Why Keith Urban deserves Entertainer of the Year

Now before any of you think we have gone soft in the head, hold back and hear what we have to say. Is Keith doing the best show in Country Music?

No. He is doing a damn good show but he has done better shows when he was hungrier. Is he appealing to more and more fans? No. He has not grown beyond his core fans. That is reflected in his CD sales, downloads and concert venue size. Has he put a face on Country Music in non-traditional markets both in the US and internationally? Yes, he has. While he hasn't toured in Europe this year, he will be touring in Canada and Australia. So why does he deserve the most important award in Country Music?

He deserves the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year award because he appreciates Country Music and he is showing it more and more. From his performance of Marty Robbins songs at the George Strait tribute, to his turn at the 2009 Grammy awards, to his very moving tribute to Les Paul when Paul recently died, Keith Urban is the face of Country Music to the rest of society. He is constantly coming back to Nashville as a muse, as a source of musical wealth and as his home. I doubt his wife likes living there. I believe she has no choice if she wants to maintain the facade of the marriage. He, however, likes Nashville. You can tell. He likes Country Music and is using his celebrity power to shine a light on it.

He does have celebrity power and that hasn't translated to material power. He is rich, but not a big player in Nashville. He is using what he has for Country Music. You can't say that about the most popular person in Country today, Taylor Swift, who has transcended into a celebrity beyond music. I think at one time Keith wanted that, but that isn't there anymore . His current activism for the Country Music Hall of Fame is to be applauded. He will be in the Hall of Fame one day, but in his appeals for the current fund raiser you can see that he is educated about this subject. This isn't about selling himself or his marriage; this is about something he believes in. That's nice to see. We find fault with him many times and deservedly so; but on this track we can't, and that is why we sincerely hope he wins Entertainer of the Year. We just hope he will be able to appreciate the fact that the award is about him and his work, and not about how his marriage made him who he is, because he made himself who he is and we know it. The nominations will be announced on September 9th.

So, the noms for the CMA's will be announced on sept 9th? To quote an old johnny carson bit, "I did not know that!" But it still doesnt negate my contention that cletus is simpy organizing this "benefit" for some much needed "personal publicity". Now Urban Myths believes that the orb is doing it because he in fact truly loves the country institution. That's a valid point, and it is a perspective one. What i question is the timing of this benefit. As Imahick stated in the previous thread, "it wont hurt in CMA voting" and I totally agree with that. And although "furself" also stated in the previous thread, "and i'm willing to bet that cma award criteria will make it clear that the eligibility cut off was prior to ku's announcement." Now, that is true of the "benefit" itself, but not true about voting for CMA noms...as this article I found states:

http://www.reuters.com/article/pressRelease/idUS173683+11-May-2009+PRN20090511

"the third and final ballot will be e-mailed to CMA members Oct. 16. Voting for
the CMA Awards final ballot ends at 5:00 PM/CT, Nov. 3.


...so, the orb's "benefit" will take place with 3 weeks left of voting eligibility for cma noms... til it ends on nov 3! Wow, the manipulation of the timing is impecible! And certainly the orb was not thinking of the goodwill buzz that's most certain to come after this, "a one-of-a-kind evening of music and camaraderie."

http://blog.cmt.com/2009-09-01/keith-urban-vince-gill-and-%E2%80%A6-surprise-guests/

In fact, it is quite "kidmanesque" and patented "inept team kidman" It is a "trifecta" of the ultimate and publicity mongering to the max! With the annoucement of this charity "benefit" the orb not only publicizes his current live tour...he garners some "goodwill" votes in the upcoming noms voting...(and as I've said before, the orb seems to always get an obligatory nomination...as if mandated in the industry, even if his music is not selling well nor how mediocre the reviews of the music are!)...plus, who in here doubts that this "benefit" will not be prominently featured in next years CMAS nominations? Live performance videos from this "benefit?" Live singles perhaps released from this benefit?...by cletus, and yes, other singers at this benefit! Yes, the timing benefits the orb, perhaps most, in oh so many ways! And as Urban Myths stated in the blog entry, urban myths believes it is because the orb loves the country institutions...but as urban myths also alludes to, I believe the orb is now embracing his "country ties" because his little foray into trying to break out of country and into the mainstream "pop" scene, now being dominated by taylor swift, was not very successful with his album, Defying Gravity.

joy said...

