Kidman Urban PDA's and Twitters

After a week of almost nonstop good publicity for Keith Urban we should have known. Nicole Kidman can't allow her husband to have any positive press on his own, so here come the public displays of affection. The setting was a sporting event, not as popular as NASCAR, where her one true love was over the weekend, but the US Open; it does have national television coverage just like the Australian Open does, so on come the cuddle shots. They were the only two people in the room, or the stadium. Kidman has been at the Open many, many times before but when you pay for companionship you should get your monies worth, so pucker up Keith.

And speaking of the pucker, where did that woman learn to kiss? She has made enough movies with a lot of wonderful leading men, why hasn't she learned? She went for Keith with those two plumped up lips like she was going to suck a lemon. I have seen Tom Cruise kiss in films for going on twenty five years, he knows how to kiss. I have seen Keith Urban in private settings with past girlfriends; he, too, has that down pat. Please someone spare the world this particular act from this woman. It just seems so forced, just like her acting.

Which leads us to another question: Why now with the PDA? Keith has had a lot of good press beyond being Keith Kidman. Could it be because test screenings for Nine happened recently in LA and while most reviews were glowing, the two biggest criticisms were about the performances of Kate Hudson and Nicole Kidman? Does she have a little insecurity about her sexuality? It has been twelve years since she bared all in the Blue Room on stage. Does she have some doubts about herself? She has been married to two of the sexiest men in the world, yet here she is acting like she is a fifteen year old. Is there something going on in her marriage? If you look at pictures of the couple leaving her apartment on September 8, they certainly aren't the loved up couple, but two people who look lost and sad. I would bet money there is a lot more going on than we are allowed to see.

Finally, our wise readers certainly know better than to believe all the twittering going on with the loved up couple. Kidman was supposed at a car show in Tacoma... haha.. when Keith was in Portland, Oregon. Then she was photographed in NYC... then Keith was on a flight back to Nashville after the Saturday Tacoma show, when he has a show in Spokane on Monday...and the family was also at a Farmer's Market in LA, oh no, it was Nashville... hmmmmm. Obviously the publicist is working overtime, or on Kidman PR overload. Hmmmmmmmmmmm....

Yes, that was quite some run of photo ops they just spun out there this past week. About 5 different settings in about 4 days. While kidman gears up for a film coming out next month...cletus...who seems to be more than willing to play up the "canoodling" at the Open himself...attempts to position himself with the CMA voters. And it seems cletus, along with fellow good ol' boy paisley, was just "lucky" enough to get another nod at the CMA's after an "error"...an apparent "ommision" in the "event" catagory gets them simply "placed" along side the other 5 already nommed acts!

Brad Paisley and Keith Urban Nomination for CMA Musical Event of the Year Added to List of Finalists for 2009 CMA Awards

...it seems the "guys" just can get enough noms to suit the CMA committee! So just as inept team kidman has driven her career to the ground, seems the orb's declining career will not exit the scene without a little establishment "help" or a perfectly timed "benefit" anouncement!

maclen said...

...ps...

..just watching Leno's new show at 10 pm...he just joked about the kanye west/taylor swift incident at the VMA's. Boy, wouldnt it be kind of ironic for cletus if this little incident ends up giving swift a little bump in "sympathy" votes for "entertainer" at the cma's and she won? Hey, stranger things have happened of course...like kidman winning an oscar!

Hello Urban Myths. Not only is Nine about to come out, but Rabbit Hole not long after. As usual, her PR machine needs to go into overdrive and the lovey dovey stuff with Keith Baby needs to occur in public - all in an attempt to generate new fans for Lady Kidman. To generate potential film-goers who might fall for her dismal acting. Let's remember that Nicole and her agent are deep down worried that these new films could once again spell FLOPS. Can she survive any more flops? Can her country marriage survive any more flops? Does Keith want a box office poison latex-face mama on his arm? Or would she stick with him if her career is finally down the toilet? So many questions. Some critics reckon Rabbit Hole may help turn her career around as she portrays a grieving mother. Problem is, the critics haven't seen the film yet, plus they are forgetting she can't act for peanuts. I wish they had just left the original storyline, then she may have had a winner on her hands. Everyone loves a bunny:

Hey choice...it's been a while...been meaning to get back to your blog..

...Interesting, lets take a look at "blatant and obvious photo ops". Last night I read that charlizee theron was out of the film "Danish girl" where she was to costar with kidman...(smart move charize!)...so this morning I see at hollywoodtuna .com...photos of theron at the US Open...

http://www.hollywoodtuna.com/?p=21317
Charlize Theron Likes The Dark Chocolate

...now contrast and compare to the ridiculous kidman/cletus silly camera mugging and juvenile making out for the cameras...you see a tennis match couple, who happen to be celebs...not mugging or playing up to the cameras...boyfriend townsend buys a ice cream and gives his girlfriend a bite of it...pretty average behavior at a public tennis match...in the next photo, charlize is straining to see...the play on court...and not checking up for the jumbotron...next she is having a pretty serious discussion with townsend...and again, they are not waiting to get camera time for their silly antics...and look "average crowd member" theron is actually clapping for the tennis action. This is what it "SHOULD" look like when someone who happens to be a celeb is at a tennis match...watch the tennis action...and not be obviously "scoping out" for cameras to act like a silly attention monger!

Choice said...

Charlize at the tennis too! Hey Maclen, I wonder if she dropped out of the danish girl because she was worried about being cast in a potential flop. Or is it because she is sick of waiting for this film to be made. I mean, how long has danish girl been talked about? Well before Keith arrived on the scene.

maclen said...

well, choice, kidman is offically a "hollywood washout"...made official when Australia fizzled at the box office. And since then, she was supposed to be in the next woody allen flick, but supposedly dropped out due to "scheduling conflicts"... she will be in a feeble 10-15 minute role in the upcoming Nine...(which is now being rumored that the struggling Weinco may delay it's release till next year)...she just finished her own production "produced" $10 mil budgeted film which took only about 3 weeks to make!...(which also took 4 other producers and 2 financers to get made)..and now comes news that "Danish Girl" may be ramping up with news it now has a director...but that charlize theron is "out"...and also, apparently, kidman with another slew of "co-producers" is also going to produce this flick! So, essentially, as a "hollywood washout", kidman is now "self employed! And this film is all kidman could scrap up off the botton of the barrel! Although your may be right, choice, if this film ever makes it to production...theron opting out of this flick reminds me of a few years ago, where kidman was also claiming her Monroe remake "monte carlo" was almost all set, and that she was even "in talks" to get julia roberts to co-star! Yeah that flick fizzled faster than her career! But of course, there is a difference, back then kidman was still considered, laughingly, a "box office force"...and was still getting big budget films and paydays...but now, if she wants to be in a film, she'll need to hustle the money for herself to be in it! And dont forget, Rabbit Hole may have gotten made, but apparently it does not have a distributor...and will be shown at canne hoping someone will "buy" it and release it! I just wonder if Weinco will still be in business at that time to buy it!

Ah, Charlize! The same one who’s so obsessed about her looks that she told reporters:
“Getting pregnant doesn’t excite me, but having kids does. I know I’ll be a mother one day. It’s just that I don’t really want to look like a whale. But I’m sure the idea of something growing inside you is pretty powerful.”

Wow, Charlize, did your mother also “look like a whale” when pregnant with you? Now I can see why that may have zapped you of some brain cells.

Choice: you really should check out Charlize’s boxoffice records before writing something like “I wonder if she dropped out of the danish girl because she was worried about being cast in a potential flop. Or is it because she is sick of waiting for this film to be made. I mean, how long has danish girl been talked about? Well before Keith arrived on the scene.”

