  • - Clay tells Access Hollywood: private life isn't your business:
    For Clay Aiken, his private life is exactly that – private.

    Asked about the frequent speculation about his personal relationships – in particular, his sexuality – the second-season American Idol runner-up, 29, tells Access Hollywood's Billy Bush in an interview to air Friday: "I think for the most part ... people who are living in Omaha or in Charlotte or wherever, they don't want stuff like that pushed in their face.

    "I don't think that that's necessary, and that's also not what I'm here for."

    Still, the Raleigh, N.C.-born Aiken – whose new album, On My Way Here, arrives May 6 – says he's had a rough time dealing with the public interest the surrounds him.

    "It can be difficult, especially initially," he says. "I think when you get into anything and you're not used to people scrutinizing this that or the other, it bothers you."
  • MSNBC/Access Hollywood -
    Clay Aiken has no interest in taking his love life public.

    During a promotional appearance for his upcoming album, “On My Way Here,” and his Broadway show “Spamalot,” the “American Idol” Season 2 runner-up told “The Billy Bush Show” it’s only the media who cares whether he is gay or straight.
  • All Headline News -
    "American Idol" second season runner-up Clay Aiken has had a successful career since leaving the reality singing show. The singer, who is now starring in "Spamalot" on Broadway, says he still isn't used to people wanting to know so much about his personal life.

    Aiken, whose new album "On My Way Here" is due out May 6, appears on Friday's "Access Hollywood." Interviewer Billy Bush asked Aiken about the frequent speculation on his sexuality, and Aiken replied by saying, "I think for the most part... people who are living in Omaha or in Charlotte or wherever, they don't want stuff like that pushed in their face."

  • Anew and Afresh - Clay has "a genuine heart for service to others":
    Although I personally think Clay Aiken is a cut above most in the talent department, there are a lot of good singers out there. And although Clay's particular looks are what floats my boat (except when someone gets after him with a flat-iron!), there are other good-looking guys around. But the ones who put pure talent, good looks, and charisma (which Clay Aiken has in spades) together with a genuine heart for service to others...well, those are a treasure.
