Clay Opens Wide - Speaks More!

| Filed under: TV NewsGay Gay GayClay AikenLGBT


Haven't gotten your fill of Clay Aiken just yet???

Great! Cuz there's more!

Tune in to Good Morning America at 7:00am on Thursday to watch the Gayken's first television interview - with Diane Sawyer - since coming out.

What a media feeding frenzy this is turning out to be!!!

In addition to everything he said in People, Clay adds to GMA that with the birth of his son Parker Foster Aiken he felt it was time to "let his guard down," especially since he is now responsible for another life.

He also defends his choice to keep his sexuality to himself for so long and says that he found all the rumors "rude" and "invasive" because what he does in his private life is "nobody's business anymore."


Initially worried about his fans' reaction, he's been more than surprised by the outpouring of support. He responded with, "for the first time in recent history I am speechless. I'm so proud to know and love you all."

You should have done it sooner, Mary!

Naturally, Clayton is excited about his new role as dad and boasts that his son is "a loud one, that's for sure. He's got some lungs on him."

Already working on his American Idol audition?

    GOSH, Perogie,
    YOU the king of RUDE should object to his statement??

    You should defend him, not ridicule him.

    Do you have a soul?

  4. 4

    aw, i'm glad he decided to come out. good for him! :]

  5. 5

    Clay is so fucking ugly!

    He looks like he's "transitioning!"

    good for him.. :-D

    Everyone knew he was a fairy from the very beginning. I find his "coming out" as no surprise at all!

  10. 10

    I'm sure the kid will grow up very well balanced with NO MOTHER IN HIS LIFE !!!!! Jeebus… Nice thinking, Clay!

    Good luck, kid.

    please visit www.stripology.com… go ahead. Do it.

    don't be mean.
    he's an amazing singer.
    …and an amazing person.

    go CLAY!!!

  13. 13

    I respect gay celebrities choice to not comment on their sexual orientation. Ìs anyone drilling Cameron Diaz about how and if she is attracted to men? No.
    Sexual orientation and gender identity is a norm as personally established by each person. It's not rocket science, just humanity.

  14. 14

    Seriously, has anyone seen his dick?

  15. 15

    He looks like ellen degeneres!!!!!!!!

    That's great and all but I still don't like him. His sexuality has nothing to do with it, I just don't like him. He's ugly and I really don't know what the Claymates (the lamest, most idiotic fans in the world) see in him.

    I love queers, but Gay Aikin makes me homophobic.

  19. 19

    I am as gay as they come, but I wonder why Clay wears SO much nighttime makeup during the day.

    What is with the mascara?? I mean, really.

  20. 20

    fuck off perez. he had every right to keep his sexuality private.

  21. 21

    Rubin Studdard was the winner! Let's talk about him. Screw Gaykin.

  22. 22

    "Clay, daddy is coming into the room…with the vaseline…your buttcheeks are so warm, they feel good with my hamhands…" haha

  23. 23

    I agree with him. What a person does in their own private life is nobody's business….especially when he didn't try to make it other people's business.

  24. 24

    Why the hell would anyone want his sperm?! He is so fu*king gross! That poor child.

  25. 25

    Re: JasonDavis.com – The mother is in his life.

  26. 26

    God now he's never going to shut up about the fact that he's gay.

  27. 27

    i'm not surprised he 'came out'. can you even really call it that? everyone already knew… as far as the kid on american idol - let's fucking hope not! the last thing we need is a little gayken in the public eye! anyone else get the feeling this kid is going to be a disaster? i know i can't be the only one… gayken is so damn ugly. i'm not even being mean on this one, i almost feel bad for him. the man-make-up doesn't help him any.
    why is he lame perez, because he doesn't flash his sexuality around like you? that's his choice. you're the lame ass perez, your attitude and the way you bash gays makes gays look bad. shouldn't you be supporting them? you are gay afterall, and if you won't support each other, who else will?
    i agree with whoever, gayken DOES look like elen dengenerate! i don't think he has the best vocals, but he's not too horrible. i feel sorry for his kid though. can you imagine the shame of having him for a father? i guess it beats having jenna jameson and tito ortiz though!

