Clay Aiken Fans Responsible for Adam Lambert Smear?

Clay Aiken Fans Responsible for Adam Lambert Smear?-photo

Intriguing new developments have popped up in the curious story of Adam Lambert's supposed bad attitude.

Earlier this week, a report surfaced that American Idol runner-up Lambert had turned into a terror on the publicity trail, with people who had supposedly worked with him characterizing the singer as "such a diva" and "rude to everyone."

And now, claims the blog Clay Aiken 411, the true source of the story has been revealed.

The site says that fans of former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken—popularly known as "Claymates"—orchestrated the story in an effort to "get even" with Lambert.

There's been increasing bad blood between Aiken and Lambert in the past couple of weeks. After Aiken slammed Lambert's performance on his Web site, Lambert cheekily shot back that Aiken was trying to "ride my coattails." 

And now, it appears, the escalating feud may have led Clay's fans to engage in a touch of character assassination.

Luckily, Adam has the support of good friends to get him through these difficult times.

Readers, have your say in the comments section: Do you think the Claymates are responsible for smearing Adam Lambert's reputation, or do you think the diva tag is warranted?

    I've never been impressed by Clay, in the talent department or whatever dept. Am not a Clay hater either but I do find him rather pompous. However, the day I read his remarks on Adam and the way he wrote to "apologise" later, it sort of confirmed for me what a pathetic person he is. To be fair though, much as I dislike people like him, I don't tend to believe his fans were the ones behind the Adam's smear campaign. It's also not right for people to spread this if it isn't true. The MSNBC "reporter" shd be held accountable for it. (Come to think of it, I'd like to join Whomp and the others is saying "Clay Aiken has fans??" *WG*

    Adam is an extraordinary singer! Every time I go back to my DVR to listen to him sing (especially Mad World), I get goosebumps. He is just amazing. I love everything about him, even the black nail polish. Not on anybody else; just on him. I love his smile, and I am in love with his voice. I don't care what they say. I think many are jealous, including Clay, because Adam is getting so much attention. I can't wait until he has his own concert, however, right now I'll see him at the American Idol Tour concert on Sept. 8. GO ADAM!

    I love Adam , the fact that I have been entertained by a World Master, A gift to us, Google Quiet Desperation and listen to the King of Bliss, tender, real, handsome and HOT HOT HOT. What a sweet gem. I feel priviledged to have been smitten by a Genius. Adam, know that you are loved beyone measure and a cherished blessing to the world with your passion. We are the lucky ones. The words to Quiet desperation are haunting and can be googled too. Thank You.

    I am a self-professed "claymate" and have been since 2003. However, I think Adam is great and a very talented young man. I think both of them have something to offer the music world. This story needs to go by the way-side. Competition is what the music/entertainment world is all about. You have two very different artists with two very different styles. I probably won't by any CD by Adam Lambert b/c I don't like that style of music, but the fact remains, that there is talent there and it needs to be respected, not only by their fans, but by the artists themselves.

    I never believed the rumors about Adam being rude, just doesnt fit him. Anyhow, I think Clay Aiken may be a tad jealous about Adam Lambert and the great singer that he is. He may also be using this as a ploy just to get Adam's attention. May even have the hots for him!

    Oh for heaven sakes. Clay fans had nothing to do with it. The owner of that website is a nutjob who is NOT associated with Clay and who apparently went after him too at one time . I doubt that there is 'bad blood' between Clay and Adam. I think they probably haven't even thought about it since the exchange -- they, at least have better things to do with their lives. The only apparent 'feud' is the manufactured one stirred up by gossip columnists and nutjobs. Clay is a good guy. Adam is a good guy. Their fans are great people. Trolls love to stir 'stuff' online. End of story. Sheesh.

    what a bunch of crap. clay aiken has some strange fans, but the strangest one of them all is the guy who runs ClayAiken411. Many of Aiken's fans are Lambert fans, too. If anyone tried to spread false rumors about Adam, it is a fan who also has a blog called Chexxxy's Pearls. I hope Adam avoids the 411 guy and Chexxxy at all costs. If he does, he should be fine.

    Don't go blaming Clay, his fans, or Adam and his fans on this DIVA issue. There IS someone who's a 'fan' of both and is spreading these stupid rumours just to get a rise and rift out of fans of both. Don't trust what John Paulus says - he's just a famewhore, nothing more.