“Potential flop”? Charlize’s middle name is “flop”. lmao! Just check out the WORLDWIDE boxoffice returns of her movies since winning an Oscar:
2004: “Head in the Clouds” - $3.5 Million
2005: “North Country” - $25 Million (production budget of $35 Million)
2005: “Aeon Flux” - $52 Million (production budget of $62 Million)
2007: “In the Valley of Elah” - $30 Million (even Tommy Lee Jones’ awards hype could not save this film in the b.o.)
2008: “Sleepwalking” - $0.2 Million (yup, just $204 thousand!)
2008: “Hancock” - $624 Million (ahh finally, saved by the boxoffice “king” Will Smith)
2008: “Battle in Seattle” - $0.9 Million (yup, not even one million)
Then there’s “The Road” which was completed last year and being shopped around the film festivals. It will finally be released in late November of this year after having a tough time finding distributors to pick it up. Get ready for this turkey to bomb. Not even the hunky Viggo Mortensen can save it.


Kidman has been able to open movies on her own with many of them easily pulling in $200 Million or more worldwide. The best that Charlize could do in her entire career was “The Italian Job” which has a worldwide b.o. of $176 Million. Her only other films that grossed over $100 Million worldwide did so because of the star power of the male leads, i.e. Will Smith in the aforementioned “Hancock”, and Keanu Reeves and Al Pacino in “Devil’s Advocate” (worldwide b.o. $153 Million) Ah, did I mention that of all the Wills Smith films released since 2000, “The Legend of Bagger Vance” has the worst worldwide boxoffice returns ($40 Million). His costar in that film was Charlize Flop Theron.

There’s got to be a reason why Charlize has not been in any big budget films in years. Quite plain and simple, she has a lousy boxoffice track record and no studio executive would be dumb enough to take a risk on her. Furthermore, unless her films have superstars as male leads, they're not even being picked up by network TV.

Still want to talk about “potential flop”, Choice? Btw… SO WHAT if you have heard of “Rabbit Hole” since before she met Keith?!? In the years since then, she has met and married Keith, and they have Sunday Rose together. She made “Australia” and “The Golden Compass” and got millions for the films. In between, she filmed “Margot” and “Nine” which required very little of her time. So what if she put “Rabbit Hole” in the back burner! Sounds like she got her priorities straight in trying to BALANCE her career and family.

wow lots of effort there sonora- why I am not sure.....

doesn't the overt PDAs smell funny?
Apparently in Oz there is speculation that something must be off between the two lovebirds for such a show- I think the phrase is professors of publicity go for shots like this when something else is going on.

"Charlize at the tennis too! Hey Maclen, I wonder if she dropped out of the danish girl because she was worried about being cast in a potential flop. Or is it because she is sick of waiting for this film to be made."

Yes, I find it interesting, choice, that just as the news broke that theron was out...that they also just found another director...

http://www.collider.com/2009/09/15/tomas-alfredson-picks-up-and-charlize-theron-dumps-the-danish-girl/

Tomas Alfredson Picks Up and Charlize Theron Dumps THE DANISH GIRL

...for surely a very desperate kidman may be worried that the news of theron "dumping" the "Danish Girl" may endanger this flick...just as the story julia roberts was to "costar" in that aforementioned "monte carlo" remake that never actually materialised...

http://www.cinematical.com/2007/10/09/will-julia-roberts-head-for-monte-carlo/

Will Julia Roberts Head for 'Monte Carlo'?
"Fox spoke with Kidman during the NYFF premiere for Margot at the Wedding (read Ryan's review here) when the actress confirmed Roberts involvement."

So, will theron passing on this flick doom it as well? Who will be found to play opposite kidman? A "jennifer jason lee" as in "margot"...or a "aaron eckhart" as in the upcoming "rabbit hole?" Sure, decent actors, but hardly in the recent vangard of A list stars...for surely, kidman can no longer be considered "A-list!" Mark my words, they find another "journey-man/woman" middling actor on par with the failed kidman... this flick will fade long before it ever see's the light of day or fizzle the first weekend of it's certain "limited release!"

maclen said...

