Poll Results # 8

That was a lot more votes than I thought the poll would get this week. There was a definite winner for this one and a couple who didn't get any votes at all. The question was Which Spice Kid do you think has the best name? The results in order of most voted for are....

Romeo James Beckham (with 43% of the vote)

Brooklyn Joseph Beckham (with 18% of the vote)

Phoenix Chi Brown (with 12% of the vote)

Bluebell Madonna Halliwell (also with 12% of the vote)

Beau Lee Jones (also with 12% of the vote)

Angel Iris Murphy Brown (with 0% of the vote)

Cruz David Beckham (also with 0% of the vote)

Poor Angel and Cruz. They didn't get any votes, oh well it was a slow week. Romeo is the winner by a mile. I just read that Romeo is epileptic, was I completely asleep when that was announced? Poor kid. For this weeks poll, lets move on to the Girls acting careers. I want to know (judging from what you've seen) which Girl you think has the greatest potential as an actress? Whether you judge the girls by their performances in Spice World or by acting jobs since (Geri on Sex And The City, Emma on Absolutely Fabulous, Victoria on Ugly Betty etc) is up to you. Vote away and I'll see you in 2008.


Melanie B Is Much More Music Hostess

Wow, you take two days off and suddenly your behind lol. For all you Canadian fans out there, yesterday a special aired on Much More Music called "Your Fave Video's Of The 80's" and the host (from her very own living room in LA) was the lovely Mel B.

Yours truly even missed this one, but fear not the five episode special will be airing again New Years Eve (afternoon) starting at 12pm according to Much More's website schedule.

Speaking of Spice Specials, if you missed it on CTV or you don't feel like watching it here, you can watch the Spice Girls: Giving You Everything documentary also on Much More Music New Years Eve at 7pm. Happy Viewing.

Posh Robbery

After the news that Melanie B had lost her bracelet from David Beckham, I was quick to give a mighty hoorah to Spice fan David who had called up their management company to set up a return of the missing piece. Some might say that it would be a poor fan indeed who wouldn't have done the same thing but wait until you hear this story.

Victoria was robbed during their show in Germany. After the Girls performed their sold out show at the Koln Arena on December 20th, Victoria went backstage to find thousands of dollars worth of her designer clothes and jewellery stolen. Victoria is reportedly very upset that among the pieces stolen was a red satin robe custom designed by Roberto Cavalli with Mrs. Beckham engraved on the front and Posh on the back. All the other Girls dressing rooms were untouched.

I'm sure half of her stuff will end up on Ebay or something. I'd hate to think what some kinky freak might be doing with her tour costumes.... Ew. What an awful thing for somebody to do before Christmas. Shame on you, whoever you are. Poor Form.

Jimmy Files Suit

Hello all, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Mine was lovely. Special thanks to visitor Dan from London for the Christmas message, it was very much appreciated and I'm so glad you enjoy the site. So without further ado, here are a few posts.

Melanie B's ex-husband and former Spice Boy Jimmy Gulzar filed papers a few weeks ago regarding their daughter Phoenix Chi. Jimmy, who has had a visitation schedule with his daughter since the two split back in 2000, is reportedly upset that his schedule has been disrupted by Melanie taking Phoenix along with her on the Reunion Tour.

Papers were filed trying to keep Melanie from taking Phoenix on the road for three months but the judge ruled in favor of our Mel who was awarded custodial parentship after their divorce.

Who on earth would deny their child the right to see the world? What a moron. It's only 3 months Jimmy... live with it.


Merry Christmas From Me

I'm just going off to make a few cookies for tomorrow but before I do I wanted to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. I've had so much fun working on this blog these past couple of months and I'm glad that...well that somebodies been reading it lol. Thanks as always, have a great day tomorrow and keep tuning in.

Kyle James

PS. Watch the Girls singing 2 Become 1 on Strictly Come Dancing here.

Emma's Strange Gift

And so the madness continues. Melanie B's eyelashes, Melanie C's socks and now the Girls are holding a competition for one of their fans to win Emma's ankle cast which was applied following her sprain during the Las Vegas show. Emma has signed the cast and now it can be part of your collection providing you know the answer to this question.

What is the name of the solo hit that Emma performs during The Return Of The Spice Girls show?

If you know the answer send it in with your name, age, and address to competitions@thespicegirls.com. Melanie B is trying to get Geri and Victoria to give away something bizarre as well. Maybe Vicki will break a heel on one of her stilettos one night and send it in.

