It doesn't matter if you win, it's all about being seen

For most performers an awards show is like working. Tomorrow night it’s the CMT awards. There will be a red carpet and there will be press there. Keith Urban is up for one award, male video. Back in the gravy days, he owned those awards, sometimes being nominated for up to five awards. Those days are over. The chances of him winning are slim to none. We can go into why…

The videos really are routine. That the video for I Told You So, which in this writer’s opinion was one of only two strong songs on the CD, was interesting, but not catching like Urban's others. Also, factor in that the support to call in or vote for those videos for the awards just isn't there anymore. We know why, but the monkey heads won't admit it. But none of that matters because what matters is that Keith Urban is going to show up and the lovely Mrs. Urban will too and at the end of the day it’s all about feeding the fame addiction more than the music.

There have been recent supposed sightings of Kidman in the Nashville area. Buying maternity wear, going to yoga and walking by herself in the park near Keith's former home. There have not been any confirmations that they are checked into a hotel, which lends credence to the rumor that that $3 million mansion is actually Urbanville, and they are living there. Oh Nicole, didn't Keith build you a gym in the big old residence? Can't you do your workouts and yoga there? Shopping? Nicole Kidman? She hates to shop. She has designers beg and plead for her to wear their creations. Maternity wear? For what, the ever declining bump? Nope, dear reader, what we have here is the fame-ho at her most addicted. Parading herself around Nashville so there is a buzz that she will be at the awards; that she will grace the ceremony with her regal and completely out-of-place presence.

Out of place. How can I say that? Her husband is nominated; he is also slated to perform. Yes, out of place because frankly her presence takes the attention off the awards and puts it on Urbans. That is the goal. Last November you may remember that Nicole showed up in an Alexander McQueen gown. Yep, the cost of her gown was more than the cost of several of the other women’s gowns put together. Her pink butterfly dress along with Keith's Tom Ford Sherlock Holmes get-up made all the tabloids and entertainment shows. Of course there was an awards show that evening, but who cares about that? Keith and Nicole where there and HAD to be seen.

That is the point as to why they are in Nashville. Keith is trying to salvage his career, but even if he is made fun of by many at the awards show, it won't matter, because Kidman will be there. Nicole Kidman Superstar. Add to that her "pregnancy" and that’s the story for tomorrow night. It doesn't matter in the least about those silly awards; it’s about being seen. Play that image up Nicole. All those people who think that you care about Nashville will be satisfied. Keith will look like he should be there and there will be a whole lot of photos for the whole world to see of the "Nashvillian Australians" being the simple humble folks they want the world to see. I do wonder if they will pass around some recent photos of their trip to Tahiti or will they just drive home early to their humble Nashville home?

well, mr. pumpkin haircut, i certainly hope you learned a lesson with the CMA's but we'll have to see if you have any sense left at all.

will we see the happy family image played to the hilt with the mrs. and small bump in tow?

who cares if it ruins the show for the other artists? certainly not mr. diva pants or his employer wife.

great blog, btw.....i can hardly wait for the red carpet.

maclen said...

Yeah,it seems they "live and reside" in Tennessee... but for only a few days, and only when urban has a country award show to attend. Its just another public opportunity for kidman. Urban heads out on tour the 17th... kidman I'll bet will allow a few days to be seen and photographed in Tennessee before she high tails it back to the land of OZ to recupperate from the strain and ordeal of sitting through an urban performance. And Ive just come to the realization that the recently leaked news stories of purchased homes in Tenn. and LA are in reaction to the commentary here on Urban Myths about her forgotten comments about settling down in Tenn, and how she never sees cruises adopted kids. And to think it was here right in front of my eyes!

realitycheck said...

Many said Keith and Nicole would never be back in Nashville. And now that they are its just for appearances. These two cant win. Who cares what the price of her gown costs. Do you think Tim and Faith are strangers to high fashion? I'd rather see Nicole in one of her daring yet beautiful choices than Tiffany Fallon in an ensemble once again reaffirming her Playboy playmate status. The only reason Umyths you say she's out of place is because you dont want her there. Well tough cookies.

