Because ABC is so afraid of Adam Lambert, the network pre-taped his appearance on The View last week.
The singer jokingly referred to this fact when he sat down with Barbara Walters and company, warning viewers to shield their children from the TV sets.
When asked by the host if he's hurt by ABC's constant cancellations and censorship, Lambert replied:
"I'm surprised. I'm like, 'Really. Is it that big of a deal?'"
We couldn't agree more. If Elisabeth Hasselbeck can handle sitting next to this supposedly toxic influence, we're pretty sure everyone else can take a deep breath and relax. Check out his View interview below:
Lambert also appeared at Z100's Jingle Ball in NYC on Friday night. Click on the photos of him backstage at the event for larger images:
