Clay Aiken’s Brain Farts

Clay Aiken Disses Adam and then Apologizes

I, like many of you, use to be a fan of Clay Aiken..  until I read the comments about Adam Lambert. I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion but his comments were way too harsh. Then again, I’m a little biased. To me anyone who does not like Adam Lambert has issues and everyone who does like Adam is my friend… I must have a lot of friends around here 🙂

The first article is regarding Clay horrible comments and the article below is when he apologizes to Adam:

Clay Aiken vs. Adam Lambert: He Made My Ears Bleed

Well, me-ow.

Don’t count Clay Aiken among those upset by Adam Lambert‘s second-place finish on American Idol. Or, for that matter, among those who can be bothered—or care enough—to even watch the show.

There’s apparently no love lost between Ruben Studdard‘s second banana and Kris Allen‘s, evidenced by an entry posted yesterday on Aiken’s subscriber-only-accessible blog.

“For the record…I couldn’t be happier about the way AI ended this year,” Aiken wrote, per Defamer. “I only turn the show on once a season, and only to see what the set looks like each year.

“This year, I happened to turn it during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing ‘Ring of Fire’ and, at that moment, thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful and slightly frightening!”

He then delivered his final blow: “Just not my cup of tea at all. To each his own.”

Granted, Aiken admitted that he never had the good fortune or even desire to assess Allen’s pipes, and acknowledged that some of his most trusted pals told him Lambert’s performances were usually “great,” but he believes the battle ultimately came down to likability.

And per Aiken, like it or not, a vote for Kris was just as much a vote against Adam.

“From what I saw, Kris seemed likable,” he wrote. “That’s not to say that Adam isn’t just as likable as anyone…maybe more so…I don’t know.

“Until the finale, folks are voting for the contestant that they want to see continue,” he went on. “But, I believe on that last night, the dynamic changes. No longer forced to choose one person that they want to see win, the audience can effectively vote AGAINST the person that they don’t want to see win.”

In that way—and that’s the only way he’s willing to go on record about—Aiken claims he and Lambert are very much alike. However, while he and Studdard were evenly matched and equally worthy, he believes the balance was off this year and that voters were reacting to a season in which there was “an obvious bias.”

“Not even having watched the show, I can tell you that I was WELL aware of the bias from the judges as to who should win. In my opinion, that is awfully unattractive. I don’t think I am alone.

“I think many were turned off by the blatant favoritism shows towards one contestant…And, at the same time, I think they voted AGAINST an American Idol that has, for four years now, been more about the slick productions and polished contestants than it has been about finding the raw talent that it did in its first three seasons.

“Enough with the pretention. More Rubens, more Clays, more Fantasias and Tamyras and Kellys please.”

Wonder what Carrie Underwood, Jordin Sparks, Taylor Hicks and David Cook ever did to him.

And lest critics think Aiken is just bitter on account of his not taking home the Idol title, think again.

“My faith has always been in the voters. I think they have gotten it right every year (mine included). It’s now up to American Idol to decide if it will finally REALLY listen to the folks that keep it on the air.”

Guess that means the duets album is out.

Clay Aiken Semi-Apologizes to Adam Lambert, Slams the Blogosphere

Clay Aiken has retracted his claws regarding that other American Idol runner-up, Adam Lambert.

The Broadway star took to his members-only blog last night to address his earlier statements about the vocal styling’s of Lambert. Explained Aiken, “I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard. Any performer hopes that their music will appeal to all people, but no singer realistically expects it to.”

And while no one believed that Aiken literally bled from his ears at the sound of Lambert’s voice, the singer chose to place the focus on the blogosphere’s misinterpretation of his words rather than the harshness of his remarks.

“My opinion is just that, only my opinion, but for as much as some of the blogger’s seem to dislike me and care so little about my thoughts, they sure can waste a lot of their space on what I say,” complains the performer.

To be fair, when that opinion happens to be about the most talked about kid in Hollywood and refers to said “It” man’s singing as “contrived, awful and slightly frightening,” a certain amount of feedback should be expected.  

All criticism aside, Aiken makes it clear that he in no way meant to insult the rocker. “The only person I would really dream of apologizing to is Adam. And the irony is, if he’s smart he couldn’t give a crap what I think.” Aiken continued, “I do apologize to Adam for my colorful (and negative) choice of words. I hope he can forgive me. I imagine he doesn’t give a damn!”

