Loaded Question

by | 8th, April 2004

‘NOT only did David Beckham pick up a prize at the British Book Awards yesterday, but he also had the honour of being named as Sportsman Of The Decade by readers of Loaded magazine.

Michelle Marsh looks to the future

But Victoria will be less pleased to learn from this morning’s Star that her nemesis Jordan was also in the money, being voted Covergirl Of The Decade.

The busty model apparently beat off strong competition from Kylie Minogue, Kelly Brook and Christina Aguilera to win the prestigious award.

The award ceremony (apart from serving its normal purpose of garnering cheap publicity) was in recognition of the 10th birthday of the original lad’s mag.

It seems amazing that it was only a decade ago that someone had the idea that there were enough men with a mental age of 13 whose only interests in life were breasts, electronic gadgets and, er, breasts to support a magazine.

They were, of course, right – and wrong. Judging by the number of copycat mags – Maxim, FHM, Front, Ice, Zoo, Blah, Blah, Blah – that have sprung up since, there are even more infantile and sex-obsessed men than the founders of Loaded could have dared dream.

Will Loaded still be around in 10 years’ time? We don’t know – and care even less.

But wind the clocks forward to 2014 and we’re sure that the name on everyone’s lips will be the person voted Woman Of The Next Decade – topless model Michelle Marsh.’
