    I never said Clay isn't talented. I have his first album and generally like it. I wanted him to win the season he was on, and I love his voice. I could care less what his orientation is. I was just stating that he has yet to come out publicly, even though most people know anyway (just don't tell the ClayMates that).

    I didn't state or imply anywhere in my post that you didn't think Clay was talented. I think we're both making the same point - that his orientation makes no difference.

    Homophobia pisses me off to no end, but I agree that I just don't see it here. Simon has always mocked certain contestants' physical appearances, and in this case, he just did it in the immediately obvious way. I don't think the judges really give a damn if the contestants are gay, but they do care about the way they look and sound.

    I kinda like Simon... even though he told the World Idol that he sings like an angel but looks like a hobbit, but it's true (I don't fully agree on the 'angel'-part though) :p

    Simon is harsh, but so is the media and the music business...
    Mmm... Am I wrong, or did it just get fatter in here?

    If you go to the 3rd paragraph down and read through the end (including page 23 and part of page 24-the pages are short) there's something about him that I liked a lot when I read it. I felt bad for the guy, until he started his rant about prejudice b/c he was a guy singing a girl's song. Then I started to agree with the TWoP recapper's take on it.
