It could have been one of the great meetings of our time; a "Doctor Livingstone, I presume" for the 21st Century.
Instead, Britney meeting the Beckhams was even better than that: Britney didn't have a clue she was supposed to know who they were:
“But Britney had no idea who she was. She just looked at her with a vacant and bemused expression and turned and walked away.”
Victoria Newton simply cannot believe that Britney would have no idea who Victoria thingy is:
But the Spice Girls were huge in the States and you’d have thought that, as a fellow pop star, Britney might have caught a glimpse of the girl band at some stage.
In fact, Newton wonders if not recognising the great Victoria Beckham - famous for, erm, you know, stuff - might not be it's a sign of a need for rehab:
In contrast to Britney’s fall from grace, Posh has made a real splash in the States, enjoying the company of a host of top stars.
(Well done for remembering the Spice reunion fawning, Victoria - every little helps.)
