Star magazine reports that despite the constant rumors that he’s gay, ‘American Idol’ finalist Clay Aiken insists otherwise. An insider says, “Finally, after weeks of wondering, a couple of the girls on the show decided to confront him and ask point-blank: ‘Are you gay, or what?’ Clay didn’t hesitate. He insisted that he is straight.” Aiken’s comments didn’t seem to convince the girls, as the insider added, “I’ve overheard things like: ‘Everyone thinks he’s gay anyway, so why doesn’t he just admit it?'” Either way, it doesn’t seem to have effected his popularity. “Gay or straight, Clay is definitely going to make it to the top three,” concludes the insider.
