Clay Got Paid!!!

| Filed under: Gay Gay GayClay AikenMedia MinuteLGBT


Magazine industry insiders reveal that Clay Aiken was paid $500,000 to pose on the cover of People with his new baby AND to talk about coming out of the closet.

The crappy economy apparently forced Clay to settle for that 'paltry' figure.

Frankly, we think he was overpaid!

The only other magazine who bid against People for the story was OK! and they're being forced to be more budget conscious.

Is Clay going to give the money to charity?

Hell no!

  2. 2

    well duh!

  3. 3

    leave him alone.
    he has a baby and a spinster to take care of.
    of course bitch got paid.

  4. 4

    What a shameful waste of money that could have been better spent somewhere else, like helping the needy!

  5. 5

    of COURSE he got paid, why are you even surprised?? Why would he come out of the closet (even though we all knew) and not get paid for it? He has a baby to take care of now and i'm sure he doesn't have THAT much money.

  6. 6

    i knew that! i would do it for the money!

    who the HELL is this guy and why must we hear about him all the freaking time?

  9. 9

    If anything the money should go towards his sons education. After all; its the kid who`s the moneyshot.

  10. 10

    Gotta make that money

  11. 11

    Why should he get paid and all this attention for being a closeted liar? He's a has been already so nobody should give him the time of day…

  12. 12

    Are you going to give money from your new single, your club appearance fees and your advertising money towards charity???

  13. 13

    I think Perez has a crush on someone………we sure do hear about him an awful lot.

  14. 14


  15. 15

    he had to pay off the photoshop people!!!!

  16. 16

    I think the real question here is where'd he get the Sarah Palin glasses?

  17. 17

    And WHY wouldn't he get paid, at least it's not millions like Brad and Angélina. And he probably needs the money, he will be his own charity. Mind your business, stop being so bilious Perez.

    Didn't Lindsay get offered well over a million to come out?

  19. 19

    So what if he did get paid. That is what people with talent do…get paid. What is your talent, other than bringing people down with your shitty attitude.

  20. 20

    why should he give it to charity?

  21. 21

    he gives
    me the

  22. 22

    umm…why is everybody acting like they were surprised he's gay….
    I mean come on ppl get it together…
    We knew he was gay since he opened his mouth on AMERICAN IDOL..who cares…

  23. 23

    The money should go to a stylist. Gaykin is FUGLY. And not cuz he's gay. Gay or straight or whatever, he's one ugly dude.

  24. 24

    WTF Perez! Angelina Jolie received $15 millions, Jennifer Lopez $5 millions and you are amazed that Clay Aiken received $500,000 for the baby pics? In my opinion, and probably we will find out about that later, this issue with Clay Aiken will sell like water, much more than Angie's and Lopez's issues. Come back here with these numbers later!

  25. 25

    Why would he give the money to charity?… he works for charity enough, so me as a mother will put this money on baby's school funds… Maybe they will do the same!

    thats still too much for a d lister. i think its crazzzy that they gave bradgalena 14 mil for the pic of their evil spawn

  27. 27

    ahh i'm tired of hearing about him!! He's gay duh!! No surprsise!

  28. 28

    do you give the money from your interviews/photoshoots/whatever to charity? what about your ad money, the cash from your clothing line, whatever you're getting from itunes? i doubt clay donated his cash, because like you, he needs it. you're in a better position to donate than clay, he has a new baby to take care of! speaking of the baby, i'm really surprised he's acutally a cute little bugger. i was expecting him to be hideous like his daddy! this crappy magazine obviously has too much money to blow, paying brad and angelina, j.lo, etc. the amounts they did. who wastes money on this anyway? i just flip through while i'm waiting to check out. :) and they can can say whatever they want, not all of that money from the 'brangelina' pics went to charity! most of it ended up in their bank accounts.

  29. 29

    Is that his real child or was the kid adopted?

  30. 30

    Clay, I have always loved you and now even more. We all hate Tom Cruise cause he's a liar from pits of hell and I hope he burns there. Your baby is great and so are you. Black hair like perez, honey, it makes you incrediably hot.

    Poor kid has to grow up knowing he came to be from a turkey baster cuz daddy is a fudgepacker…..sad.

