The Spice Girls confirm reunion with Instagram selfie
Great news, everyone! Britain's number one pop band is reuniting. No, not The Beatles. Nobody cares about them anymore. (Did they even have any hits?) I'm talking about The Spice Girls: Baby, Sporty, Scary, Ginger, Victoria Beckham. I mean, Posh. It's true - friendship never ends. (It just goes on hiatus until people need money.)
There have been rumors about a Spice Girls reunion for months. It's what the fans want, what they really, really want, but despite the demand, talks seemed to fall apart. Reportedly, Victoria was the big hold-out, since she's busy with her fashion line. Geri Halliwell (aka Ginger Spice) said she tried to get the gang to reunite for a while, but it was harder than expected. "I really pushed to get everyone back together," said Geri. "It got to the point where I had to let it go."
Well, good things happen to those who wait. For the first time in six years, the Spice Girls have reunited. Victoria posted a selfie on her Instagram account, writing in the caption: "Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!!" Geri replied, "Lovely seeing the girls #girlpower is alive and well!" Emma (aka Baby Spice) echoed her words, exclaiming "Great catch up with my girls! #bffs always the future is looking spicy." And the other two Spice Girls probably said something nice too.
Reportedly, the group is planning an upcoming tour in which each of the five members will earn £10 million. (Wow.) They're also considering a greatest hits album, and television projects in China and Britain. But don't get too excited if you're a Posh Spice fan, because apparently she won't be singing, because it might hurt her fashion business. (Wait, what? Are her vocals that bad?)
A source told The Sun:
"After a long period of negotiation Victoria agreed the time is right to work on new projects this year. It’s very exciting because she has always been adamant she wouldn’t go back…Victoria and Geri agreed it would be impossible to be part of a fully-fledged tour because of family and business commitment. Now that she’s a top designer Victoria is concerned about singing but she wants to make money to pump back into her business."
The group also released an official statement:
"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. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations."