Well, so true that he deserves the Entertainer of the Year Award because he chose country music instead of any other genre. He can play the HECK out of any kind of music and sing it as well but his heart was in country music and you can tell he feels it in his bones. He does love Nashville and no matter where he ends up I think it means a lot for him to be accepted there. It's what his whole musical ambition was, to reach Nashville and make records and he's done that and more.

Hoping Keith gets the EOTY and many more awards for many years. But awards or not the man is a masterful musician and that cannot be denied.

Imahick said...

I agree with this blog. Keith has focused on his career and had a very good year. He has made a substantial contribution to the genre.

He released a new cd, it was #1 on Billboard. He's had a #1 single with Brad P, a #1 single from his CD and 2 in the top 10. He's played GOO twice and and I hear has another date planned in October. He's played NASCAR...he's played for football...he's done benefits including playing a major role in the HOF concert on Oct 13th. And he's been present in the city of country music, instead of trapsing all over the world after the wife.

His tour has been successful ... and has been getting very positive reviews.

Overall ... it's been a good year and he deserves to win ETOY. It's time for Kenny to step aside.

Imahick said...

OK...so what does that have to do with the topic? They actually went out with their child. That is not a unique concept to most parents, but when it happens with Keith and NK it gets international attention.

The topic is Keith's career and the hope that he wins ETOY.

It looks like you, k, don't care if he has a career.

This is why this union can harm Keith (and NK)'s career. Their private life should be private, instead of the focus of all the media.

Gone are the days when we didn't know what he did on his time off. A glimpse of him during his down time was unusual ... and the focus of the press was on his music and his career.

NK has always had a media circus surrounding her...whether she was with Tom or after the divorce, with Lenny or Bing or her body guard. I believe she orchestrated that to maintain the buzz. That circus joined Keith when she did and it does NOT add to his success in any way. It is distracting.

What about all the garbage about the drugs and sex and carrying on? When was that reported?

I always again, assumed, he hitched his wagon to Kidman because he wanted either a. not to work anymore or b. to slowly but surely make his way to the crossover pop/rock charts asap. I mean, he was country music's bad boy for a reason, no?

Imahick said...

He spoke about his initial rehab because it was the skeleton in his closet that he didn't want to come back and bite him in the butt. He did not discuss his drugs / drinking often after that and it was only as it applied to his past. He did not acknowledge further problems with drugs / alcohol, even though he apparently had another rehab stint and obviously continued to induldge.

The only girlfriend he ever discussed was fiance Laura. After they broke up, he NEVER spoke of girlfriends. He never even admitted he and Nikki Taylor were together, and they were engaged and almost married.

He was very private about that part of his life. Now some people had seem him with Nikki and others had seen him with other women, but it was not a focus of his career and it was not reported in the gossip rags or even Country media.

He was entitled to that privacy prior to NK.

Once NK came along, the drugs and women were "out there" ... and of course, KUNK emerged.

Sonora_Melody said...

Oh yeah, he was 'so private' before he met Nicole that he even told the press he joined the 'mile high' club.

Hoosierlady said...
"I always again, assumed, he hitched his wagon to Kidman because he wanted either a. not to work anymore or b. to slowly but surely make his way to the crossover pop/rock charts asap."

