  • Quotes

    • Victoria: (on her fashion ideas) I know how a dress should sit. Like I knew I would spend a lot on high-quality zips because I have had my share of badly made zips. I wanted a zip that undoes from both ends because then you can either put the dress on over your head or step into it - and also, you know, going to the loo wouldn't be this whole big problem.

    • Victoria: We would like another child (but) I'm working so hard on my fashion business. I haven't got time David and I still go out on our own and have a real laugh together, I love him more now than I did when we first met. I know people sometimes don't want to believe that we are happy but we are.

    • Victoria: (outraging her fans after she made the following quote) You're a true fan when you cry or pass out. When the paramedics are called it's a good sign. It shows real determination as a fan.

    • Victoria: (on hiring a new assistant) She can't be too good-looking, she can't be too thin. It has to be all about me.

    • Victoria: I'm getting really self-conscious about the fact I do constantly look like a miserable bitch.

    • Victoria: (on planning an Oscar acceptance speech) I thought about writing a speech if I won a lifetime achievement award for Spice World. I might look crap in it, but who knows, it might become a cult classic!

    • Victoria: I dress sexily - but not in an obvious way. Sexy in a virginal way.

    • Victoria: (on her Spanish skills) My Spanish is improving and I can now ask: 'Dónde Gucci?' ('Where is Gucci?'). I also can say: 'Tienes un Bentley?' ('Do you have a Bentley?').

    • Victoria: 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.

    • Victoria: I would love a little girl. Our boys are phenomenal, but a girl would just complete our family. But at the moment I take my contraception pill every morning, as now isn't quite the right time. When you're in the public eye they expect you to pop one out every year.

  • A shell of her former self.

    8.0
    I really think that Victoria Beckham used to be on the right track. She used to seem so happy and have so much personality back in the 90's. I guess after all the fame, money, and attention, it takes away your true self. I am not saying she is a bad person. I actually think she is a decent person today. She seems to be a good mother as well. The thing is, she just seems lost and unhappy. Maybe I am reading this wrong and maybe it's the botox injections, plastic surgery, and all the work she had done. But she just doesn't seem quite right. You can have it all: money, children, fame, everything. Unless you're at peace with God, you will never be completely happy. Thank you.moreless
  • Victoria is so ugly and weird

    3.0
    The only reason she is famous is becouse she is married to David Beckham: whos a nice, down to earth person.



    But she! She is an ugly love-me-do who thinks she is the the greatest thing on this earth. Wake up silly!!! Your gross... Your face looks like a horse. Your taste in the so called "fashion" is mediocre. Whenever you go out in those dresses you look like you have just escaped out of a mental institution and you dont know how to dress properly.



    Posh wake up to the real world, earn a living. Dont wait around all day for your husband to pay your credit card bills.moreless
