Clay Aiken won’t talk to gay magazine.

Clay Aiken won’t talk to gay magazine.
Clay Aiken won’t talk to a gay magazine, his publicist told a columnist for a gay magazine. In Next magazine, Matt Bell writes, “We tried to get an interview with the sexually ambiguous pop star … but his publicist told us he’d ‘never talk to a gay magazine!'” So why would Clay’s publicist do something like this, especially if he’s straight and as compassionate as his fans say he is? This would, of course, having nothing to do with this earlier Gossiplist report: “John D is Clay’s stylist and hairdresser and there have been rumors about them for months, maybe even a year or so. He’s not even officially on Clay’s current tour but he still manages to show up at several venues with him.” “John D” refers to John Dahlstrom, who served as stylist for American Idol and the “A Clay Aiken Christmas” special.