    Why are you blaming Clay Aiken and his fans? It's a baseless accusation. Why are you perpetuating the very thing you are condemning, i.e. quoting unreliable "sources" as facts? The only person we should hold accountable right now is Courtney Hazlett.

    I wouldn't doubt it

    Those who have followed the underhanded tactics of the Claymates for years have absolutely no doubt of their capabilities. After the "Ripa Incident" they set out a smear campaign against her husband publishing photos of him as a male stripper (or something like that) and they made sure to dig any dirt on them they could. I wouldn't put it passed them to try smear Adam. Having said that and as much as I despise the Claymates, I believe that they are not as powerful or are there as many as they used to be. They may have planted the seed, but ultimately the responsibility lies on the "journalist" who printed a story without proper verification of the facts. Maybe she's just another rabid Claymate, LOL!

    I can't believe that there are so many gullible people out there who will believe anything that is written.No one tries to get the true facts anymore. One person writes some trash and another picks up their trash and runs with it. I don't believe any of it unless I hear it straight from the stars themselves. Shame on all of you. Your just sheep being led to slaughter. Since I have met Clay I know he is a really great guy and I'm sure that Adam is nice as well.

    As a journalist myself, I think it is important that the MSNBC editors knows the kind of crap their so-called reporter is spewing. Courtney Hazlett needs to be held accountable for falling for these "unnamed sources" who clearly are laughing hysterically at her gullibility. She is an embarrassment to journalism and her alma mater Columbia U. Write the editor at denisehazlick@msnbc.com.

    John Paulus, who posted on his blog that this was the work of Clay's fans is notorious Clay hater who will do or say anything to smear Clay so the report about Clay's fans is no better than the report about Adam. Courtney Hazlett has been challenged to name her "sources", seeing as they contradict everything ever said by anyone else who has worked with Adam, before AI, in the past six months during AI and in the past few weeks since AI. Still she hasn’t. I mean, surely, what would these people have to fear from linking their names to any criticisms of Adam? Oh, yeah, that’s right ……………….. they can’t be named because they don’t actually exist. COURTNEY HAZLETT NEEDS TO FIRED ONCE AND FOR ALL. SHE IS A LIABILITY. I wish so-called journalists would stop embarrassing themselves and their profession by simply copying and pasting a "report" made up by an MSNBC hack who was merely annoyed by Adam's people telling her that he was too busy to give her an interview. The silly mare took umbrage because she was made to feel less important than the other people who Adam had to see. Guess what? She is less important and her constant sailing close to the libellous wind in order to try to make herself a name does her no favours. As for being rude to fans, do you think that in this day and age of blogs, posts and videophones, if Adam had been rude to any fans, they would have been backwards in coming forwards on numerous websites or would have shyed away from putting up photographic evidence or footage of any incident? I take it this “diva” is the same guy who was accosted by paparazzi during a visit to his doctor the other day. Now, I don't know about you but I don't visit my doctor when I am feeling my best so if ever there was an excuse for Adam to be less than cordial, it may have been then, but still he managed to stay calm and pleasant with them and let them take photographs, and still they wouldn’t let him get back to his car without chasing him up and down the stairs a couple of times. Diva? Rude? Give me strength!

    Clay fans are not behind the smear against Adam. Many Clay fans are fans of Adam too, know Clay's snarky sense of humor well, and didn't take seriously the first Clay comment, but wish Clay had said it differently and that the media had not singled out the one comment to focus on. Dual fans support both talents. The rest of you need to get over it.

    When Adam performed at AI and he was done performing, what he would do was turn around and thank the band and whoever he can thank in the back who contributed to his performance. I believe that he was the ONLY contestant in AI that consistently thanked the band and others after his performances. Smearing Adam in the news with FALSE information is not a good thing to do.

    It is such a shame that being a fan of someone should be this hard. I don't believe Clay or his fans are behind any conspiracy against Adam. They have had that done to Clay for years. They know better...okay there are weirdo's out there but don't blame a whole group for a few sickos. I think both Adam and Clay are VERT talented. Both VERY different performers who will appeal to different genre's of audiences. No reason to slam either one or their fans. Please people be kind, neither of them deserve this. Just enjoy who you like and STOP!!!! giving these websites credit for news that means nothing.

