* 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.
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.’
*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…
Details mag, on the interdolly.
