Clay Aiken Can't Really Think He's a Better Singer Than Rihanna, Can He? (VIDEO)

Say What!? 42

clay aikenUm, wow. Clay Aiken? That's all I have to say about you, my friend. Um ... WOW. Did the former American Idol -- oh, I'm sorry, I meant to say the former American Idol runner-up -- actually think it was his place to criticize Rihanna ... for her voice, of all things? Not her choice in men, not her sometimes questionable fashion sense ... but her voice?!

Girl can sing CIRCLES around Clay Aiken! And still, he had the nerve to include Rihanna in his list when asked in an interview which current stars wouldn't make the cut on Idol.

Seriously, here's what the Botox-happy -- oh, I'm sorry, I meant to say Corrective Surgery for TMJ-happy -- celeb said:

"Um ... Rihanna has some pitch problems for sure. She does...Now I'm gonna get in trouble, too."

Um ... yeah. Yeah, you are gonna get in trouble, Clay Aiken. Unless you can plead temporary insanity for calling out a singer who's a bazillion times more talented than you could ever hope to be.

Poorly played, Aiken. Poorly played. Although hey, it's not like Rihanna has a gigantic fan base that didn't like you in the first place and now probably HATE you for what you said.

So it could be worse! (I'm lying.)

I think maybe that non-Botox must have gone straight to Aiken's head.

Can you believe Clay Aiken had the audacity to insult Rihanna?

american idol, music

I do like some of Rihanna's songs, and Clay Aiken's audience is mostly 50 year old American Idol fans...but, let's not kid ourselves. Rihanna isn't as good of a singer as he is. She's very autotuned, and doesn't have much of a range.

I like Rihanna but she honestly IMO can't sing that good. Her voice hardly ever sound good when she sings live

Rihanna's voice isn't that great - her songs are just produced well. I'm on Team Clay . . .

Author, get over yourself! You have 4 comments going against you right now. LOL. Clay has a much better conditioned (if even needed) and more natural voice than Rihanna and he doesn't even need a microphone or a studio. He has natural talent.

The question in its self was a set up. No matter which star he said someone would get pissed. Plus everyone has a different opinion and taste when it comes to music that's why there is so many different types.

Well, I think Clay is indeed a much better singer than Rhianna and he knows it. It's true she wouldn't pass the first round of American Idol. Most Idol contestants who at least get to the final 10 have great voices, and Clay's voice is exceptional, nobody can deny it. Rhianna is autotuned, I agree her music sells because of the beat and she is also pretty and controversial, but her voice is mediocre. Clay is not a top 40 artist, his voice is too good for the kind of music we currently hear on the radio with a few exceptions. I think Lady Gaga is great, but not many others.

I love Rhianna, but she cannot sing. Her voice is terrible. Aiken has true talent vocally. Look up a live song from both and you'll see what I mean. I can't believe there are people out there who think she can actually sing...

I'm no Clay Aiken fan, but I DESPISE Rhianna and her monotone, autotuned BS. If she wasn't half naked in most of her videos/photo shoots/public appearances, people might actually pay attention to her "music" and notice that it's freakin' awful. I wish she'd just go away.

Have you ever heard Rhianna sing live? She is not a good singer.

Rhianna, like Madonna, Janet Jackson, Brittney all have terrible voices, but are great performers.

I am sorry author, but Clay can sing circles around Rhianna.