And he’s probably right. Lambert has way too much on his plate to worry about a little criticism. Plus, constantly fielding questions regarding his sexuality—coincidentally, a topic not unfamiliar to Aiken—and enjoying the outpour of Twitter support from all sorts of celebs can take up a lot of time.

 So what do YOU think? Comment below.

Comments

  1. Aiken is so ugly. and he couldn’t sing one millionth as well as Adam. i think he is right, Adam shouldn’t give a crap what Aiken think of him cause he has the ongoing love and support from his fans like us.

  2. Clay is just jealous. He is a star wannabe. I will not be buying his Christmas CD this year..oh yea I never have! LOL. I actually thought he was talented when on AI. I never felt compelled to vote until this year with Adam.. I dont forgive the mean things he said about our Adam.. ADAM is hot..and hes not..thats what it all comes down to. XOXOX LOVE you Adam

  3. ‘Clay Aiken’s Brain Farts’ you sure have a way with headlines xD I cant stop laughing.anyway Adam barely has time to sleep let alone for this (insert name)

  4. Sour, sour, sour. Aiken sure back-pedaled fast after his nasty comments realizing he probably just lost a lot of respect from everyone, not just Adam fans. The guy has quite the chip on his shoulder and is obviously VERY jealous of all the attention (and well deserved) Adam has been getting not just from his fans but from the whole entertainment industry. Aiken is boring, mediocre singing and not an attractive guy at all. But, I won’t waste any more of my time voiceing my opinion on this jerk. I prefer for write about our wonderful Adam. Love you Adam!

    • kiko cooper says:

      I love gay men as friends… They always make life more fun and I have many good friends that are gay…. I think that Clay is just jealous of a fellow gay man or may even have the hots for Adam secretly…That’s how it usually is.

    • Very well put! How dare he diss Adam like that. “Bleeding from my ears”?! Get your hearing checked dude!

  5. jimmiethefish says:

    This guy just says it all: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQrDvri5Esg

  6. bigadamfan says:

    he is just willing to get some more clicks on his blog and more registered members.
    he doesn’t know much about music or adam’s talent. as he wrote – once a year watch this show..he has no idea what’s adam like. so this is all just a big BS. nothing to worry about some kind of jerk’s comments.

  7. adamfanatic says:

    Clay is just jealous. Adam is more talented and hotter and handsome. Adam is the type who even he’s gay, many girls, ladies and women of all ages still have a huge crush on. He’s handsome, hot and a very good person.
    Clay, no hot, no talent.

  8. I used to be a die hard Clay fan, I don’t care he’s ugly and gay. I loved his voice and singing talent. I even put his pic as my PC wallpaper, that my friends thought it was my boyfriend’s pic (Clay has never been famous in my country, Indonesia, although we have American Idol on TV, even when he came nobody cared).

    But his over the top-harsh comment abt Adam has put me off totally. I am no more a fan of Clay.

    I guess he’s just jealous. Adam has everything he dreams of.
    Clay does have beautiful voice but he doesn’t have the perfect technique, stage presence and charisma that Adam has.
    In celebrities list, Clay is only known among Idols circle. But Adam has created such a buzz , even the most legendary people of A-list celebrities talk abt him. Even Santana took time to shake Adam’s hand in the middle of his performance.
    Clay had to hide his sexual orientation from public for years for fear of being rejected by fans. While Adam doesn’t even try to hide, but people still love and adore him.
    Clay is ugly and even with total make-over he still looks plain. Adam has such a beautiful photogenic face and great body, even dressed up in devilish costumes and make-up, Adam still looks amazingly hot.

    BTW, I heard that weeks ago Clay was rejected by Idol management when he tried to meet Adam to talk abt possible duet with Adam. I guess that might be the reason Clay is soo bitter abt adam.

    • tehe you are spot on VENOM. Totally possible that Aiken is bitter for that failed duet negotiation

  9. MITCHIE_FOREVER says:

    SORRY, CLAY, BUT THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE MAD AT YOU.

    THIS IS WHAT I LEARNED AS A PROFESSIONAL. “YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR THOUGHTS UN-UTTERED, BUT A SLAVE OF SPOKEN WORDS.”

    CLAY HAS BACKFIRED HIMSELF AS MANY ARE OUTRAGING. TOO BAD AND WHAT A SHAME!

    I AM NOT MAD AT CLAY BUT I AM REALLY DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I NEVER THOUGHT HE COULD BE THAT BITTER AND TACTLESS!

