Shut Up & Sing, Keith...
Nicole, just shut up!
It was all turning out exactly as Nicole and Baz had planned...dragging around Keith's comatose body from event to event was working a charm with middle american audiences....it was a little sad that Nicole didn't have any patience for Baz's never ending 'Weekend at Bernies' jokes..but then....you can't have everything.
Poor Keith. What an unfortunate picture that leaves itself open to numerous interpretations. Snuggling, hand-holding, crotch-covering, yuk. If only Nicole had Naomi there with HER.....
danenh, It looked to me as if Moosie girl tried to solicit Kate Hudson but she didn't go for it! ((giggles)))I think KU was fooling as to say Baz your jokes are putting me to sleep. But you know how it is with Moosie girl involved it's going to look gay!!What I don't get is, Moosie girl can have any pic pulled if it's not to her liking, yet she left this one!! (hmmmmm) seems like she is setting him up for some reason!!
YEah, clearly orb "cozying" up to the bazz...clearly he's hoping for some soundtrack work in the future...work he'll no doubt be needing! It looks like the bazz may be gearing up to start shooting The Great Gatsby....in OZ....AND in 3D! HA! Should be an instant Imax classic! As I do take the bazz at his word he will NEVER again work with kidman...orb looking to get an in for some work coming his way. And so, returning to my recent train of thought regarding the orb's lackluster cd sales...as I commented on the previous thread, orb's cd is currently at #118 on the Billboard Hot 200 list...and considering the fact that orb's cd sales were omitted from last weeks sales report over at Roughstock.com...my curiousity has been peaked over exactly how may cds he sold last week. And in a search I found this blog entry with the entire Hot 200 list and I noticed this hilarious tidbit. Orb's cd is at #118...and only a few spots away at #122 is taylor swift...with her PREVIOUS cd, "Fearless"...which came out 3 years ago! I used to mock orb's previous cd, Defying sales for falling behind swifty's other previous cd, "Taylor Swift" back in 2009. Well, once again orb's current cd will no doubt be lapped AGAIN by swifty's previous cd! It's like red meat to me...this mediocre orb music...so may indignities it just keeps going through! Well, if I ever find a sales number for orb's cd...I will certainly immediately post it...and the yucking up can continue...
The intent is there and the picture is still out there.Everything is done for a reason.
maclen, Thank you for your insite. I think your right he will need to branch out since he is not going to fill his venues.Do you think he could say he has to cancel some of his tour to work on Baz's film? ;)
Jake said... "maclen, Thank you for your insite. I think your right he will need to branch out since he is not going to fill his venues."Hey Jake, your'e welcome...glad your'e into the data. Yes, orb will soon learn that it's not as easy...on the music charts, and I assume on the upcoming concert tour when he doesnt have that music label support. Orb's first album release on his own new label..."Hit Red Records" aint exactly performing very impressively, is it? Also, Jake...in my recent online searches...it seems the american leg of orb's "WORLD" concert tour will be 50 dates from june to October...4 months!http://www.countrymusicontour.com/keith-urban-concert-tour-tickets/Now, you'll notice I highlight "WORLD"...because in orb's pathetic definition, the world is Canada and Oz! Canada because it a simple hop skip and a jump from NY...and oz in Dec because kidman's already decided that they usually go to oz for Xmas to see HER family. And orb has already announced that jake owen will be his opening act for the ENTIRE US leg of his tour...http://kfrog.radio.com/2011/01/25/keith-urbans-opening-act-for-his-get-closer-tour/...and that The Band Perry will be his opening on the Canadian leg...http://www.thecountryvibe.com/Blog1/index.php/2010/12/01/keith-urban-adds-more-get-closer-2011-tour-dates/That's a far cry...I'd say a HUGE cry from past opening acts like "Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bently, Glen Campbell and The Zac Brown Band"http://www.countrymusicontour.com/keith-urban-concert-tour-tickets/Orb is CLEARLY scaling back and no doubt going on the road on the VERY cheap. But then MOST of orb's previous opening acts are now far more successful than he is...just to compare...http://www.countrymusicontour.com/taylor-swift-concert-tour-tickets/...swifty's 2011 tour will..."cover 19 different countries and almost 100 show dates!"HOws that for a dose of reality!
...post scripture...HA! Check out orb's US tour opening act...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jake_Owen...would you say that Owen is a "mini me" orb? he even sports orb's patented "frosted highlights!" With his 2 albums and 6 singles...owen will no doubt bring HUGE attraction to orb's US tour!
