This past Sunday David Cook, last year's American Idol winner turned pop star, addressed on his MySpace site an issue that is an ongoing concern for any pop star thrust into the glaring spotlight. The issue is concern about the lengths that some fans will go to in attempting to gain access. Addressing this fan behavior directly always comes at the risk of alienating those who otherwise adore the performer. Below is a segment of David Cook's comments.
The response to Cook's comments have been mixed from fans. I throw my voice into the matter and believe that his response is not only appropriate, but it is carefully thought out with an attitude of caring for continuing a positive relationship between fan and artist.
