Clay Aiken & Stolen Moments

For Clay Aiken, the price of celebrity is having your private moments of silliness stolen and spread all over the internet. After a four year run the cast of Spamalot performed their final show on January 11th. After the show they all headed to a party where a photo booth gave Clay, his fellow cast members and friends the opportunity to pose for silly photos. Just a fun thing to do at a party.

Someone stole the photos Clay took and posted them on the web. We've all seen it before. No celebrity is safe from prying eyes. From Princess Diana to Alec Baldwin to Britney Spears, they all have been the victims of having their privacy invaded. Depending on the level of celebrity, bloggers have a field day with their comments, and honestly, some just make up stories designed to get hits for their blogs.

This is part of a post on one of the Clay fan sites. It may or may not be true.

"My daughter, not a Clay fan, is an executive with a huge pharmaceutical company and they had a large company event last night. One of the highlights was THE EXACT photo booth used at the Spam after-party. She was talking to the photographer who runs it and he told her he did all the big parties in NY including the Spam party. Told her he got shots of Clay Aiken with his boyfriend.My daughter pursued this by telling him her mom was a Claymate. He willingly told her that he released the photos for money and was very proud of himself when he saw them on JustJared and TMZ."
Whoever stole and/or sold these photos is sadly lacking in the morality department. Why shouldn't celebrities have a right to privacy just like the rest of us?

Clay and other celebrities deserve the same rights to privacy as every one else. This was a private party and whoever sold the photos has absolutely no morals.

Unfortunately ethics are no longer followed in the world today. It's a shame those private silly moments were leaked (however they were leaked) to any media source.

Entertainers are people who need down time to be a person and not just an entertainer; however most of the time, that fact is forgotten.

It's a sad state of affairs when a citizen of the United States has their right to privacy takes a backseat to the "right" of a blogger to post the most outrageous things they can make up. These people are not "the press", and if they are the press then God help us...

Some folks say that's 'the price' celebritees pay. I say that is b.s.

Clay Aiken, Britney Spears, Angelina Jolie, ALL celebrities have a right to a private life and what they do in their private life should stay that way - PRIVATE!!

It is sad the celebrities can't have any privacy just to have some laughs with friends. The pictures are funny and goofy, but they should have remained private. Yes, I'm just as guilty as anyone else because I was so glad to see them, but if they had never been stolen, I would not have been worse off, and Clay would not have had a fun evening spoiled.

These photogs do not have any ethics. They are just in it for the bucks.
Very, very sad.

I agree. The privacy of every person at that party was violated, not just Clay.

"The privacy of every person at that party was violated, not just Clay."

Exactly. Hopefully it didn't cause any of the others any grief.

For the love of money, that all it takes now days. Peoples feelings don't matter anymore. I'm just glad to see them having fun as they should be.

We all love seeing pictures of Clay Aiken, either singin, having fun or entertaining BUT this was a complete violation of his privacy and that greatly disturbs me. There must be a point, famous or not, that allows you to have an element of privacy - this was an invasion of it and I hope what goes around comes around for the person/people that leaked these..

It is truly sad that Clay and his fellow cast members and friends couldn't have an evening of fun without it being spoiled by a greedy photographer out to make a buck. It galls me! I sure hope "what goes around comes around!"

Am sure the company that hired this guy after he sold the Spamalot pics would not want its executives' private moments out there either. Thanks for exposing his lack of business ethics, now maybe other potential clients will take note.

How awful that Clay's privacy was invaded like that.

However, Clay has nothing to be ashamed about in those pictures--just good friends goofing off and having fun.

I would normally be of the same voice, however this time, I feel that these pictures being released has done him a huge (though perhaps inadvertent) justice for once.

Still, I am not oblivious to your point..
