Victoria Beckham pretends to be “one of us” in Glamour Mag

poshcover

Ha! I just read some of the interview excerpts from Victoria Beckham’s cover interview in the March issue of Glamour Magazine, and let me just say, this bitch is crazy. I mean that in the nicest way possible too. This woman… good Lord, she’ll try anything once. This time, she’s trying to give the impression that she’s down with how the little people live. I think the whole point of the cover, photo spread and interview was to attempt to give the impression that Posh is one of us. That she struggles and gets starstruck and goes grocery shopping and plays with puppies. Just a word about the puppy – who would have thought Posh + puppy = magic? It’s kind of brilliant. All of the photos are like that too, Posh trying to be cute while still sucking in her cheeks and not “smiling with her eyes” (Glamour slideshow here). Here’s some of the interview:

Posh: just like Us after all!

Despite her image as a flawless, world-famous fashionista who rarely cracks a smile, Victoria Beckham says she still gets starstruck, too. It’s just that her nervous moments occasionally take place on private jets!

Case in point: Beckham, 35, said she got “nervous in a good way” when sharing close quarters with a certain movie star. “I [once] shared a plane with George Clooney,” she tells Glamour magazine in its March issue. “My mum and I said ‘Oh my God,’”

“I’m leading an extraordinary life. I never try to be too cool about [it],” she adds. The former Spice Girl also says that she cherishes mommy-time with her kids — and, when time permits, playing lunch lady at their school.

“I travel a fair amount, and when I’m here in L.A., everything revolves around the kids,” she tells the magazine. “So if I’m not working, I go to the school and help serve lunches to the children. They just love that. It’s like, ‘Oh, there’s Mummy serving me!’”

Victoria and her husband, soccer superstar David Beckham, have been married for over ten years, and have three sons: Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, 7, and Cruz, 3.

She claims that she doesn’t get jealous of admirers of her sought-after husband, who’s stripped down to his skivvies in numerous Armani underwear ads: “I look at David and I think, He’s so handsome and I’m so lucky to have him as a husband. And he’s an amazing father. I don’t blame people for looking at him and finding him attractive. I mean, I do.”

Do you think Posh still gets hot for Becks? I think she’s being honest there. I think she still loves her husband very much, and she still wants to do him whenever possible. I would need to put something in his mouth so I wouldn’t have to hear him talk dirty in that weird voice of his, but other than that, I can see the attraction. And I do think Posh loves her boys, and she tries to be a good mom. Over the weekend she even played with the boys on the beach, bearing her scary bunions and mangled toes. But… do you think she goes to their school and serves food? Uh… no. No, she does not.

    I think she’s gorgeous –

    I love her in the jeans on the beach playing with her kids – if she was really so “stuck-up” – she would have sent a nanny to play with them.

    She’s trying not to be fake – gotta give her that.

  2. happymom says:

    And the papps just happened upon them on the beach? Su-re. I’m sure she loves her boys, but she absolutely uses them for publicity.

  3. bella says:

    I like her, and I think she and Becks are a perfect couple. But if this is her actually TRYING “not to be too cool about it,” babygirl has ice flowing through those veins. Because she oozes cool, IMO, and there ain’t nothin’ to be done about it. That does not mean I don’t think she loves her kids and hubby, it just means she’s got cool in spades, and I think the only ones who really see her as she truly is is her family. And there’s nothing wrong with that.

  4. bella says:

    And anyone who spends their life in shoes like the ones she wears (lucky bitch!) is going to have feet that look like that. It’s models’ and actress’ ugly little secret.

  5. SammyHammy says:

    Agreed, Bella. I think she’s okay. She just is who she is, and it works for her. She seems to be in a happy marriage and seems to love her children. What else really matters?

  6. flourpot says:

    She’s a celebrity. They’re followed everywhere. There’s pictures of her at the gym, the market, the Dr’s office. Of course they’ll follow her to the beach, as well. The important thing to see in the pictures is not her hair, her clothes or her feet, but the love she consistently shows her kids. And really, what else matters?

  7. snowball says:

    Don’t forget, she and JLo are the same size!

    OMG, those feet! My ex-MIL had feet like that, she’s only about 5’1″ and lives in heels. But she’s somewhere around pterodactl age, not Posh’s.

  8. Jag says:

    lol Yet another thing to love about her. How cute.

  9. wee freckles says:

    I doubt if she goes for the surgery that she’d be able to EVER wear those sky-high shoes again, so I highly doubt she’ll submit to the knife. But, boy, those are some ugly feet!

  10. gloaming says:

    I think she comes across quite well actually. She was hammered in the UK press for years and it seems to be starting to spread to America.

    Reasons why I like VB

    She’s never used a nanny.
    She made her marriage work after David Beckham cheated on her.(multiple times)
    She beat the shit out of a potential kidnapper when he tried to snatch one of her boys.
    She was in the most successful girl band’s ever despite the fact that she can’t carry a tune.
    She’s made a real success of her clothing line – even Courtney Cox wore one of her creations at the Golden Globes.
    In most interviews I’ve seen of her, she comes across as being smart, witty and likeable.

