We're disgusted by CBS and this double standard!!!!!!

As we previously mentioned, Adam Lambert appeared on CBS' The Early Show on Wednesday morning to address the controversy surrounding his kiss at the AMAs.

But!

The network blurred out the image of Glambert kissing his band member even though moments later CBS aired the clip of Madonna and Britney making out at the VMA's completely uncensored.

How is this okay???????

    Re: Melley
    Well you know what? your kids SHOULDN'T even be watching TV at that time!.
    Is funny how half of the people who filed a complaint about Adam Lambert's incident were parents geez. Get over it! is 2009!!.



  2. 102

    go to CBS.com then the bottom of the page USER FEEDBACK to complain.



  3. 103

    IT'S ALL GROSS AND EXPLOITIVE-

    BUT I DIDN'T SEE BRITNEY WHIPPING WOMEN WHO WERE COLLARED AND LEASHED.

    IT'S ALL GROSS AND EXPLOITIVE-

    WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO ENTERTAINING PEOPLE? WAS ADAMS PRODUCTION REALLY ENTERTAINING? THERE WAS SO MUCH GOING ON IT WAS JUST A RIDICULOUS CIRCUS.

    SO SELF-INDULGENT, THE SIGN OF A SELF-ABSORBED JERKOFF. BYE BYE ADAM.



  4. 104

    IT IS SO NOT OK!!!!!!!

    But who is in charge here? Network Execs… and who are they? STRAIGHT MEN. Who do you really think they are going to allow the world to watch kissing on their Network Station - Britney & Madonna or Adam & ?



  5. 105

    Wow! How ignorant. It makes me sick! Thanks for having Adam's back with all this Perez. I know it's making you more unpopular than usual. I effing love you if that means anything to you. Haha



  6. 106

    I'm kind of loving that women are getting the upper hand in this. We have been the victim of double standards for YEARS. It's about time men experienced it. HA!



  7. 107

    STOP BRINGING MADONNA AND BRITNEY INTO THIS CRAP! WHY THE HELL DOES BRITNEY GET DRAGGED INTO EVERYONE'S SHIT?!



  8. 108

    Perez, I totally agree with you! Frankly when lesbians are thrown into a TV show, or even the Britney Madanna kiss (Christina was involved but they barely focused on her), it's considered a ratings boost.
    When two men do it, it's considered gross and unnatural.
    If they're going to show one, show the other. If you're going to censor one… censor the other.



  9. 109

    Sure he should've keep it "clean" like everyone says, but he just did it. No turning back people!. People make mistakes so lets move on!.



  10. 110

    yeah, but madonna and britneys kiss wasnt like she was eating her face.
    adam laberts looked like he was tasting the guys stomach. it was a little vulgar for that reason and i can see why they didn't show it.



  11. 111

    I don't think it really matters whether people think being gay is ok or not. Discriminating against someone based on their sexual orientation is wrong… just like discriminating against people of different races or socio-ethnic backgrounds is wrong. CBS should be ashamed of themselves: if they thought Lambert's kiss was too risque, then Madonna+Brit's kiss was too risque to be shown.



  12. 112

    Uhm, as I recall Madonna and Britney's 'making out' lasted uhm, what?
    One, two seconds maybe… And if what they did was 'making out', I wonder what you understand under 'sex'.
    I think it is silly that they blurred out Adam's kiss, but you should compare these two events :)



  13. 113

    I would just like to point out that "One Life to Live" has shown more than one guy on guy kiss in the last month DURING THE DAY. If I see something on TV I don't want to see that I feel will scar me for life, I change the channel. I don't spam e-mail the network and ask for pro wrestling to be banned!



  14. 114

    You are calling a news organization hypocrites that got your DAMNED President elected



  15. 115

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – Ur sick of him? Click the [X] At the top of the page and get off HIS site.



  16. 116

    wah wah wah all you do is bitch and complain. your site is turning into a gay activist site more than a gossip site. post this shit somewhere else.



  17. 117

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – There is NO difference between two women kissing and two men.



  18. 118

    Re: Laroccakiddd – I would come live there with you :)



  19. 119

    STRAIGHT MEN like GIRL ON GIRL… STRAIGHT MEN hate BOY ON BOY… STRAIGHT MEN run the networks… Glambert's kiss and faux sex scene was the STRAIGHT MAN's worst nightmare.



