Nicole Kidman Needs a Time Out

Where to start? Someone, somewhere, thought Nicole Kidman had something worthy to say again. Maybe because she says such insipid stuff or is it because she was married to Tom Cruise that these editors know she will get a headline? Why? Who knows, but Kidman has been spewing her load of wretched doublespeak, this time to Interview Magazine. Interview, founded by Andy (everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes) Warhol. Interview, a magazine that felt Keith Urban was worthy of two interviews in a two month period last year. These editors in their New York City high rises haven't a clue as to what the average, normal, functioning human being finds interesting. But they put Kidman and her waning popularity on the cover. What she had to say was again either the ravings of one who's botox has seeped into her skull, or her noticeable lack of formal education causes her to resort to over-talking and connecting ideas that have no place being connected.

What did she say? Basically, who cares? And that is it. She insults Keith Urban every time she opens her mouth. She insults her children in verbiage. She insults the person who is reading the interview. I have reached my limit.

I don't hate Nicole Kidman. I wouldn't pay any attention to her except she forced all of us to acknowledge her presence in Keith Urban's life. I am not going to rehash the PR relationship. Anything he tries to do positively for his career is trumped by her coming into the mix and reminding the world he was nothing until her. Well Nicole, he was and is someone, even if you don't see that. I am so sick of your babble about love and relationships. It is somewhat easy if you don't like where you are - MOVE. If you can't love the person you are with find someone else. What makes your life all that worthy of anyone’s concern? How many of us have been left by our partners? How many of us have to raise kids in a very tricky world? You aren't unique, you aren't even comparable. So what do we do?

I propose that in January of 2008 we ignore Nicole Kidman. Starting in January - no more talking about her. No posting articles about her on web sites or internet message boards. Ignore her. Forget she exists. Freeze the Granny Freeze. No comments regardless of what happens. We all know that no one watches her movies. Avoid her on TV; don't buy magazines that put her on the cover. Perhaps, just perhaps, ignoring her we can all get some peace of mind. I doubt she will care nor notice, narcissists only look at themselves. It will make me feel much better jumping off a ship she has been steering for way too long.

You might just cause a riot with your plan for the New Year UMyths. Whatever will those ninnys over at the E! board do with themselves if they cant trash a country star they used to love and his wife? LMAO There are more people that are fans or dont care one way or another about Nicole Kidman. Go ahead with your freeze-out. It wont make a bit of difference.

Well as is plainly obvious, Urbans career, which a year and a half ago was on the ascent, is now clearly on the decline. As of yet not in the lowest levels as kidmans, marrying her has not helped his music career at all. In fact, he has simply been relagated as a bit player in her manufactured menagerie of melancoly. Does urban regain that first fame, the initial excitement he achieved with his music? I doubt it, his career, the music is buried by her need to engage in therapy, suspiciously around the time she has a movie to plug. It would be interesting to guage what urban has to say with new music coming out soon, if its popular enough to be relevent to his remaining fans. Will it be as impassioned toward her as she obviously isnt toward him?

Problem is maclen-the new cd coming out in November is not new and has no new music on it. It's a reshuffle of his "hits" along with a cover of a Steve Forbert song. So if it's relevance he is looking for with this cd-it's strike three.............

I like the idea of ignoring her starting in January and continuing for the rest of my life. Although I don't think it will make a bit of difference.

The real question is - Can the skeptics ignore Nicole Kidman and stop talking about her? NK is integral to their justification of their existence, so if they stop talking about her then there is no reason to be skeptical about anything in Keith's life - it is what it is.

I thought i read somewhere there would be at least 2 new songs? Well, its a sure sign of career desperation when you release a "greatest hits" cd so soon after a disappointing selling cd. I also find the name of the cd...18 Kids, tellingly ironic... urban claims the songs are like his kids, hence the title. (Hey, does kidman know this? Probably not!) And well again, just to be monontonous, because he is, or was all about his music, just saw that his previous cd has sold only 1.3 mill copies. Certainly a comedown, no doubt only to be better than the greatest hits cd... can it sell better? That is the question urban no doubt is sweating... but then again, he has an "adequate" marriage, according to the little woman, to look forward to.

