Clay Aiken Takes a Broadway Break

Clay Aiken Takes a Broadway Break

Clay Aiken finishes up his work day, performing on the Broadway show Spamalot, and then tries to avoid the press as he goes home on Wednesday.

American Idol‘s Simon Cowell, who when told Clay Aiken had revealed he was gay, jokingly responded, “Wow, that’s a shock. It’s like being told Santa Clause isn’t real — unbelievable.”

“Good for him. If he said it, it’s the right thing for him. Good for him,” Simon told Extra.

When asked about fan reaction, Simon said, “I don’t think anyone cares. Let’s face it. It’s 2008. You know, who cares?”

“No, I don’t know him well enough, and I think I’d be the last person on Earth he’d call,” Simon said, referring to rumors he was asked to be the godfather of Clay‘s son, Parker.

    RIGHT ” SETH ” , NUMBER # 3……No hateful comments from Simon is nice and I’m sure appreciated by Clay……..I believe he will make a wonderful father, and no-one should judge him…Clay has alot of talent, and has come quite far since American Idol days……….He is one of the lucky ones…Like Simon says, ” WHO CARES “?..
