American Music Awards... another Reward for Keith?

Keith is nominated for an AMA... and is performing. Well just look who is presenting an award that night... Did she snag a performance slot for the dutiful hubby? He has been such a good boy lately, non?

Kidman Popping Up at American Music Awards

Today 3:00 PM PST by Marc Malkin

Nicole Kidman is coming to the American Music Awards.

I can exclusively tell you that the Oscar-winner will be a presenter at the show on Sunday—but not for hubby Keith Urban...

Ms. Kidman will join Kate Hudson to introduce the Black Eyed Peas.

Why?

Well, Kidman, Hudson and Fergie are three of the mega-stars we'll be seeing next month in the musical movie Nine.

Kidman joins previously announced presenters Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Kristen Bell and Colbie Caillat.

The awards broadcast live from downtown L.A. on Sunday on ABC.

I'm sure Kate & Fergie are just jumping for joy that NK has been added. After all, she WAS such a team player during filming, hence all those pictures of the gals out'n'about in London - NOT!

And truthfully, I want to see "Nine" just for Kate's performance, from what I saw on ET or one of those shows that girl can sing!

Pretty soon kidman will have her name on orb's cd...and at his live show venues, it will be promoted as "NICOLE KIDMAN....and friend!
Kidman presenting at the AMA's makes about as much sense as kidman presenting at the Tony's. And she simply decided to present at the Tony's so she could have an excuse to skip her own dismal film's premiere! But basically, not even this type of "incestual" bastardization of media conglomerates...ie: kidman appearing on the WeinCo owned tv show, Project Runway to shill the WeinCo feature film, Nine...can, in my opinion, save the already "PR sketchy" Nine. I keep getting the feeling once this weeks Nine "media blitz" ends...and everyone moves on...people will be soooo indifferent to the film by the time it actually comes out....in 5 weeks!

**BREAKING NEWS**

ATTENTION! THE BIG NEWS COMING FROM KIDMAN'S TONIGHT SHOW WITH CONAN OBRIAN APPEARANCE LAST NIGHT IS...

http://www.instyle.co.uk/news/celeb-hair-nicole-kidman-goes-back-to-blonde-20-11-09?destination=news

Celeb hair: Nicole Kidman goes back to blonde

"Nicole Kidman ditches red and goes back to blonde on US chat show"


Crikey, my first thought is, "Boy, what breed of kidman's alpacas did they shave down to make that matted rag she is wearing?!

Tara said...

Don't ask me why but I watched that insipid bag of air on Conan last night. Okay first WTF was she wearing?
Yes I do sport some back cleavage from time to time but I was taught how to dress. Kidman and her bony back just about made me toss my cookies. Then she opened her mouth. What does she really have to say? Nothing. She hasn't seen the movie but she hears that its great? Funny didn't she and Keith go to a screening of it Monday evening in New York? Then she talks about Sophia Loren holding her baby girl wow so what? This woman is such a waste of time and she is vapid. I don't think the Harvard educated Conan was very impressed.

abc said...

It's Official:

Nicole Kidman is an airhead. And I am a masochist. She irritates the hell out of me but i can't help watching; like looking at those weirdo's in People magazine; awful but you can't help staring.

Well, her interview with Conan is excrutiating to watch; like all of her interviews. There is no link between her brain and her mouth. Her manner is pathetic. she says whatever flashes thru her head and then gives that awful guffawing laugh, rolling her eyes and doing the whole coy act .... aaarrrgh!
she says she wore zinc cream on her whole face as a kid .... so not true: NO-ONE wears zinc over their whole face! Again to make us believe she doesn't 'do' stuff to her face.

Clearly her mention of pizza on Oprah was because the film is 'Italian'. and her allergy to strawberries and her fear of butterflies is to make her appear a fragile princess ... how I wish she would grow up. If it weren't for the fact that so many people make money off of her she would be a nothing. The more I see of her idiocy, the less respect I have for Keith - doesn't he see she is a prize idiot? When she was asked if they are having more kids she says: "we're open to anything" .... now what the hell does that mean? Again, very private! She says she never reads anything then says she 'read the GQ article and just knew it would be (miscontrued).'

Anyhow; for those of you who wish to feel the pain; here is the link to the Conan show ... he is funny, but she is ..... no words to describe it.

Must be time to put the red head back in the drawer and pull out the blonde one as the red seems to get alot of really bad press.

notachance said...

That's a really bad picture of her. Bobble head in full play. And that doesn't look blonde to me, more like mousey brown.

The "You can lick me and stick me, oh. . . I'll be quiet"

Maybe she should read URBAN MYTHS

it would help her keep track

abc said...

