American Idol season 4 alum, Constantine Maroulis called out season 2 runner-up, Clay Aiken on twitter today, calling him “corny” and suggesting he “stay classy.”

Constantine, who is playing the lead role in a revival of “Jekyl and Hyde,” was miffed that Clay tweeted a photo from the audience at the  Durham Performing Arts Center  in Durham, NC last night as if HE snapped it, when it was actually Clay’s mom and assistant in the seats.  According to Constantine,  Clay’s team made a “big deal” about wanting comp tickets and M&G’s for the Idol alum.

Clay has yet to responds to Constantine’s  mini-rant.

Check out the tweets.

    Hehehe I don’t mind Clay being corny and I think it is nice of him to give the tickets to his mother… I guess there must be a reason why Clay can’t make it…maybe he could just have added at the twitpic : “wish I was there”…

  • HermeticallySealed

    Hmmm, was Connie feeling unnoticed?

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQK5ZAWQOFGWY6KOSA4PXBPJNU srifan

    There was a death in Clay’s family on Friday, the day of the play.

  • Eileen99

    LOL, this is fun stuff.  I didn’t watch Idol back then – were they on the same season?

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    LOL! “Corny?” Apparently, Constantine doesn’t know what that means. Though it’s true that Clay Aiken is corny, tweeting a pic his mother took from HIS free seats is not.  In fact, it’s not much of anything except free publicity to Clay’s fans about Constantine’s play. Why so grouchy, Con?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol This is pretty funny. I don’t know why Clay wasn’t there, but it was misleading the way that he posted that pic and what he tweeted about it (his fans believed that he was there). It sounds like Clay’s “team” contacted the show/Constantine and made a “BIG DEAL” about Clay coming to see the show, with a request for a meet and greet. I think that if Clay hadn’t posted that photo making it seem like he was there, then Constantine wouldn’t have said anything about it.

    lololol – Cue the bitchfight in 5, 4, 3, 2…

    I.can’t. with this story… I ain’t a Clay fan, but how does the cheesiest greasiest cheesemeister who ever cheesed and greased on Idol get off trying to call somebody else corny?  Maroulis ass so corny he poops niblets.

    “Clay has yet to responds to Constantine’s  mini-rant.”  
    And I would bet Clay will never respond.  What a silly thing to rant about.  If Constantine was concerned he would have contacted Clay privately, not on twitter.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol I’ve seen a couple of preview ads for J&H, and there are a couple of really corny bits of acting by Constantine. I think that he’s been getting very good reviews for his performance though, and this tour is leading to the show opening on Broadway, so good for him. He already has a Tony nomination for “Rock of Ages”, so that’s pretty impressive.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

     lolol – he still Corny Con to me, lolol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “If Constantine was concerned he would have contacted Clay privately, not on twitter.”

    Why? Clay posted the pic publicly, so I think that it’s fair game for Constantine to let people know what happened publicly as well. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Or maybe, Constantine was so excited by the prospect of meeting with Clay that his disappointment at Clay not coming made him lash out?  Nah! lol

    Goodness, Clay’s Uncle died as posted by his cousin on FB.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_OQK5ZAWQOFGWY6KOSA4PXBPJNU srifan

    Exactly! 

  • Idoling

    Clay’s uncle died, so Clay skips, but his mom and assistant still go to the show and use tickets set aside for Clay? Bad form Mr. Aiken (and Aiken team)

  • Axxxel

    Yeah…hope his uncle rests in peace… I am sure that Clay would have made it to the show in different circumstances…

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Link please. 

  • Idoling

    It’s funny though how Clay’s mom acts like she’s a star.

  • suenigma

    Perhaps the Uncle was no relation to his Mother  – eg Brother of his Father. Hardly bad form IMO. Bad form would have been leaving the seats sitting empty. It was nice that Constantine was promoting the play, in fact. Does Constantine not have larger things to fret about?

    Cannot believe I am defending Clay. LOL. Constantine is a talented guy, but he is also the douchiest douche that ever douched. JMO

  • fuzzywuzzy

    So Clay skips because his step-father’s brother died, but Faye (Clay’s mom) doesn’t skip for her late husband’s brother’s death? That sounds odd. Plus, why did Clay post that pic and make it seem like he took it?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Perhaps the Uncle was no relation to his Mother  – eg Brother of his Father.”

    Actually, the Uncle was the brother of Clay’s mother late husband, and no blood relation to Clay (Clay’s father was Faye’s first husband, Vernon Grissom).

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I don’t follow Constantine. I do remember from Idol that he was really cheesy and sometimes overly dramatic. lol  Obviously, he was offended by Clay.This little twitter incident is just too funny. 

  • Niall

    I think Clay tweeting the picture as if he was there rubbed Constantine the wrong way. I would have dealt with it privately but obviously there was some effort put into getting Clay tickets and arranging a meet and greet with the cast. If he blew it off without explanation and gave the comped tickets to other people, that does seem tacky. Which, to me, leaves Clay and Connie tied 1-1 for tacky behavior. It’s a draw.

  • suenigma

    It is pretty funny, I agree. I just do not get why Constantine gives a shit whether Clay or his Mother came? Ive given my tickets to a loved one several times when I was unable to attend (sick, family emergency, etc.) What is so scandalous? Why would Con take this public without knwoing the reason why? And I also dont think Clay was being dishonest, I think he was giving props to the show. Again, JMO.

