Clay Aiken: Walking Tall


It has become a tradition for the fans, that choose to wait, to line up outside the venue each night after a concert. They line up in single file along curbs, circling blocks and buildings or on the waterfront and they wait patiently for Clay to shower and change into something comfortable. Sometimes he wears his favorite ratty shorts and sometimes its flannels and hoodies, depending on the season.

The numbers vary from hundreds to thousands and the line can go for a mile or more at times. In the video below, one of the fans decided to walk along behind him and capture it for posterity. There's no way to tell how long he can continue to do this. The line seems at times to be too long to be manageable. At one venue Clay was driven to the end of the line in a police car, another time a golf cart, and he walks the line touching every hand and thanking the fans for coming.

Fans waiting at the buses and waving goodbye as Clay's buses drove away has been a long time habit through many of his tours but to have him walk the line is something that grew organically and has gotten bigger and bigger. One thing that venue staff and bystanders commonly say is that they've never seen such a cool thing and that they'll never forget it. I've never seen or heard of any popstar doing such a thing and I shouldn't be so surprised. Clay isn't your run of the mill popstar and how cool is that!

Check this out.

    Let the haters try and appease their raging jealousy by calling Clay a pissy diva. We know better. Clay is a caring, giving, UNSELFISH man. He loves his fans, and will go to great lengths to prove it to them.

    I loved the video. It just shows the thrill of waiting for Clay to come by, ever so quickly, and brush your hand. To be close enough to touch him, yet not be able to do anything but stand and take in the moment! Thanks to all who made the video, and all the clackgatherers who contributed - you have brought the rest of us much joy. The bus line, for me is like the icing on the cake. As if seeing the concert is not enough, Clay then gives us all a personal moment with himself. I love this man!!!!

    That is Percocet?! I expected Percocet to be more "butch". John actually "outed" Percocet because he said that she lived in New York City and had a lesbian experience. He said she was married and everything else. It's funny because Sherri wasn't the first person I thought it was, until I actually talked to her under a fake alias to gain her trust. She is Percocet for sure. She can deny all she wants, but I have proof.

    I guess JP has discovered the Fountain of Youth. Not only is he shaving years off his age, he's also growing taller. He's gone from 5'6" all of last year to 5'7". Do you think he got lifts in his shoes? He was wearing some mighty thick-soled shoes at Cary. Now we hear that he's really going to be 45 instead of 40, except on his latest Manhunt profile, he says he's 35. Fudging the truth again, JP?

    Whatever he's doing, he should bottle it and sell it. His minions who hang on his every word will buy it by the case. Then he can pay off his mountain of unpaid bills that he's been accruing since he left the military.

    4:30 is either Sherri herself trying to divert the truth, because she was "caught" or someone who knows Sherri personally and doesn't like the fact she's been exposed.

    Freedom of speech can only go so far, before the truth is set free. We do not care if Clay and John met, we do care that you are trying to ruin a good man and his fanbase for your own selfish reasons. Give it up. You have not won and will never come out in the end as the winner.

    Also, leave Chexxy alone too. She's not a bad person at all and is actually someone who I admire. She had enough guts to stand up to you sick, negative, pessimistic trash.

    BTW, Bina admitted to others that she made up the valleyprettyboy s/n and posted it on a gay site. That is one sick bitch.

    QUOTE
    It's called moving on. Nothing odd about. I told you guys before and I'll tell you again, up until the concert I questioned Clay's sincerity, but once I attended and subsequent to it I became convinced that he meant everything he privately told me. For that I'm appreciative and I am keeping my word by moving forward.

    Sounds like JP is one of the poor Paulus relations. A wannabe.

    If your family owns so many famous restaurants, why didn't you go into the business with them, or become a famous chef? You have such a hankering for celebrity, you could have sent in your tape to the Food Network. Instead, you're a leech.

    Insofar as your daytrading, I could see you being up to your eyeballs in debt from that. Could be why you don't pay your bills. There isn't any other excuse for not paying your bills, and I don't want to hear about identity theft. You could have had it straightened out by now if that truly happened, as you claimed the initial "theft" happened years ago. Not buying it.

  57. I see stalkerboi is still using 2 words he borrowed from Stonehouse's old signature quote which she borrowed from one of the slashfic stories at the OC. It's something like "...a quarter turn from/at the wall...". Don't know if I'm close enough to how it goes but you get the idea.

  58. Anonymous4:31 PM

    Quarter turns is an expression ripped right out of the OC's fanfic. JP admitted in his own comments section that he didn't know what it meant until he met "Clay." At another time, he said it was his long term boyfriend who used the expression. Sounds to me like JP can't stick to one story. He just continues to fart his fables outta his ass.

    As for being retired, do you think he just got an infusion of cash from someone to keep this scam going? It's called FRAUD. Punishable by prison time. You think about that, JP.

    One of these days, your efforts are going to bite you in the ass, and it won't be a bite by one of your alleged lovers. Which I doubt you've had in a long time, or you wouldn't be obsessing over Clay or annoying his mom with your little tokens of winning her over.

  64. Ladies,

    jealousy and envy are terrible creatures that can eat you from within. Please spare yourselves that pain and just accept the fact I'm a sweet boy from a small hometown who caught the beautiful green eye of one Clay Aiken. For those of you who had the fortune of catching a glimpse of me you can understand why the man was smitten by me. Don't judge him for that.

    And as far as "smearing" anyone, the only "smearing" that went on was with Wet Platinum. Be nice to me ladies. Friends should not be treated this way. After all, we may not always agree with Clay's decisions, but we must respect them.

    As his new #1 fan, soon with a website dedicated to frank and open discussion, complete with borrowed Clack and hijacked stories, and a list of tours and upcoming appearances I'm going to demonstrate how you be a fan, friend, and supporter.
