A song from pop star Britney Spears' new album Circus has upset parents in Australia as they feel it encourages children to use vulgar language.
According to contactmusic.com, the song If You Seek Amy seems harmless on the surface, but some mothers were angry when they heard their children singing the lines. They claim the lyrics spell out F*** me and that Spears is courting controversy.
Leonie Barsenbach, a concerned mother, said: "I was astonished and totally taken aback when I heard my five and seven-year-old kids walking around the house singing F***. 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...
"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."
