Nicole's games with the Paps
Hot on the heels of Keith's Melbourne concert last night, Nicole has told the Sunday Telegraph that she can never make Sydney her home again because of the Paparazzi. In her own words:
"It makes certain cities impossible to live in. Like Sydney, it makes it impossible for us to live there. We certainly don't get that treatment in Tennessee. But it goes with the territory. It's just, we have to be careful, just to maintain some sort of semblance of a normal life for our child. At the moment Keith's career requires him to be based in Nashville, because there isn't a huge career for him in terms of country music in Australia. At the same time we're so connected to Australia, because our parents, my sister, our nieces and nephews, are all based there. So it really is a pull. I miss my mum and dad so much."
You may recall an earlier post on this Blog from May 2009 - this is not the first time the Urbans have raised this issue. We then pointed out that many Australian film stars (who are much more talented that Nicole) live in Australia, and do so without any trouble from the Paps. That is because they go about their daily lives in a normal manner without seeking attention. For example, they don't ring radio stations, reminding everybody that they are in town.

Do you get the feeling Nicole is bringing all this up again to gain some sympathy ahead of her new movie NINE? Perhaps the Australian critics will be kinder this time round, following the wreck that was Australia.
Do you notice something else? Yes, Nicole has found a way to get her name in the papers again this week. As a friend pointed out some weeks ago, there is something about Kidman in the papers EVERY WEEK it seems. The way she likes it, perhaps?
