Adam Lambert made his stage debut last night on the AMA stage, and we guess he succeeded, because people are definitely talking about his performance today!
Adam performed his hit single “For Your Entertainment,” which included a lot of sexually explicit moves. He dragged one female dancer around the stage by her leg, whipped a male dancer, made out with his keyboardist, and simulated oral sex with another!
Adam’s performance got edited for the west coast feed of the show. He responded to that saying, "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. 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."
"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 said.
Added Lambert, "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 did you think of Adam’s performance?
