MusiCares - A Tale of Two Keith Urbans



These photos are from the MusiCares event honoring Neil Young. Who does Keith appear to be happier to be around... his peers, or his wife?

HA! Well, in the first pic as kidman is speaking, even in that sideview of the orb's face, you can clearly see by the expression and his open and gaping mouth, his eyes are clearly glazing over! And in the second pic, orb is clearly attempting to pull kidman AWAY from the photographers! But kidman isnt having any of that... see how she is even grabbing at the edge of the doorway to keep from being pulled back. And, the orb is clearly facing the other way...but kidman wants those close ups from those papparatz! "I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. Demille!"

OH come on. Anyone can pick and choose photos. There are plenty of him smiling when he's with his wife.
This is pathetic, even for you.

As they say: ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’.

This is my take on the whole picture. The picture of Nicole looking annoyed, or rather, doing something other than grinning, (which she does in every other picture), while Keith looks on in a shocked fashion, as in ‘what’s wrong babygirl?’, is taken after Keith performed on stage. There is not a single pic of Nic on her own or talking to anyone while Keith is away doing his thing ... and she probably hated that; methinks he was gone just a little too long for her liking - (pics of him alone chatting to various other people while he is in his performing plaid shirt). She probably doesn’t really like his grunge look either – just my opinion.

Since his connection to her, he has zoomed right up into the A-list stratosphere and we now see HIM connecting with the likes of Clooney, and the hard rock world where he really wants to be, etc – being more of a star than her. Kindov like what happened to her when she hooked up with Cruise. We can recall those pics of her sulking when the crowd was calling out for Tom Tom Tom. She has pretty much admitted as much.

I think that when Keith performs, NK sees that music is his greatest undying love of all and is when he really is in his element, and which makes her second fiddle, or merely arm candy – something I can be sure she would not like at all; having gotten used to being the centre of attention – THE star ... always the focus in headlines even at his gigs and in his world. I think, ironically, she may be jealous of Keith, and with her own career less than spectacular right now, I do believe she is not a happy camper behind the smiles and public persona. I recall Brooke Shields saying after she had her first child that she was utterly miserable, but shoved on the pearls, plastered a smile on her face and the world thought she was SO happy – while she was ‘dying inside’.

So, in as much as we can’t conclusively read into a picture where she is looking sulky, so too, can we not jump to conclusions that she is SO happy because she is beaming like the cat who got the milk in other pictures.

There is, however, no harm in speculating.

There is no doubt that Keith is happiest when making music. He is in his element at these events, when he can be himself, and talk music with his peers...where he can meet his idols.

I'm not saying he is miserable with NK, but when he's with her at HER events, he looks out of place and his smiles appear forced. But I do think he likes being there, mixing with those famous people.

Tara said...

oh he is a fameho- but I think he is more realistic about those people

I must say though, it is an absolutely gorgeous dress!! I certainly am envious of her being able to wear such gorgeous clothes: most of the time - when the stylist gets it right.

maclen said...

There has been more than a few photos at one single event where kidman doesnt look like a "happy camper"...there has been a few other occasions where kidman looks out of it...like this occasion back in Dec while in Oz...

http://nicole-kidman-journey.blogspot.com/2009/12/kurbans-new-investment-property.html

...and it is telling kidman looks to be a in rather "snitty" and "annoyed" mood...(that less than "adoring" or "pleasant" look she shoots at little sunry could give you chills if you were unaware that it was her own daughter!)...when it is clear kidman is UNAWARE that the paparatz are snapping! The more recent pics here, at the "Haiti Relief Brunch Hosted By Dir. Paul Haggis", courtesy of my pals at NKU:

http://www.nicolekidmanunited.invisionzone.com/index.php?s=8f7be2c87b0651fd9af45a8ebd503133&showtopic=12379

...kidman looks rather "distraught" and even "disheveled"...and again, she is clearly unaware the paps are snapping away. And lets not forget the "mystery' of why the NKUsers pulled the photos of kidman leaving the fertility clinic...seems someone is a little sensitive about it! And again, as the that old addage says, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And yeah, a picture may be worth a thousand words...and I would submit, that is is a far more delicate state to be in to always expect the "best"...than it is to always expect the "worst"...ESPECIALLY when your speaking of Lalaland careers...or relationships!

