Aren't the English supposed to know better?

I haven't been following Idol this season, but this morning on the news I heard a clip of Simon Cowell saying, "I think you have a very good tactic at the moment: Wear as least amount of clothes as possible."

Wear as least amount of clothes as possible???

Simon! Were you sneaking some of Paula's rum and Coke? Wear as little clothing as possible. Wear the least amount of clothing possible. Wear the least clothes possible, I suppose, though it's clunky.

Just because you're calling someone a talentless whore doesn't mean your grammar should suffer!
