Bits and Pieces...

Nicole Kidman showed up for the east coast version of G’DayUSA on Friday. We waited with great anticipation to see if Baz would have his muse there. But what does it mean if Kidman didn't show? She did and why she did has little to do with Baz and more with getting in People or any of the other tabloids. It seems that no one is that interested in Kidman anymore, so let’s hope that doesn't rub off on Keith. Kidman looked like she wanted to be on a tabloid as she was there with fake hair, slutty dress and draped all over Baz as if she were his towel. Interesting her husband wasn't there, nor was she wearing her rings on Saturday when she was spotted shopping in New York City.

Speaking of Keith, he was in Memphis last week at a St. Jude’s event. It's great he can go do stuff for a worthy charity. His performance, however, was greatly lacking and a few that were there felt he wasn't prepared to perform. I saw a few clips; I don't think that he wasn't prepared; he just needed to rehearse. Keith, know what key your song is in and that would be a good start. I did like the references to his former life when he lamented how he got drunk in the hotel while visiting the city in the past.

While Keith was in Memphis, Kidman was having a fine old time in Nashville dancing and partying at a club. There have been a lot of rumors out there about the degree to which Mrs. Urban was enjoying herself, but needless to say Nicole feels free to get her groove on in Nashville. Too bad that she was more of a sight, than a sightseer. How is that hometown vibe working for you, hon?

The big question will be whether the Kidmans will be going to Rome for Nicole’s shoot for Nine? It seems she has about two weeks of work over there and while that could be accomplished without Keith and the little girl, TomKat has been all over the press in the last few days. Lots of happy, kissy couple pictures. I am sure as she looks through the cloud of her own cigarette smoke to see her laptop, Kidman is already ordering Keith something stupid to wear and plotting her own loved up couple pictures. It is too bad its winter in Italy because we need more shots of Kidman in a bikini.

Will we get the happy couple with the ‘death grip hand holding’ and the pure bliss of their love? Maybe, maybe not; rumors are out there that Keith is under big pressure to get the CD out by March 31. Seems we will be getting Defying Gravity on time. I wonder if Kidman will fly in to see Keith while he is working. Don't bet the farm on it. It seems it’s better for her to talk about her marriage than actually participate in it.

This blog is ridiculous. First you are going to criticize Keith for making a slip up that many musicians I've seen onstage do, and will continue to do. One I saw placed the capo on the wrong fret, started, it became ridiculously high and he didn't care. He just started from the beginning. Keith has always had a sense of humor mishaps like that. Why it bothers you is probably due to the fact that you have to find something to pick apart in his performance. Randy O didn't care, he said "Just go with it". And KU was absolutely jamming before and after his mistake. The audience just loved it and his personality just shined through. Then you go onto say you liked his drunk story, as if that was the most enjoyable part of the performance, any reference to his past before NK. How about mentioning the audience was into it even if you weren't. Or the performance of "Urban's On Country Radio". Perhaps it's because it's harder to say KU's career is fading away when a country music legend writes a flattering song about you.

And while the skeptics keep saying Nicole was out partying like it was 1999, it was an anniversary for a club. Who knows what personal connections she has to that place but the woman is just screwed for doing anything. She's at the club, she's a partying whore. She's with Keith at the event, she's trying to hog the spotlight. She's not seen out, she's hiding away because you think her career is in the toilet.

It's just more proof this blog reaches and reaches, changes it's opinion every 5 seconds on what the real deal is with KUNK.


And why not provide links to these performances? Let everyone see them for themselves!

