Spice Girls' Mel C Quashes Rumors of 2012 Reunion
I've got some sad news for Spice Girls fans hoping for a 2012 reunion: it's not going to happen! About a month ago, it was reported here that the very popular British girl group might be making a comeback of sorts, starting with the Opening Ceremonies at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London (Will the Spice Girls Spice Up Your Life Again in 2012?). Reports had since surfaced that the girls might also be making an appearance at the Queen's Jubilee, a concert to mark her 60 years on the throne) in June. Well, Sporty Spice, AKA Mel C, has finally stated once and for all that the reunion is not going to happen.
Mel made a recent appearance on morning talk show, Lorraine, and quashed the tempting rumors. "...the concert (the Queen's Jubilee) looks like it's going to be out of this world, but unfortunately - bad news for any Spice Girls fans - we don't plan to perform or reform. So I'm sorry to disappoint anybody." The singer went on to say that discussions did occur, but apparently not everyone was in agreement over the reunion and so it won't be happening.
Ah well, it was a nice dream while it lasted, no? I'm sure that the rumor mongering about this reunion will linger probably right up until both events happen. Such is the basis of the gossip mills, but at least we still have their music to enjoy and Spice Girl fans everywhere can keep dreaming of a day when Posh, Sporty, Scary, Baby and Ginger might one day perform together again. That would be nice!