    So silly. Go ahead and be annoyed privately, but taking it to twitter, really?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Pia-Tims/100001322582197 Pia Tims

    Clay is very close to the Parker family.  Blood does not necessarily make a family.

  • mjsbigblog

    Regardless of the reason why Clay blew it off, it’s still really weird that he would tweet that photo as if he were sitting in the audience. Why even bother?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Do you know Clay in real life? If not, you must be assuming these relationships. And since Faye was at the show, I guess that she wasn’t close to her late husband’s brother?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Geez. The Claymates actually dug up the obit to provide Clay with an alibi? Unbelievable!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “I think Clay tweeting the picture as if he was there rubbed Constantine the wrong way.”

    I think that is was prompted Constantine to be irritated and I can see why.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I know. He didn’t even mention the show, so it’s not like he was trying to promote or advertise it. Weird.

  • suenigma

    Because he felt bad about not being able to attend, and miguidedly thought that he was fufilling his end of the bargan? Is that not why celebs (even D list, LOL) are given comps for these events, so they can help promote them? The whole thing is mega-weird, but I think he meant well.

  • suenigma

    But Fuzzy, why is it weird that Faye night not be close to them and Clay is? Sounds like a typical family to me. I would be devastated if my Step-Mothers sister died. She is my Aunt, as far as Im concerned, and my Father and Step-Mother are divorced!

  • durbesque

    Trying to figure out the corn/cheese factor, which was one, which was the other, or were they both the same.  Oh, maybe BroadwayWorld can help me out.  Con and Clay are both Idol/Broadway babies.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    But he didn’t even name the show, so how does that promote it? lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Cannot believe I am defending Clay. LOL. Constantine is a talented guy, but he is also the douchiest douche that ever douched. JMO”

    lol Well, Clay can be pretty douchey too, so I guess that they have that in common.

  • suenigma

    By the same token, he didnt mention the show specifically, so how was he being dishonest that he had attended it?

    So crazy!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I guess that I’m influenced by Clay’s memoirs where he basically talked about how abusive his step father was to him. This was in contrast to his sob story on Idol, where he talked about how his father (step father) had died recently and his going on Idol cheered his family up. You’re right about blood not mattering, but I still maintain that no one who doesn’t know Clay in real life can know what his relationship is to any of his relatives.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=579290324 Michael Bishop

     Perhaps Clay was helping Constantine promote the show.  He exposed his followers to Constantine’s show.  That’s free promotion. Constantine should be thanking him.  Instead, he’s coming off as a petty prick.

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    I’m not a fan of Clay’s, but good lord! This seems like much ado about nothing. Since his assistant was in the audience with his mother, isn’t it possible he/she has access to his twitter account and posted the pic? Also, it’s kind of gross to decide how Clay should respond to his uncle’s death. His mother is an “ex” but that doesn’t mean Clay didn’t remain close to his step-father’s family. He might have had a good relationship with both the man and his children (his cousins.) His other might have felt herself unwelcome as the “evil ex” but Clay, as the step-son of the brother, probably developed strong bonds with the family. Constantine is in the wrong here. I don’t think he did himself any favors, and comes across as a bit of jack ass. 

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol Nah, Clay definitely gave the impression that he attended this show, but you’re right about people not knowing what the show was. It IS crazy! I’ll bet that Clay never thought that Constantine would take offense and tweet anything. Amusing nonetheless.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Again, Clay didn’t name the show, so how could that be “free promotion”? lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Then again, maybe Clay’s uncle’s passing had nothing to do with why he wasn’t at the show. Fans are just assuming that it did.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    suenigma: You seem to have a very strong negative opinion of Constantine. Can you give me a brief summary of why you think that he’s the “douchiest douche that ever douched”? lol

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    Well, I don’t KNOW if it did. But, I’m going to suspect that was the case as the opposite would be kind of upsetting. If Clay DIDN’T attend his step-uncle’s wake, there’d be a certain lack of manners there. His mother has no obligation to attend, but Clay would have developed a relationship with the family that involved him being accepted as a nephew, grandson, and cousin. And you know what? Clay might have insisted that picture be sent out himself so that no one would try to track him down at his uncle’s wake. I realize I sound like a die-hard fan making excuses. Sorry for that, but I think the guy deserves some consideration here. Now, if we learn that Clay couldn’t be bothered to attend the relatives wake and just palmed off his tickets, I suppose there is room for some kind of outrage. What kind? I’m not sure. It just all seems stupid to me.  

  • IdolyEverAfter

    No fan of Clay here, but is it possible it wasn’t Faye at the show?  Or it was and she joined later or today?   Who knows.  Actually, I’m disappointed in myself for even wondering.  Haha.

  • suenigma

    Just to be clear, I am not a Clay fan. LOL. And I am not assuming that that was the reason, just offering a perhaps to your semi-assertion that it was laughable that he would be too upset to attend when his Mother wasnt too upset to attend. The point is we dont know why he wasnt there and we dont know why he posted that picture. Neither does Constantine, which is why it is odd that he took this public. 

  • durbesque

    Clay’s mom has an assistant?  Why?  To help her get around?

    Clay has a team?

