Clay Aiken – Still In Awe!

It was another amazing day for Clay Aiken and his fans.  I am still in awe of the amount of PR that has surrounded Clay Aiken and Celebrity Apprentice.  For the third day in a row, Clay has had hundreds of mentions on Google.  I just checked Google and they list 107,000 articles about Clay on Celebrity Apprentice.  YIKES!!!

I really enjoyed reading the article on Mashable Entertainment.   Brian Anthony Hernandez wrote an interesting article about Celebrity Apprentice and the use of social networking.  The following is a clip of what he had to say:

Trump and NBC producers likely monitor each contestant’s online sentiment — so fan comments on social sites and message boards also could sway who Trump fires when the season begins Feb. 12. Producers might want to keep contestants that incite significant online buzz, which may translate to better TV ratings.

NBC revealed the cast Wednesday, but searches for Celebrity Apprentice topics are trending high Thursday on Google.  Singer Clay Aiken, who finished second on American Idol‘s season two in 2003, was the fifth hottest-searched topic on Google on Thursday, with Celebrity Apprentice at number 15. Whether that means Aiken is an early fan favorite is yet to be seen. Google searchers could just be looking up who Aiken is.

So…I think we all need to be on top of the social media bandwagon.  Twitter and Facebook are an important part of our support of Clay.

Please read Brian’s entire article at MASHABLE.

I clicked on Gather (anything Hollywood) and I was ready to get mad.  The article by Henrietta Tan was titled:  What Happened To You, CLAY AIKEN?  As I read, I calmed down.  I can almost forgive her headline after reading this comment:

Maybe he’s put on weight, maybe he’s had a little surgical help…but as far as looking good is concerned, we really like how Clay’s “evolved…

CBS News ran an article titled: Clay Aiken’s National Inclusion Project to benefit from his “celebrity Apprentice” appearance.  Now this is the important message of the entire 3 days!

(CBS) “American Idol” runner-up Clay Aiken will be competing in the coming season of “Celebrity Apprentice” to raise money for his National Inclusion Project, a charity he started to help kids with disabilities be mainstreamed in programs for children….Aiken’s foundation recently benefited from a Champions Gala that raised more than $500,000 from the 500 people who attended the event in downtown Raleigh.

Please visit this site.  We need to make sure they get lots of “props” for writing on the important part of the story!!  CBS

Just one more bit of news… Be sure and visit the updated FaceBook page for Clay Aiken.  It’s a music page and you can play Clay’s music right off the site.  I hope we can give the site lots of hits and plays, especially for Bring Back My Love.  CLAYS FACEBOOK

On a personal note…thanks to so many of you who contacted me personally or with comments about yesterdays post.  Clay Aiken fans are best in the world!!  I am fine.  I am excited and I refuse to let the negative people get me down.  Taking a few hours away from the crazy people certainly helps.  Many times when a person initiates a negative message or difficult attitude, they are trying to trigger a response from you. When we react, we are actually giving them what they want. Let’s stop the cycle of negative snowballing and sell them short on what they’re looking for; don’t bother responding.

I will end this post with a great picture…I am glad Clay has released this wonderful photo.

  6. I've reread these articles several times. So glad to see that Clay was #5 most Googled! Wonder if he is wearing the same black leather jacket in the photo above (pointing) that he wore when taping the PBS special.

  7. So far at this moment, I am the ONLY person who has left a comment on the CBS article. It does take a bit of doing to sign up so you can comment, but everything worth doing takes some effort, right?

  8. "Many times when a person initiates a negative message or difficult attitude, they are trying to trigger a response from you. When we react, we are actually giving them what they want. Let’s stop the cycle of negative snowballing and sell them short on what they’re looking for; don’t bother responding." I agree 100%. No good can come from engaging those types of people. When I did a Google search the other day the CBS article was right at the top of the list of articles. I was so pleased to see that and I sure hope a lot of casual fans saw that article too.

  9. Love the new picture. Can't get enough information. So happy to see him trending again. Hurry up Feb.
