Elisabeth Hasselbeck Attacks 'Sexually Aggressive' Adam Lambert: 'Smarten Up, and Sing'


The ladies of The View chatted about Adam Lambert's controversial performance at the American Music Awards, which drew 1,500 complaints.

Seethed Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who was apparently hitting the speed dial button to ABC on Sunday night: "It seemed to be a sexual aggression that came across in the performance. Now, does anyone know what song he sang? Does anyone remember what he sounded like? Because, let me tell you this. This is the mistake Adam Lambert will make time and time again. We will not remember him as a performer or someone with a voice if he continues to do things like this. So smarten up, and sing."

  1. Sounds like when the wingnuts were tellin' the Dixie Chicks to "Shut up and sing."

  2. Glad to see Hasselbeck bringing the puritan look back. Matches her uptight repug attitudes

  3. Anything that irritates Elisabeth Hasselbeck is OK in my book. Even it's off pitch.

  6. Elisabeth Hasselbeck is talking about Adam Lambert, but I promise you... Adam Lambert is not talking about Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

  7. Hasselbeck's 15 minutes are up. She's a closed-minded prude who does NOT speak for any majority in this country (thank god).

  8. I hope Joy shot her one of her infamous "why the fuck are you even here" looks.

    anything that Elisabeth hates, I will learn to love. and for me, it'll be tough to love Adam's singing. eeeeks.

  9. Who is . . . was Elizabeth Hasselbeck before The View? A Survivor contestant. What talent does she have,apart from having a big mouth, what insight into the music industry that makes her uniquely qualified to advise Adam Lambert on how he ought to perform or conduct his career?

    I used to love The View when Rosie was there to show what a dumb "Cnt" Elizabeth is.

  10. She sounds just like nearly every one of the Towleroad commenters on the morning after Adam's performance.

  11. What about the sexually aggressive Shakira, etc.? Sexually suggestive musicians have been around for how long?

    Posted by: HowardB | Nov 24, 2009 10:18:33 AM

  12. YES we remember the song....we were waiting for this performance all night long!!!!
    You don't remember it because you were hypnotized by the sex!!! learned something new!

  13. Hasselback is an over-paid,under-read,under-fed idiot!What does she bring to the table other than retrograde politics,and uninformed commentary?

    Posted by: robert | Nov 24, 2009 10:34:49 AM

  14. OMG!! 1,500 complaints out of 14 million viewers. That would only be like 1% if the viewing audience was only about 140,000.

    What percent is 1500 of 14 million? I am not going to bust out my calculator. Suffice it to say that it is yet another example of homophoebes and right-wing fringe nuts wanting to project their values and opinions on others.

    How about this? Instead of blaming Adam Lambert's performance at the AMA's, or gays for the disintegration of the family, why don't the families boasting that secret and powerful ingredient of one man and one woman turn their TV's off, bust out the board games and spend some real time with their kids?

  15. I would really like to hear what Goody Hasselbeck had to say about the EXTREMELY inappropriate pole dance that Miley did a couple of weeks ago at her awards show (in front of an equally inappropriately beaming father I might add) comment? Really? But because Adam Lambert happens to be a sodomite, her hackles are now raised....pathetic.

    Posted by: KenClark | Nov 24, 2009 10:38:06 AM

  16. She's just a tired old prude, but that doesn't make Lambert a better performer. God that was bad.

    Posted by: John | Nov 24, 2009 10:38:13 AM

  17. No!!! Elisabeth is RIGHT!!! Lambert should take a cue from her friend, Miss Prejean, and hold himself up as an example of virtue and honesty. Seriously,do we need to see this kind of stuff right now. Adam should just express himself, privately, to his ex, by video so that his ex can release it at a later date. That would be more appropriate. Don't you think?

  18. Also - Whoopi and Sherrie are both wrong about the Madonna/Britney/Christina thing. That was the MTV awards and wasn't on ABC.

    This is what happens when you give five old stupid hens a forum to mouth off about whatever they feel like.

    Posted by: Caleb | Nov 24, 2009 10:40:54 AM

  19. If Liz and Sherrie ever came in contact the combined stupidity would cause a collapse of the spacetime continuum

  20. I agree with her, but for different reasons. She said it because she's a prude and a right-wing shill. I'm saying it because that performance was a hot mess from start to finish. Bad song, bad dancing, BAD BAD BAD singing... it was all just painful to watch and to listen to. The sexually suggestive parts were boring and contrived. I don't follow AI, but I have been told that he's a great performer with a wonderful singing voice. I'd like to hear it sometime. Hopefully he's building his career on that talent, rather than just a lot of guyliner.

  21. Elizabeth is half right. Lambert better smarten up and hire a real choreographer and stage director. That number was a giant mess.

    Posted by: Alex | Nov 24, 2009 10:54:05 AM

  22. Yeah- the number was a bit all over the place- he does have a gorgeous voice- how intersting that we were all discussing the Out interview and now here we are a week later with this! it is a HUGE double standard...but, do think he needs to do his thing vocally next time out.

  23. Hey Lizabeth - STFU,lay down and take it in the missionary position you bitch! I fuckin can't stand her!

    Posted by: Disgusted American | Nov 24, 2009 11:12:53 AM

  24. I say - who gives rip what she thinks? And I agree with the post above, sounds like the Dixie Chicks "Shut-up and Sing!"

    Posted by: Christian Messer | Nov 24, 2009 11:14:37 AM

  25. The controversy is being created by a handful of media people, not the general public. ABC described the number of complaints as "moderate," approximately .01% of the viewers. ABC saying they can't show the performance on daytime TV only makes it seem more salacious. Daytime TV is the home of soaps, some of the most sexually suggestive programs on TV. It's another media frenzy created by the media. The average American really doesn't care.
