Fans think they've spotted a line of cocaine in the Spice Girls reunion photo
Yesterday, we got the best news of 2018 so far: The Spice Girls are finally getting back together. Or, in their own words, "exploring new incredible opportunities together". Every girl who sang Wannabe into a hairbrush when she was younger was overjoyed and simply couldn't wait for the girl power group to spice up her life again.
However, others weren't as concerned with the reunion as they were with the mysterious white line seen in the background of Victoria Beckham's Instagram post. Eagle-eyed fans went into overdrive with suspicion when they spotted a "mysterious white substance" on a phone sitting in the backdrop of a picture of the five singers. Keen to call the band out, many took to Twitter to accuse the fivesome of indulging in a little more than just spice.
However, despite so many social media users being eager to fuel the rumor mill, there was one important fact that they were missing: they were wrong.
Those who spread the rumor on social media must have been sorely disappointed to discover that their eyes deceived them and the "white substance" in question was just a reflection of light on the phone screen. Just looking at the picture makes it clear that the white line comes from the way the light hits the phone screen and not from any Class A drug. I guess it's true what they say, don't believe everything you hear - or everything you read on Twitter, in this case.
Fortunately, the nasty rumor is unlikely to kill the insane buzz around the band's reunion. After they were pictured together at Geri Horner's house in Hertfordshire, England - the first time all five girls have been in the same room since 2012 - their meeting quickly went viral and fans were driven batty with suspicion that a larger reconciliation was on the cards.
Victoria Beckham's representative confirmed everything we were all hoping for after, releasing a statement from the girls that read: “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for the Spice Girls. The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.”
Unfortunately, there have been no further details on what exactly those "opportunities" are just yet, but reports from the British press suggest that the group want to release a greatest hits album, secure some new endorsements, and land a TV show in China. As for new music, Posh Spice is said to not be keen; but, hey, we live in hope.
This is not the first reunion the Spice Girls, who first got together back in 1994, have enjoyed; the group embarked on a tour of Europe and the US back in 2007 and performed at the London Olympic opening ceremony in 2012.
Putting the Class A drug rumor mill firmly to one side, I know that whatever "new incredible opportunities" they come up with, I want to be a part of them. Viva Forever!
