As a friend of mine said, "Clay Aiken must own a vineyard, because boy is filled with sour grapes!"
The once-American Idol runner-up has nothing nice to say about this season's second-place finisher, Adam Lambert. On his blog, Clay took it upon himself to go off on the glammed-up rocker that some thought were going to take the title this year.
"For the record...I couldn't be happier about the way AI ended this year," Clay wrote about cutie Kris Allen's victory. "I only turn the show on once a season, and only to see what the set looks like each year.
"This year, I happened to turn it during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing 'Ring of Fire' and, at that moment, thought my ears would bleed. Contrived, awful and slightly frightening!"
"Just not my cup of tea at all. To each his own."
Like that wasn't bad enough -- Clay went on to just spit on most of the recent Idols -- and the judges.
"Not even having watched the show, I can tell you that I was WELL aware of the bias from the judges as to who should win. In my opinion, that is awfully unattractive. I don't think I am alone.
"I think many were turned off by the blatant favoritism shows towards one contestant...And, at the same time, I think they voted AGAINST an American Idol that has, for four years now, been more about the slick productions and polished contestants than it has been about finding the raw talent that it did in its first three seasons.
"Enough with the pretention. More Rubens, more Clays, more Fantasias and Tamyras and Kellys please."
Um, ew, Clay. Who asked you?