Yeah, I agree with choice b. hoosier... i believe cletus honestly believed that a union with kidman would heightened and broaden his appeal. But in fact, his appeal has fallen and his "marriage", I certainly believe has evaporated much of his core fanbase...It was true immediately after the marriage and it is certainly true now. And again, the proof is right here...

http://www.roughstock.com/blog/reba-tops-nielsen-soundscan-hot-200-chart

...and looking at this chart list, with taylor swift having sold 3.7 mil cds and "Hanna Montana" now selling 1.4 mil cds...I dont blame the majority of cletus' former fans of abandoning his lastest attempt at "bubblegum" music, defying gravity...he's a 41 year old trying to appeal to the teen and tween set! Yeah, that's a winner! And once again, I must fall back on my good ol' standby...the newly "monikered" inept team cletus has most certainly taken the playbook from inept team kidman! For as has been known and especially been established the past few years...kidman appeals to NO ONE! So going back to the beginning, it seems the majority of former fans of cletus apparently didnt buy the "revisionist" story of "Love at first sight"...or the painfully fabricated "Fairytale wedding"...or the actually routine "precious Miracle waters PR baby." Or rather, perhaps other than "buying it" they simply werent interested in continuing to support the orb's career.

HA! but what you fail to realize, it IS a unique concept when it comes to kidman! Who has very much...and very rightly so... garnered public whispers of having apparently abandoned the kids she "adopted" with tom cruise...and with who, supposedly, she shares joint custody. It's been how many years since she has been seen with those kids? Actually, that "out for a stroll" photo op is quite unremarkable...so unremarkable that clearly typical photo op distributors, JJ and GG didnt bother to cover it! But...now here we have another case of an opportune and clearly "planned" photo op...

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban kiss and canoodle at US Open


...here clearly, you can witness cletus, the apprentice, is caught Studying ineptitude PR 101...from the lamest practioner herself! The self described "private" couple just happen to get snapped making out...at the US open. And I'm quite sure they are unaware that it's a pretty well covered, televised event! I'm sure the "reqular" members of the crowd, who are actually there to see the matches...probably wait for the breaks in play to just...make out! Sure, if it's a young immature couple with the uncontrollable hots for each other...and who knows, perhaps that is what these inept PR mongers want to convey? Either way, it is transparent, blatant and all together obvious!

Imahick said...

The Playgirl spread and mile high club were a long time ago. Take a look at his interviews since 2001 and you will see that he pretty much refuses (but in a very witty way) to discuss his dating life.

He did not project an image of a man with a drinking problem, drugging problem, multple girlfriends or partying life style. That was his private life and it was not for public consumption.

After he and NK got together, much of Keith's "private life" became public and that has continued. They seem to be able to fly under the radar when it suits, but much of their life is played out in the tabloids and celeb sites.\

They were kissing at the US Open today.

maclen said...

So, am I getting an inkling...that this rather blatant "action shot" of the very public "canoodling" at the US open...(I'm guessing when they probably saw themselves on a jumbotron...and it was ACTION!)...that this is an overt PR campaign to "spice up" their rather bland and anemic image, which is no doubt the reason both their careers are floundering! Could it be that the orb, who could be sweating out...and if he's not he should!...his mediocre reviewed and poorly selling cd? And could these upcoming CMA noms be a little more important to the orb, being as his cd is doing so poorly? It would be a real embarrassement if cletus couldnt even muster another "entertainer" nod at the cmas, notwithstanding even a win, wouldnt it? Since it is pretty much a given that his usual obligatory noms at the cma's for at least the past 4 yrs have been "entertainer" and "male vocal" noms...give or take an extra nod here and there for an Album nod. "Male vocal" seems pretty random considering all the accolades I keep hearing about his "guitar play" (I saw his "GP" on the last grammys...it was not very impressive...he got outdone by john mayer!..and DONT even bring up Buddy Guy and BB King!) And just to bring up my "obligatory" and almost industry "mandated" noms for cletus...his grammy "token" nom the past 3 years is "Male Vocal". Now as for the CMA's, I learned he actually won "entertainer" in 2005...his last good year...which interestingly, and again to me, NOT coincidently was the year before kidman came onto his scene. So after all this considered, if cletus was a supersticious man, he would wisely leave kidman at home the night of nov 11! Now of course, taylor swift winning "entertainer" would tickle me to no end...but as I've also just recently learned, the last time the cma's even nominated a woman for "entertainer" was 8 yrs ago! And 9 years ago they actually awarded women! (btw, the dixie chicks were the last nominated and the last to win!) Apparently the CMA's entered the 21st century rolling back the clock on equal opportunity! But I predict..."entertainer" noms will be dominated by the usual "good ol' boys!"

