'DWTS' Has Stripped Me Of My Privacy

Cody Simpson has lost his right of privacy while doing "Dancing With the Stars."  He cannot remove his mic while he's on the phone, while he's talking business, while he reveals his most inner thoughts.   The only exception -- taking a dump.

The contract Cody signed makes the NSA look like child's play.  We got a copy because Cody's only 17 and the doc has to be filed with the court.

Cody agrees to wear a mic during rehearsal's and training, with only a bathroom break out.

The Australian singer gets a guaranteed $125K ... which goes up the longer he stays on the show.  It caps out at $50K per week if he's in the finals.

And, "DWTS" cleverly figured out a way to block Jimmy Fallon from hijacking ABC stars.  Cody specifically agreed to appear on "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Good Morning America," and "The View."

Here's how onerous the deal is ... "DWTS" has final cut on Cody's hairstyle.
