Clay Aiken – Hollywoodland

It is always fun to read positive articles, especially if they are about Clay Aiken.

Tommy Lightfoot Garrett writes an Internet blog titled Highlight Hollywood.  Each week he pens an article called This Week In Hollywoodland.

On January 5th, Garrett reported on the new contestants on Celebrity Apprentice.  The original report was accurate and he used the CD cover from ON My Way Here.  He must have gotten some great feedback from this article because on January 8th, Garrett wrote another article about Clay and his supportive fans.  He said:

This week in Hollywoodland, it’s all about the music, acting and entertainment. Or is it? Jack Wagner is about to serenade a “B&B” leading lady, musical icon and “American Idol” great Clay Aiken’s fans are very supportive of his bid for the top spot on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice” starring Donald Trump and lets not forget that there is a lot more news in Hollywood, and our favorite shows and even some film productions have restarted for the New Year. Plus, here’s all the gossip this week that made Hollywood buzz and fans around the world seemed captivated by; including actor and singer Justin Timberlake popping the question….

…When Highlight Hollywood reported last week that handsome and talented singer Clay Aiken would be on Donald Trumps “Celebrity Apprentice” which airs on NBC, we had no idea there would be such a magnificent reaction. When you work in the media, you sometimes hit raw nerves and end up being attacked by people who feel as if you are being unfair (which Highlight Hollywood) strives never to do, or that you are not giving enough attention to a certain celebrity or TV show or film. We try to focus on everyone, who has something positive going on in their lives, and we also hit hard news. We may be a bit more tough in our reportage on politics, but there’s a simple reason for that. Politicians control our futures to some extent, and they are all paid by taxpayers. So, there is no need to allow them to use the media for propaganda, as they tend to do on Fox News and MSNBC. But it is very rare that a celebrity has such a huge following, and yet their fans are so genuinely gracious, kind and supportive, generous in spirit and all around awesome! Clay Aiken has such fans.

His fans embraced his decision to appear on “Celebrity Apprentice” and they all believe as we do, that he’ll be the winner of the competition. Donald Trump is a great showman, even though sometimes his show is a bit overdone when he panders to people who have ill will against others, and it’s a shame he uses The White House as a way to garner attention and get ratings, when we face so many serious issues. But it’s great when he picks someone as charismatic, talented and genuinely kind as Clay Aiken to appear as a contestant on his highly-rated series “Celebrity Apprentice,” which thanks to Clay’s wonderful fans will be even higher rated than any previous season. Thanks Aiken fans for showing Highlight Hollywood and the world, that you back the right guy, and that you all have as much class he Clay does! You do him proud!

  1. Thank you so much for all your hard work and the links to all the marvelous Clay coverage. I haven't had time even to follow them all up, much less find them all, but with this newsletter I know they will be there when I get the chance. I so appreciate your efforts and so do the fans I forward them to!! (Don't know why they don't just sign up with you, maybe because we love to discuss the subject matter that you make so interesting, from Clay to NY, lol.)

  2. It is amazing how much publicity Clay is getting because of Celebrity Apprentice. I loved the TV Guide interview and the new article is wonderful.

    Loved the sketch by LCV.
