Adam Lambert has agreed to tone down the Glam Nation concert, headed to Malaysia on Thursday. There have been calls by the Pan Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) to cancel the show, because they feel he is promoting gay culture in a mainly Muslim country.
Adam has responded with tweets a few hours ago:
While I don’t believe that my glamnation tour is in any way offensive I have agreed to make a few minor adjustments out of respect for the Malaysian government. Looking forward to a fun show.
Does my show “promote the gay lifestyle”? It promotes living ANY lifestyle that includes the freedom to seek love and intimacy. Gay, straight, bi, young or old. It’s all inclusive.
plus, what’s THE gay lifestyle? There isnt just one. There are so many different kinds of gay people. We have a variety of different lifestyles. There’s not only one lifestyle lived by straight folks. Generalizing….
Out of respect, I won’t go on about how another country should not be the way they are. We have to respect international differences. I just know where I won’t be going on vacation! I do feel sorry for the fans. They’re missing one hell of a show!
