'American Idol' Adam Lambert's AMAs performance not so scandalous
Former "American Idol" star Adam Lambert seemed determined to outdo American Music Awards opener Janet Jackson. Apparently, though, acting like a boob doesn't compare to baring one.
Despite a closing performance that featured man-on-man smooching, a simulated sex act and one unplanned tumble, ABC tells USA Today the network only received around 1,500 complaints. CBS, meanwhile, reportedly received more than half a million complaints when Janet's breast was accidentally revealed during a Super Bowl halftime performance a.k.a. "Nipplegate."
Lambert has said his same-sex kiss wasn't planned, and that his, uh, exuberant performance was the result of an adrenaline surge.