Well, an update on orb's cd sales...I havent been able to find any numbers for orb sales last week...perhaps...because there aint none...(excuse the double negative, it just sounded funnier) But HITS Daily Double preliminary numbers are out.http://www.hitsdailydouble.com/sales/salescht.cgi And with 41.98% of numbers in...it DOES seem that many of the country acts did recieve a Grammy "bump." With about half the sales numbers in, Lady Ant already has sales of 42,376 racked up, Aldren has 25,750 in sales....taylor swift has 23,978...Zac brown-9,275...Lambert 8,246...Chesney 3,619. But not surprisingly, orb is NOT in the top 50...in fact, the last album at #50 is "Wow Gospel 2011" compilation cd with only 1,721 cd sold. That means at the halfway point of sales, orb has SOLD LESS THAN 1,721 cds! Crikey...did distributor CapNash pull the cd out of stores? Has Target stopped stocking orb's cd on shelves? Is this thing down to sellin only 1k cds a week?
Maclen, Keith will be starting his tour in April in OZ.http://www.theboot.com/2010/12/13/keith-urban-australia-tour-dates/I believe its five cities (they left out Melbourne). Lady Antebellum is his "opening act". They have never performed in OZ but must be popular there because I read that all the shows sold out right away. With the exception of Brisbane, which was on hold because of the floods. To be fair, it could be Keith fans selling out the shows, but I suspect Lady A is the draw.Keith also has the Houston Rodeo coming up March 8th.
I find that incredible...especially with people talking about how well he, Mayer and Jones did with "Jolene." There's been a lot of chatter, and all of it complimentary.Maybe Nic and all her Victim PR is the hex? Just how long are people supposed to listen to her whine about how tough her existance is?
There are a slew of Urban's Get Closer CD's on the Target shelves. Most of the other CD's be it Taylor, Rascal Flatts, GaGa and the like are gone with one or two remaining. Every where I looked Urban's CD as well as DG were everywhere. Not even a sale price can make that latest piece of garbage move. It is horrendous and what bothers the crap out of me is that he is capable of much, much, better. My guess, the man is not feeling the love himself for his Stick Figure. Perhaps he should have written a love song for Baz. I never saw that look of pure bliss with his "wife".
WOW, is the pressure getting to great on him these days? is he getting fed up with her and starting to wiggle out of this phony relationship? i got to believe by seeing this that she is aware of his preferences. she has got to be very shamed by this public display because this is tearing down her little facade in the public eye...Trying to keep the facts straight in my head...These might help to discover his preference:Keith has always been kinda physical with other men.People (including me) have wondered about him and Chesney when they were BBFs.Keith doesn't look interested or physically comfortable with his wife, imo. Keith seemed to be infatuated with Mayer, imo.Keith is feeling the love of BAZ, ewwwwww.Keith looks like he wants to get horizontal with Baz!!!!BAZ looks excited!!!Nicole doesn't has her teritorial hand stretched over Keith like she has done of late.These might help to CONFUSE obviously done for a purpose not sure of:Keith married a sexy feminine female (in her opinion, not in mine... i personally think she is a transvestite) Keith new wife settled him down to a family and gave him children. (in her opinion, not in mine... I do think both children were propagated using his swimmers but I think Keith was groomed and used to give her the family image she wanted in her fantasies and that's all folks.)The marriage has been "marketed" to great lengths whether it be for Nick's public image or ego which i believe is an intertwined deal because I think the woman is soul-less.

Lady Antebellum is his "opening act".

Canada... to round off his "WORLD" tour! Looking at the google search...seems most...outside on only one article...is describing it as Lady Ant "joins"....or "guests" As to whether orb OR lady ant is the true draw, a look at the current aussie country charts...http://www.ariacharts.com.au/pages/charts_display_country.asp?chart=1F20...LAdy Ant's album is currently at #1 in Oz...while orb is at #4 after only 14 weeks. And what makes that pretty impressive, though, is that lady ant's cd came out in OZ on Feb 12...of LAST YEAR. And considering this is Lady Ants first gig in OZ...that would clearly make it clear who is really selling the tickets.
...oh snap......just noticed looking at Lady Ant's album release schedule on their wiki page...that their album was released in the UK on the "Parlophone" label! That was the original recording label that originally signed The Beatles WAY back in 1962! Didnt even know Parlophone was still in existance. So thanks mikki, for helping me discover that little tidbit...it made my day!
...amendment......I need to correct my comments on the oz country chart i just posted...seems that chart was a "year end" chart for 2010. But, a quick check of the current album oz chart...http://www.ariacharts.com.au/pages/charts_display_album.asp?chart=1G50...Still shows Lady Ant currently ahead of orb...Lady at #14...and orb at #33...so my summation still stands! Blimey...where else can I still find fault in orbs career? The results seem endless!

