... I don't get their popularity?

Neither are that talented. Ok, so he's a decent football player. But not the best player in the world. (Not that I know anything about football anyway, lol). But they're on the news almost all the time, and I live in Australia, I can't imagine what it's like in UK.

I don't think they're that big in the US though?

So anyway, what is it that makes them tick? Just good looks and fame? And the fact that everybody else wants to be like them?

Honestly I can think of so many other talented couples who don't get their dues.

What do y'all think?

But there is no couple in the world who can outdo the Beckhams in terms of attention-seeking whoredom.

Um David Beckam is in fact one of the best players in the world!Victoria was in the biggest band of the 90ies.They are probably the only glamourous couple the uk has!

they both frankly bore me
can't stand the two of them.

David one of the best :lol: :haha:
i don't think so.
he's half decent, and takes one good free-kick once in a blue moon. Apart from his crossing he's pretty impotent on the field.

Because Victoria was part of one of the biggest pop groups ever!
David was the star of the biggest and best premier league team in england, and also the captain of the England team in the World Cup!
And they both also happen to be extremely good looking and make headlines because of their fashion and glamour.

Why should they not be popular? :confused:

I'd also like to know what other couples you think should be more popular than the Beckhams?

They both bore the piss out of me. Then again, lots of things that bore the piss out of me are "popular". Needless to say, I don't get it.

there's lots of people who are admired merely for their physical beauty i would think that's a major factor here ;) at least with david anyway :drool:

Why do tourists visit Manneke Pis in Brussels? It's not as if it's an awe-inspiring piece of art. It's tiny. The only reason it's famous is because some people told the tourists it's famous.

if you go to america and do interviews because you want to be famous there too then you are pretty pathetic imho :o

but if they get the space to do these things then you can't blame them when they like attention

She was the untalented one in the spice girls who pointed and whispered.

He is the most over-rated football player the world has ever seen.

Obvious really.

I don't know anything about soccer, but as for the Spice Girls, they were ALL untalented:p . I don't understand Celebrity appeal sometimes. Honestly, how Ashanti can have the number one album two weeks in a row, 50 Cent can have three number one singles in the span of three months (two top fives at the same time), and some freak, ugly bad singer named Lumidee can have a top five single that sounds like something you'd make w/ your friends on a tape recorder, is all beyond my comprehension.

You do realise that you dont need to be the best in your field in order to be famous dont you? To be famous you need more than talent, you need looks, personality, the whole package. For example, Anna Kournikova is one of the most popular tennis players, although she isnt even close to being the best or most talented. There is no correlation between popularity and talent.

You don't even need looks or personality to be famous. Being famous only means you're well known. You can be famous for being the silliest person that ever walked this earth.

Or think of Monica Lewinsky! She was actually at the Oscars.

This stuff happens with actors, singers, and athletes.
Once they get into the public eye, there are some who just have some likeability that we can't measure.
I don't buy that Anna is so much better looking than a lot of female athletes.
And if it was just good marketing, Anna would have disappeared by now.
And Beckham could become a big U.S. star. But not as a soccer player.
He would need a great commercial that ran a lot. Then Americans would know him. And then we would see.

vicky withc is ugly, but has great clothes. but too much black just aint that great.

dave becks, well, i'd sleep with him, but he isnt that cute!many more hunks out there who look better.

i think its cuz of the money issue. they were both rich enough before getting married. after the marriage, the moolah was greater.

Oh hallelujah...this is the absolute truth :worship:. About Ashanti, 50 Cent and Lumidee :worship: :worship:. Lumidee is the worst of the bunch. God :rolleyes:. That song is horrible :fiery:. And as for the Beckhams...I don't like them. But David sure is cute ;).
