Brooklyn Beckham: ‘My life’s so tough…Fame has ‘ups and downs’!

Posted on August 2nd, 2017 at 3:42 pm by    

Brooklyn Beckham says fame has its “ups and downs”.

The eldest son of millionaire power couple David and Victoria Beckham moaned that it has been hard to be a normal 18-year-old because he is so well-known. Oo-er!

Speaking to US website Entertainment Tonight, aspiring photographer said: “Fame has its ups and downs. I get opportunities most people my age don’t get. But I can’t do what most 18-year-olds do.

“I can’t go out partying all the time, I have to work and get up early.”

Brooklyn – who published his first book of photography earlier this year – also spoke of the pressure on him to follow in his dad’s footsteps on the soccer pitch.

And he revealed he had a hard time as an Arsenal Academy player and said: “Every time I made a mistake everyone was looking at me like, ‘Oh my God, like, he made a mistake’.”

Young Beckham is now planning to take a bite out of the Big Apple to focus on his photography – and though he’s a “little” nervous about living on his own, the talented teen says his famous parents have spent his lifetime doing prep work.

“My dad’s always taught me how to do stuff on my own,” he told PEOPLE magaizne this week’s.

Beckham’s first photography book – What I See – is currently available on shelves, but he’s still working on perfecting his craft. In fact, photography school is the impetus behind Beckham’s move to New York City in just two weeks.

“I’m studying art and photography, like film and digital – a mix of both,” the 18-year-old shares. “I’m really excited to start and I feel like it’ll be a really cool thing for me to focus on for a few years.”

Despite a “tough time” with his public life, Brooklyn bagged his first fashion shoot at just 16 – an entire ad campaign for Burberry.

He appears to crave fame just like his mommy and daddy… Just sayin’!

Victoria Beckham Working the Cool Pyjama Vibe!

Posted on June 8th, 2017 at 9:42 am by    

Victoria Beckham looked more like “ready-for-bed” than “ready-to-wear” as she stepped out in a pyjama-style outfit in New York.

The fashion designer who is known for her love of oversized outfits despite her slim physique, cut a cool figure as she strolled through the Big Apple on Wednesday wearing a loose-fitting sky blue pyjama set from her SS18 resort collection.

The style maven wore the white and blue checked set undone at the neck, teamed them with a pair of nude-toned sandals and her signature statement sunglasses.

The two-piece looked remarkably like what many mere mortals sleep in on a nightly basis, but Victoria elevated the look with a pair of nude heels and square designer sunglasses.

With a hand in one pocket as she strode out of her hotel, the 43-year-old looked cool, calm and collected as she set off for another busy day in the fashion state.

Victoria is currently in the city to showcase her Spring/Summer 2018 collection, and shared her excitement with fans on social media.

She wrote on Twitter: “Excited to be in New York to preview my ready-to-wear collection! x VB”.

Victoria has certainly put on a colourful display while in the city, having stepped out in a tangerine outfit earlier in the day.

David Beckham Shares a Snap of His Birthday Dinner!

Posted on May 3rd, 2017 at 7:04 am by    

I’m not one to question the ways of David Beckham. He’s a legend, no doubt about it, so I say this with the utmost respect:

What’s going on ‘ere then?

While it’s nice to see even celebrities get to eat whatever they want on their big day, the meal is certainly an interesting concoction. Oo-Urgh!

Golden Balls celebrated his 43rd Birthday on Tuesday, and it looked like a rather joyous affair.

But then, on his Instagram story, the former England captain revealed his celebratory birthday feast. By the looks of the picture below, it includes eggs, pineapple, cole slaw, mushy peas, baked beans, bacon and french fries all cosied up next to each other into a big sloppy, albeit colourful plate. Yuck!

Even worse, he then captioned the snap: “Dinner of choice”, accompanied by a heart emoji. 

Meanwhile, wife Victoria posted an image herself, this time slightly more traditional, with David contently looking into the camera with a slice of cake in front of him.

