Love this photo:

Keith: "I did put the seat down after I finished"

Nicole: "No little man, you didn't! That is the 8th time this week I have had to put it down before using it!"

maclen said...

Yes, this is moments after orb lost out to swifty for the Country Album grammy...and kidman is giving orb THAT look...and orb is about to hang his head in shame...

abc said...

wow, there is so much in that body language!!!

While I'll be the first to compliment NK when she looks good, I have to say this outfit is just ghastly - does NOTHING for her ... and the hair is awful ... why can't she stick to what looks good on her ... she clearly struck a winner with the curly red look of late ... why go and change it up again???? she is such a *%$"£*& idiot, really!
Angie, Bullock, Streep, Blanchett, Roberts, Witherspoon, Watts, Theron, Moore, ... all are happy to regularly wear their normal locks ... but then I guess, their hair isn't 'fried' like NK's. Or they don't have to rely on the red carpet being the 'roles' of their lives.

I am sorry, but i can't help getting pee'd off with this giant of nothingness ... just a reaction against the world thinking looks are everything! (and it is not as tho I don't have any!)

I am not at all surprised she wants to skip the Oscars .... must be starting to get really REALLY embarassing for her now to go out in public. Yes, Nicole, why don't you just go and hide your swollen head in shame. Just go away. PLEASE!!!! got to your mom, who, surprise surprise, you "love" ... what a convenient bloody excuse, hey!

JUST GO AWAY NICOLE KIDMAN ... WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF YOU. SHUT UP (the drivel) AND GO AWAY AND STAY AWAY!!!! PRETTY PLEASE!!!!

mac,

You sure this was just after he'd lost to Taylor? Looks like it could also be just after he had the temerity to win one -- leaving his loving wife in the dust, award-wise.

And, damn, right in front of a pap she pulled this! Could she be any more obvious?

Now that Penelope has been nominated and Nicole ignored by her peers for the Oscar, no doubt we'll be seeing more public cold shoulder from Madame X to her husband. His award collection is much more impressive than hers. (Can't wait for Oscar day, when she HAS to show up.)

Let's see: she spent weeks, newly post-birth, to train in her own home for a dance number that ended up on the cutting-room floor. She also sang, out of her range, for a soundtrack song that got minimal notice and few good reviews. She was taken to task for not having the right body type for NINE's character, and just generally for being forgettable.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving actor. May she continue to crash and burn.

Tara said...

Can we leave now?
- oh Nic I want to be here and watch this
I want to leave


actually I think this might have been after they were in the green room and some gal tried to pick Keith up-

His pants look like they hurt. He needs to go back to his torn jeans and leather jackets wheere he at least looked comfortable.

"mac,

Yeah, clearly kidman was getting very impatient and annoyed...it's bad enough that at her industry proms her film was completely ignored...despite, and not unlike the noms Nine got at the Globes and SAGs, I predict the same outcome at the Oscars!...there are alot of broken relationships that are due to "career" jealousy...especially in the "image obbsessed" lalaland. And again, kidman is having alot of "temperamental" papparatz shots coming out lately...who cannot the recall the "tipsy public drunken bum" imitation from last Nov? And yes, that friedman press release was a complete hack job! Trying to give kidman cover for her utter failure...and orb dramatically refusing a "come on" from a groupie at a post Grammy party? Whoa, yes such a fairlytale couple!

joy said...

You DID see the one photo right around the time of this picture where he kissed her on the cheek very lovingly, right? But I guess that one was staged for the cameras. Really, these are human beings, NOT perfect creatures who make no mistakes. They basically don't live differently than we do. When all is said & done they have normal lives that we don't see. They are normal people just in the spotlight a lot.

We aren't there, we don't know what was done or said from a few pictures. She may have been cold and that's why she folded her arms that way. I don't think they would air their "dirty laundry" in public at a major event being televised to millions with photographers everywhere. But of course that's just my opinion.

I don't have the inside track and I'm sure very few people do. The ones that do KNOW the truth I'm sure they wouldn't talk about it.

Laura said...

Why do you guys hate Keith so much? I don't think he's a fame whore like she may be. And I think he's a good guy. He's hot and his music still rocks. But I hate that he is ALWAYS with her. And whenever he's talked about in the tabloids or something he's referred to as "Nicole Kidman's husband" or "Mr. Nicole Kidman." She didn't make him famous. His talent and hard work made him famous. And I absolutely CANNOT STAND the fact that I can't type "Keith Urban" into google images without a picture of her right next to him! So annoying. He's still gorgeous though. :)

kfroeba said...

