David Beckham Plays with Legos to Calm Down

David Beckham has had a long and illustrious career in football, but now he’s retired and has a bunch of free time to be a father, get his wife to smile and… play with Legos, apparently. In a feature for the Sunday Times Magazine, he opened up about his life off the pitch and it’s… kinda regular.

“When the kids finish school, they might have different activities going on like football or rugby. But when they get home we’ll often play one of their favorite games, like Connect 4.

”They also love Lego. So do I. The last big thing I made was Tower Bridge. It was amazing.

“It had about 1,000 pieces. I think Lego sometimes helps to calm me down.”

Is anything sexier than a grown man playing with Legos? Yes, that’s a joke. It’s good to hear that David is a hands-on dad and that he’s now enjoying a life of leisure. Must be nice to have the time to put together a Lego version of the Tower Bridge.

Harry Styles Thinks David Beckham Isn’t Iconic Enough

Harry Styles is in need of an icon, apparently. I guess he grew up looking up to David Beckham but now David’s getting a bit worse for wear in the icon department, apparently (says the boy band member who will be forgotten in 10 years time) and he needs someone new to come on the scene.

From OK Magazine:

“I think he was everybody’s idol when I was growing up. When people asked you that question, you almost needed a back-up answer because everyone would say, ‘David Beckham!’”

“We actually met once when we were performing in LA. He brought his kids to our concert. He’s a really nice guy.”

So, Harry’s really not meaning to offend David Beckham, he just feels like his own idol should be someone more creative. I don’t really get why it matters if a person inspires more than one other, but I guess I sorta kinda get what he’s saying?

Anyway, Harry also thinks David needs to be knighted:

“I think he really deserves it. It makes sense because he’s such a national treasure. To be honest, I already thought he was Sir David Beckham anyway!”

Fair enough.

David Beckham Wanked For Teammates

David+Beckham

This is just uncomfortable. David Beckham describes a “hazing ritual” his teammates put him through back in his early days and it sounds a lot like some twisted form of sexual abuse. Decide for yourself. From TMZ:

It happened in 1991 — when Beckham was just 16 — and he says he had to stare at a photo of a famous Welsh soccer player named Clayton Blackmore and (more or less) masturbate in front of his teammates.

He said, “Everyone had an initiation that you had to go through on the youth team, that was one of the most uncomfortable ones.”

He added, “I was embarrassed when I was saying it on camera let alone talking about it more. But it’s something that we all had to go through. It was definitely something I wouldn’t like to go through again!”

I mean, what??? Bend it like beckham indeed, muwaha.

No but really, this probably isn’t the thing to bring up when you’re hoping to get knighted. By the way, this is Clayton Blackmore:

It’s like he knows.