"oh he is a fameho- but I think he is more realistic about those people

Yes, Tara, orb has clearly adjusted and slipped in comfortably into true "fameho-dom" under the tutelage of a true pro. And very perceptive catch on kidman's very "swifty" look here! Seems orb has swift of the brain in music by releasing a rather mediocre selling tween pop attempt with Defying Sales...kidman's trying to channel swift's "juliet" image...

maclen said...

..PS...

...just to follow up your point in the last thread Tara, I just recalled that carrie underwood also usually sports that very short skirt/dress look, as well as swift. It'll be interesting to note if kidman walks the Grammy red carpet tonight...trying to pull of a "younger hipper" look...she certaily went with a "hippier" look at the SAGs! Recall she skipped the GOlden globes and SAG awards red carpet. Is it time for her to reappear on the carpet?

maclen said...

So...ok...initial grammy reactions...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/96305725/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...why is orb posing next to a telephone pole? Ha! Well, speaking of swifty....

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/96305790/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...the barely out of her teens swift is curvyer...and wears her dress alot better...kidman clearly loses in a comparison.

...but...

http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/96305692/Getty-Images-Entertainment

...to be honest, kidman does have the shape of a teen...to bad it's the shape of a teenage boy! That anorexic diet and her uber work out regime does not flatter her.

maclen said...

...wow...just saw orb and kidman talking to seacrest on E!...can anyone say...stiff as mannequins?...awkward as a couple of 4 yr olds? Kidman spoke one word..."PRADA". Apparently, orb simply brought a cardboard cut out of kidman! Oh and BAD LUCK for the two stiffs...taylor swift was immediately next to speak with seacrest...swift had twice as much...charm...charisma...personality and grace than orb and kidman combined! Wow....

maclen said...

...so, the grammy results...just as I surmissed in the previous thread, orb got his "obligatory" award...as a reward from the grammy committee for his "help" last year during the Brown/rhianna controversary stand in... and for the usual Country vocal perf! And since it was presented at the Pre-telecast presentation, orb didnt get to perform on the telecast...and obviously swift who won a total of 4 awards total, sang two songs! Yeah, dont believe that they DONT know who won before the envelopes are opened! And on another note, to once again point out another reason why swift sings two songs and wins 4 awards...swift actually showed up to the NON telecasted pre-telecast grammy awards presentation to pick up her two awards, while the orb doesnt bother to show...even though he wins one...and that's because it isnt filmed..and kidman is just not feeling that scene man!

The new poll on NK's Journey shows that people are liking Nic's return to red hair and curls. Either she reads the blogs or her new agent is giving her some advice: cut out the goddam awful blonde look and botox and you may look younger. She does look good here in these pictures even if Keith seems pre-occupied. I am sure, like most husbands, he would rather hang out with his mates.

I was thinking, it would good if Keith could get a makeover with his hair too, like his wife. Keith, may I help you rip off that hair piece, and then give you a no.1 all over on what hair isleft. You'd look sexy with a shaved head.

Keith needs a new look to match the wife - just my opinion.

maclen said...

..so...for my final comment tonight...it's....a...E-O'-L-N-M's!!

...may as well continue the swifty theme... ramming into and submerging the orb's tugboat...but first a follow up to inept team kidman's...and kidman's new management handling...just noticed that that "offical" video of the "dancing monkey and orban grinder" video posted last week on youtube at that LA OZfest, or whatever...only has about 64k views...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B30SgexPnhY

...not exactly, "viral!" Now back to swifty...seems over at orb's youtube channel, the video of swift "pranking" orb and band on tour is still the most viewed...with just over 1 mil views, compared to orb's music video for "Sweet Thing" with 649k views...

