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 he looks hot! Of course, you would put up an awkward picture of him instead of using the album art, but that’s what People does, isn’t it? Create stories where there are none? But really, it doesn’t matter of his hair is long, short or non-existant. It’s really about the voice. Who buys a CD beause they like the guy’s hair?

I LOVE the new hairdo!! It makes him look very sexy to me. I loved the old one too, but this one is yummy.

I love it. I think he looks good in both pictures but the new look is HOT !!

I think he looks handsome and sounds great , too. I love the new look.

He looks gorgeous both ways. Spikes are pretty much out of style now, so the new shaggy look is very hip. He seems to like it, too. I think he’s very sexy. If he has to put a bag over his head, I volunteer to be under that bag with him. :-)

Clay looks gorgeous on the outside, but, more importantly he’s a funny, gracious, kind, caring, and wonderful human being — and a Southern gentleman to boot!!

I like the new hair a lot. I think it looks great. It really softens up his face and brings out his green eyes.

I….really…don’t….know…what to think except, “M’kayyyyyyyyyyyyy……..”.

I love the new look. The wide-eyed boy who appeared on American Idol has grown up and quite nicely, too. Besides, what does hair have to do with his voice? The guy can sing which is something that 99% of the pop stars out these days can’t do without Protools assistance. Can’t wait to get that new CD on September 19.

Sorry, but he looks like a girl. YUCK!
