Adam Lambert's queer,obscene antics draw

Now I know I ain't alone in my views. Lambert, of American Idol fame made his first performance outside of Idol also his most controversial one (yet). First, the show was BDSM-themed with dancers in leather and fishnet. That ain't obscene, for more and more celebs are hinting at it in both their attires as well as during their performances though in a generally milder way.

The singer,who confirmed he was gay in an interview with the Rolling Stones magazine arrived on stage, dragging a female dancer across the stage. "Hip-thrusting" Lambert then proceeded to pull a male dancer's head into his gyrating crotch. He then had a female grab him and he in turn snapped the bikini area of another female's costume. After ending his obscene act with a look of defiance, he later tweeted

"All hail freedom of expression and artistic integrity. :) fans: I adore u. " - Adam Lambert
Lambert fought back saying that if people had been upset by his performance that it is a "form of discrimination and it's too bad". Just because Lambert isn't straight doesn't mean he has a license to vulgarity and all those who dislike him are homophobics. If stimulating sex on stage is his idea of "freedom of expression", then it's time LBGT groups begin condemning him. That would be a good way to promote tolerance. The Parents Television Council (PTC), a media pressure group which campaigns against "indecent" content on US television, posted a statement on its website calling the show "tasteless" and "vulgar". "They just can't believe the nature of the content, the explicit nature, and how much graphic content there was" said the President, Timothy Winter.

Already 1500 complaints have been lodged in the United States against the singer who told US network CNN that the kiss was "in the moment."
