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.
