Adam Lambert’s overly-sexual performance at the 2009 AMA (watch AMA video here) is still causing controversy in a lot of different ways. This time gay rights group GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) wants to crucify CBS’s Early Show for blurring out images of Adam’s AMA man-on-man kiss before showing a completely uncensored version of Madonna and Britney Spears’ lesbian VMAs kiss (watch video below).
The incident just proved Adam’s point when he said, “…if it had been a female pop performer doing the moves that were on the stage, I don’t think there would be nearly as much of an outrage.”
CBS tried to explain it the unexplainable, saying, “The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning TV.” By contrast, CBS explained, “The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences.”
That is one very bad explanation which, unfortunately, diverted attention from the real problem about Adam’s AMA performance: it wasn’t about the gay kiss but about a sexually explicit and very poor performance (read review of Adam Lambert’s AMA performance and video).
