After the concert footage made CNN for the second time last night, I feel the need to discuss Amsterdam. The two segments varied greatly in tone with the first segment, near Thanksgiving, being based on him being a turkey for his actions. That was a panel discussion with AJ Hammer, the host of last night's clip, being the loan dissenter, citing young fans and the video going viral, as the others said it's Adam, what do you expect? Plus, he likes the attention and making people think, as we all know. As for last night's clip, it was Rockers and Shockers of 2010, but anyone who knows anything about Adam knows that Amsterdam was a kickass night, but I wasn't totally surprised. As with much of his life, he hasn't exactly hidden his previous drug use. I was honestly surprised by how well he set up the toking with Purple Haze, not the fact that he lit up in Amsterdam. Also, until the encore at the Nokia, I thought the performance was going to be the only full performance of the song that he did. That would've been genius.


As for fan reactions, honestly, have people learned nothing in the last year? Adam loves to push buttons and as long as we react, he's done his job. All publicity is good publicity in the end, ask the fans who are fans because of the AMAs. As for the worry over young fans, if parents do their job, they have nothing to worry about. Talking to your kids about drugs will do more than Adam abstaining on stage. My parents are classic rock fans and I listened to many songs with drug innuendo and watch plenty of footage of illegal substance usage. Having my dad answer me honestly when I asked about certain lyrics, songs or actions did more than my DARE classes ever did. As such, I hope Adam continues to do whatever he wants on stage. And if you can't take the heat, maybe you shouldn't be giving him your time and money.
