"Gimme More" (CD single)
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Britney's first single off her upcoming CD is basically about being a stripper. She opens the song with the no-nonsense "It's Britney, bitch" and continues to bring the 'tude until the last note. While the rest of the lyrics could be a lot worse, they aren't that tame either ("cameras are flashin' while we're dirty dancing" and "feels like the crowd was sayin'/Gimme more, gimme more"). The music video reinforces the stripper theme with Britney decked out in fishnets and a leather cropped jacket, dancing around a pole.

What's the story?
\"It's Britney, bitch.\" That's how Britney Spears starts the first single from her recent CD, GIMME MORE, and that pretty much sets the tone for the entire song. The single is a huge hit -- on the radio, on iPods, and in dance clubs -- but kids might be disappointed with the repetitive, boring lyrics (how many times can she sing the chorus?) and the lagging beat.
Is it any good?
Parents might be disappointed by the fact this tween/teen sensation just can't keep it clean. She even goes as far as semi-simulating an orgasm while she sings, "I just can't control myself (more)/They want more? Well I'll give them more." Not sure if we want any more.
