Tell Us: What Do You Think of Clay's New Look?

09/15/2006 at 09:12 AM ET

Clay Aiken’s got a new album, A Thousand Different Ways, dropping on Tuesday, but let’s face it: What everyone’s talking about is his makeover! We’re used to seeing a fresh-faced, spiky-haired Clay Aiken, but on the finale of American Idol, Clay premiered his new "I’m a downtown-hipster" shaggy ‘do.  Judging by his album art, this is the look he’s going to be working for a while. But this new k.d. lang-meets-disaffected-myspacer image just looks a little forced to us. Tell us what you think: Is Clay’s new look an improvement? Or do you prefer the old hair?

I think Clay Aiken’s new look is INCREDIBLY HOT. I have heard his cd on the Clear Channel Sneak Peak. Before hearing it I was dismayed by the mostly covers cd…….now I am AMAZED by what he does with these songs…..and DUMBSTRUCK with what he does with his VOICE on these. I am a fan and still was surprised. YOU GO CLAY. Sept. 19th can’t come soon enough for me.

He looks like a girl, that’s pretty scary

I like his new hair style. I think he looks more trendy. No matter how he looks, he will always have an excellent singing voice.

Sammy on

The new look is awesome!

I see a lot of young and not so young men with this hair cut these days. Looks like Clay is right in style, as usual. In the end, hair is just hair, it’s the voice and the persona that impresses me!!! The new album is fantastic.

Personally I like the old look better especially the picture up top. Very handsome, although I don’t think the new look is feminine at all. It’s what’s in right now. But seriously it’s NOT about the look, Clay’s vocals on this new CD are extraordinary as well as the arrangements for these timeless songs. Great job Clay!

Oh yeah, those who want to keep talking about the “rumors”, tune in to GMA next week when Clay finally answers to those!

He looks 12 with his new do. He just looks soooooooooo much younger and not in a good way!

Call me a geek, but I love Clay Aiken. His talent makes up for his awkward style any day.

I like the new look very much, the style is very in right now. I think he looks great, but the main thing is he has a voice that is super and no matter how he looks, that MAN can sing.

I love both his old and new looks– actually, I love that he has so MANY different looks (maybe “A Thousand Different” ones?). He is NEVER boring! Neither of these 2 pictures are ones that I feel are especially flattering, and that’s too bad, because there are so many fantastic pictures out there that really show him as the handsome, cute-or-hot MAN that he really is. But there’s no denying the VOICE!
