UPI News Service, 04/19/2005
"American Idol" star Clay Aiken said his middle school classmates in Raleigh, N.C., would have been rich had they been paid for every time they teased him.
"They started to pick on me because I sang and because I was in musicals," Aiken said during an interview about bullies on the "Dr. Phil" TV show that aired Tuesday. "I was the only guy in choir in my entire high school. So people picked on me for that."