I see Keith with his arm casually draped around his wife's body, intently listening to something incredulous, he is obviously rapt, not defensive.

It could be as simple as amazing gossip being shared or the retelling of something viewed that was distasteful.

Neither of them would discuss anything personal a foot in front of strangers.

I watched the show, Urban won and is seated front row, obviously he is as A list as Kidman who is also always seated front row.

PS: Choice - People who are well brought up don't have "seat" issues EVER. We know that the LID is always closed before depressing the lever and remains that way.

Choice said...

Hey guys,

You have to check out this hilarious Nicole Kidman facebook page. The person is trying to present it as if it is really Kidman. Kidman asks people to vote for her as the sexiest woman alive. Actually, maybe it is Kidman then. Another PR stunt? :

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kidman-Nicole/70469365838

abc said...

Nice try, Joy!!

Your comment "They basically don't live differently than we do" makes me wonder what planet you are from??? hello??

And no, she is NOT "cold". Grammy Granny's body language screams 'I don't want anything to do with you right now'. And he looks mortified. She is being petulant, probably because she never got the "I love you so much babygirl" shoutout and wants to leave the place - but HAS to stay because he is going to perform and all the attention will be on him and not her.

Probably when they realised they were being photographed they quickly kissed to let us know that all is well in Kunkland. I do NOT believe that all is well in Kunkland and only time will tell. One day, Keith, like Tom, will tire of his spoiled Sydney North Shore princess. Just like most of the rest of us have.

These people, Joy, do NOT have "normal lives". You are only fooling yourself.

hoosierlady said...

...and orb dramatically refusing a "come on" from a groupie at a post Grammy party?

wonder how much that cost!

And yes, that friedman press release was a complete hack job!

I missed this, what happened?

Joy said. . . They are normal people just in the spotlight a lot.

I've raised two boys to noble manhood without any form of physical punishment, but I truly want to slap you shitless.

abc said...

yes, hoosierlady, a real hack job as you say ... I mean, how many people report on someone eating a bit of meat and saying, 'try this, it is delicious' ... geez, her PR is getting desperate ... all just a bit too forced ...

maclen said...

"And yes, that friedman press release was a complete hack job!

Hoosier, I posted that friedman piece in the previous thread, it's here...

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

Nicole Kidman, Keith Urban Chill at Grammy Backstage

...where friedman recounts his "personal" encounters with orb and kidman...in which he proclaims that "Nicole Kidman couldn’t have looked better or had a nicer time at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards....amoung other very fluffy and fawning tales...he passes on kidman's "press release" that she MAY not be at the Oscars...because she may spend it with her mommy...and how kidman is EATING beef and how he should really trying it...and the topper, friedman proclaims..."I’ll tell you about Keith Urban. He’s a rising superstar. Like Rob Thomas, John Mayer, John Legend and a few others, he’s in the next generation of rock stars"...orb is a "RISING" superstar? Obviously friedman has no idea who orb even is! And also recounted this tidbit of hilarity...

"He doesn’t know I saw this, but while we were talking and eating, and while Nicole had gone to fetch a plate of desserts, a woman came up and tried hitting on Urban very aggressively.

“Can’t I do that?” she said. It was so rock-and-roll.

Urban stood from the stool he’d been sitting on, and went cold.

“No you may not,” he declared, upbraiding the stranger. “I am married!”

He’s a keeper.


... Ha! Get this...friedman "claims" that "He (Orb) doesn’t know I SAW this," in the same sentence where he says it happened while they were "talking and eating"...friedman is a true idiot! I think I saw this scene in the film "This is Spinal Tap!" It is sheer satire...satire on actual reality!

Nicole: "No little man, you didn't! That is the 8th time this week I have had to put it down before using it!"

I respectfully disagree with Choice. I suspect Nikki NEVER puts the seat down.

Doesn't have to.

Keith, however, may be another story...

That was beautiful. Slick as snot, laid it in like butter. . .

Thank you A440-you are today's hero in my book!

"""""I've raised two boys to noble manhood without any form of physical punishment, but I truly want to slap you shitless.""""""

Well, that was totally uncalled for. I honestly think that unless you walk in their shoes & live their lives you don't have a clue. When all is said & done they are normal people with normal insecurities & normal self-esteem issues just like all of us & YES normal lives. Just because they are in a different tax bracket & because their private lives become public almost daily doesn't mean they aren't normal human beings.

