Britney Spears Plays Sexy '50s Housewife In 'If U Seek Amy' Video

Source says clip is 'very provocative.'

She's been a sexy waitress, a hot stewardess and, let's not forget, a provocative schoolgirl. Now, in her latest video — for "If U Seek Amy," the third single from her Circus LP — [artist id="501686"]Britney Spears[/artist] is assuming a new sexpot persona, that of a sexy 1950s housewife.

Decked out in a blond wig, tight pink top and white skirt, [news id="1604808"]Spears reportedly spent Tuesday shooting the clip in Pacific Palisades[/news], California, near Malibu.

"The video begins with Britney coming outside her house to hand the paparazzi an apple pie that she baked," a source told People magazine. "She acts like she wants to hook up. The video is very provocative."

The clip also features two "perfectly groomed" kids and a husband character, described by sources as strait-laced. It also has dancers "dressed in skimpy outfits in metallic colors," and Spears reportedly sports some glitzy, skimpy outfits of her own. "She was like the old Britney at the shoot," a source told People. "She was engaged and excited the whole day and seemed like her old self."

For videos for previous singles from Circus, Spears worked with directors Joseph Kahn, on [news id="1597273"]"Womanizer,"[/news] and Francis Lawrence, on [news id="1599838"]"Circus."[/news] She had already worked with both directors in the past. No word yet on who she's hooked up with to helm the "Amy" clip.

"Any director could come on," Kahn told MTV News of working with the singer, "because with that fierceness and determination she has, they would look like they knew what they were doing."
