"I'm not a babysitter, I'm a performer," Lambert told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show on Tuesday (November 24). "I don't feel I owe anyone an apology for anything. I performed, it was late-night TV, I did something that female performers have been doing for years, no different. It's just the fact that I'm me and it's a little different for people. It's really not that big of a deal.
"I think a mountain has been made out of a molehill," he continued. "It's choreography — we were dancing. The sexuality of it kind of got a little more extreme when I got up onstage," he said. "I think the adrenaline kind of took me over and I admit it, and I'm proud of the fact that I did get a little carried away."
In the interview he noted that he felt his performance wasn't any racier than ones by
"I'm a sexual person, and maybe people didn't see that on 'American Idol,' " he added. "But now they do."
As for the canned "Good Morning America" performance, which has now been rescheduled for CBS' "The Early Show," he understands, but doesn't agree. "Obviously I respect their decision — they gotta do what they gotta do. It's too bad — I think there were a lot of fans who were excited to come see me," he said. "They probably had a lot of pressure coming at them from certain people who weren't happy about it. I respect their decision — I don't necessarily agree with it, but they need to do what they need to do."
