Victoria Beckham covers Interview Germany Magazine June/ July 2012, covering her face in a (literal) ironic pose given that the interview itself centers around Beckham’s solemn facial expressions and how it’s affecting people’s perceptions of her.
Beckham has spoken before about how she’s portrayed as just another gaunt, miserable fashionista with no personality. But that’s clearly not how the 36-year-old designer sees herself. She sees herself as the “every-woman” who’s relatable, approachable, and cheerful. Although her rebuttals feel a little forced. Moreover, she’s saying the same thing, again, while insisting it’s her point that doesn’t bear repeating.
On people thinking she’s miserable: “Yes, I created this persona and I’m very different from that. I don’t feel like I have to scream and shout about it; I know I am a happy person. So I don’t get upset when people comment on the fact that I look quite miserable all the time. But people think I am. And you know, sometimes I think the same thing when I look at the pictures.”
On being a terrible singer: “Was music my talent really? No, I don’t think I was particularly talented,” she admits. “With the other girls, the five of us all really worked together. But talented? I sound a bit odd to myself.” - via Interview Germany Magazine.
