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.
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”
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?)

Listen, it’s not easy spending 8 hours a day trying to freeze your facial muscles in place so that you never break a smile, so it’s no wonder Victoria Beckham is finding it “hard” to balance her work and motherhood. While she and husband David Beckham want their four children to grow up “normal” (as normal as the kid of millionaires can be), that means an extra juggling act between their professional endeavours and their parenting responsibilities.
‘Being a working mum you feel guilty every time you go out of the door when you have to work,’ Posh said about every time she has to wave goodbye to kids Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and 21-month-old daughter Harper.
‘I try not to travel too much unless it’s during the school holidays as I don’t like to leave the kids. The children are my priority and always have been, and always will be’ the designer said at the Vogue Festival in London on Sunday.
‘It’s the same for any working mum out there. You just do your best, but constantly feel guilty. I enjoy being a mum. I love having kids more than anything and I would do anything for them.’
Well, how do I put this gently? DUH. Being torn between your children and your career is no new struggle, but imagine the women who do it a) without a second parent and b) without all the endless streams of money you’ve got, along with the staff of helpers and etc? How in the hell do you think they feel?
Sometimes I feel like celebrities say shit like this to try and sound “normal” and to make average joes who buy bullshit papers and magazines feel like they’re relatable and totally understand the struggle. Like hell you do, lady! Also, when’s someone going to come out and say that they DON’T feel bad about having a career as well as being a mother? Being fulfilled in one does not negate giving your all in the other.
Sorry, I was trying to be nice today.

David and Victoria Beckham might be two of the richest people on God’s green earth, but that doesn’t mean that their kids have to grow up to be assholes. At least not according to David, who swears that regardless of the family’s status as close to English royalty, their three sons and daughter will have a “normal” life. Uh, okay, sure, let’s go with that.
“My eldest now is at the age where he wants to do things and he wants to go places and you have to hold him back, or we have to hold him back.”
“You have to explain it to him that there are certain things that he can’t do. But to be honest, with our children, we let them do 99% of the things they want to do because we want them to lead a normal life.”
What if one of the things they want to do is like, rent out a zoo for a day and ride on the back of a cheetah through a makeshift safari? That’s not particularly normal, but I figure money could probably buy something that ridiculous if it came down to it.
Listen, there’s no way these kids are ever going to have a “normal” life. Their mother is a narcissistic fashion icon who’s smiling muscles have been broken since 1997 and their father is a world famous footballer who makes more money in a day than I will this year and next put together, probably. But I guess it’s a nice thought.

Wherever the Beckhams go, an entourage of admirers and photographers will follow. It’s pretty bizarre, actually. Victoria and David – the latter wearing more clothes than usual- took the kids to Paris on Monday, arriving at the Gare du Nord train station as if it was a red carpet premiere, complete with couture clothing, hateful side-eyes at the press and bewildered children.
Here’s what Celebrith-Gossip.net had to say about it:
Fresh off celebrating Cruz’s 8th birthday in London, David and Victoria and the rest of the Beckham brood arrived at the Gare du Nord train station in Paris on Monday (February 18).
The fashion designer matriarch looked chic in a blue and black short-sleeved top and navy skirt with her pointy heels while her dashing soccer star hubby held an adorable Harper in his arms.
Just two days earlier, the 38-year-old mother-of-four took part in London Fashion Week by helping to judge the Woolmark prize.
Along with fellow judges Diane von Furstenberg, Donatella Versace, and Natalie Massanet, she awarded the prize to an emerging international fashion talent. This year’s winner is Belgian designer Christian Wijnants.
No one can deny this is a very good looking family.

Do you recognize her? It’s little bitty Victoria Beckham, fresh out of high school! I recognized her immediately, but then my mind was like “no, stupid, quit being stupid,” but then I saw the name, and isn’t this just so strange? She just looks so different. Ok, here’s Victoria Beckham now:
And Victoria Beckham then:
I realize that it’s been 20 years, but dang, you guys. Dang. I just never remembered a time that Victoria Beckham didn’t look like a robot who was about two minutes away from needing recharged.

Did you hear that the Spice Girls are going to be performing at the closing ceremony of the Olympics? That’s a pretty big deal, right? For the entirety of 2012, we’ve been tantalized by rumors of a Spice Girls reunion, and last month all five of the girls were photographed together for the first time in years to promote that Viva Forever musical. This whole year has led up to this one moment, this one shining moment in time when all of the Spice Girls agreed to come together to spice up our lives through song once again.
And yes, Victoria Beckham has agreed to perform as well, but under one condition: this one reunion has to be the very last time that they perform, ever.
“After the Olympics I can’t imagine even talking to her again, let alone being on a stage with her. Mel B. was right, she has lost the spirit of the band.”
Geri told pals: “None of us can understand why she won’t take advantage of these opportunities. Now is the time to be together again as a band and she and Mel B. can’t be in the same room together.”
Speaking about meeting up at the Viva Forever press launch she added: “After the stunt she pulled at the Viva Forever press conference she said she’d never perform with us again and then with David not being chosen for the team, she didn’t even want to discuss it.”
Can someone please sit Victoria Beckham down and explain to her why this is ridiculous? The whole entire reason that she’s famous today, that she’s able to be a fashion designer and have sex with David Beckham, is because of that little black dress and those awful platforms. It’s because the entire world knows that “easy V doesn’t come for free, she’s a real lady.” It’s not because of any true talent that she may or may not have. It’s because of the Spice Girls. God.
Regardless of Victoria’s snobbery, I absolutely cannot wait to see these girls perform together again. Anybody else?
