Just hours after ABC pulled the plug on Adam Lambert‘s scheduled Good Morning America appearance Ryan Seacrest spoke to the American Idol runner up on his hit KIIS FM breakfast show to get his reaction to all the controversy.
Lambert admitted that his Sunday night performance at The American Music Awards did get a little “carried away” but refused to apologize for his routine, saying, “It’s choreography, we were dancing. The sexuality of it kind of got a little more extreme when I got up on stage. I think the adrenaline kind of took me over, and I admit it, and I’m proud of the fact that I did get a little carried away.
“I don’t feel I owe anyone an apology for anything. I performed, it was late night TV, I did something that female performers have been doing for years, no different. It’s just the fact that I’m me and it’s a little different for people. It’s really not that big of a deal.
“I’m not a babysitter, I’m a performer.”
And on ABC’s decision to cancel his GMA performance,”Obviously I respect their decision, they gotta do what they gotta do. 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.”
