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."

Kate Hudson made quite an appearance last night at the American Music Awards, kissing New York Yankees star boyfriend Alex Rodriguez in full, public view.

On top of that, she flashed her chest in a sparkly Gianni Versace dress with a plunging neckline, suggesting that she may not have eaten since about 2007.

A-Rod Photo

Possible anorexic near-nipple slips aside, Kate Hudson and A-Rod palled around with friends, making sweet music backstage at the American Music Awards.

As Kate got cold, possibly due to malnourishment, Alex stepped up, a source said: "A-Rod gave Kate a big squeeze to keep her warm, and a sweet smooch."

She was "beaming, glowing actually." Consider our heart strings tugged at.

YIKES: Kate Hudson's dress at the American Music Awards left much to be desired, and yet little to the imagination. At least A-Rod was there to comfort her.

Hudson, along with Nicole Kidman, who both star in the upcoming Nine with Fergie, introduced the singer-actress's performance with the Black Eyed Peas.

A-Rod, who just won his first World Series title with the Yankees this month, introduced Jay-Z and Alicia Keys, who sang their hit, "Empire State Of Mind."

Hudson, in her barely-there silver dress, ignited giggles from the crowd, and at our headquarters, when she repeatedly adjusted her plunging neck line.

Eat a burger or two sometime, girl. Or some more tofu if that's what you're into. But yeesh, that's just not healthy. No matter what Kate Moss says.

Forget health care reform in Washington. Dr. Conrad Murray will see you now!

The personal physician who Janet Jackson and a lot of people at the LAPD believe killed Michael Jackson is officially back at work. Patients? Banging down the door.

We're kidding about that ... hopefully. But Dr. Conrad Murray has resumed his medical practice as of this morning, his lawyer confirmed to various media outlets.

Murray will be at the Armstrong Medical Clinic in Houston, Texas, which was searched by police on July 22. Michael Jackson died on Murray's watch June 25.

Dr. Murray Pic

Dr. Conrad Murray has been laying very low for months.

He's got a bigger motivation than clearing his name to get back to work. A judge told him he must pay $1,000 a month in child support or he goes to jail.

We don't see that AEG lawsuit panning out, either.

Whether Murray goes to jail depends on the outcome of the Jackson homicide invesigation and what charges, if any, he faces when the D.A. reviews it.

That's anyone's guess, but we don't imagine he'll get off scot free.

The ninth season of Dancing with the Stars is limping toward a finish line.

Months after the largest, most random field of contestants in show history was announced, the competition has been whittled down to three: Mya, Donny Osmond, and Kelly Osbourne.

The trio will perform a series of routines this evening and the winner will be announced tomorrow night. Let's take a look at each celebrity's odds of taking home the title:

Mya: 2-1. Easily the most talented, consistent performer of the season. Attractive, jovial, flexible. They should have canceled the series weeks ago and handed Mya the trophy.

Donny: 5-1. Way too cheesy for our taste. He also takes the competition far too seriously. Someone has to tell Mr. Osmond that DWTS is where celebs go once there's no shot at mainstream stardom any longer.

Kelly: 10-1. She has no business being here. Throughout the season, Joanna Krupa was more impressive and much better looking. Fans likely voted Kelly in because they felt about her dad being mentally unstable.

  • Donny on DWTS
  • Top Dancing Stars

Who do you think should win this season of Dancing with the Stars?

Guess THG birthday wishes weren't enough for Miley Cyrus.

The singer turns 17 today, but was feted last week with a surprise party thrown by mother Tish.

As reported by People, Miley was surrounded by friends, family and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth for the occasion, celebrating with a 1980s-themed bash at New York City's Canal Room.

"The whole thing was a surprise," said an insider, who detailed performances at the shindig by Broadway's Rock of Ages cast, along with a custom-designed cake created by Buddy Valastro, star of TLC's Cake Boss.

