Adam Lambert: Malaysia compromise was worth it

Malaysian Muslim students hold up placards to protest against U.S. glam rocker Adam Lambert's concert outside its venue in Kuala Lumpur October 14, 2010. Lambert said his Malaysian concert on Thursday would reflect his sexuality despite Islamist anger over his show, which has been accused of promoting gay culture. To match Reuters Life!

Adam Lambert promised to tone down his show for the Malaysia leg of his tour – where homosexual acts are a criminal offence.

The openly gay singer was greeted by protesters and riot police – although the protest was peaceful.

Adam, who is known for his kissy displays, said of the show: “I’m just refraining from making one little kiss, I don’t think it’s that big of a deal.”

“As much as I hate to compromise any time, it’s more important to me to bring the people of Malaysia my show [and] to thank them for all the support they have shown me.”

“So to make that slight compromise, I’d say it’s worth it.” Adam added.
