Methinks some people aren't too happy about Clay's ATD single gaining on the AC charts. Can't destroy his career on grounds relevant to his singing and performing talent. And way too many fans are still solidly behind him. Gotta bring out the ridiculous rumormongering and goading. It's a good sign, if you stop to think about it.

I saw the photos at a non PH site, and I don't see the reason for concern. They don't show anything, except Clay putting up his hand to block a camera flash. Cell phones flash. Web cams don't. Most webcams don't point at the floor, either.

They are just pictures and made up messages. Big whoop.

What exactly do the pictures show? I have been told they look like they were taken with a cellphone.

At least the haters are getting a little better. Last time using a picture of a rocker and then transforming it into someone that looked somewhat like Clay was beyond stoopid. LOL

Your concern, while touching, is misplaced. It was predicted that a new fabricated story would make its rounds just prior to Clay's GMA appearance. The fandom was alerted and so is not surprised.

Same old, same old! The haters' (Perez and his ilk) desperation is showing. The fans are not buying it at all.

I cannot wait till next Thursday's appearance. Be sure to tune in!

Clay Aiken :Ooops! He did it again!

Okay Claymates! Start your spinning!

Newsflash to Claymates: Clay Aiken's career is dead

I think it's pretty safe to say that Clay Aiken is finished as a singer/performer. Will his fans continue to stalk him at every turn? Will they peer around the vegatable stand in the supermarket to get a glimpse at their fallen hero? My guess is that the majority of his fans will quietly leave him to pursue other artists. My deepest sympathy to the devoted fans of Clay Aiken. A poem to ease your sorrows...

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you wake in the morning hush,
I am the swift, uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am the song that will never end.
I am the love of family and friend.
I am the child who has come to rest
In the arms of the Father who knows him best.

When you see the sunset fair,
I am the scented evening air.
I am the joy of a task well done.
I am the glow of the setting sun.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there, I did not die!

Michael Musto on Clay Aiken

I just got his book. Can't wait to read it. Musto is hilarious!

Michael Musto has been anointed plenty of titles during his 22-year career writing "La Dolce Musto" at the Village Voice-"The Queen of New York nightlife," "The world's most outrageous gossip columnist," "The Margaret Mead of the party set." Rosie O'Donnell even once called him the "gay Nazi." What's his preference?"

Any of those terms are wonderful," Musto told me the day after the soiree celebrating his new book, named after his infamous column. "I'm delighted to be called anything. Basically, I'm a ho."

After digesting the quirky collection of columns, which have taken on an extra delicious "trip-down-memory-lane" appeal, I wish to add another label to the list-"The guru of incongruity." Isn't it ultimately the surreal contrasts that intrigue, as much as the newsy tidbits?

"I totally accept that," Musto said. "It's not like I'm looking for the surreal, they're serving it on a plate for you. I'm relaying it to the reader. You saw [at my book party] the mixture of people-the fabulous, the wannabes, the has-beens, the never-weres, the club zanies. They're all surreal without even trying. You just can't wait to run home and put it all in the computer. It can't help but make for great copy.

"To be sure, his splashy fĂȘte, held at Room Service on East 21st Street in conjunction with the weekly ambisexual Susanne Bartsch extravaganza, seemed tailor-made for his column. In addition to co-hosts Rosie Perez and fellow gossip Perez Hilton, I rubbed elbows with Mariel Hemingway, Justin Bond, Ivana Trump, Cindy Adams, Joan Rivers, Amanda Lepore, porn god Michael Lucas, and Village Person Randy Jones hawking his new CD. Drag King Murray Hill, named after the nerdy neighborhood where Musto lives, presided over the festivities. Naturally, Patrick McMullan, photographer to the stars, was on hand to document the delirium.

This querulous New York City fixture, who claims to be painfully shy, clearly relished being the locus of attention, and being the reported as well as the reporter.

"I had a great time, which is unusual at your own event," he admitted. "It feels good to be on the other side. Yet my mind was working on how I was going to cover this [for my column]. It was a huge tribute to myself, planned by myself. The ultimate act of self-adulation.

