Now that Clay is, as he says, picking out his own clothes, he needs to learn what really looks good on him and what REALLY makes him look dorky. The tan suit is a prime example; some fans like it [they'd probably love him in a bathrobe ], but lots of us hate it, even though we're Clayzies. Wiser course: wear stuff that doesn't draw a lot of negatives even from your fans.
And Clay needs to get a lower maintenance hairstyle so he can do it right and not spend hours on it.
Re the music itself, I hope Clay will push the record company NOT to have the background music upstage his gorgeous voice. That's mostly what his fans fell in love with, and we want to hear it. The alleged "studio version" of This Is The Night which has been posted on the net is WAY overproduced and IMO lacks emotional charge in addition to masking Clay's distinctive vocal strengths.
Clay, and RCA, remember it was the way Clay looked and sounded on AI that won our hearts. Please don't change either too much in the CDs and videos.
And, yes, Clay's cute when he does the clown bit, but he also became a heartthrob on AI. Please don't let the management company or Clay forget that.
I do hope both guys can resist the many unhealthy or unsavory temptations that are already being waved before their eyes. And they both need to keep thick skins where the tabloids are concerned.
