20 Years Later, The Spice Girls Are Reuniting For More Than The Early Bird Special at Country Kitchen Buffet
The musican reunion we’ve all been waiting for since 2009 might finally be happening. No, it’s not the Traveling Wilburys jamming together in hell; Bob Dylan is thankfully still alive. So is Jeff Lynne. No one actually asked about Jeff Lynne, but he wanted me to mention his name. He’s spent the last thirty years being referred to as “the other one,” essentially the Sporty Spice of the Traveling Wilburys. Oh yeah, the Spice Girls are reuniting.
Victoria Beckham posted this picture of the group all together to her Instagram. I feel like they’re going to need new Spice code names, because “Baby” and “Sexy” aren’t really applicable anymore. How about “Aunt Linda’s ‘Special Friend’ Spice,” “So Unbearably Posh I Vote Tory Spice,” “Dawn From The Office Spice,” “Botox Spice” and “Jeff Lynne Spice.”
Beckham also posted this second picture of the band with Simon Fuller, the group’s manager and the creator of Pop Idol, which was brought stateside as American Idol. I just have to say, if you told me in 1997 that the Spice Girls would be reuniting 20 years later, I wouldn’t have cared even a little bit. But if you’d have told me that when they did, Melanie Chisholm would be the hot one, I would have been sure you were lying and wouldn’t have heeded your other warnings like “buy Bitcoin, but make sure you sell it before it crashes again” or “tell Hillary Clinton to campaign in Wisconsin.”
Okay, so the Spice Girls aren’t going to tour or do a new album or anything. According to The Sun, Victoria Beckham only agreed to the reunion under he condition that she wouldn’t have to sing. The reunion will involve edorsements, a greatest hits album, a televised talent show (I’m assuming something like Pop Idol) and possibly television in China, who are just now getting around to the 1990’s.
Personally, I don’t see how they can reunite without doing a sequel to Spice World. Where is the Spice Girls Cinematic Universe? Spin-offs for each Spice Girl, a Simon Fuller solo film, all culminating in… well, I don’t know what, but I’m sure it’ll be better than Justice League.
It’s the ultimate 90’s fantasy… and will still remain as one.
Remember 2011’s NKOTBSB? Well, you may all heard the boy band’s genius plan to join Spice Girls in a concert tour… but it sadly isn’t happening anymore.
“From what I’ve heard, they want to do their own tour. I think it’s their 20th anniversary, were back in the studio making a brand new album, so everyone’s doing their own thing,” member A.J. McLean clarifies in an interview with 103.5 KTU’s Cubby & Carolina.
In an interview with ET, Scary Spice Mel B also hints at the cancellation, “We want the stage to ourselves if we’re going to do it! But, I love the Backstreet Boys. They’re great.”
Please reconsider, girls.

Mind blown! And it appears as though fan girls are already prepared to rally behind the talented youngster. One follower commented:
"Awww cruz u are so adorable and have amazing voice well done#lovethebeckhams 😍😍😍💞@victoriabeckham"
We couldn't have said it better ourselves. In fact, many followers have since labeled the young Beckham kiddo the "next Justin Bieber". Another fan noted:
"Am I hearing the new @justinbieber??? @victoriabeckham @davidbeckham"
We know that's meant to be a compliment, but we have a feeling Vicky B would rather her son NOT get into the same trouble the Biebs' has previously gotten into. LOLz!
Regardless, we think that little Cruz definitely has talent and, with his parents' connections, he could probably pursue a music career without any major hiccups. Good luck, buddy!
