Clay on Gay: People Will Believe What They Want


Clay Aiken issued a non-denial when confronted about his sexuality by People magazine in an issue that hits newsstands Friday.

“What do you say (to that question)? … It’s like when I was 8. I remember something would get broken in the house, and Mom and Dad would call me in and say, ‘Did you do this?’ Well, it didn’t matter what I said. The only thing they would believe was yes. … People are going to believe what they want.”

Interesting analogy. So is being gay being broken?

I remember when I used to break something in the house, I often tried to put it back together or at least make it look like it wasn’t broken so I could postpone the event of someone discovering it. I eventually learned that honesty is the best policy.

Hmm. Suddenly Clay’s analogy makes perfect sense.
