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!"

Danny Gokey: Click to watch
He requested we not air that part. Whoops.

Danny Gokey's 15 minutes are over after the AI summer tour. Dude is Taylor Hicks v2 man, not going anywhere. The guy who produces Daughtry's records even says so. Google it. He will never be an Adam Lambert. He will never be a Kris Allen. He needs to stop dressing exactly like Kris and just move on. I couldn't stand seeing his smug looks all throughout the AI season and glad he LOST. He will be forgotten after the summer tour, at least to the mainstream. He'll go into some christian rock genre where he may possibly have some success, but he's defo not going to be a Clarkson, Daughtry, Lambert or Allen. No way.

Interesting how gokey puts this link on his twitter and then comes back here and posts flattering comments to himself. L-O-S-E-R!!!! There's more to life than fame and fortune, which you're NEVER going to get anyway, so frickin' GROW UP. No one likes a fake-ass bitch, gokey!

So the whole Idol gang can get to feel what it is liked being hounded by paparazzi, and all the editing and the photobabbing the media plays with. It's all illusion, just like a personality's image for someone named Danny has been all along. But the important thing is, where are they staying and does it have a cafeteria in the lobby where I can park?

people need to lighten up, he was joking. Danny has said several times the real reason he's doing all of this. I would never ever want to be famous b/c people pick apart every little thing you say and interpret it wrong. most of what he's been doing since being off idol is raising money for his wife's foundation. and what's wrong with having money? as long is it doesn't control you. everyone who's written something on here wouldn't turn down money if it was given to them.

This is the first time in my life that I
have experienced such cruelty. What amazes me is that all the people who clain to hate Danny, are reading and commenting on these blogs. If it were Adam Lambert, I'm sure you would all be saying how funny it was that he said money ,money, money what a great personality he has. As far a TMZ goes it is another tabloid, looking for a story to make someone look bad. There would be no TMZ, if people didn't enjoy making others look bad. I would also like to know how many of have loved someone who has died, I'm sure you all have. When it was fresh in your minds and other refered to them as your DEAD love one, you would feel so much pain inside. As far a the person who wants his wife to come back so she can murder her and marry Danny need serious help. If I kknew how I would report her to the aurthorities, many people have been stalked and killed by people who sound just like her.

Gokey does not even deserve to go on Idol tour and maybe he should just bow out now that he is ahead with all his controversial remarks and actions! Can't stand him............

I absolutely can't believe how ridiculous people are. Grow up please! The fact that Danny made it as far as he did on American Idol says so much about his level of talent. Thousands upon thousands of people auditioned for Idol and he was - oh my gosh - number 3!! Wow - that sure means he is talentless! Additionally, go back and watch the character Danny shows on every episode of Idol. He didn't glamorize his situation or act conceited in any way, shape or form! And as for his comment - so what! Stop being such haters and find something better to do with your time!! Danny - if you read any of these blogs, which I am surprised I did (actually I've never submitted an entry to a blog but this one was just too upsetting for me) - I wish you the absolute best! You are one of the most talented men I have ever had the opportunity to witness! Actually, I am hoping that you do decide to go into the Christian genre as that is my favorite type of music. I have every song you ever sang on Idol and will follow your career far into the future I'm sure - look for me to be beating down the door to buy your first album! God bless you Danny - you are truly an inspiration!!
