Clay Aiken – “And The Beat Goes On..”

And the Beat Goes On and On and On…

Well, in the case of Clay Aiken…the News Goes On and On and On!!!

This will be a quick post today as I am leaving for an extended week-end in Southern California. What a time to be out of town. There is so much Clay news out there.

KTLA, a popular TV station in Los Angeles , ran a great interview with George Takei. He talks about many things, including his stint on Celebrity Apprentice. It is a very interesting interview. There is no mention of Clay Aiken, but it is a good picture of the “real” George. You can see the video at: KTLA

Starry Constellation also published an interview with George…the following are the Clay Aiken mentions:

Q) George, last week when you were on the show and you were being the announcer for the medieval show they kind of presented you as a little bit incompetent about reading which seems to contradict who you really are. Do you feel that was a fair portrait of you on – for that show or do you think that was a little bit misleading about how competent you were?

George: Well, you know, I’m an actor and we actors when we’re in front of an audience don’t like to have the script with us. So I tried to get the flow – the very gist of what I’m supposed to do up there. But of course there’s that other thing of having to give cues to the people in the light booth. And so when I was kind of improvising along the outlines of the script the people in the booth were finding it difficult to get – find their cues. So Clay, dear Clay, he made a big thing out of that and he went on and on. Clay tends to be a little bit of a chatterbox critic. And so that got played up a little bit bigger than it really was. I decided all right, the time is limited; we won’t have enough time to memorize so I will read it. And I’ll read it like a medieval herald. So what we did was we scotch-taped all the pages of the script together and made it into a scroll and made the herald reading off of an ancient scroll.

From Out Magazine…Clay came in at the 5th position of the Top 100 MOST ELIGIBLE BACHELORS:

Who is the gay man that most people would want to date?

Although the list contained billionaires and fashion moguls, it turns out that the power of TV still trumps it all. For the past week we’ve asked our readers to sort through our list of the 100 Most Eligible Gay Bachelors (view the SLIDESHOW here) and vote for the men they most wanted to date.

Yes, it churned up some controversy (like what actually constitutes a BACHELOR these days when same-sex marriage is legal in some states but not others) and spawned a few Twitter campaigns. Fans—both male and female—came out in droves and voted Glee’s heartthrob Chris Colfer as our No. 1 bachelor of desire in our second annual poll. “He’ gorgeous inside and out!” one reader proclaimed.

“As the mom of a gay teen who looks up to Chris Colfer as a role model, I can’t express enough how thankful I am for him. I would love to have a son-in-law of his caliber someday, to match with my equally amazing son. Chris is number one in our home, and we look forward to following his career,” wrote another.

1. Chris Colfer

2. Zachary Quinto
3. Nick Adams
4. Christopher Rice
5. Clay Aiken
