Clay Aiken Cops An Attitude With ‘Newsweek’

All that eyeliner’s gone to Clay Aiken’s head! The Spam-a-lot star turned demon diva during a recent Newsweek interview, particularly when the journo brought up that Kelly Ripa rumble:

What about the Kelly Ripa thing?
I’m not going to discuss it.

Did you think it was homophobic?
I’m not going to discuss it.

What do you want to talk about?
I think we’re done.

Can we talk about something fun?
No, we’re done. I thought Newsweek would be more reputable. I’m surprised.

But I think people are curious about it.
It was a year ago. This is Newsweek. It’s not the National Enquirer. I’d hate to have a job where I had to be rude to people.

We’re just having a conversation.
Change the subject! I’d never take a job where I had to do something that I didn’t want to do.

What about all those Ford commercials on American Idol?
That wasn’t a job.
