Adam Lambert isn’t sorry

Adama Lambert’s performance at the AMAs yesterday which saw Lambert simulate fellatio with a male dancer, drag a woman across the ground, make out with a male keyboardist and grab his crotch and flip off the crowd left a  bitter taste in the mouths of a few. These few, of course, have a lot of free time on their hands because they lodged complaints. “Think of the children,” they probably shouted at operators who didn’t have the heart to tell them they called the wrong number.

Lambert, however, isn’t apologizing. In fact, he’s a little outraged they edited his performance on the west coast feed. He told Access Hollywood,

“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.”

He also said he considered editing his performance “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.

Added Lambert, “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.”

I’m mad too. Not by what he did, but by people wasting their time complaining about this. His performance must have been so offensive that it left them in a catatonic state because they couldn’t make it to the remote to turn it off. Jesus, it’s like someone forced them to watch a snuff film.

If he is not sorry, he should be. Not only was it skabky and would have been if it had been straight; it was the worst vocal performance ever heard from him. What the hell was he thinking? Oh and please don’t hide behide the “gay double standard” thing. Offensive is offensive, regardless of how it is presented. The guy has the most amazing voice. He could stand there, sing his heart out like he did on Idol, and bring the whole audience to its feet. That he chose to use this golden opportunity to present himself in this way… Read more »

If by chance Adam Lambert is reading this, I want to ask him just one question.

Are you truly happy for what you did?

Cuz the way I see it, this is just a way to make yourself more controversial and in showbiz bad publicity is still publicity.

Well I hope you are happy with that.
