29. If U Seek Amy (2009)
The video starts with a prim news anchor carefully saying the song title, while an on-screen graphic shouts “BRITNEY SPEARS SONG LYRICS SPELL OUT OBSCENITY IN DISGUISE. She might be feigning ignorance, but you know what it means, right?
It’s the morning after what appears to have been a night of extreme debauchery. Britney’s freaky friends are pulling on their clothes, or still passed out in bed from the night before. Britney awakes and something’s on her mind - where is Amy?
Britney has a dance with some boys, then has a dance with some girls as the boys watch with lust in their eyes. This is a very bisexual song. Suddenly party girl Britney transforms into a perfect 1950s housewife, albeit one with dirty dark roots. Oh, symbolism!
Housewife Britney makes her way through the house, surrounded by her freaky friends, goes into the kitchen and picks up an apple pie. Taking it outside, she’s joined by a handsome husband and two cute kids, and they pose at their front gate for a swarm of paparazzi.
Another clip of the news anchor closes the video, saying, “It doesn’t make any sense, does it?”
The video seems like Britney’s response to people who are angry that she isn’t still a sweet 17-year-old. Hey guys, sometimes she’s a bit freaky. We all like to get up to our own business at home.
