The artist says she’s proud to be an underdog
Mel B isn’t afraid to admit her faults and failures, as they have proven to be a “massive learning curve” for the artist.
The former Spice Girl, who describes herself as an underdog, explained to BW magazine: “I am an underdog. That is what makes my job more colourful and more comfortable for me because I have been through everything. I’ve had highs, I’ve had lows. I’ve been popular, I’ve been unpopular.
I’ve had number ones, I’ve had number 100s. I’ve never not admitted my failures. Everything I’ve done, whether that be a failure to someone else, has actually been a massive learning curve for me, both professionally and personally.”
And the singer – who has three children – has gotten used to hard work and she owes the lifestyle to her parents.
She said: “Of course I work hard. That is from my upbringing. My mum and dad are working-class people.
They took on two and three jobs each. All my parents did was work their arses off to pay the bills, so it is kind of ingrained in me to work.”
While Mel B is primarily known as a Spice Girl and as a judge on the likes of America’s Got Talent, she also wants to be known as a versatile businesswoman.
“In this day and age in the entertainment world, you have to be an entrepreneur and a businesswoman. You are giving yourself.
Everything I’ve either endorsed or am owner of company-wise, it has to make sense. It is not like back in the day where you got given a s******d of money just to be the face of, and take a picture.”
