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?
