Clay AikenAccording to Clay Aiken, Clay Aiken is misunderstood.

After his recent blast of "American Idol" in general -- and runner-up Adam Lambert in particular -- the singer is now apologizing. Kind of.

Once again taking to his website, Aiken didn't so much withdraw his comments about Lambert's singing, but did say:

"I do apologize to Adam for my colorful (and negative) choice of words. I hope he can forgive me. I imagine he doesn't give a damn! :-) God knows he shouldn't. :-)"
