Flamboyant singer Adam Lambert has pledged to overhaul his sometimes over-the-top act in accordance to rules set forth by the Malaysian government and fellow musician Lance Bass told RadarOnline.com exclusively that he supports Lambert’s much-talked about decision.
“I don’t think it’s that out of the question especially if you go into someone else’s country,” Bass told RadarOnline.com at a news conference Tuesday announcing the 2010 American Music Awards nominations.
Lambert has agreed to restrictions against stripping, jumping, and kissing on stage. “It’s something I’m doing out of respect,” Lambert said in an interview with the AP. “It’s just one little thing. Man kissing another man is something that government really doesn’t appreciate.”
Bass, who is also openly gay, agreed with Lambert’s sentiment.
“You have to respect the laws, the beliefs… you might not have to believe it yourselves but it is all about respect and I think there’s a time and place for everything and if it’s not the time and place for that then you should change your act.”
Lambert came under fire last year for his performance on the American Music Awards during which he kissed another male and had a dancer simulate oral sex on him. Of that performance, Bass gives him two thumbs up.
“I thought it was great. It’s America you can do anything you want here. Kiss a guy, kiss a girl, kiss whatever! It’s awesome!”
