Spice Girls Announcement Today

Thu Jun 28, 2007 4:57 pm

The Spice Girls are widely expected to announce they are reforming at a press conference in London today. It will be the first official public appearance by all five members since Geri Halliwell quit in May 1998.

Is it what we really really want? Mel C, better known as Sporty Spice, told the BBC that any reunion would be for "a very short space of time... a final goodbye".

Just long enough to make a huge wad of cash then?

My thoughts exactly!

Maybe I am getting old, but who wants to see a bunch of young ladies, probably now past their prime, and Talentless Spice (aka Mrs Beckham) mime their way through some more performances. Mind you, as far as I am concerned most of today's hit songs sound like pre-recorded phone announcements.

AFter the Take That reunion, I guess these thought there is a market for them too. Well as long as they produce different more mature music, why not. I was allergic to Take That, but it seems their new music is as if from a completely different band.

Is that a new picture of them? I have seen pictures of each individually, and they have changed drastically, amazing how they can patch them up to look like they did so easily! Or is that an old picture?

Oh, the Spice Girls were always just a bit of fun, and they knew it/know it. I mean, did anyone ever claim they had much talent? They had a couple of fun songs written for them among the tripe, and the spice movie was funny and clever because it didn't take itself too seriously. I can think of many groups that are much lamer, yet currently quite trendy. Plus, I always found Scary very sexy--even if Sporty aparently had to explain to her who Gordon Brown was at their press conference yesterday.

Quoting Banco (Reply 8):

But that's exactly the point. Imagine what a sore disappointment it would have been if those greats had reuinted: besides the "sellout" accusations that would automatically have followed, they would have been shadows of their former selves--and they knew it. The very best groups are usually the ones who perceive/recognize when what they have stops working as well, for whatever reason, and choose to leave their admirers wanting more, rather than wishing they hadn't recorded their latest album. The Spice Girls, on the other hand, have almost nothing to lose.

Was that Black Spice (or whatever she is called) at that conference? Saw snapshots on CNN, she changed so much, what happened to the body and the funky hair? These two constitued 99% of who she was in the spice girls (the remaining 1% being her voice).

Oh come on guys, SPICE UP YOUR LIFE! ! ! !  Cool

Even though I am music snob, I can turn it off and enjoy the Spice Girls as a guilty pleasure. Think about it. They are a fun group. They are pretty, like to dance lyrics are positive and aren't angry man-hating b!tche$ like the girl groups from here.
When they were around, British Airways was doing those hideous world tails on there aircraft. I was hoping that BA would put the different Spice Girls on there tails. That would have been cool to see Baby Spice on the tail of a 747-200.  Smile

GOOD LORD!! Is that REALLY them???!!!??? They sure don't look like they did! Geri needs a stylist. Victoria needs a hair stylist and needs to release the pressure in her chestal area. What did Dorothy say on Golden Girls about Blanche's falsies once....? My back tires have less pressure!

I must admit I was a Spice fan. They were fun, they were silly, and they enjoyed it. I think we all did to some degree. I also liked their last album. The one with "Holler." I don't have my full CD collection, so I couldn't tell you the name of it. If they come out sounding like that, I would be on board.

Does this mean there is hope of an NSYNC or BSB reunion? Mmmmmm... JC and Howie.....

All of the above.
However, I haven't heard her say a thing about aviation. If she knows nothing, at least that puts her in the same league of about 25% of the members here.

That's not true.
There was once a time when artist with musical integrity were signed to major record labels and looks were not important. The people bought it because it was good music. Many of the legends from the past that we name streets, parks and restaurants after were never rich. The Spice Girls is are a product, an image, an act that just so happened to put out records.
You think artist such as Carole King, The Carpenters and Janis Joplin were signed because of there looks?
Talent is a thing of the past in terms of mass produced record label endorsed acts.