I cant wait for the red carpet either. I love seeing both of them dressed up.

doublewide said...

exactly maclen! if we complain/comment about something, VOILA!!! there it is!

her peeps are definitely perusing our wonderings

realitycheck said...

maclen, if you think the rumors have anything to do with whats posted here Ive got some ocean front property in Arizona to sell you.

realitycheck said...

doublewide no they arent. Every aspect about Nicole and Keith have been criticized to the enth degree. So of course whats discussed here will come up later.

doublewide said...

oh i forgot RC that you ARE the official KUNK authority

again, you continue to quote and offer lame responses

and if you think see-thru dresses showing off your thong underwear beautiful and daring, then lord help your fashion sense.

doublewide said...

NASHVILLE doesn't want her there, but hey, you are the authority

undecided said...

Doublewide, I didn't realize you spoke for Nashville.

Since when is wearing an expensive gown out of place at an awards show? What should she wear, a gingham dress and a hat with the price tag still on it?

I'm no fan of hers but she's entitled to accompany Keith on the red carpet by virtue of being married to him and she doesn't have to ask Nashville for permission.

isitoveryet said...

A Sherlock Holmes is not acceptable at a country music awards show - NEVER! He looked like a complete dork - completely out of place. Same can be said for Kidman in her formal long gown. These two stuck out at the awards show like a sore thumb.

Just like last year at the CMAs, she'll show up in Nashville like she has lived there for years. We know better. I'm glad to see that she will be sitting next to him at another awards show in the States where he doesn't win an award that he has won before she came into his life and brainwashed him.

I had this thought today - remember when his hair was the longest it had been for a while and his scruff was never so long as it was at the end of the tour just as he was starting to make his album? Do you remember that? He goes from that look to now being Tom Cruise Jr. Anybody find the extreme changes in his appearance odd?

isitoveryet said...

I meant a Sherlock Holmes suit in my above post - sorry!

doublewide said...

Doublewide, I didn't realize you spoke for Nashville.
----------------------------------

but, of course!

i agree isitoveryet.....i much prefer him NOT in his "tommy suit"

Imahick said...

I don't remember anyone on here say she would never be in Nashville again, but I do believe they have no intentions of LIVING in Nashville again...not as long as they are a couple together. By LIVING, I mean staying in Nashville for more than a couple days every few months. LIVING somewhere means putting down roots, actually staying put for a period of time. Nashville isn't glamorous enough for NK.

I don't know if Nashville doesn't like NK, but I think she associates it with AMANDAGATE and doesn't really care to spend much time there now.

As far as NK wearing the gown to the CMA's and likely the CMT's awards, the truth is they dressed for the Oscar red carpet, not the country music red carpet. And if you saw pictures of Keith at the dinner the night before in honor of Willie Nelson and ? Kris Kristoferson (I may have the honoree's wrong), he was wearing a formal black suit. Not even the honorees were dressed like that. It was stiff and so NOT Keith, that I felt badly for him. But now, that's how he dresses.

What ever happened to the stylist who used to pick edgy, vintage outfits for him? I think NK has replaced said stylist. Either she or her own stylist are "doing" (and not in the biblical sense) Keith now and it is not him. He's turned into Hollywood Keith Cruis-Urban-Kidman. And that makes him look out of place at his own frickin' award show.

isitoveryet said...

I'm sure Tiffany will show up looking like a respectable mommy-to-be should be - first, she'll have a baby bump that is more significant than Kidman's. I don't believe Tiffany has worn anything see-through on the red carpet. If you bash Tiffany for posing nude in Playboy, then you certainly should be bashing your idol for being nude in her movies!

Mr. Kidman needs to fire his new stylist because she is dressing him like a complete loser - not to mention dressing him like Tom, and Keith Kidman is idiot for not noticing what she is doing to his appearance.

banbotox said...

Great blog!

Keith is just a pawn, following the kidman PR plan. Show up when it can be all about her and the alleged bump...maybe they will be late and run in like they did for the grammys-ooops, I mean Oscars.

The dress she wore last year was awful and he looked so out of place. kidman has no daring yet beautiful outfits-they are just tacky and trashy but that fits her so well-she should start buying off the rack, it would be an improvement.

-------------------------------

i think they were late to this function also, you know, to make a grand entrance...far be it from NK to be in hicksville USA and not be extra extra special.

and yeah, he's an idiot for dressing like he does now

undecided said...

I think basing so much dislike and ridicule on what he wears is as shallow as Nicole's manipulation of the media. So what if he wears a suit? His fly is zipped and he still looks better than Montgomery Gentry.

