Clay Aiken Fighting Back: He Was Just Keeeeding!!
Most have probably heard of the "Scandal 2007" blog that Clay Aiken wrote to his Official Fan Club in the wee hours of February 1, 2007. It received a lot of publicity at the time because it seemed that Clay Aiken was "fighting back" against the tabloids that he so often finds himself in.
For those of you who might not have seen the blog, here it is again.
It seems over the past few weeks, the tabloids and gossip mongers havehad their hands full coming up with new and exciting "scandals" for me to bea part of. Yet, for all of their efforts to be on the "cutting edge" and theforefront of bull$#@& journalism, it seems that some of them may be runningout of ideas and resorting to recycling and re-hashing some of their oldertall tales. How sad!?
With this in mind, we thought maybe we would try to give them a a hand.
For all of the contests that we hold here on the OFC, this one promises tobe one of my favorites.Build-Your-Own-Scandal!
That's right! Let's show off the creative abilities of the greatest group of fans on Earth.
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/shamefulstory.
Then, use any photos, videos, audio clips of me that you can find along withyour favorite multimedia enhancing/"doctoring" program (like a PhotoShop ora sound/video editor) to create your "evidence"!
Maybe you have "pictures" of me being "abducted by oversized turnips"... or... "video" of me "dancing with a three legged gorilla".
Be creative!
You'll submit your "story" and "evidence" to an address that you'll findonline here at the OFC very soon.
I'll personally pick the "story" that not only is most creative, but has themost CONVINCING and REALISTIC looking "evidence"!
(It obviously can't be that hard to come up with!)
The winner(s) will be featured here... PLUS... there will be a great prizeto go along with the honor of being the creator of "Scandal 2007"
This one is gonna be fun!!
Feel free to get started thinking...but, keep your eye out for details onrules/requirements for entry and deadlines and prizes. they be announcedhere soon.
Happy Fabricating!!
Current Mood: Excited
This blog was written by Clay Aiken in the early hours of the morning before he was to appear on Good Morning America to promote UNICEF.
There was great rejoicing among Clay's fan base that "their man" was finally "fighting back". Clay Aiken's blog was picked up by many internet media outlets and some sites even created their own entries.
But guess what?
Now that over a month has passed with no further word regarding this"contest", word has come through Clay Aiken's Official Fan Club that Clay was just "being snarky".
Here is the official announcement at the fan club that Clay's blog was all"snark".
