Lady Gaga Apologizes For Collaborating With R. Kelly; The Moment Nicole Kidman Knew Keith Urban Was ‘The Love Of My Life’

Nicole Kidman knows the moment she knew Keith Urban was ‘the love of my life’

Nicole Kidman had known Keith Urban for less than six months when she knew.

“It was my [38th] birthday, and he stood outside with gardenias at 5 a.m. on my stoop in New York,” Kidman, 51, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s cover story.

“That is when I went, ‘This is the man I hope I get to marry.’”

Urban, 51, took her to Woodstock, N.Y., the site of the 1969 music festival, on a motorbike for a getaway (“My kind of guy!” she says), and she’s never looked back.

“It was pretty intense,” says Kidman, whose gritty drama Destroyer will be released wide this month. “I believed by that point he was the love of my life. Maybe that’s because I am deeply romantic, or I’m an actress, or I have strong faith as well, but I just believed, ‘Oh, okay, here he is.’”

The two married a year later at a romantic wedding in Manly, Australia, and have since settled down in Nashville, where they’re happily raising their two daughters, Sunday, 10, and Faith, 8.

For his part, Urban was always equally smitten with his Oscar-winning bride. He tells PEOPLE, “I could sum up Nic as a wife, mother and human being in three words: She’s all heart!”

Lady Gaga apologizes for collaborating with R. Kelly back in 2013

Lady Gaga collaborated with R. Kelly on “Do What U Want,” and she also defended him publicly, telling journalists:

“R. Kelly and I have sometimes very untrue things written about us, so in a way this.”

Melissa McCarthy says ‘blood drained out’ of her when interviewer asked about her ‘tremendous size’

The 48-year-old actress recalled several times reporters’ comments made her feel uncomfortable. Specifically, McCarthy said she’s constantly been prodded about her body — a subject, she points out, that men don’t often face.

“I do remember another interview I did for ‘Bridesmaids’ with somebody who later lost his job for a conversation he had on a bus with someone else. I won’t mention names, but just think about it. He kept asking, ‘Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?’” McCarthy, who credits the 2011 romantic comedy for helping boost her career, told InStyle magazine.

“He kept asking, ‘Are you shocked that you actually work in this business at your tremendous size?’”

At that moment, McCarthy said “all the blood drained out of [her]” but she kept her composure as cameras rolled.

“I thought, ‘With my tremendous size, I could tackle you so quickly.’ There were two cameras on him, and one was on me, and he went back to that question three or four times,” she added, noting these types of questions “happen all the time.”

“…It’s fascinating because they don’t do it to men. Not to be a jerk or single him out, but when John Goodman was heavier, did anybody ever talk about his girth?” McCarthy asked.
