writer pits Clay Aiken versus Morrissey, asking, “Who’s rock’s greatest celibate?”
In the most unlikely yet perfectly obvious musical comparison, the Detroit Metro Times asks, “Who’s Rock’s Greatest Celibate?”—American Idol 2’s Clay Aiken or Morrissey? The subhead says it all, really: “What’s the real measure of a man a sex-shunning guy who sits alone reading Oscar Wilde or an adenoidal virgin who belts the hell outta Neil Sedaka songs?” Addressing the pop stars’ sexuality, Serene Dominic writes, “By keeping everyone guessing about his sexuality (by feigning he hasn’t got one), Clay stumbled onto a great marketing tool that abstinence makes the fans grow fonder.” Dominic also addresses other pressing questions about the pair, such as, “Who’s the lonelier-looking ‘Cover Star’?”, “Who’s more down with Jesus?”, and “Who gives the female fans more false hope?”