Tara said...

I didn't know going to a tennis match was supposed to make one hot?
Remember that whenever there is a very obvious PDA from the Kidmans there is something more to the story.

maclen said...

HA! Just read lainey's post on the US open photo op...hilarious...

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

Granny’s Third Lip loves tennis

...third lip?...funny...and if you'll notice the second pic... kidman and cletus are both looking up to the jumbotron and waiting for the right moment and....BAM!...the very next pic, they're making out like teens! "My gosh...they're just so much in love, arent they? And that "spark" must certainly still be running at full flame!" Those pics surely, and "definately" show that they are there to simply watch some tennis...and in no way reveals a couple of floundering celebs simply and obviously (over)playing it up for the cameras! Now check out pic #6, they are flashing their, "Awards show Deep gaze into each other eyes" pose!
But what I find even more hilarious is how lainey starts the post...by talking about actual players at the Open! As lainey puts it, "So Granny Freeze emerged yesterday from a low key summer with her husband beside her, loving it up for the cameras, not a wrinkle in sight, and her third lip squeezing out for a kiss." Yes, kidman is ramping up for the promo of Nine, and the orb is set and eager to learn how she does it...every ineptly!

getaholdofurself said...

i don't think mile high club admissions or playgirl spreads scream private person any more than bathroom stalls and restaurant booths do. ku's marriage to nk most definitely put him on the pap radar, but according to many of the skeptics, the press is one of the reasons he married her. mission accomplished?

hoosierlady said...

He's wearing the banker's pants again.

Here come the heels!!!

maclen said...

"I didn't know going to a tennis match was supposed to make one hot?"

Well, there not...you go to a tennis match to watch tennis being played. But for kidman and cletus, it is an obvious platform to play to the cameras...and in fact I must retract that "inkling" comment I made earlier, that this was a "new" PR campaign...seems after being reminded by this article:

http://www.smh.com.au/national/the-diary/dead-mans-a-no-show-20090908-fg3j.html

"DID Nicole Kidman and her country crooner husband, Keith Urban, spy a camera on centre court at the US Open this week?...as they held hands, laughed and kissed in the stands in a knock-out performance not seen courtside since their appearance at the Australian Open last year."

...this is obviously a patented photo op bit...

http://justjared.buzznet.com/2008/01/21/nicole-kidman-australian-open-2008/
Nicole Kidman @ Australian Open 2008

...and yeah, those are very deeeeeep wrinkles on kidman's forhead...recall this was shortly after she confirmed she was pregnant...so therefore, she is "botox free".. "completly natural"...at last...but only for about 9 months!
So, why the "obvious PDA?" She has a film coming out next month...her "promo" season has begun!

k said...

Awww, so glam together. Makes me want to fly to NYC for a weekend.

http://justjared.buzznet.com/photo-gallery/2198452/nicole-kidman-keith-urban-hands-on-01/

maclen said...

So, firstly... "The Third lip is back! As I mentioned, kidman's promo season is upon us. As lainey pointed out yesterday of the US Open photo ops...

"Also, Granny Freeze’s Third Lip in New York, enjoying US Open Tennis with her husband, freshly injected, plumped and ready to pimp Nine.