"More and more, Musto finds himself in the media spotlight. You can't switch on a program about celebrity culture on VH1, E!, or MSNBC without seeing his smirking, bespectacled mug pontificating about Lindsay's massive parties or Britney's missing panties. But it wasn't always like this.

"I've gone through different waves of acceptance," Musto recounted. "When I started, nobody cared. I got nastier and nastier and I was cut off from all the lists. Then New York magazine did a cover story on gossip columnists and gave me a good rating, so I was back on track. Now people call me a legend or verging on obsolete. Both of these things mean old.

"One key to his success is that he's unafraid to add politics to the snark, lending his work an unexpected heft. He was one of the first to champion gay causes such as AIDS awareness, and outing celebs at a time when queer role models were sorely lacking. Back in the day, he wrote about such entertainment giants as George Michael, Ellen DeGeneres, and Rosie, when they were still trembling in the closet. You'll find plenty of examples in the book.

"That's been my number one pet peeve," proclaimed the longtime out-and-proud scribe. "In the gossip world, all the columnists have no problems about going there when it comes to any other private issue. It seems hypocritical to me, projecting their own biases. They act all squeamish when it comes to gay celebrities. I'm delighted to see the landscape has changed.

"The self-deprecating dishmeister's favorite closet cases live in an "open-door closet," because they try to live a fairly honest life without declaring their sexuality on the record. Jodie Foster and Sean Hayes are prime examples. Perhaps in part due to Musto's efforts, Ricky Martin and Clay Aiken have both finally stopped playing it straight, and seem to be in an open-door closet as well. Of course, Aiken would never admit to some of the antics reported in "La Dolce Musto," like barebacking with anonymous hookups on the Internet.

"When Barbara Walters asked Ricky Martin on TV about his sexuality, that was a huge breakthrough because before that, everyone was pussyfooting around it, as it were," opined Musto. "After Barbara did that in such a big-scale way, it moved everything forward. Larry King will ask a guest now. Larry King is now the voice of reason. Wow, what a world.

" According to Musto, 2006 was a banner year, with luminaries like Lance Bass, Neil Patrick Harris, and T.R. Knight declaring their queerness to the world. He credits the explosion of Internet gossip sites as the impetus for driving them out.

"The whole world reads this stuff," he explained. "In the old days it was just me screaming in a corner in an alternative weekly. Now I'm online and I reach more people. These celebrities have to come out, because everybody knows already.

"So, with all this over-the-edge honesty, has the gossipmonger ever gotten into trouble?

"In 22 years, I have printed zero retractions and I have never been sued," he declared. "Which is amazing since I always forget to bring paper and end up scribbling [my notes] on stained napkins and toilet paper.

" As for his knack for staying relevant in the face of amplified competition, Musto offers a candid assessment.

"My job is endlessly fascinating. My secret is professionalism. Half the battle is turning in clean copy on time. Despite the fact that I'm constantly going after celebrities with a verbal pickaxe, deep down I'm a fan. I actually love celebrities and I love what I do."

Will Listening to Clay Aiken's Music Turn You Gay?

According to these nuts it will! Lot's of other really talented artists on the list. Pity that Clay Aiken is listed in their midst.

"Suffering is one very long moment. We cannot divide it by seasons. We can only record its moods, and chronicle their return. With us time itself does not progress. It revolves. It seems to circle round one centre of pain." --Oscar Wilde (reformed homosexual)

So What is This About?

One of the most dangerous ways homosexuality invades family life is through popular music. Parents should keep careful watch over their children's listening habits, especially in this Internet Age of MP3 piracy.

Claymates: The Most Awesomely Demented Fans in Music

Clay Aiken fans got a shout-out from for being among the most nasty, delusional groups of fans ever assembled. You'll find the text of the mention and the link to it below.

Congratulations, Claymates!!

The Most Awesomely Demented Fans in MusicPhishheads leave their jobs, Claymates issue death threats, Juggalos go on the rampage with machetes — and then there are the ones who are really crazy.

