CNN has put together a great video, complete with interview with Clay and information about On My Way Here, how he deals with the tabloids, and why he likes living in Raleigh. They interviewed Clay when he was making the AOL Sessions videos in May.
Under the video on their website is this title:
Soundcheck: Clay Aiken Former American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken talks about his new album and why he's so guarded about his private life.Denise Quann of CNN states:
Clay Aiken will talk about anything, anything but his personal life, and don't try to read meaning into the lyrics of his new album On My Way Here."Clay says in the interview that the songs are not just about what he has experienced in the last 5 years but about what anyone would experience. The video also shows a 2003 interview where Clay says that the tabloids make assumptions based on the fact that he is a "mama's boy" and that he doesn't sleep around. "Personal business is off limits" because it doesn't really matter what he says, the tabloids will believe what they want. And to Denise's credit, she never pushes him for any personal information.
Bravo CNN for a great interview and video of Clay!
And here are a few screencaps from that video:
