THE SEXY LIST!

I'm aware that Clay is on the list twice. I am also aware that Angelina is the lone woman on this list. I am a straight girl, but I also recognize that SHE'S FUCKING HOT.
Clay Aiken is VERY important to me. I'm sure many of you are wondering "why?" Well, here's the story. I've watched American Idol since the middle of season 1. By the time season 2 rolled around, I knew the plot and, needless to say, season 2 was MY season. I watched every episode, every audition. Now, at first, Clay Aiken didn't strike me as anything all that special. As a matter of fact, throughout the whole season, to me he was just "the good geeky kid". No, my OBSESSION didn't start until I saw him in concert in Orlando on the American Idol Tour in 2002 with Danielle notthatlucky.
Clay is the reason I still use my LiveJournal. He was the catalyst in many of my friendships. My two best friends Amanda ceilingburro and Shelley thatshysterical are just that because of Clay Aiken - I met Amanda in an AI RPG (she played Clay, I played Julia Demato), and I met Shelley at a release party for Clay's debut album that I helped plan in Orlando. Together, the three of us have traveled together to see Clay 10 times...and that's saying something, because Amanda lives in Tennessee.
OK, so Clay is responsible for my friendships. Why else do I like him? Well, he's more talented than you. This kid has got some major lung power, and the world is starting to realize it. He's sold millions of albums, won many, many awards, and won the hearts of a bunch of people. His music is gorgeous; granted, all of it is written FOR him, but he's only 27. He hasn't had time to live long enough to have a lot to write about, I guess. He's a humanitarian - he started the Bubel-Aiken Foundation to benefit autistic children and aid in their integration in society. He's an ambassador for peace for UNICEF. He's an author. He's (generally) a down-home, sweet Southern gentleman. Plus...he's a fuckin' hottie. I know a lot of people just don't see it, but it's all a matter of taste.
Now, for the record, since Clay's hiatus between tours and CDs, I have grown out of him a little. JUST A LITTLE. Now that he's back on the tour circuit and prepping a new CD, I find it fun to follow his life again. But I will always love him. And his music will always make me cry thinking about the old days. ♥