...so today, another set of photo ops at the US open, only this time with very embarrassing profile views of her third lip...

http://www.laineygossip.com/Nicole_Kidmans_third_lip_from_the_side_with_Keith_Urban_at_the_US_Open_September_2009.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

So, after a "quiet summer" kidman is back with a vengeance with the 3rd set of photo ops...in as many days! And what better place to get them than in NYC...The question is, will inept team kidman make it 4 straight days?
And now to the CMA's...yes the usual good ol' boys have returned... chesney...paisley...strait....cletus (along with his usual obligatory "male voc" nod)...but wait "Bo and luke dukes"...there is taylor swift! So the CMA actually took a step out of the stone age and nominated a female for "entertainer" after 8 yrs. And from just the little Ive seen, swift not only has had the more commercial success...she also happens to have by far the more interesting and engaging personality...well above the limp, bland and anemic orb, for sure...but perhaps she doesnt poccess the main attribute, she isnt male.

hoosierlady said...

yes k we know you love them so.

and we are sincerely glad you love them, really we are.

however, we are right in the middle of gearing up for the next movie premeire, which mean sharpening our talons and our claws to rip NK apart at every chance we get, because, let's see, if I can remember all of this correctly:

we are: middle aged, fat, uneducated, walmart shopping, man hating, probably frigid, no talent, unemployed, unamerican/unaustrailian/unfillintheblank/, jealous, iliterate, no class,white trash,fashion stupid,bottom feeding,hateful, snot nosed bitches. (sorry, Maclen, exclusionary).

nevertheless, we have an agenda here, and we're busy, can't you see?

We are trying to be as nice as we can.

Please, for the next couple of weeks while we hone our sarcasm, (razor sharp as it is), excuse us as we ignore you. I am pretty sure, the rest of the group have preparations to make in advance of the premeire also.

Oh,

if we could, we would pass a hat so you could go to new york and live with them.

I am sure they would welcome you with open arms. Aren't you?

Ha! You did forget..."smartass"...lacking in quite a few departments"(re; my sexual preference)... and "pompous"...or was that just aimed at poor little ol' me!?
Yes, it is time for "kidman Promo season" open season of inept PR 101 highlighting and noting... and I sure do find it fun!

maclen said...

So, as we do enter that comletely and ultimately expected time I refer to as "kidman's Promo season"...I am reminded that there is only 13 days left officially to the summer of '09. And as I've elluded to previously, this news report that came out only weeks after kidman had appeared at the UN to turn in that "signed petition" she "presented to" U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Nov 26 '08...

http://www.looktothestars.org/news/1631-nicole-kidman-delivers-anti-violence-petition-to-un
Nicole Kidman Delivers Anti-Violence Petition To UN

...well, this story then came out about 3 weeks later, while kidman was still jetsetting across Europe shilling for "Australia"..

http://news.guide-bulgaria.com/SC/Plovdiv/Plovdiv-city/Plovdiv/News.aspx?5635=Nicole_Kidman_may_visit_Plovdiv_as_UN_ambassador_of_goodwill
Nicole Kidman may visit Plovdiv as UN ambassador of goodwill
"Kidman plans to visit Plovdiv in the summer of 2009, informed Milena Kadieva of the local branch of the Bulgarian Center for Gender Studies. She was the only Bulgaria at the UN World Summit in New York, dedicated to the issue of violence against women."
And after having found this unifem press release that shows Milena kadeva was in fact at that event kidman presented the petition...

http://www.unifem.org/news_events/story_detail.php?StoryID=762

...I certainly believe more than ever, that kidman, on the "promo wagon" to shill her film...being she had certainly gone over to the UN right off the talkshow "View" makeup chair, had indeed discussed maybe...or possibly visiting Plovdiv on behalf of the UN in the summer of 09. And most certainly, inept team kidman even had a flunky discuss with Milena Kadieva's peeps this little "news release" to aid with her "European world tour" to promote "Australia." But as is now clearly plain, kidman is too lazy to visit any "unfortunates"...well, outside of the UN...or at a press conference in front of photographers while she is shilling for a film anyways. So as the promo season begins for her next film...I wonder, as it is kidman's want, if she will have anymore "humanitarian" events or press conferences penciled into her PR schedule next month?

hoosierlady said...

Applause, Applause, very well done!

If I may. . . . .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plovdiv

It will be fun to see, will she stay, or will she go now?

She doesn't have a principle role, correct? So if the thing is successful, she'll ride coattails, if it flops, they have someone to blame, and she can leave and go to Plovdiv.