Victoria Blogs Of Madrid And Missing Braceletes

Here is the lastest Spice Blog from Victoria who seems to have lived everywhere lol. Read ahead to see what I mean.


I'm writing this on the plane on the way home from Madrid - I can't believe it was our last show of 2007, the time is going by so fast. It was great to return to Madrid having lived there for so long. I had the chance to say hello to some friends before the show, which is always nice.

We're having so much fun on tour. I know it sounds like a cliche but it really is the truth. I think for me, the highlight so far was Tuesday night at The 02 Arena in London and having our kids on stage with us during Mama. I've said this lots of times before but my boys really are the reason that I am doing this and to have them up there with me was a very proud moment.

Talking of the show on Tuesday, Mel B lost her bracelet as it flew off into the audience and we want to say a big thank you to David who picked it up and contacted our management company to tell us that he had it. We're grateful to him for being so honest and we'll be meeting up with him before one of our shows in January to thank him in person.

Roberto Cavalli came along to a couple of the shows in London. He has worked so hard on our amazing costumes so it's great for him to see us up there performing in them.

We have a little break now and then we'll be back at The 02 Arena in the new year before heading up to Manchester, where there is always a fantastic atmosphere so we're excited about that. On a personal note, I'm really looking forward to performing in Manchester as we lived there for quite a while and I really love it.

I'm really looking forward to Christmas, to spending time with David, the boys and my family. We are taking the boys to see Father Christmas and they are so excited!

We're about to land so I have to go now but thank you all so much for your support. I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and we'll see you in January!

Lots of love


Well done to Mr. Fan David for returning Melanie B's bracelet, most people would keep a thing like that. You're one of the good ones sir, right proper.

Poll Results # 7

I know this question might have been a bit difficult since all of the tinmation Spice Girls are a little scary looking, but one did come up on top. The question was which tinmation Spice Girl fairy from the Viva Forever video is your favorite? Here are the results in order of most voted for.

Geri (with 40% of the vote)

Victoria (with 20% of the vote)

Melanie C. (also with 20% of the vote)

Emma (with 15% of the vote)

Mel B. (also with 15% of the vote)

A lot of ties in this weeks. I have to agree that Geri is the cutest one. When she kisses the kid on the nose....yah pretty damn adorable. Emma's to me is the scariest, just for the fact that her pupil's are white. Thank you so much for voting again. I'm not sure if there is any point in having a poll this week as it is the Christmas and New Years holidays and people will probably be too busy (and I don't know personally how much posting I will get done since news will probably be slow), but just in case lets give one a whirl anyway. This week I want to know: Which Spice Kid do you think has the best name? You have 7 choices, have fun.


Russell Brand Radio Interview

Hey everyone, you can now listen to an exclusive interview that the Girls gave to Russell Brand on BBC Radio 2 which aired on his show today. The Girls continuously say that it is the best interview they have had since the reunion announcement and they sound like they are having a great time. You can listen to the entire interview online here.

As an added bonus, the Girls also allowed him to come to their shows on the 15th and 16th of December at the 02 Arena in London and let BBC Radio 2 record the two shows. So for those of you who want to give a listen to how the live show sounds, you can listen to the highlights collection which aired here.
Consider it an early Christmas gift for those of you who are seeing the show in the New Year and for those of you who couldn't get tickets. All the songs sound amazing. Hope you enjoy it.

Strictly Come Singing

The Spice Girls will fulfill their promise to appear on the UK celebrity dance competition show Strictly Come Dancing. They were supposed to appear on the show upon their first arrival back in Britain but due to Emma spraining her ankle on stage the day before they decided to cancel in order for her to rest before their first UK show. Now they will be appearing on tonight's finale of the show (which is more appropriate I think) much to Emma's delight who reportedly cannot wait to return to the "SCD" studio's where she came in third place with dance partner Darren Bennett on last years season of the show.

The Girls will perform their first Christmas # 1 single, 2 Become 1.

I'm sure Melanie B will be happy to see Dancing With The Stars judges Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli again, who are also judges on the program.

Victoria's Christmas Message

Yes all five of the Girls have already sent out a collective Holiday message, but Victoria has written her very own for the visitors of her official website. Read it below.

As the festive season is upon us, I want to wish everyone a very merry (and of course fashionable) Christmas and a Happy New Year. I would like to thank all of you for your amazing support during this extremely exciting time. My family and I wish you and yours a New Year of much health and happiness.


