Celeb Claymates Process the Truth
posted by September 24 at 15:01 PMon
So Clay Aiken has finally come out as a homosexual—an unsurprising admission to everyone in the world, right?
Unfortunately, the only people surprised by the news of Clay’s gayness are his biggest fans—Claymates, they call themselves, and they’ve spent the past seven years believing, trusting, and parroting Aiken’s claims that no way is he gay.
Now the Claymates’ mighty lord and savior has confessed the truth, and my beloved Radar has done the webby legwork—on Clay Aiken fan-sites’ message boards, primarily—to find out how the Claymates are dealing. It’s not pretty.
“This is a gut wrenching day for The ClayNation. Somebody wake me up, I hope it’s a dream.” strollynn63 at The Clayboard
“I’ve cried a river of tears and truthfully do not know where I stand right now. I am envious of those who can take this news and continue to state their unconditional love and support for Clay.” Clayncfan at The Clayboard
If Brokeback Mountain taught us anything (besides “Ang Lee is a genius” and “Heath Ledger was a rare talent”), it’s that the only thing sadder than closet cases are the women duped into loving them. Happy healing, Claymates, and thanks, Radar.
