Fallen idol

22 Sep

At least David Beckham scored from a free kick to earn Real Madrid a much-needed win last night.

But Media Guardian speculates that his contract with another ailing name, Marks & Spencer, might be terminated early. It appears that Beckham is devalued as a celebrity now he’s less visible in Britain.

I’m sceptical about our obsession with celebrity and didn’t enjoy Hamish Pringle’s Celebrity Sells – an extended advertisement for big budget marketing communications.