  10. Yuck!!! clay is soooo jealous and OLD SCHOOL!!! –and so less handsome 🙁

    BTW I used to prefer u unto ruben but now I guess ill stick with neither!!

  11. Oh and he thinks there can be just one gay idol? is that clay?? jealous rat!

  12. AdamIsOurAI says:

    Clay Aiken makes me SICK!! I have never been a fan of his and definitely never will. He could never in his wildest dreams hold a burned candle to Adam – and he knows it. He just wants to do something for attention because his candle has burned out – very quickly I might add. Anyone who charges $30 for a so-called fan to be able to reply on his stupid blog is just desperate to me. Apparently the Idol staff feels the same way toward him.

    On a happier note 🙂 I cannot begin my day without coming to this site and absorbing Adam. I feel like I need that as much as I need air to breathe.

    Love ya

    • Me too… always gotta get a dose of this site everyday for my Adamholism. I get my fix here because only 100% pure unadulterated Adam dose will do.

  13. CatEyes says:

    I guess when you can’t draw positive attention to yourself, negative attention is the next best thing?!

  14. Adamworshipper says:

    don’t you think that Clay should have been an Adam supporter considering that they came second and both are “gays”. May be clay likes him but he knows that he does not have a chance so he decided to get attention. this is just my opinion.

  15. I think Clay’s apology was nice. He said he was sorry. I’m sure he regrets it. There’s nothing else to do now but move on. I’m sure Adam forgives him.

    • AdamAddict says:

      Apologize my ass! He didn’t mean it at all. Just say ‘I apologize for my words,I’m sorry” But he had to continue saying ” I don’t think Adam give a damn or “compliment” Adam is a smart guy,he couldn’t give crap what I think” There’s always a but after the apologize!
      BUT BUT,NO BUT IF YOU’RE SINCERE TO APOLOGIZE. KISS MY BUTT!!

  16. Wat a jerk!!!! i think hes just jealous of all the attention adam is getting. All i have to say is that clay shouldnt be saying this stuff cuz adam is wayyyyy hotter, talented, and has a way better personality than him.

  17. Ana Lambert says:

    Really…no offense, but who is Clay Aiken. Never heard of him, until now…and only because of Adam! That must explains something…

  18. Last week, the local radio station KGBX, Mike Evans, the Hollywood reporter, said Clay was calling Adam everyday. It was reported that Clay wanted to be Adam’s manager. It sounds like Adam told Clay no.

    • AdamAddict says:

      IF THAT’S TRUE,PLEASE ADAM, I BEG YOU TO SAY NO!
      I BE YOUR MANAGER…AND LOVER! LOL!!

  19. I was a clay fan not any more…..my god people look down on Clay so much for some of his choices….he should know more than any idol how unfair it is to be judged for living ones life how they choose….It is about talent I quess clay is jealous his american idol upset is no longer the biggest one…Adam Lamberts is….Kris can have the idol crown Adam is King…..Elvis sent him the crown yes Danny he sent it from heaven….Danny hasnt shown any class saying if him and adam was final 2 he would have won……..wow….these people are nuts Adam Lambert is by far the best contestant ever on american idol……so where does the show go now…..The way people vote needs to be changed untill then I wont watch……..

  20. UK4Adam says:

    ADAM’s NO BOUNDARIES SINGLE FOR INTERNATIONAL FANS
    Hi, I am just posting this, for those who live outside US and would like to buy Adam’s single, it is possible and I just purchased it from both the UK and the US iTunes Stores. Come on, guys – let us make him go Number 1!!!

    ADAM LOVE U BABY TO PIECES ,,

  22. ejw89109 says:

    Ok. I usually try to stay out of this stuff, but this has really irked me. I also WAS a Clay Aiken fan until he started this crap. I think the whole basis of this blog was for him to jump on the coattails
    of Adam Lambert to get his name out there and in the press. I think it is just cheap publicity at the expense of someone else. He states he NEVER watches the show, and yet he has an opinion on how bias the judges were to Adam. If he never watches it, how does he know what the judges have said about anyone. What I would say to Clay Aiken is you had your chance, it’s over. Take a seat in the back of the bus. You have been replaced with an honest, sensitive sincere, mega-talented, gorgeous man. Looking at Adam Lambert, it makes one wonder whatever did we see in him.

