SPICE UP YOUR WORLD!!

Who’s ready for a Spice Girls comeback? Come on, raise those hands high…….?

Well, SOMEone is ready. And someone upstairs (at Victoria’s Secret) loves those girls. Their new ‘greatest hits’ album will be distributed EXCLUSIVELY at Victoria’s Secrets stores worldwide.

Wow. That is some deal. Why? Melanie B. explains…

“They do great bras, and every girl wears a bra. And they should – at some point in their life. Unless they don’t need to wear one,”

Yes! Well put, Scary.

You know, when I read this I ignorantly thought to myself, greatest hits? Why, they couldn’t have more than that one album which would by default be their greatest hits!

WRONG! Once I had done my research, I found that their extensive discography includes, in addition to their obvious hit Spiceworld, Singalonga Spice, the karaoke album, Viva Forever CD1 Enhanced, and Forever. Not to mention their DVD catalog: Zig-a-zig-Ahhh the unauthorized DVD. And Spice World. Obvs.

Then for a while I thought they were doing REALLY well, and even had their own channel. (NSFW) I was a little mistaken on that one.

But bringing your attention back to the original People article on this phenomenon, aptly titled Bra Power!!… they offer more news:

The partnership also extends to television: Baby (Emma Bunton), Ginger (Geri Halliwell), Scary (Mel B.), Sporty (Melanie C.) and Posh (Victoria Beckham) will perform during the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show, which tapes in Los Angeles on Nov. 14 and airs on CBS Dec. 4.

Posh is the only with whose name is live-linked! That a harsh commentary by the heartless bastards at people.com. scary-eddie.jpgscary-eddie.jpg

Scary is saying to herself, did I have Eddie Murphy’s illegitimate baby for nothing?

Ginger is saying, did I launch my solo career and get nominated for THREE Brit awards for nothing?

Baby is saying, did I appear on Strictly Come Dancing, the British precursor to Dancing with the Stars, for nothing?

Sporty is saying, did I record a cover of I Want Candy that peaked at no. 24 on the British Charts (um, ??) for NOTHING?!?!?

Please, People.com, do not ignore the successes and failures of the girls. They work hard for their lost fame. Even if they’re not scientologists, they are still worthy of html links in their names.

So I applaud you, Spice Girls of yore! But ladies, go with what you know! What the shit kind of promo shot is this? You need some pigtails, tube tops, and open screaming mouths, stat. See you at Vicky’s!

Color Me Posh

Tonight NBC’s premiering an hour long documentary on Victoria Beckham’s (aka Posh Spice) move to the U.S. Now I know many of you find this topic to be not only useless, but in some ways even detrimental to modern day culture. However, I would like to remind you all that Victoria Beckham is the closest thing this world has to a female robot, and therefore I think this fascination with the former spice girl should not be looked down upon. But rather, it should be embraced.

Although, I guess my thoughts on Vict Beck might be a bit biased, since I really dig her new haircut.

And her husband.

And her former career choices.

But even if I didn’t find any of those topics interesting, I think I’d still enjoy watching Victoria as she tries to take over Los Angeles.
