The bad news is that David Beckham, who you already don't like because he's British and lives in LA and plays soccer and is married to a Spice Girl, will be the centerpiece of a new musical that may or may not ever come to fruition. "Beckham’s story is a modern-day fairytale of heroes, villains, love, Manchester United and what it means to lead your country," the songwriter told the Telegraph. And underwear modeling. Underwear models are the biggest heroes of all.
The good news is that former tennis player Anna Kournikova is in Maxim this month (bone-anza of photos here). I've never gotten into the whole Kournikova-worship thing, but I have to admit, it's a nice diversion from British soccer musicals. But then, so is diving naked into powdered glass.
