'Early Show' Censors Gay Kiss ... When It's Men

11/25/2009 3:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

As far as "The Early Show" goes, a kiss is just a kiss ... except when it's a male-on-male kiss.

Adam Lambert

During an interview on "The Early Show" this morning, Adam Lambert's AMAs same-sex face suck was blurred out -- but moments later they ran a completely uncensored version of Madonna and Britney's infamous 'lesbian' lip-lock at the MTV VMAs.

All along Adam has said, "...if it had been a female pop performer doing the moves that were on the stage, I don't think there would be nearly as much of an outrage." Dude may have a point.

TMZ called CBS for comment -- so far, their lips are sealed.

Fed Up, You are persecuting your friends, and while you have the right to think what they do in their bed is wrong, they have the right to carry on without your bullying and discrimination. Telling your friends that what they do is akin to inbreeding is not only rude, but you're indeed shoving your agenda in their faces. Why would you feel the need to share your thoughts with them, with what they do in their bedroom?

Your friends are right--either you support them, or you're not friends with them.

Firstly, the kiss was way more sexual than the one between Madonna and Britney both of whom are grown women with children who have been in the business for years. Secondly, it was more than just the kiss it was taking someone's head and shoving it into your private parts on national television and also fondling another dancer in a sexual manor another shock jock just what we need but the women can do it, its ok statement, is B.S. and just an excuse. It was more than disgusting to watch. It ruined the performance for me which I thought would have been much better without those three things happening.

The bottom line is that Lambert may have called attention to himself by this but in the process lost more fans than he gained, It may be the reason he never got anywhere in the business until AI. Now he's taking his opportunity and trashing it.

"Lambert may have called attention to himself by this but in the process lost more fans than he gained".

You think so? Doubtful. It clearly it isn't affecting his record sales--he's no. 4 on Itunes and expected to be no. 3 in sales this week.

There is no logical explanation as to why it is "ok" to support women kissing each other, but it is horrible that men would do the same thing. ARGGGGG!

What a f*ckin punk. In the heart of a recession, with global warming, famine and REAL issues, he's crying about his own lifestyle??? Hey, little San Diego boy, get a life. The entire City of San Diego should salvage their reputation and check this punk.

uhHuh    

a kiss is a kiss....GRABBING SOMEONE ELSES' CROTCH, FAUX FALACIO, BUTT POKING & ALL OF THAT DOES NOT BELONG ON ANY CHANNEL OTHER THAN A PORN REGARDLESS IF IT'S MAN OR WOMAN, DIDN'T APPRECIATE THE LESBO KISS THAT DESPERATE MADONNA FLUNG OUT THERE EITHER.
I DON'T APPRECIATE ANYBODY THROWIN THEIR BIZNIZ IN MY FACE, & if THE AWARD SHOW (any) CANNOT CONTROL WHAT'S GOIN ON THEN MAYBE WE SHOULDN'T WATCH, I know my kids won't anymore. THAT'S JUST SHAMEFUL.


IT'S CALLED (ready???) "COMMON DECENCY & RESPECT ". GROW SOME.

@M...Adam Lamberts pre sales were really strong. That might be the #'s you are looking at. I don't think he will see a boost from his AMA performance. Ultimately, Smooth Criminal is right--he will end up damaging his career, not helping it.

Sooo...if two people are gay and they kiss on tv, it's wrong and sick, but if two straight people of the same sex kiss on tv, that's okay and not sick? That doesn't even make a little bit of sense. There was no reason to not show the kiss. Why pick that particular clip to show when they know they're going to blur out a particular section? It's very much a double standard going on...show both or show neither. Otherwise, they contradict their own standards.

@ MinnesotaNice:

NO, I'm not looking at the numbers pre-AMA. The article was published today, with sales regarding Susan Boyle, Lady Gaga and Adam Lambert put them in the 1, 2, and number 3 sales spots, respectively. The author stated that this included sales through Tuesday.
History has proven those who push the most buttons are the most lasting..his career be damned? Why don't you just wait and see before you call it.
