This is Britney Spears appearing as a pie-baking 1950s housewife with a perfect family in her controversial new video, If You Seek Amy.

The star is clad in a blonde bouffant wig, pink blouse and short white skirt in the feature, the third song to be taken from her latest album Circus.

She is seen with a handsome, preppy man and two well-dressed children in a home with a white picket fence.

Last month, the singer wrote on her Twitter blog: 'Yesterday's If You Seek Amy shoot was super sexy and really fun! I can't wait for you all to see it.'

But the track has already provoked outrage because when Spears sings the title of the song out loud it is akin to spelling out the F-word in letters.

An American pro-censorship group, the Parents Television Council, has already called for the song to be banned from the airwaves.

President Tim Winter says playing the song between 6am and 10 pm would 'violate the broadcast indecency law'.

He said: 'There is no misinterpreting the lyrics, and it's certainly not about a girl named Amy.'

With some radio stations in the U.S. threatening to ditch the song, the singer announced last month that the title would be changed to 'If You See Amy' and amended the offensive sections of the track.

There were two parts of the song caused outrage. One was: 'All the boys and girls are begging to If You Seek Amy.'

The other was its chorus: 'Oh baby, baby, if you seek Amy tonight/Oh baby, baby, we'll do whatever you like.'

Her decision to make the alterations means the lyrics no longer make sense but the new version is set to be released in the UK in May.

The track was also attacked in Australia. A Sydney housewife, Leonie Barsenbach, described her outrage saying: 'I was astonished when I heard my five and seven-year-old kids singing "f**k me".'

'I was horrified. I got them the Circus album but there was no warning on it... It is extremely offensive. I feel deceived.'

The video sees Britney coming outside her house to hand the paparazzi an apple pie she's baked.

One girl in the video, who appears to be playing her child, is dressed in a grey school uniform which echoes the singer's provocative schoolgirl uniform from the video of her 1999 debut hit song Baby One More Time.

She also appears to have borrowed a little style from an old Pepsi Commercial where she appears dressed in series of outfits, including a '50s ensemble. Mail Online reported.