In other Victoria news, our posh one has been bragging about her sex life again. On top of the fact that she sleeps naked and she calls him "Golden Balls", when asked about the new Armani Underwear pics of David, Victoria said,

“I’m proud I still have a really good sex life with David. He is very much in proportion. He does have a huge one, though. He does. You can see it in the advert. It is all his. It is like a tractor exhaust pipe!”

Oh My! Merry Christmas Vicki, eh?


Nostalgic Spice: "Too Much" Music Video

Wow, it's taken me so long to add this video. I really should have done it after last weeks poll results but I kept forgetting that I wanted to do it. I also need to add the "Say You'll Be There" video because that was also a poll winner but we'll get to that soon.

First a bit about this video and song. As we all know this song was the single that they released to help promote the Spice World Movie and as such shows each of the Girls in a different movie genre scenario. Melanie B in a war/action setting, Emma in a poltergeist omage scenario, Melanie C in a Martial Arts arena, Geri as a glamazon classic film deity, and Victoria as a Catwoman-esque villainess planning on destroying the world.

The song was the second release from the "Spice World" album, their sixth consecutive # 1 single and second Christmas # 1. I've read that the video caused a bit of controversy because of a floating vibrator in the background of one of Emma's scenes. I never even noticed that until I read about it, it's at about the 2:32 mark.

Critics look for anything don't they?

Spice Kids Hit The Stage

Last nights concert at the 02 Arena in London featured a very special performance of the Girls 4th number 1 single "Mama" as 6 of the 7 Spice Kids joined their Mom's (and Aunt's) on stage for the song.

The only child missing from attendance was Geri's daughter Bluebell. The smaller kids (Cruz, Angel, and Beau) all wore green earmuffs to protect their ears from the roaring crowd, while the others minced about while the Girls and the Capital Children's Choir belted out the Spice classic.

Emma has stated her and Jade's excitement to celebrate their first Christmas with Beau next week.

"I can't wait to see his little face, he's still only very little obviously he's only 4 months so he's not gonna quite get it this year but it'll be nice to spend some time with him."

The Tour makes it's way to the Koln Arena in Germany tomorrow night and then it's off to Madrid for their show on the 23rd before they take a break for the holidays.


Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 7

The last clip contains a lot of behind the scenes rehearsals for the reunion tour and backstage hijinx culminating in the first show. Hope you all enjoyed the documentary.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 6

"Well, that's her own fault."

The Girls discuss the third album and Melanie C's reluctance to make it. As well as the ultimate end of the Group and we get a look at the first reactions of all five meeting up again on the day of the reunion announcement. The greatest moment of the entire show.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 5

Eating disorders, firing Simon and the truth about Geri's departure all within this one clip.

Isn't this a brilliant special? Loving it. Is it wrong that I think it's hilarious that Melanie C called Geri a "silly cow"?

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 4

"Don't worry, they're only coming to see your big hair and your big boobs anyway" lol.

The Girls become a household name with every kind of endorsement deal imaginable and perform their first ever concert in Istanbul.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 3

This clip covers meeting heads of state, Geri's nude modelling, the making of Spice World The Movie, and fighting within the group.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 2

The Girls discuss the Girl Power Philosophy, dominating the charts around the world, and Geri's first moments of bad publicity.

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Part 1

Alright you lot. The new documentary by the Girls called "Giving You Everything" airs tonight in Canada on CTV starting at 9:30pm, but the lucky fans in Australia have already seen the hour long special and have uploaded it to Youtube so I'm adding it now for those who can't wait a few more hours. The Girls talk about everything from the very beginning of their performance lives in college, their auditions for the original Girl Group, all the way to Geri leaving, splitting up for good and reuniting this year.

It's seems really honest and I'm so happy with it. Enjoy.


Melanie C Wants A Baby

Is Melanie C feeling broody? What with travelling around with the Girls and the 7 kids they have among them, Melanie has hinted that she would like to settle down in the next few years with her longtime boyfriend Tom Starr and have a baby of her own.

"I want to be a mum in the next few years. But it hasn’t been the right time yet. I am enjoying the other girls’ children. They are really lovely kids, from the little babies, to Phoenix and Brooklyn. And I can give them back at the end of the day. They are lovely and I’ll have me own one day."