I just posted this at Just Jared in response to the article around her interview with Home Journal ... another that is full of inconsistency; it never ends!!!
I did it basically out of annoyance at the response of her fans to others' opinions of their crush - I never usually post there. Foxy at NKU said Home Journal sent the material to them ... clearly the PR machine does follow the internet stuff; HOPEFULLY, they read Urban Myths and hopefully sometime they will see some truth; that not everyone adores, nor is fooled by, Nicole Kidman.

I would REALLY appreaciate it if Nicole’s fans would desist from accusing those who have opinions of Nicole that are other than sycophantic as being ‘Scientologists’. Some of us are normal intelligent human beings who are not sucked in by the false illusion that Hollywood and the media tries to wrap around their mealtickets. The best way to form an unbiased opinion of Nicole is to watch ALL of her interviews; the most recent with Conan. She is excrutiatingly ditzy, clueless, self-conscious, mentally disorganised, inconsistent, hypocritical, pathetically provocative, and seemingly uneducated. ‘Shyness’ is no excuse … she is an actor trained over nearly 3 decades … it is nothing more than an act for people to think she is sweet & cute. She has turned herself into a barbie icon persona and presents a new ‘idea’ of herself whichever way the wind is blowing: vamp, mom, avant garde actor, country-gal, princess, serious humanitarian …. whatever is expedient to her product. I am particularly perturbed at the entire world of journalists, writers, bloggers et al being accused of ‘miscontruing’ her and taking her words ‘out of context’. Nicole knows EXACTLY what she is doing, despite her pathetic retractions, and that is to remain the media and red carpet ***** and fashion junkie that she has become; a role which far outshines her ‘work’ as an aspirant actor.

Please, also resist slagging Tom just because he is now in her past. She has admitted that she became famous because of her marriage to him, as we all know, so there is no need now to congratulate her for ‘escaping’. He dumped her, as no doubt Keith will too when he wakes up out of his daze. I am not a fan of either Tom nor Keith (except for his guitar skills), however, I dislike (Tom in particular) being made into the devil, simply because of his personal spiritual practices. she scored big-time through him. I am not a scientologist; but I have eyes, ears and a brain. thank-you.

# 53 2doves @ 11/21/2009 at 4:29

in case I am now accused of being uneducated; spell check:
‘appreciate’
‘misconstruing’

(and various punctuation sins which don’t alter the meaning)

@ 11/21/2009 at 4:37

A question to all women who have had children: when your breasts grow bigger during pregnancy and breastfeading, do they go back to what they were before in size, albeit probably a bit more sagging? Or do they stay as enlarged as they were prior to breastfeeding?

Nicole’s current lips are a mistake. She has miscalculated in terms of the effect she was clearly hoping to achieve. Yes, there is airbrushing too, but only to smooth out the deformities she now has as a result of plumping them up. Those that are in denial, do not accuse those of us who can see with our own eyes as being ‘jealous’.

Each to their own.

Yes tada, kidman is one super-artificial, plasticine true to life version of "Mrs Potato head" (...to orb's "Mr Potato head, of course)...and all her accessories are conviently mix and match!

Yes, done many times, hoosier...and in the present desperate days of "debacle-ry"...the future will be a constant stream of embarrassing "retractions" for all the misspoken or clearly ridiculous statements!

Ha! Well, abc, as I so clearly proved a few threads ago on the "veracity" of the fansie NKUser site...those fansies will no doubt "alter" the place based on what is being said over here at UM...and as to the "press kit" recieved from LHJ promo dept....to the NkUsers? A "list of quotes" from the kidman piece...posted after the article has already been posted on the site...with said quotes included? How can I put that? "unimpressively " impressive?

Love this description, absolutely love it, wish I had thought of it myself. Give yourself a pat on the back for that one, Maclen. Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, all in black Nike, all the time.


ABC

I am so proud of your post I could weep. I didn't see a single spelling error or punctuation error either, but I'm not sure my brain would have caught it if it were there. You go girl! You go all night, and remember, we're right behind you!

maclen said...

So, the Ladies Home Journal piece? I want to go over this part...

http://www.lhj.com/style/covers/the-new-nicole-kidman/?page=4

"On squeezing into her evening gowns for Nine when she was nursing 6-week-old Sunday
"They're not very big, my boobs, so they just became normal size. I loved it! I felt very Woman. When you've had a slightly androgynous body your whole life, having breasts is a nice feeling."

First let's once again review the complete contadiction of the qoute in itself... she says her

"boobs are not very big...their normal size...

but then ends with...

"When you've had a slightly androgynous body your whole life, having breasts is a nice feeling."

...get it, first she says "there not very big...and then "implies" they got bigger when she had her kid and was nursing...yet, if you look at this production still of kidman...courtesy of my buds over at NKU...