    There are levels to this story that need probing.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “If Clay DIDN’T attend his step-uncle’s wake, there’d be a certain lack of manners there.”

    The wake is tonight. The show was last night. The funeral is tomorrow. I hope that no Claymates show up now that these details are known.

    “Now, if we learn that Clay couldn’t be bothered to attend the relatives wake”

    He didn’t attend the funeral of his biological father, so I honestly don’t know what Clay would or would not do in these circumstances.

  • suenigma

    I think he is a talented guy, and I would love to see him in a show, but I have several resons for not liking him, only a couple of which are fit for printing on a clean-cut blog like this. LOL. Mind you I dont like Clay either, so…

    Basically, Constantine initiated this Bitchfest so he gets my ire this time,  and if it was Clay who had initiated it, he would be under fire.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol I don’t know, but since Constantine referred to Clay’s mother and assistant specifically, maybe they went backstage for a Meet and Greet?  lol

  • http://twitter.com/ab2859 ab2859

    All I could think about after reading this story is that Clay didn’t go to his own father’s funeral and yet he went to a step-uncle’s funeral.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    To be clear, I didn’t think that it was “laughable”, just perhaps a little odd that Clay didn’t attend, but his mom did, if the reason for his absence was his uncle’s death.

  • http://kristentheyellowlab.blogspot.com/ ZsusK

    OK. My bad. I didn’t pay enough to detail. When people were yammering about a death in Clay’s family, I Assumed (and we all know what happens when we assume) that meant that was the reason for him being absent from the show. Still…is it that big a deal? I just don’t get it.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Clay’s mom has an assistant?  Why?  To help her get around?”

    I think that it was Clay’s personal assistant who went with his mom, but maybe she does need help to get around. I don’t know.

    “Clay has a team?”

    I guess, although it could just be a couple of friends who post stuff occasionally on his twitter and sign “TC”. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “I have several resons for not liking him, only a couple of which are fit for printing on a clean-cut blog like this. LOL.”

    Oooh! My imagination is running wild now! lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Still…is it that big a deal? I just don’t get it.”

    That’s just it … it’s not a big deal at all, but just weird and amusing. lol

  • Idoling

    Clay has a team? What for? Based on the numbers of his last few projects, he hardly has a career.

  • durbesque

    Clay has a career….the eternal runner-up.

    On Con’s behalf, if I expected a star and his boyfriend to see my magnificent performance, and he sent his mother and her escort instead, I would be pithed.

  • MissMyEm

    I was a fan of both.  I am now a fan of neither.   Main reason…neither appreciates all their fans.  With Constantine it’s the select few who are blonde, tall and pretty (to him).   With Clay..he just has mood swings.  I will say this.  Clay was always nice to me and I met him several times.  Constantine…not so much, simply because I asked him a question and he had throat problems.  Tore my head off because he didn’t want to speak…as if I were a psychic and could read his mind.  He didn’t however have a problem speaking to the young leggy mini skirted 20 somethings a head of me.  So for me…I walked away and under my breath said something I won’t repeat here…and it was over.

    So message to Constantine…when you want to tell someone to stay classy…give the advice to yourself. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bug-Menot/100003601718986 Bug Menot

    Sounds to me like Clay’s team contacted Constantine and he personally pulled strings to get the tickets (good seats too) and admission to the M&G. He was aggravated when Clay didn’t show and Clay’s tweet making it appear that he did only aggravated him further.

  • Idoling

    I’m not sure that Clay really qualifies as a “star” at this point, but he apparently has a “team” that made “a BIG deal” of him attending, so I can’t fault CM for being irked when Aiken’s mom & assistant showed up instead, and then posted a photo to Clay’s twitter like he was there.

    The photo is the weirdest part of this whole thing.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    LOL.  Haven’t read any of the comments yet, but tee to the effing hee. I didn’t know classy was in Contantine’s vocab.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    I bet this was planned.  Clay and Connie are lovers. Connie’s baby mama is just a beard. She was hired and Clay’s sperm was used.  I swear I read it on TMZ.

  • http://twitter.com/cara_lee pj

    OK, in all seriousness.  WTF?  Constantine must be a serious fanboy of Clay’s to get all that upset. Or, he’s insecure when he gets a perceived diss. Or, maybe a twitter feud will help him sell ticket so his show. All of the above?

    Dear Mr. Aiken: Buy your own damned tickets.

    Dear Mr. Maroulis: If you haven’t anything better to do than rant on Twitter, then I can’t imagine why people envy the acting life as being exciting. Go watch a Law & Order re-run and keep your hands off the tweetbox.

  • Incipit

    Geebus. What a petulant child it is, and what a fragile, easily dented ego. Such a fuss over nothing of importance.

    I can’t imagine why he would care, I also can’t imagine why anyone else is supposed to. Maybe, sit down and shut up would be good?

    JMO. Of Course.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “I was a fan of both.  I am now a fan of neither.   Main reason…neither appreciates all their fans.”