  23. THIS ALSO SHOWS YOU HOW FAR APART ADAM IS FROM THE LIKES OF AIKEN– NOT JUST IN TALENT BUT IN CLASS. EVEN DURING THE TOUGHEST, ROUGHES, MOST CHALLENGING AND EMOTIONALLY CHARGED MOMENTS IN IDOL 8– ADAM WAS NEVER MEAN SPIRITED, NEVER DISSES ON ANYONE. ADAM HAS THE MAKINGS OF AN IDOL NOT JUST IN TALENT, BUT ONE SHOULD EMULATE HIS CLASS AND PROFESSIONALISM. BUT THEN AGAIN, THAT KIND OF TALENT AND GOOD NATURE IS INNATE–IT’S INBORN! YOU CAN NEVER BUY OR ACQUIRE GOOD BREEDING… FANS OF ADAM LOVE HIM NOT JUST FOR HIS EXCELLENT VOCAL PROWESS BUT HIS EXCELLENCE AS A PERSON/ THE LIKES OF CLAY AIKEN CAN NEVER HAVE THAT AND SO HE IS BITTER, BITTER, BITTER. POOR CLAY AIKEN.

  24. mamarufus says:

    Now I understand why Aiken did this: he was apparently upset about being rejected for that duet. Not to mention his jealousy over Adam. Adam will rise above this horrible criticism with his own special, classy style. No one can put him down. He is the most amazing entertainer since Elvis!

  25. this was a sad attack on a beautiful and talented person. What was his name? Oh yeah Clay. I voted for him. must have been crazy.I thought he was talented and a good person. Adam is mega talented and mega good looking and he is polished and ready for stardom. The competition was tainted some how and they will get to the bottom of this.

  26. OBVIOUSLY, ADAM HAS MORE CLASS THAN AIKEN COULD EVER HAVE. ADAM IS ALREADY A MUSICAL ICON AND AIKEN IS A RUDE PIECE OF GARBAGE! THAT’S WHAT I THINK OF clay aiken. AIKEN IS A LOSER – AND SO DAMN JEALOUS OF ADAM, HE COULDN’T KEEP HIS DIRTY MOUTH SHUT! HE’S OBSESSED W/ ADAM! GET-LOST AIKEN. CRAWL BACK UNDER YOUR DINGY BLANKEE AND GET-OVER-YOURSELF – EVERYBODY ELSE ALREADY HAS!!! ADAM IS SO UNBELIEVABLY TALENTED, IT BOGGLES MY MIND. HE IS SO GORGEOUS, I BREAK-OUT INTO A PITIFUL SWEAT JUST LISSTENING & WATCHING THE GREATEST PERFORMER THE WORLD IS JUST GETTING TO KNOW! ADAM, LOVE-PEACE-LOVE-LIGHT-HOPE!!!

  27. I thought John Paulus was Clay Aiken’s brain fart.

  28. All I see here is hate, hate, hate. The man is human. Humans make mistakes. Mistake admitted. Apology tendered. I bet Adam couldn’t care less because he’s smarter than any of you. Funny thing is you all sound like Claymates! It’s something they would have done–hate, lie, make up new rumors about another person. haha!

    • Shawna, are you kidding me? Yes, Clay is human and humans make mistake, but his apology is not real. Read his apology statement again. It was so sarcastic and condescending as ever. And no, I was never a Clay Aiken’s fan.

      • AdamAddict says:

        Apologize my ass! He didn’t mean it at all. Just say ‘I apologize for my words,I’m sorry” But he had to continue saying ” I don’t think Adam give a damn or “compliment” Adam is a smart guy,he couldn’t give crap what I think” There’s always a but after the apologize!
        BUT BUT,NO BUT IF YOU’RE SINCERE TO APOLOGIZE. KISS MY BUTT!!

  29. RockChickDigsAdam says:

    Is that really an apology, though? He meant every word he said, he just apologized for the “negative and colorful choice of words” regarding “Ring of Fire.” He didn’t apologize or take back anything he said about how AI needs more “Ruben, Clays,” etc. – more “raw talent” and less “slick productions.” He never watched Kris sing, or Adam sing anything else, and he can judge on who should win? If he has an opinion after watching both of them, fine, but he didn’t – he just wanted to diss Adam, for some reason. He should know better – he showed no class at all.

    • AdamAddict says:

      You’re so right. He just watched that 1 Adam’s performance “Ring Of Fire” and he dared to give comment like he watched all Adam’s show! This man is sick! Someone please help him,because I don’t want to!

