Adam Lambert sparks debate in Singapore

People in Singapore are getting involved in petitions over whether pop singer Adam Lambert he is too sexy to be allowed to perform at the city-state’s largest New Year’s eve concert.

The petition against Lambert, whose American Music Awards performance in 2009 caused controversy, was addressed to concert organizer Mediacorp and the government.

It has gathered over 16,000 signatures so far, to back its case that a performance by the openly gay singer did not align with values in Singapore, where sex between men is illegal.

Another petition was formed backing the performance and has now reached 19,000 signatures.

The State TV company Mediacorp maintained that Lambert will still perform and said that the televised concert would be suitable for family audiences.
