This year Spice Girls fans had their hearts played with when the group reunited and sparked reunion tours. From then one, Mel B (Sporty Spice) kept saying the group is going on tour while Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) kept saying otherwise.
The back and forth between the former bandmates had reached its peak. Mel B dressed up as Victoria for Halloween. She wore a little black dress and mask of Victoria’s face. The only odd thing about her costume was that she was holding a double ax that read “NO I AM not GOING ON tour.”
Her costume was from 90s era Posh and her partner, Gary Madatyan, dressed up as David Beckham, Victoria’s husband. Gary wore a backward Beckham soccer jersey, blonde wig and aviators. The backward jersey is a lot like the public wouldn’t get his obvious costume. And add more fuel to the fire, Gary was also holding a makeshift weapon that reads “Please, please, please do it for the Spice fans.”
The shade is very real and not subtle. In February 2018, the five Spice Girls reunited and posted their mini-reunion on Instagram. Fans went nuts and assumed something was coming from the most successful girl group of all time, especially because their former manager was at the reunion.
Rumors of a reunion tour began to swirl until Victoria dashes them down. She told Vogue UK, “I’m not going on a tour. The girls aren’t going on a tour.”
That being said Victoria didn’t deny that the Spice Girls might be making new stuff because their platform is so large, but a tour is out of the question. Then it was rumored that a second Spice Girls movie would be happening, but this time as a cartoon voiced by the girls.
But Mel B is still saying a reunion tour is happening despite the countless times Victoria said no. In June 2018 she told The Today Show host Hoda Kotb that a reunion is happening. “I’m the only one that keeps on saying we’re going to be performing, which we are gonna be performing,” Mel B said.
When Kotb asked about Victoria denying the tour rumors Mel B responded, “She’s always saying that. Stop it. We are touring,” Mel B retorted. “Should I have really said that out loud? Yes, we are going to be doing performances together for sure.”
Then in September Mel B continued her Spice Girls Reunion story on James Corden’s Late Late Show. She said that four of the members are for sure touring, but Victoria is up in the air. “We’ll see about that one,” Mel B said about Victoria according to Billboard. “But us four are definitely going on tour.”
Then she added, “She [Beckham] may join us for a few. She better do.”
Mel B’s Posh costume takes the reunion tour beef to a whole new level. What do you think about her costume?
