Mel B Talks Spice Girls Anniversary, Denies Victoria’s Mic Was Ever Off
The Spice Girls continue to tease us with the prospects of a proper 20th anniversary reunion. From some members visiting studios and taking selfies together ("too much of something is bad enough") to others — Mel C, where are you? — not acknowledging the anniversary at all ("too much of nothing is just as tough"), our hearts can't handle much more. Yet, the emotional torture isn't over yet, with Mel B now rekindling the burning flames of our hope!
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight while making a special appearance at the Rootfop Cinema Club screening of Spice World in Los Angeles on June 1, Scary Spice confirmed that the ladies would definitely do "something" to celebrate two decades of bubblegum Brit-pop bliss.
"It's an ongoing thing we keep talking about, and it is our 20th anniversary, so we're going to do something," she teased. "We're just trying to figure that out right now. There will be something happening!"
But those rumors of a joint tour with the Backstreet Boys? Mel B says you can stop right now, thank you very much: "We want the stage to ourselves if we're going to do it! But I love the Backstreet Boys. They're great."
However, the possibility of a reunion wasn't the only thing Mel B dished on. When the fierce, leopard print-loving Spice was asked about Victoria Beckham's May 5 admission that her microphone was turned off during Spice Girls performances, she flat-out denied the claim.
"She wishes it was turned off!" she laughed. "We sung live, and we wrote and recorded all our music together live and we performed it live. No, it wasn't turned down. Not that I know of. Maybe she secretly asked for that — I don't know about that."
