Beck Talk: Kiss-related Fainting & Posh Ponderings

The real reason the Spice Girls’ tour has been called off early? Victoria Beckham has far better things to do – like shop and break out several thousand pairs of new shoes across Manhattan in a ten minute period. She’s recently admitted she wants to quit the music biz for good and focus on fashion, and it looks like that plan of action is in full effect.

In the meantime, her hubby David hit Jermaine Dupri’s pre-Grammy party over the weekend. He arrived around 1am and kicked it with Janet Jackson and the music celeb crews like a don.  He also kissed a fan on the cheek and she fainted.  He was reported to be very non-plussed, as obviously his ability to render a woman unconscious is a frequent occurrence. We’ve said it before, but seriously, the idea of David out socializing without his wife makes us a tad nervous.  Would you allow Becks to roam the streets unsupervised while hoards of hoochies in hotpants make their intentions known?

  1. she still have the looks even she had a baby, what a figure..

  2. The Fourth Official says:

    Do I wish David was still on the team with Gary and Ryan and Paul?  Yes.
    Do I blame Victoria?  Yes.
    Do I think I know better than David what’s good for him?  Yes.
    Is this “retarded”?  Yes.
    Will I ever change my mind?  No. 
    I’m sorry, I won’t talk about it anymore.  Thanks for putting up with my rants. <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/embarrassed.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="red face" style="border:0;" />

    I just think blaming Victoria for all of the wrong decisions you think David has made over the years is just absolutely retarded. They are MARRIED, and have a normal loving relationship. Victoria isn’t making him do anything he didn’t want to.

    And I’m sorry, as much as I love Becks, we wouldn’t have Cristiano now if Becks didn’t go. I hated it when he left but that’s what happens in this sport. People grow up and move on and we can’t be petty and blame someone else for that happening.

    And seriously. Cruz is the cutest thing in the world. Tammy, I would assume Brooklyn is busy with school and that’s why he’s not with his mum all the time.

    I Cannot Believe They Cancelled The Tour. I Heard It Was Because Geri didnt Want To Do It And Then Her And Posh Fell out or Something.
    That Kid Is Sooo Cutee smile

  5. brandy says:

    Sorry – the tone in my previous comment came off way more harsh than I intended! I guess I just haven’t seen enough Cristiano ass lately and I am getting frustrated LOL!

  6. tammyv says:

    Joanna is correct, Victoria was by far the most famous of the two of them when they got together and she is the one who made him into a Brand (her and her marketing team led by Simon Fuller). He would be on the G’Nev, Giggys level were it not for her. 

    As for the rest of it… where the hell are her other kids?  I understand that he is the cute one and all but for god sake?  (I understand that the middle one has eplepsy and so can’t stand the photographers).  What the hell happened to the oldest one though?  Why is he never with moms?

  7. brandy says:

    Anyone who blames her for David’s “downfall” is… I don’t even want to say it… He is a grown man and capable of making his own decisions. What makes anyone who is so far removed from him think they know what is better for him than himself and his wife that HE chose? And if girls/women don’t have a positive self-body-image, that is not Victoria’s fault either. It’s called scapegoating and transfer of accountability. Oh, and it’s also called weakness.

    Just my opinion.

  8. You never have to look far to find greatness.  It lives within you

  9. LoveLamps says:

    Victoria had to cancel the tour because she is the guest judge for the season finale of Project Runway!  She’s way too busy with fashion to bother with singing.

  10. aja says:

    and the kid is adorable.  don’t know which one he is, but he’s ridiculously cute.

  11. aja says:

    kaya, i agree with you, what is up with the viewing panel?  i’m just baffled.  i wouldn’t often wear what she wears, but i totally respect her dedication to never dressing down.  putting that amount of work into your image-you could say her energy is misdirected, but then again, she knows herself well and she is pretty fierce.  and she knows herself well enough to know what she isn’t good at, and to capitalize on what she’s got.  you could say it’s superficial, but, well, so are a lot of things. 

    as for la being the sad nail in the coffin of david’s career. eh.  he made a choice.  it’s his career.

  12. The Fourth Official says:

    Yes, I concede that when they met, David was not the most famous footballer in the world.  But certainly by 1999, the Treble and The Wedding.

    If David had not met Victoria, there is no doubt in my mind that he would have stayed at United for at least three seasons longer than he did.  There was absolutely no reason for him to leave.  After the treble in 1999, and during the successful EPL campaigns in 99-00, 00-01 and 02-03, SAF wanted the Champions League again, and he said often that David was integral to those plans.  United was fully prepared to offer him whatever money he wanted.  David has confirmed that money was not the issue.  There was a contract waiting for his signature at United’s offices when he flew to Madrid. 

    As a player, David didn’t get too big for the club.  Eric Cantona a perfect case in point.  A big player, a big personality, and SAF couldn’t care less how big as long as he kept booting them in.  The 1999 team was packed with big personalities.  Schmeichel, Keane – no one was short of ego.  It was as a celebrity that David got too big for the club.

    The wedge that came between him and SAF was solely caused by the circus atmosphere that surrounded his life with Victoria. SAF has admitted that himself.  And David said that he had to leave because he felt that his choices about his lifestyle and his marriage were not being respected.  Yes, he was an adult and made adult decisions.  But his path would have been a quite different one with a different choice of mate.

    Perhaps a trip to a European club was bound to come (even Keano contemplated a tour at Juventus), but it would probably have been followed by a return to England for the twilight of David’s career.  I can’t believe that LA would have happened if not for Victoria.  And LA was the sad nail in the coffin that was David’s career.  Nobody can dispute that. 

