Breaking News: Clay Aiken To State The Obvious

Aiken at a 2006 Christmas tour appearance in W...Image via WikipediaRead it from Reuters: "After years of dodging questions, former American Idol singer Clay Aiken will acknowledge he is a gay man in an interview with People magazine set to run on its web site Wednesday, according to media reports."

Shocking.

By which I mean, the opposite of shocking.

But that's okay. In the past, I've given the Gayken a hard time occasionally, especially regarding his duplicitious sexuality. So it's only fair that I now celebrate his newfound truthfulness, and welcome him into the bright rainbow sunshine of an open and honest life. Hopefully, he'll be able to inspire young gay people or some shit. And it's not like he'll lose his "Claymaniac" fan base, which is almost exclusively made up of fortysomething housewives. They loved Liberace, didn't they? And he was a poofter par excellence.

Clay is back in Spamalot on Broadway these days, so please...stop by and say hi. Or "hello sistergirl". Whatever seems appropriate. (And one other thing, Clay: just because you're out doesn't mean we'll sleep with you. Lose the pompadour hair and the shellacked base makeup, and we'll take it from there.)