No matter what you think of Keith or Nicole I'm sure they lose no sleep over it. They are living a committed marriage, raising their children & that's what is the most important.

MANY years from now when they are still happily married, enjoying their children as adults & remembering all of these special days it will be great to see that just because their occupations made them famous that they lived as normal a life as possible.

Since when do they have "children" together that they are raising???

Tom is raising the adopted kids and Sonny is being raised by the nanny

Excellent words ABC. Thanks to forums like this for allowing us to get these things off our chests.

abc said...

Oh Joy, how deluded you are!!

How can you say they are ‘normal’; meaning they lead normal lives. (Oxford dictionary: ‘normal’ = conforming to standard, regular, usual, typical). Yes, I will agree with you that they are the same as us in that they have a face, legs, arms, ears and blood etc, HOWEVER, their psyche and their energy is different ... not abnormal, but different. Their lifestyle is way different. They live differently in the world to the way we do; why do you think every little kid dreams of being RICH&FAMOUS: huh?? to take them away from the kind of ‘dull’ (‘normal’) lives that their parents and friends (like us) lead; that we who are not rich and famous lead. The rich and famous are maybe 3% of the world’s population thus they are in the minority as against the ‘regular’ majority who lead ‘normal’ everyday kindov lives.

They want to escape the kind of life where you have to do your own dishes, cook your own food, do your own ‘management, bookings, reservations & bill paying etc, worry about retirement, buy your own clothes, shoes, jewellery&watches, cosmetics&scents&surgery, hair, & primping, pay for your own holidays&functions, raise your children yourself, drive & PARK your own car, stand in queues, be ignored by the world at large, have no personal security team, and no PR to cover up your blunders, etc etc etc. That is a ‘normal’ life! Not a life where a village of people are required for you to ‘operate’ in the world. Living in a house (sorry, houses) the size of a hotel, with 5 or 6 stars, with an expense account equivalent to the GDP of Madagascar or Sri Lanka!

That is why Keith makes such an effort to “connect” (i.e. shake hands with) his fans ... the person in the street who does not have what he has (the trappings of fame, not necessarily the talent) ... however, people nearly faint when they touch him ... is that ‘normal’? Nicole is now trying to make an effort to seem ‘normal’, by actually talking to those around her, letting us know she eats; beef ... woo hoo, Nicole! Why suddenly after thousands of award ceremonies does she comment that it is nice to ‘hang’ at the after party? Because, with Keith at least, she is starting to get a feel for the masses around her that usually she just ignores. She is trying to crack her ice-maiden image though she is not fooling us. She has absolutely no idea what a ‘normal’ person is as she has lived in a surreal world since she was a teen – she is way out of touch. While Keith at least makes an attempt to let the ordinary folk feel special too, with Nicole it is about us not thinking that she is a snob; which of course, she is. She is a Sydney North Shore Princess; and she can’t change that, no matter who she marries and despite her transparent attempts at humbleness.

And Joy, they are not “raising children”. They have one child and the nanny is raising it while they gallivant around the awards circuit, flaunting their ‘love’ and being a walking billboard for fashion and shoe designers, jewellers, watchmakers and star hairdressers. Nicole told us that after a few weeks of “feeding that (‘this’) baby” it was time to get back to her ‘real life’. What did she say: “life goes on” as though the baby isn’t ‘life’ itself.
Life in the “fast lane”, despite her saying that she is not in the fast lane anymore. What a hypocrite. Well, there is a semblance of truth in that: her career ain’t in the fast lane anymore. With a bit of luck, she may skip the Oscars as Nine is not up for the ensemble award where she could have basked in the glow of the group. As I have said before; I would LOVE to be a fly on the wall at her home. Remember how shocked the world was when she a Tom split? Another ‘shock’ is not out of the question.

And besides, Joy, how are YOU so sure about what goes on behind (their) closed doors???

notachance said...

Good post there ABC -

Tara said...

I got a look at that tender kiss
in a series of shots and its pretty
much a kiss for camera use.

So we have seen Kidman recently but where is Keith- he wasn't in any of the photos for the we are the world thing and the only story that said he participated was from Friedman the buffoon. No trips to the gym no movies dates no twitts from those he is writing with. Just wondering

joy said...

I did say....
"""""" When all is said & done they are normal people with normal insecurities & normal self-esteem issues just like all of us & YES normal lives."""""

When they are alone by themselves individually they each have to go to bed with how they lived each day (we each do). They each have to individually get up each morning & face themselves in the mirror(we each do). No matter who they are NO ONE can answer for their actions but them.

