When Adam Lambert took his bathhouse review to primetime during the 2009 AMAs, a lot of people complained making him change to heavy flow tampons and cry to his Care Bear. He said he made a bad judgment call. 5,000 people agreed with him. TSG reports:
After “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert kissed a male bandmate/simulated oral sex with another guy on ABC’s “American Music Awards” broadcast, the Federal Communications Commission received more than 5000 complaints about the primetime homoeroticism. On the following pages you’ll find a sampling of the letters sent to the FCC by Americans who were outraged by Lambert’s raunchy November 22 performance of his song “For Your Entertainment.” The correspondence was released after TSG filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the FCC. Many correspondents believed that Lambert, 26, ruined an evening they had been sharing with their children (most of whom who love Taylor Swift). A viewer from Rainbow City, Alabama thought that Lambert, who is gay, was “shoving his homosexuality down our throats.” An Ohio resident wrote of being glad their 94-year-old grandmother had gone to bed before Lambert’s “disgusting” display. However, the viewer noted, the elderly relative did have to endure a Shakira performance during which the gyrating singer was seen “pushing her twat in my face.” Another writer wondered whether a kiss shared by two “fudge packers” fell below broadcast standards.
Look I have nothing against gay people. If I ever need a wedding planned or if I ever need to find out my color season I’ll call one, but do I really need to see them blow each other on a music award show? Seriously. The homeless guys I pay to beat each other up at least have the decency not to bleed out where I can’t see them. Quite frankly, I just find that rude.
