Lambert 'Respects' Morning Tv Show Axe

AMERICAN IDOL star ADAM LAMBERT "respects" U.S. TV bosses' decision to scrap his performance on a national breakfast show following his outrageous American Music Awards finale.
The openly gay singer caused controversy at the prizegiving on Sunday (22Nov09) in Los Angeles when he closed the show with a risque rendition of his debut single For Your Entertainment, locking lips with his male keyboard player and performing over-the-top sexually-charged routines with back-up dancers.
Network bosses at ABC, who aired the event in America, were flooded with 1,500 complaints from angry viewers and now Lambert's daring set has cost him a slot on Good Morning America (GMA) on Wednesday (25Nov09).
Speaking out about the axed show, Lambert admits he can understand why executives would be concerned.
He says, "It's really not that big of a deal. I'm not a babysitter, I'm a performer... Obviously I respect their decision, they gotta do what they gotta do. It's too bad, I think there were a lot of fans who were excited to come see me.
"They (executives) probably had a lot of pressure coming at them from certain people who weren't happy about it. I respect their decision. I don't necessarily agree with it."
