Aiken blasts Palin's gay marriage remarks

  • Bristol Palin writes blog entry criticizing President Obama's decision to support gay marriage
  • Aiken tells Showbiz Tonight's A.J. Hammer: 'I hardly think Bristol Palin is the person be a spokesperson for parenting and marriage'

Clay Aiken is ecstatic over President Obama's recent decision to publicly support gay marriage. Showbiz Tonight spoke to the openly-gay singer about comments made by Bristol Palin on her blog criticizing Obama for his gay-marriage bombshell. Plain writes, 'While it's great to listen to your kids' ideas, there's also a time when dads simply need to be dads. In this case, it would've been helpful for him to explain to Malia and Sasha that while her friends parents are no doubt lovely people, that's not a reason to change thousands of years of thinking about marriage.' Aiken doesn't believe Palin will be affected by his marriage to another male and that he should be afforded the same rights as everybody else. The 'Celebrity Apprentice' contestant has a new album, Steadfast, available now.

Tune into Showbiz Tonight on HLN at 11 p.m. ET/PT for more with Aiken on his reaction to Obama's shocking announcement.
