In December, fans chose the controversial track as the song she should chose for her next single in a poll on the site, with “Amy” winning 26 percent of the vote.
Many parents are up in arms over the song’s chorus, “All of the girls and all of the boys are looking to… If you seek Amy,” which could be heard as “F*** me.”
“I was astonished and totally taken aback when I heard my 5 and 7-year-old kids walking around the house singing ‘F-U---K,” one parent has complained, according to Rolling Stone. “When I asked them what it was, they told me it was Britney Spears. I was horrified.”
The first two singles from “Circus” were “Womanizer,” which topped the charts, and the album’s title track.
Brit took a break over the holidays from promoting the album to celebrate the wedding of her brother, Bryan, who was married on New Year’s Eve in New Orleans.
