Adam Lambert News: Singer Claims That There Are 'Backwards Attitudes In The US'

Adam Lambert says the outraged response to a controversial awards show performance came from conservative attitudes.

More than 1,500 people complained after the For Your Entertainment singer kissed a male band member during an appearance at the American Music Awards ceremony in November, with subsequent talkshow appearances cancelled by the networks concerned.

Speaking before his debut album is released in the UK, the singer said the reaction to his performance confirmed that there remain “a lot of backwards attitudes in the US”.
