Cruz Beckham’s debut cover shoot is slammed by appalled fans

Cruz Beckham has prompted a lukewarm response from fans after posing for a provocative debut cover shoot on behalf of i-D magazine. 

David and Victoria Beckham’s youngest son, who only turned 17 on Sunday, goes topless while fully exposing his underwear as he sits with his  jeans pulled down to his ankles. 

The professional shoot, carried out for i-D’s The Out Of Body issue, serves as a springboard for an interview with Justin Bieber fan Cruz about his dream of making an impact in the music industry.

But concerned fans raised the alarm on Monday evening, citing the controversial shoot – which would have taken place while he was still 16 – as shameless sexual objectification of a minor. 

Taking to Twitter, one appalled follower wrote: ‘Cruz Beckham half-naked on the cover of a magazine at 17 is such a double-standard. Imagine the outrage if it was a 17 yr old girl.’ 

Another remarked: ‘Why is it socially acceptable for Cruz Beckham to be taking photos In his underwear/grabbing his crotch/clearly showing he has tattoos under age when he was 16 when the photos were taken?! and why is Victoria hyping them? He’s a child.’

A third commented: ‘The Beckham’s 17 yo son Cruz – call me old fashioned but these pics make him look like a junkie prostitute! How terribly sad.’ 

Another bluntly added: ‘It’s disgusting.’

Cruz shared the striking front cover on Instagram on Monday, showcasing his new-found skillset.

And while the famous teen gushed over the ‘fun’ shoot, there was another topic he was keen to broach with i-D in a tell-all interview: his budding music career. 

For the Out Of Body issue, the promising musician had luxury at the heart of his look, wearing Sunspel boxers and Balenciaga jeans slung at his thighs. 

Cruz provided his own statement jewellery for the shoot, which included two silver chains, a cross-adorned earring and a selection of rings.   

The interview provided the scope for Cruz to detail how he hopes to venture into the music industry – which would see him follow in Victoria’s footsteps.

He has been working with Poo Bear of late, who is the icon behind tracks from Usher’s Confessions era and the tunes from Justin Bieber’s Purpose.

‘We’ve just been in the studio a few times and made some songs together,’ he teased.  

Patience has been key for the hard-working star, who has been teaching himself how to play an array of instruments.

‘I don’t think you ever stop learning, but I’m taking my time seeing what happens,’ he said.  

Cruz may have likened music to his ‘first love’, yet there was a time he won a contract with Arsenal. 

He admitted: ‘I thought I would want to do football and I did that for a bit,’ but after returning to music, he had the realisation: ‘This is exactly what I want to do.’
