Disney’s reaction to the outrageous stage theatrics of Adam Lambert? Make sure it never happens again.
Anne Sweeney, head of television at Disney-owned ABC, responded to Lambert-gate at the Reuters Media Summit on Monday, saying the family-friendly company will take stricter measures in reviewing performances before they go live. One way to do that would be to sign contracts with artists to make sure their on-air performances do not divert from rehearsals (and hence, sex up the live broadcast).
If you where hiding under a rock: Lambert, who is openly gay, simulated oral sex on stage while performing his new single “For Your Entertainment.” He also kissed a man and flipped off the audience.
(Sidenote: Remember when Miley Cyrus danced on a pole at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards? FOX did nothing. Oh wait, it’s FOX).
