Corey Clark, the bloke who claims that he'd done some backstage work with Paula Abdul during his time as a contestant on American Idol, isn't happy; during the final the show included a jokey piece claiming that Simon Cowell was having an affair with himself. Clark, of course, rather than having a quiet snicker, has decided to feel that he's been slighted:

"We're reminded once again last night in front of millions of viewers that not only are they not taking it seriously, but they don't feel as though we should take it seriously," Clark's spokesman, Jed Wallace, told AP Radio on Thursday.

"It's simply baffling to me that Fox would actually resurrect this controversy by doing something like that," said Wallace, calling it a "slap in the face."

Hmm. A bloke goes on a karaoke programme, shags an 80s pop star, and then tries to flog the story to anyone who'd listen. Erm... what, exactly, are we meant to be taking seriously here?
