Former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham Struggled With Bullies In School
Like Taylor Swift, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham also had her problems in her youth. She confesses that she struggled with bullies.
"I just stood there on my own. I didn't have any friends. People would push me around, say they were going to beat me up," quotes Glamour. Like many kids in high school, she is also a victim of bullying. She would get threats from school almost everyday. Which is why she is determined to pursue a career in modeling and dancing.
She confesses that she wanted to become famous so that they would "make them sorry."
Born in 1974, this English businesswoman, fashion designer, singer and model started her education at Essex. At a young age, she was already enamored with acting and performing. She saw the film "Fame" and decided right then and there she wanted a musical career.
Her parents then enrolled her at the Jason Theatre School. In 1991, she entered the Laine Theatre Arts in Surrey where she studied dance and modeling. To get her secondary education, she attended St. Mary's High School in Cheshunt. It was there where she encountered bullies. She recalls a time when she begged her father not to drop her off outside school when driving the Rolls Royce. She was embarrassed by their wealth.
Now, she is famous for her role as Posh Spice in the Spice Girls. She is also a model in her own right. She has graced many magazine covers and promoted several brands. She was the face of Marc Jacobs in his Spring 2008 fashion collection. Later on, she built her own fashion clothing line which depicts her style. Aside from being a celebrity and a business woman running an empire, she is also the wife of famous athlete David Beckham.
What can she say to her bullies now? Maybe she is laughing her way to the bank.
