Great White Way Ridiculous

1/21/2008 4:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Clay Aiken's Saturday night debut in Broadway's "Spamalot" was full of absurdity -- and not because of Monty Python's material.


As Aiken made his debut at Broadway's "Spamalot" on Saturday, TMZ was in the house and -- believe us -- the Shubert Theater was full of middle-aged housewives (who comprise the Claymates) elbowed and bitched their way through a crazy throng to get their Romeo's autograph.

If Kelly Ripa doesn't want him touching her, there are definitely plenty of 40-and-overs who do!

For a small guy he has a super-sized tool. I caught a glimpse of him geting undressed in the locker room at LA Fitness and was in awe! Seems that some people have it all.

Sure you did buzzbomber. First, Clay's fans know he would never be at a fitness club, lol. He hates exercising. Second, "for a small guy?". Aiken is 6'1" in his stocking feet.

Why do you Dislike Clay so much??? Clay is a Good Man, He has establish a Non- Profit Organizatin Bubel/Aiken IN 2003 to help and aid children with Metal disablities and in 2004 was Appointed an ambassador for UNICEF.
CLAY is very Gifted & Muti-Talented Singer & entertainer & a Comic Actor in his Debut role as Sir Robin in Spamalot.
I have already seen this show twice. I thought your comments was very Trashy and you probably didn't even see the show.
We Need more People in this world like Clay Aiken..

Yes    

To #30. Being the mother of a very intelligent, successful, talented actress in Hollywood, who has never been in trouble, doesn't drink, doesn't do drugs, works incredibly hard, is always studying her acting between films or stage engagements and who prays and attends church weekly, I completely resent your remark. You have no right to judge everyone in this town by the behavior of those who are noticed simply because they are the squeakiest wheel.

Before people comment and trash someone, please have your facts straight. First of all, Clay is not a small man. He is 6'1".. very tall! He does not have a huge ego. Quite the opposite. He is quite humble. Someone with a huge ego, would not share the stage with his back up singers, and give them props for their work and talent. Also, Clay's career is NOT in the toilet. He is the third most successful Idol from the entire series.. the MOST successful runner up. And, he success is going to continue and get even bigger. Clay's fan are people of ALL ages. And, since when is 40 old? If you go to any Clay Aiken concert you will see men and women ranging from 2-92. And, at Spamalot.. the crowds have had many, many men there, Including at the stage door waiting for his autograph.

Clay in Spamalot is blowing people away. He is a star.. and he is doind a fantastic job. and BTW.. in the show, he is wearing a wig. if you see the footage towards the end of the video, it shows Clay outside without the wig. And.. Clay plays 4 different parts in the show. so he looks different in each one.

Those of you hating a talking trash, no nothing about Clay, and need to stop. He is not gay, as he has stated many, many tiimes. Being a nice guy doesn't mean you are gay. Leave Clay alone.. he is a good man, with decent morals, and is a wonderful example of what a decent human being should be like. And, his talent, is amazing. The voice of course. But, he is also the ultimate entertainer. He is amazingly funny.. and very, very intelligent.

Do your homework people.. or all you are reporting are lies.

Ladies - all of you who have written in defending Clay from the vulgarities being thrown at him and at his fans - may I humbly add my opinion. Do what Clay does. When someone says something he sees as rude or crude, he ignores it or says that he refuses to discuss it.

If we did the same - completely ignored those who are trying to pull our chains, they'd soon stop. Why? Because these people need an audience to validate their own existence. Something is very wrong with them that they have no other way to make themselves known in this world. Feel pity for them, not anger. And don't answer them back. It only encourages them.