Glad both sides get to voice their opinions here.

I'm a fan of Keith Urban & that's all. I have no lasting interest in these 2 adults. If they left the planet today it wouldn't affect my life one bit. I enjoy Keith's music & I feel that he is a multi-talented performer & will be for a long time.

""" And besides, Joy, how are YOU so sure about what goes on behind (their) closed doors???"""

I have no idea what goes on behind anybody's closed doors but my own. I'm just speaking as a person who is open to seeing both sides of this issue. I don't believe in looking at 1-2 pictures once or twice a month & making an uninformed decision on what was said, done, thought, or acted out by anybody in those pictures. I would rather err on the side of positiveness when it comes to Keith Urban & Nicole Kidman Urban than on the side of negativeness.

Does the sun rise & set with what happens with these 2 people----not in my life. I'm sure it does in their lives & their loved ones lives. That's all that should matter.

I speak as a Keith Urban fan & ONLY as a Keith Urban fan with my own personal opinion.

I guess we can just agree to disagree. God bless.

abc said...

Just for the record, Joy, I don't base my opinion on one or two pictures a month but on the (incongruent) statements that Nicole makes and has made over the years and on the many many pictures that we see of her, in virtually every magazine and all over the internet. This just happens to be the only site where I comment. My interest is the impact of celebrity culture on society (especially the attention-seeking young; the "me-generation"), but more especially how it is quite out of whack nowadays. Nicole is what is called a 'pulse point'. She, in particular, annoys me as she treats the public like a bunch of idiots - saying whatever is expedient for her even if it contradicts something she said elsewhere, or indeed, what she does. This site is all about busting the myth that she is spinning - in her desperate attempts to stay in the public eye; despite having been shown up for being overrated, overpaid and without real acting chops.

She wants to have it all, like DDL, as she has said, but sadly she can't. You can't be famous (public) and not famous (private) at the same time. When you choose fame, you lose your anonimity. The huge bucks and lifestyle are supposed to be the compensation.

Off-subject:

Has anyone seen the latest pics of Elle Macpherson? She has pumped up her top lip ala Kidman-Rinna-Ryan ... and it looks hideous! Why oh why do beautiful women mess up their looks with this dreadful trend??? What message does that send out?

WHAT!?...the "RISING SUPERSTAR" wasnt invited to the We are the World update? Will wonders never cease? And kidman claims that the dancing monkey duet was rehearsed for a WEEK!? Well, now we have our answer as to why her dancing scene was cut from Nine! And seriously, who actually believes that this duet was simply a "one off?" Both kidman and orb are just desperate enough to simply be laying the groundwork for their little vaudville act!

kfroeba said...

The simple truth is that unless the members of this site googled Kidman EVERY day and/or created RSS feeds, they would NEVER ever see or hear Kidman.

Why seek with such energy that which you loathe?

Why care of the wife of a man who you've made a hobby to disdain?

According to this blog, Urban is a spineless, mindless, fame seeking prostituting dolt who lacks talent, originality and scruples?

No explanations attempted can be truthful or logical without insulting yourselves mighttilly.

Afterall, what kind of person is obsessed with strangers whom they despise?

He wasn't invited, but then he commented that he was recording, and couldn't just "drop everything" to go over and participate.

kfroeba said...

It's not google, it's Yahoo


I don't quite know why. . .

I just noticed the BLATANT inconsistancies a couple of years ago, (oops, has it been that long) now, and then noticed some other things, that the regulars here know all about, (so I'm not going to repeat it), and that triggered this desire to want someone, ANYONE, to publicly say, "this woman speaks out of both sides of her mouth, no one should take her seriously for one moment in time".

I'm still waiting. The thing that angers me the most is that she is friends with Murdoch so she gets this pass to news organizations, a "bully pulpit" if you will, to prestigious people, and could affect the lives of millions of people if she used her powers for good, but what I see is the nonrelenting onslaught of self-propetuation, on every stage, in every forum. Even her religion was used in the tabloids, come on.

More to the point, however, my regular use of this blog is much more maniacal. I think it is more that I like to see my musings on the screen. I think I enjoy when others think I am funny, and I know for a fact that after a long day, I pull this up for no other reason than to read the rants. They could be talking about someone else, they could be talking about anyone, I suppose, if I really think about it, and I would get the same effect. I think that is what it boils down to for me.