    I’m sorry that you had a bad experience with Constantine at a M&G. It sounds like he acted pretty douchey. I’ve heard of Clay being douchey to fans at M&Gs too. Yet another thing that Constantine and Clay have in common. lol

  • Jenna Russell

    CM is the one who needs to heed his own advice here and stay classy. Whatever the mix up was, it is NOT classy to rant about it on Twitter. It should have remained private. He comes across as being the classless fool that he is. This M & G stuff cracks me up too – he makes a big deal of Clay wanting one with him. Clay is by far the bigger celebrity here – why on earth would he want a M & G with this wanna be “star”? The usual way would just be for Clay to go backstage after the show to say hi to a fellow performer. Bottom line is there is no proof besides CM’s rant that Clay was not actually at the show . He could have been there in a different seat and left earlier than his mom and assistant. We don’t know what the real story is because Clay is staying silent and keeping it classy.
     

  • SullyD

    lol at Connie calling someone “corny”.
    Because being a Broadway rocker is such a badass thing?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Clay is by far the bigger celebrity here – why on earth would he want a M & G with this wanna be “star”?”

    I’m not sure that’s true now. Constantine is a Tony nominee and rising star on Broadway, getting very good reviews for the pre-Broadway run of J&H. Clay was once a bigger celebrity, but his career has been dying for years, and he’s been irrelevant to the music industry for a long time. It’s a toss up at this stage as to who is the “bigger celebrity”. lol

    “The usual way would just be for Clay to go backstage after the show to say hi to a fellow performer. Bottom line is there is no proof besides CM’s rant that Clay was not actually at the show . He could have been there in a different seat and left earlier than his mom and assistant. We don’t know what the real story is because Clay is staying silent and keeping it classy.”

    Maybe Clay wanted to meet the cast, not just Constantine (is there a hot guy in the ensemble? lol ), and I’m sure that Constantine knew where the comped seats were (and could tell from the pic that Clay posted that the photo was taken from those seats), so unless Clay bought another ticket for himself, why would he be sitting anywhere else? At any rate, Constantine seemed to know the identity of Clay’s mom and assistant, so I think that they may have met him. But then one would think that if they did, they would have conveyed the reason why Clay wasn’t there. lol This may have Clay thinking twice before requesting comp tickets in the future. ;) It’s all just a weird, funny little “incident”.

  • Liteasy

    What a joke – Constantine is probably the corniest person to come out of Idol!!!

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_GHGQLPQHCKYWPO27PQXEAYR4NE taz

     Clay would never need Connie to get him tickets for any show at the DPAC. Clay is a major patron of that theater and would know many people who could get him tickets to a show if he wanted to attend.

  • kmd23

    This video shows why I am not a fan of Constantine and think he can be a jerk. It is an audio clip of an interview Con did in 2008 when he stated his “gaydar” said Archie was gay. Who really cares anymore but I don’t think it was true. He also kind of slammed Cook and Sanjaya.  I like honesty and being funny (love Howard Stern) but not when it is mean spirited and to get attention for yourself. Archie never said a bad work about Con and even posed with many pics with him a few years ago at an AI reunion. Con tweeted the pics.  Con is very talented but a douche. He just can’t help himself I think.lol.   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJkuYeIrDCY

  • tomr

    With all the real problems in the world, why spend any amount of energy on this?  Sad!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yeah, from that video, I can see why people think that Constantine is a douche. He comes across as pretty full of himself. lol I thought that it was interesting that Constantine said that Ken and Nigel LOVED all of the gossip about the show that was spread by sites like TMZ, as I’m sure that’s true.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Then I guess that anyone posting on this entire blog shouldn’t be, since what is discussed here pales by comparison to real problems in the world.

  • EmmaCT

    Ummm… this is all about communication and the fact that there are no free tickets – they come from a cache, or allotment, and all are accounted for. Probably all handled by their “people,” but if the requested tickets are not used by the “celebrity” for the PR value, it ultimately reflects badly on the “requester.” Somebody from Clay’s side should have advised the situation prior to the performance and this would be a non-issue. On the other hand… it would have been simple to ask “what happened” rather than assume… But this is why Constantine is Constantine and it made for a 5-minute Sunday morning diversion.

  • kmd23

     Yes I agree. Con was right on about Ken and Nigel. lol. Also many Archie fans still hate the guy but it is in the past. I don’t care anymore and Archie sure does not.  Con is very talented but can be a jerk. That is just the way his is. lol.

  • Jenna Russell

    Bottom line remains there is no proof, just speculation, that Clay was not actually at the show. It will probably remain that way because Clay will most likely remain classy and keep it private. It is clear to me that CM remains jealous of other Idols who have made a bigger name for themselves and have had more success than him. Judging by the you tube posted above, is there anyone coming off Idol that he hasn’t dissed? What a self serving jerk.

  • MellyPer1692

    Lol, with all the problems in the world, why would anybody post about idol or entertainment or any myriad of topics that aren’t life altering?

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Bottom line remains there is no proof, just speculation, that Clay was not actually at the show.”

    I can’t imagine why Constantine would lie about this.

    “It will probably remain that way because Clay will most likely remain classy and keep it private.”Clay has a checkered history when it comes to addressing public incidents/issues – sometimes, he addresses them, most often not. I wouldn’t be surprised that he’s amused by this incident, and by some of the unrealistic scenarios that have been proposed for what may have happened. And given his history, “classy” is a description that I would never apply to Clay. lol

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I don’t regard anyone speculating that anyone else is gay as an insult, per se, but it does appear that Constantine expressed his opinion about Archie in a way that was meant to ridicule him, which was pretty douchey.

  • durbesque

    I am so much into the problems of the world, as reported by alternative media, I escape to this site for relief. 

