Elton John spoke with ‘Access Hollywood’ co-host Billy Bush about ‘American Idol’ season two runner-up Clay Aiken’s recent interview on ‘Primetime Live’. Billy asked the singer, “Diane Sawyer asked Clay Aiken in an interview if he was gay. Is that understandable that Diane would ask that question?” Sir Elton responded, “Well, she’s a journalist. That’s her job. There’s been so many rumors about Clay in certain papers, that he has to expect if he’s being interviewed by someone like Diane Sawyer, that question is going to come up. A journalist has to do that. I don’t even care if Clay Aiken is gay or not. I mean, it’s none of my business.”
