If you’ll permit me to go all Perez Hilton for a minute, have you ever seen Becks look as bad as he does right now? He looks like an emaciated soldier, which is a far cry from his earlier days in LA, when he looked a picture of health and happiness (not to mention extreme wealth). And that hairstyle has to go – purleeeeease!
There are three possible reasons for this deterioration:
a) He’s now eating his wife’s cooking and nothing else
b) He’s been staring at LA Lakers cheerleaders for way too long
c) He’s on the skag – playing in front of an MLS defence will do that to a man
