Which Idol Judge Wants a $150K Clothing Budget?


You’d think Simon Cowell – and you’d be wrong.

Actually, funny gal Ellen DeGeneres is the one making herself right at home at the Idol stage and has started making outrageous demands. Sources on American Idol suggest that Ellen has insisted that she get a $150,00 clothing allowance for custom-made clothing while she is on the show.

But will the Idol bosses foot that bill?

The sources says she won’t be taking no for an answer: ├óΓé¼┼ôEllen feels it├óΓé¼Γäós only fair because Paula received a hefty allowance for hair, makeup and wardrobe.”

Yes, but Paula wore more than just a pant suit every week. Not to belittle your style, girl, but this seems a little extreme!
