Well, she should be Keith because going through so many interviews in so little time you really have changed.
A faux interview using actual statements from Mr. Urban:
What are Mr. Kidman's interests?
"Reading, going to movies, watching a little TV" - 6/01 & 1/07
What are your priorities?
"My sobriety, my marriage, my career." - 3/07
"What I want to do first is make music- I want to get out there and play" - 1/07
"I am fortunate I am not married and I don't have kids so I can obviously devote a lot of time to what I do without people telling me I am not taking care of business at home" - 8/04
"I like to balance my career and my off stage life" - 11/02
Is fame important?
"I am going to be a f*cking star" - 09/01
"I want to be the guy in the spotlight" - 11/02
"Celebrity is such a fleeting thing. It's better to keep it on the music. The effect of that is what is important not who you slept with last week" - 8/04
"This record is where I am and a reflection of my life" - 9/06
Who are your fans?
"When women like your music it's a great compliment. We are gearing our appeal toward a female audience" - 9/01
"It isn't just women at the shows there are men and young people. It isn't all about women" - 7/05
America or Australia?
"I am hoping to meet a nice American girl and become a US citizen" - 4/01
"I don't feel comfortable talking about the US" - 11/05
"I believe in the idea of America" - 10/06
"I renounced my record contract with EMI Australia. I didn't want any ties to Australia" - 5/4/05
"I struggle with a lot of the realities of being an immigrant living in America. It's a delicate place to be." - 9/06
"America has been very good to us but the home in my heart is Australia" - 3/07
"I write a lot in the bath and in the shower. I was asked why not keep a cassette in the bathroom but I had a feeling the muse would be really pissed off at taking all the fun out of it for her" - 7/04
"I don't want to divulge what inspires me to write" - 8/05
"The songs all reflect my life and my relationship" - 9/06
"I think it is better to listen to the songs and draw your own conclusions than to have them spoiled by telling what they are about" - 2/07
"I lost my way and my way begins and ends with music" - 8/04
"It just happens that when things start going my way I lose some of my drive. Success is easier." - 5/05

Addiction and sobriety?
"Every tour bus needs a fully stocked bar" - 11/02
"I wouldn't say I was an addict" - 07/05
"It wasn't one event it was a serious of events over time that was making my life unmanageable" - 1/07
Interesting isn't it? Sound bites or are they? Has Mr. Kidman been too open? Did his fans have a desire or were led to believe they own him? Was he spinning tales to sell CD's? You be the judge. I think when Keith Urban is allowed to talk from the brain and the heart he is interesting. When he is saying what he thinks we want to hear or a sound byte fed to him it becomes obvious he isn't. And for all of these statements at least he is articulate; unlike that woman he married who couldn't put together a string of words long enough to hold anyone’s interest. Poor Keith, I know why you were drinking before rehab - you had no one to talk to.