Yep, that's it. I'm an egotist who likes to write, and these people are my cyber-buds and I think they are flat out hillarious.

p.s. you go ABC.

mikki said...

kfroeba, what kind of person critizes the thinking of others? Your here. There must be something that brings you to this site. Surely if you think its so wrong you wouldn't take the time to come here and read along. I don't think anyone here owes you an explanation.

Laura said...

Did you guys read the new people magazine with Keith on the front? ALL he talks about is Nicole and how much he loves her and is inspired by her. I don't think you can fake love. I'm not saying they'll last, cause it's Hollywood almost no couple lasts, but they seem to truly love each other or at least he loves her..

HA! Hysterical piece from the Daily Mail...

"Nicole Kidman takes Sunday Rose to the zoo... or are they just visiting family?"

...the Daily Mail obviously also suffering from "stranger obsession!" Well I for one am wondering how those NKUser obsessed fansies are going to jusfify posting this article in THEIR site? I mean, SO obsessed by strangers those NKUsers...Who among you believe that the NKUsers should "get a life?!"
Now enough of that pointless nonsense... so, get a load of how BOTH kidman and orb get a paparatz pic snapped of them holding little sunry feeding the giraffes! They are equal opportunity media mongers! Now as to the comment of the article of how the kidman's are just visiting "family"...the "family" dont see them as often as this!

This one? Yep.

#1 & #2 - This married Academy Award winner/nominee actress is a big fan of Adderall. She hides it from her A list celebrity husband though because of his past addictions. She has given him so much crap but doesn't want to hear him give it back to her.

mikki said...

Keith has no tour, Nicole has no films. So they will put their personal life front and center for publicity because thats all they've got at the moment.

Maclen, both Keith and Kidman have said that they are not going to the oscars. I'm wondering if Kidman couldn't get a spot as a presenter this year and thats why shes not going. Don't you have to be nominated or a presenter to do the red carpet and sit in the front row?

Yes mikki, I would say that kidman obviously hit a brick wall at the oscars...sure she can get presenter at the Globes and SAGs...with front row "cast" nominated tables...but just as the film roles have dried up because of her "box office poison" rep...I'd say she was out of luck scoring even a presenter slot at the Oscars...or just not a "prestigious" enough one to show! Which would explain her "might not be at the oscars" press release.

Choice said...

Maclen, I wonder too if the Oscars preparation committee prefer only popular and currently rising stars to attend. I am certain if they let Nicole sit in front row or present, audiences at home will switch off in droves. It's high time these Awards function organisers realised that having Nicole there will not increase ratings. How stupid are these people?

Seriously, please re-read this article and, with all due respect, please compare it to any other article written about Keith in the last 3 years. I think you will find the simalarities are amazing.

Yeah, hoosier, I would say another "press release" hack job. And always puzzled at how orb continues "promoting' his "domestic bliss" in his music...when his cd based on that very subject is his worst selling yet! But it's pretty obvious at this point...kidman AND orb are both glutons for medicrity and the mundane!

maclen said...

Laura said...
"I still don't see how that proves anything.. You can't fake love."

Ha! Interesting statement...are you trying to claim that a few comments in a magazine article "proves" TRUE LOVE? I'm sure Tiger Woods stated his "true love" for his wife in public interviews...but after the 14 or 15 uncovered affairs...would anyone consider his "true love" worth having? If the fansies are going to argue that the "skeptics" cannot know what really is going on with celeb's private lives...why would they bother to then argue that they are "happy" or that they ARE "devoted" to each other? By their own beliefs, they CAN'T know...and are only...wait for it!..."SPECULATING" and...again...wait for it...basing it on "rumored" comments from a magazine interview! Funny...that sounds familar?

maclen said...

...ps...

...just a quick update on the subject of kidman's dead career...so according to this piece from Variety...

http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118014713.html?categoryId=3934&cs=1

EFM sets pace for 2010
Buyers, sellers hit market in cautious, upbeat mood

"Affinity Intl.'s "Rabbit Hole," now in post and starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, is creating anticipation among buyers curious to see the latest film from John Cameron Mitchell ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch," "Shortbus")."

...so again, it's clear Rabbit Hole still has no domestic distribution...and also, about 7 months after the end of principle photography, this measily little indie is STILL in post? This other update article...

http://www.montrealgazette.com/entertainment/Owen+Pallett+abandoning+fantasyland/2527704/story.html

Owen Pallett: Not abandoning his fantasyland

"Scoring for films, another sidebar to Pallett’s musical life, could be on permanent hold. He co-wrote the music for last year’s The Box, with Cameron Diaz, but was recently taken off the soundtrack work for the Nicole Kidman vehicle The Rabbit Hole.
“That sounds sinister, but it wasn’t,” he said. “It was strictly a scheduling thing.” Pallett said he had told the producers that he would not be available to work on the film after Jan. 10 because he would have to promote Heartland. His time limitation was forgotten as the film deadlines kept getting pushed back, he said."