Truth is right now there's nothing to pick on him for, so you're stretching for something.

doublewide said...

oh we've been picking on his suits for a long time!

and undecided i do agree with ya on Montgomery Gentry....that was pretty funny

but keith is busy doing something....being fabulous and hired! and a little touring to feed his ego thrown in

Whatever said...

doublewide said... "and if you think see-thru dresses showing off your thong underwear beautiful and daring, then lord help your fashion sense."

I second this. I third and fourth it too.

Gag.

cricket said...

It's not trying to pick on him for anything. Sadly it just happens to be the truth.The difference in the way he dresses since she got her nasty red claws into him is like night and day.His manner on the red carpet is completly different.Before NK he looked hot as hell.His hair looked great his clothes were stylish and hip looking. He was relaxed and charming on the red carpet.Now he seems nervous and ill at ease.He looks stiff and unhappy and unsure of what to say anymore. He looks like he's wearing someone else's clothes and they don't fit. Everything that made him so special and unique and so wonderful to watch are gone now. His hair,his clothes.even his personality seems to be different since she came along.She's changed everything about him and it sure hasn't been for the better.

doublewide said...

cricket, you nailed it

EVERYTHING is different. not too terribly long ago, i refused to say anything negative about his looks. IMO he sold out for fame and money and is trying to portray a fake sham of a marriage to the world, enjoying the high life with a heinous person. ...now i bash him. i think he's earned it

CJ said...

The only reason Nashville doesn't want NK in town is because when she is around is the only time Nashville has paparazzi. The rest of the time the country superstars can move around freely and be normal people. When she's there the photogs descend on the town and everyone has to watch their step to not be caught on film by Nicole's photographic promoters.

CJ said...

Does anyone remember the "Where the Blacktop Ends" video? The first (and every) time I saw it I thought "Something is off - not quite right." What was it? I believe it was the short hair, Wrangler jeans, and Justin roper boots. That's not Keith, he wasn't comfortable dressing differently and trying to be someone he wasn't, and it showed. It was almost so strong you could touch it. He did it to try and fit in with perceived country standards and by trying to change he did himself - and others - a disservice. I think the "new" Keith Cruise Kidman is the same thing.

realitycheck said...

"I'm sure Tiffany will show up looking like a respectable mommy-to-be should be - first, she'll have a baby bump that is more significant than Kidman's. I don't believe Tiffany has worn anything see-through on the red carpet. If you bash Tiffany for posing nude in Playboy, then you certainly should be bashing your idol for being nude in her movies!"

----------

First off no celebrity is my "idol". I reserve my worship for God. Tiffany has never IMO looked classy. From the makeup and hair to the dress she screams playmate. And i can and will criticize her for being in Playboy. There is a huge difference between nudity for artistic purposes and what is presented in Playboy. You can do tasteful nude shots but you wont find those in that magazine. I also will criticize those actresses who wont do nudity but have no problem getting the director to find someone else to do it for her. At least Nicole is authentic when she plays a role and her nudity has never been gratuitous.

Hugh Hefner has been quoted as saying he wants Nicole to pose for his magazine. If she is so obsessed with nudity, sex, and her own body as the skepti-haters would like us to believe, why hasnt she jumped at the chance?

And laugh if you will but i dont think the see-through dress was a stunt.

Let's face it, it doesnt matter what Nicole wears to the awards. Something about her or the outfit that night will be amiss in the eyes of Umyths.

cricket said...

Yes something about her is always amiss.Be it the french fried thinning hair,bald spots,frozen expression,disgusting over the top puffed up lips something always looks wrong. And she did it all to herself.She used to look like a normal person until she decided to try to be the female version of Michael Jackson. She looks like a freak on the red carpet now no matter what she wears,because nothing can take the attention away from what she has done to herself. And the fact that she claims to be all natural just makes her even more of a joke. She can't possibly think anyone believes that lie.

lightsourceyoga said...

