Adam Lambert Reveals That ABC Threatened Him With A Lawsuit After He Kissed Another Man During The 2009 American Music Awards
The common double standard for same-sex kissing goes like this: Two women? “YES!” Two men? “Get that gay ass shit off my TV…What about the children???” Whatever hypocrites. Luckily we’ve moved the needle of tolerance a few inches forward with Lil Nas X giving Satan lap dances and kissing whoever he wants to during his performances. But back in 2009, American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert bucked against the system by tonguing down one of his male band members during his performance at the American Music Awards. And it was a move so shocking that ABC threatened to sue him.
Before last night’s American Music Awards (or as many refer to it as, “That show’s still on?”) even began there was some Chris Brown-related drama. Chris was supposed to perform in a tribute to Michael Jackson but the whole thing was tossed into the dumpster at the last minute for reasons unknown. Maybe one of the reasons was that executives got a clue and realized Chris Brown singing Beat It on their stage might not be the best look. Even though Chris’ performance was canceled, it wasn’t a Chris Brown-free night at the AMAs. He won an award and the audience responded by booing Chris Brown for being Chris Brown. Chris wasn’t there to flip them off, but thankfully for him, Kelly Rowland was there to defend poor little Chris Brown.
Dove Cameron Dedicates Her Best New Artist AMA To The Queer Community After The Colorado Springs Gay Club Shooting
On Saturday night, a psychopath opened fire inside the Club Q nightclub in Colorado Springs, CO, leaving five people dead and at least 25 injured. And while some (see: Machine Gun Kelly) used their AMAs acceptance speech to question whether the US really landed on the moon or not, Dove, who came out as queer last year, decided to use her speech to show support for the LGBTQ+ community.
New Edition And New Kids On The Block Faced Off In A Battle Of The Boy Bands At Last Night’s American Music Awards
The 2021 American Music Awards happened last night and was hosted by Cardi B, who I’m amazed didn’t reveal another pregnancy because she loves to do that. But she did crack jokes and managed to screech “My underarms itch!” in her opening monologue, so that happened. But more importantly, there was music at the American Music Awards (shocking) and we were treated to a plethora of acts. Including a reunion-slash-battle between two classic boy bands, New Kids On The Block and New Edition.
Jennifer Lopez Got Accused Of Stealing Beyoncé’s Entire Vibe For Her American Music Awards Performance
The American Music Awards saw celebrities descend on the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles to sing and dance (and lip-sync) their hearts out. It was nice to see things returning to normal as the celebrities were actually in the same room together (albeit spaced out insanely among the huge venue). And also like normal, they were ripping each other off. Jennifer Lopez found herself to be in the hot seat and was the controversy of the evening over her potential thievery of aesthetics from one Beyoncé Knowles-Carter. BeyHive assemble to defend your Queen. And I’m talking about the actual bees!
The American Music Awards happened last night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, even though coronavirus numbers continue to spike and Southern California is under a curfew. But the organizers behind the AMAs claim they followed all guidelines. Well, if they’re putting the only people who matter in the world–AKA rich celebrities–in a room together during a pandemic, you know that it’s got all the bases covered. But we’re not here to talk about their health precautions, we’re here to drag their fashion!
