Um, holy shizz, y’all. Are we on the brink of another Spice Girls reunion? According to new REPORTS (that I must remind you are NOT confirmed and are by NO MEANS OFFICIAL), there is talk of the Spice Girls getting back together for the London 2012 Olympic Games later this year. Now, I’ve read enough Spice Girls reunion rumors over the years to know that for the most part, that kind of talk is generated by overzealous fans who are trying to WILL things into existence. BUT, the London Olympic Games are a big deal … and the Spice Girls being a beloved British pop act … well … I suppose it’s feasible, right? Click below to read the REPORT that is going around and see what you think.
Ever since Baby, Sporty, Scary and Posh split to concentrate on their solo projects back in 2000 there have been rumours of a reunion on the cards and even their actual worldwide reunion tour in 2007 didn’t put a stop to those rumours but one that just won’t go away says that the Spice Girls are to give a nostalgic performance at the London Olympics this year. The five girls are currently in contact as they are working on putting together a West End musical featuring the band’s iconic tunes and the girls have been chatting about another Spice performance. Speaking to Star magazine, Mel B said: “I would never say never. I think it’s possible. I’d love it if we got back together and got to go on tour.” She added: “We’re doing a musical about the Spice Girls right now, so we’re in contact quite a bit. But I can’t really tell you much about it.” On each other’s careers and the girls working with each other, Mel said: “We’re very supportive of anything each other does. Anything that any of us does – we’re very supportive. That’s that.” Speaking to the Daily Mirror last year, Geri said: “Singing at the games is a great idea and would be an amazing opportunity – and it’s a sign the Brits are back. This is our time. Everything is circular and now there’s a British pop revival.” She added: “It needs to put itself back on the map on a world stage. This is our opportunity to show that British music, which has led and dominated the world, should do, always.”
OK … so the actual Spice Girls are talking about working together again so … this rumor might have some teeth. I’m intrigued by this notion of a Spice Girls musical. As much as I’d love to see a musical about the Spice Girls or that utilizes Spice Girls music, the whole notion SMELLS of a terrible trainwreck … I LOVE IT :) As for a possible reunion at the Olympics, it could happen. I know I’d LOVE for the Girls to get back together … how about you? Wouldn’t that be the best thing to ever happen in the course of human History ever?
