No Adam, It's Not Because You're Gay

After reading a recent article in the New York Post, I caught (yet another) story on the Adam Lambert debacle from the American Music Awards (If you haven’t heard about this by now, you’ve obviously been hiding from space aliens, or were abducted by them). Speaking to CBS’ Early Show on which he will now appear he feels that his appearance on ABC was cancelled because he’s gay and not because of his racy performance. He also went on to say that “if it had been a female pop performer doing (those) moves … I don’t think there would be nearly as much of an outrage.”

WRONG. Adam, have you forgotten the Britney Spears controversy with her, Madonna, and Christina Aguilera? I know a lot of people that still talk about it, and I know a lot of people who were offended by it. The fact that you’re gay has nothing to do with Good Morning America’s decision. Please don’t play that card if you want to be a serious entertainer! I don’t see GMA signing up Marilyn Manson either. There are only certain performers that they are going to hire for their show, which they consider a wholesome, family show. Why would you want to be on that anyway? I mean, besides the exposure, of course. You don’t need to worry about exposure though; the media is milking your AMA performance for all it’s worth. Trust me, Adam, everyone knows your name now, and most don’t care that you’re gay. Sexual orientation has nothing to do with whether people like you. I think you’re a great singer, but I’m not running out to buy your albums.

What’s everyone else think? Is Adam right to be playing the gay card? Did GMA shut him down because he kissed another man onstage, or was it simply the fact that they watched his entire performance and said, “No way, not on our show.”? Do you even care about Adam Lambert?

Comments are open. Feel free to post some.
