Truth Rules

A blog for fans of Clay Aiken. It may take a while but in the end, truth will win out over lies. Keep it clean, no threats ... and if I don't like what you say I own the delete key.

Talk of the Town


Shock and Awe!

Local reporter for the FOX station in Houston reporting live from the Kodak summarized the evening with this quote: "Hands-down the favorite reaction from the 33 media crews watching the live show.......Clay Aiken! "

PEOPLE: "But the biggest show-stoppers were Clay Aiken, who debuted a jaw-dropping new hipster hairdo, and Prince, who performed two songs solo before an ecstatic audience. "

Titanium! That's what it takes to parody yourself. As one fan put it, "Clay just let us know he can be mocked, made fun of and take all the crap thrown at him and he is still standing and back better than ever. A royal up yours to the haters and slime in front of a TV audience of 200 million people."

...and another fan found this quote appropriate.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." ...Ghandi

I really do hope "Back For More" is on Clay's new CD.

JP, it appears that Clay gives about as much credence to any of your suggestions as he's given to you personally so far. On a scale from 1 to 10, you are a minus 9 on his scale of important things.

It was interesting to watch the haters spin Clay's appearance last night...almost as if they had it scripted.

Every lie, insult and criticism directer toward Clay over the past 5 months were all wrapped up in Michael's impersonation.

Then Clay appeared: tall, handsome, calm and cool, with his head held high...redefined, saying this is who I really am, a classy professional, and unafraid of you, the tabloids or any gossip or lies you wish to spew.

With the added knowledge that Michael is a functioning autistic, of course Clay would do this...with pleasure.

I call this a great, big backfire moment for the haters. But they won't admit it or give up. Obsessing about Clay Aiken is the highlight of their boring life. And I can understand that for the gay guys. Clay is so hot, of course, they want him to be one of them. Sorry, Charlie...

Wow, I didn't realize Michael was autistic. That was such an incredible moment and Clay definitely made Michael's life by being the kind, gracious human being he is. Whether you agree with the new look or not there is no denying that Clay is a STAR in every sense of the word....and he proved that last night by simply stepping on that stage and not saying a word. He just is.....

I was checking the viewed numbers on You Tube. There's one video of Clay on AI5 that has over 33,000 views - and that's just in 24 hours. (This one the video was viewed more than highest viewed videos for Taylor and Katherine combined.)

Two days later and the buzz continues.

The Today Show had Michael Sandecki on for an interview about his duet with Clay.

Lucky Michael. At the AI5 after party it was said Clay spent 15 minutes talking to Michael before Clay left with his group.

Michael's in NY and on Inside Edition too. He's thrilled.

Clay told Inside Edition he enjoyed being on AI and he's thrilled for Michael.

Ahhhh, JP see how it's done. You've been trying for 5 months now to get Clay's attention and NADDA. Don't have to make up sleazy lies and stories (but I'm sure someone is right behind you prodding you along) all you need to be is a sincere nerd. Now look, this Michael gets his 15 mins of fame and then some; probably will make a little bit of money too for being a sincere human being. Oh yeah, and mainstream media has picked up Michael's story. JP maybe will you get noticed in the media when then take you out shackled in hand cuffs from your barracded house.

Did you check out PH's latest blog? Would you believe it's complimentary?

And a great new montage - "What A Feeling"

There's another one there, too, about loving his new look...of course, I'm not sure I trust him to really be always feels like the only reason he is is because it reinforces what he already thinks...

When I first read this I thought Polly was telling people to go to the other blog. Good thing I read it twice. :)

PH sincere......that will be the day. Definitely ulterior motives at work there. Pigs will fly before I ever believe that guy has a sincere bone in his body after all the angst he has caused for Clay. Nope, not buying it.