...Ha!...film limitation was forgotten due to film deadlines kept getting pushed back?" Does that remind anyone of a recent "oscar bait" film recently released 2 month ago...and a month later than originally set because of "production delays?" As kidman has proven over and over again, "production delays" for her films NEVER come out very good!

Laura said...

okay but i believe tiger DOES love his wife. i mean don't get me wrong i think he's a total douche, though. i just think he's a sex-addict and needs help. i don't like him. and in no way would EVER defend or justify him or his actions. i couldn't care less about him actually. i'm just saying, it's hard to fake love, and everywhere Nicole is, Keith's right there with her. and it sure does look like they're in love when we see them. i mean other than this picture.. but idk. who really knows what goes on in their life? i just wish keith would fucking talk about something else other than her.

abc said...

as we all know; there is "in love" and "in lust" and Tiger was clearly "in" both. With Keith, my guess is that having given up all his other vices; drugs, groupies and alcohol, sex is now a biggie for him ... and he has only one place now to get that so I guess that he has a huge appetite for that ... and i just have a feeling that Nicole may not be into 'it' in such a big way and in the long run, that would create problems ... I know, I have been there and I have friends who have been there ... I am sure that that is a currency that NK has with Keith and he will do anything to keep up his access to his only 'drug' ... (I am sure she doesn't mind, or rather, relishes, the regular "3 day breaks" from it!)

also, don't forget, NK and TC were the "it" Hollywood Golden couple; always glued to each other in public and looking very much in love - or so we all thought ... and then out of the blue ... bam! (Tho I doubt for the reasons I speak of above). Or in reverse, maybe, if rumours of her infidelity (and Tom's speculated gayness) are to be believed. If anything, I think in NK's case, it could have been emotional or mental infidelity. Being Gemini, NK is not only a "split" personality, but 'operates' on a more intellectual level.

I again watched the 'duet for Simon Baker' and something stood out for me: she introduced Keith, not as my "beautiful" or "wonderful husband" or "baby boy", but as "my complicated love story"! What's 'complicated' about it?? No wonder he doesn't smile thru that piece! This was a piece for a friend, in a congenial atmosphere, why is he looking so glum throughout that duet? Normally he always smiles when he performs. And in that piece, NK clearly upstages him and Keith watches her in a look I can only describe as surprise; as in 'what the hell are you doing' ... at one time she goes right behind him where he can't see what she is doing ... for me, bizarre.

Anyway, I lived in Australia for a couple of decades and I will be the first to say that Australians are sweet people, actually the New Zealanders (like Keith) are even sweeter and known for their community mindedness ... and Keith has these qualities ... NK I feel has been corrupted by too much attention in an unreal world ... she is lucky in that since marrying Keith, she is benefitting by his earthiness and sweetness ... but as time goes on, sadly I think he is being altered by the 'drug' that is her ... oh dear, hope he won't need rehab from her one day. In my book, that is a very real possibility.

I certainly don't "loathe" either of them, (I kindov like Keith), however, NK simply irritates the hell out of me, and like an itchy sore, one can't help picking at it.

FWIW, "baby boy" is how he has referred to himself.

No joke.

abc, your note about Keith being into sex because other avenues have been cut off from him is a good one. I'd never considered that and it makes sense to me.

Laura, I challenge you to go back to any Red Carpet photo shoot of other actors or musicians, and find a couple that did nearly as much snuggling/hugging/clinging/forehead touching/his hand in her groin, etc., etc. as this one.

The very theatricality, the excessiveness with which they conduct themselves publicly screams that it's all for show. Especially when we see candids of them around Nashville or LA that show them barely looking at each other. Forget about the obvious PDAs, these two barely connect.

But I gotta say, my favorites are when he looks point-blank scared of her, because she looks like she's about to eat him raw. Yeah, in public no less.

THAT'S what can't be faked. And yes, you can fake love. Lots of people have marriages of convenience or for money.

Laura said...

Good points. It's weird to think about the bad boy side of him because he looks and acts so innocent! But anyways, I'm not sticking up for her, but I do think Keith deserves to be happy. And I see your point in the pictures of them out and about in Nashville. There are a lot of times where they look like they're annoyed by each other. But Keith sure does do a good job of hiding it in interviews, GOSH, his people magazine interview is so annoying. It's all about her. Like, the story is getting so old.

