A lot of music performances and videos include sexually suggestive content but was this just too explicit for a prime time audience? Is it only controversial because he’s openly gay? Dylan Brown thinks ‘it was a little too gay for most’.
Or is it simply because he’s a man? He said “Female pop artists have been doing things provocative like that for years, and the fact that I’m a male… could be a problem.” Dognail agrees, asking if anyone complained when Janet Jackson performed with sexually graphic dance moves at the same event?
The show was edited before being shown later on the west coast of the USA, which Adam claimed was discrimination.
Is it ok for male gay artists to be as sexually daring in their performances as female or heterosexual males? Should he be allowed complete artistic freedom or should he be censored if he offends people?
