Funny, normally it’s the stars who try and shoot down rumors, not start them.
Leave it to erstwhile Scary Spice Mel B to veer from the norm, as she has once again fueled the fire of reports of an impending reunion of her girl-powered posse.
A Diamond Jubilee may be the Spice Girls‘ best friend, after all. So what’d she say this time?
“Will be back in uk next month to see my spice girls, can’t wait, missed them all sooooooo much!!!!! girlpower all the way babay!!!” she tweeted last night.
Given the ferocity of the reformation rumors that made the rounds last month, she had to know that her tweet would cause a new wave of excitement among fans—but she failed to elaborate on why exactly she may be meeting up with Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm.
Though the speculation, which Melanie Brown seems only too happy to add to, is that rehearsals may be in order.
Initial theories seemed to peg the girls’ reunion on the London Olympics this summer (David Beckham is even an ambassador for the event), but Mel B hinted that they may be getting into those hot pants and Union Jack dresses even sooner.
“Fingers crossed, I’m always down for a Spice Girls reunion,” she told Australia’s Sunrise in an interview last month. “For me to get my Scary hair on and my big platforms…anytime day or night, I’m a Spice Girl through and through.”
When questioned on the Olympic rumor, Brown turned the tables.
“Well, we do have the queen’s Diamond Jubilee coming up…Ooh, did I really say that?”
Judging by the unstoppable speculation about the Spice Girls plans since? Yes, Mel B, yes, you did. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