I love Urban Myths, I look forward to the new posts and read all the comments! I finally have decided to post. I never gave NK much thought, other than I left half way through Moulin Rouge. When she became involved with KU,I started reading everything. It bothers me that this woman made all of those comments about moving to a farm in Tennessee, raising goats to make cheese! I hurt for KU when he commented that he had found his spiritual home in Leipers Fork, TN His lifelong dream was to move to Nashville. He has allowed NK to steal those dreams from him. Is being married to her worth giving up all of your lifelong dreams and goals? I think he is one of the hardest working performers out there,although he desperately needs new music, has she crushed his creative gift? I think so. I worry that her overbearing/selfish behavior might trigger another relapse.
I think most of her red carpet outfits are hideous. Remember the red number with the big bow by her neck? Does he not see what is happening? I agree he looks awkward, uncomfortable and really embarassed in those suits she puts him in, they all fit poorly.
Sorry for the length of this, there is just so much venting I need to do about them. I LOVE it that he made more $$ than she did last year, how did she make any money anyway? She never has worked as hard as he does. Even though the concerts are now all the same and he can do them in his sleep, he does put everything into them. I hope he can regain his creative spark, and stand up to follow his dreams. We will see, but in the meantime she needs to stay in Brentwood or Sudney and leave him alone, but he appears to be strangely dependant on her. I don't see a happy ending with these two. Does anyone here think that he reads all the negative comments that are written about her? What do you imagine he is thinking? They seem oblivious to all the negative comments.

I found something very odd. She had started a baby gift registry last year, in the spring of 2007.
Go to: www.petitetresor.com type her name in the area for finding a gift and there she is, and his name too. What was she doing?
Sorry for the length, I will keep it short next time, but thanks to everyone, it helps to know I am not alone with these negative feelings!!

maclen said...

Hey lightsourceyoga, very excellent first post. And welcome to the growing number who do feel as you do. And your right, unfortunately for urban, he is completly dependant on kidman... to arrange his touring and break schedules, where he's to live... his vacations, how he dresses to awards and premieres. Having simply traded in one addiction for another, some might claim that it is in his best interest... but it's only momentary... remember through all this co-dependancy, hes still an addict and alcoholic. But if it is true as we are claiming, and eventually his long for sought after fame and fortune is but a tarnished memory, he may wake up one day and realize that it was all not worth it. And being a simple full time red carpet escort and valet to someone like kidman may not be so fulfilling, as he seems to be only just experiencing on those pointless photo ops she makes him engage in. The hits are dwindling, his noms are dwindlling, cd sales certainly dwindling...and the only thing that is increasing are the tired photo ops... the ones where he looks like he'd rather be somewhere else. As a non urban, or urban music fan, my commentary can be taken as a simple warning... to be ignored or pondered upon ... by the urban devoted, the worshippers... the apologists...but the devotees of urban do remind me of my favorite scene in Lawrence of Arabia... when a Lawrence close advisor is told that "you love him!" he replies, "No, I fear him." and when then told, "Then why do you weep?" he replies, " If I fear him who love him, how must he fear himself, who hates himself?" I'd wager that urban is hating himself for the desision he made, but his devoted do not fear for him... and to me that makes them hopeless, because urban is hopeless.

Welcome lightsourceyoga, glad you decided to post.

Your link didn't work for me, but this will take you directly to their registry - and it was created 3/17/2007.

isitoveryet said...

realitycheck - I'm so laughing in your face right now. YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE! Being nude in a movie is art, but being photographed for Playboy is not art? Having sex with men and boys in movies is art, but just lying there naked for a picture is not art? You soooooo idolize Kidman for those comments alone. Do you realize how ridiculous you just sounded? I bet you want to be just like Kidman when you grow up!

Carolyn said...

"realitycheck - I'm so laughing in your face right now. YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE! Being nude in a movie is art, but being photographed for Playboy is not art?"

Realitycheck is right. Posing for a semi pornographic magazine where images of nude women are used primarily for sexual stimulation is not the same thing as nudity in the context of a serious film.

For many Americans who don't have much understanding, nor the capacity to differentiate between art and pornography, nudity is nudity, no matter in what context and for what purpose.

If you compare Nicole Kidman to a vulgar and cheap woman who poses nude for images she knows will be used for one purpose only you show a staggering ignorance.

isitoveryet said...

Excuse me, but I personally know and grew up with some Playboy bunnies, and they are not "vulgar and cheap women". You cannot say posing in Playboy is not art, but acting out sex scenes in movies is art. They are one in the same, right? Most bunnies pose one time - Kidman keeps going back for more and more nudity and sex scenes! The women in Playboy are acting just like Kidman acts her sex scenes with teenage boys. You are a fool to think differently.

doublewide said...

you really have no idea how foolish this statement is do ya?

and who gives a rip about tiffany, we're talking about NK here

ya got nothing and so you have to bring in somebody else, and i know we've all done that but i'm trying not to. that's irrelevant.

and I WILL criticize NK for nudity because NONE of it is tasteful IMO

doublewide said...

welcome lightsource yoga!!!! great to have you aboard...

nice post! you brought up some very valid points.

maclen said...

