Simon Cowell on Newly Out Clay Aiken

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayAnglophiliaClay AikenAmerican IdolSimon CowellLGBT


Reacting as he usually does, Simon Cowell spoke to TV's Extra about Clay Aiken's People magazine cover, proclaiming publicly for the first time that he's a gay man.

Says Simon, "Wow, that's a shock. It's like being told Santa Clause isn't real - unbelievable."

Wait a minute.

Santa Clause isn't real??????

Putting his delicious nastiness aside, Cowell added, "Good for him. If he said it, it's the right thing for him. Good for him."

What advice does Simon have for the Gayken???

"Make a good record," says Cowell. "He's got a good voice…He's on the front cover of People. He's still popular."

Gosh, Simon does have a heart! A teensy-tiny little itty-bitty one, because when asked if Clay asked him to be Parker's godfather, he replied, "I think I'd be the last person on Earth he'd call."

Oh Simon!

Identifying with Aiken's situation, Lance Bass was totally congratulatory. "I think it's amazing," says the former 'Nsync-er. " He's probably heard it all before… He's just going to be living his life like he wants to. Everyone's going to be very supportive and he's going to be the happiest he's ever been."

But will it hurt his female fan base?

Lance was reassuring.

"I swear, when I came out, I had more female fans."

Good times!

    Um, Santa ClausE isn't real….it's a semi-entertaining Tim Allen movie! ;)

    For the record, why's Lance kissing his partner (Lacey, a woman) on DWTS? Just sayin'!

  28. 28

  32. 32

  34. 34

    Re: Swimstud – cocaine dick? IF those were your abs, i'd say you had cocaine abs. i'd just wanna lick em! yum!

  35. 35

    It's Santa Claus NOT Santa ClausE….. you idjit! Geez!

  36. 36

    simon has a HUGE heart.. or did you miss the whole american idol special where they went overseas and simon was having a hard time not crying.. or him on Oprah giving people money to help them out… to me.. the whole 'it's like being told santa isn't real' was him being his fabulous sarcastic self :) he's not a moron - he's known since the beginning, just like the rest of us.

  37. 37

    I don't really understand what's the point of "coming out" It's really none of anyone's business firstly and secondly who's making a big deal of it….it seems a bit redundant as well. Just do what you need to do, why make a point and say HEY I'M GAY…or HEY I'M HETEROSEXUAL. JMO

  38. Eriks says – reply to this


    So the question is when is Simon going to come out now! and also Ryan Secrest oh BTW I detest Lance Bass

  39. 39

    ps…who the heck cares!?

  40. 40

    Lance you can bet on that! Clay congrats! love the picture of you holding the baby!

  41. 41

    Perez… it's Santa Claus. No "e" at the end. Santa is not a section of a contract.

  42. 42

    I thought for a minute that Santa was gay … well words to live by Simon.

  43. 43

    There is nothing wrong with being gay…
    Stop being so closed minded and pull your heads out of your asses please

  44. 44

    for serious, why can't anyone spell Santa Claus correctly? Ever since that stupid ass movie came out, jesus. There's no "E". Santa would be pissed.

  45. 45

    Not only isn't Santa real… but his last name is spelled "Claus".
