Will The Real Clay Aiken Please Stand Up?

"The biggest, most important thing, is to make sure that whatever it is I’m talking about … I wanna make sure that whatever shows up on camera, shows up on tape, shows up in the newspaper, anything about me is something that kids can… that parents can be comfortable letting their kids watch, let their kids listen to, something that kids wanna listen to….
You know, you are a role model, if you have this job, whether you wanna be one or not … you can be a good one or a bad one, and I just wanna make sure that whatever I do is on the good side of it, as much as possible.""

"The contest is simple, but will require some thinking and planning...Come up with the most outlandish story you can that places me (either alone or with others close to me) in a really juicy/tawdry/scandalous/shameful story.
Then, use any photos, videos, audio clips of me that you can find along with your favorite multimedia enhancing/"doctoring" program (like a PhotoShop or a sound/video editor) to create your "evidence"!"
