Last month, Michael brought you the bittersweet news that the Spice Girls were thinking of putting on a 20th anniversary reunion tour (YAAAY) but that it might not include Sporty or Posh (NOOO). Neither were that into it, which is insane, because who the hell wouldn’t want to spend several months of their life getting paid to sing “Spice Up Your Life“? That’s every karaoke drunk’s dream.
Earlier today, on the 20th anniversary of the release of “Wannabe“, Scary, Ginger and Baby released a video on their brand new website announcing…that they have an announcement to make soon. They don’t say what the announcement will be. But their old producer Eliot Kennedy did confirm to the BBC that Scary, Ginger, and Baby have been in the studio recently. They’re also apparently going by Spice Girls GEM now (you know, for Geri, Emma, and Melanie). See, even they know it’s not really the Spice Girls without Sporty and Posh.
The last we heard, GEM (I zig-a-zig-can’t with that name) was planning on replacing Sporty and Posh. But considering they’ve registered the domain name SpiceGirlsGem.com, they seem pretty committed to being a threesome. And really, if that video has taught me anything, it’s that they’d technically only need to find a replacement for Sporty. Thanks to Geri’s new accent, she can totally do Ginger and Posh!