  33. Ammie says – reply to this


    He'll need the money to pay for the little one's college. Perez, keep your eye on your own money.

  34. 34

    I agree with alot of the posters, Perez, you are a hypocrite. You probably take money for everything you do and every network show wallpaper that slows down this site to a snails pace.. And why should Clay give away his money? He has a kid now and he probably could use it. Most people figured he was gay, but he might have been able to get more if people like you didn't keep harping on him. He is not brangelina making obscene millions. amazed that people is still forking over the bucks-they are either going to go bankrupt or end up with a cover price of $10.

  35. 35

    I never got into his music, I'm not a "Claymate" but he came off as being very genuine in the People article and he has one adorable baby!!!!

  36. 36

    Re: punky.penguin – I agree with thte first part,, Lets see Perez's list of charities he donates too yearly…

  37. 37

    He sold out his kid for money. If he claims to be so concerned with the well-being of his child, he would not have plastered him all over the world as "the child of a homo", until the child was old enough to make that decision for himself.

  38. 38

    who WOULDN'T do that for $500,000
    thats free money!
    fuck yeah lol

    id come out as a lesbian for that amount…

    well if i was a lesbian.
    which im not.

    Hey Perez, what is the difference between you holding your hand out for free clothes and getting money from all these advertisers on your web-site and Clay posing for People with his newborn son? NOTHING! So shut your yap and give Clay some kudos for at least being open about his sexuality. Not everyone is comfortable coming out in such an anti-homosexual society like the USA. Did you not stop to think that Clay is in need of money now. He sure isn't getting the record deals anymore, and nappies and baby food don't come cheap, ya know. So yeah Perez, instead of ragging on celebrities for not coming out of the closet, and for taking money for photo ops like this, how about you use your so-called celebrity status and focus on the changes in society and policies that will help these "in the closet" celebrities be more confident about themselves. Okay, yeah?

  40. 40

    This can't be news. The man looks so much like a woman, I can't imagine anyone thought he was straight.

  41. 41

    Clay looks like KD Lang and that baby looks like that little dude that was photographed in Guiness as the smallest man in the world. Yeah, creepy alien Yoda lookin' thing.

  42. D-Bag says – reply to this


    They overpayed by $499,999.99 because you can buy a turkey baster at the Dollar Tree for $.99.

  43. 43

    Forgive me, but that is one fugly baby. It looks just like him and that ain't a good thing!

  44. 44

    Well, I'm looking for my cut because I'm actually encouraging people to LeadTheWayOut. Hey People Magazine, I'll grace your covers for a fraction of the price you paid this wanna-be!!!!


  45. 45

    No Shitto!

  46. 46

    If I got paid 500k there is no way I would be donating to charity

  47. 47

    I adore Clay and never gave a rats butt whether or not he is gay. He has a beautiful son and I'm betting he will be a great Dad.
    Why shouldn't he get paid for the pics. Everyone else that can does and I bet the money will probably go into a trust fund.

    As he use to say " his sexuality is no ones business" and it's NOT so kudos for him coming out.

  48. 48

    Gayken who?

  49. 49

    I think he should give a portion of it to the Claymates, as they must be spending a fortune on Depends since they first heard the "news." The rest should be saved for the extensive psychotherapy his spawn will need.

  50. 50

    That is probably why he had the baby so he could get a good penny for putting the baby on front of a mag and coming out all at the same time. He thinks he's smart but I see past it all! I feel bad for the baby. In 18 yrs. we'll be hearing about him being broke and drunk and whoring out his opinions on his child.

  52. 52

    At first i thought it was really mean when people said that baby looks like an alien. But then my copy of "People" came and….well…. he kind of does. Clay is a total poophead in that article! 'Guaranteeing' that he was mocked more as a kid than his kid will be? Way to think about your kid first! And the pix of Clay inside made me want to apologize to Michael Jackson. I have nooo idea what Aiken has had done, but his face just scared me!

    Re: LuluLaRue – Ah, that ain't right - kd is way hotter!

    I remember when my Mom came in my room once and i was watching an interview with Ms. Lang - The Mom said "WHO is that HANDSOME man?!" :-D