Spending the past few years developing her solo career in Europe and running her own record label has taken up much of her time and her four friends believe that Melanie never really gets the full recognition she deserves. Though the other Girls have had their own amount of solo success in the music industry, none of them have toured as extensively as Melanie nor have they put their energies into promoting themselves as well as she has.

Victoria has said, "I look at Melanie C, how hard she works, how good her solo material is - and how she is treated. It is not a nice industry."

One of Melanie's reason's for doing this tour (aside from getting to enjoy time with the Girls again), is so after they give a proper farewell, people will stop associating her with the Spice name and recognize her more as a solo artist and appreciate her own music.

Geri added, "She has got that Chrissie Hynde thing going on."

I wonder what Melanie would call her child?

Poll Results # 6

This was clearly a no brainer lol. Hope you are all enjoying the Christmas Season (despite the weather) and I hope you have all got your shopping done. The results are in from this weeks poll, the question was which single from the "Spice World" album has the best music video to accompany it? You only had four choices to choose from in this poll, the results in order of most voted for are....

Too Much (with 52% of the vote)

Spice Up Your Life (with 31% of the vote)

Stop (with 21% of the vote)

Viva Forever (with 5% of the vote)

We all loved the movie and likewise for the video from it. Thanks so much for voting. To the one person who voted for Viva Forever, don't you fret, this weeks question is for you and the underappreciated video. This weeks question is "Which tinmation Spice Girl fairy from the Viva Forever video is your favorite?" I'm glad you're all enjoying the site. Happy voting.

Melanie B Blogs Of Sing-Along Songs

Here is the latest Spice Blog courtesy of Melanie B.

Alright you lot!

Wow, it's been a mental few days! Sorry this is late, I've been living it up in Las Vegas - haha.

We had a lot of fun in Vancouver and the US but its great to be back in England - even if it is bloody freezing!

Thanks to all of you that showed up to welcome us at Heathrow on Thursday after we flew home on Spice One, its so cool that we have a plane named in our honour!

Emma is doing well. She's been having treatment from David Beckham's doctor and has been resting since we arrived home.

We can't wait to get on stage at the 02. We've been looking forward to this show since we announced the dates in June... we are going to rock it!!

I'll be at Selfridges on Monday night (6pm) for a Christmas sing-along, so I'm sure I'll see some of you nutters down there.




That sounds like fun, I wanna sing carols with Mel.


Spice Interview: Scary To Nice Spice

The Girls discuss how they have changed individually and give a little Girl Power shout out to Britney in this interview with entertainment program Extra!

Spice Girls: Giving You Everything Sneak Peek

This video will probably not be available by the time anyone gets around to watching it but I'm required to try and post it. This is a sneak peek into the new Documentary made by the Girls, it's really just a combination of a few small clips.

I first heard that it was going to be airing on CTV December 17th in Canada, but now there are rumours that it has been postponed until the 18th or even the 30th. As soon as I find out the correct I will inform you.

Merry Christmas From The Spice Girls

The Girls have sent out this Holiday message to their fans who have registered on their official website.

Hello everyone,

We're in a festive mood as we all look forward to the holidays. As you know, we've been performing The Return Of The Spice Girls show in the USA and Canada over the last few weeks and the amazing response from our fans has been incredible. Thank you all so much for coming to see the show, and if you've got tickets to see us soon, we look forward to Spicing up your New Year.

After our current European dates, we will return to the USA and Canada for more shows in Boston, Montreal, Toronto, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia and Washington DC.

Even if you can't get to one of our gigs, you can buy our official merchandise at thespicegirls.com Online Store. It's the perfect way to give yourself a Christmas Spice treat.

We are all taking a well-earned break over Christmas and New Year to spend time with family and friends. And we would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your loved ones a really wonderful Christmas and the very best for 2008.


Emma, Geri, Mel B, Melanie C & Victoria


Isn't that lovely? I think I'll go listen to their version of Sleigh Ride or Melanie C and Emma's cover of Christmas Wrapping to get into the holiday mood.


London Arrival

With a blast of confetti in the air the Spice Girls arrived back home in London and opened the new Virgin Atlantic Terminal at Heathrow Airport with Sir Richard Branson. Welcomed by an overwhelming amount of applause by many of their fans, the Girls were delighted to be back home as they stepped off Spice One in colorful new threads.

The opening of the terminal was hosted by British TV Host Vernon Kaye who introduced the Girls as they walked of the plane and led them to an awaiting group of media persons.

"We were overwhelmed that so many people were there to welcome us to London, we can't wait to perform for our UK fans," the Girls said.

