Spice Girls spark revival speculation with reunion photo
All five members of the Spice Girls reunited in London on Friday. Victoria Beckham posted an image from the special occasion, sparking speculation that a new collaboration is imminent.
“Love my girls!!! So many kisses!!! X Exciting x#friendshipneverends #girlpower,” wrote Beckham (Posh), who is surrounded by Melanie C (Sporty), Emma Bunton (Baby), Geri Halliwell (Ginger), and Mel B (Scary) in the image, which was seemingly taken in a cozy, candle-lit living room.
Bunton echoed the sentiment on Twitter:
Britain’s The Sun reported ahead of the photo that a “secret meeting” was planned for the Spice Girls and manager Simon Fuller to discuss “TV projects in China, a new telly talent show, endorsement deals, and a compilation album celebrating their greatest hits.” There’s reportedly a caveat, however: Beckham does not want to provide vocals for any reunion projects, The Sun reports.
While a project has not yet been announced, one thing’s for sure: getting all five ladies together took a major change of heart, miracle of diplomacy, or both. Rumors have swirled for years that both Beckham and Mel C were opposed to a reunion, and at one point, three of the ladies — Brown, Halliwell, and Bunton — explored forming a mini group named GEM that never materialized.
