Keith Urban Needs Some Help!

If you feel up to it, say a little prayer for Keith Urban. He is going to need some help from a higher power because he will be dealing with Nicole after one of the worst weeks she has had in the public life. Why should we feel sorry for Keith, he made his bed didn't he?

Yes, he did, but this week while Kidman was making one blunder after another in her PR for Nine, Keith was having a great week in the homeland. He was getting some of the best reviews ever on this tour. He seems quite happy and quite content with what he is doing on the stage. None of that matters because it’s always all about Nicole; and to say she stumbled is quite an understatement.

First was the uneven interview with Meredith Viera on the Today show. Kidman appeared discombobulated by very simple questions that were asked. She would disagree with what Viera asked then she would answer with an almost word-for-word rewind of what she was asked. Second was her interview with the BBC. Kidman was happy to talk about the movie, her life and even her one true love, but bring up the topic of Scientology and she runs faster then Keith does when Kidman is naked. Third she stormed out of an interview after ten minutes that was originally scheduled for thirty minutes; she dumped on the homeland saying that she can't live in Sydney because they won't leave her alone. Gee, Nicole don't tell them that you are there. This could solve some of your issues, but it was a crappy thing to do to your husband while he is going back home to play for his toughest audience. And to put salt in this wound she said that they have to stay in Nashville because Keith couldn't make it in Oz as Country Music wasn't that popular in the homeland. Not a smart thing to say. Then Kidman was on Larry King. While there were six other people there Kidman seemed dazed by it all and answered him in sing-song phrases that made good sound bites, but were insignificant answers. Speaking of answers, Kidman couldn't really say where her daughter was; when asked on the red carpet in LA and New York Kidman said she was with friends and family and then she said Keith's family and then she said she was with her. Interesting that Kidman also admitted that she and Keith live in two houses in Nashville. Finally her clothing choices were not terrible; however, her make up was horrible in both LA and NYC. But, it made the news!

Now that she had full press coverage for her arrival in Oz, no doubt she will be seen here and there with her youngest daughter and her family. She does have a movie to promote, don’t you know.

Please think of what Keith will have to do in the coming weeks. Give up his press, his tour and be part of the power couple again. She will grab at her stomach and hold his hand and of course he will condescend to her. Someday he might learn he no longer needs her. We would prefer that she just go hang out on her farm, combing her alpacas' eyelashes. We could all use the break, Keith most of all.

Jtk well said.
UM you are clutching at straws. Keith has just finished a fabulous, succesful tour with great reviews from both fans and the press.
He's very happy in his personal life and so is NIcole. They've both been doing this for a long time, any minor glitch she may have encountered is no big deal.
He's at the top of his game, happy and in love.
With a beautiful little girl to boot!
Your ramblings however are just sounding more and more desperate

Yes, to say that kidman just had the worst promo stint for a film in the past few weeks...well...since ever, is no overstatement! And for me, who considers "team kidman" to be absolutely inept...after the past few pitiful weeks, I must consider re tagging them "catastrophic team kidman!" As for cletus...and his "rebranded" kidman-esque country jingles...and his future subpar "barely" gold albums...I hope he is "comfortable" with the moniker, Mr. nicole kidman...that's all he'll be left with. So, it'll be off to the next live gig for the predictible and unspontanious cletus "Who's got the best seats now!" orb, and to the next random alley or street for a wayword film set for kidman...and less people will even notice or even care!

dear jtk, how about an intelligent answer ... if Urban Myth chooses this 'life', then so be it; in much the same way as the Urbans choose a public 'life'; that which is open to scrutiny. The trouble with public people is that they want to have it all ... the fame and that we don't have and the anonimity that we do ... it is one or the other, not both ... and when the famous want them both; there will you find the conundrum ... and the interesting private and public debates!

Except of course for those whose contributions seem to only consist of "you're a hater" or "get a life".

and now a few rambling unconnected lazy Sunday comments from someone who doesn't have a life and must thus be dead ...

'Nine': Penelope Cruz said she was in rehearsals for 3 months before shooting. Obviously Nicole did not do much rehearsing as she has said she only shot for two weeks, (in response to questions re going back to work so soon after childbirth; and at such times also fails to include the time spent on the Rabbit Hole shoot, and of course the endless various PR and marketing stints) ... and also bragged that she had not been required to audition for the role. These may be clues as to why her dance scenes ended up on the cutting room floor. Another look at Moulin Rouge without the campy distractions will be another clue. I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who cringes at NK's singing in the film, and even more so, her dreadful accent ... and fake hair and pretend bosom. Now, more intriguingly, when told in an interview that the film is full of sex-bombshells; she says: "oh no, not me or Judy or Sofia" ... and also, when told that she plays an icon of a movie star and is reminded that that is what she is in real life (an icon of a movie star, not an icon, that is), she implausibly says: "oh no" ... I'm not an icon, Sofia Loren is ... not me". What does Nicole not 'get'?? Did she not understand her role??? Is that why she is unconvincing?? What did she think she was playing? Even if she didn't read the script; surely she knew what her role/character was?? This is her double standard: doing one thing, but faux-innocently denying it all. She really is a contradictive mess and is ending up being neither one thing nor the other: neither young, neither old; neither city, neither country; neither sexy, neither androgynous - but always something (or nothing) vaguely in between ...

