We knew all these ’90s fashion trends came back for a reason. It’s preparing us for the Spice Girls 2018 reunion. There’s just one catch: They won’t be complete.
A source told The Sun that the five original members—Emma Bunton, Geri Haliwell, Mel C., Mel B., and Victoria Beckham—have agreed to record a new album and release a TV special next year. “The five of them have been locked in secret talks since the summer, and finally they are all on-board for a 2018 reunion.”
However, days after the announcement, Victoria (aka Posh Spice) confirmed to Daily Mail Online that she’s not rejoining the group. “Victoria has loved her time with the Spice Girls but her future focus is firmly her family and fashion brand,” her rep said. “The constant stories about Victoria taking part in alleged Spice Girls activity is nothing more than tabloid nonsense.”
The Sun previously reported that the other Spice Girls were able to convince Victoria, despite being “the coup of everyone.” Meanwhile, TMZ said that Victoria allegedly wasn’t involved in any talks regarding the reunion.
The last time we saw all five Spice Girls on stage was during the 2012 London Olympics closing ceremony. They performed their hits “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life.”
In 2016, Emma, Mel B., and Geri got together to celebrate their 20th anniversary. “Wannabe” was also used in The Global Goals’ campaign to promote girls and women’s righs.
Complete or not, the reunion is still a go and we’re sure a lot of you are pretty stoked about it. Let’s just pray that Victoria changes her mind at the last minute.
