I'm Shocked -- Shocked! -- to Hear This

'I haven't read a book in my life', says Posh - People - Entertainment: "Former Spice Girl singer Victoria Beckham, the wife of England soccer captain David, has confessed she has never read a book.

Despite struggling for a hit record for some time, Victoria Beckham said she never had a spare moment to leaf through anything more challenging than fashion magazines.

The Sunday Mirror newspaper revealed the shock admission after seeing a forthcoming edition of high society magazine Chic.

The confession is all the more startling given that it would appear to include her own autobiography, Learning to Fly, and that of her husband, My Side.

'I haven't read a book in my life. I haven't got enough time. I prefer to listen to music, although I do love fashion magazines,' she was quoted as saying."

Yeah, real shocker, Bill. If she said she had read a book, that would have been news.

But for somebody, no matter how stupid they are or want to seem, to admit to this is really beyond belief.

By a strange coincidence I've never listened to one of her records. Too busy reading books.

I have heard some to her songs - at least some of the ones she did with her four little friends. Trust me Cap'n Bob, you haven't missed much. Of course she and her husband are so rich they can afford to hire people to read for them - which may explain a few things.
