Cruz Beckham, 11, faces backlash over Christmas song

Cruz Beckham Instagram photoDavid and Victoria Beckham‘s youngest son, Cruz Beckham, 11, released a single yesterday titled “If Everyday Was Christmas.” Proceeds from the single will go to the British charity Make Some Noise, which helps disadvantaged children and young people in various ways through smaller charities.

Cruz, who recently signed with Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, said during a radio interview to promote the single that it incorporates two of his favorite things: “singing and Christmas.”

The third youngest Beckham (he has a younger sister) has been teasing the single this week on his Instagram page. However, not all the feedback has been positive.

Piers Morgan, one of the hosts of the TV show Good Morning Britain, slammed the Beckhams for exploiting their son.

When both of his co-hosts said they thought the single was a good thing because it was for charity, Morgan replied, “I say, why don’t you go to school mate? Because you’re not famous, your parents are famous.” He added that the Beckhams should “stop putting these kids into the public domain while simultaneously saying ‘privacy!’.”

Scooter Braun protested on Twitter, writing, “how about you match him dollar for dollar to the charity? Instead of criticizing step up and help these kids the way Cruz is.”

To which Morgan responded: “Stop pretending this is about charity when it’s about promoting Brand Beckham & making YOU a ton of money off another young kid’s back.”

Morgan described Cruz’s singing voice in a Daily Mail article as “fairly squeaky and quite annoying.”

Check out the single below and tell us if you agree with Piers Morgan.

    Just as bad as Bieber

    I think it is ridiculous that a grown man would bad mouth a child. Reasons: #1 – If your Dad or Mom was a journalist, would you possibly consider it as a career? Or a doctor or engineer or lawyer? Well, Cruz has a Mom who was a singer. #2 – Maybe it isn’t fair that the kids of celebrities get special treatment… but so do many other entitled children (royalty, old rich, new rich, political families). #3 – One song doesn’t make a career. Once his voice changes it might be a different story. Plus, he may change his mind about what he wants (after all he is only 11). #4 – Does Piers Morgan have children? Would he make them start at the bottom and work their way to the top? Or would he want to help them in any way he could? If I was Vic or Dave Beckham I would promote his enthusiasm with everything I had. Don’t forget, there are loads of celebrity kids who accomplish zip, nada, zero. They just party and waste the time of the justice system.

    Oh for heaven sake, leave the kid alone! I don’t know why anyone would be mean about this. It’s not nice to pick on a KID WHO’S TRYING TO DO SOMETHING GOOD. Piers Morgan ‘Shhhhhhh’. He doesn’t sound horrible, he just sounds like an 11 year old boy. I thought he did a good job. People, if you can’t say anything nice then please, don’t say anything at all.

    Merry Christmas.

    Cruz did a great job of singing the song. To the critics , especially morgan, can you do better, I doubt it. Pick on someone who can defend themself and grow up while your at it.
    Where is your Christmas Spirit, are you friends with the Grinch. To everyone who was a
    critic of Cruz, many it return to you 1000 fold and learn the lesson of being nice.

    Hey the kid doesn’t sound bad for a wee boy. And he is trying to do something good for the less fortunate good for him

    Cute song. He is still very young so his singing voice still has a long way to go. Lots of children of celebrities go into show business because they are around it.
    Though I don’t always agree with P. Morgan I do agree with his response to Scooter Braun. S.Braun number one priority isn’t that the money is going to charity but making money for himself. He has a tendency to sign young boys!?

    Cute song and I think he did an amazing song. Good for him for doing this for charity.
