When Adam Lambert went to Skylight Studios for Tuesday night's launch of VEVO, the new controversial music-video site, New York Magazine wanted him to dish about other celebrity scandals, in particular those surrounding Tiger Woods. To his credit, he refused! “I think it’s funny that we focus so much on people’s personal lives,” he said. “He plays golf. Let’s focus on golf.”
Adam wouldn’t elaborate on Eminem’s new song, "Elevator," which contains new homophobic lyrics. Eminem uses the words “fake it” in place of “faggot” to refer to Adam, Lance Bass, and Clay Aiken. “He called me a lovely word, a lovely word,” was all Adam would say, preferring not to give the has-been rapper additional attention.

Lambert did answer questions about the uproar over his 2009 American Music Awards (AMAs) performance. “You know, I was just doing a number. I really think people overreacted,” he told New York Magazine. “But we're moving forward now. You learn from things that happen. So, I realize now, ‘Okay, so maybe I'll just be more consistent with rehearsal.’ You know, so that if during rehearsal, if there's a problem, I don't piss any network off, and I learn something. I think the other thing is, I move forward and not dwell on it over and over again. It’s over.”

Not content, they asked Adam what inspired the “raunchy performance” in the first place. “Spirit of rock and roll, you know,” he answered. “For me it’s all about being raw and interpreting the lyrics of the song and just going with your instincts.”

Then they asked him if it had anything to do with Lambert’s idol, David Bowie, whom they called “a fake-fellatio pioneer.” “Well, that moment was sort of impromptu and off the cuff,” said Lambert. “I wasn't thinking about Bowie when I was up there. I was thinking about sex!”

On The View today, Adam told the girls that all the attention his steamy American Music Awards (AMAs) performance has received has taken attention away from his singing and that is his only regret. He also reiterated his statement that he is not a baby sitter and that too much has been made of it.

Adam Lambert will be featured in the December 14, 2009 issue of People Magazine. Here are a few quotes: “’Some people are on board, some people are a little confused by it,’ Lambert said on his mission to bring back glam-rock.” Plus “Adam Bares All: The American Idol glam-rocker dishes on the quirks of fame, pushing boundaries (exhibit A: his raunchy, American Music Awards number) and going toe-to-toe with Madonna.” And “I don’t want to alienate people. Sometimes I think, ‘Should I tone it down? But everything in me says, no, go with your instincts.’” We certainly agree! Long live Adam Lambert and artistic freedom!
