AMERICAN IDOL! Katherine or Taylor?! - Page 6

post #101 of 119
Yes, that's why I was trying to be sensitive, I could tell you are a fan! I am too!!! IMO, he's the best voice AI has ever had.

I promise I didn't and don't mean anything derogatory by my comments. I surely never intend to offend! But to me, calling him a homosexual isn't a bad thing? That's just my opinion.

I loooove Clay. I don't think he's gay- he has said he isn't. He may be way in the closet, though, I dunno... doesn't matter to me either way.

I did read on another board that Michael (the guy that sang with Clay) was a high functioning autistic. Who knows...but that's one thing Clay is passionate about....inclusion. He was very gracious & humble to sing with that guy. Clay has a heart of gold!

LINK, PLEASE! My bff loves Clay Aiken, & her dd is autistic- we fell in love with him when he was on AI. She swore that the kid who sang with Clay was on the autism spectrum- I would love to have a link to send to her. He seemed SO thrilled. I loved it.

I think he was a special need teacher before AI, wasn't he? I agree, he's seems like a kind wonderful person!

AMEN sister!! Naw....being gay isn't what gets my goat....just the filthy rumors. I hate tabloid trash!

Clay has said he's not gay. I believe him.

But, I just have to say....his new look is HAWT!!! OMG....I nearly fell off the couch when he came on stage!!

Lot's of people are lovin' his new look!

I read it on the Clayboard.....I asked for more info on it too....my DS is on the spectrum. Wish I knew.

I keep watching the performance over & over.....that kid was sooooo excited! He even cried....Ryan Seacrest said in an interview that he was shaking 15 min after the performance!

: I always thought the teaching world lost a good one. Although I know he makes up for it, ie: UNICEF. & BTW We love Clay around here too!

LOL, I nearly fell off the couch when I saw him, too, but not because I thought he looked hot! :

You are in the minority then! The majority of the reactions I've read & heard have been positive!

I like the new look.


I have seen Kat on some interviews type shows and you know...she seems very stuck up. I like her even less than I did before. It took me awhile to pin point why I didn't like her when the show was on. But I think that it is that she has this air about her. This "I am so pretty and boy can I sing" type air. To me she is just another pretty face that can sing. She is not original. A dime a dozen. I love that although Taylor knows that he has talent, he does not seem to have the attitude that he is better than others. He still seems like a nice guy. Kat is just another one of those popular girls that bump your shoulder in the halls of high school as they mow past you so that they can gab with their friends about how cool they are and how uncool everyone else is.

IMHO

I'm having flashbacks....I'm so glad those days are over.

I do not like the new look. AT. ALL.

Not only did I think the hair was just plain weird, it is too far removed from the Clay that we knew and fell in love with. IMO, part of his charm was his red-headed freckled glasses wearing geekiness. I did like his original AI transformation, he just looked a little more polished, but the other night, I didn't recognize him until he started singing. Really.

Was his hair black or was it just my screen???

There were a few ladies that didn't like the look too....don't feel bad! I think Clay has so many different looks....but this one just blew me away!

His hair looks like a dark brown with some reddish tones in it. I'm very tempted to post some yummy pics of him....but this thread is off topic already!

Maybe we should have our own thread? I feel like the biggest oddball...a crunchy Claymate! :

ETA: Nice pics there! Yea...I know what you mean. That guy just brings the biggest smile to my face!
