    Short of Cash? Pay with Clay!

    April 25, 2005 -- TIME was, they named a sandwich or a turnpike rest stop after you when you got famous.

    Sign of the new times? "American Idol" heart-throb Clay Aiken is getting a credit card named after him.

    Actually, it's a debit card, aimed at young people who can't get — or can't yet be trusted with — a credit card.

    The card was issued last week by an affiliate of Mastercard called MYplash — an apparent acronym for "my plastic cash."

    "The difference between MYplash and a normal bankcard is that MYplash has your son's/daughter's favorite recording artist on it," according to the company's Web site yesterday.

    Fan sites were filled with news of the new card over the weekend.

    Aiken, runner-up in the second edition of "Idol," went on to become the show's biggest-selling singer with his debut album in 2003.

    His positive image and bubble-gum-sweet songs created a huge group of Aiken fans — called "Claymates" by MTV — who travel all over country to attend his concerts.

    He appeared earlier this month on the "Dr. Phil" show to reveal how he'd been badly bullied as a high school student and how he learned to overcome it.

    Clay is set to begin recording a new album next month and start a summer tour shortly after.

    Highlights Songs From All Five Decades of the Rock Era
    RCA Artist Will Also Preview Songs From His Next Album on 25-City Tour That Begins July 28, 2005 in Tom's River, NJ
    Fans Can Send Text Messages to Clay Backstage Before Each Show

    LOS ANGELES, July 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Clay Aiken will rock the jukebox ... [with a] tour celebrating all five decades of the rock era ... .

    The multi-platinum RCA Records recording artist will embark on the fifth tour of his career with something new. ... Aiken's latest live show will reach back to the '50s and '60s for the earliest hits of rock and roll, move into the '70s and '80s for songs from Aiken's childhood, and come all the way into the '90s and '00s for hits from modern times.

    "I thought it would be cool to sing a bunch of covers, and relate to everybody," says Aiken. ...

    The tour will include ... "Bridge Over Troubled Water" and ... "Solitaire." Aiken's versions of both songs charted in Billboard. There will also be a medley of Elvis Presley songs that spans the decades. Aiken will also sing the hits of everyone from Sam Cooke to Goo Goo Dolls.

    This summer ... those attending Clay's concerts will be encouraged to bring their cell phones and text messaging devices to participate in extracurricular show activities ... . Those attending will be able to send text messages to Clay backstage before each show and register to receive a post-show message from him. At many venues, attendees will be able to post their own text messages live, on screens in the venue. They will also have access to exclusive merchandise.

    "This started out as a show just to have some fun with, and as I got more excited about singing these songs, it became a bigger show," explains Aiken. "... the production will be simple because the real story is the music. It's a chance for people to remember where they were when they heard certain songs. ... We're going to have a lot of medleys in the show, including a doo-wop medley and one for all the great Motown hits. I [expect] ... everyone will be able to sing along to at least five songs, no matter when they grew up!"

    The '00s section will include songs from Aiken's first album, the double-platinum "Measure of a Man," and will preview songs from his upcoming CD. Aiken is about to go into the studio to begin recording the new album.

    Clay will perform three songs on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America" on July 29 as part of their outdoor Summer Concerts series
    ... singing from Bryant Park.

    In connection with his "Good Morning America" appearance and the launch of his summer tour, Clay will be on the cover of the July 24 issue of TV Guide.

    From Radar Magazine:

    We hear the relationship on everyone’s lips was the one between Kill Reality’s only gay star, Reichen Lehmkuhl of The Amazing Race 4, and American Idol’s Clay Aiken. While Aiken never appeared at the house, we hear Lehmkuhl was constantly taking calls from the pixie-like singer.
    “Reichen swears there’s nothing going on,” says our source. “But Clay kept calling non-stop. It was all very weird.”
