Why The F-U-C-K Isn't Britney Spears' "If U Seek Amy" Her Next Single?

Gotta love how Britney Spears is down for recording any trash now. Take, for instance, her Max Martin jam "If U Seek Amy"—which leaked this weekend—off upcoming album Circus:

Love me, hate me
But all of the boys and all of the girls
Are beggin' to if you seek Amy

"If U Seek Amy." If you seek Amy? F-U-C....hey, wait a minute!

A couple observations about this trashtastic, insanely catch choon:
  1. It sounds like Pink's "So What" (also done by Martin). I wouldn't be surprised if she turned this down.
  2. It's got an old-school Euro-y Max Martin, extra-terrestrial-sounding middle eight, a la "Stronger" and "Oops!...I Did It Again."
  3. There's a probably-intentional running "Oh, baby, baby..." lyrical homage to "...Baby One More Time."
  4. "Ha-ha, Hee-hee, Ha-ha, Ho!" If "Oops!..." once referenced Titanic, is this a nod to The Dark Knight?
