The Spice Girls

Mel C has penned an essay for Love Magazine on how fame has changed since her day, and why she’ll never be involved in another Spice Girls reunion.

“I will be a Spice Girl until I die”, she writes. “But the continuous speculation on whether we will reform to celebrate 20 years of ‘Wannabe’ has been particularly exhausting. Don’t get me wrong – I totally get it. But is it a new rule that bands have to reform? Why can’t we just be remembered for our incredible achievements in the 90s”.

Not that she hadn’t toyed with the idea of a reunion. She continues: “Truth be told, earlier this year after several face-to-face meetings with the girls I made the difficult decision not to be part of a proposed reunion with Emma, Geri and Melanie. Victoria had already bowed out understandably with the demands of her fashion label and her rather large family”.

She concludes that “something didn’t feel quite right and I had to follow my gut”.
