Adam Lambert on 'The Early Show' -- no apologies, and a visit from Mom [VIDEO]

AdamOK Adam Lambert appeared on CBS' "The Early Show" today -- and he brought his mom. 

But he didn't bring along any apologies:

"I admit I did get carried away, but I don't see anything wrong with it," he said. "I do see how people got offended and that was not my intention. My intention was to interpret the lyrics of my song and have a good time with it."

Leila Lambert said she was "a little taken aback"  by her son's American Music Awards performance, but that she went with the flow. Not as if it's the first time her son's music career has had her on the edge of her seat.

The Ministry has a huge soft spot for moms -- and we'd like to note that our mom always has our back too.

And about the performance, in detail? Adam breaks it down with MTV, explaining which moments were "in the moment":

"During rehearsal, I grab him by the hair and kind of just looked at him," he told MTV about how he came to kiss keyboard player Tommy Ratliff, adding that Ratliff isn't married, but is definitely straight. "He just, I guess, didn't mind getting kissed in the name of entertainment on stage."

Below, check out video of Adam Lambert backstage with Adam "the audience guy" Wurzel -- where it's all about Thanksgiving.

Kudos to CBS... but it bothers me that they blurred the kiss... I can see the face in crotch, but isn't a kiss rated G on TV, or is that only if it is a man and women (or two women)? They didn't blur the Britney/Madonna kiss, what's up with that? ...and I love how people write "I have no problem with gays... just don't shove it in my face". But it is okay to shove a heterosexual kiss in your face, right??? Sort of like, "I'm not prejudiced, some of my best friends are black... just don't move next door." I live in Boystown and am proud to say that my children don't blink when they see two men holding hands or kissing, as well it should be. Love ya Adam... you go!!!!!

As a fan, I don't need or want an apology. All I need is to hear Adam sing just like this. That is enough.

Gays -- and I’m the Director of The Wilde Society – seem to be obsessed with the sexual element in their relationships. Adam Lambert is a great guy, whose singing can get screechy now and then, who didn’t need to mock sexuality, which is a nice corollary to human existence. Sex, for the procreation of the race, can be beautiful, but when seen overtly, it is a bestial thing, ugly in its practice. A kiss is nice, with whomever, and can be a tender sign of affection, but the oral copulation that Adam simulated, is such a private gesture – or should be – that to mimic it on stage, in front of a TV audience of many kinds of persons some sexually attuned, some not, was boorish. I like Lambert. I like his (quiet) singing. And he did make waves, which is always fun, for the adventurous. But capping off the Music Award show with a feigned gay encounter, made me wish to see a reprieve of Taylor Swift or even Lady Ga Ga (who makes waves that don’t drown her audience in Freudian angst – or horror).

Adam shouldn't have to apologize. The kiss shouldn't have been blurred, that was wrong. It was also wrong of the CBS lady to keep badgering Adam for an apology, get over it lady. And so Adam mashed the face of the dancer into his mid section. Check it out again that isn't low enough for "oral sex" anyhow. People get real. A kiss is a kiss and yes we've seen it on tv during the same venue hours all ready so get off the high horse. You can not say simulated oral sex was offensive if no one got mad when Janet Jackson and Alice Keys did it on the same show in the same night on during the same venue...EVEN BEFORE Adam and not one single complaint went in for them doing it? I'm a huge fan of multiple singers but the same thing needs to be applied to all of them. You can not discriminate against Adam when you allow Janet Jackson and Alicia Keys to get away with oral sex girations during their performances.
