Compare:



Apparently, "yep" is the special lesbian way to say yes.

I can't really permalink to some of my comments, so:

erniecu73 said...

He didn't notice that when he stepped into the public light the closet had already burnt around him. Did he?

5:10 PM

Seven Machos said...

Gay celebrities. That's definitely front-page news. Are there gay hairdressers and field hockey players, too? Time for a hard-hitting investigation...

Ann Althouse said...

To permalink to comments you have to insert a c after the #. Weird, but it works.

zeek said...

Clay Aiken is gay? To quote Dennis Miller on Jim J. Bullock's coming out, "I couldn't have been more certain of that if he'd blown me before I came out on stage."

Revenant said...

He's "out"? When was he in?

Aw, thanks!

Ann Althouse said...

Well, what's actually shocking is... no, I can't say it. It would be wrong. Somebody else say it.

Sy said...

There goes his music career ...well the career he had enjoyed.

Simon said...

Equally stunning, shocking, surprising, amazing breaking news.

Beth said...

Lesbian comedians. Rock star lesbians sing "Yes, I Am."

The local paper, which is all Clay and all John Edwards all the time, has not printed this story yet.

As when Richard Chamberlain came out, the most common response will be along the lines of "For whose benefit are you admitting this? Your own? We knew!"

Not that there's anything wrong with that, right?

sonicfrog said...

OMG! Clay Aiken's Gay??????

Wait, who is Clay Aiken?

F15C said...

Clay Aiken gay? Color me shocked.

Now if Clay had squeezed out that cute little baby, that would be front page news.

Time made big changes in the way it delivers its print magazine. The shift in delivery from Monday to Friday wasn’t about cutting costs but adapting to how the audience consumes media, [Time publisher] McCarrick said. “From Monday to Friday, moment-to-moment, the Web site does the heavy lifting,” he said. “On the weekend, then relax and they’re open to spending time with long-form analysis. We didn’t do this because to cut costs, we actually incurred considerable costs for printing and delivery. This brings the magazine closer to the consumer.”

Online advertising revenue currently accounts for about 10 percent of overall revenue at Time and is projected to grow by 57 percent in 2008 and another 35 percent to 40 percent in 2009, according McCarrick.

While McCarrick thinks online will eventually account for 30 percent to 35 percent of overall revenue, “offline revenue is still the big engine.” Still, one medium is leveraged with another. “We’re putting together a multifaceted approach and it’s no longer clean in terms of one media being separate from another.”

I'd go with prongs, not facets.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

I'm in complete disillusionment. In fact, when I first saw that cover and that headline, I thought it was the baby who was coming out as gay.

Ruth Anne Adams said...

So who's his baby-mama? Debbie Rowe?

dr kill said...

Does Clay whats-his name know that Ellen is wearing his shoes?

Zachary Paul Sire said...

Trig Palin is the baby's mother.

knox said...

So who's his baby-mama? Debbie Rowe?


I dunno, who's the female equivalent to David Crosby? Grace Slick? Joan Baez? Boomers, help me out...

carosmama said...

Ann, Ellen used to say "yep" on her sitcom. That's where it came from.

And....knock me over with a feather! Clay Aiken is GAY???!!!!! Who knew?

Freeman Hunt said...

Did he "make" the baby? Because that would be the really surprising thing.

Reminds me of when the president of the student body at my college came out. Someone told me, and I said, "He was in?"
"Yeah, he has a girlfriend."
"He has a girlfriend? That's ridiculous."

Zachary Paul Sire said...

The mother is actually a songwriter from LA named Jaymes. Yes, her name is Jaymes.

Methadras said...

This is shocking, shocking, shocking news. I simply had no idea at all. Oh what shall we do?

ricpic said...

What I wanna know is how did frog Degeneris get butterfly DeRossi?

Michael_H said...

I once owned shoes like Ellen is wearing. During the long-forgotten disco era, I believe. And a matching belt. The ensemble was known as the 'full Cleveland' at the time.

dr kill said...

Shepard Smith wants Clay to come home soon,and all will be forgiven.

Hoosier Daddy said...

Ok, here is a serious question. I always wondered something about gay men like Clay Aiken who look...well like a female. I mean, if you're into guys don't you go for a guy who looks like a guy rather than a guy who looks like a girl? Seems like it defeats the purpose.

blake said...

Dianne Wiest had a baby!


(What horrible, terrible, wrong thing were you going to say, Althouse?)

Palladian said...

Some people want to know the identity of the baby's mother. Huh? She's right there, in the picture, holding the baby! What I want to know is the identity of the father!

Zachary Paul Sire said...

That is just rude!

Clay does not look like a female.

Seven Machos said...

if you're into guys don't you go for a guy who looks like a guy rather than a guy who looks like a girl?

This merely demonstrates that it probably sucks to be gay and look like Clay Aiken.

Trooper York said...

"The mother is actually a songwriter from LA named Jaymes. Yes, her name is Jaymes."

The sperm donor was actually named Bartles. They got him tanked up on wine coolers before he could get it up.

Well its true, rude or not although he has nicer tits in the photo you linked.

MadisonMan said...

What's actually shocking is that there were deluded (mostly) female fans who didn't see this announcement coming from miles away.

Denial can be so strong.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

My kinda gal.

Seven Machos said...

Who on earth thought this man wasn't gay? I find it hard to believe.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

Who on earth thought this man wasn't gay?

They did.

And so did she.

ricpic said...

Gentle gents with giant genitals
Were his cup of semen,
He drew the line at gentile giants
Whose uncircumcised size left him screaming.