http://www.youtube.com/user/keithurban#p/u

...and...dont even ask how many views the very lame copycat prank "orb & band prank sugarland" youtube video has now gotten! OK I tell...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vplx6ag-Cgs&feature=PlayList&p=D5A2D6979C5B5C52&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=46

...1,339....yeah, that's one thousand three hundred and nine views. The fact is no matter how many grammys the orb can slowly collect...or how many extra appearences he can now make at the film industry "prom shows" through kidman...he still has an image problem...with his fans who once bought his cds in the millions...and the fewer remaining who now only buy them in the 100k's...the fact is the orb is "stuck in a rut"...and he should "smell a rat"...and all based on "stuff I rit!"

yeah, Choice, I'd say it was a slightly "audurn" color...but tending on the mousey dirty brown side. But as you can see from this pic from the Grammys, the "blonde" is creeping back! It's her "Cruella De Vil' look!

http://www.laineygossip.com/pics/kidman%20grammys%2001feb10%2002.jpg

...so on the subject of lainey...seems lainey also noticed the "awkward" kidman...

http://www.laineygossip.com/Nicole_Kidman_and_Keith_Urban_at_Grammy_Awards_2010_.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0

Grammy Third Lip

"Oh but she was awkward on the carpet, wasn’t she? She was awkward with Seacrest, she was awkward down the line, Duana remarked that Granny looked positively terrified. Like get me away from these music hooligans, will they punch me in the botox?"

It's clear with her skipping alot of the redcarpets, she's pretty "shaky" these days. What with the agony of her dead film career, and her terrible terrible promo of Nine back in NOvember...what with the "makeup debacle" and the pushed up boob job spectacle...she has been red carpet "traumatized!"

maclen said...

..ps...so about that E! interview...seacreast talking to a couple of wooden stiffs...

http://www.youtube.com/user/EEntertainment#p/search

...orb interview...with orb holding up the cardboard cut out of kidman...starts at the 12:37 point of the video. Kidman DOES seem afraid of seacreast...or that he will ask her a question!

Choice said...

You're not wrong Maclen, Niccy looked very uncomfortable on the red carpet. When Ryan made reference to the singing together crap, she looked like she had no idea what her was referring to. Goes to show, she must have been high as a kite during that Sonny and Cher performance.

"I'm so shy".

maclen said...

So, I just noticed that the Oscar noms are going to be announced tommorrow...and here is kidman putting out an early "press release"..you know a "leak" that she MAY not be at this years Oscar awards...because, you know Nine is SO gonna get a boatload of noms!

http://showbiz411.blogs.thr.com/2010/02/01/nicole-kidman-keith-urban-chill-at-grammy-backstage/

"Nicole also told me there’s a chance she won’t be at the Academy Awards on March 7. “It’s my mom’s 70th birthday, so we may be with her. We love mom!”"

So, you see everybody, she wants you to know that if she ISNT at the Oscars...it's because she is with her mommy...and not because Nine was a complete critical and box office flop! You see, she wouldnt want anyone to think she's not at the Awards because she is a failure...she just loves her mommy! This is called a pre-arranged, pre-conceived "press release." And it is designed to attempt to head off and wrangle in "negative buzz" I know precisely why kidman would leak info like this to a brown-nosing parasite like friedman. Friedman hopes for future leaks from kidman. And kidman would like to "cushion" all the signs of her dead career. And you do recall this "resurfaced" story dont you from last week?

X17 XCLUSIVE - Nicole Kidman Visits A Fertility Clinic!

...this is to presumably explain why she may not make..or even have a movie released this year. It's called "plausible deniablity!" To deny her career is over!

maclen said...

...ps...

...HA! I just had such a hilarious notion, that I had to post it! So, when kidman is reportedly quoted as saying...

"Nicole also told me there’s a chance she won’t be at the Academy Awards on March 7. “It’s my mom’s 70th birthday, so we may be with her. We love mom!”

...so...if kidman does in fact attend this years Oscars...will it mean that she DOESN'T love her mom?! HA! Mommy kidman better hope kidman doesnt attend the Oscars!!

Oh dear, does that mean another visit down under .... so soon?
