When Adam Lambert sat down on the couch with the ladies of ABC’s The View in a not-so-live segment that aired today, Barbara Walters explained that the reason he was being pre-taped was—duh!—because of the singer’s controversial American Music Awards performance last month.
“Yeah. Protect your children, people,” Adam quipped in this second meeting with Walters to air in the past 24 hours. “It’s a one-time performance,” Glambo continued, as Babs continued to ramble on about the singer’s perceived “loose-cannon” nature. “It wasn’t meant to be an announcement of this is how I’m gonna be, now, all of the time.”
He does, however, admit that his father called him a few days after the AMAs and said his son should think about issuing an apology to the public. “I said, ‘Well, Dad, I didn’t do anything wrong’,” Lambert notes. “I don’t think I’m sorry for anything.” Watch the full View interview after the jump.
The American Idol runner-up’s best line came when Joy Behar remarked, “You’re not exactly a nice Jewish boy, let’s face it, Adam.”
His response: “I’m a little different. My dreidel spins the other way.”
Here’s hoping this puts the whole ABC vs. Adam Lambert thing to rest, because that’s one on-again, off-again relationship that’s getting nearly impossible to keep up with.