Ha ha! The "glowing" and expecting couple have been spotted...

http://x17online.com/celebrities/nicole_kidman/comin_through-04142008.php

....and boy, are they not happy about it. They are in full crash and burn mode. Seems kidman is indeed trying to hide out, as the comments reflect, is this woman 6 months pregnant? Is she a week, one month... pregnant? And urban looks very embarrassed and ashamed to be seen out with her... as if he's never had his pic taken by paps? These people have been in the public eye for years? Well orb, if you simply stay cool and simply ignore them, the pictures will simply turn out to be ho hum... act as if your trying to dodge bullets and you'll reveal your not handling the situation very well. Have a nice few days "vacation" in your own so called chosen hometown.

CJ said...

Yeah maclen, I think that's the first and only time - ever - I've seen a pic with Keith's hand covering his face. What's up with that Keith - flaunting the wedding ring?

CJ said...

At least Keith remembered to smile for the "annoying paps" along with his wife this time. That really convinces us he doesn't want them there. He looks happier there than we've seen him in weeks. Maybe the vacation did him good.

isitoveryet said...

Ah . . . yeah . . . her hair . . . um, I can't come up with a word bad enough to describe it. How far along is she "supposed" to be?

Tara said...

I would cover my face too if I was seen with her. But Keith don't you want everyone to know that she is there with you.. Apparently there is a photo of the seating chart for tonight and Kidman is front and center. Interesting career move Nicole, wouldn't it make more sense to be in NYC at the Lincoln Center tribute to Meryl Streep? I mean at least in the big apple she won't have to ruin Keith's evening by constantly asking him who is that again?

Urban Myths said...

How far along is she "supposed" to be?
Five, six, or seven months, depending on which "source" you believe. Ha.

They both look ridiculous in the latest photo op. Her hair and outfit is hideous, but matches the smug grin on her face. What's he hiding do you suppose?

maclen said...

Also, what is the problem they seem to have with the US paps, as opposed with the OZ paps, who kidman smiles and waves at? Is it because her local OZ contingent are all bought and paid for? Is it because she has a direct line, red phone to the aussie press, as the countries "beloved daughter" status? Is it because she is not popular enough in the states to be comfortable with the press here? Yes, her "unprofessionalism" isnt gonna help her cause... the cause of trying to promote...herself.

maclen said...

Well, I would say Urban Myths, this is not an official kidman photo op, so urban is simply behaving in the manner that he would normally act. Again, its the states so no planned photo ops, she has the awards show for that. It is apparent to even kidman that the states is in no way her stage, but Australia is. Again, its the idea in her mind, better to be a big fish in a little pond, that a little fish in a big pond. So of course, her next film Australia will bomb in the states, and maybe gross what... 10-11 mill in OZ? Really impressive.

maclen said...

So it appears kidman is gearing up to attend the CMTs with the orb. Perhaps that was why she and the orb were uptight in the x17 pics... she was afraid it would spoil her latest unveiling... of a hardly noticable "expecting in July... give or take" bump, in what I would predict after having been pretty much hiding out... she will maybe wear a very loose and flowing dress, ala jolie at the spirit awards just after the pregnancy rumors came out. The talk and mock comments about her almost or maybe baby could be getting to her. After having been trying to flaunt it, it now seems to be a "road' bump, that she's now acting like shes in a witness protection program does not show a level of confidence in her latest pr stunt.

realitycheck said...

Ive seen the first pics of Nic and Keith tonight. Her dress is gorgeous. And i absolutely love her hair. Keith looks good...not my favorite outfit he's ever worn. But they look very happy to be there tonight. Good luck Keith!!!

maclen said...

Aye carumba..it appears it has slipped kidmans mind that she is pregnant....

http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?EventId=80586132

the only bump she has is the slightly bulging pattern onthe front of her dress. I stand by my past comment, and I declare that kidman baby bump watch is over.

CJ said...

Well now we know why she hid out for a week and went on "vacation" - she was getting the implants evened out and enlarged. She can blame it on the pregnancy you know and still claim she is all natural. Haven't seen Mrs. Jo Don Rooney yet but I'd say Nic's low cut dress can rival any bunnies dress. At least this one doesn't creep up to her crotch. And I don't think Keith's hand is on her belly - I think it's on her hip. Not a noticeable baby bump for 7 months preg now is it? Oh and Keith? That plaid is as hideous as your wife's fake smile and hair.

maclen said...

