No Apologies From Adam Lambert

by at . Comments

Hours after shocking the music world with his raunchy American Music Awards performance, Adam Lambert was anything but apologetic.

"You know honestly, if I offended some people... it's apples and oranges. I'm not an artist that does things for every single person," he told Access Hollywood. "I believe in artistic freedom and expression, I believe in honoring the lyrics of a song, and those lyrics aren't really for everybody, either."

New Jersey Performance

During his rendition of "For Your Entertainment," Adam kissed another guy, shoved a dude's face into his crotch and dragged a scantily-clad woman around by her leg. The first two acts were edited out when the show aired on the West Coast.

Lambert considers this an act of "discrimination."

"There's a big double standard, female pop artists have been doing things provocative like that for years, and the fact that I'm a male, and I'll be edited and discriminated against could be a problem," he explained.

The man makes a good point: when Britney Spears and Madonna kissed on stage at the 2003 Video Music Awards, the act was replayed for days on end. No affiliated dared to censor it.

But what do you think the reaction would be if Lambert made out with Kris Allen during a concert?

"People are scared and it's really sad, I just wish people could open their minds up and enjoy things, it's all for a laugh, it's really not that big of a deal," Lambert said of his sexuality and his provocative acts.

We agree. Did Adam really do anything on stage that Prince, Madonna, Britney or Lady Gaga haven't done before? The only difference: he's gay. America has to get over that. After all, as Lambert shouted many times last night:

He's only here "For Your Entertainment."

If you don't like something change the channel. Don't be lazy. Of course then you would have nothing to complain about. The was raunch and sex on the AMA's long before Adam got their. This is a rediculous double standard. It's okay for women to kiss but not men.

Hey I am a straight female, I am an Artist and would love to work with Adam. He was brilliant!. Unlike others who've done this for sheer publicity, I believe Adam did it because of his passion for his craft and I was truly entertained. Just as I accepted Brittney Spears, Michale Jackson, and Rihanna when they thought "outside the box" and delivered, I truly appreciate Adam and I believe we have the rebirth of the 80s era, when Price and George Michael shocked us, when Michael Jackson left us breathless. My hats off to Adam. Beautiful job. The lyrics became the performance. Stop being hypocrites America, you have allowed more SMUT on Daytime, Prime-time & Reality TV

Adam may not feel sorry for his performance any more than Janet Jackson and her "wardrobe malfunction" or Madonna and any of her TV concert appearances or Britany Spears and her TV appearances, but they ought to all be ashamed of their perverse presentations of overt sexuality - indeed pornographic bumping and grinding. I heard about Adam Lambert on the news, went online and saw the obscene performance and was absolutely stunned that ABC would allow an act that appeared to be "mock" oral sex on stage between Adam and another male dancer. God have mercy on America - if He can.

Hey! It's performance art at it's finest. Everything is seen as you want to see it, If a simulated sex act is vulgar in your head, thats your problem, It's subjective. After all the song is called "For Your Entertainment". Not everyone is going to be entertained. I'm not that entertained by Cirque Du Soleil, but most of the public is. Adam's a hot new artist. I have to agree with him, it is time to break down the barriers. If a woman can swivel her crotch and play with herself it's considered sexy. If a man flashes or suggests playtime with his member, it's considered vulgar. Lighten up everyone. Adam's a great performer and vocalist. It was definitely the show that woke everyone up. GO FOR IT ADAM

OK, Adam kissing the keyboardist isn't what caused so much of a stir, it was everything else, kids were watching this show for entertainers like Taylor Swift, Lambert should've respected the audience he was performing for. This would be more something for VH1 or MTV or something mostly adults and older teens watch. Out of line, Adam.
