Beckham Excited About Olympics, Despite Snub

Although David Beckham was not chosen to play for Great Britain’s soccer team in the Olympics, he is still excited for his cameo in the video for the Opening Ceremony.

And Beckham has “goosebumps” just thinking about his cameo role in the video. In a piece he wrote for The Sun, Beckham said, “I have been lucky enough to have been involved in some amazing …More

David Beckham Broken Up Over Olympics Snub

David Beckham won’t get the chance to kick the ball around this Olympics, and he’s a bit broken up about it. The British superstar was part of the original 2005 campaign to bring the 2012 games to London and even stood with Princess Anne to receive the official torch last month. But all that cheerleading didn’t earn David a spot on England’s Olympic squad, and the father-of-four’s feeling overlooked. "Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me. So I would …More

David Beckham combined his soccer skills and musical talents with his rendition of Beethoven’s "Ode to Joy" in the latest Samsung advertising campaign. He teamed up with Samsung, the official sponsor of the London 2012 games, to promote their Galaxy Note cell phone. Makes sense, considering Beckham is the Olympics ambassador. And they make a pretty good match in their new commercial. The ad starts when the soccer star, donning a white shirt and black pants instead of his usual soccer attire, enters a …More

David’s New Doo at the White House

David Beckham was at the White House yesterday with his teammates from the LA Galaxy soccer team. He brought along what appears to be the club’s new mascot: a fresh new mustache. The new lip ‘do was on display as President Barack Obama honored the Galaxy’s 2011 Major League Soccer Cup title. Jspace staff had a difficult time finding the right adjective to describe the handlebar mustache, so we’ll settle on: “different.” Beckham’s ‘stache did not go unnoticed by …More

David Beckham Will Kill You with His Naked Stare

Soccer stunner David Beckham will strip off his clothes for you, but he will not be happy about it. At least that’s the message of his new ad campaign for H&M Bodywear. Once you’ve gandered the package area—we dare you not to look—bring your eyes north and contemplate that Blue Steel stare. It’s a bit menacing, no? There’s something off about the whole look, actually. The body is fantastic, no question, but the tilt of the head, the swoop of the hair, the general moodiness …More

Categories: World, Sports

David Beckham joined the chorus of criticism of FIFA President Sepp Blatter for his recent comments that racist disputes in soccer can be solved with a handshake. “There is no racism,” Blatter said in an interview with CNN. “There is maybe one of the players towards another—he has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one. But the one who is affected by that, he should say that this is a game. We are in a game, and at the end of the game, we shake hands, and this can happen, because …More