Tara said...

I have to say if you go back to days gone by and old interviews a lot of what he said about Kidman he said about his then fiance in 2001. I am sorry but this is just another attempt to manipulate the public to somehow make this couple important beyond their own separate public identities. They aren't a super couple- they aren't that savy.

I don't buy the myths they try to create. I never have its a sideshow.

also does anyone really think with Keith Urban's rumored pre marriage adult life that he has settled for Kidman? - Nope.

notachance said...

I dunno, I'm thinking that NK is probably into some strange sex stuff. She's commented on her sexual fetishes before.

She comes off as cold to the public, but behind closed doors there could be some wild shit going on. And maybe that's why they've whittled down to the 3 day rule.

rememberwhen said...

One thing I would like to know is, where is Sunday? She has not been seen or talked about since they got back from Oz. It is like she doesn't exists anymore. I wonder if that means there is fake baby #2coming down the pike. Rose is walking and I'm sure she is talking too. How would it look for mommy to be caring her and she screams out for mommy. That wouldn't be to good.

A440 said...

notachance,

We've all read the sexual fetishes stuff she laid on that GQ journo, and how she said later that she had been taken out of context.

Me? At home, I think she's got his d!ck in a box. I think she pulls his chain. She emasculates him in public, so why not at home?

Who knows? (shrugging) It may be just what "Baby Boy" wants.

Actually, I hope he's getting some nookie on the side -- with a woman who doesn't have to call attention to her new breast size.

Laura said...

Your guys' comments crack me up. But i'm confused, we're all Keith fans right? I mean I just don't like Nicole. I love Keith, though. I think we're being a little harsh on him. :/

"we're all Keith fans right?..."neine"..."nyet!" Now, true, I may be the only non "past,present or future" fan of the orb on this blog...never having even heard of the orb before he hooked up with kidman. And surely being of the belief that people are judged by who they associate with...orb has very little chance of impressing me with anything he says or does. NOw apparently most other commenters here are fans of...how can I describe...varying allegences? Some of the fans are still pretty much pro orb and anti kidman...some are anti orb and anti kidman...and other occasionally flip flop of pro or anti orb...it just depends on the event at any given moment...as when the orb tours and he gives kidman shout outs and song dedications on stage really gets their goats...but if orb doesnt give her props...they are in hog heaven over him. But of course, it's a see saw and back and forth of whether they are through with the orb. So at some points in the progression of this blog...the impression will be that at some points...some or none seem to be not unhappy with the orb...or...vice or versa that...they will knock the orb! The only reliable and consistent voice not being charmed, or impressed or at anytime postitive of the orb is...yours truly! I dont have any past baggage, or the disillusionment. I just see the numbers and say he is not doing well. I have no false preconceptions!

abc said...

Laura, probably nowhere near as harsh as Kidman is on him. :`


ps: In the GQ interview that NK did she said: "I will never write a book; I will take all my secrets to my grave". Clearly she wants us to speculate about what these 'secrets' could be; what we shouldn't know. A book-full!


PPS

Keith calls EVERYONE 'sweetheart' so I wouldn't put much weight on the petnames he calls his wife in public. Of course, it can't be 'sweetheart'; that's for the commoners.

Choice said...

Hi Laura - I think people on here like Keith's music but are disappointed with his choice of companion who has dragged into a Hollywood world. Perhaps he may like that world, but people miss the good old Keith from years ago who wouldnt be seen dead in those tight silver suits which make him look uncomfortable.

Unfortunately, birds of a feather stick together too. Nicole and Keith are not considered very bright people, both didnt exactly stick around at school. You might say they were bright enough to earn millions, but Im talking about the ability to hold a decent conversation. Neither can do it. She comes across as an airhead, he comes across as tradesman. He seems to look up to her, and who the hell knows why! She cant even cook (by her own admission). She must be pretty good in the bedroom then.

joy said...