    Whether a life centered on fashion is valuable in the grand scheme of things is personal opinion.  I haven’t heard of her doing much else for the “public good”, whereas David seems to thrive on his various charitable commitments.

    As for her role as a mother, I’m sure she’s a fine mother.

  13. Johnna says:

    TFO, I usually agree with you on alot of things, but not so much on this one. When she met David, he wasn’t the world’s famous footballer back then. He was playing for a very well known team, yes, but he was not the Becks we know now. She was pretty damn famous herself at that time, even though I won’t remark on the talent because I hate the Spice Girls, but she was very well known. And she didn’t drive a wedge between David and his football team. David got too big for Manchester United. It’s happened before and will happen again, but Sir Alex makes sure no one is bigger than the club. And David is more than able to make his own decisions regarding his future. I very much doubt Victoria made him do anything he didn’t already want to do. It’s a marriage for God’s sake.

    I agree with the body image comment, but we have to remember that Victoria herself is a victim of anorexia and altered self image. She can’t help her illness. But her and David have done a world of good for various charities and the like. I think it’s a bit harsh to say the only good thing she’s done in her life is shop.

    I Read the Tour Was Cancelled Because There was No Demand For Tickets, That sOne Big Fat Lie! I Tried to Get Tickets Forever, Bu tI COuldnt Find Any Anywhere.

  15. carly says:

    TFO – no, that’s spot on. I’d simply add that it’s unfortunate (for some, including me) having to see her in every magazine, website,etc.

    I had no idea the Spice Girls tour was cancelled and I’m proud of myself for that! <img src="http://www.kickette.com/images/smileys/wink.gif&quot; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  16. kaya says:

    I don’t like whatever that gray ensemble with the viewing panel was, but I actually think she looks great in the main pic in this post, and I’m not a VB fan. The rest of the dresses are ok… the red sequin number would be better if she had waited for them to sew on the back.
    As far as that scar goes, I’m thinking it looks too far up her tummy to be a c-section scar. Appendix removal would be low and off to the side… so I’m not sure what that would be.
    I would definitely not call Vicky’s tummy a six-pack. That would require muscle tone which she clearly does not have. And yes, you can be stick-thin and have a “sagging tummy” because you don’t even have enough body fat for your skin to maintain its elasticity. She might have this to a certain extent, though I think she’s come (slightly) back from the brink of death where she was in summer 06, but that’s clearly a scar, not a fold. I’m just surprised she’d put it out there for public viewing.

  17. The Fourth Official says:

    Victoria.  How could we sum up her fabulousness?  An untalented, uneducated wannabe who somehow snagged herself the world’s most famous footballer, then proceeded to come between him and his team (the world’s most success sporting franchise), making herself so unpopular in the process that she was practically driven out of England on a rail.  Equally unpopular in Real Madrid, her nagging drove David to LA so that Vicky could have her turn in the American celebrity spotlight, a move which for all intents and purposes, sabotaged the remainder of David’s club and international career.  She has contributed to the global good by attending many fashion shows and buying shoes.  Oh, and by setting a wonderful example of healthy body image for our young women to follow.  Have I missed anything?

  18. jordan says:

    TFO, are you compairing her with yoko ono because that’s a little strong.  i think if i had no talent or education i would be pretty proud of the fact that i have a healthy, beautiful family and have made a name for myself outside of my famous husband by establishing a high profile company (keep in mind, all these other celebs don’t have their clothing on sale in top department stores across the US like she does) and have dealt with the tabloids and paparazzi quite well (lets not forget the “affair” david supposedly had, i could only imagine how i would feel if that were me and the entire world was reading how my husband supposedly had an affair with a nasty-ass woman) and to go on about her weight, who cares, if young women can’t make up their own minds about what is a healthy weight and what is not, i would talk to their parents and question them instead of victoria beckham.

  19. brandy says:

    Despite her sometimes questionable lack of coat or smile – this woman is FIERCE!

  20. Becksmademefaint says:

    Saggy !!!!  Crikey Moses.

    Thats the most tanned, most toned, least saggy belly I’ve seen today.

    *gets out dyson and tries home liposuction*

    “Never loses suction”  PAH!!

  21. The Fourth Official says:

    Sagging skin like she has on her belly is a sign of muscle wasting from anorexia.  The body starts digesting its own muscle mass for protein.  The skin literally loses its underpinnings.

  22. cassie says:

    if that’s a saggy stomach i better get some lipo fast because before too long mine will be reaching the floor..  i really don’t care for her dress sense much, but i love the white outfit and have to say she has THE best collection of shoes & handbags i have ever seen!  i feel sorry for her in that everyone finds something about her they like to put down…her “saggy stomach,“ her inability to smile, etc, etc, for those who are friends with her, she seems lovely to be around and clearly is a very smart business woman and i would bet she has a wicked sense of humor, which is why david clearly loves her, not because she can’t smile.

  23. The Fourth Official says:

    She quit the tour because she’s getting ready to shed her skin:


  24. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    That kid is just the cutest!! Look at his little face, awwww I wanna squeeze him!!

    As for Posh, wtf is up with her dress sense lately?? I am not feeling it at all!
    And I can’t see much sagginess going on, looks more like a flammin six pack to me.  Does look like she has a red scar or something on her stomach tho, could just be a crease I guess, but she doesn’t really have fat to crease over does she?
