David Cook on the Red Carpet – Scream 4 Premiere

Fox 11 News report – Talks about Pia’s dismissal. Reporter says David will perform his new single on Idol next week.

Posing on the Red Carpet

  • SashaB

    Awesome. Love the photos. Love that he’s going to be on Idol next week.

    Thanks MJ.

  • sma11ie

    Those red carpet videos with photogs screaming at the celebs always stress me out. I clicked on David’s and Pete Wentz’s and they both looked sooo uncomfortable. I lol’ed when both refused to do the rawk hands when that one photog shouted at them about rock and roll poses. David did a dorky thumbs up thing and Pete made a funny face. I like rock stars that refuse rawk hands and do dorky things instead. Heh. YMMV.

    I dig the glasses, but the hilariously cartoonish hair and beard need a trim. Hope he does it before Idol next week. Speaking of, yay, David on Idol next Thursday!!

  • Incipit

    Yay, David on Idol next Thursday!!

    ((Yeah)) for confirmation #FromtheSource of the appearance on Idol next week – even though we ‘knew’ – now we ‘know’.

    A distinct irony that the FOX11 voiceover says ‘we learn David is afraid of heights’, when the setting of the Runway Mag photo shoot is considered. He is perched on a fire escape ladder and posing on a rooftop, after all. But David mentioned that once before, years ago, about another photo shoot.

    That would be the ‘David on an overpass’ shot that was considered for the cover of AH2; the man is willing to face things head on…like “Oh Dear God” and an Adele cover, kinda sorta.

    Just a thought.

  • pattycake

    I can see this becoming a conversation about the hair. It is too tall! Time for a trim and while at it, get the beard trimmed up for next week’s appearance. Hooray, Cookie on my TV!

  • larc

    Somebody should tell Cookie it’s far too early to get dressed up for Halloween. ;)

  • http://emuisemo.pbworks.com eilonwy

    Red carpet appearance at a tongue-in-cheek slasher film? That’s too effing perfect.

    Unspecified prizes will go to the first fan who can successfully engage Cook in a discussion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer trivia and prove that it happened. (Aw, come on… everybody his age has seen Buffy!)

  • Incipit

    I can see this becoming a conversation about the hair

    Oh mercy, pattycake, that’s maybe true – and I’m jaded enough to believe it, while hopeful enough to check back in hope that Scotty doesn’t have to “beam me up”…for the usual reasons. *snerk*

  • unidentified

    All those flashbulbs going off, and the David, David, David, over & over again. I don’t even know how I would be able to stand all that. Got to do stuff like this though. Yay, new song on Idol this week!

  • tinawina

    LOL. He looks like a music teacher. I feel like he’s about to give me a test on scales.

    If DC came out of his house for one of these things, you know what that means! It must be promo time. :D The record is near!

  • just sayin

    Aaack! I usually think David Cook is soooooo cute. This look – not my favorite. Love him though and can’t wait for some new music.

  • cheese

    The hair is a miracle. I never thought David would have “too much hair” but there it is. The beard? A beard is a beard – hasn’t he had a beard pretty much since Top 9 week on Idol?

    Hmm, I wonder who David brought as his date? Monty or Andrew, haha. Dude needs a girlfriend to take him shopping and to tell him not to wear the same pants in public 3 times in one week.

    I’m thinking we’ll get the press release about the single and album after Idol on Thursday, maybe at the same time we get the Idol press release about next week’s theme and results show? I hope the single streams somewhere before it’s available for download. Lead singles don’t usually just drop out of thin air on to iTunes do they?

  • Keel

    If DC came out of his house for one of these things, you know what that means! It must be promo time.

    I know, right? He’s outside and everything. This must be for something important for him to actually wander somewhere where cameras are present. Heh.

    Actually, I recall that David Arquette was spotted at one of David’s concerts and eventually ended up directing the video for one of Cook’s openers and good buddies (Crash Kings), so I get the feeling that they must be at least acquaintances.

