    Exactly. The cunt just needs to come and pose from time to time, is that too much asking from her?

    IT'S ALL HER FAULT

    They're not miserable, they just don't want to do a tour and record new music, and rightly so!


    VB contributed, in her own way, as much as the rest of them.

    Quite so. She was the (essential) hostile counterpoint to Geru's needy poodle

    She's called it entirely correctly. I hope she emails that to Geri, Emma and Beh.

    They really should just do an ABBA and say "NEVER AGAIN. EVER."

    I agree with Sheena. I'd be interested in the four of them without VB, I think that could work. the three of them, no way.

    I can sympathise with all of them. Geri, Emma and Mel B seem to more or less unreservedly love being Spice Girls, whereas Victoria has obviously long since moved on and Mel C, while more respectful of her legacy these days, has never made much secret of the fact that musically her heart hasn't really been in it for a long time.

    I think a tour without Victoria (and theoretically without Geri) could work, but unfortunately Mel C is far too integral to the sound, and touring with fewer than four of them is just going to look a bit sad and desperate.

    But it sucks for the other three because they obviously really want to do it, and I don't understand why they should be judged harshly for that. With ABBA the decision not to tour seems to have been very mutual.

    Doing an ABBA would've been plain WRONG. Imagine never getting the 2012 performance!

    But it was just never on the cards, despite all the questions. They've been wonderfully dogmatic about the whole thing, despite being offered MILLIONS to reconsider.

    None of ABBA actually need the money though do they?

    You'd guess than Melanie C would have wasted all her cash on her solo career.

    And Mel Beh just seems a touch extravagant despite being the most successful of the 5 (Breadstick is not as successful - being married to an icon does not make her fashion brand successful. She'll have spent all her money on platinum plated dilDEHs

    They've toured as a 4-piece before (TWICE), I don't see why wouldn't they do it again.

    Why does Mel C get a free pass? Victoria gets a (soft) free-pass from me because she's more of a Spice Girl than Geri will EVER BE: she was part fo the band for another 3 years, managed to finish a world tour (whilst preggers to boot), recorded a new album, went on another mini tour by the end of 99, recorded a couple of new singles, agreed to reunite twice in '07 and '12. It's like saying HEIDI shouldn't be in a Sugababes reunion but old SIOBHAN should (although having both of them would be wonderful).

    If Geri really wants this and Victoria doesn't, I bet she wouldn't mind having Mrs. Horner hog her lines from SYBT or Goodbye.

    Well yes, but there was no CA$H involved, apart from the budget to put the darn thing on

    Going out on the Olympics really is their GREATEST TRIUMPH

    I've just got a BEGGING LETTER from DYKE SPICE via Pledge Music which was asking me to give money for her new album and began with "You are receiving this email because you have excellent music taste".

    If so, why the fuck am I getting this shit? If you need the money for your SHIT SOLO CAREER why not team up with the rest of the CASH COW THAT MADE YOU, rather than BEGGING for it off me, you humourless old SCROTUM.

    Needless to say I have unsubscribed from the newsletter with the comment that "I am disgusted you believe not only that my musical taste correlates with liking Melanie C but that it, somehow, this equates to having excellent music taste".

    I thought she got rid of those HIDEOUS 90's tattoos ages ago; especially the one on her leg, WORST offender of them all.

    She's done one of those Guardian interviews

    When were you happiest?
    Becoming a mum quashed so many demons within me, and gave me confidence and a sense of calm.

    What is your greatest fear?
    Losing people. It’s been a sad year: I lost two dear friends to cancer.

    What is your earliest memory?
    Aged three, in a cake shop, hearing Wuthering Heights on the radio.

    What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
    That negative inner voice. Anybody who has suffered with depression knows it’s lurking.

    What is the trait you most deplore in others?
    People who revel in your misfortune.

    What was your most embarrassing moment?
    At a party in LA in 1999, a friend was lending me his car, so I leant over the person next to him and said, “Can I get the keys?” He pulled this funny face; the person sitting next to him was Madonna. I said, “Oh, sorry, I didn’t see you there.” She came back with, “Well, I am somewhat of a wallflower.”

    What is your most treasured possession?
    My bike. I’ve been doing triathlons for the past few years.

    What is your most unappealing habit?
    I crack my knuckles when I’m anxious.

    Property aside, what’s the most expensive thing you’ve bought?
    Holidays. In the Spice Girls, we found ourselves with quite a few quid, so it was lovely to hire a big house in the Caribbean and have friends and family over.

    Which book changed your life?
    The Dusty Springfield biography, Dancing With Demons. It opened my eyes to mental health problems and how hideous the tabloids can be.

    Is it better to give or to receive?
    Give. I start thinking about Christmas in September.

    What do you owe your parents?
    Determination and a strong work ethic. My mum, Joan, is a singer and she’s still out there in her 60s.

    To whom would you most like to say sorry, and why?
    The Spice Girls – Mel B, Geri and Emma – who wanted to mark our 20th anniversary, and the fans. It was not something I felt comfortable doing.


    What does love feel like?
    Safe, strong and smiley.

    Who would you invite to your dream dinner party?
    Just my best buds.

    What is the worst job you’ve done?
    Working in a chip shop when I was 16. I gave my friends massive portions, but the smell was gross.

    If you could go back in time, where would you go?

    Liverpool in the swinging 60s.

    What keeps you awake at night?

    My little girl. I often get visits just for a cuddle.

    What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
    To speak up. I spent my youth being frightened of confrontation, but I’ve realised that doesn’t serve you well.

    Tell us a joke

    Q: Why did Adele cross the road? A: To say, “Hello from the other side.”

    Don't you dare blame Kate Bush, Mel.

    The Madge retort makes up for this whole debacle. What a woman.

    This is out, I've listened to it and apart from 2 or 3 songs, it's fucking dreary.

    that goes UNSAID

    It's fucking Mel C not Ariana :disco:

    so is the album full of "oh woe is me Mel Beh bullied me during the SG days, I don't wanna be famous anymore, mummy was/is a popstar (though not a succesful one)" anthems?
