Clay Aiken: A Man of Heart

February is shaping up to be a good month for Claymates, Clay Dawgs, Claymaniacs, Clay Nation, Claynadians, and all Clay's fans. It ain't called the "love month" for nothing!

The extraordinary video above is from Yahoo! Answers, which is currently featuring Clay's question, "What can we do to get more Americans committed to supporting programs that help children?"

The month of love - it begins on February 1, as Clay visits Good Morning America. According to the official fan club, Clay will appear next Thursday on behalf of UNICEF. Interested citizens may participate in this interactive appearance, by asking Clay their own questions about UNICEF and his role with them, or other pertinent questions in their feature "Be Seen, Be Heard."

Monday, February 5, brings yet another showing of Clay's episode of Scrubs from 2005, "My Life in Four Cameras." It airs at 7:30 pm EST on the Comedy Channel. The show aired originally in February 2005.

In the wee hours of Valentine's Day, February 14, at 2:00 am EST, Clay's episode of Saturday Night Live, with host Megan Mullally, airs on E!. This will be a truncated version of the original show, which originally aired in February 2004.

Later that same day, Clay visits Jimmy Kimmel Live in what is becoming perilously close to an annual tradition! I wonder what Clay will shave for Jimmy this time. ; ) Tune in at 12:05 am EST (just after midnight!) Valentine's night for what is sure to be a good time with the guys. Please note: Clay is not scheduled to perform at this time.

Clay Aiken is a man of heart, and of substance. He is making a difference, and helping "us" make a difference as well.

Thank you Clay. We Heart You.

Tabloids Are Stupid

From the Claymaniacs News Blog.

Tabloids Are Stupid

FYI: Some tabloid has a cover story about Clay Aiken being "fat" and "popping pills." He already told us about taking prescribed medication for a medical reason, so big dilly deal. But FAT? Please. We aren't stupid.

Besides, just last week they were calling him "skinny, gawky, elfish, and pixielike."

Well, here's the real deal. Clay Aiken is not fat...he's HOT. Read it and weep you silly tabloid rag.

Just who do they think we are anyway? Idiots? I think not. Why on earth would someone spend their hard earned money on something that insults their intelligence? Not this Claymate.
