I’m all for everyone having their own creative outlets, but is this necessary? A musical about the life of a football player??? The man behind it claims that Beckham’s life is a “modern-day fairytale of heroes, villains, love, Manchester United and what it means to lead your country.” Apparently, the musical will portray football as a new modern day religion, with Becks as the Jesus figure and the stadium as the modern day church.
I know he’s a superstar and a seemingly ok person, and that football is pretty much the most popular sport in the world, but this is a little much. Are we as a people getting easier to entertain, or just slowly losing IQ points? What’s next? Paris Hilton: The Musical – Poor little rich girl in a tabloid world?
