For a few brief hours last week it was if we were back in 2005 and we were watching the continued rise of Keith Urban. If the rumors are true about medication for the back and last week’s PR are any indication, I, for one, prefer the slightly less together Mr. Urban. I have been full of Keith lust - something that hasn't happened for this writer since November 16, 2005, when the Boston pictures of Kidman and Keith first appeared on People.com.
Keith lust? Shall I define that to those of you who arrived after Kidman came on the scene? The man is very sexy. He would use that sexuality on stage, in interviews and when meeting his fans. Yes, part of it was staged, but a lot of it wasn't. The man oozed sex. And being a warm-blooded person, you responded to that. Seeing him strut into the rehearsals for Fashion Rocks you can see it again, just the way he carries himself and shows a hint of tease. On stage for the NFL concert he had it on display flirting with a make-up girl and looking right at members of the audience. It has been awhile since he has been that way and it has been missed.
What do we attribute this to? It couldn't be medication alone; perhaps being away from the middle-aged anchor known as his wife has helped. She has literally sucked any sexiness out of him by making him look flabby and dorky. You think I am kidding? Look at the photo from the awards in London on Monday evening and compare it to the one at Fashion Rocks. He looks like a bored little banker and she looks like Dr. Fix-Me-Up has paid an extended visit. Keith may have been blunting his nature from coming out, but why? Because Kidman is jealous of any success he has. Let’s face it; of the two of them he is currently more successful and more popular. Either way it was nice to see Keith Urban back, even if it was for a very short time. Let’s just celebrate that he can get it back; we all know when this whole thing is over he will be back to normal - the man who is in London is anything but normal.
