Clay Aiken confirms: 'Yes, I'm gay'

By NEKESA MUMBI MOODY • The Associated Press • September 23, 2008

NEW YORK — Clay Aiken is finally confirming what many people already knew: He’s gay.

The cover of the latest People magazine shows Aiken holding his infant son, Parker Foster Aiken, with the headline: “Yes, I’m Gay.” The cover also has the quote: “I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things.”

The magazine has an interview with Aiken and confirmed that he was on the cover but refused to release the article to The Associated Press until Wednesday.

The baby’s mother is Aiken’s friend and record producer Jaymes Foster.

Aiken, who gained fame as the runner-up on “American Idol” in 2003, rarely addressed the frequent rumors about his sexuality. In an interview with The Associated Press two years ago, he said: “I don’t really feel like I have anybody to answer to but myself and God and the people I love.”

The multiplatinum singer recently released the CD “On My Way Here” and made his Broadway debut this spring in “Monty Python’s Spamalot.”

im not a homophobe. If anything I am just not "out" yet so I take it to the opposite extreme to try and feel less guilty and better about myself.

It's not really a hard contest to beat. Aiken is the definition of fugly. Lance is alright. Neil Patrick Harris FTW!

and the "Ahem" thread makes more sense now that I've read his comments here. I was feeling kinda bad for him, but crush that fucker

Yep. I still say he's the reason a lot of douchery didn't happen. He scared them off.

Not him; but it would bring sexy back.

But seriously, I commend him for doing this. Coming out is a very personal and sometimes tough choice to make. Obviously he had issues with it, most likely still does but he's taking steps in the right direction. He must feel a great big weight lifted off his shoulders. The fact that he's been ridiculed ever since he was on American Idol for his extreme gayness probably made him run into the closet even more.

The fact that he did this because he "cannot raise a child to lie or hide things.” is awesome. I always thought Aiken was cheesy and his music even cheesier but I'm giving praise where it's due.

M Sparks

I've never seen a story that is "not news" on so many levels.

- Not news because who cares about the sexual preference of a total stranger.
- Not news because who cares about some kid who won a reality show 10 years ago.
- Not news because anyone who remembered he existed already knew he was gay.