    Oh! Almost forgot to comment on the hair. (Because what kind of Cook thread would this be otherwise? Honestly! ;) ) I like the glasses but I agree with smallie. [entitled fan] Please trim the hair and beard for the TV lookie box next week, Cookie! [/entitled fan]

  • supermart

    Every time I see him photographed, I swear he has a new tattoo on his arm. Haha

    This is the first time I’ve noticed Banksy’s “Balloon Girl” doing her thing right next to his watch. Wonder when she first showed up?

  • Incipit

    Lead singles don’t usually just drop out of thin air on to iTunes like that, do they?

    No they don’t, Cheese. The usual suspects are being watched for news about streaming to surface. Soon, one hopes.

    Andrew went with David – he had a scary tweet about his tee shirt, but there are no pictures (yet) so I am suspending belief. I think they both snark at gory movies and that’s how David was convinced to do this Red Carpet. *snerk* (I know, it’s part of the gig.)

    I just recalled an answer in Runway about the last clothing purchased (odd question) and David said two pair of jeans from Forgotten Saints – I think he may have learned a wardrobe tip from the Idol Tour. Buy two identical pairs, like the set of Pirate Pants – and these are neat, with the Gaucho-like snaps on the pants legs.

    Anyway, jeans don’t come in a three-pack – *wink*

  • sma11ie

    The hair is a miracle. I never thought David would have “too much hair” but there it is.

    LMAO… that’s all. No comment, just ROTFLMAO…

    The beard? A beard is a beard – hasn’t he had a beard pretty much since Top 9 week on Idol?

    No, it’s a lot more beardy now ;). A trim would be nice. He trimmed it for the Runway shoot. I like the scruff, not the full beard [yet another entitled fan].

  • Keel

    Andrew went with David – he had a scary tweet about his tee shirt, but there are no pictures (yet) so I am suspending belief.

    Oh, believe it! It was a shirt that said Whoa but the W had nipples . . . Uh-huh. Which is why I will never complain about Cook’s wardrobe, like, ever again.

    ETA: Unless Cook borrows said shirt or something equally wrong.

  • sma11ie

    It was a shirt that said Whoa but the W had nipples . . .

    How do y’all know this?

  • dy77

    Aw, like I said in last night’s thread, I think he looks fine.

  • Incipit

    this is the first time I’ve noticed Banksy’s “Balloon Girl” doing her thing right next to his watch. Wonder when she first showed up?

    Supermart, the Banksy tat and the Dublin pawprint both showed up early last November at the Chris Evert Tennis Classic. People asked about them in the autograph line.

    ETA: Smallie – Andrew tweeted about it. I didn’t look for a pic. *snerk*

  • HappyDaisy

    The beaded bracelet, tattoos, the glasses — some hints of a Johnny Depp type of look coming through. Not too bad. :)

    Excited for David’s AI appearance!

  • wjmtv

    Whoa. Neve Campbell is still alive? Who knew?

    Love the glasses, Cookster.

  • Keel

    smallie, Andrew tweeted a pic. I was stupid enough to click on said link. *shudder*

    In other news, have we had enough of the Adele cover yet? No? Okay then. Here’s a link to the Las Vegas radio station’s video/audio of Cook’s performance of RITD, which they refer to as:

    Hands down the most talked about moment from last weekend’s Mix 94.1 Pet-A-Palooza

    http://mix941fm.radio.com/2011/04/12/david-cook-covers-rolling-in-the-deep/#ixzz1JKOUNlco

  • Incipit

    Addendum – I am really wishing and hoping for streaming news this week, Cheese.

    Someone elsewhere pointed out that the new single, “The Last Goodbye” is said by Tedder to be emotional and uptempo – his words:
    “It’s really emotional and it hits you with the chorus about 40 seconds into the song, so it’s just immediate.”

    And the observation was made that David and Neal picked covers for the DCTR Tour that blended w/the album tracks. Umm – so, this time out they picked “Rolling in the Deep”, which is emotional and uptempo.

    And the anticipation is now at Killer Levels for the new song, figuratively speaking.

    Which is a lead in to say – this surfaced today – a link for “Rolling in the Deep” from the soundboard at Pet-a-Palooza on Saturday.

    I hope David plays it at the Concert for Hope on the 29th too.

  • standtotheright

    Whoa. Neve Campbell is still alive? Who knew?

