American Idol champ David Cook opens up to Life & Style about fan gifts, kissing for work, and all the great opportunities heâ€™s had.
Here are the highlights of the interview that the 26-year-old shared:
On celebrating the success of his self-titled new album, which has sold more than 1 million copies: â€œItâ€™s been nuts. Iâ€™ve gotten to do some amazing things, like perform for the troops in the Middle East and throw out the first pitch at a Kansas City Royals baseball game.â€
On being amused by some of the gifts he receives from fans, like a cooler filled with ice and QuikTrip Taquitos, his favorite food: “[I tried to ship it to his home in Tulsa, Okla.,] but by the time it got there, it was just a box of moldy food. I got a phone call from my mom asking, â€˜Whatâ€™s wrong with you?â€™”
On filming the video for his single â€œCome Back To Meâ€: “I had a kissing scene. You watch stuff growing up, and I always thought I couldnâ€™t imagine how uncomfortable that would be. Now I know! [Disturbia’s Sarah Roemer] knew what she was doing. I kept apologizing the whole time.”
