Key Comments: Two Hollywood Life Readers Say Adam Lambert Had To Go!

Tue, November 24, 2009 6:00pm EDT by 1 Comment

Our HollywoodlifeLife.com BFFs agree with GMA — Adam Lambert is Too Risky!

2dimplzs says, “When you have artists who are all about shock value and going all out with no regard for who is watching them you HAVE to make the decision for your viewers and your company as to whether or not you want that kind of person on your show and the back lash that can come from it. Morning television is not the place to show case what Adam Lambert is trying to do.

How can you be so sure that he’s going to “tone it down” because of being on morning television? Adam Lambert is about making a name for himself and he proved on the AMA’s that he’s willing to do any and everything to hang on to his 15 minutes of fame and be more than the American Idol who didn’t win!”

pdxirish tells us, “I’m a 33 year old dad of 2 small boys. I’ve NEVER responded to a blog or article before and I’m not easily disturbed or shocked… I AM SO pissed, in fact, I’m still boiling from what I saw on Sunday night.”

I am a 52 year old dad of 1 adult and 2 teenagers. I did not see the show live but I have seen the videos. While I am disappointed that Adam chose to be so extreme out of the gate before he established his ‘bona fides’ I am not at all put out that his late night performance was so outrageous. He is pushing the envelope just like so many other artists out there. Does the 33 year old dad remember Alice Cooper. Maybe not, since he was probably his kids age at the time but Cooper and David Bowie and Kiss were all denounced in the early to mid ’70s for their androgenous and/or violent stage performances. Artistic aspirations aside, rock stars have always been pushing the envelope: Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Freddy Mercury, Ozzy Ozbourne, Madonna, Prince, Marilyn Manson, etc… It is a double standard when the outrage is greater for Adam then it is for Madonna & B. Spears to tongue wrestle or endless shows where women are inamorata on stage. Let’s grow up, be good parents and remember that we give our kids the context in which they become shocked, outraged, interested, devoted, or changed by what they see.