    What’s going on in the world is so horrific and hopeless, none of which is reported on or in the government-controlled media, that I really should stop watching and reading, and just concern myself with the ups and downs of the lives and careers of singers.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/IDXVM7NCMXZVHX4M2RFBYOTYDA Robert

    It makes me laugh that Constantine actually called someone else “Corny”.

  • Montavilla

    I was going to say:  That’s the dandelion calling the corn yellow.

  • Idoling

    You think Clay just goes wherever he wants? No, you have to have a pass – and or meet & greet pass has to be given to go backstage. 
    What I presume Constantine is saying is that Clay not only wanted tickets to the show but a m&g pass too – probably not to “meet” CM, but to meet the cast of the show.

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    I am a fan of both Constantine and Clay.  It was a misunderstanding and should have been handled preoperly.  If Clay was unable to attend, a short note to Constantine would have been nice.  I do beleive Constantine regrets that comment about David.  Meeting David in person would have made him feel guilty.  Maybe he even apologized?  Who knows?

  • Idoling

    CM didn’t say that Clay needed him to get tickets. It could be that CM is only aware of the situation, because Clay’s “team” made “a BIG DEAL” of it – it is just as likely that the request went through the production office/DPAC and the whole cast and crew were aware.

  • kmd23

     I agree that if Archie does not care than no one else should. I do not think he does. They seemed to get along very well when the idols reunited a few years ago. It is in the past but some fans really still don’t like Con.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_PSHFTD4YV3QOE3INABJUXZSWMU hillstreetblooz

    Dude should brand and sell ConnieCorn in movie theaters – he could make a mint! I still laugh my ass off when thinking about him having the audacity to call somebody else corny, lol… Maybe all that silly eye f*cking he used to do to the Idol camera has left Chester with no in-sight, lol…

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Maybe all that silly eye f*cking he used to do to the Idol camera has left Chester with no in-sight, lol…”

    I remember laughing when Constantine did that on Idol! lol

  • Incipit

    I agree that if Archie does not care than no one else should. I do not think he does.

    Well, not really agreeing with that. Whether Archie or even DC cared or not, it still informed my opinion of Maroulis, whom I didn’t know at all at that point til he rudely stuck his foot in his mouth. I don’t care for either man’s music, Clay or Constantine –  the difference is, now I also don’t care for Maroulis as a person.

     Yes, Archie doesn’t care – and he didn’t when it occurred, even after a wanker of a DJ made a point to tell him what Constantine said, Archie just replied “that’s too bad”…but I think he’s had lots of practice dealing w/@$$hats.
     
    When David A and David C did that Ronald MacDonald House gig along w/Maroulis in NYC, in November of 2011, both Davids were totally polite to him, of course they would be…but I can’t imagine they would ever hang out by choice.

    But the tempest of hurt feelingsin a teacup that came of this is just ridiculous, IMO.

    “When American Idols Attack! Constantine Maroulis Calls Clay Aiken Out On Twitter
    Posted on Jan 13, 2013 @ 9:48AM | By Radar Staff”

    http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/01/when-american-idols-attack-constantine-maroulis-calls-clay-aiken-out-on-twitter/
    Excerpt:

    The Tony-nominated Constantine, who now has a highly successful stage career, and who finished in 6th place on season 4 of American Idol, also ranted on Twitter, “I’m sure there was a valid excuse…(None we heard) Or they jus wanted free tix ha!”

    But it seems Clay, who finished second on Idol season 2, is always getting in hot water. As RadarOnline.com recently reported, Clay slammed the show that made him famous before American Idol geared up for its 12th season premiere on FOX on Wednesday.While Clay has so far not responded to Constantine’s Tweets, some of his fans, known as Claymates, are on the rampage against the other Idol alum.  One fan with the handle MusicMarty tweeted, “sad to want publicity so much you would post this.  Gotta a problem?, fix it private”

    Clay even complained to The Hollywood Reporter last month, “Now Idol is about the judges.  I don’t even know if they remember there are contestants any more.”

  • fuzzywuzzy

    I think that “classy” is an apt description of both Archie and Cook.

  • Miz

    It became a drinking game for many viewers, as I recall.

    What I am SHOCKED by is that Connie must follow Clay on twitter to even see the pic tweeted from his account.

    ‘Corny’ is such an odd word to use.

    It’s also quite possible that Clay had his assistant (or whomever) call the theatre for M&G/tickets for his Mom and they assumed that Clay would be attending. (been there, done that)

    Not a fan of either parties, but really dislike Connie.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “What I am SHOCKED by is that Connie must follow Clay on twitter to even see the pic tweeted from his account.”

    No, that’s not true. Anyone can see the pic that Clay posted.

  • kmd23

     I have to agree that both Davids are more classy than Con would ever think of being. I want to think better of Constantine but then he always does something that proves he is still a jerk. Archie is just too nice.  I would love to know what Cook really thinks about Con. lol.

  • jumpstart4u

    I’m definitely no fan of Clay, but find it hilarious that Constantine would use the word “classy” … I can’t imagine that he has the slightest clue of what the word means. 

  • Miz

    He still had to be looking for it.

  • Sue123

    Actually, Connie does follow Clay on Twitter.

