I wasn’t going to write about the AMAs anymore until Adam Lambert decided to compare himself to David Bowie and Madonna in the context of bitching about ABC editing out his simulated blowjobs on the West Coast. Access Hollywood reports:
“If it’s edited, that’s discrimination,” Adam said. “I will be a little disappointed because there is a little bit of discrimination going in this country. 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.”
Adam said he’s only trying to add a little shock to his show – something many before him have done.
“Shock is fun, shock rock is like something that existed, for example, like in the 70′s, Alice Cooper…David Bowie, you had artists that liked to push the envelope and that’s what made them so fresh,” he explained. “Prince for example, wore a**less chaps one year…I think that surprise is part of entertainment. I think that it keeps people watching its fun, it makes you laugh and it should be that way. And if it made you uncomfortable, maybe I’m not for you.”
Yes, it really is shocking a network awards show aimed at a general audience edited out a virtual unknown from American Idol mouth-fucking his entire dance crew onstage. Don’t they realize he’s just like David Bowie minus all the talent and experience? It’s not like he can’t just Twitter all that stuff in later, you guys. C’mon.
