Danny Gokey Love$$$ 'American Idol'

6/12/2009 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Believe it or not, the best part of "American Idol" actually isn't having 12-year-old girls screaming your name, because according to Danny Gokey, it's all about the "MONEY, MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. MONNNNNNEY!"

He requested we not air that part. Whoops.

There are so many of these 'idol' characters that we may as well start calling them regulars.

Many of these 'idol-ettes' are called, very few establish and maintain substantial careers in the industry. Relegate him to the "Who?" file.

Danny doesn't want it aired, because American Idol and 19 have to pay royalities on any songs that the Idols sing.... that includes when they walk down the street. If it's taped and shown, AI has to fork over money to the artists that wrote and recorded that song. Busted Danny.... but it wasn't only for being shallow, but because he's gonna get slapped on the wrist for breaking the rules.

The money?! They only got a small per diem. To help them buy some clothing. From what I heard Gokie spent most of it on glasses! As he said he had about 12 when he started AI. Then he had about 60 when Idol ended. He's like a woman with shoes! Besides, Gokie! It still doesn't help your fug face and you crappy voice! Are you still pimping your dead wife like when you were on Idol? Are you sad that you have yet to get a recording contract while many others from this past season of Idol has? It's called Karma Gokie. For the way you treated all the other idol cast offs by being smug and acting like your the best. Especially when Allison was voted off.

UGGGGHHH    

DANNY HAS A GREAT VOICE. I PERSONALLY THINK HE WAS THE BEST OUT OF ALL OF THEM AND SHOULD OF WON. HE HAS A BETTER VOICE THAN KRIS ALLEN AND ADAM LAMBERT WHO DOES NOTHING BUT SCREAMS HIS SONGS. ADAMS SUX.

"They only got a small per diem. To help them buy some clothing." You're kidding, right. these kids are paid standard reality show rates...which is somewhere around $750 per show PLUS a clothing allowance. And the tour that they are working this summer? They each get approximately $110,000.
