panda goes wheee!

A point of inherent sexism in the system. Definitely worth contemplating.


For his first televised performance since the Season Eight finale of the American Idol, Adam Lambert pulled out all the stops and his risqué rendition of “For Your Entertainment” stunned the audience at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theatre and the millions watching the American Music Awards live on ABC. Lambert delivered a “sexy” performance as he closed the live show with simulated oral sex from a male backup dancer, a brief make-out session with his male keyboardist and a giant mirrored prop so the audience could see the looks on their own shocked faces. Apparently producers weren’t informed about the guy-on-guy kiss in advance, and after the show, Lambert told Rolling Stone the musician he kissed is a straight man. Lambert also said if ABC decides to cut any parts of his performance for the West Coast rebroadcast, it would amount to “discrimination.” “Female performers have been doing this for years — pushing the envelope about sexuality — and the minute a man does it, everybody freaks out. We’re in 2009; it’s time to take risks, be a little more brave, time to open people’s eyes and if it offends them, then maybe I’m not for them. My goal was not to piss people off, it was to promote freedom of expression and artistic freedom,” said Lambert. (via Carnal Nation)