She captioned the image: “Happy birthday @davidbeckham we all love u so much x #specialday! X VB”

But it was Golden Balls’ earlier dinner that set tongues wagging.

One social media user wrote: “How random was David Beckham’s birthday tea? He could have eaten any meal in the entire world and this is what he chose!”

Another said: “Thought David Beckham could do no wrong. His birthday meal of choice included; coleslaw, mushy peas AND beans.”

One user even claimed: “I love David Beckham but my god that dinner he put up on Instagram today…

“@GordonRamsay tell your mate to stop it. So many problems.”

Really, really gross if you ask me. Come on, Becks. You deserve better than that ol’ mess of a meal.

Now That’s Really Posh… Victoria Beckham Receives OBE!

Posted on April 19th, 2017 at 6:49 am by    

Former Spice Girls singer Victoria Beckham has received an OBE from the Duke of Cambridge for services to the fashion industry.

Victoria, who was joined by her husband David Beckham and her parents for the investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace, was recognised for her 17-year career.

The sultry star wore an all-black outfit for the investiture ceremony, pairing a black top with a long draping skirt and matching high-heeled stilettos.

After her OBE was pinned to her jumper by Prince William, Victoria allowed herself to grin as she talked with the Prince.

Before she collected her award, Victoria appeared a little nervous upon arrival.

The 43-year-old looked rather downcast as she sat in a car alongside David and her mum.

The Beckhams have been close to the royals for many years now, thanks to David’s charity sports work.

The couple even attended Wills’ wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011, when Victoria was pregnant with youngest child Harper.

In a speech afterwards, she said: “It was an absolute pleasure to be at Buckingham Palace today. I’m proud to be British, honoured and humbled to receive my OBE from the Duke of Cambridge.

“If you dream big and work hard you can accomplish great things.

“I’m so happy to share this very special occasion with my parents and husband; without their love and support, none of this would be possible.”

The Spice Girl turned fashion designer – who is mum to four kids – has said that rather than having a huge circle of friends, she surrounds herself with just the people she genuinely enjoys spending time with, including her family.

“I’m very close to my sister and a friend I went to school with, and then three or four others. I think a true friend understands that you can’t see them as much as you might want, because they’re busy as well.

“Everyone I’m friends with has a career and a family.”

She broke news of her OBE to kids Brooklyn, 17, Romeo, 14, Cruz, 11, and Harper, five, on a festive break in the Maldives.

Friends of the fashion designer said she was “delighted and humbled for the recognition”.

Victoria Beckham: ‘I Have Very, Very Big Plans for Global Expansion’!

Posted on March 8th, 2017 at 5:41 pm by    

Style icon Victoria Beckham is going global!

The celebrated Fashion designer spoke to Handelsblatt Magazine in one of her rare interviews about her plans to make it even bigger in the fashion biz…

This year the former Spice Girl was awarded the OBE (‘Order of the British Empire’) by Queen Elizabeth II and now says she is on track for massive worldwide expansion. Oo-er!  

Beckham, 42, won a British Fashion Award as designer brand of the year in 2011, manages her brand in a partnership with her husband, the former soccer star David Beckham and British music manager Simon Fuller, told Handelsblatt: I do want this company to be big.I have very, very big plans regarding my business, obviously the last few years and now is the time for investment.

“So as we are a group we need to take my brand to the next level together. We are having to invest.”

She said: “My priority is to take the brand and the team to the next level. There are lots of things I want to do.” In particular,Germany is “a very, very important market” for her.  

“It always has been. Even with the Spice Girls, Germany was always a very important market. Unfortunately it is one of those countries I don’t really get the opportunity to go to often enough.

Victoria, who recently broke into the U.S. market, announced the cooperation of her brand with U.S. cosmetic giant Esteé Lauder. And she is also launching her own less expensive designer clothes range in collaboration with U.S. budget fashion retailer Target, “which is something I wanted to do for a long time.”

