Good Morning America Cuts Adam Lambert From Concert Series

Good Morning America Cuts Adam Lambert From Concert Series

Adam Lambert‘s performance on tomorrow’s Good Morning America has been canceled.

An ABC News spokesperson reveals, “Given his controversial American Music Awards performance, we were concerned about airing a similar concert so early in the morning.”

In response to the situation, Adam told Ryan Seacrest, “Obviously I respect their decision, they gotta do what they gotta do. It’s too bad, I think there were a lot of fans who were excited to come see me.”

He added, “They probably had a lot of pressure coming at them from certain people who weren’t happy about it. I respect their decision – I don’t necessarily agree with it, but they need to do what they need to do.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK of GMA nixing Adam’s performance???

well ya, you can’t just go on television, give a crude performance and expect this not to happen. I’m sure that’s just what he wanted though.

# 3

I just find it hypocritical b/c they would have no problem airing a performance by another artist (cough- heterosexual- cough) and have sexual innuendos and profanity in their music/choreography.

I just thought Lambert’s vocals were off at the AMA’s- but I wasn’t really shocked by what he did on stage.

If Madonna can simulate masturbation on her Blonde Ambition Tour circa 90/91, then Adam’s performance is not the least bit shocking.

There is obviously some homophobia going on here (in my opinion).

# 4

that is exactly the response that he wanted. So congrats to him he is totally working the Pr system!

# 5

Paula, cough…. give me a break, get of the cough…… homophobia card… He was really in appropriate in his performance, why?? Do we need to see all that, is he a Singer or a performer???

# 6

He is lame anyway. Good for GMA. All he does squeal and try to get attention from shock value. What’s really shocking is that people actually care. He is a gimmick.

# 7

ok Rihanna can perform almost naked and get’s to be on Good Morning America once again with nothing on, but he kisses some guys and makes the AMA’s interesting and the condemn him for it that is absolutely ridiculous. I say he sue ABC for discrimination!!

# 8

Totally homophobic!!!

If Rihanna can perform looking like that, then he should as well.

# 9

Yeah right on GMA!!

@ #8 Wendy — so true. Seems there is a huge double standard here. A female can look like a complete skeezer but a gay man doing something suggestive is verboten. That’s pathetic.

@Paula

But Madonna did that at CONCERTS where people paid money to see her. She did NOT do that on National Television like Adam did where kids were watching. You can’t even compare the two. Big difference.

I do have to say I think it’s wrong of GMA to cancel his appearence though. Adam did go a little too far, but come on, this is ridiculous.

He was picked up by CBS. F*** GMA and ABC. Their loss!

more like Good Morning Homophobic America.

@Yvonne:

Learn to spell, or better yet, glance into a dictionary from time to time. WTF does “in appropriate” mean?

By kissing that guy and dong that crude crap he just set the gay civil rights movement back twenty years. Gays have fought for decades to end the stereotype of sexual deviants and to be seen as respectable family orientated people. This guy needs to dissapear. Forever.

Screw them. Who watched GMA anyway?

@paula:

There is no homophobia happening here. He was on GMA for summer concert.

dear united state of america,

it’s 2009 now (2010 in a month) so now i think it’s time to chillax, time to stop with the “puritanism” hypocrisy !!! times have changed in case you didn’t notice !!!

Good decision!

in europe, adam’s performance is old hat. he’s is playing the gender card but it’s a joke. men have always had the upper hand in life especially in the music business. this isn’t a gay issue, this is a misogynist one that everyone is tired of. I bet you all the idol execs i regretting there decision to back adam because he will cost them more than he will make. he’s reckless and demanding without the chops to back it up. the biggest question is where can he go from here?

Adam Lambert isn’t doing anything that other avant-garde mainstream artists haven’t done; Madonna, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga, Britney Spears have all rocked the world with racy intensity.
Although, it’s an interesting phenomenon that the current society has more tolerance for provocative behavior from female performers.

It’s okay to be “out there” and be controversial, but at least do it with a sense of style and purpose (IE: Lady Gaga). But don’t act like the audience is stupid and can’t sniff out your emulation and desperation.
And don’t go around expecting the professional industry to roll out the red-carpet when you’re parading around town with such brazen rebellion and disdain.

@ommmz:
so right. reality tv people need a dose of it. you want to play with the big boys, this is how it works. maybe he’s just surprised no one is buying what he’s selling

@Ommmz

But those artists you mentioned were actually established before they started really being over the top or raunch. Madonna for one was always “out there”, but she didn’t really start being over the top until later in her career and she certainly wasn’t doing what Adam was doing when she started out.

All those artists you mentioned waited first to establish themselves and had success first before being completely over the top. It was a gradual process whereas Adam just put it all out there already without being established. Adam hasn’t even had any success yet. It was just a bad move on his part.
