Newsweek certainly does, as it tried to get the former American Idol runner-up to comment in a couple of incidents during the recent interview. But Aiken wasn't exactly in the mood to talk about any of it:
How did you get into a fight with that lady on a plane? Iâ€™m not going to talk about it.
I was just curious because youâ€™ve never talked about it. I did talk about it.
What about the Kelly Ripa thing? Iâ€™m not going to discuss it.
Did you think it was homophobic? Iâ€™m not going to discuss it.
What do you want to talk about? I think weâ€™re done.
Can we talk about something fun? No, weâ€™re done. I thought Newsweek would be more reputable. Iâ€™m surprised.
But I think people are curious about it. It was a year ago. This is Newsweek. Itâ€™s not the National Enquirer. Iâ€™d hate to have a job where I had to be rude to people.
Iâ€™ll change the subject. What do you do for fun? I watch the news. I read news magazines, but Iâ€™m reconsidering that now.
