I don`t watch American Idol, don`t care about it at all actually, never have. That being said I am so fired up about this Adam Lambert issue that is going on. I can’t believe the hypocrisy of, well, lots of people, cancelling interviews with him, refusing to air the clip from the American Music Awards that caused the furor.

Madonna and Brittany kissed. Everyone was titillated. Countless numbers of singers have been overtly sexual and suggestive on stage, on t.v., in their lyrics, with some raised eyebrows but mostly big fat whatevs from the masses. Miley Cyrus, a goddess amongst the pre-teens has recently been humping the stage and pole-dancing her way across North America on her tour – have you heard very many complaints? She's 17.

So let's face it. Adam is catching hell because he’s gay and people can’t handle it and are crying for the children etc etc. You know what folks? I am also totally against my kids seeing gay sexual acts simulated on stage. I’m also against them seeing any hetero sexual acts on stage. You can shelter them from this kind of stuff. Turn off the t.v., or don't let them watch grown-up shows. But don’t hide behind the excuse that it’s too graphic for public consumption. Get over yourself, think about why you are really upset and try opening your mind up a little bit.


p.s. Good Morning America cancelled Lambert's appearance on their show, and guess who they replaced him with? Chris Brown. Yes, that guy who beat the shit out of his girlfriend Rihanna. A much, much better role model for America. What a wonderful message that is sending out. Sweet Jesus this makes me mad.

Mean Old Mommy, you are my hero!

You hit the nail on the head with this one. Bravo! The is still such horrible hypocrisy in the media today. Sure, he may have gone over the top with that number at the AMAs, but his heart was in the right place. He'll mature with age and experience, but at least he's being true to himself and not hurting anyone or doing anything wrong. Adam and Rihanna should be new BFFs. ;-)

Yeah this whole "controversy" is stupid! Have you seen some of Madonna's earlier concerts? She had simulated sex on stage with some of her dancers on a giant bed!

The only thing that offended me about the whole performance was his singing. Pretty bad!

I couldn't agree more, Meanie. The hypocrisy is mind-blowing.

Oh ya, the Chris Brown replacement -- good call (NOT). I think yes, a lot of the Adam Lambert thing is because he's gay, but some of it is also because he's a newby. The oldies who have made lots of money for TV stations and record producers, etc.. can be indulged when they misbehave, but when an uproven wannabe does it, he has to be taken down a peg or two. Personally, I don't care if I never see Adam Lambert again, and that's got nothing to do with him being gay; it's got to do with him being a big tool.
