Adam Lambert, Calm Down…

So the outrage has begun over the censoring of Adam Lambert’s male/male kiss during his performance at last night’s American Music Awards.  My feeling is in the grand scheme of things, who gives a shit?

Adam told Access Hollywood that he felt it was discriminatory and that it wasn’t really a big deal.  My thing is, Janet Jackson showed titty on live tv at the Super Bowl and she was shunned by award shows and tv shows for countless months until that shit blew over.  Everyone in America has seen a titty, gay and straight, but her shit caused extreme outrage!  So, why is Adam Lambert exempt?  Janet Jackson is an ICON in music and she was shunned like she had cold sores all over her top lip.  Adam hasn’t even dropped an album yet.  So he damn sure can’t be exempt. 

Adam, pull up your g-string, fix your guy liner and brush it off like a true entertainer would do.  Everything does not have to be about a political message!  Give the network the finger by moving Britney Spears Baby One More Time units the week your album drops!

Beyonce vs. The Jackson Klan

Hollywood & Vine hadn’t planned to discuss this Beyonce vs. Janet foolishness, but since nobody understands what Bey was saying, we gotta help out.

During an interview for the January 2009 issue of Elle Magazine, this is what Beyonce had to say:

“I grew up upper class. Private school. My dad had a Jaguar. We’re African-American and we work together as a family, so people assume we’re like The Jacksons. But I didn’t have parents using me to get out of a bad situation.”

Now fools have taken the above and called it Beyonce talkin shit about Janet.  H&V don’t agree.  We know the truth hurts, but Bey was on point in her statement.  Everyone who halfway knows about the Jackson 5 knows that Joe’s crazy ass worked those boys like dogs and used them to get the family up outta Gary, Indiana.  She didn’t say anything about Janet.  Now, word is that Janet is all pissy and plans to confront Bey next time she sees her.  If that’s the case, Janet should put that energy toward accepting that her career is over!
