Can we please, finally move on from Adam Lambert's American Music Awards performance and focus on the great songs off the singer's new album?
A week after admitting he got carried away on stage and probably should have toned down his act, Lambert reiterated similar sentiments on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. He told the host and the audience:
"It was maybe a little too far... I look back on it and I go, 'OK, maybe that wasn't the best first impression to make again, the first second impression.' I mean, I had fun up there, I had a good time, my dancers had fun and the band had fun.
"I respect people and feel like people walked away from that feeling disrespected. I would never intend to disrespect anybody. So that was not my intention."
While making those admissions, Adam also stuck to his belief that there's a double standard at play for provocative males versus provocative females
We agree wholeheartedly, as did the talk show host and new American Idol judge. Said DeGeneres:
"My whole thing is I feel like if you're offended by a show of sexuality on stage, then you should be offended by all shows of sexuality. It should be all forms."
Following the taping, Lambert Tweeted to fans that he's gonna tone down his act, humbling himself once more in public and writing:
Goin in a new direction now. Focus back on the music... Don't worry friends: I'm still gonna be me. Always. W/o appologies. Just gonna experiment differently w how I present myself...I'm learning. :)
Let's just hope Adam doesn't get too conversavative now. His flamboyance and his pride in who he is has always been a huge part of the singer's appeal.