Emma also revealed that she was working with David Beckham's physiotherapist and has her fingers crossed that she will be better for their show on Saturday.

Backstage Pics

Here's just a few pictures of the girls backstage before their first show in Vancouver. Some together, some solo, some with the dancers. Enjoy.

Plane Name

That title kinda says it all. All five of the Girls showed up at LAX airport in LA (where else) last night to unveil the name and design for the Spice Jet provided to them by Virgin Atlantic Airlines. As previously posted the Girls held a competition for their fans to help them name the jet and they would allow one lucky fan to come meet them at the ceremony.

The name chosen by you (maybe not specifically) is SPICE ONE. Not exactly an original name but it does the trick. Each Girl has signed their name on the side of the plane and they all hope that everyone who travels on board this luxurious jet in the future has a wonderful flight.

Sir Richard Branson (who owns the Virgin empire) added,

"We are proud to be bringing the Spice Girls back in style for their home-coming tour, and back in time for Christmas, following their triumphant US shows."

The tour returns to the US and Canada in the New Year. Congratulations to fan and competition winner Diogo Yomane from Brazil who met the Girls at last nights ceremony. Lucky Bugger!
PS. I love the vintage pin-up figure emblazoned on the tail of the plane.

Baby Gets A Boo Boo

Eeeks! Emma Bunton has fallen and...she's up. During Tuesdays final show at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Emma fell and twisted her ankle. Ouch! She has explained to the official website...

"Last night I had a tumble on stage and unfortunately have sprained my ankle, so I am hobbling around on crutches!"

"I'm sure to make a speedy recovery and see you all at The 02."

It's a good thing she has a couple of days off before the shows in London (which start on Saturday), I wonder how and when in the show she fell? From what I'm reading it must have been backstage because nobody seemed to have noticed anything until she appeared yesterday at the Spice Plane unveiling sporting her crutches.

Although all of the Girls have promised to perform Saturday as planned (with or without crutches), they have decided to cancel their scheduled performance of 2 Become 1 on UK dance series Strictly Come Dancing (the British version of Dancing With The Stars in which Emma was a contestant last year) to give Emma a bit more resting time before resuming with the tour.

Get well soon Emma!


Victoria Beckham On Larry King Live: Part 3

Editor-In-Cheif of Elle Magazine Robbie Meyers joins Victoria and Larry as they discuss the Elle photoshoot, Vicki's DVB fashion line, and when she styled Jack Nicholson for Parade Magazine.

Victoria Beckham On Larry King Live: Part 2

"I love your braces."

In the second half Victoria speaks about the tabloids, Larry being a fashion icon in his own right, her security team and her fashion career.

Victoria Beckham On Larry King Live: Part 1

There are three parts to this interview. This is the first where Vicki clears up the rumours of her being pregnant and answers a load of questions we've already heard her answer.

Isn't that weird when all interviewer's and journalists always ask the same old questions? Must be so frustrating to repeat yourself that often.


Becks In Briefs

This post has nothing to do with any of the Girls, but it does contain a spousal component and a half naked man, and let's face it do I really need any more justification than that? I figure most visitors to this site are either gay (or questioning) men and/or straight women, so I feel it will be fully appreciated.

David "Golden Balls" Beckham is the new poster boy (oh boy) for the Emporio Armani underwear collection. This is the first of many ads that will start running in fashion magazines starting January 2008. He's a Spice Boy so it fits into the workings of the page. The photographs were shot in LA last month by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Hope the straight guys can enjoy this as much as the rest of us. You get to check out the Girls all the time though. Eeeks, I've deluded myself into thinking that millions of people visit this page, isn't that sad? I love the people that do read it though. Thanks Muchly.


Victoria On Larry King

Hey everyone, it's been a bit slow in the Spice News arena the past couple of days. I could add a bunch of reviews from the shows they've done so far but they all pretty much say the same thing. They're putting on an amazing show and we all know that already. I'll start adding a few music videos and nostalgic interview clips while we're in a bit of a lull.

I did just come across this fun little fact though. The lovely Miss Victoria Beckham will be appearing on Larry King Live tonight on CNN. The programs website states that she will be discussing David, her fashion book, her fashion line "DVB", and of course The Return Of The Spice Girls Tour. Check local listings for show times, for those of you in the Toronto area it airs at 9pm. The Girls are currently in Las Vegas wowing the packs of sinners and gamblers until Tuesday. After that they fly back home to London for their first of 17 shows in the UK.
By the way, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have been at about 3 of the Spice Girls shows (including last nights first Vegas show), so I'm feeling a little less like a loser for wanting to see them a third time in Toronto.