  • Jenna Russell

    CM has been following Clay for quite some time on Twitter, though Clay does not follow CM. That is how CM knew about the pic; otherwise he would have had to search out Clay’s tweets to see it.

  • abbysee

    It’s funny given so many instances of Clay being just as douchey and smarmy as Connie is, Clay is given the benefit of the doubt! That idol first impression has served him well!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Constantine following Clay does explain how he became aware of the photo (although I’ll bet that if he hadn’t known about it, one of the Claymates would have tweeted it to him lol). I could also see Constantine checking Clay’s twitter to see if he tweeted anything about the show. That doesn’t change the fact that Clay’s photo was available for everyone to see, not just his followers.

  • suenigma

    I don’t care for Clay or Constantine – they have both proven to be capable of behaving like jerks on more than one occasion. But in this case it was Constantine who went on the attack, publicly and uneccessarily. If it had been Clay going after Con for something so absurd and inconsequential, I’d probably be taking Con’s side here. 

  • bridgette12

    I think this whole thing has been blown porportion by Connie. It’s not that big of a deal and hopefully Clay will ignore the foolishness of it all and not engage in a feud with him.Constantine must have had Idols on his mind last night, he also tweeted Adam about some musical.

  • waitingforthe1

    Would they have given Clay free tickets and backstage passes had he said they were for his mother?  probably not, so perhaps Constantine’s beef is more about the deception than the actual action?  

    Clay is prone to lying and deceiving for his own gain and this is just one more example.  If his mother wanted to see the show Clay should’ve just bought her tickets and left the comped tickets at the box office with an explanation that he was unable to attend after all.

     I was just going to reply that is a pretty harsh statement unless you have absolute proof.

     I think this has totally been blown out of perportion. Constantine might have been better off asking Clay why he was not attending. There can always be last minute extenuating circumstances. I believe we have all been there.

  • http://www.facebook.com/beaugard.stevens Beaugard Stevens

    Kinda silly- why does Constantine care so much about Clay showing up anyway?  He should be happy anyone wants to come see him.

  • Idoling

    Dear Jenna, 
    Not to belabor the point, but you haven’t forgotten the years and years of him publicly denying (directly and indirectly) his sexuality so he could continue to sell records and concert tickets to the head-in-the-sand claymates that swore he was straight? 
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/09/23/clay-aiken-cradles-newbor_n_128713.html

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Clay is particular good at misleading his fans, like in this incident with Constantine where everyone who read his tweet and saw the picture assumed that he took the photo and attended the show. If he’s exposed like he was here, then he can honestly say that he didn’t say that he actually was at the show and took the picture. lol There are lots of other examples, but the Claymates know very well how misleading Clay can be.

  • suenigma

    Oh come on Idoling, there are plenty of valid reasons to dog on Clay Aiken. Hell, more than plenty. LOL. But being an entertainer trying to make a living in a homophopic society and remaining closeted is hardly one of them. He is not the first and he will not be the last. I don’t consider it inordinately deceptive for him to have kept the PRIVATE details of who he was having sex with ambiguous or even hidden from his fans for an extended period of time. I do consider it kinda creepy that his fans cared who he was having sex with though.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    The problem is that Clay’s fanbase had a very large proportion of conservative, evangelical religious fans (from his image on Idol) for whom being gay was a deal breaker, and he knew that, so in order to continue receiving their support, he had to continue to give them the impression (which wasn’t hard, given their mindset), that he was straight. What I didn’t like was that so many of these rabid, anti-gay fans patrolled the internet attacking and bullying anyone who speculated that Clay was gay, and Clay never said a word, nor indicated that there was nothing “wrong” with being gay.

  • Jenna Russell

    Not to belabor the point, but he never made a public declaration before September 2008 because as he put it, it is no one’s business. There was no lying involved. If anyone took anything he said as a denial, it would have been a matter of interpretation. 
    Everyone is entitled to come out when they are ready and not when gossips demand it. Everyone who ever came out made attempts to hide their sexuality until they were ready to talk about it. Are we going to demonize Ricky Martin, Elton John, Neil Patrick Harris, David Hyde Pierce and every other gay person who ever hid in the closet or is it just Clay?

  • suenigma

    Deceptive about attending what show? He never identified the show. It was a random photo that he obviously liked, posted and didn’t elaborate upon – where is the deception?

  • Jenna Russell

    “It’s funny given so many instances of Clay being just as douchey and smarmy as Connie is”
    I can’t think of any instances like this. Can you provide any links?

  • abbysee

    I could, but I am sure it would be followed by pictures of him wearing a halo, so it’s really not worth my while.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “Not to belabor the point, but he never made a public declaration before September 2008 because as he put it, it is no one’s business. There was no lying involved. If anyone took anything he said as a denial, it would have been a matter of interpretation. ”

    Sorry, but that’s just not true, and even Clay had admitted to this. I’m not sure how long you have been a fan, but shortly after Idol ended, Clay stated that he was not gay and admitted in his blog when he came out that he had lied in an interview with RollingStone magazine.

