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?

Love his new look – so hot!!

Davey on

He looks good. Why the big argument about it? What’s wrong with the Kelly Clarkson gang anyways? They descend like locusts and post their nasty hate messages all over. Why? It looks really bad that she has fans like this.

He changed his look (I like it), but the voice is still as great!! The look on his upcoming tv appearances will be different, but very hottt!

Laurie on

love it!! went from young boy to hot MAN!

I love the new look. It’s fresher, hipper and sexier, but it’s also more manageable and versatile. His old hairstle was lovely, but it never looked right unless it was styled, I’ve seen recent photos of him with it unstyled and it still looks nice. I love the darker color on him as well. He has several new photos up at his fanclub and he looks gorgeous.

Love the new look!! The spike do is so OVER!! This look is hip, cool!!

Pat on

I love the hair!! It looks soft and like you could run your fingers through it, unlike the spikes. Sigh. Very, very sexy and hawt!

sherry on

William Jones on

He looks confident and happy. Check out for more photos.

Better yet, check out his sneak peak in streaming audio here:

Don’t make the mistake of judging this album until you’ve heard it. Forget about the hair and the looks, Clay Aiken SOUNDS fantastic.

Nikki on

I think he looks weird.
