Timing is Everything!

While Ms. Kidman was having lunch with her dear, dear Nashville buddies, the press release for upcoming shows for the Grand Ole Opry was released. If you look at the line up, nowhere does it say Keith Urban is playing the Opry Tuesday evening.

By Monday it was all over the place, and Keith's web site had ticket information. Interesting, wasn't it? Why not publish it ahead of time? Why not let more people attend? Or was this even about playing the Opry? It seems that by Friday of this week a story was about to hit the newsstands in the National Enquirer that would blow the facade apart. You know the facade? The “we are just simple folks who love Nashville and love to go to the little restaurants and hobnob with the locals”.

According to the article Keith and Kidman were in a restaurant in Crossville, TN on May 5th. Well, not really in a restaurant. They strolled in to place an order to go. Only it seems, Kidman didn't to eat the restaurant’s food. The article goes into great detail about what happened. Needless to say, Our Nic was in fine form, and after Keith told her to keep her voice down, she stormed out. Fine incident over, right? No. She continued the rant in the parking lot. She wanted to eat in privacy, everyone was staring at her in the restaurant, she allegedly yelled. Keith followed her out and at some point tired of her and in his frustration he got in the car to leave. He had forgotten his order. The manager brought it out to him and picked up the check. They left without even a thank you.

One week and one day later. Keith Urban performs one of the stupidest songs of his career on stage at the Opry. Full of devotion, love and faithfulness the song was said by many to be the equivalent of cotton candy and many were shocked at how awful it was. He also performed an “over the top” version of Making Memories of Us, a song he used to sing for the fans but it got associated with Kidman when she supposedly asked Keith to sing it at their wedding. Are we reaching to say there seems to be some pieces to a puzzle, but no reason as to why there would be a puzzle?

That mystery was solved on the newsstands today with the newest issue of the National Enquirer. There is the story of the melt down on page three. Generally when a story is going to run someone doing PR will get a copy for a reaction, or they will be told that a story is running in a certain issue. So that is why Keith sang to ode to the queen. That is why he made his fans suffer through another worthless performance dedicated to the queen. Maybe it’s because she is pregnant and he didn't want her upset or maybe he likes the $600K he supposedly is getting every year to stay with her. In any case, Keith calls her his ‘sun’; just remember that if you get too close to the sun you disappear. For Keith, that seems to have already happened

You are reaching Umyths. So Keith decides to sing MMOU because of an Enquirer story. Never mind the fact it was a hit for him. Never mind it's a fan favorite STILL. Never mind it's a damn good song. The way you writers here connect things is absolutely hilarious.

Yeah, this fits into the inevitable collapse of a manufactured relationship, the start of drip after drip of these stories until it's put out of its misery in all it's bitter and publicly humiliating glory... just like kidman's first marriage. I'd say kidman is at work on her next PR ploy, a rehash of her pity pandering of the public's sympathy... since her painfully self consious and pitifully empty magazine personal revelations and marriage couldnt keep her career from failing... and now that the "pregnancy" is fizzling in the face of a ever growing list of far more interesting and far more impressive celeb's expecting... the countdown to the end of this ridiculous facade has finally begun.

If you listen closely, you can hear a faint ticking sound...

Well, we all know the National Enquirer is a well know TRUE source of information - eh?

I think the picture on your site from your blog May 8th - was from the Cracker Barrel on May 5th..

Seems that the story can be refuted by your photo?? There was no take out - they were sitting at a table with food and drinks?? Things that make you want to go hmmmm...


As for the performance at the Opry.. it was wonderful.. saw it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears. The new song was not awful... it was beautiful.

Doesn't most music come from experiences in life or feelings at the time of writing? Most people can relate with music in this manner? I think the blogger tries to read more into this performance than a gypsy reading tea leaves.

I think the prescription for this blog is take two grains of salt for those sour grapes and call me in the morning...

notachance said...

I don't buy that he would stay for a paltry $600k a year. Paleeze, the man makes millions in his own right, he doesn't need her $600k for anything.

So, what I want to know is - did the person who took that under the table pic have the same story? And what were they doing in Crossville? It's not like it's right around the corner from the estate. This story sounds made up. Think I'll have to get in touch with my friends that live in Crossville.

The only thing I do agree with is that new song sucks.

notachance said...

Oh, and one other thing - the picture taken was of them at a table, most people getting a to-go order do not sit a table with food & drink before them.

woriedmonkey said...

oh....I think we need to call in Oliver Stone to film the KUNK saga such are the conspiracy theories.

I'm going with the lone cheeseburger theory.

SettleDown said...

2 different stories I think.

The under the table photo says it was taken at the Brentwood CB. The NE story says Crossville.

I doubt the NE would state the actual location unless it's got some truth to it because a simple phone call to that location could verify.