Deborah said...

Kathy Griffin will be so surprised.

chuck b. said...

Could those pictures any BIGGER?

We like our gays BIG.

Bart Hall (Kansas, USA) said...

Who the hell is Clay Aiken, and why does he matter to anyone? If he wants to schtupp some guy at home, why on Earth should I care?

There's a huge difference between celebrity and importance. I assume this guy is a celebrity of some sort, but he's obviously not important.

Even if he were important, why would anyone care, one way or the other?

Seven Machos said...

Well, I stand corrected.

Where have you gone, Morrissey, George Michael, and Rock Hudson? A nation turns its lonely eyes to you.

Ann Althouse said...

Chuck, you're right. The size was not aesthetically pleasing. I made them smaller for you.

Zachary Paul Sire said...

We like our gays BIG.

We sure do...

vbspurs said...

Did not see that coming.

I also don't think Tom Cruise or John Travolta are gay either. Yep, 100% not gay.

Seven Machos said...

Yes, Victoria. Thank God our actor gays remain handsome and relatively hunky and manly. And trapped in cults.

vbspurs said...

To think Clay Aiken could've become a Scientologist and spared us this heartache wondering all these years, Seven Machos.

BTW, if this story is true, does that mean that soldier, John Paulus, who said Aiken took him roughly from behind in a hotel room was true? It was revealed by (wait for it) The National Enquirer!

The National Enquirer has officially trumped the New York Times this year, as America's paper of record.

If they don't get a Peabody this year, it's just twattage.

Trumpit said...

"Did he 'make' the baby? Because that would be the really surprising thing."

When you find out the father of your baby is gay, then you can be surprised. Until then, buzz the hell off.

michaele said...

OK, I thought that Clay was probably gay from the begining but inspite of my "red state" alliance, I thought he was the most talented and had no problem making the call to vote for him. I was delighted he did as well as he did in IA and wished him great success in his life endeavors. I just hope that he and whomever he considers as his "family" have a great life and. oh, by the way, I will be voting for McCain/Palin.

Seven Machos said...

Well, now you've done it. Now you've offended Trumpit's tender gay sensibilities.

All bets are off.

Eric said...

What I wanna know is how did frog Degeneris get butterfly DeRossi?

How do frogs always get butterflies? With the tongue...

Seven Machos said...

So these two lesbians are sitting at a gay bar. One of them says to the other, "Who is that creepy, butchy, weird blond back in the corner?"

"Oh, that's Ellen Degeneres. She always goes home with the most beautiful woman here every night."

"Really? How?"

"I don't know. No one knows. She just sits back there, licking her eyebrows."

Synova said...

You have to give Ellen credit, though. She stayed funny.

And whoever Clay is... I hope he stays funny too.

Chip Ahoy said...

He sure can sing.

Ruben Studdard won that round of American Idol, but you guys already know that. Ruben can really sing too.

Chip Ahoy said...

This news is so shocking, I'm forced to immerse myself in making a batch of ravioli.

Lawgiver said...

What do you call a lesbian in outer space?

Alien Degeneras.

Props to Craig Ferguson.

Lawgiver said...

Ooops.

Degeneres*

MadisonMan said...

I made them smaller for you.

Cold water does the same thing.

chuck b. said...

I was pleased when Neil Patrick Harris came out recently, also somewhat redundantly. I would like to have more like him.

rcocean said...

Trumpit is Gay? I thought he was a satirist.

vbspurs said...

So did the blond guy from Boyz N The Hood, or Bros, or NY SYNC, or something. Sorry, I'm not musical.

That was also a shocker, wunn't it?

It's a wonder we still have some holdouts out there, yes Anderson Cooper I am talking to YOU. And you, Miss Foster.

And well, you too, Ricky Martin.

But not, I repeat not, Levi Johnson. That would totally suck ass.

Cheers,
Victoria

vbspurs said...

Oh, forgot.

I hereby dub people who everyone on earth and their tranny lovers know are gay, but refuse to come out for the longest time, only to finally do so at the end:

Clay-mation

I plan on using my newly coined term soon.

Cheers,
Victoria

Trumpit said...

I think people who come out of the closet suck.

PatCA said...

"What I wanna know is how did frog Degeneris get butterfly DeRossi?

Money, fame, connections....

I actually think poor Ellen may have gotten another ringer. DeRossie apparently "discovered" her true sexuality after knowing Ellen a year. Uh oh.

It was Lance Bass from NStYNC.

Jodie came out a few months ago...everyone yawned...

Palladian said...

"But not, I repeat not, Levi Johnson. That would totally suck ass."

Must... resist... gay... Levi Johnson... sucking ass... rimming... joke...

vbspurs said...

Wait Jodie Foster came out PUBLICLY, and this didn't make news, like with fireworks courtesy of The Advocate and Perez Hilton using Paint to scribble a vagina on her face??

vbspurs said...

That is NOT funny, Palladian, sir! You take that visual back, he's mine.

vbspurs said...

Ernie, I got your challenge acceptance about the bras and panties. You're on! And I might be off...

Alex said...

You know when your gaydar is pegging on the MAX, you should totally ignore it.

Chus said...

This is what I think: Clay Aiken

TMink said...

Who.

Cares?

Yeah, ET did a 3 minute feature, and that was it.

RR Ryan said...

Nobody in Hollywood was the least surprised about Foster; it was one of those open secrets. You see people like this out all the time, they just don't go to Hyde Lounge. And no, I'm not telling you where they do go.
