Mr. Nicole Kidman - My Mum is My Publicist

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


Your inspiration?

"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


The Future?

"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

"Its what I do I play music and I love to do it" - 3/07

"I was saved by her love" - 9/01

"I think I have been blessed and God has looked out for me and saved me from myself" - 11/04

"She has saved me I wouldn't be here without her" - 3/07


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.

I thought we have already stated that he double-talks. Not much of a distraction!

In all honesty and to state my opinion in the hopes I won't be chastised because it may differ from the writer's opinion I think it's not always fair to take someone's quotes as certain. People change, life changes and in Keith's case, his fame changed. He's not catering to just an all female audience anymore, you know..the only ones who bought his CD's and went to his shows. Back then there was a desperation to be a success - I don't think this is the case anymore. He's gotten older and things that were important to him 1,5 years...10 years ago are no longer important.
And to be honest, who knows when he answered all those questions over the years...if he was even sober? I think most of the time he probably wasn't and now he's trying to be. He still has a lot of growing up to do and I would think he's still trying to find out who he is outside the music arena so taking those quotes from the past really aren't realistic.

No one ever said Keith wasn't contradictory. He's learning from a master. But I don't recall ever seeing this line...

""I renounced my record contract with EMI Australia. I didn't want any ties to Australia" - 5/4/05"

Please show me where he says that? You must know since you seem to have the entire encyclopedia of Keith Urban at your finger tips.

I would tend to agree that Keith does contradict himself. But I also think that people change ... their opinions change ... their priorities change. Obviously that has happened here. He appears to be headed in an entirely different direction than he was in the past, with his interest in / ambition for his career apparently far from a priority. It's his decision and as long as he's prepared to deal with the consequences, who are we to question that? One just wonders if in a couple of years, when the marriage is either over or the bloom is "off the rose"...he may miss his own personal success and regret not giving his career the attention has has in the past? I guess we can only hope that isn't the case.

I am totally at a loss with this type of comment. Of course everyone is entitled to an opinion, but if you think it's so lame, why comment? I think it's because you are trying to distract people and possibly trying to convince them not to believe what is written in the blogs. If they're so lame, why are you so fearful that someone may read it and believe it???

Anonymous said...

I'm sure every comment that is in the blog is true and you have published interviews to back them up. I could care less how many people read this blog and I have never tried to influence anyone to change their opinions. You are doing that all by yourself. People that may have supported you in the past are starting to questions your motives. What are your motives for these blogs?

Anonymous said...

Why must you think there has to be a specific motive for people to voice their opinions? Just because they are not all happy and supportive? And why in the world should it matter so much to you?

Anonymous said...

I don't know the author of this blog, but the impression I get when reading it & the other blogs is that people just want the "truth" whatever that is ... OUT. There has been so much propaganda in the media and the "official" boards are so crammed with happy joyful stories ... and yet what we see is not happy and joyful. I think it's just to provoke some free thinking about the relationship and how it's impacting Keith's career.

Some of the bloggers (likely all) are or at least were big Keith fans. Speaking for myself only, I am concerned about the impact this relationship has had & is having on Keith & his career and would like to understand why he seems so disinterested in his music (his passion) now. It just doesn't add up based on what the man has been saying all these years.

To quote Dr. Phil, "If you're not getting anything out it, then you wouldn't be doing it." The skeptics are trying to achieve something other then just voicing their opinions but won't share what their ultimate goal is.

The ultimate goal, in my opinion, is the truth. The relationship started as a farce, so it's difficult to know where the lies ended and the truth began, if at all. The relationship has been driven by PR from the beginning and seems to be nothing more than that now. Real couples don't have to try so hard to prove they're in love.

I believe that so much of waht Keith has said in the past was what the "image" was suppose to say. Now I think we are getting more of the real Keith. I also still believe that Keith is not sure who the real Keith is. He has been playing roles for so long for the people of Australia, then the US, now Europe and soon again Australia..then back to the US and then again to Europe...I am sure HE will be very confused by December.

"Watching and reading interviews that either Keith and Nicole have done is one thing, but looking for the truth in tabloids is another!"

I think sometimes the Extreme Skeptics are so determined to break Keith up from his wife, they tend to believe every bad thing that's written. I was one of those who was tired of hearing the same old crap about Nicole in the last blog, but I'm glad the writer is changing gears and keeping it about Keith. There's no doubt he's changed his mind, but I have to agree with the posters who said that people's view's change as they grow older or achieve fame - heck, my point of view changes on this blog daily. It's just life.

