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

By: Betsy Waldman / November 23, 2009

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?
