On Thursday, the Internet was buzzing about multi-talented Clay Aiken. His name and information about him could be found in many different categories. It seems this young man is creating a buzz all over the Internet.
Clay’s name was linked with Dee Snider. Dee’s newest album drops next Tuesday and the reviews are beginning to pop up. The album titled Dee Does Broadway, is filled with familiar songs and features many singers in duets with the Twisted Sister star.
One of the first reviews to reach the Internet is on The Dallas Voice.com and is very positive. I loved what they said about Dee’s duet with Clay Aiken:
I waited with anticipation for track 8, “Luck Be a Lady Tonight.” Teaming with Clay Aiken, this is the musical equivalent of The Twilight Zone. The song starts off gently only to screech into high gear. The juxtaposition is a fun one. Aiken clearly wins in the slower intro, but he holds his own against
Snider’s shrill vocals. Aiken can actually belt out a heavy metal tune and sounds in the vein of Ozzy Osbourne or Don Dokken. The potential that this song could have been a train wreck is easily dismissed and it turns out to be the best track on the album.
Congratulations to Dee and Clay. I can’t wait to hear the song on Tuesday. To read the entire article about Dee Does Broadway, click DALLASVOICE.

Cast members from the Tony and Drama Desk-nominated Broadway musical Newsies will join the previously reported recording star Clay Aiken and Tony nominee Montego Glover at Family Equality Council’s Night at the Pier celebration in New York City on Tuesday, May 8.
The event will feature Broadway-themed performances in honor of the 30th anniversary of Family Equality Council – the national organization that connects, supports and represents the one million parents in the U.S. who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT).
Aiken is currently featured on NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice. He is perhaps best known for his appearances on FOX’s American Idol, and was seen on Broadway in Monty Python’s Spamalot, playing the role of Sir Robin. Glover received at Tony nomination for her performance as Felicia Farrell in Memphis.
I certainly wish I could be at this wonderful event. I always love to hear Clay sing and I would love to hear some of the music from Newsies.
Today, the site published an article titled; Clay Aiken fights against Internet hate
The writer says:
Clay Aiken knows one thing by now after years of dealing with the public’s reaction to his sexuality — how to be comfortable in your own skin, and not give in to some of the bigotry and hate that often comes in your direction based on people with no right to judge.
The writer quoted Clay in the article:
“I occasionally retweet some folks just 2 highlight their ignorance & stupidity. I certainly don’t take offense from [stuff] said by idiots!”
I am glad that CarterMatt wrote about this important topic. Internet bullies and paid bullies are getting out of hand!