So, another update to my little "Entertainer" nominees swift "previous cd vs. orb "current cd" chart action...well fortunately for orb, swift's previous cd "Taylor Swift" fell one spot from last week...down to #48 from #47...but far more UN-fortunately for cletus', "Defying Gravity" fell 5 spots to #49 from #44. And I'm still wondering if the kanye west incident will give her a bump in cd sales next week, as well as how it may effect "entertainer" votes at the CMA's? We shall see...

Choice said...

Hi Maclen. Remember when Nicole said she was retiring from film after hearing what the cruel, but kind, Aussie critics said about her performance in Australia. She then hid back in Nashville waiting for NINE to start up. To be fair, Hollywood doesn't want over 40's women unless they are Streep, Roberts and maybe Sophia Loren. There is no place left for dismal actors who try to get through roles with frozen botoxed facees.

Senora Melody- I was referring to Danish Girl, not Rabbit Hole. Danish Girl has been discussed as a Kidman project forever it seems, long before Keith arrived. What is so funny about this film is that Kidman will attempt to play a person undergoing a sex change operation and therapy. Can you seriously see her in this role? Even you, her biggest fan, can not surely believe she has the acting credentials to pull this off. Be honest here.

Hey choice, yeah as I recall, she started dropping hints...trying to "threaten" the aussies during the OZ promo that "Australia" may be her last film! Now 9 months later...she's got a film coming out in a few months...a new film in the can...and now the PR aparatus are shilling the start of another! Although, as is surely obvious, she is down to one film a year... and none of them a threat to be commercial success'...Nine is a minor role...and rabbit hole is a paltry indie she had to scrape up for herself...and now apparently another self-generated amateur production...truly a drop from the "epics" and epic paydays she used to get. If anyone even believes she can sustain herself on these weepy, bizzare themed and pretensious oddities...she will just be another hasbeen oddity.

"Nice Urban interview. his fans should enjoy this:

...well, it certainly is a revealing interview...I'm not too surprised by this bit...

"Have they been coming out on the road with you?

Yeah, they've been out a couple of times. And I think, in Canada, that will be the case. Because it's not as easy for me to fly back to Nashville on a day off."


...yes, here cletus confirms that kidman...or the "family" have been to his live gigs "a couple of times!" I certainly never bought the original hype that he was "re-fitting" his tour bus for the "family" to be out on tour with him... so kidman has been out to gigs only "a couple of times! And I do sense a little annoyance in the orb of having to fly back to Nashville..or NYC and "canoodle" for kidman at the US Open... on his "days off" to no doubt be in kidman's very rather inept photo ops...but...Canada will be different, cletus says...well, he thinks anyways!

Imahick said...

NK is in Calgary and will be in Edmonton during the Canadian portion of the tour. They spent yesterday at the Calgary zoo, according to tweets and an announcement by Keith at his show last night. Thanks "baby girl" ... what adult man calls his 42 yr old wife "baby girl" in front of 13,000 people? Seems juvenile to me. But I'm glad she's there and that he can spend some time with Sunday. I sometimes think that baby is away from her parents far too much.

maclen said...

Yes....according to this review...

http://www.ottawacitizen.com/entertainment/Keith+Urban+shows+Saddledome+string+skills/2012114/story.html

"He's got his share of charisma too, making a special connection with 13,000 Calgary fans when he mentioned that he and his wife, famed actress Nicole Kidman – who was apparently backstage – loved the Calgary Zoo, where they hung out on Friday."