Right now, all is well, as she made it three days in a row, with 9/10 at the, you guessed it, Farmer's Market, with the child, (can't someone PLEASE write a playbook for her that is original)?

maclen said...

hoosierlady said...
"Applause, Applause, very well done!

It will be fun to see, will she stay, or will she go now?"

Well, hoosier, kidman is not known for her foreign trips...despite her past proclamations...even at an "Official" UN press conference!
As for the film Nine...considering it comes out next month, not much info about it. Basically, the only info to be found is at the NKUsers fansie site...where a few users claim to have anctually seen the film...

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.invisionzone.com/index.php?s=b988d34862ca0704ba15d414ae23f117&showtopic=11927

...and apparently, she is only in about "10-15 minutes" of the film. Yes, I'm sure a very insignificant role for her insignificant career!
And the photo ops just keep coming... she even accomplishes a "bi coastal" appearance...today she's in Cali at the farmers market...just yesterday she was in NYC at another US Open match! Tommorrow I suspect she will be in Nashville at the pottery barn!

maclen said...

...PS...

...oh oh, cletus better be careful...his cd is threatened of being "lapped"...once again... by fellow CMA "entertainer" nominee taylor swifts "previous cd" on the billboard 200 charts. Did I mention, "lapped"...again! Although Cletus' cd, "Defying Gravity" remains unchanged from last week at #44...swift's previous cd, "Taylor Swift" has jumped 7 spots from #54 to #47. But as I discovered concerning the CMA's...it's just too "dag-burn" bad swift isnt a "good ol' boy!"

maclen said...

Well it seems I need to ammend my comments...seems while I was at the NKUsers fansie site reviewing the comments of users who claim to have seen the film Nine...I also read at the NKUsers fansie site that the "farmers market" photo op was taken in LA...well, as I've just learned...another site says it was in fact in Nashville...

http://celebrity-babies.com/2009/09/10/nicole-kidman-and-sunday-are-pretty-in-pink/

...well, whatever the case may be, the photo ops are coming so furiously, even the devoted fansies cant keep it straight as to where they originated at! so she may then...have another "photo op in LA at the pottery barn" So stay tuned for the latest Photo ops...they may even in fact be in Plovdiv!...(though I seriously doubt that!)

Choice said...

Love the US Open pics. I am so pleased the kissing routine is still part of the role playing. I look forward to it all happening again at the Australian Open in early 2009. Thanks Nicole for these tender moments.

maclen said...

So, it seems that the orb, who certainly confirms to me why his cd, defying gravity is selling so poorly, has also conveyed what he believes his fans have been wondering for oh so long in these audio interviews...

http://blog.thenewstribune.com/tacomarockcity/2009/09/11/keith-urban-on-nicole-kidmans-support-influence-on-new-record-audio/

Keith Urban on Nicole Kidman's support, influence on new record (audio)

...and that is... "is his heart open and is he brave enough to be loved?" Well I'm sure the "middle aged, fat, uneducated, walmart shopping, man hating, probably frigid, no talent, unemployed"..etc...women mentioned by hoosierlady a few comments ago who troll this site are particularly wondering that themselves. Just as I'm sure the cletus fans will all rejoice in that the orb will confirm that all is well in that department and all is going well for him now... and it is all on account that he "allowed his heart to be opened and he had the courage to allow kidman to love him!" That should get him alot of brownie points...especially here and now...at Urban Myths!

k said...

Awwww, Keith Urban's Baby. Surely his "fans" will adore this photo:

http://www.ibabycouture.com/blog/?p=3236

hoosierlady said...

I'm sorry, but how many tours do we have to listen to his heart being open for love again question?

What closed his heart in the first place?


Is it just because we have read all of this tripe so much or are these people that limited in their responses? Do their inept PR teams only have a certain script each interview can use? Why is it always the same?

It's forcing me to make the same comments in a much more colorful verbal way, I'm just warning everyone.

