Good Week/Bad Week: Models and Music
Yoann Gourcuff visits a children’s hospital in Ploemeur (good) but his leather jacket looks like pleather (bad). But he’s hot. Thus, his placement within the good week section.
Bitchfaces and cut-eyes
King of the side-eye, David Villa brought a new twist to his usual gaze of steel: the condescending shoulder tap. Poor Iker doesn’t stand a chance. Even more impressive is this cold steel look of utter (sexy) disgust given by Roy Keane when asked a question he very clearly doesn’t like. Delicious.
Nicolas Anelka decides his thighs need extra ventilation. Who are we to argue?
New England Revolution’s Taylor Twellman poses for his Cosmopolitan magazine Bachelor of the Year segment; Luca Toni shows some clothes with his gal Marta (why does she look like she’s been to Nicole Kidman’s derm?) and Cristiano Ronaldo is rumoured to be taking over from David Beckham as the new face of Armani. (Really? Gucci would make more sense, no? We’ll believe this one when we see it.)
Dodging musical bullets
A few years ago, David Beckham was slotted in to re-record John Barnes infamous rap from the classic footy tune, “World in Motion.” The merciful gods of musical intervention stepped in – and the lyrical throwdown of Becktastic proportions never happened.
Melanie Slade used to be a non-WAG WAG and we were all proud of her for it. Then she made a name for herself by doing bikini shoots and constantly harping on about just how non-WAGish she was. Her recent interview makes us feel thatshe doth protest too much for our liking.
It’s never fun to be reminded of how many private jets or micro-dogs dressed in diamond-studded booties you could have access to if you’d only stuck to a clear and well-mapped out bag-a-baller strategy. In any case, there’s still hope. Put this footy rich-list to memory and get thee to the players’ lounge.
Blogging whilst sober
Let’s put this in simple terms: Julio Cesare needs to control his woman. Susana Werner cut loose on her blog saying she hopes Inter know what a great catch Julio is – or he’ll be going elsewhere. Of course, this wifey support is admirable – it’s great that she is so involved and passionate about her man. But there’s a time and a place. And that time and place is not in caps-lock on the web.
Hotel heiresses Paris Hilton and her brief dalliance with Cristiano Ronaldo has now somehow resulted in Paris being touted across the Spanish media as a scary voo-doo injury wizard employer. Nereida? It’s time to let go now.