    I was kinda bummed that EW didn’t do a Party of Five shoot for their reunions issue last fall and I wasn’t even that big a fan of the show.

    I guess she’s been keeping herself busy, though.

    I’m thinking we’ll get the press release about the single and album after Idol on Thursday, maybe at the same time we get the Idol press release about next week’s theme and results show?

    If he was confirming the single on TV, it’s not like they aren’t prepared to announce the appearance outside of the press releases for AI, so I’d guess Thursday (one more day in the press cycle before the weekend) is more likely. But I’ve thought any number of days were more likely than the last two days of this week, so who knows.

  • Eileen99

    Ha, I think David looks adorable in those glasses, and I think his hair is fine. (trust me, you don’t know bad hair). I agree he looks like a music teacher! Cute!

  • Curlin

    Even the Fox anchors discussed Cook’s glasses! LOL I think he looks good but the hair does need a trim. Looking forward to seeing him on AI next week!

  • sunchick

    Next week? Did they say NEXT WEEK?

    Is it next week yet?

    Damn. *wishes for frozen donkey wheel, or a TARDIS, or a buddy who happens to be a badass angel and can make time traveling possible….*

    LOL, I was totally gonna say the same thing when I read the comment re: Neve Campbell. Maybe EW will do a Po5 shoot for the next reunion issue, now that Neve has resurfaced, Bailey (Scott something?) popped up on V, and Foxy isn’t stranded in Hawaii. NGL, Po5 was my guilty pleasure once upon a time.

    More true confessions:

    – Scream 2 scared the living shit outta me. I have always found empty movie theater and/or mall bathrooms to be super creepy, and then that scene in the bathroom happened and I can’t even. Rule #4: Always, ALWAYS go to the bathroom way before the movie starts or you may end up murdered by the serial killer hiding in the stall next to you. Also, don’t sit within a 15 foot radius of a masked man in a darkened movie theater. Jes saying.

    -I kinda flove the massive height of the full on Anime!Cook thing that happens right before he trims his hair. Especially with the speccies. Cuz then I half expect him to play a cartoon guitar that doubles as a laser gun or something.

  • standtotheright

    Cuz then I half expect him to play a cartoon guitar that doubles as a laser gun or something.

    Admit it. You just want the boy in a Killjoy mask.

  • sunchick

    Naaah standtotheright. Killjoys are Killjoys. But I do think the Anthemic should temporarily change their name to the Ninja Vikings for this album cycle. Neal would already be in character.

  • leome

    and then that scene in the bathroom happened and I can’t even

    I never forgot that scene but because of the way they kill him. My ear against a wall? Never! That and passing near white vans. lol

    I love the pictures. He looks nice as always.

  • standtotheright

    sunchick, if that means that Dublin gets a wee Viking helmet (he’s already dressed in ninja black), I’m on board.

  • Keel

    -I kinda flove the massive height of the full on Anime!Cook thing that happens right before he trims his hair. Especially with the speccies.

    I initially thought you said Species, and I was thinking: Yo, different skeery movie and Natasha Hensridge is too tall to be able to hide in that hair.

    My personal theory is that the massive height of Anime!Cook Hair as well as teh massive size of the Dork Glasses are meant to take your attention away from the massiveness of the Alien Skull . . . or rather make it less alien-sized in proportion to the tinyness of the cute little nose and scrunchy eyes. Now if he could only contort himself and always pose his head next to his clown feet, we would have no problems with the proportions. #iluvsuCook #isnarkbecauseilove

  • IndyMuse

    Here’s a link for both a news item and an interesting article. The news is about a possible private Cook radio station show (way down the page), and the article above it is questioning if maybe the voters for AI are right and the producers are wrong. It sounds like someone has been reading here or at least agrees (higher up the page).

    You mean kinda like this? Hee. “Throw me at the crowd, Neal…I want to body, err, head surf.”

    ETA: That radio station RITD is fab. Wow.

  • pattycake

    Hmm, I wonder who David brought as his date? Monty or Andrew, haha. Dude needs a girlfriend to take him shopping and to tell him not to wear the same pants in public 3 times in one week.

