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???

    i love my gay friends but i think this response is a reminder that they are in the small minority and they aren’t as powerful as they think they are. blogs have caused my girls to lose their clout and perspective. adam can’t expect the votes of america on idol & then say eff you the first chance he gets… he’ll learn the hard way.

    Miranda Says:

    it probably wouldn’t be a bad idea for Adam to tone it down just a bit. He’d be a lot more accessible to a lot more people that loved him from American Idol. But I do think it’s kind of ridiculous that they didn’t expect he knows his boundaries and his audience and he probably wouldn’t be so overtly sexual on a morning show. I mean he’s not stupid. I agree with the double standard thing though how someone like Rihanna can perform in a sexy outfit and act sexual on stage but most likely because Adam is gay they find that unnacceptable or risky? LAME.

    No double standard. Nobody should get away with crap like that. Know your audience Adam. Most of us didn’t appreciate your vulgarity.

    His performance was beyond innuendo and it has nothing to do with being hetero vs homo, the performance (1) sucked, (2) was crude and (3) was attention seeking to the point of desperation.
    He has pushed the gay and lesbian movement back 10 steps when he could have been himself (which this image creation certainly is not) and been smarter with his career (a la Lady Ga Ga for example) and made a more savvy and creative move that would have set him on the path for long-term success…but I guess we’ll see…

    Lola Says:

    And what about kids who are home schooled then? to all you people saying people have done this before…what about all the flack that janet got because her nipple showed at the superbowl. Oh right, that was because she was black right?

    You people have no argument and I’m going to stop wasting my time with such stupid reasoning.

    I guess he wants to go back to stage work!

    Cindy X. Says:

    that performance was entertaining…i don’t know if it was appropriate for the American music awards…his sexual innuendos were too shocking for the national public…his performance had a soft porn musical feeling…his scream singing got a little annoying throughout his performance…all in all…he got his 15 minutes….his music will not be hitting the radio waves…he belongs on broadway.

    HE SAID THE KISS AND OTHER STUFF WAS IMPROVISED, YEAH, I BELIEVE HE DECIDED TO DO THE KISS SO PEOPLE WOULD TALK ABOUT IT THE NEXT DAY INSTEAD OF THE TUMBLE AND THE C*RAPPY VOCALS….CLEVER!

    What hypocrisy, women like Lady Gaga can perform with blood dripping on them, Madonna can perform simulated sex but when a Gay man does it, it’s wrong. America is so Puritan. Oh, well. At least Adam is not hiding in a closet like half the gay men in Hollywood. Tom Cruise anyone? Adam is bold to just be who he is, whatever you think of the performance. Who watches Good Morning America anyway? Oh, grandmas. I forgot.

    Anon Says:

    The people making these decisions are probably a bunch of guys who don’t mind looking at Rihanna’s coochie, but are disturbed by Adam. The USA is really backwards. I’m embarrassed sometimes with how out of it we are, and the rest of the world is way ahead of us.

    I also think that yes, everyone is talking about Adam, but it isn’t cool when you get censored. Fortunately he is remaining calm and not blowing up about it. I also think since he knows how people are, he needs to just use better judgement when he appears on American TV. He should treat all of it as if it was still that cheesey American Idol. LOL!

    ALSO, Madonna performed many erotic performances on MTV, Hello? How quickly we forget her Vogue performance where the dancer goes under her dress.! Hello! Double standard. Gay men still have it bad. Sad.

    No to both het and homo tv sex Says:

    If het sex on tv requires me to be ok with homo sex, then take it all away. I’d rather it stay in the bedroom altogether where it belongs. People think that we need to be ok with incessantly pushing the boundaries or we risk being ‘prude’. Well when is pushing the boundaries going to far? I’d rather be a prude.

    Andrea Says:

    Its not homophobic because if two straight ppl were simulating oral sex that would be just as unacceptable. His performance was disgusting and he probably scarred and tainted a bunch of little kids minds. I think it should have been censored in the first place. Oh and his vocals sucked. Its good that GMA canceled on him but all this crap could have been avoided in the first place had he not been such a narcissistic, egotistic, pervert in the first place.

    Nobody Says:

    The double standard crap is CRAP. Adam STFU they tore Janet apart because of an accident. There is a TIME and a PLACE….save your crappy show for MTV idiot not network TV. Why would ABC want another fine from the FCC?

    we dont need to watch a lame soft P-O-R-N performance and with an ugly guy! Thank You ABC

    happy girl Says:

    OH pluuuuease! Ever watch Gossip Girl and all those shows where ppl are engaging in all kinds of seedy behavior? And violence is ok but not a kiss? And forget reality TV where you have 12 girls sleeping with one guy (Rock of Love). Come on. This is because Adam is gay . That’s it. Yuo may not like his performance but he has the right to do what all the other stars have done for shock value. Go Adam! We love you!

