Just on the heels of the news that new dad Clay Aiken is back in town to resume his role in Spamalot! comes this long-overdue, incredibly awesome announcement, courtesy of People magazine. Clay Aiken is finally admitting he's gay! The cover shot is in the great tradition of Ellen DeGeneres and Lance Bass's straightforward "Everybody Already Knew" comings out. On the same day that Lindsay Lohan officially acknowledged her lesbian relationship with Samantha Ronson, no less!

But one must wonder: After years of turning against anyone who said the American Idol runner-up was gay, are the Claymates going to attack Aiken himself now?

Finally! [Perez Hilton]