...so firstly, cletus and kidman made a trip to the Calgary Zoo just so he can mention it to the Calgary fans and make a "special connection?"...lame...inept teams at work! And again, a photo opportunity at the zoo by kidman and co...and no JJ or GG coverage of the precious moment? Or no coverage by anyone for that matter? Sounds fishy to me...and also apparently, according to this reviewer..."Nicole Kidman – who was apparently backstage..." has not been seen or sighted by anyone in Calgary as of yet...and according to the "twitters" documented over at the NKUsers, the only "twitted sightings" are not actual twitted sightings...but only twits that the orb announced on stage that kidman was there and that they had "visited" the zoo! So, until there is actual "photographic" proof that kidman is in calgary or was at the zoo...this is more than likely simply cletus PR BS...like the BS story of retrofitting his tour bus so the "family" can be on tour with him...to which he has himself admitted in the interview so helpfull posted by kristatla up above that "she has been to only a couple of dates"... an is due to the fact that his cd once again has continued to drop on the charts...(he has been lapped by swift's previous cd!...again) and is looking for some kind of PR push to try to revive interest....but why he continues to believe that kidman can give him that extra PR push is beyond me... because as is plain by the actual facts...his cd's have sold less since hooking up with kidman!

maclen said...

...ps...

...I also wanted to highlight this other seeming cletus "PR BS" review of his show in Calgary...and how it seems the PR ramping up, here as cletus is desperate to sell his cd... more and more shilling kidman to his live gig audience...and in this "CMA nominee" voting season...this review:

http://jam.canoe.ca/Music/Artists/U/Urban_Keith/ConcertReviews/2009/09/19/10995166-sun.html
Saddledome, Calgary - September 18, 2009

"The New Zealand-born, Australia-raised country singer has 16 No. 1 singles, five multi-platinum albums, two Grammys and a busload of country music awards to his name."

...now, a casual reader of that line...16 No. 1 singles"... may be surprised and quite impressed...that the cletus orb is seemingly only one no. 1 hit from tying elvis 17 no. 1 hits of all time! Although a quick check at Wiki shows that the orb has only 10 US hits and 12 canadian hits...I'm not to sure where that "16 no. 1" hits even came from...and if they simply added in a few no. 1's from, I dont know...Siberia or Thailand no 1's...and then, did they add them to the US or Canadian totals? or his Aussie totals...again this review doesnt give a clear clarification of it. But, it has the intended effect required for the much needed PR, doesnt it? Also, I was struck by this line from this "review"..."But judging by the boisterous reaction he received during his Saddledome show last night, you'd think Urban had suddenly turned into Robert Pattinson. Boy, that's some comparison, huh? The cletus is seemingly, a "Teen and Tween dream" after all! And who would have pointed it out, who would have guessed it? (who you may ask? anyone in this blog who ratted out the orb's rather blatant juvenile and poppy attempt at "bubble gum country pop" on Defying Gravity!) SO again I must point out, and question...when has there even been a "negative"...or even a "lukewarm" review of the orbs live gigs...as I'm sure I've mentioned before..."live show" reviews are about as meaningful or as "weighty" as the shallow and fawning shilling of Entertainment Tonight or access hollywood...they are just another arm...an extension of the PR shilling machine to help in the selling of cds...awards voting recognition factors...and of course, live show promotion! Nothing more...and nothing less...

maclen said...

So, apparently, according to the "twits" over at the NKUser's site...the cletus had another "surprise" for the calgary fans...

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.invisionzone.com/index.php?showtopic=11945&st=100&start=100

At Keith's concert in Calgary tonight, right after he finished OIAL, he mentioned that Nicole "is here tonight". Then he said "we also had a special guest this afternoon and we'd like to show you that now". And beautiful Sunday Rose was shown on the screen!

...So, the orb must be all out in desperation as his cd sinks and as the CMA noms voting is underway...he drops it to the calgary crowd the night before of his "apparent" vistit to the local zoo with kidman, who also evidently didnt't feel it was "buzz-worthy" enough for her to call in her papparatz online sources...ie; JJ and GG to get that particular photo op on the nets...now he is rather garrishly using his kid to try and ramp up some really "feel good" and "awwwwwww" PR moments at the gig! So apparently little sunri is "of age" to be shameless used as another PR tool to be exploited by the newly christened inept team cletus!" And no doubt kidman...who once blathered to parade mag just one year ago...

http://www.parade.com/celebrity/2008/10/nicole-kidman-tears-of-joy

Kidman says. “People say, ‘Oh, it would be so much easier if you’d just let them get a photo of her.’ And I can’t. I’m like, ‘I don’t want to. I want her to stay out of that.’"