    When the subject of his sexuality came up then, Aiken said “One thing I’ve found of people in the public eye, either you’re a womanizer or you’ve got to be gay. Since I’m neither one of those, people are completely concerned about me. They’re like, ‘What are you, then?’

    http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/clay-aiken-in-2003-people-think-youre-a-womanizer-or-youre-gay-20080925

    After that, although it was stated repeatedly in different media reports and voiceovers on broadcast interviews, Clay claims that he never denied being gay again, and technically, that was true, but he continued to mislead his fans. In fact, in a 2006 interview with Larry King Live, where Larry tried to get Clay to admit that he was gay, Clay refused to do so, but did refer back to his original denial in RollingStone, so that was misleading again. The reality is that it could be argued that these anti-gay fans wore blinkers and were incredibly naive, but that doesn’t excuse the manipulation and misleading statements, and Clay’s refusal to try to stop his fans attacking and bullying, or at least speak out against it. Given that, I often find it ironic that Clay now speaks out against bullying. lol

    “Everyone is entitled to come out when they are ready and not when gossips demand it. Everyone who ever came out made attempts to hide their sexuality until they were ready to talk about it. Are we going to demonize Ricky Martin, Elton John, Neil Patrick Harris, David Hyde Pierce and every other gay person who ever hid in the closet or is it just Clay?”

    I agree that everyone has their own “timetable” for coming out, and Clay is no exception, but following the history here, it’s hard not to conclude that continuing the deception was important to Clay’s career, and he’s been disingenuous since coming out in denying that it had any negative impact on his career, which I feel is his way of deflecting any criticism in this direction. I understand his fears and have sympathy that coming from his background with an evangelical religious family, that it was difficult to come to terms with it, but that doesn’t explain why he has been less than forthcoming even since coming out. Since this is getting off topic, I’ll stop there.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    lol So true!

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Sorry, we’re going to have to agree to disagree here. There’s no way that one can read that tweet and show that picture and not assume that Clay took the picture while he was at that particular show.

    . “I don’t consider it inordinately deceptive for him to have kept the PRIVATE details of who he was having sex with ambiguous or even hidden from his fans for an extended period of time. I do consider it kinda creepy that his fans cared who he was having sex with though.”

    Lol, it’s par for the course for fans to want to know about relationships their favorites have. Whether its posts about Cook and his “scene queen” (which was hilarious) or freak outs on twitter because of his Target sighting with a girl, Carrie and her romantic history including Romo, Crawford or her hubby, Jordin and DeRulo, etc etc etc.

  • suenigma

    I still love yah Fuzzy, but we are so philisophically far apart on this one…

    I definitely do not hold Clay, or Adam, or Cook, or Archuleta, or Taylor (or any of the other Idols with notoriously wacky fanbases) responsible for the beliefs, attitudes or behaviours of some of their more zealous fans. Nor do I think it’s their repsonsibility to scold, educate or reform said fans. That is career suicide at best, and potentially dangerous at worst.

    Lest we forget, when Cook had the audacity to write a polite but firm open letter to his fans asking them to respect his privacy and to not cross certain boundaries (knocking on his hotel room door, attaching GPS devices to his bus, etc) he was vilified in the press and labled an entitled douchebag by many. He definitely keeps his mouth shut when it comes to his fan’s behavior now. In fact, he just generally keeps his mouth shiut now (this is why we can’t have nice things, LOL).à

    I was also horrified when certain sectors of the gay community publicly criticized Adam for not being a stronger gay advocate during his first album era, as if it was his duty or something. Ridiculous! I do applaud both Clay and Adam for speaking out against bullying – Clay’s apparent silence regarding Gay Rights does not negate that. I understand that Clay was raised in a conservative Christian home, so perhaps there was some personal internal conflict at play. Or perhaps he was just trying to preserve his career. Either way, I get it.

  • suenigma

    Good point Melly! I get the natural curiousity about their love lives, I suppose, but I just don’t get why some of them really, really, REALLY care. KWIM? For instance, it will forever remain a mystery to me why Cook lost fans when he dated a certain other Idol from Clay’s season. It’s all so strange to me.

    I had a lengthy response written, but it was so off topic that I decided not to post it. I’ll just say that I love yah too, but disagree. lol

  • MellyPer1692

    I think that because its Idol, some people care a lot more about their personal lives. Lots of people hold their favorite up to be a standard for whatever ideals they feel an idol should be. In Clays case, I think part of his appeal for some of his most fervent fans, besides his talent which is great, was the southern, Christian, special-Ed teacher who loved his mama and pretty much was asexual. When he came out, it was devastating for some. Not the majority, but some and those people are often the loudest.

    Or…they just wish it was them he was involved with instead. Lol

  • workdog

     I hesitate to wade into the discussion but I will say that I’m with suenigma on this; it really, really is no one’s business UNLESS the person chooses to include them in their circle. I don’t for a moment feel that a “fan” can be deceived as to orientation’s impact on THEM as they aren’t likely to be involved on a realistically personal basis of that extreme, i.e., a relationship that goes beyond support of the artist, enjoyment of their work, etc., as much as they may wish it or think they should be…that thought process is on them, imo. I just don’t see where the artist/actor/whatever has a responsibility to make it a point of order to keep a follower. Honestly, regardless of that, the times were and are very, very different than they were at the time of the Rolling Stone interview, or even the intervening years, excepting the last three to four. I haven’t heard, read, nor seen an interview with Aiken where he explicitly demeaned the gay community nor have I seen the same of  him falsely flaunting a false relationship with a woman. I certainly don’t think the man walks on water but he doesn’t seem to be the devil incarnate either.:-) The whole coming to terms with one’s self really isn’t all that cut and dried, for anyone, really. Walking in another’s shoes is an old adage but it truly does fit. I personally feel that looking from the outside gives just that…an outside view. No one but the person can testify to their own thoughts, feelings, motives, etc. It’s just not possible. But, of course, that doesn’t negate the drive some in our current times feel to dissect and discern, vent and value what ever they feel is the “right” timing, means, reason, or justifications for a public person’s choice to open their lives…or not. It just doesn’t seem warranted in order to listen to a voice or watch a performer do their chosen profession; it’s completely irrelevant to talent and “need to know”. Just feels invasive and unnecessary…but not surprising given our tabloid-esque psyche at times.;-)

