Today's Blind Items - Kindness

I am sorry for not having a Four For Friday post on Friday. I got caught up with something and by the time I could get back to the blog it was already late Friday night, but I will figure out a way to make it up to you.

So, this A list singer who is married to an A list movie actress was in a music store over the weekend and was looking at guitars and trying some of them out. Also in the store at the same time was a teenager who was looking at effects pedals. The specific one the kid was looking at cost about $500 which is pretty pricey for a pedal.

Anyway our singer and the teen talked for awhile and then the singer ended up buying a guitar for himself. While he was at the counter paying he told the cashier to also charge the effects pedal to his credit card and to tell the teen Merry Christmas.

#1 - A list singer
#2 - A list actress

Sexecution said...

Keith and Nicole. He's always seemed like kind down to earth guy who would encourage a kid.

Cute Little Redhead said...

This is SO NICE. I love when people do stuff like this. If I was rich, I swear, I would do this every chance I got because it would just make you feel so warm inside.

I like the Keith Urban / Nicole Kidman because somehow to me Keith seems like a good guy. That is a guess of course, because as we all know from this site, looks can be deceiving.

bumblebee said...

Ben Harper/Laura Dern? Are they A list?

Christine said...

Brad Paisley/Kimberly Williams

Funny Girl said...

Either Keith/Nicole or Gwenyth/Chris

sunnyside1213 said...

Is Nicole or Goopy still A?

Urban Myths said...

This isn't even a blind... it was in the Courier Mail...

Obviously Urban/Kidman:

Christine said...

or depending on how loose your definition is...

Johnny Depp/Vanessa Paradis

that would be a real stretch for the definitions tho, but Johnny would totally do something like this

Thisisridiculous said...

Yep Keith and Nicole.

Pookie said...

omg, i hate to say it, but...marc anthony and jho? while i absolutely hate calling jho a-list...marc is undeniably a-list+infinity in latin market...AND he's known to do this sort of thing...

shakey said...

Awww, bless his soul.

linnea said...

awwww.... merry christmas!

Harriet Hellfire said...

I thought Keith Urban too...whoever it is, that was a really sweet thing to do!

Little Miss Smoke and Mirrors said...

That is so cool!

kris said...

Urban Myth,

Thanks for the link to the article...got me a little emotional...

califblondy said...

Keith and Nicole were my first thought.

I wished Keith would meet me in the shoe section of Saks...

amelie said...

Kris,

Me too!

****wipes tear from eye****

Being a country music kinda gal myself, I saw Keith Urban in concert recently. He was out in the middle of the crowd, running down the aisles, singing his heart out, shaking hands with his fans, standing on spectators' chairs, playing where people could touch him, and everything! He is an amazing performer and true gentleman, and this is him. Hands down. FTW.

Sporky said...

That was extremely cool of him.

Tea Lady said...

That was totally cool. Glad to hear Keith Urban is a good guy.

Karmen said...

Yeah, I could totally see Keith Urban doing that over Chris Martin. I don't know if he has a reputation for being an asshole or not, but I don't see him being that generous.

That was really sweet of him.

figgy said...

So now not only does that kid have the really good pedal, he has a story about it forever, how Keith Urban gave it to him! :-)

Christine said...

This story makes me happy.

bflogurl said...

So sweet.... I know there are a lot of Nicole haters, but I really, really like these two as a couple.

Urban Myths, thanks for the link =)

Kingrey said...

Forgiven and forgotten, Enty.

Thanks also for the link, Urban Myths. The true spirit of Christmas. I think, in terms of material gifts, there is no better feeling than giving someone a gift that you know will be very useful to them. And Urban didn't expect, and probably didn't want the publicity for doing it. Kudos!

Sweater said...

Keith Keith Keith
Good Lord I love that guy.
Merry Christmas everyone!

Ahari said...

Love Keith Urban, he seems like an awesome guy. And I know he gives guitars away at his concerts occasionally, so sure. And I love that Sunday Rose seems to look like her daddy.

Ms Cool said...

Glad all is well, Enty.

I LOVE kindness blinds. Especially when they are figured out (never by me, of course). I bet Keith Urban gains a few more fans today.

Wil said...

What a great guy ... Might need to start listening to country again! ; )

Jaiden_S said...

My opinion of Keith just went WAY up. What a nice thing to do. :)

Keith Urban/NicoleKidman

Mooshki said...

Enty, I don't know how you manage to keep pumping out a dozen posts every single weekday. If anyone here thinks it's easy, give it a try. You deserve an occasional break. But if you really want to make it up to us, maybe you could hire a P.I. to snap some covert Nathan Fillion pics for a new Full Frontal Friday? ;)

Tully Mars said...

This is definitely Keith Urban. Everybody I know that has met him says he is a kind and generous person. He remembers what it was like before he became famous.

Char said...

Yay so glad that was Keith, he was my first thought for sure, just seems like such a stand up guy. Not sure about Nicole, but Keith is tops in my books.

Pookie said...

teehee, mooshki!

and wow, urban myths, sweet link...that's so great to know about keith u. very classy.

Preciousredtx said...

haha Mooshki...

Enty....I think most of us were worried about you and to me knowing you are okay is making it up to us...

I, for one, would go nuts during the day without you and this community.

Mooshki said...

Tell me about it, Precious! I can't imagine trying to get through my days without my Enty breaks!

ballyhoo. said...

aww, i love kindnesses. :D

and not that it's necessary but if you REALLY wanted to make it up to us you could always reveal mv...

...but i think we're just glad you're ok. :)

PJ Nelson said...

This story makes me happy, too. So nice to hear the good stories as well as the juicy ones.
I love this site - Enty, you are the best. Happy Solstice :)

joy said...

Keith Urban and it's so typical of his generosity without looking for the kudos. He's such a sweet AWESOME AUSSIE.

Preciousredtx said...

so true Mooshki!!!

cricket said...

Got to be Keith Urban. He's still sweet and kind in spite of being around the plastic stick up her butt Kidman.

Urban Myths said...

Amen, Cricket.

Meg C.H. said...

I love, love Kindness Blinds. Restores my faith in humanity and Hollyweird. Thanks Enty.

kmt said...

Believe it or not, I know for a fact that this actually happened in Pittsburgh with Russell Crowe while he was filming this past summer. Doesn't fit with this blind, similar, so I thought I'd share.

kiki said...

Marc / JLo

selenakyle said...

Yeah, I was hoping Enty was gettin' him some on Friday...

Whitney said...

Chris Martin? Seriously. He's a prick, folks.
