Clay Aiken – Good, Bad, Cunning and Strong!

This post is coming to you from 2,580 miles from my home.  Early Thursday morning, I flew from California to New York.  I am here and ready to have a great time seeing Clay as a judge one night and a narrator another night. I imagine that Clay will be amazing in both roles.

The problem with long plane rides is that I am almost asleep as I sit here at my computer.  I had to get up at 4AM to get my flight…add the time difference and even a piece of cheesecake from Juniors didn’t wake me up!!

BUT……….there is fun news so I will do what I can. Hopefully, there will be no glaring spelling mishaps!!

It seems that Donald Trump was a guest on the Today Show, Thursday morning.  The following is the paragraph that accompanies the video:

Video on Donald Trump tells TODAY’s Matt Lauer that he’ll do whatever he can to help Mitt Romney in his presidential race, and also discusses the latest season of “Celebrity Apprentice,” on which, he says, Clay Aiken is coming on surprisingly strong and nasty.

Nasty??  Clay Aiken??  Well,I love the words a fan found that the dictionary has listed under Nasty:  Tasty, Good, Bad, Cunning and Strong!!!! 

So…nasty sounds good to me!! And here is the video:

Did you see the article at Rolling Stone?  The following is what they had to say about Clay.

Clay Aiken

Age: 33

Claim To Fame: The doe-eyed North Carolina-native welled America’s hearts with his beatific balladry on Season Two of American Idol. (He ultimately took second-place to Southern big-boy Ruben Studdard). Aiken has since released six full-length albums, performed on Broadway and after coming out as openly gay in 2008, has become an outspoken activist for gay rights.

What To Expect: Don’t let the fact that he sings like a mermaid misguide you; if preview clips are any indication, this ginger-topped crooner’s got some bite behind that boyish charm. How he matches up with The Donald, however, might be a different story.

This week’s Entertainment Weekly rated Celebrity Apprentice as #4 in The Top 10 Must See List!


Donald Trump always says that this season’s cast of Celebrity Apprentice is “the best ever”, but with Clay Aiken, Lisa Lampanelli and George Takei (pictured), we’re inclined to believe that he’s right!

So sorry that I have somehow misplaced the link to this so you could see the entire article.  Maybe I will find it after a bit of sleep.

Did you have a chance to see the latest video of Clay and Kelly singing together the other night?  The performance is great and it is so much fun to see how excited the audience was when they saw Clay enter the stage.    ENJOY!!
