A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this music.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that "Till the World Ends" is a lot less risque than many of the songs that Britney Spears has previously released. While it includes some fairly steamy lyrics about sex, her metaphors are still less direct than in previous singles, making this tune OK for teens.

What's the story?
TILL THE WORLD ENDS is the second single from Femme Fatale, the seventh album from pop icon Britney Spears. As with the record's first single, "Hold It Against Me," this song is clean compared to earlier Spears hits like "3." The track contains no graphic language or particularly direct references to sex, although the lyrics can get steamy at times. For example: "You notice what I'm wearing, I notice when you're staring." Still, overall it's an OK choice for teens.
Is it any good?
Spears was never the strongest singer, and her so-so vocals in this song prove the point. Lots of Auto-Tune still can't cover up her mediocre performance, though the song's dance beat is catchy enough to appeal to die-hard Spears fans who've been dying for a new track from the pop star.
