Is Adam Lambert The Victim Of A Double Standard?
As we mentioned yesterday, after his AMA performance in which he kissed a guy and simulated oral sex, Adam Lambert’s performance on “Good Morning America” this morning was swiftly canceled. Instead, Lambert was interviewed on the CBS morning show, “The Early Show” (who scooped him up to perform after ABC gave him the boot) where he talked about the “double whammy” of being a gay man in show business. Lambert said that with his “background in theater,” he just got “carried away” with his sexually-explicit performance, but he didn’t feel he owed anyone an apology. “I’m a performer, not a babysitter,” Lambert said as he explained it was never his intention to offend anyone. Lambert feels the backlash he’s getting now isn’t so much about pushing the boundaries of live television — after all, we’ve seen plenty of women and straight men push boundaries — it’s that he dared to be explicit as a gay man. “If it had been a female performer doing those things up on the stage I don’t think there would be nearly as much outrage,” he said, pointing out that Eminem bragged of 17 rapes in the song he performed at the awards show, and that Janet Jackson grabbed the crotch of one of her dancers, both of which no one seems to be talking about. So, what do you guys think? Is there a double- standard? Are people upset by Lambert’s performance simply because he’s a gay man?
