David Beckham and Posh Spice are coming to Los Angeles

Yes, there was a terrorist attack against the American Embassy in Greece, but the number story on the local news last night was the arrival of the Beckhams.

They will fit right in. David according to Variety, wants to act more. While I am over men who are too manicured, esp. those with high pitched voices, David is an outrageously good-looking man.

Victoria Adams Beckham, with her Rachel Zoe sized double zero self and huge fake breasts will be right at home not eating at Mr. Chow's. I am glad Katie Cruise's friend will be here. Poor Katie is probably very lonely.

I don't know if this will increase the popularity of the world's number sport here in the U.S. I remember when Pele came to play for the NYC Cosmos in the 70's. I could tell you the names of some of the French, Brazilian and Italian players, but I don't know a single member of the USA team.

In other news, a USA Today cover story said over 80% of Generation Y (18-25) number one or two goals were to be rich. 51% want to be famous. The pollster said the reality TV craze and mags like Us etc. are fueling these desires. Great.

Here's what I want to know:

Why does Victoria Beckham NEVER smile????? She has such a sour look on her face in every picture I see of her. I would understand if it were times when she didn't want paparazzi around, but take, for example, the Tomkat wedding - she looked angry with the world!

I'm ashamed that I know this.

Posh never smiles because she hates the way she looks when she smiles. She doesn't think she has a pretty one. Absurd, I know, but true.

Generation Y... the USA Today story reminds me of that movie Idiocracy, did you see that? It had some good points.

> Insert rant about all the stupid things like incorrect word usage that have become commonplace in society here <

(sorry it's too depressing to write out)

(Is it wrong that I am citing a movie by the creator of Beavis and Butthead as a good source of societal criticism?)

Gibber, don't feel bad about know the answer to Kali's question. I'm embarassed I remember seeing an interview with the Spice Girls (circa, the "Will You Be There" video. The one shot in the dessert. It is a good pop song. Probably their best), Posh saying she didn't like her smile at all.

Jess, I don't get it. Other countries have reality shows (most of the one's we have are based on foriegn ones). Not sure why the impact on kids here seem greater.

Nicki, I have to say in the few interviews I've seen he is not that engaging. He's no Henri Thierry or Luca Toni. :)

I'm still trying to get over just how much moolah they're paying the guy. I can't even conceive of what it would be like to have access to that much money--how the way you look at things in the material world is totally different that the "average" middle class person...incredible and just a tad shameful as well.

I know 250 million over 5 years. outrageous.
