David Cook: Love Is in the Hair

David Cook is going out of his way to not discuss girlfriend Kimberly Caldwell lately, but for an idea of how serious they are, look no further than his head of hair. The Idol champ is featuring a new hair style after switching to Caldwell’s regular stylist. Caldwell even oversaw the most recent Cook haircutting adventure at the Luxelab in Santa Monica last week. “Kimberly was giving him pointers,” says a source. According to the source, Caldwell sat in the salon chair next to Cook’s, consulting with the stylist and David. “She was very hands on, very involved,” the source says. When not on hair patrol, the pair were affectionate to each other the entire time they were there. “They were pretty lovely-dovey, always touching,” says the source. “Kimberly was picking pieces of stray hair off of his face, and shoulders.” Under Caldwell’s guidance, Cook received a cut and color that was “edgier, darker, and more up to date.” The final result brought a squeal of delight from Caldwell, with the insider saying, “She seemed to be quite happy with the new look.” — Reagan Alexander

Come on everyone give David Cook a break already! This is all new to David Cook and that’s why Cookie’s fans are totally 100% supporting him.

If this story is true, then David has a lot to learn in life. I thought he was smarter than that. From what I have read, she is a gold digger and if she is trying to control him and not let him be himself like the person we fell in love with on AI then Davids fame will be short lived. We want to see David not Kimberly Caldwell. She is starting to make some people (including me) sick….

I’m not so sure on this story to begin with

Unlike a lot of people, I don’t care if he’s with her because if he makes her happy, why the heck not? But I do hope that she’s not going to end up being that person who hooks up with someone because she likes him and then turns around and tries to change everything about him.

I don’t think this should be the focal point of his career! I think it should be about his music not his looks or personal life. I love him for the amazing person he is and the amazing artist he is!

Can’t stand the guy and I don’t think he should have won American Idol.

Does anyone remember a comment that david said a while ago that he (Has trouble convincing a pretty girl why she should be with him) I think this all has to do with that comment! He will change for her, but not premently! When its over he’ll go back to the guy he was! And sooner or later it will be over! I seriously don’t think he realize that there are a whole lot of women out there who really appreciate him for more than the hair and the fact that he’s the “American Idol”! Knowing how hard it is to find a great guy, his talent aside if he’s half the guy he protrays himself to be I’d be crazy about him! He seems to have a hard time believing women really feel that way! But they do! This however is not the kind of guy kim wants and we all know that! Someday he will and it won’t last!!!

It should be about his music but if you’ve heard her music, you’d understand why her being an influence on him is not good! Her voice while not terrible is lifeless and flat! Go to her website and listen!! Changing him changes everything about him! If her influence is on the album then it going to lose some of what we love about analog heart! Plus he should be living that album right now, there will be plenty of time for girls later! He himself said not that long ago that was all he’d have time for, for the next couple years!

Hmm..David Cook is so awesome and talented..I have been rooting for him since the start. I happen to think his hair looks great just how it is. I am not particularly attracted to mr.Cook or dream of him daily but I would have liked to see him hook up with someone a little less blonde and cookie cutter type, she looks or acts no different than any of the other 100 bleach blonde wannabees out there but oh well, maybe he sees something in her that we don’t. If he is happy then let him be happy for the time being though I have a feeling this wont last..he might just be all caught up in the hollywood glitz thing right now.

This is nothing compare to him degrating himself by singing 80’s music for her and her friends to dance to at that private club in LA! The boys’ losing it! Lets blame it on too much work combined with lack of sleep! I just wish it was charities using him and not her! At least then something good would get accomplished!