  20. 120

    Perez are you blind? As a gay person, I wasn't appalled at the man on man kiss, it was the simulated blow job! It has no place on prime time, sorry but you're wrong.



  21. 121

    Wasn't the Madonna thing on MTV and not network? That makes a big difference. I don't think they should show either one on television.



  22. 122

    Re: cdiddy – your gross for that homophobic comment.



  23. 123

    It's funny to hear a male entertainer complaining about double standards in the entertainment industry.. Women have been complaining about that for years.



  24. 124

    Its such a double standard. wtf CBS?



  25. 125

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – I should also add, I see no difference between a man and woman kissing, or a man and man, or a woman and woman. Children need to see these things, so they can be accepting from an early age and feel there's nothing wrong with homosexuality.



  26. 126

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – If he doesn't than who will?



  27. 127

    It is allowed because Girl / Girl has become all the rage. The straight girls are kissing girls for shock value and to get the boys attention. And the guys are rooting the girls on, encouraging them. No one is routing the guys on, because it isn't hip to be a gay guy or a bi guy. It is only hip to be a bi chick or pretend to be a bi chick



  28. 128

    look perez!! thats the way it is!!….
    a guy who sleeps with a bunch of girls is a don juan…a girl who sleeps with a bunch of guys..is a whore :) you can't change that….to show 2 guys kissing is disguting….to show 2 girls kissing is hot ….is always gonna be like that….



  29. 129

    some ppls think that two girls making out is extremelly erotic and 2 guy making up is extremelly disgusting.
    but the point is ;ADAM IS AN IDOL FOR TEENS.HE SHOULD ACT LIKE A YOUNG MAN HE IS, AND MADONNAIS MADONNA. SHE LOVES TO SHOCK ,SHES JUST LIKE HER .ITS HER NATURE.WE USED TO SEE HER LIKE THAT.FOR MADONNA ITS NORMAL AND SEXY.
    BUT I TOTALLY AGREE WITH MADONNA ATTITUDE SO I WILL HAVE TO AGREE WITH ADAM.MADONNA FANS are gays too and (im not gay but im a fan) and im sure she will SUPPORT ADAM. THEY ALREADY MET.SHE LIKES HIM A LOT



  30. 130

    ew.



  31. 131

    Re: hader99 – Dude! Liberace never never faked giving a blowjob or ever played tonsel hockey with another guy on network primetime tv. You comparison was not so good



  32. 132

    Re: daviidavo – YEAH U ARE RIGHT.MADONNA IS CONTROVERSIAL.ITS HER NATURE.BRIT NEVER WAS SHES HIPOCRITE.MDONNA IS THE REAL THING



  33. 133

    RIDICULOUS!



  34. 134

    If I do remember, Britney did get a lot of negative publicity, but I think the difference is that Britney and Madonna were on MTV not ABC



  35. 135

    #1 If you don't like Perez, why are you following his site?! Get out of here.
    #2 The male/male kiss is no different than the female/female kiss. The controversy occurs because sick men get thrills out of girl on girl action and will take it in the cheapest form possible. It's those conservative pricks that have problems with gay men. I am a straight woman, and have no problem with any type of sexuality. You need to accept it or get over it because it's natural.



  36. 136

    MADONNA AND BRIT KISS WAS SUPER HOT.
    and Madonna is like that all the time.we love that.thats why she still so popular.she never faked,she was always like that, but MANY MADONNA VIDEOS WERE CENSURED BY MTV CAUSE THEY WERE TOO HOT 4 MTV,so what.maye adams performances were too hot for tv



  37. 137

    Uh, because two guys kissing is horrific and two girls kissing is AWESOME!



  38. 138

    Adam looked like fat Elvia on speed–he had no sex appeal–and while he was being all tough–he was singing like a girl–it was a nightmare–I will not be watching him again



  39. 139

    Re: luii – you shut the fuck up. get off the website if its so annoying, go back to www.trendyhipsters.org



  40. 140

    When the Britney and Madonna thing happened it was a big deal as well.. but the blurring thing is stupid..



  41. 141

    Re: Fuddawudda – Madonna is straight???OK that shows how much u know



  42. 142

    It will all be over soon and everyone will be created equal, man or woman. this is disturbing. How could they do this?



