Living in the spotlight isn’t very glamorous. If you needed conformation of that fact, just take a look at country star Keith Urban. A few weeks ago he was released from rehab after only 4 months of marriage to Nicole Kidman. Keith gave his fans a heartfelt video message about his ordeal that was shown on his web site. Moving ever forward, Keith has announced his new concert tour for the
US and Europe.
Keith’s 3 month rehab turned out to be a photographer’s dream come true. Why? I bet you can name that tune in 3 notes-movie star wife.
Nicole has the perfected the use of the photo op and somehow many of those pictures were released to the press-keeping her name and face, Keith’s as well, on the front page of every gossip publication. Public or private moments, it doesn’t seem to matter. Every moment is there for exploiting.
Thanks to Nicole, we (the general public) have had the unique opportunity to view the grounds of the
while Keith was an inpatient. We have had the chance to watch them at a summer carnival. We have even seen the stuffed animal that Keith won for her at a carnival game. We have witnessed Nicole without her make up-playing the role of dutiful wife. We have seen them driving to Nicole’s lavish properties in Betty Ford Center and had the unfortunate opportunity to see Nicole’s mental melt down on the side of the road. Australia
Once out of rehab, we were again treated to a photo of Nicole and Keith at an awards ceremony that is known for free flowing alcohol and out of control behavior. This certainly is where you would expect to see the newly reunited happy couple.
Everyone that knows Keith Urban is aware of his past. He has been very honest and open about his problems and has tried to move beyond them. His personal life had been very private up to the time he began dating Ms. Kidman. Paparazzi didn’t follow his every move and he lived in
as a regular person, continuing to build his musical career. Keith now finds his private life strewn over the pages of any magazine so Nicole can keep feeding her ego. Nashville
Yes, he has a career all of his own and didn’t need her money to begin or revive it. Keith is an extremely talented musician with an extensive musical portfolio.
There was no skirt tale relationship or gravy train here.
Living in the spotlight does allow all of your insecurities to show. One that is flashing in neon now appears to be how much attention Nicole will continue to require to keep feeling relevant. It never ends…
Keith certainly deserves a better life.
