Adam Lambert Adds Apologies to His Repertoire

After endangering his career with a risque performance at the American Music Awards last week, Adam Lambert is beginning to wonder if thrusting his crotch in another dude’s face isn’t really the best way to win over the public’s affection.

The American Idol fave and eyeliner enthusiast took to The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday to issue a public mea culpa for his raunch-infused performance of “For Your Entertainment” at the AMAs.

Lambert admitted,

“It was maybe a little too far…I think in hindsight I look back on it and I go, ‘OK, maybe that wasn’t the best first impression to make again, the first second impression.’ I mean, I had fun up there, I had a good time, my dancers had fun and the band had fun.”

The singer added,

“I respect people and feel like people walked away from that feeling disrespected. I would never intend to disrespect anybody. So that was not my intention.”

But hey, don’t get the wrong idea; he wasn’t just junk-thrusting for the sake of junk-thrusting. As Lambert sees it, he was simulating oral sex onstage with a purpose:

“The gay male image in the media tends to be very clique and safe…I was putting on a character, putting on a persona being this kind of rock star, kind of dangerous kind of guy.”

Adam Lambert: He’s not just a singer—he’s making gay men dangerous for the television-viewing public.
