Here is new video of Adam Lambert "For Your Entertainment" which falls on the heels of some crazy promotion in Adam's favor with the cancelling of GMA and now his performance this morning on "The Early Show" along with an appearance on David Letterman.
Let me know what you think of the new video.-Dr.FB
After GMA said no back-up dancers and Lambert said no and then GMA pulled the plug with Adam basically pulling out, Lambert released a few statements:
On GMA not letting him do his act on the show;
"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. 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."
On his AMA performance double-standard of grinding men and women and kissing a guy;
"I don't feel I owe anyone an apology for anything. I performed, it was late night TV, I did something that female performers have been doing for years, no different. I do think there's a slight double standard. We've seen female pop performers doing extremely sexual routines for years and all of the sudden a guy does it and it's crazy."
On people complaining about his AMA performance:
"It's choreography, we were dancing. The sexuality of it kind of got a little more extreme when I got up on stage. I think the adrenaline kind of took me over, and I admit it, and I'm proud of the fact that I did get a little carried away. It's just the fact that I'm me and it's a little different for people. It's really not that big of a deal. I'm not a babysitter, I'm a performer."
Very interesting but oh what great promotion.-DR.FB
The backlash of his American Music Award performance is happening.
Adam Lambert was supposed to perform on Good Morning America tomorrow in front of the Hudson Theatre for about 700 fans. GMA insisted that ONLY Adam perform and without any of his back-up dancers so there will be no threat of any crotch holding faces or same sex kisses.
Adam has not backed down and if he cannot bring his back up dancers, he will take his performance to the Early Show on CBS. No word if the Early Show performance would be tomorrow.
Adam has already recorded an interview with GMA where he talked about the double-standard of a woman kissing another woman on TV is fine but not a man.
I will keep you posted as news breaks and thanks to the Adam Lambert fan and message boards for their support of drfunkenberry.com-Dr.FB
UPDATE: Its true! Adam has officially pulled out and will perform on the Early Show tomorrow on CBS!!
No word if GMA will air the interview they taped with Adam. CBS sure was quick! You can't buy this type of promotion.
Ewan McGregor stopped by Good Morning America yesterday to promote his new movie "Angels & Demons." Nothing like throwing horseshoes to promote a movie.
Yes, Obi-Wan threw horseshoes on GMA. "Angels & Demons" is technically the sequel to "The Da Vinci Code", and Ewan did not even need to leave L.A. while filming took place in Rome, which is one of the reasons he took the gig. Must be nice. Must be nice.-Dr.FB
