Victoria Beckham Wants To Be A Nice ‘Idol’ Judge
August 8, 2009 – Victoria Beckham was in the studio with Ryan Seacrest of KIIS FM in Los Angeles on Friday (August 7), talking about joining ‘American Idol’ as a guest judge, filling the seat of departing judge Paula Abdul. Like Paula, Posh plans on being friendly with the contestants.
“I want to be nice to people,” she said. “I know how it feels to be stood there and be judged and how it can feel when nerves get the better of you, and I don’t want to shatter anybody’s dream. But at the same time, there’s nothing wrong with a little bit of constructive criticism. It’s doing it nicely, because even those that are bad, they don’t know that they’re bad and who am I to shatter that?”
