Clay Aiken on Spam and Love

January 29th, 2008 // 12 Comments

There’s something so right about seeing Clay Aiken dressed in a tuxedo with tails, bejeweled with sequins as he belts out tunes on Broadway. The “American Idol” alum has taken to the stage to perform in Monty Python’s “Spamalot” and seems to be doing a superb job. But the real question is, will Clay, who is living alone in NYC for the first time in his life, finally venture out on some dates…you know, REAL dates? According to Clay, it ain’t gonna happen.

Aiken recently told New York magazine in an interview that the closest he gets to having a significant other is his relationship with his dogs. When prodded as to whether or not he has…special urges, he responded by saying, “Ah think maybe I don’t! I mean, not really. I’ve just kind of shut it off, maybe. Is that bad?” Poor kid, still in such denial. This would have been so much easier for him if we would have just gone to prom together.

    Maybe he’s a eunich.

    The poor guy should just come out. His fans will probably take a minute to get over it, but I’m sure they’d still love him.

    of COURSE he’s not dating. he like the casual hook up from much better.

    Lisa or J-King. Please do something with Clay Aiken picture that’s on ICYDK site. It’s,… you just gotta headline it. Pretty Please????

    Thank you so very much,

    He looks aweful. Is that intentional???

    He’s a smart cookie. He knows that if admits he is gay, all the scandalous I-knew-he-was-a-homo-talk would die after….hmmmmm, 3 months tops? So continuing his I don’t have sexual urges (someone should really send him those photos of him lifting up his shirt to show off his pasty torso while he was in a gay chatroom) persona, does keep him in the news. We are talking about him, right?

    His response reminds me of how I was before I came out. I preferred to be considered asexual as opposed to homosexual. Playing it straight was something I knew I couldn’t pull off.

    I read the New York article and just thought, oh man, this guy is 100% damaged. I feel bad for him, and here he is in the big city, and is sitting in some most likely fabulous apartment, with his dogs licking his balls. Whatever. Why does anyone care? He’s a big, fat, closeted queen, and he probably really doesn’t even quite know it…someday he might, or might not, so good luck, Claymation!

    Ok…is he looking like a love child of Piper Laurie and Carrot-Top?

    I wish I didn’t say it.

    I’m scared now.

    Someone hold me.

    I’ll hold ya, Bill. Are you sure he’s not Barry Manilow’s love child? And for ALL the Fanilow’s, I really & truly do LOVE Barry, but that was the first thought that went thru my mind. Hmmmmmm Barry Manilow has a love-child! But WHO was the baby daddy????

  11. yeah

    You know, I have to say, he didn’t say he wasn’t interested in “urges”, just that right now he had too much on his plate so he sorta “shut it down”. How many have done the same thing at times? I don’t know. I don’t get gay; I get mind your own fucking business, really. I get frustration with answering and then having the perception remain the same, and deciding to just say fuck it all.

    Personally, I think it would be hi.lar.i.ous to see him actually verbalize that. Maybe on the View…BaBaWaWw would totally stroke out. Heh.

    By the way, I have read virtually everywhere that he’s really good in Spam. Imagine that.

    He looks like the son in MASK starring Cher.