Sure people change with life's events and in their professional goals, However, the Keith Urban who was once honest to a fault, happy and proud to proclaim his music, life and love for IT were his focus, now is a walking contradiction of WHOM HE IS.

Words can be said and re-canted or deemed to be irrelevant to the point of his life and career today, but ACTIONS will always speak louder and the eyes are the windows to the soul.

If you look at his, you will see the shine and light has gone away. He struggles to tell his audiences what they want to hear.

Keith Kidman is not the same man as Keith Urban was and the focus of his life "the MUSIC" which he chided his public to stay on course with, is now the last priority for him. This once private man now cannot stop talking about his loyalty to his wife and making sure is the focus of every question he answers.

Draw you own conclusions,but as a friend and fan, I believe he is trying to hard to convince himself he has found his way in his life.

Image is one thing careers are built upon, but the person behind that image is a real human being.
Question is: Will the Real Keith Urban ever find peace of mind? For his sake and that of his family and fans...I hope he does.

The single Keith had focus and direction. Mr. FlipFlop Kidman is having a hard time building his new image. Keith will continue to struggle until he finally accepts that you can't put a round peg into a square hole. And his sugar momma isn't going to help him figure it out-not one bit.

Exactly.

What is the "motive" or "goal" of any blog? It's just another place to share comments and opinions about a specific topic. This blog focuses on Keith & Nicole and everything related to that.

It really is that simple.

Geez.

It's a blog people - just a blog.

And I think anyone paying any attention gets the point.

If you don't like it, think it's lame, or redundant...don't come here everyday and see what's being posted.

I mean, you're obviously interested right? Why else would you be here?

Let's see he says that Laura saved him in 2001 and the diva one saved him in 2007. Keith, Keith, Keith, when will you learn that only God and yourself can save you? Do it for yourself and it will stick! Do it for others and when they are gone it is gone!

To those of you who wonder about the intent of someone who is a little skeptical, well, first I am not the author of these ... but I do appreciate honesty. People don't like being lied too. People don't like being played for the sake of someone making $$$s. I for one am trying to decide whether Keith was playing me from 1997 through 2005 or if he is playing me now. Regardless, the humble Australian act was either just an act or the man is just confused lately. Which is it Keith? It's important, very important! While those that follow blindly may be fooled and not give a dam whether they have been played with, those of us who followed with open eyes and followed because we found honesty in the music and the man ... well it matters to us.

Just remember country music fans in the U.S. are put off by diva shit! Maybe that is why none of the shows this summer are selling out. People are getting sick and tired of your double speak and diva speak!

If that is NOT the real Keith Urban, I hope you wake up before it is too late. If it is the real Keith Urban, then good riddance!

Since everyone is anonymous, I don't know who I'm replying to but that opinion is mine. I wrote it. I did not get it from a rag magazine. There are people in Nashville and a few beyond that know exactly how and why the relationship began. Keith signed onto a movie deal at exactly the same time he started seeing Nicole Kidman. Keith was also dating someone else at that time. Those who were there know the initial shots of Keith and Nicole were for publicity. It's well known in Nashville. What I said was it's hard to tell where that lie (PR) ended and a real relationship started, or if it ever did. Please don't assume I'm out to break them up. I would just like to know the truth because it still seems very PR to me, and those kinds of relationships are a main stay in Hollywood.

LOL. As if we really think that marriage is going to end simply by voicing our opinions.

All I can say is, if people think that the skeptics have that kind of power, then by all means, let's also start posting about ending poverty, world hunger, war, homelessness, people dying of diseases such as cancer & AIDS...

If that is what people think the "motive" is...then they are seriously deluded.

As someone else just posted today, it's just a blog people.

Please name one celebrity who has not lied or manipulated the media to their advantage. Hell, they hire people to do it for them. Its all a game and Nicole is very good at it and Keith is an A student. Websites have been created just to discuss how much the skeptics hate Nicole and how stupid Keith is. These boards are playing right into Nicole's hands. She could care less if the attention is negative or positive. People are still talking about her and that's what she wants.

