David Beckham. On the cover of ‘the magazine for gay men who haven’t come out yet’*

* We knicked that joke off-of Will ‘n’ Grace by the way. Thanks Jackie.

To continue…. anyways, David of le Beckham is on the front cover of America’s Details magazine. Which is, er ‘the magazine for gay men who haven’t come out yet’. Good mag, btw.

David Beckham on a magazine cover shock

Here is a quote from an article on said person in said magazine, with the sub-head, ‘What is the secret to David Beckham’s success?’…

‘They (people like DB) know when to shut up*. As do many men of great physical beauty**, Becks has the luxury of underplaying his hand – the less said, the more room for the imagination***. But he is also aware, as was Princess Diana****, that we live in an image culture, not a word culture*****. Why say anything when you can strike an assortment of poses in a variety of outfits, silently signifying madly******. That is why he is unlikely to come out, for instance, against the Iraq war*******. Such a traditionally self-important Hollywood gesture would seem presumptuous, and it could chip his carefully varnished brand.’

WTF?!

*Er, he can barely actually speak.

** ‘Great physical beauty’? He’s cute, but not that cute.

*** Chance would be fine thing.

**** OK, this is getting silly.

***** Thank fuck for that!

****** Come on, you’re taking the piss now.

******* Are we actually talking about the same person? The Iraq war?! Seriously people…

  1. Are these Americans confusing David Beckham with somebody else entirely? He’s a vaguely pretty boy who kicks a ball. There’s not a canny bone in his body. LIke he’s actually made a ‘choice’ not to speak about Iraq. He probably doesn’t even know where the hell it is!

  2. yeah Pip, he is not the sharpest tool in the shed, and some might say he is cooking, but his oven’s not on, but he could still TOTALLY get his banger near my mash*

    *I knicked that bit from Will & Grace. Thanks Anastasia Beaverhausen.

  3. Oh, Anastacia Beaverhausen – j’adore! Though they’re right to mention him and Princess Diana in the same breath. Both total dunces.

  4. Beckham is an icon … and what are you Pip? Something I spit in the bin when eating an orange. You’re unwanted leftovers dear.

  5. Yeah, something like that. Can cause choking if not dealt with appropriately….! I do agree he’s an icon – but for all the wrong reasons. In the same way that Posh is a ‘fashion’ icon for all the wrong reasons.

  6. Mmm … he’s an icon because it’s alleged he’s a very good football player, and is also handsome and stylish and elevated the profile of his sport to new heights … all seems prett legit to me.
