Victoria Beckham. Despite her numerous achievements since the days of Girl Power (fashion designer, super-mum, in fact, pretty much everything apart from singing…) most of us still think of her as the tight-lipped ice queen from the Spice Girls. Part of this is undoubtedly down to her unfailing ability to never crack a smile when faced with paparazzi, screaming fans, or David Beckham’s bod. (If we woke up to that face every morning, we’d find it pretty much impossible to stop smiling).
However, recently Victoria seems to have made a conscious effort to shed her Posh persona; speaking out against the public perception of her, and even being a little bit (dare we say it) funny? In a recent feature in Interview Magazine, VB explained that she’s ‘very different’ from how people see her, saying: 'They really believe I’m like that. And when I see these photos, I feel the same way. I look at them and think: 'Oh gosh, you moody cow.'
She even went on to poke fun at herself, commenting that music might not be where her talent lies: 'Was music my talent really? No, I don’t think I was particularly talented... With the other girls, the five of us all really worked together. But talented? I sound a bit odd to myself.' VB, we love you, but we could have told you that years ago.
And in a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Victoria opened up and told how she’d done a bit of a David Cameron and left Brooklyn behind in the kitchen instead of taking him to school: 'So I jump in my Range Rover, put the car seat in, put my iPod on—obviously very important—and I drive to school. And then I realize, I’d left Brooklyn in the kitchen. I was driving along, talking away, and all the sudden, I looked at the front seat, and I was like, “S**t! S**t! I’ve forgot something!'
And then of course, there are VB’s infamous twitpics, where she paps herself in various ‘amusing’ situations. Most recently, she treated us to one of her pretending to drive a plane and even one of her almost smiling whilst posing with fans. Let's not forget we've also seen the designer playing an air hostess, serving coffee at Starbucks, grabbing BFF Eva Longoria's breasts and, most brilliantly, cupping her hubby's golden balls.
So what do you think? Is our VB actually human after all and not just a superhuman-superskinny-supertalented robot? Scroll through our gallery of her most recent twitpics above and decide for yourself. Or just fawn over the stupidly cute photos of her dog Harry rolling around in one of her dresses.
