In a two part interview with Diane Sawyer, Clay Aiken reveals his struggle with panic attacks and his use of Paxil.
“I guess I just got to a point where I thought, ‘OK, listen, you’re not going crazy,” he explains. “I’m not going, I’m not going crazy.’ And so I talked to my doctor and I said, ‘Listen, here’s the thing. I don’t understand why I feel like I’m gonna have a heart attack when I go into these rooms. I don’t get it.'”
I get it. Clay Aiken is gay and everybody knows it, but he’s in denial. He’s so gay that even Elton John shakes his head and mutters “queer boy” under his breath. He also forgot to mention that this feeling of a heart attack only seems to come when some guy in the gym bends over and wiggles his ass at him. He’s probably stressing out trying to stop the raging erection that’s about to tear through his pants.