    I have an idea!! Next AMA’s put your children to bed or TIVO the
    show and decide which preformance to show your children.
    This year my children will not watch any of the preformance. I like Adam Lambert and I watch his preformance and it was pretty
    wild but not as bad as some of the preformances in the past!
    If you worry about your children watching things you do not
    consider appropriate then monitor them. If we are going to
    be so righteous about performances at the AMA then make
    it across the board. Starting with the ladys too!! By the way
    Adams album is great!!

    P.S. I also would not let my children watch a new program like
    GMA.

    John Adams Says:

    As a gay man, I’m not enthusiastic about Adam Lambert’s first major public performance at the AMAs. As many have noted in several different discussion forums, his singing was *not* his best, and that’s what should have come across before any of the other antics that occurred. I have my suspicions that he faltered in the ‘talent’ department because he himself was nervous about what he knew he was going to do in the ‘showmanship’ category. (But that’s just my conjecture.)

    I think it’s wrong to yell, “homophobia” regarding any consequences resulting from his AMA performance. He was in control of what he did at the AMAs and is responsible.

    There is a difference between homosexuality and hedonism, and I am really getting ticked off by homosexuals who confuse the two and then cry, “homophobia!” when there’s a backlash. Believe it or not, homosexuals actually *do* have morals. Some of us are even Christians with a set of sexual mores just like everybody else. (Who knew, eh?)

    To my mind, Adam Lambert didn’t “push the envelope” so much as he pushed some buttons – including some of mine. I’m pretty angry with him for crossing the line with the implied oral sex. He was completely selfish and thoughtless (regarding generating ‘buzz’ for his singular career) by doing so, and it’s my opinion that exemplified and fostered a stereotype that all homosexuals are hedonists.

    He could have gotten away with being considered “edgy” and actually doing some good by performing the kiss and the dancer-on-a-leash antics, and then citing the “if the gender/sexual identity roles were changed…” argument. But he didn’t. He had to take it to that *final* step and simulate public, oral sex to carry it across the line into vulgarity.

    Thanks, Adam. Thanks a whole bunch for showing the world that gays can be just as crude and vulgar (and even more so!) than anyone else in show business. Thanks for nothing.

    Melanie Says:

    He likes to play to stereotypes.

    shelby Says:

    To John Adams #69, I totally agree with you. It was the simulated oral sex that crossed the line. Everything else would’ve been glossed over… but not that one. Horrible decision on his part and even a bigger mistake to act so flippant about it.

    joy Says:

    SO GLAD THEY CANCELLED his morning performance. His AMA performance was rude, crude and vulgar. If he expects to appear on TV in the future he needs to realize he has to do it respectfully. When he’s on his own time he can do what he wants but NOBODY wants to see that on a show that’s supposed to honor MUSIC. It wasn’t right when B. & M. did it and it’s not right for him to do it. The AMA’s should tell their performers ahead of time what will be NOT allowed. I thought it really cheapened the show even more than some of it had already been cheapened by some of the outfits. They are there to SING not put on an R or X rated performance. Hope this hits him where it hurts—in the bank account.

    J Says:

    ABC has ALL performers do a sound check and rehearsal so the network must have seen what he was going to do before the show aired. So it is not all of Adam’s fault.

    Kelly Says:

    @Liz: Ha! He has already made it perfectly clear that he doesn’t give a crap who doesn’t like what he does. Even if that means horrified parents who have to cover their kids’ eyes. I don’t think anyone thought this performance through before letting it air.
    @ommmz: I was never offended by anything the people you mentioned did in a performance. So what, they had sexy outfits and danced provacatively. That is nothing compared to what Adam did. I was offended by the performance. It took inappropriate to an entirely different level. It was disgusting and if I had been a fan to begin with I would have been embarassed. I think he should give more thought to his fans. Maybe they weren’t as disgusted by it as I was, but it definitely made them look bad to those who were.@ivelise: Did you see the rest of the performance. It wasn’t making out with a guy that made the performance classless. How about when he shoved a dancer face into his crotch and thrusted, or when he grabbed the female dancers crotch. Making out with a guy was the least of my concern about this performance.@Pandora: I have considered this and tried to decide if I myself am being sexist, but I really don’t think I am. If Britney Spears had done any of the previously mentioned things during a performance, I would also have a problem with it. I didn’t have a problem with the Britney/Madonna kiss and I don’t have a problem with Adam’s kiss. Then again, there was a lot to distract me from that.
    I hope that that performance ruined his career. It was sleezy and we don’t need anyone like him in the industry.
