Apparently Clay’s star hasn’t stayed quite so shiny in the eyes of the show that made him famous, at least as evidenced by the “nickel tour” and shitty treatment he received upon making a surprise visit to Idol’s LA soundstage last week — where he hoped to “give a pep talk” to the remaining contestants, including his big gay crush, Adam Lambert.
Producers and reps from “American Idol” have had a long-simmering feud with Clay because he was one of the first contestant to bolt from 19 Entertainment, the management company that oversees the recording deals, merchandising, touring, sponsorship, and movie deals for “Idol” stars. Network execs believe that Clay encouraged Kelly Clarkson to cut her ties with the show as well.
“They’ve always held a grudge against Clay for that,” revealed the insider. “So when he showed up at the ‘Idol’ studios and asked if he could give a little pep talk to the remaining finalists, they told Clay thanks… but no thanks.
We’re just glad he didn’t take off his top and run screaming into Adam Lambert’s dressing room.
