Lambert, an "American Idol" runner-up, kissed a man and simulated oral sex on stage during his rendition of
"For Your Entertainment" Sunday night.
ABC's "Good Morning America" subsequently canceled his planned concert Wednesday after the AMA performance attracted criticism.
"I admit, I did get carried away, but I don't see anything wrong with it," Usmagazine.com quoted Lambert as saying on CBS's "The Early Show" Wednesday about the AMA performance. "I do see how people got offended and that was not my intention. My intention was just to interpret the lyrics to my song and have a good time up there."
Lambert admitted some of his racy gestures were "impromptu" and he hadn't tried them out in rehearsals for the awards show.
"ABC was taken a little by surprise -- and that wasn't my intention," he said. "I wasn't being sneaky."
