If U Seek Amy

I had revived hope in Britney Spears’ pop value and her chosen production team after the “Circus” video, but now I see that I was mistaken. Nevermind that this song is a hot mess, including a very annunciated “ha ha he he ha ha ho” and ridiculous grammatic aberrations (“all of the boys and all of the girls can’t wait to if u seek Amy,” and yes, I get it that she’s spelling “FUCK ME,”) in the lyrics, it’s just a “conceptual disaster” all around, as Tom Colicchio would say. As a song, I deem it worse than Womanizer.

Check it.

Now I’m not a major consumer of Britney products, but seeing as she’s like this American symbol for pop and has major global visibility, I wish she would get a little more creative. How many more of these “dual personality/reality” videos is she going to make?! So far we have, “Toxic,” “Womanizer,” “If U Seek Amy,” “Lucky,” etc. I can imagine her in meetings being like, “Okay but what if I were like, two people?! Two different people, with like, different outfits and hair?!” I can only assume the people she’s working with to make these videos have never seen anything she’s ever done before.

C’mon Brit, you can do better.

    Jesus christ, I had to stop watching it for fear her breasts would pop out. Is it a wardrobe malfunction if it’s on purpose??

    Ugh, her voice is horrible. And that “ha ha hee ho” part? As Gob in Arrested Development would say, “COME ON!”