  43. 143

    what a bunch of dicks -.-



  44. 144

    adam kiss was more like madonna sex book.its was censured too,but madonna and brit kiss was hot and not like they were eating each other like adam. when madonna did very provocative things it wasnt showend on tv too



  45. 145

    I'll give you this one. My issue with the whole thing is that we're in a time where we're fighting for gay rights, gay marriage, the overturn on Prop 8, etc., trying to show that committed gay couples should have the same rights as straight couples. That we're trying to dispel negative stereotypes, and there are guys like Adam Lambert just reinforcing these stereotypes. The opposition will see this and say "See, this is why we can't treat gay people as humans, because all gay people will do is go on tv and throw peoples faces in their crotch." As a supporter of gay rights, and an ally of glbt people and causes, this angers me because I feel like it's setting the cause back. It's giving conservative America more fuel for their fire. And people were mad about the Britney/Madonna thing too, but that was a long time ago. There's no point in censoring it as everyone's seen it. I don't have an issue with them showing the kiss on TV, but I do have an issue with Adam Lambert setting people back by giving conservative America what they want - more reason to hate gay people.



  46. 146

    TWO GUYS TOGETHER IS JUST PLAIN GROSS, IT ALWAYS WILL BE, IT'S A DOUBLE STANDARD. GET OVER IT.



  47. 147

    Because watching 2 guys kissing disgusts people.
    Get over it.



  48. 148

    complete bullshit! WTF??? wake up america!



  49. 149

    dude, madonna and brittney are HOT! girl on girl making out is hot! adam lame-bert sucks and therefore justifies the double standard, no one wants to see a no name wannabe making out with some dude, but EVERYONE, INCLUDING YOURSELF would love to see madonna and britney make out over and over. peace.



  50. 150

    Re: Meekan – So u mean Madonna doesnt have any gay tendencies…come on get over it



  51. 151

    I think the kiss with Adam and the guy could be viewed as somewhat agressive and non-consentual. The way he grabbed his neck was really rough and you could tell the keyboard guy was not expecting it nor could he consent to that at the moment. I didn't like it for that reason.



  52. 152

    Re: Shayla R Cakes – right on! you got this absolutely right!



  53. 153

    Ok, the oral sex thing- kinda over the top for network tv…. the kisss? Who cares? Everyone knows hes gay- get over it. He just shocked them, theyve never seen that before. People will move on eventually and not be so shocked the next time.



  54. 154

    Re: ChemicallyRoz – Madonna does have gay tendencies get over it



  55. 155

    Ok, that looks totally photoshopped. Exact time AND temperature and only part of the red bar is across the bottom? Something doesn't add up. I didn't watch it though so Idk. Happy Thanksgiving to all!



  56. 156

    Perez is a hetero-phobe!!!!!!



  57. 157

    It is clear to me that you are gay nobody want to see two "man" kissing and also what do you compere madonna and britney with the stupid nobody lamber fuck you perez just shut your hole



  58. 158

    Re: Shayla R Cakes – EXACTLY.



  59. 159

    adam sounded and did horrible. i wish they would have just blocked out his entire performance! he sounded awful and looked ridiculous. i don't care who he's kissing, that was just a horrible performance.



  60. 160

    FUCK THIS BULLSHIT

  61. deni says – reply to this


    161

    Madonna and Britney's kiss can't even be compared to Glamberts kiss. For one, Madonna and Britney are NOT gay, so no one took it seriously. And besides, there was a lot of talk and controversy about that kiss!



  62. 162

    The difference is i would never let a child watch MTV awards but i would let them watch AMA. Regardless of whether it was two guys or a guy and a girl, i would be horrified if my kids saw that.

  63. deni says – reply to this


    163

    Re: Melley – Well said! I applaud you!



  64. 164

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – oh well then lets fix your PERSONAL PROBLEM. Stop looking at his site!



  65. 165

    Dude, that is totally fucked up! Two women kissing is a (straight, depending on the girls maybe sometimes gay?) male pornographic fantasy but two men, well that's just too taboo for America! It's ok to air the suicide of a man after he leaves his dog to die in a burning truck during afternoon cartoons (LA, circa late '90s) but god forbid the kids of America get the "wrong" idea about sexuality while watching a musical performance. It's things like this plus a lack of public healthcare that make me want to move to Europe or the UK or even Canada! Seriously, Canada would be better than this shit. I could learn to like maple syrup and Alanis…



  66. 166

    IT'S NOT ABOUT THE KISS MORONS!!!! Get off Perez's band wagon you mindless sheep and WAKE UP!! I'm completely pissed off at Adam Lambert right now but the kiss is the least of my concerns. Seeing two people kiss, regardless of sex is hardly what I'd call shocking…. same goes for Madonna and Britney… a kiss is just a kiss as long as the camera isn't zoomed into tongue action.
    BUT, having to watch simulated oral sex, see a woman being whippped and dragged by her leg and see a womans crotch being fingered on prime time tv FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES TO VIEW is beyond inappropriate !!!!!!!