  • Crikey

    Why is everyone saying Clay slammed Adam. For chrissakes, he didn't like ROF. And becuz he didn't like that performance, he is now accused of being behind a MSNBC article calling Adam a diva. GAWD people get a f*cking grip.

    Having been in the idol fandom for many years it wouldn't be a stretch to believe that Claymates planted this story, however, the fact that it's been supposedly "uncovered" by the psycho who has basically been stalking Clay for the last 3 or 4 years I'd take that information with a grain of salt. The Claymates are a ruthless bunch to be sure when they feel someone has slighted their boy but I'm not sure they are as numerous as they used to be and therefore their ability to reek havoc is limited. The blame lies squarely on the reporter, even if the story was planted by the Claymates. She had the responsibilty to contact the producers and other behind the scenes personnel at the shows Adam appeared on to attempt to get verification. If they gave a no comment then sure it's likely the stories are true... however, if they refuted them then she could toss the source out as unreliable. The article in question isn't a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Worse will be written about Adam over the course of his career. His fans would be wise to grow an thicker skin and let it slide. He'll be fine and he doesn't need his fans protection. Sit back and just enjoy Adam. He's gonna be around for a long time.

    Hazelett was a disgusting parasite to have printed the original piece of shisht. It would have been her responsibility to check out any sources she supposedly had (all unnamed) if she so desired to. We don't need further unsubstantiate reports to further spread negative trash about someone else as a result We all know that. Adam is a gracious, respectful, thoughtful, considerate, compassionate, humble, sincere, kind-hearted person and that we all should be grateful he is a such a wonderful role model. He will have a positive influence on more than he will ever know Hazelett needs to crawl into the hole this dirt belongs in and let the reliable news sources give us the positive news about Adam we are interested in reading about, such as his awesome talent, events he will be involved in, and some of the efforts he makes to show kindness to others, etc.

    Peace everybody. Don't let the stalkers and troublemakers do it to you. Adam fans, be warned. They threw the same crap at Clay for years. Just trying to make fan wars, all over again. Clay was called a diva and it was never true. They take any incident , twist and embellish until it is hideous. Like the foot on the airplane armrest - they never told that he was asleep and some lady was hitting him. The FBI was investigating her, not him. There are simple answers for anything you hear, whether about Adam or about Clay. It is part of the fame game. They tried to get Clay, Kelly and Ruben fans to hate each other. It worked for a while too, but the three stars were always close and adoring each other. They will try it with Kris and Adam to. Don't let it ruin the fun of being a fan of a very talented and likeable artist. It can.

    To Adam's fans before you believe that Clay or his fans are trying to hurt Adam please do a little research, Clay has been stalked by a sicko named john paulas for years, he would do anything to hurt Clay and his fans.

    I think this whole thing is getting out of hand, and none of this is necessary. I would think the fans who know Adam wouldn't believe this stuff for a minute. Clay Aiken 's fans couldn't convince Ms Hazlett to report something without naming sources unless she wanted to. I am a big fan of Adam Lambert, and I think the fans on both sides should just let this blow over, and die down. i think they are both fine young men. As far as Spike Lee is concerned , as a fellow African-american, I know for a fact that Spike Lee could care less about anything said by Ms Hazlett, I'm sure he laughed at her afterwards. It's really sad that someone else's popularity bothers this woman, go take singing lessons sweetie!

    Actually I blame it all on Courtney Hazlett, a hack that some how MSNBC employs. This isn't her first smear campaign. She is famous for using "anonymous" sources. In other words made up or totally unreliable. Aiken was the one who took the first shot so I don't see why his fans would get that upset and anyway after all these years are they that rabid any more? Everyone knew it was made up because article after article was appearing saying how polite and well mannered Adam was. When this Hazlett piece of trash was published many journalists slammed her and came to Adam's side. Hazlett never met the guy. The people who came to Adam's side were journalists who had interviewed him. See Michelle Collins article on VH1 as well as several others. Two bit journalists like Hazlett should not be allowed to publish. I don't know if it was Claymates feeding her info which she blindly and stupidy published ( I truly hope they are above this) or it was Hazlett herself going off the deepend. There has also been a lot of talk about Adam's publicist having to reschedule and interview Hazlett was involved in and Hazlett went on her rampage.