  28. 28

    Re: Laury – There's a lot to like. But I agree this is one awful picture of Clay. I liked how he looked when AI manufactured him. Now he looks way to feminine. He could be a hottie with the right stylist.

  29. 29

    Like who didn't Clamo was "Enchanted"!

  30. 30

    God bless you and your baby!! We love you!!

  31. 31

    Ew why does his skin blend into his hair?! so ugly!

  32. 32

    I'm so proud of Clay! He came out when he was ready and wanted to be honest. I'm sure he'll be a GREAT father! You have my support Clay!

  33. 33

    OMG he looks just like Lindsay Lohan but with short hair….

  34. 34

    Old news…..should have done it back when he was famous.

    I do, however, like the idea of him with a baby though.

  35. 35

    what is the big deal? and what media blitz? he was not 'lame' as you say-he had every right to want privacy-he was not seeking attention like lilo-probably wanted to get it over with-probably feared people like you perez, running up to a toddler and asking if he is in the closet with his dad.

    Perez, you are, quite honestly, THE biggest jagoff that I have ever come across.
    You must be SO insecure, with your life and sexuality, that you feel it is imperative to 'out' those who are not ready, willing and/or able….in order to make your own life and orientation seem important and justified. And then, when they finally DO 'come out'…you have the unmitigated gall to call their reasons "lame".
    Who the f**k are YOU, to judge anyone?!?

  37. 37

    You're right - he SHOULD have done it sooner.

    But, better late than never. He's out now and that's a good thing.

  38. 38

    Gayken!!! Woot!
    Yes, we should all be honest about who we REALLY are and be free, dammit. It is such a fuckin relief, I tells you. No more hiding! The energy it takes to hide who you are is enormous. I am happy for him and you should be as well, Master!
    Altho, this picture of him is really atrocious. Did you scour till you found the ONE?
    Gayken! Not so much makeup and Lezlo -colored flat ironed hair. It looks unnatural and a bit weird.

  39. 39

    I am sooo Clayed out-NO MAS

  40. 40

    I agree with Clay 100%, and I'm no big Claymate, believe me. You're like the bully on the playground spouting slurs, Perez. I'm glad he did it on HIS time, when HE was comfortable with the decision to come out. Good for you, Clay!

  41. emts says – reply to this


    This spermbucket should be ashamed of himself…once he got his child he feels a need to come out……his career has already tanked….the only thing that would complete the smile on my face is full blown aids…..way to be proud of your sexuality..

  42. 42

    He only came out for the $$$. People wouldn't have paid him the big bucks if he didn't.

  43. 43

    I agree to his right of privacy….but, who really cares if he came out….everyone knew anyway…

  44. todd says – reply to this


    he looks as good as perez

  45. 45

    Clay Aiken is gay? Get outta town!!!!!

  46. 46

    You know Gay Aiken, maybe you should not be bringing a human life onto this earth when you are not mature enough to have been HONEST to people from the first day you knew you liked to suck D*CK!!! Sick of you flamers who pop out babies without any thought to how your gayness, lack of relationship or partner and frankly your queer ways will impact this child. You should be ashamed!!!!!!

  47. 47

    Perez, you should be more supportive of Clay. Isn't coming out hard enough even if you're not a celebrity? He also had to deal with a lot of religious pressure too, which must've made it even harder on him.

    Give him credit for being honest, he did it on his terms and in his time.

  48. 48

    Wowzers. Perez really sounds like a bitter old queen these days. Meow.

    I could give a rat's ass about Gayken but I do respect his decision to keep his private life private (or at least attempted to) and I respect his decision to come out at this time. However…big deal.
    I just don't understand the fascination with 'outing' a celeb. Why must they, often times, *Announce* their sexuality under the pressure of the media. Heterosexuals don't do that.
    It's a double standard.
    It's not fair to members of the gay community who are gay. It's gotten sickening how these celebs get browbeaten with the 'are you or aren't you' question. If someone is not public with it, that's their business (and they probably have their reasons for it, too). If you are public with it, that's great, too.
    It's just…tacky.

    PS…C'mon, NO one was suprised by this, anyway. Therefore: NOT news.

    This is coming from a gay man, so I have experience.

    Yes gay people need to be proud of their choices in life, but it's no-one's business but their own.