...SO YOU SAY, but I've heard this scenario all before. Someone you know heard this from someone who lives in Nashville who knows someone on the inside. My point is until to name your sources and give us fact, it will be just like those tabloids you get the information from. I live in Nashville and I know many, many people in the "Industry". Some of those I can call close friends who are right smack dab in the middle of Nashville music and the feedback I get is that Keith is still a very, very well respected artist here, as well as a really decent guy, so I question your information and others who say the same thing. See, goes both ways.

When I was 18 I swore up & down that I would NEVER get married & have children.

When I was 22 I said I would probably not get married or have children.

When I was 24 I got married and thought that maybe someday I would have children.

When I was 26 I got divorced and was thankful we didn't have any kids.

When I was 27 I said I wouldn't get married again and thought for sure kids were out of the question.

When I was 29 I bit the bullet and got married again.

When I was 30 guess what? Yeah, that's right - a baby.

My point is - people change, things change, life changes and with those things so do the things that people say.

Thank God I was not held to any of my statements.

This blog is free speech. If you don't like what "we" skeptics write about Keith then put on your blinders and go over with the other bunnies and play. Keith is NOT the man he used to be. And SHE is the reason for that. His music is NOT priority right now, she is. And if it makes me a skeptic that I don't like the changes she has made in him , then so BE IT !!

Truthfully, what was YOUR priority when you first fell in love and got married? Your career? Probably not, cause we all know what those beginning stages of love does to you. I think, given some time, Keith Urban will be just fine musically - maybe not exactly to a skeptics liking, but more likely to his own.

You're not getting the point. We may not like what you write, but when we try an dispute or argue against it, you tell us to blow off.

As for me naming sources. I don't post ANYWHERE about what someone in the industry has told me because I don't want to get into a fighting match about heresay, as this is beginning to be since I mentioned that I knew people. All I'm saying is that yeah, I know people but they don't gossip about him, it's just in matter of fact conversations I have with them that give me the impressions he's still an upstanding kinda guy. I don't blatantly hear something from one of my inside guys and hurry up and blab it on a board or blog like some of the gossipy skeptics do. I brought up the fact I know people too - SO WHAT! ONLY said that because I hear things differently. Believe me, I WILL never bring up or use my friends that way or mention I know them again!!

=======================================

this was not addressed to me..but i found it rather amusing..

i am in my 40's..been in love and a couple of long term relationships..never felt MARRIAGE was a priority...or the "need" to be such...and though i happen to be "childless by choice.." and though i trully don't mean to offend anyone..why is that littl piece of paper..such a big deal?..you can live,love,have children(if you desire)and have.."Happily ever after" without it..(my parents lived and loved for 45 years, when my dad passed)so my feelings weren't "formed" by lack of love or a "broken" marriage..

like i said i don't mean to offend..it just seems funny to me that that piece of paper,means so much to so many people..but maybe that has something to do with my devoted parents..they always said live together and love together..don't get married..i'm still not sure exactly what they meant..but with divorce rates what they are today..i think they knew more than they were telling!!

I'm responding back because you responded this to me. I also live and work in Nashville and also have friends on Music Row and in the industry so my info does not come from the gossip rags. I didn't say he wasn't a well respected artist. I said my reasoning for questioning this relationship was because of it's PR beginnings, which ARE well known in Nashville. Perhaps your sources and mine are different or perhaps you're just not as "in" as you think you are.

Ahhh, worthwhile by whose standards? Oh yes, the sitting skeptics who only hear what they want to hear. Who wear ear muffs the rest of the time when the challenge is raised and others say they have contrary info to their exalted insiders.


On another note - I guess Keith was double-speaking when he said something about playing Scotland next time they play. Just got word he's added 5 gigs in October to the UK, 1 in Scotland & 1 in Ireland.

That's a good question. Did anyone see that the presale was the same day that the shows were announced. I think they've since changed the presale date to tomorrow, but why do they give such short notice. Most of the people who could attend the October shows will be at the current shows and probably don't know anything about the new shows, much less have a computer on vacation to buy tickets to the October shows. These presales are really starting to piss me off.

Even though the European dates don't effect me cause I'm not going, what if he starts that crap in the US...I'd be pissed if I only got a 24 hour notice for the presale. AHHH this just keeps getting worse and worse.

Well using your logic, I guess Nicole Kidman is NOT in love since she has not missed a beat with her career. Actually she is working more than ever these days.