She says: "I am not so much in the fast lane anymore" ... who is she fooling??? Is she hoping to convince herself just by saying it – as she says: “once it is written, people think it is real”. She continually says she "lives on a farm", "Sunday lives on a farm" ... that is an outright lie! They live in a townhouse in Nashville (in between constant globe-trotting) ... and probably just pop out to the farm now and again to wink at the Alpaca's ... she has admitted that the veges are not doing so well anymore ... well, dear, they won't if they are not tended! When an interviewer asked her recently how she and Keith manage to be together she said that when he is touring, it means for her “no movie”. Uh, Nicole, when is that going to happen????? At least stop the BS, please: the public is not imbecilic.
Speaking of accents, I notice too that when she talks normally, she has a strong Aussie accent, but slips in words with an American accent, esp when she says the word 'farrrm'. (Just to embellish the Southern thing, I suppose).

I thought her response in the BBC interview about Scientology was interesting: “If I am going to do an expose about myself, then OK, but not now; I want to talk about Nine”, which she says she joined because it was like being asked to a party. She needed to belong and to ‘be in a musical’, and not because the part in itself had something important for her to contribute tot he world; important enough for her to transcend the “non-negotiable priority” that is her “baby girl” and “family time”.
Sunday (the child). When do mothers stop calling their child a ‘baby’. And has anyone noticed that Keith is never seen holding the child – even now when she arrived in Sydney after a deal-breaking absence. Methinks Nicole is hanging on to that child for dear life as it is becoming the one thing she can be sure will be there for her when all else fades away; as it seemingly is. I would LOVE to be a fly on her wall at home to see how much she smiles away from the witness of the world.

To commenter Joy: re your comment in the other thread: you say “Nicole is only making the most of what she’s got.” That is untrue as she is not happy with the mouth she had (or rather, the exposure of gum when smiling), nor the body or hair she had and has clearly and undeniably taken steps to alter them; actually making things worse, in my humble opinion.

mmm ... interesting that over at NKU, all the papparazzi threads have been moved to the 'private' section of the site ... the shots of 'the reunion', Sunday and gramps, and some taken today of Nic and Sun visiting Antonia ... wonder if it is an instruction from above or that they are noticing other websites are discussing NKU's threads ... and speaking of which ... it is really gratifying for me to see, after endlessly reading the NKU fansies always (disrespectfully toward others) saying that Nicole is ALWAYS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST ON THE RED CARPET, ANYWHERE ... that NO-ONE comes close to her always PERFECT GORGEOUS style and get-up, only to have Vogue include her only 3 times over a ten year period, for the voting for the 'most stylish woman of the decade'. VOGUE!!!


Wonder if Nicole popped up to Brisbane last night for Keith's final show of his tour ... the most special of all of them ... in his most emotional of places of all ... and wouldn't you be staying with him all day Sunday after being apart for so long and it being the first day of their holiday away from the crowds and the world .. and Sunday being their most 'blissful' and 'favourite' day??? Maybe the pap shots of Nic out and about without Keith today would have posed too many questions.

ok jtk ... now I'll go and get a life ... mmm, where shall I look?

Please, their not a "power couple". Kidman's career has been over since 07'. Other than Nine, which was probably a preplacment for giving up the Reader, has she been offered any films in the last two years? And for all the great reviews, has it helped sell Keith's CD? They can do daily photo ops, which the public probably pays little attention to anyway because they are in fact a boring middle aged couple. But all the photos and media hype has done nothing to sell his CD's or tickets to her flops. Your right, we could all use a break.

The answer to that is absolutely YES, abc...as I proved back when I pointed out how those fansies were not "comfortable" discussing kidman's plainly obvious new boob job which was ridiculously "displayed" at the CMA's last month...someone posted a new thread on the "public" section, and they were imediately informed that a "CMA discussion" thread was already posted in the "private members only" section...and "why dont you post "pics" in there"...(hint hint wink wink!) So I pointed out that they were attempting to rustle all disscussion of the CMA's OUT of the "public" forum out of shear "embarrassment" over that boob kidman! Well, then obvious NKUser "timtam" appeared to refute my comments...that it was only because the CMA's was a "cletus" subject, and shouldnt be on the kidman section! But to which I then pointed out that a "BMA awards" thread was already, and still on the kidman public section, with no problems! And then, my FAVORITE part...when kidman had her "drunken public staggering hobo" imitation and paps photos came out, of course I immediately pointed out that the NKUsers had not yet posted them on their site...they posted the earlier in the day "business meeting" photos....and the next morning "workout photos"..but not the "drunken and staggering" photos! So what did those ridiculous morons do? They simply copied a couple of comments about the "drunken" photos posted in the "private section" days earlier and pasted them at the beginning of a "public" thread...to make it APPEAR as if they had posted those pics before I ridiculed them for being ashamed of the pathetic kidman! So, it is not surprising they are now, more and more, moving discussions to the "private" section...and as kidman is now a constant grotesque and ridiculous JOKE punch line...it wouldnt surprise me if pretty soon that entire fansie site goes all "private"...all the time! OUT OF SHEAR SHAME AND EMBARRASSMENT!

Yes, mikki, kidman's "cavalcade of circus tours"...off to grandads house...to sis' house...all for the benefit of those "hated" aussie paps doesnt change that they are so "over!" And not at all surprised that the orb's oz tour is of little interest to kidman!

Maclen, his tour doesn't interest her because theres nothing in it for her. The focus is on HIM. If being Mrs. Keith Urban was meant to enhance her career its failed miserably. Shes a nobody in the Country Music Industry. The fans are interested in the Country artists. Keith's wife, living the simple life down on the farm has done nothing but erode her image as a movie star. Does she really need regular visits to her plastic surgeon for her trips to Starbucks and Target? As Joan Crawford once said, "if you want to see the girl next door, then go next door." Kidman should have married someone in the film industry. Maybe one of those directors she admires so much. Then maybe she would have been able to keep her career going.
Now its Sunday who is keeping her from working. She can't bare to be away from her, its too hard to travel with her, so Kidman is just turning down all the movie roles to stay in Nashville to be with her. Yeah right. What movie roles?