    • Indira/Venom says:

      Yeah, kinda funny he said that he only watched this season Idol ONCE on Adam’s performance of Ring of Fire then he said the judges showed bias abt who should win (Adam) and he glad people chose to vote more on other contestant. Isn’t it strange he said that, because we all know that Adam got a very heavy criticism from the judge, specially Simon, for that performance. So, what bias was he talking abt?

      Abt his apology, I read the complete version and I feel more mad. It’s not real apology, not only he’s insulting Adam, he’s also insulting Adam fans who are mad abt it. Read this piece that Clay wrote :
      “I am sure that some were upset by my choice of words describing my opinion of a performance I heard from Adam Lambert. I hope no one actually believed that blood truly poured forth from my ears when I heard him. I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard.”

      WTF, of course we know it’s a metaphor, we’re not that stupid Clay. It’s the way you used that metaphor, it’s the words you used for that metaphor, That is what is wrong with your opinion. I thought someone with geeky nerdy look like Clay supposed to be smart. I was wrong, dead wrong. He’s stupid.

  30. I, too, admired Clay Aiken when he was in the show awhile back. I thought he was poised and was always respectful. I just thought that if he really wanted to do anything with Adam, why give him a negative remark? Why diss him when you want to work with him? What happened to the humble Clay Aiken? I am really disappointed with him. In the past few days I have been watching post idol interviews, shows, etc.. I found Kris Allen and Adam Lambert such wonderful people. I was devastated that Adam lost.. but their friendship is so strong and there was so much bonding there.

    Clay Aiken, while you throw stones to people you want to know and work with.. you should really watch it next time because stones can be thrown back at your direction 10 fold…such low class..

    Adam is such a gentleman and a wonderful person.. I can\t wait to see him in the Idol tour with his good friend, Kris Allen.. PEACE!!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Adam is close with Kris and Allison. Just looked at the finale. Allison always went to Adam and hug him.Awww,she just want to make sure her big brother is okay! No wonder there’s KRADAM and ADISON! Kris always compliment Adam in his interview. That 3 , I love but Adam I love the most!

  31. Clay does make a point in that everyone is entitled to their opinion regardless of how unpopular or un-”PC” it is. But what I think everyone is so riled about is the lack of comraderie between two American Idol contestants who both came in at #2, were both sexually ambiguous in their own way, who both had powerhouse voices, and who both had/are having their time in the spotlight post-Idol. For Clay to trash talk another AI contestant so close to his own experience is just wrong! It reeks of jealousy, cattiness, envy, and just being a spoiled sport/brat about giving up the AI claim to fame and spotlight for the above mentioned reasons. It’s also sad too because it’s like we all got to listen to the inner dialogue of a fading superstar/celebrity. Before his “rant” it seemed Clay couldn’t pay someone to write about him much less give him this much free publicity – and about music no less!!! In the end Clay’s “stunt” will serve its purpose to probably fuel another album release where we can then again rehash this “rant” and compare Clay’s vocals against Adam’s. It helps Adam too because it fires up Adam’s fans to go out and be even more vigilant in their support for him.

    I have to add too that the side-by-side pictures doesn’t help Clay much either!!! Adam CLEARLY has sex appeal that appeals to both men AND women!!!! Clay only appeals to…………??? *crickets chirping*

  32. Clay who? Oh that ugly sour grape!! Actually we’ve never heard of him at the other part of the world, in fact, he’s virtually unknown… internationally! So what he said is meaningless & he’s just looking for attention!

  33. Not relevant to the captioned topic but interest to learnt from Wikipedia….can’t wait for his debut album & I hope he’ll go solo thereafter:

    It has been confirmed by Billboard magazine on May 22, that Lambert is working on a solo album and to expect it to be released some time in 2009. He stated that he would love to work with Slash. He said “When I was working with Slash I felt at home.” Lambert also stated that his solo album will have a variety of sounds.[18] Rock group Queen, with whom Lambert performed on the season finale, are said to be considering asking Lambert to be their new frontman

  34. AikenSucks says:

    Clay Aiken makes MY ears bleed. There is no worry I might buy anything he puts out. I never have, and I never will. I have stuff by Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Hicks, and David Cook. Aiken sucks. It all sounds like sour grapes to me. No one wants anything by him. Adam Lambert is a very talented guy, and I would surely consider buying something of his. Clay Aiken isn’t fit to lick Taylor Hicks boots. Give it up Clay. We all know you are badly in need of some press, but this over the top. Get lost.

