Adam Lambert Says Editing His Performance is Discrimination, Won’t Be Performing FYE on Letterman

After his controversial American Music Awards performance, Adam Lambert told the Los Angeles Times, that if his performance was edited for the West Coast, it would be discrimination.

“If it’s gonna be edited, then in a way that’s discrimination. I don’t mean to get political, but Madonna, Britney and Christina weren’t edited, ” Adam said. “It’s a shame. Female entertainers have been risqu for years. Honestly, there’s a huge double standard.””

The West Coast feed was edited. I’m hearing the simulated blow job was edited out.

Adam tells Access Hollywood that “shock is fun” and name checks artists like Prince and David Bowie who also pushed the envelope.   Plus, Adam reveals to Access that he’s not singing “For Your Entertainment” when he performs on Letterman tomorrow night (for a show that will air Nov. 25)

He says the song he’s performing will show his “vulnerable” side. My money is on the Pink-penned tune, “Whataya Want From Me”, released as a single download with the Deluxe version of Adam’s debut album (out today). Some radio stations are spinning it.
