mel c and coccaine

Postby CJSNNX » 01 Oct 2004, 06:30

erm i just read the rolling stones interview and it mentioned something about a rumor that mel binged and did coccaine. ive never heard of this before, was there any truth to it? here is the bit form the article

In December, Mel C was faced with the headline:

SPICE GIRL'S COCAINE SHAME: ALL NIGHT BINGES SHOCK FOR YOUNG FANS

...which claimed for her a past of various debaucheries.

"I don't think anybody took any notice of it, did they?" she says, apparently unconcerned.

can someone clear this up and what it was all about? thnx!

Sorry mate, can't help you. Hell, I'd never heard that before. It's probably just them making something up and using words from a totally unrelated questions.

Well, all I know was she was depressed at the "breaking-up era"

To cope her depression or as I thought it was. She did drugs and also gained wait. I don't know what kind of drugs, maybe coccaine.

I dunno what year you were taking about?

i thought she denied it....but there was a picture or something of her within spitting distance of SOMONE ELSE doing coke, so i guess they just said she was in on it too. :(

she's only ever admitted to 'dabbling' with marajuana i think.... :hum:

But we all know that Mel is not a drog adicted!

Yeh there were pictures of her before she was a Spice Girl, at a party with people doing drugs... but I think the general idea was that she only did marajuana.

I do remember a comment somewhere where she was asked if she had done anything harder, and she said somthing like "no comment!"

I dunno where that was from though

So what? Who wasnt?

Mel was trying drogs, alcohol, tabletes, ...

She obviously quit, because she wouldn't be where she is today. :angel:

Taken from the Melody Maker
Date: 16th August 1997

"Oh, I had the big drugs scandal. My Cocaine Shame. An old friend of mine had
pictures of me at a party and people were doing cocaine in the pic behind me.
The frustrating thing was I wasn't doing cocaine at that party. Typical. If I
was, I wouldn't have minded, at least I would have been guilty as charged. But
who gives a f*** really?"
Well, Mel C does, for a start. She's disarmingly frank on many aspects of the
Spice Girls phenomenon but drugs is the one area where the interview coaching
the girls have allegedly had really kicks in. You can almost see the ghost of
Brian Harvey, the stigmata scars of his tabloid crucifixion still visible,
appear behind her as we broach the subject.

So, have you ever taken drugs?
"I don't want to talk about that. I can't talk about that really."
Does that mean yes?
"No comment. No."
Will you get into trouble if you talk about it?
"Not professionally, but personally."
Are you anti-drugs?
"I am now, yeah. I'm very anti-drugs."
With all the drugs sloshing around the music business, you must have been
tempted?
"No. We don't get offered drugs really. The last time was when I was out
clubbing. Some stranger just came up and said 'Do you want this?' and I'm like
[dons most sarcastic voice ever heard] 'Oh yeah, please!' As if! If it wasn't
for the British press we probably would all be complete druggy pissheads. But
we can't, we have to keep our noses clean cos they're watching us night and
day. Maybe I should thank them for keeping me on the rails!"
When acid house hit Britain, Mel C was a full-on raver. If she didn't take
drugs back then she was about the only clubber who didn't. So she must be
worried about getting the Brian Harvey treatment, right?
"I'd never make the mistake to do that. I wouldn't want to test the waters and
see. I mean, our fans are predominately little kids. It depends on your image.
Everyone expects it from the Gallaghers, but East 17 are a teenybop boy band.
Brian Harvey, what a geek. He obviously has done too many Es, saying that.
I'm really against drugs. If you want to take them, that's cool, but it's not
for me."

Hmm. And that would seem to be the end of it. Except later, we're talking
about measurements of fame and Mel C says:
"There's a new E tab named after us! That's terrible, isn't it? Cos you
imagine, little kids, they go for anything with Spice Girls on.
We were wondering if there are individual ones for each of us: like, if you
want one with a kick you get a Sporty and if you want a mild one you get a
Baby... it's not a laughing matter though, is it?"
You can't help but fear the nation's tabloid editors will heartily agree.


Thanks to 100% Melanie C

I heard all this before, in 1997, with SpiceWorld The movie promo. First friends of mine told me, and time after I read it in "Fotogramas" (a cinema magazine) where they analise each spice girl.
They claimed that Melanie C was with Robbie Williams and she had been cheated with coke. And they said "What a following example to your kids!".
Anyway, as some of you said EVERYONE do stupid things! and we all are with the right to rectify.

I wouldnt be entirely surprised if it ever was true. I mean how else would it explain how big headed she always acted during the ITTY period when the single came out and how loud she was during interviews and promotion for it.

This whole drug thing was talking about Before the Spice Girls, and there was speculation about During the Spice Girls... but not during her solo career, she was, however, on prozac (a legal pescribed anti-depressant) during that time, which explains what you are talking about

beside this, geri writes in "if only" that british press tried to picture melc as a drug-admitted, but she refers "she used to treat her body like a temple", and that if British media knew her deeply as she did, they'd understand it was just a lie..

really don't know what to think..a lot of people in show-business make use of drugs, but i hope mellie doesn't..

everyone tries drugs, its not the worth thing in the world, just apart of growing up.

Mel was always well known for being a health freak and contantly excerising and eating (maybe alittle to) well, i doubt that drugs would be apart of that whole thing.

Yeah, I have heard of that rumour, and Melanie commented on it a couple of times (I think that I've read it somewhere else, not only in that mag, thanx to Stannie for doing the research), and I have read quite a few interviews where she said that she did dabble at college, but said that she didn't do anything else and something like "and if I did, do you really think I would make it this far, be able to work and stuff" (this is not the exact quote, I don't remember the words that she used, I just reflected the idea).

But I have to admit that I am quite keen to see that pic you are talking about here. I did my best to find it, but have no success. Well, yet at least.
