No, not his baby. Clay Aiken has a good hold on him these days…but his record label dropped him this week. Are you shocked? Well if you have been keeping up with the RCA label and their feelings towards American Idol contestants you wouldn’t be. Clay Aiken is not the first.
In recent months over at RCA there has been a whirlwind of American Idol talent that have been dropped. Some of the names, like Clay Aiken are surprising. Others include Blake Lewis, Katharine McPhee, Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard. Some now speculate that Clay being dropped this week is just part of RCA cleaning house, while others wonder if it is something more.
The last year has brought a lot of controversy around Clay Aiken from his sexuality to the fact that he chose to have a child with a friend out of wedlock. Could that be the real reason? Could RCA really be that closed minded? We hope not.
We just aren’t sure though what RCA has against American Idol all of a sudden. Why start giving all of their American Idol recording artists the boot? One thing is for sure – Alexis Grace, Michael Sarver and Danny Gokey better think twice before signing a contract with the record label. Their careers will likely be over before they get started.