...another quick point, just noticed urbans birthday is tommorrow. Will there be a press release i wonder? How she made a magnanimous gesture, privately of course, out of site of the paps... a heartwarming story to warm the hearts of his fans? Or will it just be a footnote to her story, perhaps spent on her movie set?...Again...

Urban Myths said...

We shall see Maclen. She won't possibly let his 40th birthday get any notice without it being all about her.

Ding, ding, ding! Read today that she plans on walking the red carpet at the ARIA's with Keith on Sunday night. He can't walk it at her events, but she'll sure steal the thunder from his limelight!

Well that will be a first right? She must be desperate for publicity. Checked the story out and not only will she, its confirmed! She wants to be sure the paparatz are all given notice to show up en masse, get her photo out to as many outlets as possible. Yes, it wouldnt be so obviously calculated and apparently self serving if she were to have allowed urban on her red carpet even once before this. It seems urban has limo escorting and purse holding duty this sunday evening.

notachance said...

BTW - just have to comment on the wrinkles pic - she looks like a cross between NK & Sigourney Weaver.

Poor Keith, once again on purse duty. Maybe we should just get him one of his own, you know, a man purse! I hear it's very European.

And I have heard that Nic's SISTER will walk with them!

Maybe Nic needs her sister to hold her hand, tell her jokes in their private sister language and make her happy.

What a circus event this will be.

maclen said...

Banbotox, over at kidmans Forehead I've been wondering about the sister...could there be some kind of psychological reason since the marriage to urban, kidman seems to have latched onto the sis? She's getting as many mentions it seems as urban from kidman in interviews, shes getting in on kidmans photo spreads in magagzine, urban's gotten zilch... (doesnt she realize he's desperate to sell cds?) And then i even remembered the photo shot with her sisters kid in the vanity fair piece and so I theorized that kidman actually thinks of her sis as the "husband" figure. And urban, according to her own words, is considered like the "troubled" sibling, ready to blow her image... just as in her new movie, margot at the wedding. Do you think she realizes the paralels?

notachance said...

Why do I get the feeling that NK & sis are walking the red carpet, but Keith will be inside already "rehearsing"......

Oh yeah, just like at the last Oscars? Where she ditched urban for naomi watts? It wouldnt be a huge stretch. These ARIA awards, are they a local aussie show? Its something interesting to look for.

notachance said...

It appears they did the "walk" together, but it was all about the Nic - ole. Not surprised though, as Keith's performance was kept under wraps until the last minute so as to keep his fans from making the necessary arrangements to be at the event and cheer him on. A lot of the Aussie fans are pissed about that.

He did win for Country Album of the Year, however the Pwhipper dedicated the award to his wife. His performance with a group called the John Butler Trio was the hit of the evening (as his performances usually are...).

maclen said...

I think this usual performance of appearences is about as sucessful for them as the last awards appearence. Meaning that it wont really make a big difference. She didnt make a very good impression, and just got the usual cracks about hair, swollen lips, pasty pale complexion,ETc. I think the important news coming out from them in interviews is that she will be tied up with filming in australia for another 6 weeks...which even drew a crack from urban about how "there'll be peace in burma before this movie finishes shooting". So I guess the breaking news of a few months ago from urban that his "precious one' will be touring with him in NOv. is off. Since all his gigs are in the US, will she even fly over for a few of them, for him? I'd bet no way, jose! Urban will have to learn not to plan anything involving her, or he will find it so frustating that he has to take a back seat to her plans, and right now its to her faltering movies, which lately seem to drone on and on, and on...

I'd love to. But then I wouldn't have a blog. How would I fill my lonely "bitter" nights????

CJ said...

Releasing a greatest hits album was the fastest and easiest way he could fulfill his record contract with the label and then retire to follow the wife around the world as she films movies. (The "retiring" actress has how many lined up now - 5,6?)

Nicole will probably set him up under her production company so he can record if/when she decides to let him. I expect his touring schedule to drop off to almost nothing in two years or less. Just as soon as he finishes his contractual promotion of LPATWCT and the Hits.

I sure wish he'd learned from Bryan White and Wade Hayes. Some day he'll get resentful for being the one to sacrifice his career and follow her around the world, making her happy, as she does what she pleases. By then it may be too late to resurrect his career.