Maybe he ordered takeout at the Crossville location because after being forced to sit and pretend to eat in Brentwood she refused to ever be seen at such a lowly place again.

Looks like he just wanted food and was willing to accommodate her to the point of getting it to go, but that wasn't good enough was it?


He obviously can do nothing right - after all, Brad gave Angie TWINS!! Dammit Keith, looks like you failed your BBP yet again.

doublewide said...

heard the song....it did suck. sounded alot like some of his unrecorded songs, but not nearly as good as some of them.

IMO the NE is much more reliable for the truth than People mag, which has just become an extention of the PR crap the celebrities what the public to know.

in any case, whether true or false, we all know the CB is waaaaay beneath the Queen. i laughed myself silly just picturing her in one! hee

Lisa said...

Just for the record, even if it wouldnt really pertain to the CB pic applied to this blog, some places to eat will actually seat you while you wait on your order, even go as far as to ask if you would like something to drink or offer bread or whatever they place on the tables. And being NK who thinks she automaticaly deserves 5 star everywhere she goes, I could see her as someone that would soak up as much as she could get. I think the type of to-go order WM is speaking of is one you call in, which I think he should start doing IF HE CANT TRUST HER TO BEHAVE HERSELF IN A PUBLIC PLACE!!!

Apparently there are too many ppl riding the link to read the article. I cannot get to it myself. If anyone chooses to help out here my email... GentleViolet@msn.com

I think keith is seeing The Delicate Swan as the Rabid Goose she really is!!

Thank you to those who have stepped forward. Your kindness is appreciated.

The Brentwood picture was dated two days after the Crossville story. Two separate occasions. Which makes me question the validity of Enquirer's story to begin with. UMyths must have missed that. How convenient...

The skepti-haters have been hearing a ticking sound since June 25, 2006. No wonder they're so cranky!

wastedemotion said...

Personally I think they did go on two occasions (based off what I've read and also heard from people in the area)...one when their picture was snapped and she clearly looks pissed to be eating there, and then I'd put money on Keith (being a man after all) wanting to go back a few days later (cause it was so good....whose man doesnt do this) and she was pissed cause she had expressed her disapproval of the place a few days prior, he decided to get it to go, but she was still pissed he even went there and threw a hissy fit because after all not only is she a diva she's a pregnant diva.

wastedemotion said...

oh yeah and the song SUCKS with a capitol S...worst song he's EVER performed in my opinion.....it does sound A LOT like his older stuff but some of that stuff should be dug up and used, Sunshine (if old) should have stayed burried. Please God do not let the next album sound like that crap it was so beneth him and the talent he is capable...it sounded like a poem a kid would write in
2nd grade.

hoho said...

RC I know that you just luerve Nicole and Keith together but, the reality is, some of us don't and we don't have to. I still love Keith and support his career whole heartedly - I just don't like his wife because of the kind of person she is. I have friends that I don't really dig their hubbies either. You don't have to like everyone. Keith doesn't give a rats ass what we think or say about Nicole. So, why do you?

Personally as far as the whole CB thing goes. I do think that CB is beneath her standards and I doubt for one second she puts anything in her mouth - at all. I think she sucks on teabags for sustenance !!

"I think I better go and see someone
And talk about what I've become,
It's beginning to get the best of me.

...it's gotta hold of me and won't let go,
it's on the verge of being out of control
it's got me climbing the walls and walking the floor

I'm addicted to two blue eyes
Intoxicated by you everynight,
I can feel you running through my blood,
I'm under the influence of love

Baby what am I supposed to do.
I've become dependent on you......

I'm addicted to two blue eyes ".... etc

keith circa 2000... a gorgeous FAR superior song and oddly prophetic though probably not in the way he intended.

Just insert NK for love

banbotox said...

And while your at it WM change the word "intoxicated" to brainwashed or drugged, either one works there.

I agree with you 100%! I bet after it was released that Angie was with twin his BBP went ballistic and blamed Keith. She blames Keith for everything. I also think she tells him on a daily basis that he is a loser and would be nothing if it wasn't for her.

Actually, the skepti-haters have been hearing a ticking sound since July-2005. With them blaming NK for seemingly everything, I'm surprised they haven't blamed her for global warming, the Burmese cyclone and that massive earthquake in China.

Tick.. tick..tick...

Come on now dear, only you would think she's powerful enough to control those kinds of disasters.

I don't think that of her at all. But the "loonies" on this blog do tend to blame her for EVERYTHING!

Casse Role said...

Well damn. I was thinking she wouldn't say it in public for all of CRACKER B. to hear but she did!
Then the manager follows them out with their order and gives it to them free?! Come on Nicole. Use your manners. She (or Keith on her behalf) should have apologized and at least said Thank you.

She probably went home (wherever that is)and had her Chef flown in for an hour to cook her some veggies and whatever she is accustomed to. I wonder if she THEN said Thank you?

What next? A tantrum at Target?
