Lambert Taboo, Madonna Okay
Adam Lambert says the censoring of his guy-on-guy kiss by ABC is nothing but a double-standard -- and it looks like he's right.
Lambert's American Music Awards performance
was fully expressive of his apparently exuberant sexuality, ending with a deep tonguing from one of his male dancers. But not everyone saw the passion as it played out -- ABC cut the kiss from its West Coast feed.
"Lady Gaga smashing whiskey bottles, Janet Jackson grabbing a male dancer's crotch, Eminem talking about how Slim Shady has 17 rapes under his belt -- there was a lot of very adult material on the
AMAs this year, and I know I wasn't the only one," Lambert said.
"The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning TV. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as
widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences," the network said in a BS statement.
