Adam Lambert’s dad thinks he should say sorry

Among the people who weren’t thrilled with Adam Lambert’s controversial American Music Awards performance: His dad

Among the people who weren’t thrilled with Adam Lambert’s controversial American Music Awards performance: His dad, usmagazine.com reports. “My dad was like, ‘Maybe you should apologize, Adam,’” he said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday. “I was like, ‘You know, dad, I don’t feel like I did anything wrong. It just wasn’t maybe the right judgment call. It’s a taste thing more than an obscenity thing. I think it’s just a taste level.’”

During his performance, he smooched another guy, simulated oral sex and flipped off the audience, Looking back, “maybe that wasn’t the best first impression to make again,” Lambert, 27, says. “I mean, I had fun up there, I had a good time, my dancers had fun and the band had fun.”

Still, he said he felt people walked away from his performance “feeling disrespected. I would never intend to disrespect anybody. So that was not my intention.”

He said that “people aren’t used to seeing gay men portrayed that way on TV. The gay male image in the media tends to be very (clichéd) and safe ... I think I got up there and put more energy ... I was putting on a character, putting on a persona, being this kind of rock star, kind of dangerous kind of guy. After seeing one of my favorites Lady Gaga tear it apart on stage ... I don’t know something came over me, and I got caught up in the moment and maybe went a little too far.”