Poll Results # 5

Yay! The results are in for this weeks poll. Usually I would have done this last night when the poll closed but I was performing last night. Good times. So anyhow, the question was Which Action Star Name From The Say You'll Be There Video Is Your Favorite? The results in order of most voted for were....

1) Trixie Firecracker (Geri) (with 50% of the vote....Wow)

2) Midnight Miss Suki (Victoria) (with 27% of the vote)

3) Katrina Highkick (Melanie C.) (with 11% of the vote)

4) Kung Fu Candy (Emma) (with 5% of the vote)

5) Blazin' Bad Zula (Mel B.) (also with 5% of the vote)

I'll admit I gave a pity vote to Mel B. because no one seemed to be voting for her lol, so technically she didn't even make it onto the scoreboard. Poor Thing. But everyone seems to love Trixie and I can't think of why not. As I've read it, Geri was the one to come up with these names so isn't it appropriate that she should have the best one?

Well done folks! This week I want to continue with the pattern of questioning from week 4 and ask you Which single from the "Spice World" album do you think has the best music video to accompany it? Only four choices to choose from this week. Vote away everyone.


Spice Girls Interview Backstage In LA

Before their first concert in LA the Spice Girls indulged in a few pre-show interviews. This one, with entertainment news program "Extra" had Victoria giving some womanly advice to interviewer Terri Seymour (whom I love)about her boyfriend Simon Cowell, Emma claiming that she has the quickest costume change and Melanie C laughing that adorable chipmunk-esque laugh.

Stop: Live @ Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Here is the Spice Girls performance from the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. Although Headlines was cut, this is one fine performance and it almost makes up for that stupid decision (mind you I said almost). With a big group hug at the end their return was cemented.

I love that the Victoria's Secret Angels are all dancing around backstage. I guess it's true....even models have feelings. ; )


Solo Spice: Melanie C - I Turn To You Live @ The Mint

"This really is the last one. I've got a show tomorrow."

Here is a live clip of Melanie singing I Turn To You during her solo gig last night.

Melanie C @ The Mint

Last Night Melanie C played an acoustic gig at LA club The Mint to a crowd of 200 or so hyped up fans. The show which consisted of 11 songs from her fantastic solo career was also seen by a few Spicy friends. Victoria and Melanie B turned up at the show with their husbands David and Stephan to show their support and cheer along with the rest of the crowd, as well as Melanie's longtime beau Thomas Starr.

The songs Melanie sang were,

Beautiful Intentions
What If I Stay
Better Alone
Here & Now
Northern Star
Next Best Superstar
First Day Of My Life
When You're Gone
This Time
I Turn To You

There is no official word yet on Melanie's plans for other solo gigs during the Spice Tour but keep your eyes and ears peeled because if she does announce any they will probably be announced last minute. Melanie seems keen on re-establishing her solo career in North America and this tour is certainly helping her to raise money to put toward her record label "Red Girl Records", which she hopes to start adding new artists to when the tour is over.


Melanie C Keeps In Touch

The Girls have a day off from the Spice Tour tonight but the ever eager Melanie C has chosen to use her day productively, writing a message to her fans on her official website about her solo acoustic gig tonight at The Mint in LA.

"Hiya! Melanie here.

Sorry for my absence of late, been a tad busy with my old mates the Spice Girls! The tour is going great - we're all enjoying it so much.

We're back in LA now and, as you probably already know, being crazy fools, me, Greg, Paul and Nick have decided to do a little acoustic set on our day off tonight. We're going to be playing at a lovely little club called The Mint. I can't wait, it's going to be loads of fun and maybe I'll get a chance to play some other cities along the way.

Hope to see you all soon

Love Melanie x"

Keep it up Mel!

Something Kinda Funny

After what was apparently a very successful (if not strange) contest last week to win a pair of Melanie B's false eyelashes that she wore on Dancing With The Stars, the official website is now holding a contest for one of the fans to win a pair of Melanie C's socks that she wore backstage last night before their first gig at the Staples Centre in LA.

All you have to do to enter this one, is send an email with your name, age and address to competitions@thespicegirls.com with the answer to this question.

What is the name of the solo hit that Melanie C performs in the Return Of The Spice Girls show?