    I’m now a wee bit concerned I’m coming across as one of those Jen/Angie fans but I think she’s a pretty accomplished woman who doesn’t really deserve so much bad press………

    But for god sake Victoria SORT OUT THAT BUNION!

  11. happymom says:

    Flourpot, the celebrities that are followed everywhere call the papps and tell them where they’re going to be. There are some really famous actors (like Johnny Depp) who don’t do this-you very rarely see his children photographed.

  12. bros says:

    i think she looks kind of great in the photoshoot, and this is coming from someone who finds posh decidedly meh. She looks fresher and younger than she normally does, and COMFORTABLE on the cover, which is something Ive never seen her look in her normal outfits and sourpuss face. I feel relief looking at her in jeans and a comfy tee. hah.

  13. Eme says:

    I’ve loved Posh ever since that Coming to America special. She’s fantastic and funny as hell.

  14. Just a Poster says:

    At first I was like.. “spice girls.. blech” then when she did that docu/tv show about them moving to America I was utterly charmed by her.

    I think she is adorable and it showed how funny she actually is.

    Say what you want about her, but her boys always look happy and well adjusted. And she lets them be kids.

    Remember how cute one of them looked running around Hollywood in his Halloween costume? LOL

  15. Constance says:

    She still mad Anna Wintour hates her ass and won’t use her as a cover model. She tries too hard. I liked her back when her face and body looked real.

  16. *Lee* says:

    I really like her. I don’t think this is real at all, we’ll never know what is and what isn’t. But this is her life, she’s insanely rich and famous, and lives it exactly how she wants. She doesn’t seem to go out of her way to be anything, and I like that. She’s never going to be “just like us”, she probably wouldn’t know how. And there’s nothing wrong with that, because she’s not.

  17. casey.in.co says:

    i think she is fantastic. always loved her. i was so sad her very cute,witty show didn’t make it.

  18. katyusha says:

    Part of me thinks the puppy is photoshopped in. I really can’t picture Victoria letting a live animal that close to her face.
    Also, the puppy looks mighty sedated!

  19. SammyHammy says:

    “She beat the shit out of a potential kidnapper when he tried to snatch one of her boys.”

    Really? Wow. I hadn’t heard about that. If she did, then I suddenly like her even more!

  20. juiceinla says:

    I can’t help but like her…I think she is genuine. Sure she does the fashionista thing, but I don’t think she takes herself too seriously. She was dull as shixxsa on “Idol”, but she was funny on another guest bit that she did.

    I say Keep her!

  21. EMV says:

    i like her

  22. lucy2 says:

    Oh Lord, I looked a the photo of her foot. OUCH. I honestly don’t know how she wears heels with a bunion that bad. It must hurt like hell.

    I find her less annoying than I used to. Either she’s toned it down a little, or a lot more annoying people have come along!

  23. gloaming says:

    @ Sammy The attempted abduction happened in 2000 though I can’t find a link for it.
    Someone tried to snatch her eldest son when she was out shopping and she grabbed him and threw him against a wall, she then began pummeling him- this was before her security even had a chance to intervene!
    There were quite a few death threats, blackmailing and kidnapping plots against them in early 2000.

    @lucy2 lol :-)

  24. Trillion says:

    Gloaming: When I saw her and Becks interviewed by Ali G I thought she came across really well in a potentially difficult situation. I also thought she was sweet when she was a finalist judge on Project Runway. Part of me wants to bat her away like an annoying gnat, but I also see her appeal. I just really cannot stand her disgusting implants and the way she displays them so disturbingly. She’s cute as a button from the neck up, though. That’s super hot that she busted on some would-be kidnapper. I’d like to think she did it by jamming her stilletto into his nads.

  25. gloaming says:

    Oh noes! I just had a flashback of her fake nipples on top of her huge implants phase. :-)
    *eurgh*

  26. Ruffian9 says:

    I…ok….clearly in the minority here, but I just can’t stand her. She just comes across to me as so…unreal. Everything, just everything, comes across to me as for appearance. Every last detail so constructed, so practiced, so contrived. So narcistic. I’m not sure I’m expressing it well, but she just leaves me cold.

  27. flourpot says:

    Wow, mom, really? I’m feeling a bit naive because I didn’t know that. I was under the impression Johnny wasn’t followed around because didn’t he buy some island or something that they live on for privacy reasons? Blah, scary.

  28. Ana says:

    Why spend all this time creating a persona just to try to turn around and convince us that she’s just like us?

  29. Ana says:

    I saw some kind of special with her where two kids were interviewing her and she was so cute and funny. I like the pictures, but was shocked at how skinny she was on American Idol. I didn’t realize. But you know, I really don’t want her to try to be one of us. I like seeing her in shoes and outfits. But I hope she has the surgery to fix her feet, that seems very painful.
    The comment about wearing the same size as JLo? It might be true. We all know that Jennifer squeezes into dresses many sizes too small.

  30. Sally says:

    She does seem to have a good sense of humour. If you watch the interview she does with Little Ant and Dec from Saturday Night Takeaway, you’ll see what I mean!

    How much you wanna bet they had to photoshop some fat onto her?

  32. C-DUB says:

    I would have as many babies with David Beckham as possible.