    When are people like you Perez going to get over yourselves? Why should we yell it from the rooftops that we are gay…who the fuck cares these days. That's what the gay movement worked towards all these years, acceptance, which mostly we have but with still more work to go unfortunately.

  52. 52

    oh look at that face..ewww

  53. 53

    "He also defends his choice to keep his sexuality to himself for so long and says that he found all the rumors "rude" and "invasive" because what he does in his private life is "nobody's business anymore.""
    He's right. Don'r we have 2 wars, a shitty wconomy, and an election coming up?! Who gives a fuck about this shit?! And if McCain wins, it won't matter because he'll probably have ALL gays "dtained"(read=killed).

  54. 54

    I am cool with gays but I would seriously love to pound Clay Aikens face in

  55. 55

    Clay cannot be gay,
    he has that macho first name, Clay".
    He is no more gay than Rock Hudson,
    men with macho names can not be gay,
    besides girls love Clay Aiken, therefore,
    he is a flaming heterosexual.
    (If Clay were gay,
    he would have a show on The Bravo Network)

    He looks like Lindsay Lohan

  59. 59

    This is sooo lame. He's made his homosexuality a big deal for himself by denying it when he should have gone public with it. So what if Clay likes dick? I think this is all a PR orchestrated move - he is hoping that his child will deflect the stigma of being gay. If he were to come out, he should have come out earlier. Why wait till his son was born? F

  60. 60

    i love u clay!

  61. 61

    I'm quite surprised at this "media frenzy" over this. I mean I don't even like Clay's music, and he wasn't even that popular in South Africa, but even all the way down here on the tip of the dark continent, we knew he was gay when first we clapped our eyes on him. So the only thing that is surprising me is that he only came out NOW, thought he had ages ago.
    But, as a gay boy myself, always nice to have gay "celebs" out there be open about their sexuality, we can never have enough of those…young people need some positive queer role models, Clay seemingly can be one…
    All the best to him and his baby.

  62. 62

    Why is it such a big deal…like who on this earth was actually suprised about all this??? Whatever. More power to him.

  63. 63

    Ugly Boy =_=

  64. 64

    Glad he finally "came clean" - thing is, he reminds me of another gay celeb: Cynthia Nixon. I swear, my grandma asked if this was "The redhead from Sex and The City's brother." LOL ;)

    Re: rocketRe: amylala

    WOW you must be gay too to think that

  67. 67

    this is no surprise at all, looking at his gay face is sickening
    though….wow too many people are coming out these days…whatever happened
    to the good old days when it was simple. this world is sick and unfortunately
    they will be punished for this one day

  68. 68

    does he seriously think he came across as anything other than gay in the first place? deary me

  69. 69


  70. 70

    What we will find out next, (based on this picture) is that Clay is REALLY a GIRL, trapped in a somewhat man's body so he's actually straight because he likes MENZ and he's really a gggiiiiiiiiiiiiirrrrrrrrrl!

  71. 71

    Watch out Clay. Looking like this, Ellen might be courting you soon! lol

  72. 72

    EVERYONE already knew he was GAY…WHO CARES??!! he must have something to promote and needs his face plastererd everywhere, or he's hurting for cash..since he's deciding to "come out" NOw

    That was good with the vocals. I had no clue that you could sing that well!

    So Clay rides the bologna pony…who cares?
    Here's the JESSICA UPDATE: "Jessica Simpson continues her desperate bid for fame and acceptance as her bomb of a CD slides out of the Top 10 after only one week. Her single has completely fallen out of the Country top 50. Her CD does remain in the top 10 on the Country charts but has sold a paltry 80,000 copies total. Her last shitbomb of a disc "A Public Affair" sold 300,000 and was considered a complete failure. The Simpson sisters need to go away for good now, it's obvious that Hollywood (and the rest of the world) do not want them around." Wow, wow, wow!

  77. 77

    Fat and fatuous attention-grabbing queen: came out of the closet to his mom on the day his brother deployed to Iraq, that nasty piece of work.

  78. 78

    Clay, Congratz on the baby, adorable. Thankx for coming out, coz
    that's why we hate Tomkitty so bad. He lies. Dye your hair black again, it is so hot. I love your ass.