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1229422/Marion-Cotillards-perfect-10-French-star-gives-award-winning-performance-jilted-wife-Nine.html

...recall this was only a few weeks of having her kid...she looks very much her anemically thin self and her "boobs" are not big...certainly not as big as they appeared at the CMA" a few weeks ago! So clearly, this "boobs" comment in the latest issue of LHJ is not a reflection of how kidman looked only weeks after giving birth and filming the role...but a pre planned reaction to her no doubt obviously intended "voluptuous" look for PR BS coming out this month! It is the same tortured illogic that inept team kidman attempted back in Oct of 2007 when her firt implants were "explained" from gaining weight for the role in "The Reader"...

http://www.exposay.com/nicole-kidman-gaining-weight-for-new-film-role/v/14545/

Nicole Kidman Gaining Weight For New Film Role

"The pal added: "Nicole loves her new bosom, but she is finding eating so much makes her lethargic and sleepy."

..of course, visually kidman had not gained any weight...but her "bosom" was noticably bigger! Later, when she did become pregnant, she dropped out of the role of "The Reader"...and suddenly, her bigger bosom was then explained as being caused by her pregnancy...but of course as I pointed out at the time...kidman gave birth in july 08...so she concieved in Nov 07...but the bigger bosom explainations had started a month prior, in Oct 07! And so, the usual inept team kidman PR BS still continues to contradict and smack head onto the true and actual reality of the situations. Which is why kidman no longer has crediblity...and her films continue to flop and flail like a chicken without it head!

maclen said...

...ps...

...oh yes, also wanted to highlight this part of the LHJ piece as well...

In November Kidman was due to leave home again, this time traveling to Kenya for a few days on behalf of UNIFEM, a United Nations organization dedicated to ending discrimination and violence against women and with which she's had a long association. She wants to help start a hotline for abused women. "It's so they'll have a place to call. A lot of women are so terrified; they'll go to the police or court and don't win. We can set up shelters and raise money," says Kidman. "I'm constantly trying to find new ways to give back," she adds. "Women are nurturers. There's so much we can do with the power of our feelings, the power of our sensitivity."

...so do you think kidman will "clarify" this quote in the piece...seeing as she ended up NOT going to Kenya...but getting no doubt dumped for her "Hollywood demeans woman...but I Dont" statements at the hearing...and then coming out with the skanky "I'm into strange sexual fetish stuff" in her black underwear and kinky knee high black boots in the british GQ? But then kidman soooo savors getting "humanitarian cred" for deeds never accomplished...or even attempted!!

abc said...

MESSAGE TO NICOLE KIDMAN AND HER PR MACHINE: If you want to "give back": GIVE MONEY!!! I live in Africa, in Cape Town, one of the rape capitals of the continent, and take it from me, not one of our women raped and battered give's a rat's arse about the 'feelings' and 'sensitivity' of a surgically enhanced, skinny, spoilt and spoiled, over-pampered Hollywood airhead!! Put your money into shelters, whatever, and stop shoving your tits, pushed up, pumped up, whatever, into everyone's face; titillating men and setting the scene for abuse ... keep it "behind closed doors", as you say you like to keep things that are private ... we don't need you coming here just because you feel guilty at being so spoilt with almost perverse excess ... the money (how much??) that your pathetic face raises in the media is nothing compared with what you can spare from your purse ... the women need FUNDS!!!! not your "feelings". Get it???? Now, because you insanely say you never read anything in the media about yourself, would your PR, (who are no doubt reading this if they're worth their weight), PLEASE pass this message onto Nicole. She is now becoming beyond annoying!

maclen said...

So, as kidman makes an appearance at the CNN heroes awards... and to put it bluntly, is apparently now suffering from a cronic case of "bad hair...life"...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/93295066/WireImage

...truly, it helps make it unnoticable if the "extensions" matched the color of her own hair! (she's got a whole dark brown...bright yellow interweave going on) It got me to wondering if kidman, after the strange sexual fetish stuff brouhaha...and the obviously pushed up implants debacle at the CMA's, will her appearence at the AMA's be as demure as the CNN awards...or will she simply skip the red carpet this time altogether and not take any chances? Or will the silicone or saline make another appearance?

maclen said...

Well, in a follow up to my query if kidman will lay low after her recent PR BS blunders at the AMA's tonight...I seem to notice that kidman skipped the CNN heroes presentation "arrivals" on the red carpet...

http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?EventId=93144133&EditorialProduct=Entertainment#2

" CA: 3rd Annual "CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute" - Arrivals "

..and is also suspiciously absent from the "backstage and audience" photo ops at gettyImages...

http://www.gettyimages.com/Search/Search.aspx?EventId=93227609&EditorialProduct=Entertainment

" CA: 2009 CNN Heroes Awards - Backstage and Audience "

...it would seem kidman simply showed up...walked onstage to present....and hightailed it out the joint! Kind of get the feeling she cant wait til this disastrous promo, for a minor and as of yet, disastrous performance in the film...is almost over? Now as to the AMA's? I get the feeling since cletus is nominated and also performing...she wont pass up the opportunity to attempt to "upstage" the orb on the red carpet...but we shall see!