    He brought Andrew. He could be a baby daddy of six, we would never know, the wall of silence is still in tact.
    That is a different outfit then the one he worn for 2 days in Vegas.

  • tierbee

    If DC came out of his house for one of these things, you know what that means! It must be promo time.

    Haha, that’s what I was thinking.

    I kinda really love his nerd glasses :) And I’m laughing that someone derisively called “baldy” has… too much hair. It is a bit tall… in an adorable way. It’s like Cookie Neutron… on steroids?

    Cook on Idol, Cook concert, Race for Hope, new music… big ginormous YAY! Like ginormous-er than his FEET yay. Is that a YAY or what?

    (BTW, his continued embracing of the forehead makes this big-forehead-family-member gal glad. And I have lots of Irish in me but I didn’t get that skin. Boo hoo.)

  • unidentified

    Thanks Incipit for the link to “rolling In The Deep” from the radio station’s soundboard. Sounds so good, plus you can hear the guys doing harmony I didn’t hear on the Youtubes.

  • IndyMuse

    Totally spazzing here! Ooooohhhhh, the Pet-a-palooza photographer (official) just dropped this link on the DCO concert thread for photos. Haven’t even looked at them:

    http://alexmophotography.zenfolio.com/davidcook

  • TreeFrog

    The hair is verging on Lyle Lovett-ish or Don King-y, but the glasses are right in style if one can believe the bespectacled trio of Dolce & Gabbana and The Bieber.

  • tierbee

    IndyMuse, there are some awesome pics in that set! I was just admiring them myself :)

  • IndyMuse

    BTW, there are some very, very nice pics in there from the official photographer. A few B&W, a few of band members, some awesome David shots.

  • SharB

    wow he’s sounding soooooooo goooddddddd. can’t wait until next week to see my guy on the tv. hurry up and get here.

    don’t know if I like the tall hair & glasses either. I think I’m with the group to trim both. He’s hot either way but with the hair and trimmer beard, he’ll be smokin’ hot!!!!!!!!!

  • unidentified

    I was looking at the pictures, and thought this can’t be a David Cook concert. There’s mens heads all in the crowd. ha

    I really like the meet & greet photo’s. There’s like families with their kids and dogs. Looks like fun.

  • pattycake

    Wow, thanks Incipit for the link: http://mix941fm.radio.com/2011/04/12/david-cook-covers-rolling-in-the-deep/#ixzz1JKOUNlco
    That is excellent quality video/audio. From the youtubes, I preferred Drive but now I am not so sure. Back to ponder my fav.

  • sr4mjc

    I like high hair! But no to the glasses, yes to the jeans and no to the beard, trim it up!

    And I still like Drive better than RITD ;)

  • sma11ie

    Anyone still here? Can someone post a DL of the RITD MP3 from the radio station vid? Oh, and if there’s a video DL that’d be great too =P. THANKS in advance!

  • blissful

    Smallie –I finally found the mp3 on the concert thread at DC official.

    Not sure if links are allowed, but here it is:

    http://www.4shared.com/audio/rJGguF0S/David_Cook_-_Rolling_in_the_De.html

    I love Adele, but this cover is fabulous — love the male harmonies.

    Mj, you can delete this if needed.

  • Incipit

    Smallie, I was gonna tell you the audio is on the first page of this very thread – and the link to the vid as well is in pattycake’s post above, but blissful took care of you – so it’s all good. *wink*

  • GreenHippo

    I am so in favor if the tall hair lately. I love it. I didn’t used to but Adam Lambert spoiled me on that, now I really really like it. The beard…hm no so much – :lol:

  • Curlin

    blissful, thanks so much! The radio station video has the best audio for sure and I’m lovin’ the harmonies! Also, I’m technically challenged so I can’t rip my own mp3s LOL!

  • Inconnu

    Looking forward to hear David next week. I love him. I think he’s the best male winner idol….

    Don’t love the look though.

  • lovegoodmusic

    David Cook looks very good and I love the glasses on him. It’s a nice change of pace.

  • jlc

    David “Buddy Holly” Cook—still the best Idol ever! Love ya Davie!
