Stella McCartney and her extremely well dressed stylist husband are “spitting feathers” that David Beckham posted a picture of his daughter Harper’s Buckingham Palace princess birthday party to Instagram that included McCartney’s six year old daughter. Ask your British friend what spitting feathers means. The Brits call anal gang rape a tea-cocking. Everything sounds modestly civil.
McCartney’s daughter wasn’t tagged in the photo, but identified by women who know what celebrity kids look like because they’re creepy and lonely and can’t produce attractive children of their own. McCartney and her boot designing husband (second drop) have made an attempt to keep their kids out of any social media or publicity photos. She’s even “alerted staff” to keep the kids out of photo ops when the staff happen to be in charge of the children. So, most of the time.
In contrast, The Beckhams who milk their children for every single last drop of social media juice. David Beckham shares photos on Instagram like a twelve year old girl. Which is unbecoming of a forty-two-year old girl. Though he turns it into something magical by invading their privacy then writing things like…
“The moments I share with my children are incredibly special. Whether that’s laughing together when they tell me things about their day on the drive home from school, reading one of their favorite books to them at bedtime or spending time together on holiday.”
Though not incredibly private. It’s slightly better than the excuses people made to send their kids into the factories during the Industrial revolution. But still plainly exploitative.
There was already trouble brewing from Beckham’s princess party photos since Buckingham Palace isn’t supposed to host birthday parties like an upscale Chuck E. Cheese. Even for connected famous people. It’s a taxpayer funded statehouse. Somehow Prince Andrew and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson gave the go-ahead. With the understanding that nobody expose their ruse with attention getting selfies and Instagram pics. Beckham can’t be stopped.
Now the Beckhams risk losing their friendship with the McCartney’s blossomed in 2010 when David hired Stella’s husband to be his wardrobe stylist (third drop). Watch House of Cards if you’re still not getting this.
