"You either like it or you don't like it," the "American Idol" runner-up told "Extra" after his toned-down gig at "The Early Show" Wednesday morning. Lambert was criticized earlier this week for his AMA performance, in which he simulated oral sex and made out with a male band member.
"If you're not into it, don't listen to the music... change your channel," Lambert continued.
Lambert -- who was dropped from "Good Morning America" Wednesday morning after the network received more than 1,500 complaints -- thinks the drama "will probably blow over."
"I don't think it's really that big of a deal," Lambert added. "I think people will kind of look back at it and be like, 'Oh my gosh, why did we make such a big deal about it?'"
On the "Early Show" Wednesday, he admitted he got "carried away" at the awards show.
"But I don't see anything wrong with it," he added, pointing out that he was unfairly judged because he's gay and a man.
