Will There Be A Spice Girls Reunion For The 2012 London Games?
The Spice Girls were a huge hit in the 1990’s with songs such as Wannabe and Spice Up Your Life, and even previously reformed for a world tour in 2007-2008. Since February 2008 however, when the tour ended in Toronto, there has been very little out of camp spice. That is until now.
Mel B, who went by the moniker Scary Spice, recently helped restart the rumors of a possible reunion when talking to Star Magazine. She told the magazine that she would “never say never” when it came to reuniting with the other girls and that “I think it’s possible”. She followed up by saying that “I’d love it if we got back together and got to go on tour”.
As for having the Spice Girls sing at the 2012 London Games this summer, Geri Halliwell (who is also known as Ginger Spice), said in an interview with The Mirror that “singing at the games is a great idea and would be an amazing opportunity.”
Now if you think it’s a done deal because two former members are up for the idea, hold onto your hats. Melanie Chisholm (Sporty Spice) and Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) aren’t as enthusiastic. Chisholm recently released her fifth solo album, and has expressed interest in remaining a solo artist. In an interview with Contact Music she said “I don’t need that” in reference to a Spice Girls reunion. As for Beckham, she hasn’t publicly come out and said she wasn’t up for the idea, but she really doesn’t need to be a part of it either. She’s all ready hugely successful in other aspects of her life, with both publicity (being married to David Beckham certainly helps there) and financially (what with her hugely successful fashion line and all).
As for the fifth member, Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), there has been no word whatsoever. She’s kept mum on the idea, but one would suspect if everyone else was up for it, she’d be up for it as well. After all she’s seen hanging out with the other girls from time to time.
What do you think? Is a Spice Girls reunion a good thing? Or should they just let the group stay a part of pop culture?
