THE Spice Girls have announced that they have not even asked Victoria Beckham to join their reunion tour.
Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm told Jonathan Ross in his chat show that they knew that the fashion designer did not want to visit her popstar days again, so she did not see any point in talking to her about it.
Mel C revealed, "Do you know what's actually funny … I've seen Victoria recently and obviously we all got in touch, she's still part of the Spice Girls, she really supports us and we really support her. But she raised the point that she was never really asked. We just suspected. "
Geri added, "I talked to her two days before the announcement, and she said for years that she just did not want to do it anymore, so we knew that."
"She just did not want to do it … She was busy with her fashion and moved on. The philosophy of us is that we are a band, on and off the stage and we care about each other, we support each other and we support them, and they have been a big part of our lives and we take care of them, so that's all Well . "
But the girls admitted that Victoria did not feel like playing anymore, so they did not want to force them to join them.
Geri revealed, "No. [she didn’t] and you do not want someone to do something they do not want to do. "
Emma added, "We realized that she did not have that much fun some time ago."
Mel B was also asked about her Halloween costume, in which she disguised herself as Victoria with a sign saying "No, I'm not going on tour."
She explained, "I have only a Nordic sense of humor and it's very funny and I really enjoyed being Victoria for the night."
And the girls announced that, despite everything, Victoria had given them the seal of approval for the reunion for the tour and that the door is still open to meet again for one or two meetings.
Mel B said, "I'm always hopeful. I love the spice girls, they are my girls, and I would not love to be all five together, so I always have it out there, but I'm also happy with four. "
The girls also tried their best to keep their comeback a secret, but Mel B insisted on telling everyone on TV while the other girls used code in the news.
Mel C said, "In my house, we had a code for Spice Girls because I was so paranoid. Because I am a good girl and do what I was told, and so I kept the secret. My little girl said, "Mom, why do not you call it cucumber?" So every time I talked about Spice Girls, I talked about cucumber. And then at the other end of the spectrum, Melanie [B] I just went on national television and said we would do it. "
But they did not turn it against Mel after their troubled years. She said: "They felt sorry for me because I went through a lot, they felt sorry for me, they were like," Let's not pass her by. "
Geri added, "The genius of us is that it's like a family. We've been together for over 20 years and have our ups and downs like normal families, and sometimes we disagree, but the best part is a few nights in our kitchen, we all came together and just had one really big group hug , a little tear, a scream, it took a long time, we wanted this to happen.
"I have to say that Melanie B and Emma tried to achieve that in 2012. For different reasons they are all in different places in their lives and finally the stars are in tune with each other and we went to Mel [C]& # 39; s house and she went, "Yes, I'm ready" and we said, "Great, let's do it."
And Mel C admitted that she dragged her feet for the comeback and admitted, "I said there were times when it did not feel right and I think after the Olympics [in 2012]Because being a spice girl was such a highlight, I was afraid that we would not be able to do that and spend time with the girls again. I just thought, "You know, I really want to do it. & # 39;
"We have great fans, really incredible fans who have consistently supported us, not just as Spice Girls, but in all of our individual ventures, and now we have a new generation [of fans], our own children … "
Emma added, "Our own kids are so excited … I think our kids will absolutely love it. My guys pick up their microphones and sing along to Spice Girls songs. "
But while they've been together for 20 years, they're still the same carefree pop stars they've always been with Mel B. Geri is still walking naked through her dressing rooms.
And they confirmed that there are no plans to release new music, even though Mel B joked about it and she was very honest about the millions they will be earning, which will help her with her recent divorce lawyer's bills.
Geri added: "Since the beginning of our journey 20 years ago, we have always used what we believe and love. When you make money, and this is a privilege, that's a by-product of what you do. We do it wholeheartedly, we can honestly say for each other because it's a bit of fun, but also for the fans. We were asked so many times. "
Mel explained that she feels well after the turbulent year. She said, "Oh yes, I have my girls, I'm fine. I feel very loved and supportive, and I feel very happy to be back in touch the way I always wanted, because I could not stay in my ex-marriage for a long time. Thank you, ladies! "
