How Will You Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Spice Girls?

If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably spend it feeling old as shit. Seriously, think about: 2014 makes the Spice Girls, as a group, 20 years old. WHAT? Time flies when your ’90s girl groups retire… or something (that was a terrible saying). Either way, Mel B is hoping for a reunion next year to mark the special occasion and thinks it’d be a bit silly if they didn’t do something to honour the group that made any of their careers possible.

From MTV News:

“It will be our 20th year anniversary next year so I’m hoping we do get together and do something,” Mel B told MTV News. “It kind of would be a shame if we didn’t.”

I agree! I mean, they did sort of already have a mini reunion with the whole Olympics thing, so I doubt it’ll have as much of a bang as they’d like. However, I don’t think anyone in their right minds would turn down another Spice Girls event. HELLO? They’re amazing.

I feel like the only person who might hold up the process/be difficult about it is Victoria Beckham, and to be honest, she was the worst in the group and they could do without her, so…

Spice Girls Musical Shut Down (There Was A Spice Girls Musical?)

Viva Forever, a musical based on the works of the Spice Girls in London’s West End, was cancelled. Judging by that photo it looks like it was basically just a group of women dressed as Spice Girls singing Spice Girls songs, and it probably was, but now I’LL NEVER KNOW. It opened only last December. Mamma Mia it is not.

Emma Bunton/Baby Spice tweeted (via EOnline), “I am totally gutted that our wonderful show @vivaforever is coming to an end. Thank you to all our amazing fans for your constant support!”

Geri Halliwell/Ginger managed to put her truth or dare game with Mel B/Scary on hold to tweet “We love u all @vivaforever @emmabunton @MelanieCmusic @OfficialMelB @victoriabeckham #what a shocka , gutted .x”

Mel C/Sporty tweeted “Absolutely devastated our wonderful show is closing. Thank you to our brilliant cast and everybody who made the show so incredible.” that Mel B retweeted.

Victoria Beckham/Posh tweeted nothing because she’s Victoria Beckham. Or because she’s ~~too busy being a working mum~~.

All this tweeting makes me realize even more that journalists can quite easily become obsolete. No one releases real statements anymore. Unless it’s an “I was drunk and I’m sorry” statement that needs more than 140 characters.

In conclusion, slam your body down a-zig-ah-zag-ah. (What’s YOUR favorite Spice song?)

Quotables: The Spice Girls Love Each Other Very Much, And Also Boobs

A photo of Melanie Brown

“I love boobs. Me and the other Spice Girls are always having a feel of each other’s – Geri came up behind me and grabbed mine the other day.”

- Scary Spice lets us in on what goes on, and presumably what went on, behind the closed doors of that fabulous Spice Girls tour bus.

But really, who doesn’t love boobs? Seriously, who doesn’t? Because whether it’s because of a sexual attraction or for aesthetic reasons, or even just because they’re fun to poke and squish, I’ve never heard of anyone who didn’t have the utmost love and affection for boobs. They’re something that can unite us all, and I think that’s really special.

Also, I know some of you get upset that we don’t talk about boobs enough here, so this is for you guys. We can make this sort of a general discussion, if you’d like, about boobs. Spice Girl boobs, celebrity boobs, regular old boobs. Whatever you want, ok? This is your time.
