OK, you conspiracy theorists out there, could this one be plausible – Adam Lambert’s entire performance on the American Music Awards show, despite what Lambert said about it being spur of the moment, was preplanned.
His first CD was about to be released.
He had a huge audience and had he done nothing out of the ordinary he would have been just another performer on the show.
And, maybe best of all, it is approaching the holiday season, Black Friday is upon us, and – CHA-CHING! – can you say CD sales?
Humm, just a thought…
And, of course, Good Morning America played into Lambert’s hands by giving him the boot (more publicity, more sales), CBS and The Morning Show picked him up and pretty much devoted portions of two hours to him (more publicity, more sales), CBS blurred out his kissing of another man on the AMA show (more publicity, more sales) and Wednesday night he’ll appear on The Letterman Show (more publicity, more sales).
OK, you do the math…
By the way, here is what Lambert had to say on Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show re. the GMA decision:
“They gotta do what they gotta do,” Lambert said. “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. … It’s really not that big of a deal. I’m not a babysitter, I’m a performer.”
BTW – After blurring out Lambert’s kiss, The Early Show aired unedited footage of Madonna and Britney Spears locking lips. Excuse me, but am I missing something here? No matter what you think of either kiss, can you say double-standard?