Well, I certainly got a big kick out of bozo's appearence at the g'day gala...but it seems the bazz-ster got most of the press, whining on about how we all should "Leave kidman alone!!" I certainly doubt kidman had any desire to show up...jackman took the wise decision of pulling out...( he presented to the bazz in LA already...probably figured kidman should have to appear and not try to run away from baz or the film or the bad buzz!) The orb at this point should take the opportunity to pry himself from any extra "career salvaging" for kidman's benefit...but I'm not holding my breathe. I get the sense kidman is in a pouting and wound licking mood...(per bazz) and will continue to hide out..basically. Hopefully I will be able to enjoy at least watching the oscars and coverage, without having her pop up in another hideous gown, another new dose of paralyzed face...and bee sting lips. Although on the other hand it would give me more ammo for this blog...I've been lagging a little lately...kidman hasnt been doing much lately...

Baz is now in the firing line, after asking everyone to lay off Gran. He has received his own raspberry award now:

See, if wasn't just us guys who thought the film stank.

urbanfan said...

I haven't heard the rumors about "what degree of fun" Nicold was having at the night club in Nashville.

Will someone please humor me?

Choice said...

Sounds like it was a wild evening. Don't tell me she was caught snogging someone while Keith was away!

Lisa said...

Was it the same type of mischief LeAnn Rhimes is a regular of? I know there are some clubs they can get away with a whole lot!! I still dont know how they work that out...or live like noone is watching.

urbanfan said...

I don't know what type of mischeif Lee ann Rhimes is a regular of. I am not a fan.


Could someone please tell me?

urbanfan said...

I meant mischief.......ha ha

Sorry!

cricket said...

well I hope she stays away for at least two weeks. The less she is around the better the chance that Keith will be able to put out some decent music this time.

notachance said...

This is the first I've heard of LeAnn being connected in a slummy way to KU.... spill there Lisa.

Where are the pictures of her shopping in NYC without her wedding ring?

Oh boy, here we go...

Oscars’ Secret Ratings Weapon: the Team Behind Australia

..if this turns out to be true...it looks like america's nightmare is not over. The bazz, the perennial martyr and perveyor or woe...it seems is not content to cry over the mediocre flop that was Australia...but is also intent on taking part of the blame for the oscar's yearly viewers decline. And does this perhaps pull the happless and morose kidman out of retirement yet again for a unwelcomed and not at all realistically asked for reunion of this aussie mediocre team of 3 responsible for the tedium that was the non epic Australia? The bazz would just do better to head to Vegas and pollute the garish and overblown air of humid desert with his vapid and hamhocked attempts at overly ponderous reenactments of tinsel town long since extinct.

Hi guys,
Maclen. I noticed Lainey has an interesting post today speculating on Nicole's disappearance act in the past few weeks. Possible cheek implants in preparation for the Oscars. Have to say though she didn't look like she had been in surgery based on those NY shots the other day.

doublewide said...

i'll have to say i've never seen keith sing as high as he did at the benefit....just threw that head back and belted it....sounded way better in the correct key. maybe he should have rehearsed a bit more. word has it he's working ALOT on that new cd.....we can only hope and pray we'll get some decent new music

and oh please....no bozo at the oscars.....please - new cheek implants or not......have mercy!

maclen said...

Hey doublewide, good to see you back! How's everything? Well, an "aussie" Oscar fiasco would be good for laughs. It seems people just dont learn. As for kidman, she's placed herself out there constantly to where she is now a universal target for the pundits to pick apart. As for the lainey piece, choice, only time will eventually tell as to any sort of drastic work done on her face...surely the lip job would be more than expected...but the cheek inplants is a wait and see..so we'll see. And that reminds me of a magazine article I saw posted by the NKUser fansies...

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.invisionzone.com/index.php?s=4458c642da83b6589e4b4bc7e9920e29&showtopic=11250

...its a photo piece of kidman through the years in InStyle magazine...which actually, thanks to the NKUsers posting of the image you can almost track the work she has had done to her face. For example...looking at the photos marked below by year... you can clearly see that she had her nose done (rhinoplasty)...to her nose sometime between 1993 and 1999... botox between 2003 and 2004...and collogen lip injections shortly after between 2004 and 2006. As for the lainey mention of cheek implants...it seems her cheeks look to have had a pick me up already in the 2004 pic. Yeah kidmans face is like a freaking archeological dig...the bones will tell the tale!

maclen said: Yeah kidmans face is like a freaking archeological dig...


hahahahahaha
I certainly hope no one bothers to dig it up...there is no monetary or historical value in that face and we have seen enough unedited photos to last many lifetimes.

urbanfan said...