And I agree with the poster who said that the 'piece of paper' is NOT what should matter. Laura was the love of Keith's life yet he did not give up his career for her. Of course Laura wasn't the princess of OZ with the means to support a husband who decided not to work anymore.

And I said I ALSO have close friends who work in the industry. I don't think we differ at all in that way. And NO, the information that comes out of Music Row is not limited to just Keith Urban. What's sad is your assumptions.

But if you really did have close friends in Nashville, in the industry, and on the Row, you would know the details of how this relationship started, and because you seem not to, I doubt very much you know anybody at all.

Why do the bunnies always feel it's necessary for people to reveal their "sources?" Just because some may claim to be in the know doesn't mean they need to name whoever is telling them stuff.

Sorry, but I hate all of this "Take me to your leader...Tell me your sources" crap! I personally have no sources, but if I did, do you really think I or anyone else would tell complete strangers who they are? Whether the sources are true friends, or just merely acquaintances, certainly they aren't going to pass around names on a message board or blog - we are all complete strangers here!

If sources are revealed, it WILL get back to them - do you think for a second they then will share any more information? Wake up, people! It is your right and responsibility to believe what you want. If you chose not to, fine, but naming the name of a source isn't going to change that. Do you think for a minute if I told you that I am personal friends with Keith Urban himself, and that he told me "ABC", you would believe me anyway? Give me a break!

Friends, sources, whoknowswhat? That's the real downfall of the entire skeptical arena IMO. What started out as discussion about Keith & Nicole turned ugly when people started using their friends and other people as sources of information for dirt on Keith. I don't believe I ever saw good stuff coming out of those sources, it was always used to dispute, corrupt and place even more doubt in the fans minds.

I wonder if any other group of fans are picking apart their favorite guy and his choice of mate, life, car, hairstyle, makeup, whatever?

The downright evilness of what the skeptics have done has made me far less of a fan than Nicole could ever be blamed for. Shame on you.

Three months after a highly publicized, pompous and flamboyant wedding, Keith Urban hits bottom and needs three months of rehab. "His wife" leaves him to travel the globe following her dream and continuing her relentless pursuit of the media limelight. She drags him to event after event, where he appears uncomfortable at the very least. She demeans him in interviews on the red carpet and on tv. There are many more examples of her selfishness, as was, and will continue to be, outlined in this blog by many.

Kidman wouldn't know the first thing about love or loving a man like Keith. Obviously, what is foremost in her mind is herself, and Keith suffers.

SHAME ON HER!

It's really too bad you don't see this. You just want to worship her with no regard for him. Shame on you.

They don't have to. Other "guys" don't feel the need to say one thing and do another. "I want my private life private" then have a public spread in People, drive a Bentley around Nashville, etc." Attention, Attention.

No, others are like Dierks - marrying his HS sweetheart privately, eloping quietly to Mexico, or like LBT and the like. Perhaps Keith should have taken some pointers from them.

Worship her? HARDLY! Hate her as do many skeptics? NO!

I have plenty of regard for Keith, probably far more than you. I at least recognize the fact that he's a big boy, capable of making his own decisions - right or wrong - and in spite of his marriage wish him only the best. And if his best is not the same thing as what I think his best is, then so be it - it's his life.

"But if you really did have close friends in Nashville, in the industry, and on the Row, you would know the details of how this relationship started, and because you seem not to, I doubt very much you know anybody at all."

No need to reveal who my friends are since I didn't spout off that I had a scoop! You did!

Believe me, I wouldn't use my FRIENDS that way. "



First of all, it's hardly a scoop. The details regarding the beginnings of their relationship has been well known in Nashville since its beginnings which is nearing 2 years now. If this is the first you've heard of it, then you've definitely proven you have no friends on the inside of Music Row or Nashville. It's old news.

Secondly, I don't need to go to friends for dirt about the music business. When you work within the music industry, you're aware of the good, the bad, and the ugly on a daily basis.

"And we should just take their word for it? I DON'T THINK SO!"

The skeptics were the ones who revealed Keith was still drinking and was still seeing other women long before any tabloid got hold of that information.

It's funny that you would take the word of people in news stories that say how wonderful and happy they are when that info is also given by sources.

The skeptics have proven themselves time and time again. In the months leading up to his rehab, skeptic sources said he was acting nervous and changing his stories. They said he was seen drinking. At the same time, he said he was calm and at peace. It's known now he was neither.