So again, I am NOT at all surprised that orb is now crashing so extremely. Thanks for that info, LindaMarie...I was considering asking last night if anyone noticed if any of orb's cds were still on store shelves! Seems orb's audience has already cashed out on his suspect new material!
maclen thanks for the welcome. Yes I do keep track when I can. I think the Oz tour with Lady A will fair well. But that is not a feather in Urbans cap, not at all. I believe when we look back after this tour year is over we will find Lady A to be the highlight of a very dismal showing.
"Finally a forehead Keith doesn't have to reach up to in order to touch forehead to forehead!""Baz, your place or mine? The wife would like to watch!"
We could say KU doesn't have to go with Baz if he is into men. He's married to one...no need to stray!! ((((giggles)))I believe if KU was doing something like that he would keep it very quiet. What little is left of his career would certainly be dead. Look at Kenny Chesnee he had to go on TV to say he wasn't gay. Now of course he is but that was a necessary move or Nash would have tossed him!!It seems Baz was telling silly jokes and KU made it look like he put him to sleep. Some wise guy made sure he took the pic. Probably one of Moosie girl's paps. She was still looking for that victim card to squeeze out an Oscar. I find it very odd when Moosie was married to TC all of sudden people started to say he was gay. Now here we are again. It is b/c she is the masculine one. That's the way it is when you're married to a Moose!!!!!! ((giggles)))
There was an Oscar bookmaker on TV yesterday, talking about odds for a win. According to his firm's calculations, Nicole and Michelle Williams had the longest odds:66-to1.
This comment is to FINE ......get a life.That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. Keith is gay??? Please........ now you are really grasping for something to bitch about.I will be going to The Get Closer Tour......and I will ENJOY every minute of it.Anyone can have a picture taken of them.......and people take it totally out of context. I don't get the constant Keith bashing on this site.
maclen, what really did his career in,I believe, was the lack of attention and dedication that seemed to have been displayed from 2003 to 2005. I can see him becoming a Keith who?
lol, keith urban fani have a life...what straight MAN cozies up to another man like that?btw, EVERYONE i know in the real world believes he is gay.i used to be in denial about his gay habits too. if he isn't gay he needs to quit giving the appearance of it.
Maclen, another addition to the Get Closer tour.http://kmle108.radio.com/2011/02/17/keith-picks-a-winner-and-takes-him-on-the-road/
btw, keith urban fani WON'T be attending the tour this year.thought about going just to see the changes but already done that and it was waste of money.much more pleasurable to get a hotel and sit out on the beach with my money.i haven't even listed to his cd and don't plan on it because i have no desire to hear the sound of what nicole kidman has instrumented in this man's life.
i wondered how he sold oz so fast. thanks for the clue of Lady A.The Band Perry is a lot hotter than urb right now too so they should help to boost sales.i would have gone to see Lady A or The Band Perry.has urb tickets gone on sale in the US yet?can't wait to see what happens with this tour. :)
Well 440 those odds are better then a lottery! ((giggles)) No she hasn't got a chance! You look at this interview she just did with her Aussie ((personal)) friend and see she just can't cut it. No real tears....no real emotion...she is a large lump of ice. That is what came through to me loud and clear when watching the trailers fo this movie. She can hit herself and grimace but she cannot cry!!!!! Pretty cold!! It's pretty bad when you have to say, " I can't believe I'm crying on 60 min." Give me a break.... not one tear was she actually wiping away. Moosie girl is one cold dead Moose!!! ((giggles)))
Jake said... "maclen, what really did his career in,I believe, was the lack of attention and dedication that seemed to have been displayed from 2003 to 2005."Yeah, that is a good point Jake. His star WAS certainly on the rise, then he hooked up with kidman...and now he's slipping fast!So, it seems the orb DID get a grammy bump. Let's see, his last reported sales were at 5k...so lets look at the numbers...http://www.roughstock.com/blog/lady-antebellum-rides-grammy-glow-to-regain-1-country-album4- Lady Antebellum 85,24315 Taylor Swift 30,51816 Jason Aldean 30,361 21 Zac Brown Band 23,792 26 Miranda Lambert 21,21640 Rascal Flatts 16,11445 Kenny Chesney 13,93848 Sugarland 13,05575 Keith Urban 8,087..orb got a "bump" of sales of 3,000 cds! So another main point I want to highlight a little more is... "staying power" What needs to be realized in this hard data is a little perspective. Orb's cd has been out only 14 weeks...but lady ants cd has been out for 54 weeks...lamberts cd had been out for 73 weeks...and EVERYONE is still outselling orb! And ONLY the fansies can be impressed by his performance on the charts...but I maintain that they simply ignore his pathetic performance. BUT...we were RIGHT when we all claimed that this cd of orb's was a loser.
