Spice Girls 20th anniversary: Mel B says it would be rude not to celebrate
The Spice Girls made their official debut in 1996 when they released Spice — and Mel B (a.k.a. Scary Spice) is ready to get the gang back together for a celebratory reunion.
“To be serious, it is our 20th anniversary this year and it would be rude not to celebrate,” she said on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man New Year’s Eve, the Mirror reports. “So hopefully something will be happening pretty soon … I can’t tell you what it is yet.”
Mel B has been vocal about wanting to reunite the Spice Girls all year. She pitched the idea on a visit to The Tonight Show, spoke about the possibility in an interview with The Sun, and appeared on the Today show in August and said, “Hopefully, you know, we’ll gather the troops around and we’ll get to do something to celebrate it next year.” No official reunions plans have been made just yet, though.
The Spice Girls last released an album in 2000 before going on a hiatus to pursue solo careers. They embarked on a world tour and released new music in 2007 and 2008, and helped promote Viva Forever!, a live musical made up of Spice Girls songs, in 2012.
