HOLLYWOOD - American Idol's latest winner, Lee DeWyze told Ryan Seacrest backstage at the Nokia Theater that he will take some of the $1 million first prize money and buy the paint store that he worked at back in Mount Prospect, Illinois.
Seacrest asked him if he really wanted to do that. DeWyze said that ever since he was three, his dream was to one day own his very own paint shop.
He noted that he has a dog named "Brushy" a hamster named "Acrylic," and a bunny rabbit named "Turpentine."
Lee said that he will be giving the other three shop employees raises, plus he will provide health benefits, two-weeks paid vacations, free parking, and an extended lunch break from ten minutes to one full hour.
American Idol reject Andrew Garcia overheard him and asked if he could fill out an application.
Lee said that he has already been approached about performing duets with Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Cheryl Cole, and Adam Lambert.
Lee said that he likes Lambert but he did admit to the fact that he's allergic to glitter, eye shadow, and fingernail polish.
