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