Would "Blur" Be Canceled In This Current Climate?

Listening to Britney's "Circus" track, "Blur" talks about her getting so wasted she doesn't even know if she had s/ex with a random man- she doesn't know his name, where she is at, and if she had s/ex with him. If she couldn't remember all of that, she was probably too wasted to consent. With the current accountability climate we live in, if this song was released as a single now, do you think it would be problematic, or the GP would just think it was crazy drunken night?

Lyrics:

Turn the lights out
This **** is way too ******* bright
Wanna poke my eyes out
If you wanna mess with my eyesight
Just let me get my head right
Where the hell am I?
Who are you?
What'd we do
Last night?
Hey yeah yeah
Who are you?
What'd we do
Last night?
Hey yeah yeah
Can't remember what I did last night
Maybe I shouldn't have given in
But I just couldn't fight
Hope I didn't but I think I might've
Everything, everything is still a blur
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur (did last night)
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur
What's your name, man?
Can you calmly hand me all my things?
I think I need an aspirin
Better yet, I need to get up outta here
I gotta get my head right
Where the hell am I?
Who are you?
What'd we do
Last night?
Yeah yeah yeah
Can't remember what I did last night
Maybe I shouldn't have given in
But I just couldn't fight
Hope I didn't but I think I might've
Everything, everything is still a blur
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur (did last night)
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur
What happened last night?
'Cause I don't, 'cause I don't remember
What happened?
Can't remember what I did last night
Maybe I shouldn't have given in
But I just couldn't fight
Hope I didn't but I think I might've
Everything, everything is still a blur
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur (did last night)
Can't remember what I did last night
Everything, everything is still a blur

I don't think it'd get enough attention to be canceled. Also, yeah, technically, if it got attention, it'd probably be canceled by someone, but in reality, stuff like this still happens a lot, especially in college.

Even if it wasn’t about a consensual one night stand, no because she wasn’t the one that was doing the forcing. If anything, it’s a song about how females can get taken advantage of when drunk, so it’s raising awareness of non consensual s**.. the song wouldn’t get cancelled. 
 

it she was singing about how the guy didn’t remember his name ans she went to town on him- that’s a cause for cancellation and then it would be cancelled in today’s climate.

Idts

but Blur is one of my favorite Britney songs.  Her vocal is amazing.  I so wish an uncensored version existed...censoring the curse words was so stupid, because they add to the emotion of the song IMO.  Like, why even put them in there if they were going to silent them?  So aggravating how they censored the curse words on Blackout and Circus.  She very clearly wasn’t the 1999/2000 Britney that all the little kids were listening to.  Hopefully one day her work gets re-mastered (with her blessing) and they release unedited versions of Get Naked, Hot as Ice, and Blur.

I mean... there's a lot worse songs out there right now that are top of the charts that talk about killing, raping, unprotected s**, weak pullout games, fk'n random people, etc.

This song is so tame compared to those... it's still one of my favs.