Yes maclen, we were right. I will say this, I believe KU knew it wasn't going anywhere also. I believe it was done to appease Moosie girl at this time. He got some good things out of it. He got a label. I'm sure he made some big bucks. And Moosie got the dedication she thought she needed for her ever fading Oscar. It was a deal he couldn't refuse. I think KU looks at it as, careers come and go but millions heal the loss of everything!! (( giggles))))
mikki said... "Maclen, another addition to the Get Closer tour."Yes mikki, ANOTHER cost saving move. The guy no doubt gets all the prize money and "gifts" from the contest sponsors, Guitar Center...and orb no doubt gets an opening act...for nothing. I wonder how soon before this guy is sporting "frosted highlights" in his hair! Because from that article, this dude is clearly an orb wannabe. So he may as well say hello...and IMMEDIATELY...goodbye to any career prospects!
so with 2 opening acts Keith will play what 20 minutes?I will be going to a show too what can I expect now?What if he does sleep with men? Does that take away anything from his performance?
Keith Urban fan,You can honestly say Get Closer is a great album? How long have you been a fan?Can I be frank with you, and I'm trying to be helpful here - not mean, but by the looks of your profile, if you are over the age of, let's say, 30, I would back off a bit from your love fest with Keith. I will guarantee you that your family, friends, co-workers, etc., question your worshiping of him and perhaps even laughing behind your back.If you are a teenager, well, that's fine, that's what the teen years are for, and I can see why you would like Get Closer than because it sounds like Taylor.I will predict his shows on his new tour will be nothing you haven't already seen in the last five years.Come on, wake up, smell the coffee and start listening and pay attention to all the other new excellent talent that is out there. Trust me, you are missing out on some bigger and better things.
I have no idea whether Keith Urban is gay or not....but his hair certainly is! But I can see why people would jump to that conclusion...Keith is married to a drag queen.
Blue Sky.......I am 40. I have been a fan of Keith's since his first cd. I have been to MANY concerts. I enjoy the new album. Not every song...I will be honest, I do skip over a few, but for the most part, I think it is great.I do not "worship" Keith.....but I honestly enjoy his music very much, I think that he is gorgeous, he puts on a fantastic concert, I have met him, and he seems like a genuinely kind, talented man.I think the way he constantly dedicates his music to Nicole is sickening......but if that is what he wants to do.......then it is his choice.Sometimes, I agree with the people on this site, and sometimes not.....however, when people start attacking his masculinity, that is a bit much.......and really undermines the legitimate bitching.Keith is a very good looking man, in the past he was quite the womanizer, I have met him before Nicold came in to the picture, and after Nicold came in to the picture. I can tell you he is definitely not gay.So, I guess you will all be missing out on a great concert.....and maybe if you all had open minds and actually listened to the music, I would venture to say that you might enjoy it.
"Sometimes, I agree with the people on this site, and sometimes not.....however, when people start attacking his masculinity, that is a bit much.......and really undermines the legitimate bitching." this board is usually very peaceful and you have disrupted it.i'm here for freedom of speech and enjoyment.you've qualified yourself as a basher by your reaction and rude remarks to my post because you don't think like i do.there are no "legitimate bitching" rules that i'm going to follow for you.and what i say doesn't undermine anything because i don't represent anything or anyone but myself.i suggest you skip over my post in the future because i'm going to continue to say what i think and continue to think what i say regardless whether you approve or not. your encounters and observations aren't any more credible than mine but your bias is evident by your screen name.
tara says "What if he does sleep with men? Does that take away anything from his performance?"no, but what's left to take that the lobotomy didn't take already.the only thing i got interesting from nick's 60 minute interview is when she told the interviewer there were "things" to help with with that (alcohol). just curious what things were employed and still being employed in keifus's case. obviously something given to shut out what ever thoughts and feelings that were interfering with her happy marriage because it was a quick cure.

After 5 years it is clearly not the case. But I seriously doubt he has the will to make any change. I dont see, despite the obvious flop that his cd is...I simply expect more of the same from orb.
I'm a basher?? lolWhat's the matter did I hit a nerve?I just voiced my opinion like you did, but what I say is considered bashing and what you say is your opinion? hahaha Thanks for giving me a laugh.
If being seen coming out of a bar in Santa Monica on Sunday and then having your people say you were attending an AA meeting isn't a wee bit of a poor choice I don't know what is.