Cj, as the recent photo of kidman that Urban Myths posted on the home page...titled, "She's due in July! Of 2008!...Taken in 2006"... she's looked far more "pregnant" in the past. She could easily use her massive yoga training to "pose" for the cameras... or simply stick out her "aussie pouch". By the eariest documented date, she is maybe 3 months at most... and would then be due in about Sept. If true, of course, that would shatter the explanaition for the implants of pre oct 07... and you are right CJ, her boobs are the only noticable growth on kidman... convienently enough.

banbotox said...

I agree maclen, each time I see photos of kidman that bump gets smaller and so I second the bump watch "over." Wait..maybe she's just getting taller?

IMO-they looked ridiculous tonight. kidman wears that "you'll find me in the dark" red again and Keith looks like he is wearing his father's suit.

Oh and as for the posed photos-hand on belly, foreheads touching...YAWN!

CJ said...

Don't forget maclen, IF she's due in Sept then she can't do the musical movie - what is it? Nine?

And if Keith thinks 3 months is "very pregnant" he has a RUDE awakening coming up very quickly.

woriedmonkey said...

oh my gourd,

just had a gander at the CMT awards pix.... first of all; What is NK wearing..... her bump looks totally odd.... there's a weird lump on her side and from the front the shape of the bump is like no bump I have ever seen before. But then,Keith has his hand on her belly and I KNOW he would not decieve the public by pretending there's a child inside when there is none. But her bump looks soooooo fake.

Secondly, why is NK standing solo for the paps at Keith's event....

otherwise he does looks happy.

PS Her fake extensions are gross as is the hair close to her scalp .

Keith , on the other hand looks great even in the
designer get-up... If he is truly happy with her, so be it... ( I mean he did get the somewhat overstated Nicole tattoo) but I still find it hard to believe. At leats she finally showed up for something.

As for the blog about NK having a baby registry in Spring of 2007 at le petittresor,,,,, if she really did have one I wouldn't be surprised if she had at least one early miscarriage. My close friend went for IVF treatments and had 6 ! miscarriages before finally giving up.I think this also explains her bloated prior bump sighting... hormones will do that !

CJ said...

"But then,Keith has his hand on her belly and I KNOW he would not deceive the public by pretending there's a child inside when there is none."

I refer you back to Thanksgiving 2005. Paps took a pic of Keith's hand on Nic's belly while talking to the parents starting the speculation that 1. they were engaged or at least dating (though they were quiet/denying it) 2. they were preg. So, either they were not preg in late 2005 or she miscarried. I'm still not so sure the rumors she was preg at the wedding were false. She had a bigger bump in June 2006 than she does now.

"I agree maclen, each time I see photos of kidman that bump gets smaller and so I second the bump watch "over." Wait..maybe she's just getting taller?"

Yeah, isnt that funny? She just grew taller, just like her hair grew about 4-6 inches from this mornings x17 photos... (its called hair extensions, kidmaniacs)

As for the news of the her next role... nine?... (or was it the valerie plame biopic?) just another rumored story to feed her publicity addiction? A film role with the great judi dench... too tempting to pass up. Nothing is as it appears with kidman.

TamiKay38 said...

And ... it's amazing what a good push-up bra will do, huh? Even her "girls" are taller than Keith tonight!

BTW, I just finished watching the show, and it doesn't look like they were even in the audience long enough for Keith's ONE category to be announced. Of course, he lost, but apparently he thought he was going to anyway 'cuz it appears that they were AWOL by that time. No other quick shots of the couple beyond that one early on in the show where they were sitting by Kenny Chesney. Perhaps her bump deflated a little too much or shifted up into her bra and she made Keith leave so they could fix it. 'quick, slave, let's get outta here before someone looks at me and sees my suit is out of whack!'

maclen said...

Yeah tamikay38, I mentioned that braided or woven design down the front of her dress... its to attempt to give an optical illusion of a noticable bump... where none obviously exists. So, as soon as the orb performed, and sat for a few cutsie pie self consious photo ops with kidman in their seats and then left before his category, his one and only nom was announced... and he lost? Yeah, thats the story of the orbs life. LOSER! I'll go on record now and confidently predict that next year he get no noms at this award show.

woriedmonkey said...

