Nicole & Keith: a fame trade off

Let"s start off with a compliment for Keith, since you rabid Urbanites don"t seem to appreciate my constant ragging on his poofter parade. He looks good, non? Very good. I like how shiny and soft his hair is. I bet it"s silky to the touch. Maybe it"s even softer than my own Bumble & Bumble tresses. A real man with better hair than ours. What could be sexier??? And now back to the business of this little love arrangement. On the upside, he gets to rub elbows with Hollywood elite and although he"s a superstar in his own right, Nashville is a distant Southern cousin to the glam and glitz of tinseltown power. On the downside however, being the significant other to one of the biggest stars in the world means a shadow existence and I"m hearing he isn"t all that comfortable with the knowledge that he"ll always be #2 to Nicole and her immobilised forehead. Rumour is he had issues at first about being dragged around, aware that freedom and frolic are evaporating quicker than you can say Botox. By the end of the night however, he was completely jazzed to have had the experience - and he said as much when describing the evening to the folks back in country town. Surrounded by superstar wattage, Keith apparently felt quite at home. And thererin lies the dilemma: a restricting marriage knot that can also open many many doors. Isn"t it so hard to be Keith?
