Think of Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez’s music and footballer David Beckham doesn’t immediately spring to mind. So imagine his teammates’ surprise when they discovered the pop couple’s hits on his iPod.
But as it turns out, the Brit soccer star, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, and who previously said his musical tastes includes hardcore rappers like Eminem, Jay-Z and reggae legend Bob Marley, is a secret pop lover.
Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, told The Sun newspaper that he was shocked after scrolling through his teammate’s iPod.
“We were looking through his play-list in the dressing room – there was lots of Justin Bieber, Jonas Brothers and Selena Gomez,” he said.
While taken aback, Ibrahimovic admits he was relieved to discover the mighty Beckham had — in his opinion — a musical achilles heel.
“We were expecting some cool English rock bands and hip-hop,” he added. “It is nice to know that even David Beckham doesn’t have good taste on everything.”
Beckham’s wife, the fiercely fashionable ex-Posh Spice, who is now a big name designer in her own right, may have something to say about the not-so-subtle accusation that her husband has ‘bad taste.’
Mother to sons Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz who is eight, and the couple’s only daughter Harper Seven, who turns two this summer, Victoria caused quite the stir when she tweeted a selfie with a bobbed hair on Wednesday.
The reason? The fashion maven was seen arriving in Paris on Thursday on a Eurostar train from London, with a full head of long, lustrous locks.
But, fear not. The good folk at Elle magazine think they know what’s at the root of the hair mystery.
Extensions. Put them in, take them out, put them back in again. It’s quite simple really when you think about it.
Now, if only her husband’s secret Justin Bieber-Selena Gomez playlist was as easy to decipher?