...is herself all set to parade her daughter for the press once again... just as she did at the european premiere promo of Australia last year... for the upcoming PR for her next film! As she also said in the article in Parade..."Maybe that will wane as she gets bigger, and I’ll be easier with it. But for now, I’m still keeping her in a bubble....Her eyes turn red and moist. ” (AWWWWWW!!!)

...well, yes, the expiration date of her willingness for her and cletus to begin to exploit their baby is over...just as both their careers are in massive decline...and one is definately over! The age of innocence and living in a "bubble" is over for little sunri!

maclen said...

So it seems...ever since that interview with the winnipegsun... here:

http://www.winnipegsun.com/entertainment/columnists/darryl_sterdan/2009/09/18/10969276-sun.html

...where the orb had to admit that the family has only "been out a couple of times" to see his show...cletus seems to have gotten pretty concerned with making sure that everyone be aware that "the family" is now "on tour" with him in Canada...despite any... or even one viable and tangible sighting of said "family". Cletus himself announces kidman is "in the house" at his first canadian gig...and that the "family" even went to the zoo...yet not one bothersome pap was in the vicinity apparently... another reviewer even mentions the kidman shout out by cletus, and states "kidman is APPARENTLY "backstage" since I assume she wasnt in the audience because cletus didnt point her out for croud gawking...then in calgary show #2, the cletus announces even little sunri is in attendance...and even proves it... by showing a "video" of said child! Well now, the story gets interesting...the aforementioned "twits" by the fansies at the NKUsers sight filed under kidman "twitter sighting"...seems someone claims there is a photo of kidman at a canadian dentist...but the photo is not yet published because of "publishing rights/permission not yet ok'd! And apparently another twit from edmonton claims the dymanic duo were at a private screening of The Informant at his theater. And the last post on that thread laments..." No family pictures popping up (so far)...and that apparently nobody uses cameraphones anymore! So 4 days "the family" is in canada..."that barren and god forsaken wasteland at the end of the earth" where no one apparently even has "cameraphones"...that even the NKUser fansies cannot even locate one? I tell you, when the orb is reduced to this "PR BS"...the inept "photo ops"...minus the photos...the "Family Canadian Tour"... by insinuation...the dude is in very pathetic shape!

maclen said...

Aha! Day 5 of the "Canadian Family tour"...there are finally photos of the "whole happy family"

http://www.edmontonsun.com/news/2009/08/18/10504781.html

...quite inevitable of course...as the cletus is on tour at the "great white north" till Oct. But that PR BS was way overdone till kidman and co. eventually jetted into edmonton for the photo ops...kidman no doubt too busy trying to rustle up the funding for her next weepy indie flop...and more importantly trying to rustle up another co-star with enough "clout" and "standing" to get the mullah to even get the film made in the first place...cant be too easy a job, that!

maclen said...

So, as I wind down this thread til the next entry...after the first 4 days of "media silence" had been broken in the "Canadian Family tour" by an "actual" photo op of the whole family in Edmonton...and I'm assuming the end of cletus announcing on stage that "kidman and baby are in the house...really they are!"...(he no longer needs to cover that kidman actually probably showed up in Canada after 4 days!)...the waiting game now turns to kidman's next film role. After the initial double news story that director Alfredson is in, but that co-star theron was out, there was of course the usual follow up stories "Danish Girl" set with kidman to play the gender changer. After the news that theron was out, I sensed a another case of deja vu for kidman...Ala the case of the "Monte carlo" remake...where the story was hyped back in 2007 that julia roberts may be in it with kidman...and you should also note that this remake also had a set Director, who also wrote a finished screenplay. But after that last hyped story involving Roberts...the film just fizzled...and this was before "Golden Compass" and "Australia" flopped at the box office. So basically, it seems that a viable co-star for the danish girl will have to be found if it is to come to fruition. Kidman, even in another dreary weepy indie, can no longer carry a film. Even though danish girl would be kidman's second self made flick, right after Rabbit hole, with theron dropping out, the pressure is on to find another "name"... someone of "weight." But again, I dont believe they will be able to find that viable "co-draw"...HA! I dont believe kidman at this point could even convince fellow aussie and "BBF" Naomi watts to be in this flick with her...not after seeing what happened to hugh jackman when he got pulled into "Australia" when russell crowe had the sense to drop out of that long winded dud! But...again, I would never underestimate kidman's certain desperation in even getting that to possibly be the case!

