Becks is back!
Becks is back!
David Beckham opened up recently to BBC One’s “Breakfast Show,” dishing on life in LA — and how he cries during TV shows and movies!
Beckham told interviewer Nick Grimshaw that he was “kind of an emotional wreck with movies. I can’t get through some movies without shedding a tear.”
Goldenballs’ favorites? The Office, Friends – and, surprisingly Bruce Willis sci-fi vehicle Armageddon. Watch Beckham discuss this and much more in the video above.

"The Class of ‘92," an upcoming documentary about the Manchester United youth academy’s most famous graduates, always promised to offer an inside look into the rise of David Beckham, Ryan Giggs and Co. But is this simply too much information?
In the run-up to Sunday’s premiere in London, Beckham was forced to delve into his memory bank and recount a quite uncomfortable tale of his initiation into the senior side. While every new member was hazed in some way, Beckham said he got the worst of it; he was required to perform a sex act on himself whilst staring at a picture of eighties Reds legend Clayton Blackmore.
The picture probably looked something like this:
Clayton Blackmore, circa 1989.
In an interview with Metro.com, Beckham said:
“Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones, I got the short straw!
“The fact that I had to look at Clayton Blackmore’s calendar and do certain things…while looking at Clayton Blackmore.”
"I was embarrassed when I was saying it on camera let alone talking about it more. But it’s something that we all had to go through. It was definitely something I wouldn’t like to go through again!"
Again, no further comment from us. Let’s just check out the film’s official trailer instead:
Nope! Not that one. Gotcha!
David Beckham’s 10-year-old son Romeo has signed with Arsenal on a 1-year youth contract, according to ITV. It’s not a surprise, either. Romeo has long been identified as a Gooner, and was recently spotted running about in an Ox jersey:

Trying to follow in his father’s footsteps as a footballer, Romeo will now get his chance to develop the other half of his inherited skill set. Of course, he’s already gotten his feet wet in the modeling world, just like David:

You can hardly see it from these photos, but David Beckham got inked up again and his latest tattoo has raised some eyebrows.
According to the Daily Mail, the new tattoo, which covers the right side of his chest, is reportedly said to be a “portrait of Jesus — styled to look like Beckham — being lifted from his tomb by three cherubs, representing his much-loved boys.”
We don’t even know what to say about this one. Getting tattoos to honor his family is nothing new for the retired soccer superstar, but honoring himself?
“I don’t regret any of them,” Beckham once told CNN of his thirty plus tattoos. “They all have meaning. I think that’s what’s important about tattoos. If they have a meaning, you’ll never regret them.”
We’re sure there’s meaning in Becks’ latest ink, too. If anyone can get away with tattoos of themselves as Jesus, it’s Beckham.
It looks like global icon David Beckham decided to go kick around with the LA Galaxy — not like he has much to do these days. The now-retired 38-year-old returned to Los Angeles and trained with the team on Wednesday.
Galaxy coach Bruce Arena joked with the media after training when asked about Beckham, saying:
"On trial. He’s on trial," Arena said. "He’s got to work on his crossing, on his passing a little bit. If he can get better in those areas, we would consider signing him."

This season, fans in England have the opportunity of a lifetime: you can watch Diego Maradona, David Beckham, Franz Beckenbauer and Roberto Carlos, among others, all come out of retirement to team up with Lionel Messi and form the most star-studded roster ever assembled. Even better, they’re all playing under the legendary coaching pair of Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho.
A terrible joke? No!
Well, not really.
Sixth-tier side Farnborough, in partnership with their new club sponsors and betting outfit Paddy Power, has changed all of their players’ and coaches’ names to that of a legendary football icon, a world football first.
So no, it won’t be Maradona taking orders from the great Sir Alex. Rather, it’ll really be David Tarpey listening to Simon Gardener’s X’s and O’s. On paper, however, Farnborough should strike fear into every opponent. At least until they take the pitch.
The only question we have: would Farnborough’s “all-star” squad be able to beat a team comprised of Michael Jackson, John Lennon and Mahatma Gandhi? (Yes, that really is a thing, too)

It’s a known fact that having David Beckham as your company’s spokesperson is a surefire way to gain attention, but British television network Sky Sports might be taking that a bit too seriously.
In a recent ad for the network, multiple versions of Beckham appear, working through a variety of daily errands side-by-side. We don’t know about you, but what we’re left wondering is whether one of the clones might consider coming out of retirement.
When you’re David Beckham, you’re used to getting the Justin Bieber treatment. Still, this is a bit surreal.
In Becks’ latest visit to China as Football Ambassador, an appearance at the Shanghai Tongji University turned into a bloody mess, quite literally. Hundreds of people swarmed to get a glimpse of the retired superstar as he exited his car and made his way onto the pitch, causing a stampede that resulted in seven injuries. Several security guards were trampled and had to be hospitalized, visibly bloodied. Fortunately for our soccer hero, Beckham wasn’t harmed.

David Beckham is “beck” in China to resume his role as Global Football Ambassador, and as was the case last time, another great video has hit the web from his visits. Beckham’s age got exposed in a little pick-up scrimmage, so Becks had to resort to a little gamesmanship.
That video’s cute, but who can forget this classic from Beckham’s last trip to the Far East?
