Nobody can ever say that Clay Aiken is boring! With Clay, there is always something to talk about!
On Friday night, over 700 Clay fans signed into the Clay Aiken Official Fan Club to join Clay’s Live Video Chat. Despite the late Friday night time and the celebration of Yom Kipper, Clays fans were there to hear Clay chat about everyday life and the events that might be in his future.
Dressed casually in a “hoodie” from Minnesota, Clay shared that he was not even wearing socks!
Who knew that Clay:
- Can’t drive a stick shift car
- Hates mowing the lawn
- Slept through the earthquake.
- Had Frosted Mini Wheats with strawberries for breakfast.
Besides the cute chatter, Clay also shared that he had seen Hannah Waddingham in her role as the Wicked Witch in the musical, The Wizard of Oz. Clay said that Hannah was the best thing in the entire show and gave her a grade of A+. For more information on Hannah, check out the August 27th article here at CANN. What an amazing lady.
When talking about the 2011 Emmy Awards, Clay admitted that he jumped up and down for “10 minutes” when Margo Martindale won her Emmy last month. He related that he did a reading with her in NY a few years ago and that have stayed friends. He loved watching her on the show, Justified.
Clay also said that he was pleased that Melissa McCarthy received an Emmy for her role on the CBS sitcom, Mike and Molly. Do you remember when she was on The Gilmore Girls?
When asked if he had a celebrity “crush”, Clay thought for a few moments and finally said that he probably had a slight crush on Seth McFarlene. Being the up-to-date person I am, I have to admit I had to search google to learn about McFarlene.
McFarlene is a man of many hats. He is an animator, writer, comedian, producer, actor, singer, voice actor and a director. He is best known for creating the animated shows, Family Guy and American Dad. He is currently working on his feature-length film that is scheduled for release in 2012.
Clay ended the chat with some exciting news. He will be performing an original song at the up-coming Gala in December. He said that Decca planned to release the song to the radio in January. He revealed that his part of the recording is done and that Jaymes is working on it now and it will be submitted very soon.
Clay was very serious when he said that NO clack would be allowed at the Gala. The new song is just for the attendees and no one will hear the song again until it is released to the radio. He even said that there would be lots of eyes watching to make sure the song is not recorded.
Reading the Clay message boards after the chat has been really fun. Everyone is excited and can’t seem to wait to hear Clay’s new song. I wonder how many Gala tickets will be sold this weekend?
Are you attending the National Inclusion Project Gala in December? Do you think the new song is a stand-alone song or do you think it is tied to another project? Are you as excited as I am??
If you missed the wonderful video chat, be sure and see it at the OFC. Repeats of the video were posted within an hour. Whoever came up with the idea of Video Chat should get a medal!! A big thank you to all who put it together and to Clay for sharing an hour of his life with your fans!!