    I'm sorry to say I used to be a huge Clay Aiken fan. Not anymore. Adam Lambert has always been nice and humble and thankful to everything given him. He has worked really hard to make it in show business. If you see some of the clips of the photographers chasing and I do mean chasing him around it is sad. I felt like Adam was being hounded. And now the story from this woman and Clay Aiken fans trying to run a smear campaign on him. Well I don't believe it to be true. Any press that is bad press on Adam Lambert is just wrong.

It seems the media is just itching to start rumors and spread lies. Everything I've heard about Adam is that he is a really nice person, well liked by all the other finalists. And I can't imagine Clay starting a feud like this. This has never been typical of Clay to do this. But typical of the news media? Oh yeah!!

A lot of people are looking for any and all dirt on Adam, and try as they may, they're not gonna find much. Whether that loser Clay Aiken is behind it or not remains to be seen, but the author of the original fairytale about Adam is the one who should be held responsible for spreading it.

Anyone who has followed Adam knows that he is too much of a gentleman, humble as can be, and grateful to all around for their support to ever be rude to ANYONE, even Clay Aiken. Clay really hurt his own image with his attack on Adam. Guess he's one of the jealous ones, as well. I LOVED Adam's response to that attack. I'm a fan to stay, Adam. Love you to pieces. And I don't believe a word of the trash that the writer of that hogwash is attempting to circulate out there in an attempt to bring you down.

    Nobody is going to believe lies from 'unnamed' sources! I guess some people are just jealous of the most incredible talent to come along in decades! Adam Lambert, you are making soooooo many people happy, we can't wait for your first album. WE LOVE YOU

    I wish people would leave Adam Lambert alone. Clay Aiken should crawl under a rock and stay there. He gives the music industry a bad name. He STINKS with a capital S. When Clay was on Regis/Kelli show, Kelli couldn't stand sitting next to Clay's pompous a-hole.

    Hah! Goes to show how much interest there is in Adam Lambert when a two sentence "article" with no named sources blazes through the internet. I'm going with Kris Allen who "adores the guy." Now that's a reliable source

    Sounds like sour grapes by Clay and his followers to me. Clay will never measure up to Adam in the talent , looks or charm department and the more he trashes Adam the more he hurts himself.

    Adam is a gentleman and has been delightful, humble, and genuine in all his post-idol TV and radio interviews, He is way too smart and savvy to act like a diva. This report smelled from the start to be false and fictional, Whether the smear was the work of the MSN gossip reporter or the Claymates, it just never rang true. Adam is fabulous and his fans are NOT going to turn on him when LIES are printed! GO ADAM, YOU ARE THE BEST !!!

    Dirt, dirt, dirt! You'd think for someone who has a master's degree in journalism from Columbia University that Courtney Hazlett would have written an "article" with more class. Instead, she resorted to tabloid trash and desperate lies to get her one minute of fame. Shame on her and shame on MSNBC for releasing that "article" and keeping her employed. The name of her gossip column should be changed from "The Scoop" to "The Poop". I am a HUGE Adam Lambert fan. And, having spent HOURS watching interviews upon interviews with Adam, time after time after time, he has consistently and genuinely been the ultimate gentleman - intelligent, kind, funny, articulate, and honest. After singing on Regis & Kelly, you can hear him in the background thanking them and telling them how much he appreciated being on their show. Adam is a multi-talented, creative/artistic genius. I LOVE what I hear, I LOVE what I see, and I LOVE how Adam's voice makes me feel. I can't wait to get those front row seats to HIS (not American Idol's) first (of many) concerts!

    Nothing to date, anywhere would suggest that Adam is acting like a diva. I just don't see it. This is a guy who is shocked, overwhelmed and truly grateful for his new found celebrity status. Even if he was even a hint of a diva, he's intelligent enough to know you don't take that path early in your career. I think it's a bunch of bull by someone who's obviously not an Adam Lambert fan.

    No smear. No foundation to the Lambert is a Diva story either. Kris Allen is supposed to sing the for the big NBA game Sunday and Adam Lambert is supposed to recieve the a Young Hollywood Award this weekend, why not report the real stuff instead?

    I don't think that MSNBC "reporter" needed any help to plot her character assassination: she's been responsible for major gaffes and inaccuracies before (google Courtney Hazlett, Spike Lee for a great example).

    I'm an Adam fan but this has nothing to do with Clay's fans. The person who wrote that blog mentioned above is not reliable. Adam is not a diva and doesn't deserve the tag.