F.I.N.E saidthis board is usually very peaceful and you have disrupted it.That was stated beautifully, thank you.Then, you followed with. . . no, but what's left to take that the lobotomy didn't take already.Oh, laugh a million, I just say laugh.Now, to the caption. . . " 'Cause your every woman in the world to me"Now, back to my stupid Biology class.
That restaurant hosts AA meetings.
I have been in AA and have never attended a meeting in a bar/restaurant. That is temptation staring you in the face. I don't believe he went to AA meetings now or in the past. I don't believe he was in Betty Ford either but that is another post.I have been a fan of Keith's since the Ranch days. Now that album is a work of art. He should take the time and effort to sit and listen to his old stuff. That is where he was the best, thought provoking, soul searching, gut wrenching. This Get Closer is horendous for a man of his caliber. Being happy is one thing, but just being downright silly, juvenile and blubbering is another thing. Do I believe the fluffernutter, absolutely not. Even I think he is not feeling the love for the wife, but he does what he is told to do.I am going to a show on this tour. There is no mistaking what that man does live, however with much of his songs, he will change up the newer material. I don't think he has a choice, on record it is garbage, perhaps live they will stand a good chance. I will report.
Really? I have never heard of an AA mtg being held in a bar having known how AA operates.Now if I was as high profile as Keith I am sure there are AA mtgs being held in other locations besides a bar in LA. Don't you think?
AA and bar should not go into the same sentence. Whenever this man is seen alone, he is attending an AA meeting. I know Keith will never put that information out there, as a matter of fact I believe her people leak out that information to go along with the happy loved up couple bull and she saved him crap. What Kidman should do is her homework. If her husband is attending a meeting, first, it should be nobody's business because if he is attending meetings, and he is photographed, the paps take a chance if photographing other attendees, which is a big no, secondly if she is going to put that information out there, she better get her facts straight, which leads me to believe she doesn't attend Al-Anon meetings either. Dope.
Who knows why he chose that one. Since it bills itself as a pub, maybe an Aussie/Brit contingent meets there. Maybe it's close to Gary's offices.Really ... who knows.
Tara said... "Really? I have never heard of an AA mtg being held in a bar having known how AA operates."Ha! Yes...only in lalaland. I know if I were to say...wanting to get over...overeating...I'd attend meetings at Krispy Kreme...if I were to say, trying to give up caffeine, I'd attend meetings at Starbucks....and if...well, you get the gist! Clearly it's the up is down, right is left and extremely skewed un-reality of the narcisstic set. You know, the one that is now trying to suddenly portray kidman as the "face of" the virtues and purity of "gestational carriers!"
Well KU will never attend meetings and Moosie girl will never attend meetings, although she needs them just as much as KU. Of course your suppose to be working the program when you attend. The only program they know is on the fiction channel!! ((giggles)))
So I see that the Spirit indie awards just took place. And as expected, Black Swan was the big winner. And not very surprising, Portman took Best Actress. So, what is that like 0 for 4 for kidman in awards? But I thought kidman WAS the best part of the film? Clearly, this awards season is just a simple "photo op" for kidman. But as her usual and tired photo ops show...they are worthless. Added to that theory, orb has also proven that their "fairy tale couple" mirage is as big a flop on the music scene. As his cd is such a weak seller...not even the gestational pr entity can save either of their failed careers.
...afterthought......and speaking of those rather lame and tired photo ops...http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/109460432/AFP...the "blue gums" look being sported here is really NOT appealing...at all! So I would say the asinine work on her lips is definately a step back from what she is clearly trying to achieve.
I don't think I can describe Kidman and Urban as having failed at their careers, both have achieved a lot in their respective work. Sure I think a lot of people here think Urban could be a lot better, I'm not a fan so I don't know. I'm sure his inner demons hold him back somewhat as well as Kidman.Kidman's failure is in believing her own hype when all she has ever been is a so-so actress and a committed trophy wife. Without a sense of humour, humility and honesty she has become a joke, things could have worked out better for her personally no doubt, but professionally? She has done far better than her talent or her body of work has deserved.
Well Anna, I believe they have failed as human beings. You can clearly see the only thing that matters to either of them are themselves. They acquired two children to be accessories to add to their miserable existance. They drag these poor children from one place to another obviously to have their pic taken. I don't see any genuine interest there, do you? And as far as Moosie girl is concerned? She is still marketing two children she purposely left behind. Oh and KU is not much better, for these dollars he has wanted so much was at the cost of his family and friends. So Anna as users they take the award. As human beings they get egg on their face!!And Moosie girl would not have a chance of being anything more than a third rate actress if it wasn't for TC, she still drags him out and dusts him off when she is strong armming HW !!
