How much did their imperfections really play into their success?

Over the years, I've read a ton of articles crediting the girls' success to the fact they weren't all great singers and dancers...making them relatable to the people buying their music. It's a pretty common media perspective, but does it ring true? I'm not so sure. For one, the girls' biggest succes...

Re: Wembley conference speculation

In Geri's If Only, she talks about how the Spice Girls team were making plans to announce her September departure. They wanted to be in control of the announcement, so the news didn't end up leaking to the media. Honestly, the Wembley Stadium announcement would have been an opportune time to bring i...

Re: Why Were they unhappy with Spice Up Your Life video?

I actually think the vibe of the video fits the song to a T. Spice Up Your Life always sounded a bit dark to me. Dark...and epic. The video captures it. I also think they needed that video at that moment. The Spice World trailers were showing them at their lightest and brightest. They needed a contr...

Re: VIVA FOREVER ☆ Discussion Thread (4th Single from 'Spiceworld')

I'm of two minds about this. On the one hand, the song's the crown jewel of the Spice catalogue. It just deserves to be released because it's Viva Forever. In a perfect world, it would've leant the group more credibility in the eyes of music critics. It just towered over everything other pop groups ...

Re: Westlife Vs Spice Girls

Hearing about Westlife's string of number ones and their sales (50 million?!) is truly bizarre to me.

Re: Lady Gaga

I like it. It's a nice song. I think her singles are typically more grandiose than what's on the radio...whereas this one's more in line with current pop. Not that that's a bad thing. Not every song needs to be one that shakes the rafters. I am a little surprised she didn't try another Joanne song.....

I've always figured the battle was something brewed up by Louis Walsh...who managed Westlife. It's obvious he's always had a major chip on his shoulder regarding the girls. I don't KNOW the reason he's been so incessantly rude to them...but I have a guess... Walsh's acts were always very carefully g...

Re: Did they form in 1993 or 1994?

By the summer, the group Touch was formed, with the four of them and a girl named Michelle. She subsequently left because of an illness in her family and because she wanted to go to college. After more auditions, Emma – whom Victoria knew – was brought in. They all lived together in a house in Maid...

I remember one magazine interview (it may have been Rolling Stone?) called them out on this in person. The interviewer told them they formed in 1994, not 1993...and said they all just sat there with big grins. So. Apparently, they were quite in on the scheme and didn't especially care if anyone figu...

Re: Why was Emma offended by Virgin's offer to record a demo for second album?

Where Virgin truly failed was allowing the insane release schedule the girls wanted. The girls were young...and perhaps weren't the most management-minded. Certainly Virgin could've pumped the breaks on the rapid-fire album releases. I've never liked the assessment that A Girl Like Me was a bit of a...

Her TV appearances are usually pretty great. But. Geez, Mel. Does she really think they recorded both Spice and Spiceworld before they signed with Simon? Her constant claiming they weren't placed together as a group is odd too. Her responses basically play out like..."We weren't placed together...
