It seems like such a shame that moderators have to waste so much time and energy. Perhaps there can be a non-moderated black hole thread where people can just vent and if people want to respond to other's venting, they can do so at their own peril.


Sort of like "oh yeah?? You wanna take this outside?? Well, all right! See you in that thread then!"

Actually not a bad idea! :D


I love it... I really enjoy to come here once in a while and have a little fight after a long day at work, I find it so relaxing,
and I laugh so much reading all the comments of people complaining about the fighting. You can't just take away the fun.

Black hole! Black hole! Black hole! :devil:

Maybe a temporally ban?

Apparently the guy speaking is Wiliam Rutten who photographed the group.

Does anyone know what he is saying? Thank you :)
he took those pictures, some of them in his bathroom. Before the shoot the management send him a fax with things that they wanted to have there. Like lots of food etc. A friend of him made sure that all those things where there. So when they came to the fotoshoot they where surprised that all those things where there, because that where the things they wantend at concerts. But because of that the shoot went very well. 2 weeks after this shoot they because really famous in america and he made lots of money with those pictures. Sorry my english sucks haha. But its a little bit what he's saying in this video.

understood everything. thank you Suzanne!!!

Even though it's nothing new, hearing Victoria say it (again) still feels like a small punch to the gut. It's sad just cause I hate to imagine that it's truly over forever. I'm thankful I got to see TROTSG and obviously the Olympics was just... flawless. Maybe they'll never tour or perform again but at the same time, maybe if something like the caliber of the Olympics came up again, the 5 of them would do a one off performance like that. Or maybe the five of them will get together for a sit down special or something, like an interview and a look back.

To be honest, as I listen to Victoria, I just can't see her up there dancing and singing Wannabe of Spice Up Your Life. She doesn't have that "vibe" anymore so I dunno, I guess I get it. I truly feel bad for fans that were supposed to get the reunion tour and they didn't go. If I hadn't seen them live as a five piece, I'd be gutted too. I understand the frustration.

I don't know where people get the idea that something was to happen after the end of the reunion tour? They never said they were going to do much, not even the musical was a project all of them participated in. It was mainly Geri, Emma and Melanie C.

We thought they would never reunite prior to the announcement of the reunion tour because Melanie C kept insisting up until the week before the announcement that she was not interested in a reunion. So who knows what's going to happen.

Victoria saying she won't participate is just natural. I give her credit for confirming what has been written for years.

They did so much in they very little time they have been active, I don't understand why we demand more. The group is part of pop history, we can't ask more than that.

But in here all people do is complain. As if they owe us something. No. We chose to buy their music. We chose to buy their merchandise. They never released it on the premise that they would keep releasing stuff for the rest of our lives! The mentality is completely ridiculous, like a spoiled little child.

If they never had existed you'd be happily ignorant because you wouldn't know what you missed. Now you are unhappy because you had it and you demand more. You never deserved it to begin with.

Furthermore, I fully support Jay and closing this topic/banning or warning people. We know the rules. Unfortunately Jay's the only one from the admin to upkeep it, so people in here have been allowed to run freely and think that whatever they say and however they behave is justified because "that's the way they are"- it's bullshit. Behave. And use common sense. Otherwise go troll somewhere else.

Surely rubbish she really would have no power in suing them as she didn't have any solo ownership over any of the catalogue or even the Spice Girls name. I doubt she'd do that anyway.

I do think she doesn't support the idea of GEM though.

Victoria was my second favourite back in the day (for me now there's no reason to make a chart of the girls), I like her and she can do whatever she wants but what makes me sad is that after 2010 she doesn't look spontaneous when she is in public and on social media, I mean I know that people changes, she has another job but now she seems totally another person in public (I can't judge how she acts in her private life). Donatella Versace and Dolce & Gabbana have the same job but they aren't so controlled when they are talking. I totally support her decision to leave the Spice Girls in the past even if it makes sad, but I would be happier if she looks real more often when she talks about them or in general. In that meeting of some years ago at a school of fashion designers I've found her very spontaneous, like the old Victoria. At the today show when she was asked about the Spice Girls she started saying "at..." and then she firmly changed words and said there will never be a reunion (same things happened when she was at Ellen's show talking about having a number 1). She talks about them in a cold way, controlling the words. Imagine if she says the same things but saying something more heartfelt, for example in the same way that Mel C talked about her singing with Victoria at New Year's Eve. Mel C looked very emotional about it. I hope you get what I mean.

That would have been great because it gives a hope for the future :grin: but I meant that whatever she was saying spontaneously (even if it was "at all, I will never do it again as long as I live for God's sake" :grin: ) I felt that she stopped herself and used more specific words. :p

I think what we have to remember too is that while yes, they were global icons and conquered the world as Spice Girls, it was a very short period of time. 1996 to 1998 (Globally, I don't count Forever, sorry.) Victoria has been a successful fashion designer longer than she was a successful Spice Girl.

Heck, Geri, Melanie C. and Emma have released the same or more solo albums than they did as Spice Girls.

Mel B. has been a successful TV Personality longer than she was a Spice Girl.

Yeah, these successes don't elevate to the level of success they had when they were a band but in all reality... it was a very small period of time. Can we really expect these women to relive two years of their lives over and over and over?

In the other interview last week... you hear her whisper about the spice girls... that was very nice. When the camera goes on she rolls right into her colder designer shtick. I bet she is still the same... but the five piece spice girls seems definately over.

Let's take some things into consideration

(Even if some fans will like them to reunite EVEN when they're dead) It's not like we're all crazy daydreaming.

Most "reunion"-talk comes because the girls themselves tease us! (Yes, they know there's demand cause we long for it)... but they keep on teasing us, never give us a transparent,, truthful answer.

Dunno if VB likes the idea, will plan on sueing or whatever, but don't think so.

I'm pretty much over the idea of a five-piece reunion. To be fair, I think the other four could do a reunion invoking Satan to the beat of Wannabe and Victoria wouldn't care. She's a designer now, unfortunately (for us).

Thank God there is an official confirmation that GEM is over. Thank God they're all coming to their senses.
They've moved on, and we should too :)

This is no news for us but it is a confirmation.
By the way, they mistake MelB and Mel C at the end of the text.

From the article:
Mel B who spends most of her time serving as a judge on “America’s Got Talent,” showed up in London on Thursday to sing Spice Girls hit “Wannabe” during a performance of the hit musical “School of Rock. Just last month, she went on an Australian TV assuring reunion hopefuls, “I’m trying, everyone, I’m trying.”


I'd prefer to hear confirmation directly from one of the GEM girls that nothing's happening as this article cites "sources" and then mixes up Mel B with Melanie C which to me undermines its credibility and basic fact checking.

I also think that given that Geri gave birth less than 2 months ago, GEM can be allowed a little slack. I do think they should make a statement just to put things to rest either way. Truthfully, I'm not expecting anything, but it's telling that two members who have nothing to do with a three piece reunion have weighed in more than the participating members.

At least we got Song For Her even if it wasn't the finalised version.

Still one of the best songs they've put out since 1998 for me.

I'm sure Geri has realised doing it as a 3 piece would be very hard work, they would have to put in a lot of effort to convince people about it. I'm sure if Mel C hopped on board things would change.
