50 Shades of Grey has found a surprising new fan in posh former pop star Victoria Beckham.
The book has lots of celebrities talking, and even Kristen Stewart has admitted to reading it. Victoria's fellow British musician Niall Horan is one of the few male stars to fess up to enjoying the erotic novel, so perhaps he and Posh Spice will have a chat about it soon. One Direction is rumored to be appearing alongside Victoria and the rest of the Spice Girls at the Olympics closing ceremony in London.
According to Entertainmentwise, Victoria says that she's such a big fan of the book that she even bought a copy for her mom. She said this about the 50 Shades of Grey series:
I'm halfway through the second one... I even bought my mum the book! Every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject. I don't really want to talk to my mum about S&M!
That's what Victoria Beckham gets for trying to spice up her mom's sex life.
Mothers and daughters all over the world are probably finding themselves in the same awkward situation since women of all ages have seemingly embraced the naughty novels. Most daughters don't want to hear their moms joke about how their father isn't very good with a whip or share all the sordid details of an experiment with nipple clamps gone awry over Sunday dinner.
While it might be difficult for moms and their daughters to discuss some of the "kinky f**kery" in the 50 Shades books, at least they can enjoy discussing which actor should play Christian Grey in the upcoming movie. There are probably plenty of women who have pictured Christian as Victoria's hot hubby, David Beckham, but he doesn't really have the acting credentials for the job. Victoria didn't reveal who she would like to see in the movie, but surely she's feeling a lot of national pride recently because of the Olympics and would pick a fellow Brit like Robert Pattinson, Henry Cavill, Tom Hardy, or Hugh Dancy.
It would certainly be interesting to know who she pictures when she reads the books. Does she imagine Christian Grey as David Beckham, or does she picture another hot hunk? What do you think?