I was skeptic of the skeptics at first but I've followed along long enough to see what they say usually becomes fact a couple months later.

Oh please, that was no real revelation on their part. Anyone that followed Keith closely knew what the hell was going on. Keith had never stopped drinking - he'd been seen many times in prior years with alcohol. There were always rumours about women, some girlfriends, some not. The only thing the skeptics did was provide a forum for that information to flow.

Then why on earth are they revealing the dirt in the first place? Don't think I could do that to my friends and I don't even know anyone on the "inside"!!

It was no surprise Keith was drinking and carrying on with other women. The skeptics didn't blow the cover off it, it was common knowledge. KEITH has always been like...even with his other girlfriends--nothing new.

Don't give the skeptics that much credit - they know as much as anyone else. It's just that they dwell on all the bad stuff because they haven't been able to get good seats lately.

Common knowledge to the skeptics, yes. But the stories being printed and those most people believe was about how perfect this relationship was when it was far from it. The skeptics were the ones who brought that "common knowledge" to the boards where people were being brainwashed by the fairytale PR.

I have to disagree with you about what skeptics know. I think some know a lot and speak very little. I also think some know a little and speak a lot. I tend to go with the first group.

I'm not a skeptic or a bunny really but I can plainly see this marriage will not be happily ever after. Anyone should be able to see that. They've had some pretty big issues and haven't even made it a year yet. Most normal everyday people couldn't make that last let alone two very arrogant celebrities. These two are too much alike. Of course this is JMO and I'm really nobody. I just think it's pretty obvious this marriage will end just like any other Hollywood marriage. I just can't believe that of all the Hollywood marriages, THIS one will be the one to make it and stand the test of time. That's just not likely and totally laughable IMO. Anyway, I like Keith's music and can't wait to see him here in the States. Oh yeah, and no offense to him but he sure does need a lot of saving doesn't he?

Yes, I knew that Keith wasn't perfect that's not news to anyone whose been around for a while. I'm a skeptic and proud of it. Oh and by the way, I have fabulous tickets to the show that I will be going to in June.

What I take exception to is the fact that the sideshow which is presently his personal life is overshadowing his career. Instead of people talking about how talented Keith is or what a showman he is, instead they are talking about who he's married to and whatever he PR people have put out for the Tabloids to pick up on. I find that a shame. There isn't an article or review of one of Keith's shows that doesn't mention his wife by name. What other performer has their wife constantly mentioned in articles about their professional accomplishments. Clint Black married an actress, at the time Clint and Lisa Hartman married she was a pretty popular televisions actress. Yes there are articles about their marriage but they aren't to the exclusion of articles about Clint's newest professional venture. Lisa doesn't try to overshadow her mate and take every bit of media attention. I just don't seem to understand why Nicole feels the need to be mentioned in every bit of media attention Keith gets.

Not true.

The skeptics came to be b/c of these very insights & opinions - which was NOT appreciated nor was it believed at the time...they got kicked off of the board they were on and had to start their own.

No one believed them then.

And, on other message boards, within the last year especially, when the skeptics claimed Keith had been drinking, changing, in trouble, miserable and that there were other women and it would come out...they were called jealous & delusional. They were told there was nothing wrong with him, they were just seeing things, he was fine.

So, a lot of people did not know these things - they argued these facts over & over - until he ended up in rehab and Amanda Wyatt showed up with proof...which was never retracted, denied, nor, was she sued.

Looks to me that Keith doesn't even know who Keith is.

He says one thing in one interview and then contradicts himself a month later.

Everything he says is suspect.

Good research by the way!

Keith signed onto a movie deal at exactly the same time he started seeing Nicole Kidman. Keith was also dating someone else at that time. Those who were there know the initial shots of Keith and Nicole were for publicity. It's well known in Nashville.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've been following this all pretty closely. Since day one back in July 2005. I didn't pick up on the connection between his movie deal and his starting to date Nicole.

Okay, they talked about the movie deal quite a bit in the summer of 2005. Then suddenly it disappeared. And Keith said in an interview in Dec 2005 (?) there is no movie deal.

So, how is this all connected, exactly?

He got the movie deal and then started dating her? Or he agreed to date her in exchange for a movie deal?

So why did the movie deal just go away?

Help me with the time line.
