YouTube - Adam Lambert For Your Entertainment at the American Music Awards 2009
He's crying foul... double standard, discrimination, yadda yadda....

If him kissing his bandmate and the crotch grabbing were all that happened I would agree with him, as others have done the same in the past. However, the simulated oral sex was totally over the top in my opinion. This isn't the MTV music awards or HBO we are talking about. This is ABC and the AMA's.

I understand people wanting to add shock value to further their career, but there are much better ways to do that. Lady Gaga for example, she pushes the envelope, but I haven't seen her do anything, as of yet, that I feel is crossing the line.

What do you think? Was it out of line?

I agree with him, double standard all the way. We have Miley Cyrus pole dancing at the Teen choice Awards, we have variuos female artists doing suggestive things on stage, we have Rihanna wearing a bondage suit that you can pratically see her freaking crotch. While the oral sex reenactment was not needed I think people are overreacting because he is homosexual and the shock of it . We never overreact when all the females are grinding on some guys penis (stimulating sex). All this being said, the performance was horrible lol.

I'm too lazy to google right now, but I can do it later if you don't want to answer.. but what is he crying foul against? Who is saying what about his performance?

Even though I don't know who is saying things, I can imagine what they are saying. I agree the "simulation" was a bit over the top for ABC.

I just wanted to say that I love your avi and quote! The marshmallow comment was classic. My DH even laughed.

Not only do I think it was over the top, but I think he has alienated many of his fans. Just think of the parents who watched this with their children who were AL fans. I can imagine that little Suzie won't be attending any concerts anytime soon (until she's 35).
He's completely strayed from the people that got him here. The people that are fanatical voters for American Idol are not the kind of people that would have enjoyed that performance.

I agree with what your saying. If he was going to do something like this at least do it on MTV awards or something not the AMA's.

They kept cutting away whenever he was doing anything interesting! I can kind of see where he's coming from with the double standard complaint. My guilty pleasure is So You Think You Can Dance, and sex is simulated all the time on that show. Find any of Travis Wall's contemporary routines on YouTube. As far as I know, no one complains.

I watched it and I have seen worse.

It felt like he was trying too hard. Like he had let American Idol squash who he really was and now this was his chance to let it all out at once!

I might be the only one that felt that way though.

Oh yeah, cause the faux naked Lady Gaga is perfectly fine to air on ABC (check out this outfit as she plays at the flaming piano The Monster Ball starring Lady GaGa and the actual video of her performance YouTube - Lady Gaga AMA Performance 2009 "Bad Romance" & "Speechless" ) but Adam Lambert is just SCANDALOUS!

Seriously, I've seen worse. Way worse. His performance wasn't that bad. Actually I found his vocals more irritating than any of the "offensive" acts...

Oh yeah I know, the white outfit with the cutouts. THAT was interesting! And where's all the complaints about her performance too? And Shakira was practically screwing the microphone during her performance. No complaints about that either? Oh wait, that's because they're all female so it's totally okay. Ugh.

Only complaint from me is the oral sex-- while many girls out there have acted like hookers and sluts, I think oral sex is pretty dadgum risque and crosses a pretty big line

Gay male kissing, beh no big deal. I'd have a problem with any gender imitating oral sex though on cable TV

Here is a link that works for the video for now, I'm sure it will be down soon

You KNOW I can derail all day with this convo!

Just an FYI here is a still shot of Lambert's crotch/man grab. It also has pics of his makeout session

I already didn't like Miley's performance which was also edited as she flung around on her stripper pole. But imagine if she'd hopped up on a piano and had a backup star performing oral sex? Sorry Lambert, don't see that as discrimination. It's just gross and not cause you're gay

Other than the maybe 15 seconds of simulated oral sex, it really wasn't all that racy. Just lots of writhing, which is pretty standard. Tempest, meet teapot.

Can I just say that I am so glad to see the pop stars of today at least trying again. I feel like it's the glory days of Madonna and Prince again! Remember Prince at the VMAs in 1991? Remember my father lunging for the remote while muttering "Why did your mother put MTv on at 10 at night?"

Ah, memories.

I agree with you totally. And, every news network I saw reporting on this was pretty much on the same page. It was all about the oral sex.
Also, Jane Velez Mitchell did have a panel last night about Rhianna and not Adam Lambert. And FWIW, I found Rhianna's performance totally innapropriate as well. The whole gun thing was in very bad taste, whatever her intention.

rihannna is becoming more and more sadistic every song lol. I used to like her, the whole gun thing and the rolling around on the table naked in the beginning, very strange. The whole performance was strange lol.