That's wierd Tamikay38.... just went to look at your link and the item was pulled from the colection. What gives ??? and what was in the picture ??
thanks

TamiKay38 said...

isitoveryet, weren't you the one who said that Sherlock Holmes suit would be out of place? Looks like maybe KUNK DOES read this blog ... hahahahahahahaha! Really, though, blech! :-( what was he thinking, showing up in a plaid suit? AND WITH A CHAIN??????? Oh, I think the fashion police are gonna have a LOT to say about this outfit! I'm really sad, though, 'cuz he used to be really hip. Now, he's being "led by the hip" (or something close to it!). Whatcha wanna bet that SHE made him wear this ridiculous outfit so she could outshine him once again? (I hafta admit ... she did look good tonight, in a frozen sort of way.)

TamiKay38 said...

worriedmoney, go to gettyimages.com/editorial/entertainment, then click on 2008 CMT Awards-Red Carpet. There's 147 images in that particular group. It's the last group on the 4th row down.

THe particular pic I'm talking about is on page 2 of the photos, the first pic on the 8th row down. It's a close-up that includes her stomach, and it doesn't look like she's pregnant AT ALL. Now, I've seen some other pictures on NKU where Keith's got his hand on her tummy and she does look pregnant, that's why I made the comment about her bump getting pushed up into her bra. It looks like in one picture that she's thin as a rail and the next pic she's thick in the middle. IMO, I think she's got a balloon stuck under her dress! Go figure!!

Imahick said...

Three years ago, he'd have been nominated in four categories and would have won at least two of them. His fans were a force to be reckoned with. Sadly, the "force of the monkey" is greatly reduced these days. But I'm sure it isn't a reflection of the decline in his career. Nope...I'm sure that can't possibly be it.

He did a lovely job painting her toe nails for the red carpet. Where ever did he find that shade of nail polish to match her gown? Great job, there Keith. Didn't I read somewhere that he used to be quite the musician?

I liked her dress. I thought it was very beautiful...maybe a bit overdone for the CMT awards, mind you. But her face is just so fake looking. Her lips are a spectacular size, now. Quite impressive ... that's for sure. But ... where's the bump? Honestly ... where is this baby? If she's faking it, surely she can afford a better rubber belly than that?

As far as Keith goes ... he used to be a fashion leader at these award shows. Tell me, where did he get my father's old suit? I was sure we donated it to the clothing bank.

Well, she finally got a picture they can use to promote the child inside. So sad that slouching and pushing out her belly she still looks inches taller than Keith. How safe are such high heels for a "7 month" preg woman?

realitycheck said...

cj, ask Cate Blanchett. She wore high heels to the Oscars this year.

Anyone who would try and fake a pregnancy by wearing a prosthetic underneath that kind of a dress would have to be absolutely insane. Its too form fitting in the front. Something like Angelina's Golden Globes dress would be a better choice to pull the wool over peoples eyes. That way if something slips its easier to hide. Its obvious she's carrying a baby.

Great performance by Keith and B&D tonight...as usual. Raise The Barn has been one of my favorites since my first listen of LPATWCT.

maclen said...

So I'm just doing some late night surfing and I came across this site...

http://seriouslyomg.com/?p=7941

...and if you look at the second pic down especially, kidman does seem have these very strange bulges... it rises up from her sides, just above her hip, and the bulge curves back towards her back. And it just occured to me, that the bulges on her sides are the result of her fanatical workouts. It looks very bizzare... well along with her forhead, eyebrows, lips, etc. Its certainly more noticable than her non-existant bump. It is truly astounding what an obbsessive, highy vain and self absorbed person like kidman is willing to push themselves to do just to try to appear the exact opposite of what they should look like. It almost seems like she actually does not want to look "pregnant", just as he does not want to appear like a 40 yr old, with the wrinkles and laugh lines that those years accumulate. Of course, I know the reason why. But it still does seem to become bizzarely surreal when the efforts seem to grow and expand, till every altered feature becomes pointed out, thus causing them to be placed under "microscopes that magnify the lies"... and that is all kidman is achieving right now, magnifying the lies.

yingyang said...

I was preggo with 3 bebies..
Never had that cinch tight look on the sides. baby's have a way of taking up your whole body, not just that little bump area

I'm sick to death of KU and NK

I am glad they found each other,
Keeps us regular people safe

undecided said...

Okay, Doublewide, about the suit...

You win. It's hideous.

White Trash said...

