(Newser) – Adam Lambert has no plans to apologize for his guy-kissing, crotch-thrusting American Music Awards performance. “I’m not a babysitter, I’m a performer,” he tells the Early Show.
"I think it's up to the parents to discern what their child's watching on television. It was almost 11 at night. I did get carried away, but I don’t see anything wrong with it.” He does have one regret, saying that if he had it to do over again, “I would sing it a little better.”

Lambert’s performance included another controversial moment that was missed by many: He flipped off the camera. “You know, the finger was to the people that have been criticizing me. The finger was to the people who doubt me,” he tells MTV. “The finger was to the people that were about to censor me. The finger was not to fans or people who support me at all, by any means.”
