Let's see if we can follow the logic of ex American Idol contestant Clay Aiken, who charges his fans money annually to access his blog.
He castigated the current runner-up American Idol, Adam Lambert, in one of his blog musings only to have it come back and bite him.
Now, Aiken has issued an apology of sorts, but blames you the reader and all entertainment websites that got wind of Aiken's own words for stirring up a hornet's nest that he now claims is totally unfounded.
The comment that set "the blogosphere" off was the insult he penned about Lambert's rendition of a Johnny Cash classic song, "Ring of Fire."
"It makes my ears bleed," wrote the openly gay Idol ex, who favors Broadway to pop.
The Broadway star again took to his pay-for-play members-only blog last night to address his earlier statements about Lambert.
Aiken writes, "I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard. Any performer hopes that their music will appeal to all people, but no singer realistically expects it to."
"My opinion is just that, only my opinion, but for as much as some of the blogger's seem to dislike me and care so little about my thoughts, they sure can waste a lot of their space on what I say," complained Aiken, who started this whole nonsense.
Aiken further apologized for his withering remarks. "The only person I would really dream of apologizing to is Adam. And the irony is, if he's smart he couldn't give a crap what I think." Aiken continued, "I do apologize to Adam for my colorful (and negative) choice of words. I hope he can forgive me. I imagine he doesn't give a damn!"