“So I am reaching women in America that can either not afford designer prices or don’t want to  pay designer prices.

“So again that’s a new customer that will come on board. So I would say that more and more different customer types joining the gang,if you like,” she said.

“The fashion brand, even though it has my name on it, is owned jointly David, Simon and me – likewise with David’s brand.

“Regarding my business, now is the time for investment. As we are a group we need to take my brand to the next level together. So we are having to invest.”

Looking to the future, would Mrs. Becks be prepared to hand over responsibility for her label at some point? “We’re not for sale. As I said, as a shareholder with David and Simon, we’ll continually evaluate the best strategic direction.”

Brooklyn Beckham Didn’t Know His Parents Were Famous Until 13!

Posted on February 23rd, 2017 at 8:12 am by    

Brooklyn Beckham  has lived in his parent’s shadows all of his life, but now he is stepping out in to his own limelight.

The aspiring photographer has now switched sides as he graces the cover of Wonderland magazine. 

In the exclusive interview, titled ‘Ain’t A Boy No More’, the 17-year-old told the trendy glossy how life has been for him as a Beckham so far. 

“I didn’t actually know that [my parents] were big until I was about 13,” the teen revealed.

He explained how the moment dawned on him whilst at a football game, saying: “People were shouting my dad’s name and I was like, ‘What?! Oh my God.’ I don’t look at them like that.”

In the interview he says that his photography book, due to land this summer, is an exciting project for him to make his mark in the media.

“It’s pretty exciting to put my work out there and show people that I’m not just doing it because of who my parents are,” Brooklyn adds.

Like his parents, David and Victoria Beckham, Brooklyn has made waves in the world of fashion. 

In the photoshoot, the teen looks effortlessly cool in a Burberry breton top and jeans.

Brooklyn has made a big name for himself within the fashion house when he photographed the Burberry Brit campaign last summer. 

This comes just a week after the eldest Beckham child broke his collarbone on a skiing trip to Canada. 

Brooklyn uploaded a video to his Instagram, that boasts over nine million followers, showing the moment he suffered the injury. 

We love Brooklyn… In fact, we love all things Beckham… Nuff said!

Victoria Beckham Reveals She Regrets Having A Boob Job!

Posted on January 12th, 2017 at 8:24 am by    

Former Spice Girls singer turned fashion designer Victoria Beckham has finally revealed she regrets having a boob job when she was younger, and that she was “stupid” for denying having had it done for such a long time.

In a heartfelt open letter, intended as an imagined letter to her teenage self about what the future would hold for her, was originally published in September 2016 in Vogue, but has been shared again online in January and praised.

“Learn to embrace your imperfections,” Victoria wrote. “That is what I want to tell you. Let your skin breathe – wear less make-up (and don’t ever let that make-up artist shave your eyebrows! The effects will last forever).”

In the lengthy piece, Victoria covers everything from being bullied at school, to auditioning for the Spice Girls, meeting her husband David Beckham and wishing she knew more about the “offside rule.”

She continued: “And I should probably say, don’t mess with your boobs. All those years I denied it – stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got.”

The 42 year old has rarely spoken about her cosmetic surgery in the past, mentioning it five years ago in a separate Vogue feature, saying before quickly shepherding the conversation on: “No torpedo bazookas, either. Gone.”

Three years later, Allure magazine confronted her with two ‘before and after’ pictures of herself with bigger boobs in the past. “I don’t have them any more. I think I may have purchased them,” she fessed up.

She’s due to receive an OBE in the Queen’s New Year’s honours list this month, for both her fashion empire and her services to charity. In the letter to her younger self, she said that her designing career would bring her “so much fun”.

“You are going to have so much fun with your clothes – PVC catsuits; chokers that say absurd things; weird spiky blonde hair. It will never occur to you that you appear ridiculous.

“You will turn up at awards ceremonies resembling a drag queen. You will always be addicted to Elnett hairspray but you will tone it down. Less of the ‘Hello! I just got stuck in a wind tunnel’, please.”
