As David and Victoria Beckham weather through what seems like a never-ending string of gossip regarding the strength of their 11-year marriage, Posh assures all of us that she and Becks are 'soul mates' who can survive all this nonsense. The former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer raves about her hubby's sexy physique, too, in the November issue of Marie Claire: "He never looks like s*** in the morning. Never."
The Mum of Brooklyn, Romeo, and Cruz also scoffed at the suggestion that David's high-pitched voice can be particularly annoying, adding "I don't really notice [it]. I just think he's so *Goddam [sic] perfect that people have to find something wrong with him." Vic, you are so damn lucky, it's not even funny. (The Daily Mail)

Eminem leads the male nominations with four, while Muse will look bring home three awards. I'm rooting for the gorgeous boys in the synth-pop duo, Hurts, who are up against 2008 X Factor champion Alexandra Burke and rapper Professor Green for the Push Act award. Have a look at their video for their stunning "Better Than Love" and you'll see why.

– Simon Cowell, what a man! Lord Alan Sugar thinks he's special enough to be called "Sir" and fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy is likely to think the same thing about the often-brusque X Factor judge. Word on the street is that the pair are actively house-hunting for a love nest in the well-to-do area of Buckinghamshire. The price tag: an estimated $14 million. What a man, indeed. (The Sun)