    As to the “subject” of this original post, Constantine, imo, is out of line. If it went down as he seemingly posted he still should have taken the high road and not vented like a petty schoolboy on a public forum. Really, if it bothered him that much I would imagine he could have contacted the appropriate parties and aired his discontent. As it is he comes off as petulant and in need of attention. Not surprising, really, but it still makes him look childish and in need of some reassurance that he, indeed, is the man. Tough assignment, that one.:-)

    By the way, go on with your badself Jodie Foster. Lo

  • fuzzywuzzy

    “I certainly don’t think the man walks on water but he doesn’t seem to be the devil incarnate either.”

    lol Who is claiming that Clay is “the devil incarnate”? Lots that I could write in response (with links to support the contrary of much of what you wrote), but I don’t want to go off topic. The “Clay saga” has been very interesting over the years and continues to be, and the attempts of revisionist history are also interesting. 

  • Citizen Patriot

    Been following Aiken since the beginning…. keep up with Maroulis less & less…. the only one I’ve truly seen guilty of douchebaggery is the later, over & over again.  King Constadouche of the Bagoulis, he is known far & wide.  This latest pissy rant is no surprise. 

  • waitingforthe1

    So Clay gets his people to score him free tickets and back stage passes to a show in his home town, under the guise that HE will be attending (which would get some press at least locally one would hope) and instead he sends his mom and his assistant to the show.  He gets called out on it and suddenly it’s Constaintine who is the douche? 

    Let’s be real here Clay is guilty of either 1) deception for getting the tickets under false pretenses or 2) rudeness for not giving the show a heads up that he was unable to atttend so he was sending someone in his place so as not to waste the tickets.

    Add in Clay’s tweet from the seats and the obvious intent to make it appear that he was there and I think on the douche-o-meter Clay wins this round.

I did, however, wish to point out the original post was NOT aimed at yourself, hence the eta, and if it hadn’t been late when I posted it I might of made the connection that it is acceptable to leave a blank post and move to a new one. I really hadn’t considered it. Ah well. As to the rest? I do acknowledge this thread isn’t about Aiken and his legacy of douchiness but it seems that if there were proofs and links perhaps they should be provided in regard to definitive statements….alas, I do want to avoid MJ having a stroke brought on by straying so very wide from topic so I guess the next time (as there’s always a next time in Idolworld, lol) will have to suffice. My main point was really only about the privacy issue so I’ll save that discussion for when it reappears.

    One other thing, is there a way to quote properly? Another fail in my blog posting skillz.:-)

     Are we 100% sure that is what actually happened??? Clay doesn’t need Constantine to get tickets. He is a major patron of the DPAC theater and can get tickets any time he wants.
     I am disappointed for Constantine as he really seems disappointed he did not get to meet Clay? This has been blown way out of proportion.

  • Allison

    This whole “tempest” is hysterical. We don’t know for sure what went on in the background, all we know is Clay posted a picture, for some reason.
    I do know that Clay is a big fan of “Jekyll & Hyde” and loves to sing “This is the Moment”. DPAC is in his backyard; I think he’d be very interested in attending this particular musical there with the added bonus of a fellow Idol alum performing. If he didn’t go, something must have come up.
    Both Clay and Connie are very good at musical theater and similar in “corny” style and moodiness. Perhaps Connie thinks that Clay is in competition for the role in a future run and this is what irritated him.

  • Chicagolaw

    This is hilarious because I think they are both incredibly corny.

  • Trina

    Eh, I know Con can be douchy but i have a TON of respect for him for how hard hes been working over the years to build a good name for himself in the theater world and from what I have seen of him hes a good actor. Clay isnt exactly a big star anymore so I doubt Con NEEDS any attention by him (tell me Clay wouldnt have killed for that Tony nom). Both of them can be idiots =bBut for me Clay clearly gave the impression he was there. for what? He didnt have to announce he was at a funeral but tweeting that pic served no purpose. Did anyone honestly believe as soon as he tweeted that he wasnt there?

    Oh and the irony about “breaking camera rules”. clay bitched and moaned constantly about cameras on stage in the past.

    Well, if it’s not what happened, Clay would clearly have corrected the information via twitter, the same way he did when Donald Trump called out the head of Unicef for driving a fancy car. 

    Clay’s silence, IMO, says that he did exactly what Constaintine said he did…got free tickets under the pretense of attending the show and then let someone else use the tickets.

    As for Constaintine being upset at not meeting Clay…LMAO…I’m sure they’ve met already…however, perhaps it was Clay’s mom or assistant who wanted to meet Constaintine, hence Clay’s lie to get them backstage.
