Above The Fray

There was a man,
a wonderful man - a man who had been bullied his whole life
and still made lemonade out of lemons.

A man who wore his heart on his sleeve,
who always said "what you see is what you get"
a man who became a sensation overnight and suddenly became the target once
again for the bullies.

This wonderful man just kept on going - trying to help those less
fortunate, working hard on his craft
and gave his fans more than they ever imagined.
He gave it all with warmth and humor and talent.
This made the man an even bigger target of the people with hate in their
hearts and jealousy in their blood.
I pray that his man can continue to stand tall and know he will win - we
will be
be here by his side
and give him the love he so deserves.

It's a sad world that you can assess the level of celebrity by making it into the sleazy rags. People want to read about you if you are famous. If there were no buzz around you, the tabs would not sell papers on your name. There is no such thing as journalistic integrity in the tabs, we all know that. They take rumors and gossip started on the internet by anyone with an agenda and call it fact. Gossip columns in legitimate papers pick it up, give it a patina of truth which gives even more legitimate outlets a way to report it. No one really gets their hands dirty. The tabs have their sources even if it is lies, Page Six picks up the stories that are "sourced" by the tabs, legitimate outlets start talking about like it is fact since it was in the Holy Grail of Gossip, Page Six, and so it goes. No one seems to care that there are real people being lied about. Lies that can verge on character assassination. Lies that can damage reputations. Lies told about people who have done nothing other than to be famous. It's really sickening.

Clay Aiken has been the object of tabloid rumor-mongering. He has chosen to remain silent for the time being. Answering every lie told about you is not an answer. Clay Aiken is a man of honor and class. He is a man who walks a path and will not be swayed.

His time will come.

Love your blog!

"His time will come"

That is what I'm praying for..

There are days when I think that my emotional health would be better served by staying off the boards, but I continue to check them. I just want to be ready when he needs my support..CD sales, polls, tours etc.

Clay is a great guy with a beautiful voice and deserves none of this hatred.

Beautiful post. Thanks for sharing it on your blog.

Anxiously awaiting Clay's new CD, also. I know it will be great, and make everyone forget all the tabloid "mess" of earlier this year!

Clay will prevail. His voice is a gift and meant to be used. It will continue to be...I have no doubt. He has already accomplished so much in his life and so many have benefitted from him. Everyone, good and bad, is attracted to the light...and Clay's light shines very bright.

Once Clay can use his own voice, his reality will be louder than any liest that can be spread.
