We found out today that Clay stuck around after last month's American Idol finale to meet with some of his fans. Here's what a friend of the CB's jenbec4630 said:

It was after the American Idol finale. Everyone comes out and they do interviews, meet with fans ect. And I saw Clay from afar and we just stood there and talked. I dont see him as a celebrity. He's just a nice guy. That danged southern accent rubbed off onto me again though. LOL. I mean, I lived in TX most my life, but I was loosing my accent and then, after talkin to Clay, it was back for the rest of the night. LOL. Clay was very humble and sweet, Taylor said he was actually suprized he won. Very humble as well. I saw Ryan, Simon, and Paula from afar as they went inside the theater. Paula waved hello to everyone, very sweet girl. 🙂 Thats about it. Not much else. JUst had a great night and met some very wonderful, talented people.

Tidbits 6/8

June 8, 2006

  • Sony BMG press release: New Idol singles will benefit American Red Cross.
  • LiveDaily: Clay – Idol success. Another generic Idol mention
  • Charlotte Observer: A comparison of Raleigh and Edmonton, Canada (the two Stanley Cup finalists): "Teen idol ……. Michael J. Fox ………Clay Aiken ………Edmonton. Fox wasn't as objectionable to those who weren't pubescent females."
  • PJ Star: Just be yourself when auditioning for Idol — Clay Aiken looked so pale and sheepish at his initial audition, I half expected him to break into 'Vote No on 13' from 'Revenge of the Nerds 2.' Still, his vocal chops impressed the judges so much that they sent him to Hollywood. That is, on the condition he swap his glasses for contact lenses. And change his hair. And start dressing different. And those shoes, they definitely had to go.
  • U of California Guardian: mentions the E! poll about which celeb you'd like to be stuck with on an island. Clay didn't win…"Who would you rather be stranded on an island with, Clay Aiken or Marilyn Manson?"
  • Check out another Clay blog… Rooting for Clay Aiken
