In 2009, Britney Spears released one of her most popular — and controversial — songs to date. “If U Seek Amy” was a tongue-in-cheek song and its titular lyrics were meant to spell out something much more profane, evoking the ire of many critics. Nonetheless, the song proved to be incredibly popular, and played nonstop on radio stations across the U.S.
This famously caused conservative commentator Megyn Kelly, who then worked on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” to run a segment on the song, in which she slowly enunciated the lyrics, then followed up by saying, “Doesn’t make any sense, does it? It’s not supposed to … that song is on the air right now, that is on the radio, it will be playing while you drive your children to school!”
About a month later, Spears released the “If U Seek Amy” music video, in which she hit back at Kelly. “If … You … Seek … Amy,” the actor playing Kelly (Kristina Mitchell, per IMDb) sounded out at the beginning of the music video in a clear reference to the Fox News commentator. After the music video ends, the video cuts back to “Kelly” and closes with her saying, “Doesn’t make any sense, does it?” The banner below the commentator also read out almost verbatim exactly what the real Kelly’s did: “Britney Spears Song Lyrics Spell Out Obscenity In Disguise.”