Maybe I've missed my calling, because I know I could think of different questions than the three standards they seem to go over and over. Like, for example, how often do you highlight? Does Nicole have to clip her nose hair? Do you use Charmin or Northern? Do you like Tupperware? How about those Yankees? Anything but the open heart question, that is, unless there's been a blockage and we've had to do a little surgery, that might put a twist on it.

k said...

Hoosier,

STOP reading Urban's press and only listen to the music. You and others here seem to seek what they hate. Strange doings this blog, amusing froma Psychological perspective.

Your problem solved.

maclen said...

Well, hoosier, being that it is my job to be a "smartass"... and it is a position I take very serious...I like to point these things out...and quite often. And as it is that I am not burdened by a "past love" or a "doubting love" or a "questioning love" for the cletus... I show no bias to reality. And the reality is that the orb's career is in decline...and right at this moment too...because the orb mistakenly believe's by way of kidman, that his fans are really interested in his relationship with her and how it now pertains to his music. And although the majority of the participaters here also know that when it is kidman who talks up her "relationship" during her usual "film PR circus", she aint talking about cletus...she is talking about the cruise... and of course are exasperated by that! They're constant refrain is "We want to hear about the music, and not her!" But then there lies the ultimate problem now...he has now actually made his music about her. And despite the rollercoaster ride the "once" fans...the perhaps "once again" future fans...or as I have constantly witnessed here at Urban Myths...the once again "exasperated" fans...the "1/4th fanbase" he has left will continue to dwindled with this current "inept PR!"

I have a problem?

also. . . .

STOP reading Urban's press and only listen to the music.

Oh no!

You can't expect me to do that. I can give all I can for this UM cause. I can be witty, sarcastic, I can take hits from Maclen, and I can bounce back, I can give Maclen hits back, and endure 2 week intervals with no comments directed my way. I can look at countless stupid photos and read idiotic interviews and quotes that make absolutely no sense at all. I can put up with bullshit photos and garbage I would never read or touch in order to get a laugh here or there from this blog, but I have to draw the line somewhere,

you cannot make me listen to that idiotic pop/country crap that man keeps putting out.

I read once a long time ago that he wanted to be a relevant musician. If there was any indication he was going in that direction, perhaps I would lend an ear, but, what I have heard so far is sugar coma time.

There is nothing new here pshycologically, I'm bored. This is a good show. They entertain me. Plastic people, plastic lives for MY ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY.
I do not know these people, they do not know me. I do not know what they love or hate, and you do not either. The difference is, I do not care.

It's kind of like watching Barbie and Ken in real life. Think of it that way, it really is a blast.

Ha! Obviously hoosier, you are dealing with another devoted ...and "Urban MYth's thread" ignorant fansie. Who obviously has absolutely no idea why you are posting here! As for my aforementioned unbiased view of the reality... after about 3 years of posting on this blog, it is the pattern of the various fansies who stumble into this thread...to believe that it is YOU who has a problem...and usually some kind of "psychological" problem..."jealousy of kidman"..."bitter you are not the one"...blah blah blah. For, of course, it cant have anything to do with them. They are "perfect" and "they are adorable" etc. and it cannot simply be that you think his music is now just juvenile and shallow swill!
And again, after about the past 3 years of the constant fansie complaints..."If you hate them so much, why do you keep talking about them then?" My ultimate reaction becomes..."Well, if you hate what you read on this blog, why do you feel the need to come in her and comment?" Because...everyone has their own reasons for EVERYTHING they do. Now that's simple.

Maclen, of course, I am, once again, in total agreement with you. Why can't the reason for commenting on this blog be just a simple, innocent, truth. That truth being, as you already know, because they are so completely bizarre I cannot wait for the next episode. Why is it only a handful of people see the gross contradictions in what is said from one day to the next, the never ending fashion disaster, the undying love for the ex, and the complete and total abandon of any shred of dignity the current 'love' has, and in turn, the absolute hillarious nature of watching this all play out in front of us? I do not understand, but oh well. . . .

I will return to watching the world go round.
