I called this last time the topic of a Spice Girls 20th anniversary reunion was on the table: Victoria Beckham wouldn’t do it. She’s too far up her own ass and takes herself far too seriously to ever do it, unfortunately. Indeed, she’s proven me right in a new interview with Vanity Fair (via the Daily Mail), insisting that the past is the past and she’s got zero interest in it:
“I won’t ever do it again. Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor. 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 Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women. That’s why I do what I do today.”
Look, I get that the Spice Girls are old news at this point. They’ve been out of the spotlight and disbanded for over a decade, so it makes sense that they’ll each have moved on with their lives. However, Victoria Beckham’s life wouldn’t be what it is today without that group. It literally made her entire career. No one’s saying you need to do a full-on tour or anything like that, but why not indulge the fans – and even yourselves, to remind you of where you got your start – just for fun once every 20 years? Because it undermines your “serious” fashion career now? Give me a break.
In any case, I don’t think anyone will be all that surprised to read this. It’s not like she seemed all that thrilled to be performing at the Olympics, either:
