Shock and Raw

ABC really deserves some grief for the Adam Lambert performance last night during the American Music Awards: 

the “American Idol” glam rocker who sang his new song “For Your Entertainment” on Sunday’s show with an elaborate, S&M-themed production. Lambert fondled a dancer, led another around on a leash, had a dancer briefly stick his head in Lambert’s crotch and kissed a man.

I’ll confess, too, that I couldn’t bring myself to link to the amazingly critical SNL opening skit on Obama’s China trip this morning after watching Lambert. Just a little too much crude for one weekend.