  35. PipeDown says:

    Don’t cling to this matter too much, Hun.

    Aiken’s just jealous that Adam’s got charisma, talent, charm, and looks — and Aiken’s got none, except for maybe a wife he’s not even sexually attracted to.

  36. I get tired of hearing how Adam was a “professional” before Idol and therefore it was unfair for him to compete. He knocked around clubs for years as have many Idol contestants. He has never had a record contract. As I understand, he has never been on Broadway. His “Broadway” experience was on a road tour of Wicked. By doing clubwork – for peanuts -he was able to hone his craft. The great thing about Idol is that people like Adam are able to get nationwide exposure that they are not able to get on their own. Once they have that exposure, it is the public who decides if they should be a star or not. In Clay’s case, I would say NOT. He is already a has been. Maybe he could get on Dancing with the Stars!

    • AdamAddict says:

      Adam has the same opportunity like the rest of them. He wants more in his life,he go out there and look for it. What’s wrong with that? In that time, participate A.I was a great opportunity to him so he grabbed it.
      What Clay expect him to do, do theatre for the rest of his life,waiting a record producer come to him and like “Hey, I saw you in wicked and you want sign a contract,boy?”
      Of-course we have to look for opportunity, how the hell Clay think Adam got in theatre? Just sit his butt at home and some stranger offered him? Think before you speak,Clay. You just make a lot of people nauseous!

  37. RockChickDigsAdam says:

    This would be a real apology: “I am sorry I even commented on this season of AI, as I only watched part of one show, and I obviously don’t have a basis for any opinion on the winner of season 8. I was shocked and terrified of Adam’s raw sexuality coming through his performance of Ring of Fire and I felt very uncomfortable. That really can be the only explanation as to why I would disrespect a fellow AI performer whom I should support. My career isn’t as good as I had hoped for and I am angry and frustrated with AI and envious of Adam’s good press, and the judge’s praises of him. Then, when Adam refused to do a duet with me and I wasn’t even allowed on set, I lashed back at AI and Adam, which was a very foolish thing to do. Please forgive me as I get my head out of my ass.” That would be real apology!

  38. AdamRocks! says:

    I can’t believe that Chris Daughtry supported Kris over Adam. . . wth?

    • AdamAddict says:

      MAYBE KRIS SOUND LIKE CHRIS SO HE VOTED FOR HIMSELF!! LOL!!
      OR MAYBE A LOT OF RECORDING ARTIST PROBABLY FEEL THREAT BY THIS POWERFUL ADAM??!!

    • MzRockStar2U says:

      Yeah that kinda pissed me off too. Took the jerk off my twitter list. What a freak. Daughtry is a bald nobody.

  39. Who´s Clay?

  40. jerk Aiken 😐 I once was really into his version of “Don’t let the sun go down on me”. From this moment on, he’s nothing, completely 🙂 Adam is way too high from Aiken’s class to notice either that criticism or the apology. Non-sense!

  41. AdamAddict says:

    TO: ADAM’S FAMILY,RELATIVES OR FRIENDS,

    If anyone here that personally know Adam or his family,relatives or friends,please tell Adam that we like to see him to be an actor too. On big screen! Something like “Moulin Rouge” or “The Notebook”

    Or tv series that he loves so much “Gossip Girl” …nope,no no no, BIG SCREEN for sure!
    Such a waste of talent if he only be a recording artist! Don’t do suck movie like “Speed Racer” Yucks!! He’ll be the next Leonardo Dicaprio. Do the remake of “Titanic!”

    Okay,I need to chug a beer now! LOL!!

  42. Brendan says:

    I’m sorry but Clay needs to just keep his mouth shut!

  43. MzRockStar2U says:

    Clay Aiken has no right to say anything bad about Adam. Seriously… He voted for Kris cuz he likes that singing out of the side of your mouth kinda guy. hey fella how u doin? Nobody appreciates Adam’s talent except those that look past the lifestyle and sees the TALENT. I didnt vote for Aiken I voted for Ruben who has way more talent. Clay SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP. U make me wanna barf.

