So I’m not on the West Coast so the version that I got the almost uncensored version of the AMAs. I say almost uncensored because the camera men, and those behind the scenes attempted to cut away from visuals they didn’t want to be seen as soon a possible.
The scenes that I’m talking about include:
Adam Lambert’s head to crotch dance move
Adam Lambert’s make out session with his keyboardist
As the hours have progressed, I’ve been hearing that things were taken out, the performances were edited. JLo’s fall wasn’t there, and neither were Lambert’s risque moves(the kiss with the straight keyboardist did, just not the crotch to head). Here’s what Lambert had to say about the issue,
For me it’s like this, they shouldn’t edit it because plain and simple, they just shouldn’t edit it. Now if there is a policy wherein it blatantly isn’t allowed, then edit it, but if it’s just uncomfortable, then I think the station really and truly have an obligation to play it. The viewers don’t want ABC’s version of the AMAs, they just want the AMAs. Whether they can take what that means, is their problem.
Now in regards to JLo the entire incident there is shady. Why artists, and corporations think that if they erase it from their sites we’ll forget about it, I don’t know but apparently JLo has done all she can to have her fall erased from history. In likeness to Twitter taking Adam Lambert off of trending(I know of once but a friend told me they had to do it 3 times), JLos fall was taken down off of YouTube. Well they tried but… just like with Chris Brown and his cornball comment, we aren’t going to let it die.
BOTTOM LINE: INSTEAD OF INVESTING TIME TRYING TO COVER IT UP, WHY NOT ADMIT WHAT YOU’VE DONE WRONG AND KEEP IT MOVING?? WE ALL FALL AND SLIP UP A LITTLE JLO…BUT I’M NOT SURE I CAN SAY WE ALL MESS UP AS OFTEN AS CHRIS BROWN.
Oh and let me CONTINUE!! I FORGOT this last part! I was just watching AH Nation talk about the incident and I was reminded of another performance. So everyone is bashing Adam for his performance and saying it’s not discrimination, it was just bad taste. Well let me REMIND YOU of the Janet Jackson performance shall I??
Go to minute 2:50 and you’ll see that Janet not only grabs the dancer’s crotch, but he responds and puts his face in hers. So I have to say that Mr. Lambert may have a point here.
