Beck Talk: Spandex, Ugliness and LA



David?  Darling?  Put the spandex down and step away from the 10 speed.

One would think we would be down for this Becks/Spandex situ, but this look does not float our boat. We’re not even at the dock. Still in the boat house having a martini. 

We’ve never known David to rock the bike training before – are these shots of him (on vacay with the family in the South of France) staged for a paparazzi opp, or for real?

Either way, we’re good with not seeing David in any training gear other than his own.  Meaning, no more biker gear, no more American football gear. Aiight?

In other Posh ‘n Becks news, David is officially launched at the Galaxy on July 13, and the US takeover continues with Victoria Beckham booked to appear on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno later that evening. 

Her reality TV show , Coming To America, will be broadcast for North American viewers on July 16.  Tabloids are reporting that Victoria has only agreed to the Spice Girls reunion if everyone flies to LA to rehearse with her there.  Because lord knows, she can’t be away from her family for work purposes.

Oh, and Victoria’s also going to be a guest star on hit show Ugly Betty – playing herself.  She was paid She was paid £70,000 for the spot, which will air later this year.

Beck Talk: Happy Anniversary



Eight years ago today David and Victoria set the bar for WAG wannabes everywhere when they got married in Ireland in a fiercely pompous ceremony of fierce pomposity.

And look, they haven’t change a scratch since these pics.

No, wait… there is something different.  They’re much, much richer.

On that note, here are some images of the Beckham family + nanny getting out of their chauffeur driven Bentley which parked directly on the runway leading to la private jet.

We’re a little concerned by the proximity of the Beckhams to the Easyjet orange lowly peasant travel system dock, but we’re quite sure they don’t make private jets, so we’re good.

Beck Talk: Two Tone Love


Let us state for the record, we are admitting we have a problem when it comes to David Beckham.

We’ve lost all ability to be objective.  We just nub him so much.  Even when he speaks.  Yes, seriously.  Okay, admittedly, we are filled with high levels of stress over whether he will complete/successfully construct his sentences,  but even the voice doesn’t bother us. 

And so, when Becks stepped out on the stage at the Concert for Diana this weekend with bleach blonde hair and a dark brown beard, we took no issue.  We swooned, and carried on about our daily business.

But then we took pause.  And we took a moment to think: is this look ridiculous?  If the men in our life tried to rock this hair/beard colour combo wouldn’t we cut them down to shreds within four seconds of them entering our line of vision? Or, has David rightfully ascended to a level of nummies that allows for this style – in other words, it’s a good ‘un?

Help us Kickettes.  This is the first step in recognizing we have a problem.  Now we just need to find a 12 step program that doesn’t require us to do anything difficult. And maybe gives free manicures. 


WTF Files: Victoria Beckham “Sitting Pretty”



When we were sent the link to Victoria Beckham’s track, “Full Stop” featuring Nas we were prepared:

- for a whole ‘lotta auto-tuning going on
- for a whole ‘lotta tracked vocals

and, for it to be fairly shite.

However, we were not prepared for the “collaboration” with hip hop’s lyrical whiz kid, Nas. Hold on a hot second here. Nas, straight out of Queensbridge and credited with one of the finest hip hop debut albums in history? That Nas?  The one married to Kelis?  Nuh-uh.

So, whilst the internet rallies behind a “new” VB track and her streetwise lyrics, (she actually says “I wanna ride or die…“) (She also says, “Always sitting pretty with my legs closed…“), we have to pull out the “bitch please” monitors and categorically state this is not new, nor is that Nas rapping on the track. 

It’s some poor sod who works as a Nas rap-a-like and does guest appearances for Posh Spice.  What’s the street cred like for that situ?

The Sizzle: David Beckham and Reggie Bush


YouTube Preview Image

David Beckham has teamed up with Reggie Bush to film an Adidas commercial about football (US) vs futbol (everywhere else).

Earlier this week we saw the photos of David in an American football uniform and were amazed at how little it did for us.  We realize now that David’s talent comes from being a) shirtless b) in shorts and c) not standing next to a hot US pro football player for comparison.

Anyhoo, what we failed to investigate was the extreme levels of sizzle coming from his footie mate, Reggie Bush. Granted, he has a most unfortunate name, but yowser this man is about to break our Finest Five for the 10 seconds of soccer he plays in this ad.