"Incorrect maclen!"

Ha! Obvious timtam, you are lacking in comprehensive skills. That photo of kidman posing with the woman...the recipient of the "hero" award...was obviously taken immediately after kidman presented it to her! This one photo in no way addresses the point of my last comment...

maclen said...
"I seem to notice that kidman skipped the CNN heroes presentation "arrivals" on the red carpet"..."..and is also suspiciously absent from the "backstage and audience" photo ops at gettyImages"...

...I have no doubt that after this one "after presentation on the award" press photo...kidman hightailed it out of the joint!

....and what!? Timtam, that was sure one lame ass SHORT comment! YOu dont have anything to say about how you NKUSERS "modified'..."altered"..."changed" their "drunken kidman" photos in the thread...after the fact...when I made the point of commenting how you NKusers were ashamed of her rather "dizzy and bumbling" performance?! Yes, timtam, you stay away now, do not mess with the big leagues! I realize how "fragile" the kidman fandom is these days! HA!

"Now as to the AMA's? I get the feeling since cletus is nominated and also performing...she wont pass up the opportunity to attempt to "upstage" the orb on the red carpet...but we shall see!"

Yes, kidman is beyond "desperate."

maclen said...

So...I flipped onto the AMA's once the Simpson's ended...and caught some of the orb's performance..."Kiss a girl?"

I wanna kiss a girl
I wanna hold her tight
And maybe make a little magic in the moonlight

Don't wanna go too far
Just to take it slow
But I shouldn't be lonely in this big ol' world
I wanna kiss a girl

...alrighty...(previously unknown "jonas brother" outtake!)...don't sprain that 42 yr old emotionally stunted mentality! Well, cletus won the "online fansie poll" AMA award? Impressive? No...what would impress me is, once again, if the online fansies could "robo buy" his current cd to platinum...and not simply "robo vote"...ie: "tossing their cookies!"... in an online poll! Now that would be impressive!

maclen said...

...PS...

So, in this edition of "Late Night Musings" ...just a few words... a "punctuation, if you will... to the faithful fansies of one...cletus orb. Take heed and note...as you regale yourselves and pat your own backs for "tossing your cookies" and awarding the orb an "online" award...that you never fail to note that at every little morsel of triumph, as small and as infrequent as they now come in his overall decline...at no time will kidman ever fail to attempt to steal his "moment in the sun"...or will ever again be allowed to bathe in that illumination known as the "limelight" without the pall of kidman's ever more desperate and shameless attention mongering. For take heed...and attempt to enlighten yourselves to the state that the orb now finds himself in...and recall my words...when kidman went "stag" to the CNN hero presentations, minus the orb, she skipped the "arrivals" and "backstage and audience" photo ops...but when orb "should" have been the focus at the A(MUSIC)A's as a nominee and a performer, it will be kidman who will get his limelight press in her obvious play and manipulation of the red carpet for that already tired and failed "is she really pregnant this time?" game! And the news will be, faithful orb fanies...truly, "NICOLE KIDMAN.... and friend" at the AMA's!

I thought this quote below was apt ... from the site 'tinyurl' posted by UM:


November 22, 2009 10:16 PM
Posted by: Anonymous

"I don't care how graceful she is or what hell she went through with Tom. First, she's not a victim. She married him, knowing what he was. Second, grace does not make you anymore deserving of fame than pregnancy. She's always been fake, and self involved. And she can act a lady all she wants, but it's obvious she isn't if you watch her past, her crappy movies, and her current obsession with acting all "young and sweet" (which she is neither) for the cameras."


touche!

hoosierlady said...

Go to NKU and look, timtam, those were posted days ago. Maclen was referencing the red carpet and the backstage and audience photo ops,

gee, get with the program, we know she changes with the wind, but it really isn't THAT hard to keep up.

The belly cradle is another done to death move. I can't believe cletus won something, was anyone else nominated?

dontlikethepez said...

I don't know how KU managed to pull this one out and win actually. Even as a KU fan, I would still have given that one to Jason Aldean any day!! At this point of KU's deceptive life, he doesn't deserve any award except for maybe "Jackass of the Year" thanks to his "baby girl"...um, maybe that's the problem, she needs to grow the hell up!

That's all that's needed. You are way out of your league maclen and you know it. Blabbering on and on about nothing does not an expert make.
