Simon Cowell Can't Stand Clay

Simon Cowell Can't Stand Clay

Simon was asked recently what he thought about Clay Aiken's admission to taking anti-depressants to help deal with the fame associated with AI. True to form, Simon did not hold back. He said, "Oh give me a break. Let me have a choice, I'm going to work in a coal mine for 14 hours a day or I'm going to be a runner-up on 'American Idol.' Give me a break, idiot." We're not feeling any sympathy for Clay either. Check out his new look as he makes the rounds promoting his new album.

Clay never said he was depressed or that he has stage fright. Simon is an ass. Clay gets anxiety when in a crowded room, that isn't on stage in an arena performing, it's like crowded press conferences. Why is everyone so mean to him? He's a nice guy and I think he's adorable. People are such sheep. They say they hate him because other people say it. That's so dumb. You don't even know him.

He said it was rude for anyone to ask him if he was gay, then said no he wasn't gay.. cause so many straight men travel with fag hags, with little lap dogs in rhinestones and coordinate their eyeliner with their hair and their outfit. Whatever Clay. And get over your damn self! You went on a show called American Idol.. if you then become one.. guess what you may be required to perform in front of large groups of adoring (obviously seriously demented) fans. You can always leave and don't let the door hit ya in your supposed virgin ass.

I too am sick of hearing about Clay's whining. In fact, I hear more about him complaining then anything. I love Simon, he always tells it like it is.

His hair is like a throwback to the Beatles' moptops. (Uh oh, dating myself....lol) If he is depressed it's because he is denying who he truly is, which is SO VERY GAY.

I think if did his hair right and worked out that he could come out of the closet without too much embarrasment to the gay population. Either that or get a sex change.