  67. 167

    CBS and all the biased media sh-t channels should just get brain implants. Homophobia is an ugly disgusting thing. Why should we care about what happens behind closed doors? I tell you, people are so bigoted nowadays. Ugh.



  68. 168

    Re: JiLLianKyLe – If you don't like Perez, why are you here? LOL.



  69. 169

    Re: talknerdytome – THANK YOU!!! Why can't other people follow the post…it is about CBS today blurring one picture and not the other, not his performance at the AMA's.



  70. 170

    But do we need to remind ourselves that Shakira was humping air? Don't say that Adam was overtly sexual, because so was Shakira. As she always is. Ugh, you sill people make me laugh.

  71. Rynne says – reply to this


    171

    This is really wrong. Frankly, I don't want to see people kiss during their performances no matter what their sexuality, gay or straight. But to make it okay for women to kiss but not men is wrong because it is homophobic AND sexist because it is objectifying women.



  72. 172

    I think what you're missing is the type of kiss.. the Madonna and Britney thing wasn't them shoving tongues down each other's throats… but again, I don't think the problem was with the kissing, but the blatant porno that he was trying to put on… It was all just ridiculous and a ploy to generate press and distract from the fact that his voice was terrible, and he couldn't hit a note to save his life.



  73. 173

    Re: didntneedtoseethat – Are you serious? Madonna's done waaaaaaaay worst than that. LOL. You are funny.
    ****
    Back to the subject. Again, Madonna and Britney are HOTT. Adam Lambert is not.



  74. 174

    *** How is this okay??????? ***

    Because seeing 2 chicks make out is hot, and seeing 2 guys make out is not?



  75. 175

    First,I am Christian and a mother who has Many gay friends whom I love very dearly ..here's my two cents. The problem I have with the whole thing is this: lewd acts are lewd acts! I don't care who is doing it, it shouldn't be shown on family stations. Adult content should be kept on paid cable channels, away from children. Gay or straight I don't want to see oral sex simulations and don't appreciate my children being subject to it either. Also, what he did was so over the top and inappropriate for family tv that he gives gays a bad image. It's hard enough for the gay community as it is, why would you want someone so disrespectful of others who obviously has no class to represent you. The World loves Sir Elton John, Wanda Sykes and Ellen among many others…maybe Mr.Lambert could take a few pointers from them.



  76. 176

    WOW…that is NOT OK…

    I wasn't aware of this till now. We should do something about that. A line has been crossed now.



  77. 177

    so unfair like all NON rights for gays. I'm so sick of this country's double standard and prudes. Hope Adam keeps on pushing what is normal in any female or male perference. I loved his performance and I'm straight and 56 female so there middle America, sit on it and spin.



  78. 178

    Don't be so quick to condemn CBS…..they showed the footage that they had…..edited by ABC……the same as we're seeing now….isn't that the point?



  79. 179

    I wrote to CBS to complaint about their unfair position, i ask to apologies or i will never watch CBS again, and i will. Everyone should see their discrimination and stand up and really do something. If we don't, everything will stay the same.

    At first i wasn't shock by the reaction of people or tv stations. I think that was not right from Adam to what he did as much as it was not right from Madonna or Janet. When u know millions of poeple 's of all religions and accross the world whatching, we have to be respecfull, in both way.

    I am gay and i will not kiss my bf in front of everyone, that is not the way we have to fight for gay rights.

    But in this case, it's obvious that they prefer to see 2 girls that 2 boys wich is DISCRIMINATION.

    PEREZ, PLEASE DON'T LET THEM DO THIS (I'M TALKING ABOUT TV STATIONS). U HAVE A VOICE TROUGH YOUR SITE AND YOU ARE A PUBLIC PERSON.



  80. 180

    Re: cdiddy – cdiddy–you're from a hick town aren't you?



