Adam also discussed the American Music Awards controversy, where the American Idol runner-up kissed a male member of his band during his televised performance last November. “Some members of the American audience that watched the show felt that it was distasteful, ’cause they think that gay is wrong,” Lambert said.
With an image of Madonna kissing Britney Spears at the 2003 MTV VMAs projected on the wall, Jonathan Ross pointed out the obvious double standard. “That’s been absorbed in the culture, and now they’re saying that was six years ago,” the host said. “But still, if it’s a guy kissing a guy they have a problem with it.”
Good stuff. And it’s great to see UK TV personalties readily accepting and joking around with Adam, rather than the ones here who treated him like he’s was some ticking timebomb following the AMAs.
