Radar's Overrated 100

Radar coverRadar Magazine's October issue offers a hundred of the most overhyped people, places and things — and L.A.'s own* David and Victoria Beckham make the top of the list and the cover. "Its not that theyre untalented; its just that hes an overpaid soccer star and shes a pointless collection of body parts," the magazine deems. Also in The Hype Report: Pinkberry, Facebook, Frank Gehry, Brad Pitt, America Ferrer's looks, Trader Joe's and, of course, blogging. ( * the 1 or 2 days a week when he's not in Europe.)

Also in the issue: John Cook sits down with TMZ creator Harvey Levin, dubbed the Sultan of Sleaze.