I think it's the best she's looked in eons. She looked much more natural to me (except for the lips) than she has in the past. I thought Keith looked handsomely dapper, loved the vest and slacks things going on...dressy, but not!
I was rather surprised she wore a gown, but she worn one last year too, that ugly hideous purple artsy-fartsy thing last year was a mess. I thought the highlight of the show was Keith's performance with Brooks and Dunn, but loved his performance last year with Better Life.

lightsourceyoga said...

Thank you all for the warm welcome!! I have read this for so long, I feel as though I know you.
Maclean I couldn't agree with you more, about Keith changing one addiction for another. It is well known, that people with addictive personalities are well warned in rehab to be careful not to substitute one addiction for another. He is addicted to her. She is just as destructive to him as any drug or alcohol. She has slowly destroyed his personality, his sense of humor, his creative gift, his music, his reltionahip with fans, I could go on, but she has acted as his drug, eroding his very being, just the same as drugs and alcohol would have eventually done. Yet he keeps going back for more. He has given in to her every demand, every whim and every scheme--primarily this strange pregnancy! I was shccked to see her "pregnancy" in pictures from the CMA's last night....this woman is due in July? I don't think so, there is a REAL baby in there, I don't think so. She is terribly vain, a surrogate would have been the answer for her, along with pads for public appearances....she needs to do her homework and get one that is at least consistent with the due date.

doublewide said...

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

thank you undecided. i've been trying to find something good about the suit, and it is awful right down to the bottoms which are way too narrow. his feet are too large for such narrow cuffs, even if they are coming back in style.

and i will give you this. NK looks nice and at least she's not in a see thru dress.

isitoveryet said...

cj - they look like a mommy with her little boy, and the boy is trying to feel for a heart beat!

His outfit was so bad - so out of place. Not enough bad words to describe it! Poor Oompa Loompa!

notachance said...

A) Whoever said that men with big feet can't wear skinny leg pants? And Keith doesn't have giant feet for his size. That said - I thought he looked good, but not quite appropriate for the event. The chain didn't dress it down enough.

B) I thought NK looked pretty good. That dress was a good color for her - and sorry gals, but she does look pregnant. Nothing fake about it.

And I don't think they ruined anything for any other artist. The newness of them is gone now in Nashville.

isitoveryet said...

notachance - I have to respectfully disagree. Did you watch the red carpet? Interviews with other artists were being interrupted with showing the entrance of the Royal couple. I didn't notice them doing that to this extent for anybody else that walked the red carpet. Therefore, it took away from that artist's interview at that moment.

maclen said...

Yes lightsourceyoga, the devotees who proclaim they must be oh so happy because they are smiling and laughing at the awards show last night, (they are posing for the camera folks)... then claim that the paps unposed and sometimes unbenown snaps of a awkward or miserable looking urban at kidmans planned and unplanned photo ops is no indication of what they're "marital relationship status" may really be. But then I dont really give a damn what the emotional or mental state of their cooing and gawking worshippers is anyways... there just doesnt seem to be anything normal or genuine, anything unforced, pre arainged and not awkward about these two. But again, you just have to realize that were talking about a addict/alcoholic with dependency issues and the vain, self absorbed, self aggrandizing, hasbeen and failed celeb.

doublewide said...

i respectfully disagree about keith's feet! IMO, they're a little long for his height. the small pants at the bottom accentuated it.

seems like NK's bump ought to be bigger if she's due in july....but whatever....

couldn't have said it better maclen

notachance said...

I watched the CMT red carpet, and what I saw was the Royal Couple entering but no one's interview being stopped or otherwise being sidelined for them. I also saw during other interviews other people entering as well. CMT did an excellent job of NOT making it about them.

isitoveryet said...

So what does everybody think of Kidman not participating in the CMT interview with Lance? They showed her doing interviews with other reporters on the red carpet.

maclen said...

Yes, doublewide, they have so many issues that can be discussed... and are discussed... seems urban must of got wind from this board of how he was forced by kidman to wear the black tie... "tom cruise' suits... that he then decided to go for a different look last night... yeah those plaid, high rising "rodney dangerfield" pants he wore... he was all set to officate at the old folks senior citizen center meeting... must be why they left the show early.

isitoveryet said...

Its pretty clear kidman only bothers with the "foreign" press... her career in the US is over, so why bother... she has to cowtow to those french and italian and aussie press in a vain attempt to keep whats left of her dwindling career from sinking as well.
