Adam Lambert Isn't Going To Apologize For His Racy Performance

Adam Lambert Isn't Going To Apologize For His Racy Performance-photo

Adam Lambert really toned things down last night at the American Music Awards, don't you think?

If you missed his performance, you NEED to see this:

Of course, this was all edited for the west coast feed of the AMAs. And he's not going to apologize for anything.

After the show and the on-stage makeout sesh, 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 thinks editing his performance was "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.

"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."

What do you guys think? Was his performance pushing it?

    To one comment, I dont know what floor you are standing on, but there is no sinking to the level of any of the top performers who have been controversial. Look at Madonna..She is the queen of pop. Where exactly would he be sinking to? Oh thats right, right into the history books. Why do people have to be so judgemental. He is still the same Adam Lambert we all fell in love with. I loved his performance. You are FINE just the way u are Adam. Your dancers, fashion, accessories and more importantly you...HOT Did I say I liked Madonna's performances? No.

    I am so sad and deeply disappointed that Adam disrespected his fans in this way. I still can't get the ugliness out of my mind. Adam, everyone poops.... that doesn't mean we want to see it being done on tv. What were you thinking? I'm embarrassed to have been a fan. You've made a mockery of us!

    Um, no, no female performers have done this on award shows, not even Madonna, so cut the crap. Adam should I have only performed that at his OWN concert. Fail. Madonna making out with Britney and Christina, remember? Madonna humping the stage on MTV to "Like A Virgin. 16 y/o Miley humping a stripper pole. Lady Gaga and her bloodfest performance? Definitely a double standard. Two chicks can makeout, right? But two guys, forget it...???

    I am a 47 yr old female. I found the performance a bit lame and the song even lamer. Come on Adam, you are a better singer than this. The "show" was juvenile and came across as something choreographed by a group of 14 yr. old kids thriving for shock value. Sorry, didn't work. At best, his voice sounded mediocre. I certainly wasn't offended. Disappointed yes, offended, not even close...

    People, he's right that women do this kind of stuff all the time on these type of awards shows and videos. It is double standard....Bravo for Adam! He loves to shock us and make us go OMG. I love that he is way out there.

    I loved him on American Idol, and even stood up for him when others at my school said rude things about him...but now I'm starting to regret it. He has so much talent and the fact that he chooses to showcase it in such a tasteless way is disappointing. Yes, female performers have done things just as bad. But why sink to their level? You can do better, Adam.