  81. 181

    In my opinion Perez, It was not ABOUT the kiss it was the whole off key forced lame juvenile performance!! He himself admitted he did not sing well, but was caught up in the moment, ( so he SHOUTS! instead of singing) and by the way black nail polish on "guys" went out a long time ago. Pleeeeese enough.



  82. 182

    it's not ok! TOTALLY RIDICULOUS!



  83. 183

    i think it's unfair… when 2 guys are kissing, they're probably gay; seeing 2 girls kissing, chances are they're faking it for the 'shock value'. real gay scares the christians! still, maybe his performance was to much for kids/parents. i don't want to be explaining sex to my kid yet, gay or straight.



  84. 184

    IS KISSING OBSENE IN THE US???????



  85. 185

    shut the fcck up perez, you know darn right that Adam lambert performance was ridiculous disgusting…dont compare his performance to britney and madonna, these girls have class. You and Adam have no class. SO STOP advertising him, his career his over..just like yours



  86. 186

    I AGREE… DIS HAS BEEN MY ARGUMENT SINCE DA COMPLAINTS STARTED… IF ITS OK FOR MADONNA 2 KISS NOT ONLY BRITNEY BUT X-TINA AS WELL.. I DONT C NE WRONG IN WUT ADAM DID… HES A PERFORMER…UR NOT FORCED TO WATCH HIS PERFORMANCES NOR ARE UR CHILDREN… U DONT LIKE HIM DERES A BUTTON ON UR REMOTE DAT ALLOWS U TO CHANGE DA CHANNELS YOU IGNORAT CLOSE MINDED PIGZ…



  87. 187

    Re: luii – Yeah.. its getting right annoying.



  88. 188

    I wonder if he was kissing a famous male would people be offended…or perhaps the fact we all know Brit and Madonna are not gay, that that made it okay to show??? Also, why can't an artist just be who he is??? Why is everyone trying to get him to not be who he is???



  89. 189

    I think the fact that he was simulating a blow job in his performance on live TV was a really stupid disgusting thing to do but why the hell would they sensor them kissing, it's rediculous. Since when can two people not kiss on TV first of all, and second of all the people that create double standards like this are the reason he thinks its okay to do oral on stage. He said it himself, he wasn't sorry because there is a double standard!

  90. Sezzy says – reply to this


    190

    face it, we're not ready for 2 dudes makin out on a family channel. and who the hell does glambert think he is, like hes gonna be the guy to champion gay rights? just like tila tequila is gonna champion domestic abuse. huzzah!



  91. 191

    this is bullshit. nothing is going to change unless they start showing reality. guys kissing happens everyday, everywhere, all the time. get with it CBS and stop discriminating…………enough with straight guys running the show.



  92. 192

    The face to the crotch I can understand blocking. but the kiss? Jeez people it's 2009!



  93. 193

    That is beyond mess up!



  94. 194

    That is really stupid! There is no difference in a woman-woman kiss and a man-man kiss.



  95. 195

    Re: tigrrrlilly – Tigerlily?? What makes you assume that all the "right-wing" homophobes are OLD?? I am 58, love and support Adam and am definitely NOT a homophobe! So do your homework GF! The Babby Boomer generation was one on the wildest and most liberal generation EVER! Recently, on the news, they showed Sarah Palin arriving for her book tour and most of the people screaming for her were YOUNG people, some not even old enough to vote! THOSE people are YOUR generation, my dear unenlightened one.So please, don't go painting MY generation with your little brush.I wish ALL the right-wingers would foke off and die, young and old.And Adam, our fierce warrior? ROCK ON! XD



  96. 196

    It's because that Glamberwhateverthefuckyoucallhim is DIS-GUST-ING! Maybe if he wasn't so FREAKISHLY ugly then everyone might have reacted differently. Get over it Perez. In watching the AMAs I turned the channel everytime they put his ugly mug on tv.



  97. 197

    it's ok because (as we all know from ever attending a frat party that) girls who kiss girls do it for attention and guys who kiss guys do it because they're homosexuals.



  98. 198

    Well at least they demonstrated, vividly, exactly the double standard that BB was talking about! So, thumbs down on blurring the kiss, but kudos for making this morning's Early Show a 2 hour Adam Lambert show!



  99. 199

    i was thinking the same thing! this whole thing is pissing me off! there's nothing anyone can do about it now! fuck CBS and ABC!



  100. 200

    Not right at all. This just proves the point further.
