There is a misunderstanding because camp is different from the concept of being modern or avant-garde or kitsch. We use the word 'camp taste'. In other words, it is based on subjective tastes you have to consider something as camp. If you have a camp taste, you would think that a certain works of art are over the top ,but at the same time interesting and enjoyable. People without camp taste would only find them inferior and ridiculous. So calling something campy would mean that the lover of camp finds them amusing.
I thought Sexbomb is a camp but it's not like there is a specific list of conditions to be camp. What I want to point out is you don't necessarily need to feel offended for your favorite programs/skaters/costumes being called camp. (but in case when competitive programs are called camp and when it's not supposed to be funny at all, maybe it wouldn't be pleasant from the skater's point of view I suppose...)
This is one of my favorite part of Notes on "camp"
Camp taste is a kind of love, love for human nature. It relishes, rather than judges, the little triumphs and awkward intensities of "character." . . . Camp taste identifies with what it is enjoying. People who share this sensibility are not laughing at the thing they label as "a camp," they're enjoying it. Camp is a tender feeling.
"Masculine power artistry" was Elvis Stojko. Or was that camp?
I don't think he was camp - if I understand the word "camp" a little bit from reading this thread. But his kind of masculine power artistry had little charm on me. It was just martial art on ice. The reason was probably because I've never liked martial art.
OK, here's another one. Was Rudy Galindo's YMCA camp? Or was it just wonderfully entertaining? Everyone loved it from little kids to the grey-haired grandmothers who took them to Champions on Ice to see the acrobats and the hula-hoop girl.
To give some examples, I think Lambiel's red cat is campy. Also to help explanation, what I presented as camp in my paper was Korean idol groups which are similar to boybands like Backstreet boys. So I would say BSB's Larger than life MV would be a good example for camp.
