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.

What's my name?

I have no respect for justice.

I maim without killing.

I break hearts and ruin lives.

I am cunning and malicious and gather strength with age.

The more I am quoted the more I am believed.

I flourish at every level of society.

My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me because I have no name and no face.

To track me down is impossible. The harder you try, the more elusive I become.

I am nobody's friend.

Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same.

I topple governments and ruin marriages.

I ruin careers and cause sleepless nights, heartache and indigestion.

I spawn suspicion and generate grief.

I make innocent people cry in their pillows.

Even my name hisses.

Rock Star Supernova

Last night on Rock Star Supernova they showed some clips of interviews with the contestants. Dilana sort of screwed up with her interview and said some things about other contestants she shouldn't have. Dave Navarro called her on it.

He then got to talking about how they all have targets on their backs when it comes to the press and, referring to his own problems at the moment, he said his target was pretty big. The other three guys, Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted, and Gilby Clarke agreed with him about all being targets.

As soon as the radio stations start playing Clay Aiken's new single it won't be too surprising if some of the shock jock DJs use Clay for target practice.

So forewarned is forearmed. Be prepared and develop a think skin and try not to let it get to you. If Clay can ignore it so can we.

Photo chopping

LONDON - The Reuters news agency said Monday it has cut its ties with a Beirut-based freelance photographer who it found had manipulated two photographs from the ongoing fighting in Lebanon. It also removed all 920 pictures by the photographer from its database. Altered images prompt photographer’s firing

Even the LA Times Director of Photography was fooled. L.A. Times Photographer Fired Over Altered Image So for all those swearing that photoshopping doesn't happen, you are so wrong.

'Charlotte Observer' Photographer Fired for Doctoring Picture “Accuracy is among our most sacred journalistic values,” Thames wrote in the editorial. “That goes for the photographs, as well as the words, that we publish.”

"The National Enquirer, despite recent excesses, did not invent faked photographs." And this was before Photoshopping made it easy. Positive/Negative

Gotta luv the press

It's. Not. A. Competition!

Four freaking pages of Google hits showing the press clips of the "competition" between Clay Aiken and Ruben Studdard. AGAIN!!! So RCA decides to release their new albums a week apart and were back to rehashing the 2003 release of their debut albums.

These two guys are friends. Good friends. They are probably laughing their butts off over this new round of press. I'm sure they saw it coming. When they went to dinner with Kelly Clarkson in the beginning of July they all probably had a good laugh over what was bound to be printed.

Clay's market is Pop/Rock; Ruben's is Urban. Two entirely different segments of the music listening public. least it's getting their names out there. So it can't be all bad. Once again, the press proves how easy it is to make up stories and run with them. Gotta luv the press.