  44. Ive got to say, Ive hated Clay Aiken since he made a twisted comment on how he used to run over cats when he was driving cause he hated cats, and PETA bashed him about it, and I thought what a piece of garbage, I love cats! why dont somone run him down, see how funny he thinks it is. Now what he said about Adam really increases my hate. This guy is such a bitter wanna be and Adam will be a huge superstar. Howdy Doody should just keep his mouth shut if he doesnt have anything intelligent to say.

  45. Cameron says:

    You people need to stop. Clay wasn’t talking to you. And he apologized. And I think that’s classy. It seems really strange to me that you’d waste this much time and effort talking about somebody you don’t like. What on earth does Clay have to be jealous of? Get a life, people.

    • AdamAddict says:

      I STILL HATE HIM,WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
      IS THAT HOW PEOPLE APOLOGIZE NOWDAYS? OKAY THEN!!

  46. Cameron says:

    Oh, and Joanne. That’s not how it happened. Clay accidentally ran over his kitten when he was sixteen and was devastated because of it. Ever since, he has had an aversion to cats. I love cats, too. PETA was wrong in what they did.

  47. CLAY AIKEN IS JUST JEALOUS BECAUSE HE CAN’T “HAVE” ADAM!!!!!

  48. Milwadamfan says:

    I used to be a huge Clay fan – bought all his albums, his book, went to his concert. This was the last thing I expected from him, but I am a fan no more. Bad idea to spew hate on the Internet. It’s out there forever and impossible to detract. The “apology” was just sticking his foot further into his mouth. He has lost all my respect.

  49. adam is best than ,
    whats your name? ah clay sorry

  50. I just realized, Clay Aiken totally looks like Lindsay Lohan

  51. Clayadam says:

    Where is the love here? Clay blog it on his fan site and those who hated him took a chance to paste it around media. The lesson here is for Clay to be careful to what he says and keep the negative comment to himself. It is just an opinion folks and don’t take it personally. Let us focus on what the two can give us with there respective future projects. Adam is talented and so as Clay. I think even though they have different styles if you just focus on the “voice” they both have the “gift”. I love both of them. “People deal too much with the negative, with what is wrong…Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things that make them bloom?”- Thich Nhat Hanh

    All I have to say is: CLAY AIKEN GO KILL YOURSELF!!!!!
    He is obviously jealous and he wishes he had Adams talent and sex appeal. Honestly, I’ve always hated Clay, and his comments just made me hate him more.

  53. I use to be a fan of Clay. He has changed soooooo much. He’s become a very angry person. I onlly hope he get’s his act together soon!

    I have been a very big fan of CLAY’S since he was on AI, sadly I let my fanship of him and the show go down in the last couple years, and I have been much the worse off for it in every way. But anyway, I think Clay made a mistake by admitting he was indeed gay. I know it is obvious to a lot of, okay, most people, but the constant chatter between his big fans and his, supposedly, anti-fans (who were a little too obsessed with him also), and the back and forth of it and the wondering if or not he was, was what kept people buzzing. Like it or not, there are a bunch of fans who don’t want a guy they support to be homosexual, so denying, or at least ignoring the queries about it one way or the other, kept them in their happy deludinoid world. SO, that is all gone now and so it seems is most of the chit chat about Clay. I know some of his haters actually had to give him credit for being strong and cool enough to come out, and he probably earned some fans that way, BUT, being a crooner who mostly sang love songs to women, I think he should have stayed in the closet. Adam Lambert, well he was never IN the closet to start with so the whole deal isn’t the same, although it probably would have been good for him too. I have to admit I agree with CLAY, and I will say I think they SHOULDN’T have raised the age limit above 25, as the first seasons with the newer untested kids was more innocent and it was more fun to see them grow and be trained and get the stage experience on the show. Having peope OVER 25 has lead to more veterans coming out fully developed and having already HAD their tries in the biz and making the kids that are newbies as they should be on the show, LOOK BAD in their early performances. I miss the first seasons, and unfortunately some of that is just getting jaded and having been through it nine time i know, but if they had kept some of that ‘regular college kid sings on tv’ thing, instead of the professional already people it MIGHT have stayed more fun for longer. Clay is CORRECT, the show evolved into something totally else than what it was originally. GREED is one reason why, and laziness in trying to ensure the contestants weren’t total jokes like a few past season people were. AND SIMON HAS SO MANY MILLIONS HE COULD HAVE GIVEN PAULA A COUPLE OF THEM TO STAY THIS SEASON!!! (or Seacrest could’ve) IT AIN’T THE SAME WITHOUT HER!
