Former Spice Girl singer Victoria Beckham, the wife of England soccer captain David, has confessed she has never read a book.
Despite struggling for a hit record for some time, Victoria Beckham said she never had a spare moment to leaf through anything more challenging than fashion magazines.
The Sunday Mirror newspaper revealed the shock admission after seeing a forthcoming edition of high society magazine Chic.
The confession is all the more startling given that it would appear to include her own autobiography, Learning to Fly.
"I haven't read a book in my life. I haven't got enough time. I prefer to listen to music, although I do love fashion magazines," she was quoted as saying.
