Clay Aiken: “Yes, I’m Gay”

By Wyatt Earp | September 24, 2008

<i>The most shocking story of the year.</i>

The most shocking story of the year.

Wow, I am stunned. Truly stunned. /Snark.

Guys, I know this is going to come as a bit of a shocker, so I hope you’re sitting down before you continue reading. But (deep breath, now)…Clay Aiken has confirmed, in an interview featured on the cover of the upcoming issue of People magazine and first leaked on Perez Hilton’s site, that he is indeed (wait for it), homosexual.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

For years, practically from the minute he reared his bespectacled head on season 2 of American Idol, Clay has skirted (again, no pun intended) around this issue–even telling Diane Sawyer herself that she was “really rude” to grill him about his sexuality in a 2006 Good Morning America interview. He always made a big point of keeping his private life just that–private–but it seemed the quieter he remained, the louder all the gossip (and snarky jokes) became.

That’s despicable. You would never find me making snarky jokes about Clay Aiken, I’ll promise you that.

But now Clay has finally come out, in a People article accompanied by the first published photos of his new bouncing baby boy, Parker Foster (who apparently was his inspiration for telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth here, as he told the mag, “I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things”). (H/T - )

Now see, that quote just killed my snark. How could I make fun of the guy when he’s trying to do right by his son. I mean, I could, but I probably shouldn’t. Personally, I couldn’t care less if he’s gay - although I called this almost immediately - as long as he loves his son, and raises him to be a good person . . . and not laugh at Daddy when he’s wearing a tiara and an evening gown.

(Sorry, I just couldn’t resist.)

    This is news…? Was there anyone left that didn’t know he was a fag? Seriously?

    Hope his son doesn’t see the pictures of him trying to pick up guys online that made it around the nets.

    He is what he is. It is between him and God.

    How long until Mahmoud Ahmadinejad invites him to a State of the Union address where the Iranian “congress” gives him a 5 minute standing ovation?

    Hey, M A is at the UN, perhaps he could use Clay as his prop to show his diverse and tolerant views… or perhaps he’d snap and perform the actions on Clay provided by their Holy Book… who knows…

    The only problem I have is that it’s never news when somebody announces they’re heterosexual.

    Well, except maybe Anne Heche. Okay, I stand corrected.

    What I don’t get is why the headlines on Yahoo and whatever else didn’t just read:

    I don’t watch American Idol, and I have no idea who this dood is. I hope he doesn’t slut around in front of his kid.
    And what kind of woman would have a baby and give him up for money?


    I am sooooooo old-fashioned!

    Next thing you’ll tell me, Richard Simmons is on that team too.

    Captain America - I don’t think his newborn son knew. Then again . . .

    RT - Agreed.

    Peakah - Somehow, I don’t think Aiken is getting an invite to Iran anytime soon. They behead gays there.

    Gus3 - But she turned, then turned back. That’s kind of newsworthy.

    Dorkelina - That would have made more sense, I think.

    Ky Person - Some people do anything for money and/or 15 minutes of fame.

    Admiral - Very slow. In Hollywood, anyway.

    Smite - BREAKING NEWS!

    Doghouse - No! Not Richard Simmons!!!

    I like in another article, where he said he couldn’t hide it any more! I wondered what he was hiding? Sausage maybe… I don’t know.

    Definitely a breakfast link. He ain’t smuggling crap.

    Sssteve - Oh, that’s nice. Funny, but nice. Heh.

    RT - Eye bleach!!!