I am a fan of Keith's music. Who he chose to marry is his choice & his alone. What he does with his life I would hope would be in the best possible interest of his music. I really don't have any ill will toward Nicole. She isn't my cup of tea as an actress but he loves her & that's good enough for me. She has very good qualities & is a sweet person from what I've read & heard from many sources. They share a child, step children & of course their marriage. Maybe things aren't 100% there but I dare you to find a marriage that is 100%, 100% of the time. It's impossible. That's why we're human beings--we are flawed. I can understand disagreeing with Keith on issues but even if I weren't a fan I wouldn't try to tear down those he loves or the life he lives. That's just hurtful to him & not cool. Is he perfect, very far from it but that's what makes him Keith Urban & nobody else. The man has more talent musically (in multiple areas) than the majority of the population. I found Keith Urban because of his music, I will continue to listen to & enjoy Keith Urban because of his music. If I'd meet him face to face today I would shake his hand, congratulate him on the wonderful talents he has & the success he has achieved and I would wish him AND his loved ones the very best. We are not an island unto ourselves. When we have family including through marriage they are a part of our lives & they become our lives. It can't be seperated no matter what. Whatever we dislike in Nicole, Keith sees beyond that & he chose her as his wife & the mother of his daughter. Only can those 2 people KNOW really KNOW each other in a way no other person can. The Catholic vows they took on their wedding day (if they aren't different there) say I take you_____ in good times & in bad, in sickness & in health, I will love you & honor you all the days of my life. I believe that is what they are trying to do. Is it perfect, is it right all the time, do they always feel like smiling & being "lovingly physical" in front of the media. No of course not, I'm sure. Do they make mistakes, do they have disagreements, do they go there seperate ways at times, do they tick each other off, I'm pretty sure they do.

All I can say is this---TRUTHFULLY if I had to hear about Keith Urban's life in this year of 2010 I would rather hear about the love he has for LIFE, his wife, his daughter, his family, his friends than hear that he was spaced out somewhere drunk, high on drugs, partying with who knows who or (God forbid) that he was buried under a cold stone with his name & date of death etched on it. He has turned his life around & I cannot in any way, shape or form disagree with that. If it was Nicole that turned him around & help him see his purpose than more power to her. I have NO problem with that. I'm just glad he's above ground, breathing and that he continues to share his God given talents with us. I hope he continues to do so for MANY MANY MANY years to come. May the Keith Urban family have every possible blessing & grace from above. May they remember where it all came from & remember that to whom much has been given much is required.

hoosierlady said...

He has made it abundantly clear from where he gets his talents. . .

He gives praises to her name, all the thanks, the power and the glory, each time he takes the stage. Isn't that what this blog is about?

I say

orb who?

A440 said...

"You're Not My God" is NOT directed toward Kidman.

abc said...

very nicely and fairly said, joy, congratulations!

the problem I have with nicole is her incongruence, her inconsistency, her manipulation of the media, her lying, if you will, and what bugs me is her assumption that the public is too stupid to notice. furthermore, i resent her fans calling people like myself 'haters' or 'jealous'. believe me, if I were to be 'jealous' of any 'celebrity' it would be of Meryl, or Angelina, or Julia, or Julianne, or Charlize, or Penelope, or Scarlett ... I could go on ... but, certainly it would not be of Nicole K ... I suspect she herself is probably jealous of any of those ... well, she has already admitted to being wildly jealous or envious of DDL, so I doubt she is completely happy with her own lot and is why, I think, we see her being petulant so often - and why we see her constantly changing up her look, and body&face. I suspect she is very different away from the public eye; especially when she doesn't get her own way. Whether Keith can handle her over the long run, is anyone's bet, including his own, I am sure. However, the child changes everything, and is why I suspect she had the child a year earlier than Keith wanted to, as he stated in the media at the time. He clearly seems to have a sweet nature and is making the most of his circumstances. Whilst I admire his strength in overcoming his prior addictions, (continuing good luck with that, Keith!), I don't dig his music much; except perhaps for his earlier guitar work; ESPECIALLY his version of "The devil went down to Nashville" (awesome!).

one thing that does always make me hold my breath when people profess personal or private things in public so much, is having to eat your words when, or if, things change. Nicole herself has said as much, which is why she remains mostly schtumm on such matters and keeps spinning various scenarios to give herself a fall-back position. she may not be as dumb as we think!

maclen said...

Truth is, kidman's "glowing" veneer is completely worn through...and she can continue to go through the motions...but to a very different effect. And orb is clearly going through the same procedure. And the fans can completely deny the fact that his decline began when he hooked up with her...but it is what it is nonetheless. His last cd, Defying Sales, which was a complete ode to kidman, sold very poorly. I have no doubt his next album will be more of the same. And based on my "incremental declining" theory on his cd sales of the past 6 years...it should sell even less. And are his fans really in any anticipation of more songs from the orb dedicated to kidman? I say the future of his career looks bleak!
