Eat Your Heart Out

It's my blog, and I can post whatever I want. :)

Haven't had the time or energy to watch Adam Lambert's controversial AMAs performance on the Internet just yet. Bet it was memorable!

I have my own values and beliefs, but where Adam's concerned, I tend to give him a wide berth. Maybe I would've tsk-tsked more if I were younger, but having travelled quite extensively over the past decade, I think my tolerance threshold where entertainers are concerned has shifted considerably.

All the hoo-ha over "the kiss" and the S&M theme is such a load of crock, especially coming from the United States, where freedom of expression is sacred and encouraged.

So a gay fellow locked lips with another gay fellow. Big deal.

So it happened during a prime-time programme, on a network that's owned by Disney. Err, don't you have a 5-second lag time for editing purposes?

So Adam's affiliation with American Idol is now a sin? For many - including myself - he's the only reason viewers bother to tune in.

Let's dispose of the blatant hypocrisy and accept Adam for who he is - flamboyant, courageous, and undeniably one of the most exciting performers to hit the mainstream in a long while.
