PostSubject: Posh and David Beckham dubbed celebrity super-couple   Mon Dec 31, 2007 2:01 pm

HOLLYWOOD lost out in this year's race for the celebrity super-couple as Posh and Becks set themselves up as arguably the globe's most famous pair.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie -- aka Brangelina -- gave it their best shot by setting up in hurricane devastated New Orleans and helping the Big Easy recover from its devastation.

Tom Cruise and his third wife Katie Holmes -- aka Tomkat -- also tried.

Katie even ran the New York marathon and her famous husband didn't let her hog the limelight.

He and their toddler daughter Suri caught up with her for a quick but sweaty kiss mid-way.

But all their efforts were in vain with the celebrity twosome tag of the year being taken out by a Pommy soccer player and his pop singer wife.

Not satisfied with being pin-ups in Britain and just about everywhere soccer's played and Spice Girls were remembered, David Beckham and Victoria -- aka Posh 'n Becks -- tried to kick goals in the biggest fame game of all -- the US.

As the year ends, the pair have positioned themselves as a world-wide celebrity super couple.

Their world domination started on July 1 this year when David signed to US soccer team LA Galaxy for a cool $250 million and he and Posh packed their bags and headed to Los Angeles.

For a long time, Victoria had wanted to make it big in America, and this was her chance.

Before she went, she strongly -- but not very believably -- denied fame was her aim.

"We're not out to be the most famous people in America. We're not looking at the move as boosting the brand," she said earlier this year in W magazine.

"We kind of keep to ourselves, really," she said.

But that bit of hooey was exposed about two weeks after the couple stepped foot on US soil -- to a barrage flashing cameras.

That's when the documentary Victoria Beckham: Coming To America aired in the US. It was panned by almost every critic.

The highlight was Posh in stilettos on a baseball field, making a parody of herself.

The documentary and Becks's massive contract with LA Galaxy, which was pulling crowds like never before in US soccer, made them targets for the paparazzi.

Sydney got a glimpse of Beckham's crowd-pulling power late last month, when he arrived in town full of fanfare for a sell-

out game of 80,000 against Sydney FC. Everywhere he went -- through all the teenage screams, flashing cameras -- he was polite and smiled.

Victoria couldn't make it down to Australia this time to support her husband as she was busy with a reunion with '90s super group the Spice Girls.

The group featuring Victoria, Melanie "Scary Spice" Brown, Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell, Melanie "Sporty Spice" Chisholm, and Emma "Baby Spice" Bunton split at the end of 2000.

A reunion had always been on the cards, but was put off a number of times as Chisholm wasn't having a bar of it, but she changed her mind early this year.

Since the split in 2000, Victoria, who has weakest vocals out of the five, had become a superstar thanks to her marriage to David and her many ads.

She was the driving force behind the reunion.

In a revealing documentary this month the public was given an insight into her abnormal life.

She said what she was most looking forward to about the reunion was spending quality time with females again.

The tour has been such a success, concerts in Sydney in January have been postponed until possibly March and there's talk they will come to Melbourne for at least one or two shows.

On the group's website this week, Posh denied her fame had caused backstage fighting, and said it was all about the kids for the spicy "mums".

"My boys really are the reason that I am doing this and to have them up there with me was a very proud moment."

This was a big year for the Beckhams, and the Posh 'n Becks juggernaut looks like crashing through 2008 as well.
