Victoria Beckham is weighing in on the upcoming Spice Girls reunion, but her comments may disappoint some of the group’s die-hard fans.
Though Posh Spice has politely declined to join Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Geri Halliwell on their mini-reunion, her decision reflected the difficult lessons she first learned from the group’s international success.
“I think I learnt a lot from the Spice Girls, most importantly how you can have everything one minute and then lose it the next,” the singer-turned-designer told the Sunday Times Style section. “I’ve been given a second chance, so I’m not going to lose it again.”
Beckham, who now heads her critically-acclaimed, eponymous fashion label, also told the newspaper that she hopes the newly-formed group — which now goes by GEM (Geri, Emma and Mel)— will refrain from singing original Spice Girls songs. “What we did in the Spice Girls was so special,” she continued. “If they sang Spice Girls songs I think I might be a bit sad.”
Despite Beckham’s head-scratching comments, she insisted on sending well wishes their way, saying, “of course, as a new group, I do [wish them luck…I [just] think they should sing their own material.”
