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."

I too have been growing more annoyed with this website. Why oh why are you defending that junk?? The AMA's have a more public, not to mention family, platform than the MTV movie awards.

I was really looking forward to Adam's performance. I love his voice and I love his artistry. This performance was too raunchy though. There's ways to make suggestive moves without pushing someone's head into your private parts. Art leaves something up to the imagination.

I was so excited to finally get a chance to see Adam perform. I loved him on AI-however my mouth was agape and I had a sickening "I'm embarassed for him" feeling that left me almost sleepless last nite. I am stunned into a position of how dare he or anyone (I am equally disgusted when girl on girl is shoved in my face) This is why I listen to country music... And its starting to get racy. Listen - no one wants sex shoved in their faces unexpectedly nor do they love to have someone push a bible in their face. I hate this societal tolerance that devalues morals and common decency - this performance was very disheartening. Sad sad sad

I think it was funny as hell. Everyone is whining and crying, you see more nasty shit on cartoons anymore. Who cares what he did on stage, Madonna has done worse walking down the street. No one screamed when she kissed Brittney, tongue and all. Hes a gay man....and. Get over yourselves. Have you seen the videos out there..what about Soldier Boy's song about raping someone. No one censors him. Go on Adam, loved you on AI love ya now. To hell with all of these people who sit on a pedastool. By the way, two guys kissing is no more disgusting than two girls kissing, yet some call that shit art!

Guys, go to the toilet before you go onstage. Grabbing your crotch isn't sexy. It looks like you're trying not to pee your pants.

More people then you think are gay, but what pushed it over the edge was the leashes and oral suggestions...I personally don't want to see that, gay or straight, and I also don't think his singing is that great...

he's being a bit of a hypocrit. he cant tell society one week to look past his sexuality and the next week make-out with a dude or have a half naked guy on a leash on stage during a performance. if he wants america to focus on his talent then he needs to do the same thing, but if he is going to make a habit out of doing shows purely for shock value, then he needs to realize no one will be paying attention to his voice, people will only see the man who's face his pushing in his crotch. he should get over himself, he's no elton john.
