It was a hard decision, but the singer feels relieved
Mel C and Victoria Beckham have officially decided not to take part in the upcoming Spice Girls reunion next year. And despite Mel B trying to convince them otherwise, the Version of Me singer stands by her decision and feels relieved by it.
As it stands, the reunion will effectively consist of Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner. However, Mel C still loves to keep in touch with her former bandmates every now and again.
She told the Sunday Post newspaper: “It was a really hard decision to make. But once it was made I felt very relieved and that proved to me that my instinct was right. There’s always an ebb and flow to how much we stay in touch.
We have spells of seeing each other and then not speaking for months. Family life and career takes over. I’d love to see the girls more and when we do have periods of being in each other’s lives, it’s lovely.”
The 42-year-old artist admits that being on the charts made her feel like she was flying, adding: “In the early days we didn’t know what was going to happen but we were so ambitious and determined. After we released ‘Wannabe‘ every single went to No 1. It was like everything we touched turned to gold.
I remember the record company having a wobble with ‘Too Much’ in 1997. It was the big rush for the Christmas No 1 and they were worried we might lose out to the Teletubbies. We were saying, you can’t be serious? Even if we don’t get to No 1 that can’t be a reason not to release it for Christmas. We did release and we did get to No 1, so our courage paid off. It really was an incredible time. It felt like we were flying.”