Will someone please say what the "rumors" are?

notachance said...

Well urbanfan, Skeptics like to throw shit out there as "rumour" and then don't ever say what the rumour is.

doublewide said...

hey maclen.....i'm doing ok. i try to keep up with the reading but just don't post much at the moment. things have just GOT to get better....

loved your archeological dig comment........hee

Lisa said...

Sorry, I HAVE been MIA, appendix issues. Word has alwaysbeen in Nashville that it doesnt bother LeeAnn to have a husband that swings both ways because she does too. Whatever, that's her perogative and we all have gay friends. They are either open about it or not. When I was out with a close friend one night in Nash, I DID see LeeAnn with a big ole *ahem* leaf cropped tee shirt. She's wilder than most ppl think. If you ever wonder why she and Keith have always got along so well, you dont have to go far.

LeeAnn is in his "supportive Nashville family" so I was just assuming when there was a rumor to NK's antics at a club, it made me think of my night with more of LeeAnn than anyone would prolly ever want to see or hear.

urbanfan said...

That is what I thought you meant Lisa. I had just never heard it before, but it would not surprise me in the least. I'm sure there is alot more to that marriage than probably any of us could ever imagine.

I hope your appendix issue are better.

Thank you.

"hey maclen.....i'm doing ok. i try to keep up with the reading but just don't post much at the moment. things have just GOT to get better...."

Glad to hear your doing ok, doublewide...yeah, after Australia flopped, kidman was hiding out in tenn. As to whether she is going to "retire" from the biz will need to wait til her current job is done...seems she is in Rome filming for Nine. And of course JJ and GG conviently have all the pics...(no doubt a heads up from inept team kidman!)

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2009/01/28/nicole-kidman-nine-movie/

...and jsut to follow up on the lainey piece about swollen lips and cheeks...her lips are her usually already puffy mess...and I'd rule out cheek inplants at this moment according to the pics...her cheeks do look weird...the pic where she in in her horrific black pap look, as she is in the light of day, her cheeks look pretty ragged...and in the clear facial pic of her onset, riding in the car with day-lewis...she does seem to have a funny "chipmunk" look...and if you look at close ups of around her mouth she looks to have some added ridges. So I certainly would say she probably got botox injections in her laugh lines to shore up her cheeks...which would exlain the lainey rumors of puffy cheeks and would explain her funny "chipmunk" cheeks. And of course that will just be another target for critics to point out when the movie comes out in Nov... because, already I'm predicting that the happless team of kidman-wienstein will doom this film... kidman's presence in this film will just drag the film into a cartoonish debacle. Which is of course, box office failure and another awards dud for kidman..she is beyond redemption.

maclen said...

...ps..

...oh yes, another point about the onset pics of these "reshoots"... when was the last time kidman was in a movie where she HASN'T worn a wig? Seems kidman can no longer be in a film where she hasnt been made up with botox... lip injections or appeared in her own ratty hair. It has even come down to where she cannot appear in a film without "CGI" touch ups to her emotional expressions as well...I would suggest they simply animated her roles in films...it would at this point just make the whole process easier!

What was the date of the St. Judes event?

Choice said...

Why didn't I know til today that Nicole was going to be in the sequel to LARS AND THE REAL GIRL? Jeez Louise:

those pictures from Rome are scary

I don't know what rumors the Umyths blog writer had heard
but the one I heard was that she was sitting with her "driver" and a friend (code word for paid staff)
and was looking to be noticed.

A440 said...

Okay, Lisa, the reference to a "leaf cropped tee shirt" flew right by me. Would you translate?
