Clay Aiken Issues Rambling, Self-Righteous Apology to Adam Lambert

by at . Comments

During a rambling blog entry - which included digs at bloggers for following his words more closely than the economy or the welfare of children around the globe - Clay Aiken sort of apologized to Adam Lambert for disparaging remarks he posted earlier in the week.

Many Lambert fans have taken Clay to task for referring to this season's runner-up as "contrived, awful and frightening."

In response, Aiken writes:

If only many [bloggers] took the time to pay attention to important things like the US economy and the welfare of the world's children. But… nah… I could blog about that type of stuff anytime and most wouldn't think twice, but let me say something that they can pick and choose quotes and misinterpret me… and it's showtime! I never assumed my opinion mattered so much! I guess I may have been wrong...

Since my previous blog got dissected like a biology lab frog, i suppose I should clarify and even retract some of what I wrote. I am sure that some were upset by my choice of words describing my opinion of a performance I heard from Adam Lambert.

I hope no one actually believed that blood truly poured forth from my ears when I heard him. I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard. Any performer hopes that their music will appeal to all people, but no singer realistically expects it to.

I definitely don't want to stoop to the level of so many negative freaks on the internet… so, I do apologize to Adam for my colorful (and negative) choice of words. I hope he can forgive me. I imagine he doesn't give a d---! God knows he shouldn't.

Clay Aiken thinks everyone (except for himself, apparently) should focus on world poverty instead of American Idol.


You people made him the self righteouss beast he's become. Go on a cruise and sing in the lounge where you belong. Hater!!


Clay's opinion about anything is worth as much as flies boo-boo. He'll be out of the lime-light soon. So who cares what he thinks.


Check out the video ad for "The Kris Allen Tolerance & Rehabilitation Center," dedicated to helping Adam Lambert fans cope with his recent loss, LoL: Post it up and/or share it with your friends!


Clay's apology? WHAT IN THE WORLD WAS THAT? It didnt seem like an apology at all. He even has the nerve (still) to criticize the fans of Adam...that we do not have more important things on our minds? Shup up, Clay Aiken. You are the one that looks so scary and frightening! Gosh, look at yourself first before criticizing people...


Clay is a bitter jealous jerk. He said in the original blog that he only watches the show for 1 minute each season. So how did he see enough of Adam's performance in 1 minute to form an opinion? How did he see enough of the AI show to form this negative opinion in that 1 minute. He said he never saw Kris sing but Kris should be the winner. Clay lies constantly and he has lost most of his fans.


Clay was referring to Lambert's version of Ring of Fire not the man himself. Love how you manage to take everything out of context! While I personally do not believe he owed an apology to anyone because he is entitled to his opinion I applaud him for his maturity in doing so. I also will state he was TOTALLY ACCURATE ON ALL COUNTS! Mr. Aiken did not state that everyone should focus on world poverty instead of AI, He was referring to bloggers such as yourself, who LOVE to DISTORT EVERYTHING TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.


I don't understand, either, why you have a problem. Everyone makes mistakes. I think it was a good thing for Clay to admit his choice of wording was poor (even though I agreed with every word). And why is it "self-righteous"? Sounds like he called it pretty accurately to me.


I have no beef with his apology. Don't understand why you do.

Clay Aiken Quotes

I cannot raise a child to lie or to hide things. I wasn't raised that way, and I'm not going to raise a child to do that.

Clay Aiken

I have no idea if he'll be gay or straight. It's not something I'll have anything to do with, or that he'll have anything to do with. It's already probably up inside the code there ... No matter what the situation you're in, if you're raised in a loving environment, that's the most important thing.
