Here is a trip down memory lane. Do you remember the British pop band Spice Girls that took the world by storm back in the 90s? You know, the group with Melanie Brown (“Scary Spice”), Melanie Chisholm (“Sporty Spice”), Emma Bunton (“Baby Spice”), Geri Halliwell (“Ginger Spice”), and Victoria Beckham, (“Posh Spice”). Well, if you thought I was going to tell you they were coming back for a reunion, I hate to be the one to tell you that they are not…especially if it is left up to Victoria Beckham.
It looks as though their 2012 performance at the London Olympics was the last time the girls would reunite to perform, as Beckham has clearly stated that she does not want to do it again. ‘I won’t ever do it again,” she admits.
“Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor,” she continued. “I was so proud to do it; proud to be British… That was a perfect time to say, ‘That’s great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.’ Sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to leave the party.” The group officially disbanded in 2000, after six years of chart topping hits, including their first single Wannabe.
Beckham revealed that her main focus, other than her four children Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, 8, and Harper, 2, is being a fashion designer, and explains that her time spent with the group has inspired her future endeavors. “The Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women,” she said. “That’s why I do what I do today.”
I hate to be the one to burst your bubble, but I guess you will just have to keep reminiscing with the Spice Girls by watching their YouTube videos. Here are a couple for you to check out below:
