Chris Brown Beats Out Adam Lambert for ‘Good Morning America’ Appearance

Hey, you know how Good Morning America canceled a scheduled performance by American Idol favorite Adam Lambert because they deemed his crotch-thrusting American Music Awards performance to be inappropriate?

Yeah, well it seems that they’ve found a much more suitable role model to grace their wholesome airwaves: “I Can Transform Ya” singer and convicted assailant Chris Brown.

The New York Post reports that GMA has booked Brown to tape an interview and bust out a song for the show next week.

Predictably, the decision to give the spotlight to a known abuser, after condemning Lambert’s gay-but-perfectly-legal stage shenanigans, has caused some to question ABC’s logic. A source for the network admits to the paper:

“The network is giving a mixed message—that it doesn’t trust someone who shocked with an unpredictable show and a gay kiss, but then it is happy to go ahead with Chris Brown, who was convicted of felony assault.”

Yes, but, to be fair, Brown has apologized for beating the hell out of Rihanna. Kind of.  Sorta. When he hasn’t been busy suggesting that she should have kept her big mouth shut about the whole thing.

Tell us in the comments section: Are Good Morning America’s priorities way off base?
