American Idol winner Lee DeWyze spills on singing, sleeping, celebrity — and Simon Cowell in this week’s issue of OK!. And as an added online bonus, we’ve added our favorite outtakes!
Last text message you received?
It was from my mom about five minutes ago telling me that she me on TV and she was so proud of me.
Last music you downloaded?
Oasis’ new album. My friend told me to check it out. I’m not a big fan of listening to one song and ignoring the rest. I like the whole thing.
Last expensive thing you bought?
I want to buy a motorized scooter. When we go on tour, I want to be able to hop on that thing and scoot around. I think it would be fun!
Last time you felt starstruck?
When I was singing with Joe Cocker on the stage at the finale. That was insane, especially that song. We were in the room rehearsing and I was like, “Is this really happening right now?”
Last present you gave someone?
We all went to Disney World. I bought little things to give everyone that was there with me as mementos of the whole trip.
Last time you laughed?
Today, while doing some interviews. People ask you funny questions and makes you think, “Where would you ever come up with that?”
Last time you were angry?
I was angry at myself last night for not going to bed earlier. I wanted to go to bed and get some sleep. Then an hour goes by, two hours go by. And then it was too late.
Last time you lied?
Probably the last interview I did. No, just kidding [laughs]. I don’t really lie. Who knew these questions would be so difficult?
Last thing you ate?
I had part of a bagel. Bagel in the morning is the ultimate breakfast for me, they’re just good.
Last time you were recognized?
When I was walking in here [laughs]. Outside, someone just strolled me and said “Lee, American Idol, Hey!” It’s cool!
Last thing you said to Simon Cowell?
Good luck, because he’s doing his new thing. We had a little talk and he said I’m proud of you, you deserve it and good luck. I said, Good luck to you, too.
