We asked you this morning outside the Early Show studio if you were turned on or off by Adam’s outrageous AMA performance. Guess what — you still love him like crazy!
Despite his provocative performance at Sunday’s American Music Awards and Good Morning America canceling his scheduled appearance, Adam Lambert‘s fans haven’t lost any of their fervor. This morning, Adam serenaded his fans in front of the camera of CBS’s The Early Show. And what did his fans think? — consensus was that the producers of GMA “missed out big time!”
Adam’s controversial moves on Sunday don’t seem to surprise his fans at all. “I was not shocked by it. I know who he is and what he has done in the past and that’s just him being him,” explains Meredith, a fan of Lambert since his first round on American Idol. “He has so many different sides to him and what he showed at the AMAs was just one side,” she continues. “That’s why we all like him, because he attracts so many different people,” agrees Kristin, another Lambert supporter.
Even though fans expect Lambert’s edgy side to cause uproar, the heat of the outside world doesn’t seem to sway the passion of his fans. “I knew he was going to get some backlash from it, from a lot of parents or from people that are a little bit more conservative. I knew they might have a problem with it, but I loved it,” says another fan during this morning’s Early Show performance.
Adam’s AMA performance didn’t shock the fans in the least bit, nor did the reality of GMA canceling on Adam. Lorraine, another Lambert fan, tells us Lambert’s motif for entertaining is no new thing: “I was shocked only because [the producers of GMA] knew he was going to be shocking and eye-popping through the show. So he popped our eye one more time, we were warned.”
So, to all the people who find the Adam Lambert controversy from this week offending, his fans don’t really care what you have to say. “If you are an Adam Lambert fan, you know what he stands for and he stands for representing his music,” says a fan from New Jersey on behalf of the all the “Glamberts” out there. His fans know that he has talent — and that’s all that really matters.