Idol Pursuits:

Claymates: Defending Clay Aiken’s masculinity since 2003

Fans of the former American Idol runner-up have been dismissed as a delusional cult of lonely, middle-aged hausfraus, but critics who utter an unkind word about the crooner are routinely deluged with angry letters. In 2005 and 2006, Claymates harassed both Rush Limbaugh and Tucker Carlson into apologizing for insulting their hero. The live ammo, however, is reserved for those who insinuate that their beloved Clay is anything less than a strapping hetero: When a former Green Beret dished about the sex he’d allegedly had with Aiken, the ex-soldier was bombarded with death threats frightening enough to lead him to call the FBI. Justify your love: “Many of Clay’s fans are older women, and they react the way a mother would if her child was being picked on,” says Becky Kolacki, an 18-year-old college student who runs a Clay Aiken fan site.

Clay Aiken: Who is Running The Show?

Seems like recently, there has been a lot of trouble regarding the Official Clay Aiken fan club.

When renewals were due, right before ATDW was released, there were reports of multiple charges being made to the credit cards of fans trying to renew their memberships. Probably most of them have been resolved, but joining a fan club shouldn't be a source of aggravation if the fan club is well managed.

Now, members who have paid their fee to join have not received the package that was promised to them months after the fact.

This could be taken as a pattern of bad management in all areas related to Clay Aiken.

The BAF rarely responds when asked to provide information and often, donors don't even know if their donations are received since they are seldom acknowledged. Again, this could be explained by poor management.

Whenever Clay ends up getting bad press, there is no attempt at damage control and there is usually no response other than "calls to Clay's management have not been returned" or "no comment" leaving the Claymates to try to handle Clay's bad PR themselves.

Come on, Clay! Step in and take some responsibility yourself or hire people who will get things done right!

Below are some posts from members who joined the OFC who are still waiting for what they paid for.

For the "Ultimate Package", which is not cheap at $29.99 PLUS shipping and handling, here is what was promised:

Still haven't received OFC package..what about you?
I signed up for full membership around late October 2006 and still have not received the fan package. Are there other fans out there still waiting like me?

I received mine but must admit that I was VERY disappointed with it this year. Felt the t-shirt was beyond generic. Last year's was SO much nicer.

Re: Still haven't received OFC package..what about you?
I renewed the first renewal day and still haven't received my package yet either. I did send a ticket at the OFC regarding this and they replied that they were out of stock and will send out the packages once available. But that was about four weeks ago. You'd think they would restock a little faster. I belong to a fan group here in KY and everyone else received their fanpacks on time. I feel special to be the only one who didn't. NOT!!

There She Is...Miss America...

Clay Aiken has been mentioned often in the news lately regarding the Miss America Pageant.

Here is what has been said about Clay's time with the pageant.

"Others note that Miss America has been here before. In 2001, after the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" craze, producers introduced a quiz show segment. Coupled with a casual wear competition and a Clay Aiken performance, pageant watchers frequently described this as the dark period."

Sooo, since it's in the news and all, let's take a look at Clay's performance at the Miss America pageant. Watch how he flies off the stage when he realizes nobody is paying any attention to him.

Clay Aiken: Why Do So Many People Think He's Gay?

By his own admission, Clay say's he has some feminine characteristics.....but....straight guys are photographed in poses like this all the time, right??!?

Clay Aiken: In His Own Words...Again.

When ATDW was first being released, Clay claimed almost full responsibility for all aspects of the CD, as you will see in the video above.

Months later, after the CD was not successful, on the Tyra Banks show, Clay claimed the CD was "mandated by Clive".

Which is it, Clay?

Also in the video, Clay talks about wanting to tour in the spring. What happened there, Clay?

Clay also mentions UNICEF and how much his fans raised. Why didn't he mention that he set up a special link where UNICEF would know that the money was raised because of HIM?

Clay also talks about his hopes for a talk show on this video. This was before his rudeness towards Kelly Ripa.

Good luck with that talk show NOW, Clay. Maybe YOU think you're kind of funny, but most people don't.

Most ironically, Clay talks to American Idol hopefuls about the importance of always being yourself.

Don't think much needs to be said about that...

Clay Aiken. In his own words.
