Victoria Beckham: 'I'm a Control Freak'

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LONDON) -- Victoria Beckham puts all of her efforts into her career in the fashion industry so she can assume full control. It’s also a world where she feels she belongs.

In an interview in the March issue of Elle UK, Beckham admits that she likes to be in charge of things.

"You've got to trust people.  And because I am a control freak, sometimes that's difficult for me, because I want to micro-manage absolutely everything,” she explains.

"I can't hand over.  But I'm trying to do that more.  It's hard because I have such a specific vision," says Beckham.

Beckham, otherwise known as Posh Spice, declares, "I don't have to work, I need to work.  All these people [her fellow fashion designers], they've not just been given anything.  They've worked hard.  And I've never been given anything either.  But I have a good work ethic."

Beckham adds, "I want my kids to have a good work ethic.  I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it."

Having her own career is a way for her to step out of the shadow of her former band mates and her soccer superstar husband, David Beckham.

“When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me.  And when I go out with David and people take pictures I think, 'They're here to take David's picture,'" says Victoria.

The future is somewhat of an open book for the Beckhams and their four children.  David has finished up his contract with the L.A. Galaxy, which means the family could now re-locate to another city -- or country.

“We are starting a new chapter in our lives; as a family we are all very excited about what lies ahead for 2013," adds Victoria.

Beyonce, Jay-Z Top "Forbes'" List of World's Highest-Paid Celeb Couples

Al Bello/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Beyonce and Jay-Z are movin' on up.  When Forbes released its list of the world's highest-paid celebrity couples last year, the hip-hop power couple was the runner-up for the top spot.  This year, they've climbed to number one.

The magazine points out that though Beyonce put the brakes on her whirlwind schedule in 2011 to welcome into the world her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, the mommy still raked in dough during her maternity leave.  According to Forbes, Beyonce pulled in large sums from her old hits, and that's on top of the money she's made from her platinum-selling album 4.

Between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012, Forbes reports that Beyonce earned $40 million, thanks in part to her non-musical ventures, including a fragrance collection.

As for Jay-Z, he made millions as part of The Throne, which sold out arenas on a global tour.  He stacked slightly less dough than his wife, with Jay earning $38 million between May 1, 2011 and May 1, 2012.  Some of his money came from non-musical enterprises, including cosmetics company Carol's Daughter and ad firm Translation, according to Forbes.

Together, Beyonce and Jay-Z collected an annual income of $78 million.

Second on Forbes' list is supermodel Gisele Bundchen and her quarterback-husband, Tom Brady.  Combined, the duo pulled in $72 million between May of 2011 and May of 2012, thanks to her modeling work, his NFL salary, and their respective endorsement deals.

David and Victoria Beckham rank third with $54 million, ahead of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who raked in $45 million, and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, who collected $40 million.