I guess they're going to continue with these weird prize giveaways. I hope to God they wash those socks.

PS. to the person who won the eyelashes....Melanie was suffering from some sort of eye infection during the run of DWTS so......just be careful.

New Tour Dates Confirmed

The information in my previous post from yesterday about the new tour dates has been confirmed by the official website. Good luck getting tickets, I think I may have to get a ticket for the third Toronto show. Is that nuts to see them three times? I saw Madonna three times on her Re-Invention Tour since it was the first time I had managed to see her in concert, so I think since this is the last time they are performing together my actions will be justified. All of the shows listed go on sale this Saturday @ 10 am.


Victoria On Elle

Victoria Beckham is the cover girl for the January issue of Elle Magazine. The pictures were taken back in October during Vicki's visit to Paris. In the interview she discusses sex with Becks, childhood torments, her kids and the reunion with her four best mates.

My favorite quote would have to be, (when asked what she wears to bed)

“I sleep naked. You don’t sleep with David Beckham. (giggles) I’m going to be naked if I’m getting in bed with him every night.”

Damn right!

This Posh issue of Elle hits news stands next Tuesday (December 11th).

New Tour Dates

The Spice Girls have confirmed two new tour stops and there are many a rumour about a few others that may hopefully be added.

Let's discuss the confirmed dates first. The following dates have not been added to the official website, but they have been confirmed and have a placement on the official websites of the venues they will be played at. These dates are...

February 16th, 2008 @ Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit, Michigan.

February 18th, 2008 @ Madison Square Garden in New York City, NY.

Why they didn't plan concerts at Madison Square Garden to begin with is a mystery to me, but I guess it's nice that they've chosen to go to Long Island or Paramus or where ever the hell they're going as well. Both of these shows go on sale on Saturday.

Now the rumoured dates (some of which I'm personally excited about) are...

January 31st, 2008 @ Bell Centre in Montreal

February 19th, 2008 @ Wachovia Centre in Philadelphia

February 21st, 2008 @ Verizon Centre in Washington

February 25th, 2008 @ Air Canada Centre in Toronto, On. (could this be true?)

February 29th, 2008 @ Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City

If they're adding another date to Toronto, I will die. Cross your fingers everyone.

Emma Blogs About Mama Mix Up

After the Girls show in San Jose last night (and probably around the same time I was yelling at my TV wondering where the hell Headlines was) Emma blogged from the Spice Jet while snuggling up with some red wine.

Hi everyone,

I am sitting on the plane next to Mel B, enjoying a glass of red wine having just done our show in San Jose to an amazing crowd. I felt a little less nervous tonight than I did in Vancouver and I really let loose and had lots of fun.

With each show I'm getting more confident singing live but during Mama I got so carried away looking at the video playing behind us of all the mothers and babies that I forgot some of the lyrics!

Mel B also has a thing for pinching our bottoms... which makes us all giggle!

I know you don't get to see what's going on underneath the stage but our quick changes are mad, although we all help each other out.

We're truly having the best time of our lives and we feel so lucky to get the chance to do it again. We know some people have traveled far and wide to see us and we can't thank you enough. So, we'll make sure you have the best night.

See you at the next show!

Lots of love,

Emma xx

Ps Beau's favourite song is Wannabe.

Their next show is tonight at The Staples Centre in LA. Break A Leg!


Headlines Is A Real Secret

I feel duped. After hearing all the news and seeing all the pictures of the the Girls performing Headlines (Friendship Never Ends) at the Victoria's Secret Fashion show, the performance was not apart of tonight's television broadcast. What the hell is that? We got two doses of Seal but we only got to see the Girls 1940's military inspired rendition of Stop? Does that seem justified?

As spectacular as the performance was, I was looking forward to seeing them in their gowns for Headlines. It better leak onto youtube otherwise we're S.O.L. I'm quite disappointed lol.

Merchandise Craze

Be sure to have your money ready and get to the venue early if you are attending a show on the tour. At Sunday's premiere show in Vancouver the merchandise was reportedly flying off the shelves with some of the items selling out completely.

An employee at the General Motors Arena told the official website that they had not seen anything like it, the crowd was consistently 20 people deep with fans jumping up and down screaming when they had their purchases in hand.

Many fans have been waiting for this moment since the Spice Girls hit the scene in 96 so you may have to bring your "last minute Christmas shopping" attitude if you want to get what you really really want.
