Victoria Beckham too posh for books
Former Spice Girl singer Victoria Beckham, wife of England football captain David, confessed she has never read a book, a newspaper said on Sunday.
Despite struggling for a hit record for some time, Beckham said she never had a spare moment to leaf through anything more challenging than fashion magazines.
The Sunday Mirror tabloid revealed the shock admission after seeing a forthcoming edition of high-society magazine Chic.
The confession is all the more startling given that it would appear to include her own autobiography, Learning to Fly, and that of her husband, My Side.
“I haven’t read a book in my life. I haven’t got enough time. I prefer to listen to music, although I do love fashion magazines,” she was quoted as saying.
While her Real Madrid midfielder husband’s global popularity shows no sign of waning, Victoria Beckham is now trying her hand in fashion circles.
“I know what other women think about him and I say to myself, ‘He’s very handsome, he dresses well, he’s wonderful with children and he has an enormous heart,’” she told Chic on the legions of women out to get their hands on her husband.
“I’m not jealous.
When people look at him, I think it’s because he’s very good.”—Sapa-AFP
