They don't seem to be showing clips of the AMAs or anything- I guess that's a good thing. They are having quite an earnest talk, tho.

Hey guys, Libracats and I didn't get in. :'( But we tried. :D We literally stood on the sidewalk for 3 hours. The security wouldn't even let us sit inside the parking structure because it was "private" property. We even went to the door of the studio and begged the security guy. He closed the door on us. :(
Lori, thank you sooooooo much for contacting Entermediamusic for us. Too bad she didn't make it. It was all good though. I heard WWFM on KISSFM in LA on the way home, so not all is lost. :P
ETA: And oh, we saw Tommy boy, we chased him down a little and Libracats got a five second vid of him. Haha, the security person kicked us out right away.

Sorry if this has already been posted, from Eonline:
Adam Lambert: Maybe AMAs Performance "Wasn't the Best First Impression"
Adam Lambert has been having second thoughts.
After initially writing off his erotically charged appearance at the 2009 American Music Awards as envelope-pushing showmanship, the singer is now wondering whether his performance was more for his entertainment than for yours.
"It was maybe a little too far," the 27-year-old artist admitted during a sit-down with The Ellen DeGeneres Show that airs Tuesday.
"I think in hindsight I look back on it and I go, 'OK, maybe that wasn't the best first impression to make again, the first second impression.' I mean, I had fun up there, I had a good time, my dancers had fun and the band had fun.
"I respect people and feel like people walked away from that feeling disrespected. I would never intend to disrespect anybody. So that was not my intention."
But count DeGeneres among those who believes there's a double standard on TV when it comes to male vs. female sexuality.
"My whole thing is I feel like if you're offended by a show of sexuality on stage, then you should be offended by all shows of sexuality. It should be all forms," the incoming American Idol judge said.
"I think, too, people aren't used to seeing gay man portrayed that way on TV," Lambert agreed. "The gay male image in the media tends to be very clique and safe...I was putting on a character, putting on a persona being this kind of rock star, kind of dangerous kind of guy.
"After seeing one of my favorites, Lady Gaga, tear it apart on stage...She was incredible. I don't know, something came over me and got caught up in the moment and maybe went a little too far."
And perhaps the folks at home just weren't ready to see Adam Lambert's poker face.
Lambert's dad suggested that an apology might be in order, the singer said. But he ultimately disagreed with his pops.
"I was like, 'You know, Dad, I don't feel like I did anything wrong.' It just wasn't maybe the right judgement call. It's a taste thing more than an obscenity thing. I think it's just a taste level."
And he was, in fact, bummed about Good Morning America canceling his scheduled appearance three days after the AMAs.
"I think ABC was a little bit mad at me," Lambert said.
"I don't blame them. I got carried away...They gave me a great opportunity to close the AMAs and I would never want to smack that gift horse in the mouth. I think they were taking a leap of faith having me do that and it unfortunately it didn't work out as we all thought it would."
Hence the "new direction" he's going in, starting with his performance of "Whataya Want From Me" on Ellen.
"Ellen:airing 2m.Singing 'whatya want from me'!," the singer tweeted today. "AMA performance was a one time event. Goin in a new direction now. Focus back on the music...Don't worry friends: I'm still gonna be me. Always. W/o appologies. Just gonna experiment differently w how I present myself...I'm learning. :)"
OK, we think the poor guy has humbled himself enough. On with the show!

:'( :'( :'( :'(
Omg, I feel so bad for him. That Eonline article got me emotional. :'( Adam is right for not apologizing. Why are people stomping on his pride like this, trying to beat his wild side out of him. Screw them all, that's who Adam is. He should always be unapologetically himself, and if that means being sexual onstage, then whatever! It's his thing. It's also how a lot of other artists express themselves. Give him a break. ABC sucks so bad. I don't think Adam should feel bad. I don't think his performance was wrong at all. It's true that he can focus more on the vocals, but it's all a balance. I'm sure he can find a way to sound good but to still be sexual, just like he did on the Idol tour. There's no need for an apology, and there's no need to explore other directions.
There's only one way to go, and it's to continue being the wild performer that he is.
