Gay Gayken Comes Clean (or at least "out")

Well, the whole blogosphere is abuzz with the news that the tepidly-talented Clay Aiken has opened his closet door. And what was inside? Frankly, nothing we weren't expecting.

But, my gracious, his fanbase is swirling with the vapors! (Thanks to David Cerda of Handbag Productions for posting that link originally on the Handblog.) Their responses range from support and acceptance to petulant foot-stamping and "I-can't-believe-it's-true-I-hope-it's-just-a-dream." (Now they know how their mothers felt when the rabbit died.)

Such a to-do, for God's sakes. How delusional must people be? And over what? Some guy they're never going to meet? If they're this upset about some obvious fruitcake actually "publishing his recipe," imagine how upset they're all gonna be when we're all living in shacks next to a flooded river with no electricity and they can't turn on their stupid laptops with the Hello Kitty stickers on them and post on his fag-hag comment board. It'll be a Tiger Beat Revolution!

(I'm glad I grew up in the era of Dirk Benedict and the Bay City Rollers. They were drool-worthy, but nobody would have started a riot over them.)

On the other hand, it's nice to have all the Sarah Palin supporters on one message board...

Like Richard Chamberlain's coming out, this just ain't that newsworthy. To be truly newsworthy, he probably should have added "...and I'm buying Morgan Stanley."

It's not newsworthy (or even NEWS, in fact), but Americans will gobble it up like Cheez Whiz because it allows them not to think about what they SHOULD be thinking about. And that's why People magazine is so valuable--it's about "people" (who are nothing like us, but they can't fit that on the masthead).

OMG! next you'll be saying that Doogie Houser is gay. There seems to be a gay type out there that needs to father children so badly that they pretend to be straight until they have knocked up a poor girl and then they leave her in a heap. Myself, I could never get it up for a female but then I'm a freak. ed

Lord it's like the world is a teenage adolescent.

That said, I'm sure in three months he'll be on the cover of People with his new boyfriend, someone from that Gossip Girl show or one of McCain's sons.

Maybe he can tour with Erasure now...
