Clay Speaks Out

Poor Clay Aiken is supposed to be clearing the air about the gay rumors while he promotes his new album, but he still leaves us hanging. We personally could care less but when you hear his name, or look at his latest hairdo, gay comes to mind. When asked directly if he was gay, he said,

"What do you say (to that question)? … It's like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, 'Did you do this?' Well, it didn't matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. … People are going to believe what they want."

I guess when going from geek to chic the world speculates and like Clay said, we'll believe what we want.

He said he wasn't gay lots of times but they just keep pushing for a yes answer. They didn't listen when he answered so many times and then they started all the tabloid gossip lies to force him to come out. He can't come out if he isn't gay so leave him alone. I think he was telling the truth all along and he's tired of the topic so he won't talk about it anymore. Maybe he's smart. He'll get married and have kids one day and be happy. I think it would be horrible to have people make fun of you for something you're not.

Well he already answered a few years ago,I think it was in Rolling Stone.He said he wasnt..Even if thats not true,why should he have to keep answering it?

I think he is and is trying to make the point that it shouldn't matter...and it doesn't! Bad hair, though. Fug!

I don't care if he's gay or not, however, from this quote it clearly sounds like he is but he's not admitting it. There's no denial of being gay in that little speech.

hey_love02 - why should he answer the question in the first place? It's none of our business.
hey_luv02 hey_luv02 10 years
hes trying to go around the question, when someone does this they are trying to cover up for something. A simple No to that question would of been fine, but he has to go into a childhood story? He is gay!

He looks like KD Lang. Anyway, yeah, why must we always ask people if they're gay or not, if they want to come out, let them come out. He is right, if he says no, not many people are going to believe him anyway. The just waiting for him to say "yes." I do wish for a time when nobody is scared to say what the are, and if someone is asked if they're gay (or asked something else) they can openly say "yes" without fear of physical abuse or open judgement. A girl can only dream.

ah yes the classic non answer which in PR language means "yes but my publicist told me not to answer" Whatever I don't care if he is or not I liked him on Idol but not anymore so go fly a kite

LOL Lauren, yah I don't get that part of the equation either. How does he look gay? He looks geeky to me. That said, I totally think he's gay. LOL But I could care less, and frankly wish they would stop bugging him about it.

I agree its not our business if he is gay or not BTW he is 110% gay lol but he is in the public eye being in the industry he is and what if he wants a date for some red carpet event or whatever he should be able to openly go with his boyfriend or significant other without being secretive plus he can be a role model for other gays but oh well thats just my opinion

Gay or not apparently he acted like a real diva in Toronto on the weekend according to anyways. He berated a 14 year old girl so badly she burst into tears. He was supposed to be encouraging not doing a Simon Cowell impression. Did he forget where he came from already! lol idiot

Frankly, I don't give a rodent's posterior if he's gay or not. I think he is, but it doesn't really matter. I'm from his area and I don't hear much about him here anymore. For awhile it was nuts!

I think he needs bigger teeth. His tiny teeth are what makes his mouth look strange. He is a good guy and I watched him from American Idol.. I stand my ground I will defend Clay!!!

Yall are right who cares if he is gay? Obviously he does or he wouldnt keep talking about it or pushing the issue with his wardrobe. Sorry straight men do not dress an act this way. He takes metro sexual to the extreme. Happy Wizard of Oz Wednesday!
