The statement from the CBS rep reads:
"We gave this some real thought. The Madonna image is very familiar and has appeared countless times including many times on morning television. The Adam Lambert image is a subject of great current controversy, has not been nearly as widely disseminated, and for all we know, may still lead to legal consequences."
That's the best they could come up with?????
It still doesn't excuse their blatant homophobia and sexism!
