Adam Lambert had no idea his racy American Music Awards performance would ignite so much controversy.
He was axed from performing on Good Morning America this morning because execs at ABC felt his performance was "inappropriate."
Luckily for him CBS came to the rescue and agreed to have him on their morning show, and of course he was asked about his provocative performance.
"I admit, I did get carried away, but I don't see anything wrong with it," he said on CBS' The Early Show Wednesday. "I do see how people got offended and that was not my intention. My intention was just to interpret the lyrics to my song and have a good time up there."
He admitted that most of the racy parts in his performance, which included Adam kissing a male dancer, simulating oral sex with another male dancer, leading another around on a leash and fondling several of his backup dancers, was all "impromptu."
"ABC was taken a little by surprise -- and that wasn't my intention," he said. "I wasn't being sneaky." Being on stage, he said, "It got the most of me."
He also said he understands why parents are upset with him, but it wasn't his intention to upset anyone or cause so much chaos. He added that he looked "out in the crowd" and saw some of his favorite pop stars and thought, "'I wanna let loose!' It just kind of got the best of me."
What did you think of Adam's AMA performance? Was it too racy for TV? Or is it unfair of him to get so much backlash when Madonna and Britney barely got any for their girl-on-girl kiss. Tell us your thoughts!