Sonora_Melody said...

Kidman was at the Calgary shows. A fan was able to take pictures of her on the first night.

maclen said...

HA! Well, right on cue...kidman is back in NY... at a pubic function with guess who? Courtesy of Lainey...

http://www.laineygossip.com/Nicole_Kidman_and_Naomi_Watts_at_The_Important_Dinner_for_Women_4_in_New_York_.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

...any doubts kidman is bending watts ear...or more than likely her arm... for her to be in The Danish Girl? Kidman is probably offer her everything and anything...top billing....well..."equal billing" probably....even thought a low budget indie that danish girl is, kidman is probably even offering watts a "percentage" of the gross! All said and done, my gut reaction is that watts wont be in kidman's film...despite all their talk about wanting to do a film together...it hasnt happened and there is a reason for that. Recall, BBF kidman and russell crowe were saying the same thing...and after two chances to do it...crowe passed on both times...and today, kidman is a "confirmed" box office washout! So only time will tell...

maclen said...

...ps...

...Boy...I'm on a roll right now... might as well keep it all rollin'!
So, tell me...anyone...that the kanye west/taylor swift incident at the VMA's didnt give swift a bump! This week in billboard chart watch, swift's latest cd jumped 2 spots from #10 to #8...and her previous cd jumped 3 spots from #48 to #45...meanwhile...cletus, who's supposedly thrilling his fans on the road...his recent cd has dropped a whopping 10 spots from #49 to #59. Doesnt seem his live tour is expanding his fanbase. And I dont see at all the cletus fixation with this whole lotta love for canada...this "Canadian Family tour" hype? Oh, I see...according to this article...

http://jam.canoe.ca/Music/Charts/COUNTRY.html

...the orbs cds are still actually climbing the charts over there...although even in the Great White North, swift is still dominating over the orb...swift at #2 and cletus #8. Now the only thing that will complete my day...if swift can actually take "entertainer" at the CMA"S.

Choice said...

Maclen, how important was that dinner? A little birdie told me that Kidman originally thought it was in her honour. Don't you just love her self important attitude:

Does anyone else get the feeling that when Pez does decide to show up at one of KU's shows, that is when he has the obligation (contractual, verbal or out of guilt or stupidity...any of the above) to mention her name and give the obligatory "shout out"? That seems to be the only time now she is mentioned at the shows whereas before he had that same speech going on at EVERY show regardless if she was there or not. Is this a lame attempt at keeping her name "out there" in the public regardless of she has to get it done?

"Maclen, how important was that dinner? A little birdie told me that Kidman originally thought it was in her honour. Don't you just love her self important attitude:..."

Yes Choice, as kidman has proven in the past in many instances...her appearences at these kind of "events" are usually to her personal advantage...and it usually is to pimp her films...but in this case, as I was surmissing a few comments back, this one is to hook up with watts and "wrangle" in another co-star for her film.

Ah, Choice and Maclen: I see you're completely silent about the whopping 'success' (lmao) of Charlize's recent film: "The Burning Plain" opening weekend b.o. was $58,749 and to date the total domestic b.o. is only $81,726.

Charlize has proven once again that her middle name of 'Flop' is very well-deserved. It looks like all her 'PR' at the recent U.S. Open sitting next to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour for maximum press coverage did not help a bit!

Charlize bowing out of "Danish Girl" is great news for everyone involved with the film.