Very Dressed Up

Two years ago, Miley enjoyed another ‘80s-themed party in Nashville. Said her mom at the time:

"She loves the ‘80s. The fashion, the big hair– she thinks it's so funky."

That explains why Cyrus is appearing in the Sex and the City sequel. As previously reported, that movie will flash back to the 1980s for a couple scenes.

Talk about a big splash! An American model measuring 205 cm (she's about 6'9") is set to be featured on the cover of Australian magazine Zoo Weekly.

You think you've seen it all. The model, named Eve, appears on the cover of the magazine's current issue alongside a 162 cm-tall (5'3") Aussie model.

Kate Middleton: Pregnant Bride!

On Seinfeld, George Constanza dreamed of one day sleeping with a giant woman. But George was a short, bald fella. To him, tall meant about 5'11".

Eve is truly head and shoulders above the other models out there.

"No other magazine has put a woman who's nearly seven feel tall on the cover," editor Paul Merrill said, and he's probably correct in that assumption.

"We had ... her bikini specially made, but it was worth it."

Was it? Vote below!

Eve, the world's tallest model: Would you hit it?

Jon and Kate Gosselin's divorce is almost final after a contentious, but generally productive all-day mediation hearing Saturday at the arbitration table.

Jon did not contest that Kate should get primary custody of their eight kids. A decision on how all their assets are split up will be made within 30 days.

Dancing Fanatic

Jon and Kate actually agreed to the amounts certain items were worth, but were far apart on some issues relating to how assets should be distributed.

The two unresolved issues are distribution of assets and child support. In Pennsylvania, courts award "equitable" distribution when it comes to property.

That doesn't necessarily mean 50/50, however. Neither party, whose reality show, Jon and Kate Plus 8, officially ends tonight, asked for spousal support.

Jon and Kate in simpler, less contentious times.

The arbitration was supposed to last two days - Saturday and today - but it is believed that all major issues were handled and agreed upon Saturday.

Both Jon and Kate testified in the arbitration, the decision of which is binding on both of them and clears the way to ending their marriage for good.

It seems like both parties are ready to move on from their marriage, which consisted of Kate emasculating Jon on TV. But not without one last stunt.

In a nice gesture of PR peace, Jon brought flowers to give the impression he's not a total douche to the media to Kate as he arrived for the hearing.

Kate refused them.

"In what should have been their most serious moment as a couple," a source close to Kate told People, "Jon again resorted to a publicity stunt."

By now, most fans have heard all about Adam Lambert's controversial, sex-themed performance at the 2009 American Music Awards.

The singer grinded up against back-up dancers, pushed one's head down to his crotch and played tonsil hockey with a band member.

It was a shocking rendition of "For Your Entertainment," even for those of us accustomed to Lambert's flamboyant, over-the-top American Idol auditions. These photos explains why:

Simulated Sex
  • AMA Smooch
  • Controversial Performance
  • Shocking Lambert
  • Silver Suited

The performance was clearly meant to create buzz for the singer, whose debut album goes on sale today. As loyal Lambert followers, however, we wished he'd gone in the opposite direction.

For Adam, playing up his sexuality in such a showy manner is akin to Sarah Palin preaching about abstinence. Both strategies just play to each celebrity's base.

To Lambert's credit, he's always done his own thing. Last night's behavior was merely an extension to his American Idol acts, during the show's run this spring and its concerts this summer.

But if the singer's goal is to attract new fans and to move as many copies of his CD as possible, the performance was a failure. It went for shock value over vocal talent, the latter of which Lambert possesses in spades. He's not a gay Britney Spears. Adam can really sing.

Unfortunately, he wasted an opportunity to prove this to a new, national audience.

The talk today is all about Lambert's antics, not his voice. That's too bad because, as Adam himself said in an insightful interview last week, the man has a lot to offer America beyond his sexual preference and outlandish stage presence.

Do you agree with this critique? What did you think of Lambert's performance?
