m still not sure what I am suppose to do if I see a gay me?

  29. Is this the best Britney can do? The shock value bar is set so high for her, this doesn’t even register *YAWN*

  30. LL

    I haven’t noticed a “tidal wave of publicity,” but then again, I’m not 12 or an adult with the musical preferences of a 12-year-old, so that might explain that.

    Also, I refuse to believe Britney is responsible for any “wordplay.” She’s barely capable of “words.” Whoever wrote that, they shouldn’t be bragging about it. Finding “clever” ways to say/write “fuck” goes back a pretty long way.

  31. Fletch

    I’d still do her

  32. Maria

    Ill…Fletch ” Still do Her”….YUCK, YOU WILL CATCH AIDS FROM THAT BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Maria

    Ill…Fletch ” Still do Her”….YUCK, YOU WILL CATCH AIDS FROM THAT BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. Maria

    Ill…Fletch ” Still do Her”….YUCK, YOU WILL CATCH AIDS FROM THAT BITCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. Fletch

    I didn’t say I wouldn’t double wrap it

  36. Jrz

    If U Seek Amy…….If U Seek Amy……
    Oh, I get it…..
    *scrunches eyebrows at RichPort’s Ghost*

  37. Andrea

    lol@22 “Fay Sing Yee East” = Facing Yeast, sick, hahaha. Maybe Adnan wrote that one.

  38. gestulation

    damn she looks good
    if you seek amy is a good song too

  39. Splooge

    COMING SOON!!
    A hilarious video about a guy who posted links to “hilarious VIDEO about DUDE THAT GOT TRAMPLED AT WAL-MART:”.
    The family of that dude figured out who it was and beat the living shit out of him while onlookers applauded!!

  40. joanna

    WOOOOW, that is really old news

  41. She could have named the song Fah Q.

  42. Vince

    I thought “scrunches eyebrows” was a trick that Armenian strippers did.

  43. meee

    dude fish you are really slacking.

    it’s either “are cacti edible” or “is a cactus edible”. god i’m starting to hate you!

  44. She’s nasty…I’d never do a chick whose tits are perpetually staring at my shoes.

    My question is why does she even wear the headset when she lip-syncs everything?

    Great video here of Britney singing “Live” :

  45. FAIL

    @44, the Grammar Nazi:

    It’s a joke written in the vernacular of Britney Spears. How did your superior intellect miss that? Oh, right, you’re a shriveled up bitch with a dusty burgina. Got it.

  46. Jrz

    Mother May I C-U-P

  47. Lee Marie

    What the hell is up with the high waisted underpants?

    And that is possibly the lamest double entendre.

  48. NEVER BACK DOWN MAN

    IF = F
    U = U
    See = C
    k A = K
    my = ME

    FUCK ME

  49. Meeting in Kansas...LOL

    I love that song!! Go Britney.
