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 absolutely like the new look. He’s a grown man of 28…time for the spikey do to go…..It’s very becoming.

I love Clay Aiken’s new look. Whenever an artist comes out with a new CD they always re-invent themselves in some way. The longer hair is a definite PLUS! And you people with all the “gay” talk…shame on you…just remember that there are people that “assume” things about you too..

I think he looked good before. What is he thinking?

I think Clay Aiken looks really hip and trendy with his new hairdo. That is a very popular style and I see a lot of other male celebs sporting it ie. Jim Carrey. I think the spiky hair suited Clay in the beginning but he has matured so nicely and now this is a great style for him. Of course, I wouldn’t hold my breath cause he will probably change it again in the near future.

The women love Clay and he loves them right back.

I think he looks hot!

He looks good. A more adult image for the new album. That is pretty common. He had looked like he was stuck in a time warp and he’s not the 23-year-old who tried out for a reality show anymore. He looks like many men his age.

I think Clay looks Hot either way… but I like his new hip shag do!
