Fame has gotten ugly at times for American Idol champ David Cook, who issued a plea for his privacy while on tour.

"The efforts by some fans to find our hotel rooms, call our hotel rooms, attach things to our bus, etc., is something I have to condemn," he says in his My Space Celebrity blog under the heading "Attention."

Cook, 26, says that while he prides himself on being accessible to fans, "We do enjoy what little privacy we can muster."

"This relationship only works when it remains healthy for both parties," he says, "and should this behavior continue, the only thing we can do is take more preventative measures to maintain our privacy, which in turn makes us less accessible to you."

He concludes: "I hope this doesn't come off as harsh. I merely want to nip this in the bud so we can continue to have a great experience with all of you at the shows we have coming up."
