Adam Lambert The Greatest PR Campaign Ever To Coincide With An Album Release?

This year’s American Idol runner-up the very talented Adam Lambert has been generating publicity since his time on the show, not just because of his prodigioius singing and performance skills but because he is gay and is not hiding it.

Personally I don’t think it is an issue or anything that his sexuality should be attracting much publicity except if he was sleeping with George Clooney.

But after a ‘risque’ performance (see above picture) at the American Music Awards (AMA) the other night has meant controversy has carried on for days in the US.

Adam Lambert has said there is a double standard on TV, as the girl on girl kiss that Madonna and Britany did at the same show a few year’s prior.

He said on The Early Show Adam Lambert said, “I think that if it had been a female pop performer doing the moves that were on the stage, I don’t think there would be nearly as much of an outrage. At all. Like I said, there were other performers doing risque things. I think it’s because I’m a gay male, and people haven’t seen that before.”

All this in the month when he has released his first album, the sales must be going stratospheric.
