As unbelievable as it may sound, the rumors appear to be true… as it is their 20-year reunion, the Spice Girls are planning to have some kind of a celebration! Of course these rumors have been circulating for quite some time now like any other big celebrity news, which makes the news still slightly iffy. Regardless, I couldn’t help but write about this, because the Spice Girls were such a huge part of my childhood. I will never forget all the fun I had both alone and with my friends, singing and dancing along to their songs. Stop was definitely my favorite one back then, but I really enjoyed their other hits also. It always shocks me how even though so much time has passed (20 years it seems), I still know them all by heart. Goes to show how well the memory works, doesn’t it? I think one of my favorite memories is when me and several other kids at the JCC summer day camp tried so hard to learn the dance to Stop to perform for our families. I love how back then I wouldn’t have been embarrassed to do a thing like that, because these days, there is just no way that would ever happen! As it is their 20th anniversary, it means that they started back in 1996, doing their very first single, Wannabe.
So far, it seems that three out of the original five singers are going to be taking part in this reunion. From what I read in the article, Victoria Beckham A.K.A Posh Spice and Melanie C. (Sporty Spice) have decided against it. Personally, I am pretty excited about this news, mostly because of how much I liked them back in the day and how popular they were, but also because Geri Horner (Ginger Spice) plans on being a part of the celebration. Geri was the one member who I believe decided to leave the group in 1998, so the fact that she still wants to see the others is pretty impressive. My personal favorite was always Posh Spice, no idea why. I don’t really know much about what they are up to nowadays, except that Mel B. is one of the judges on America’s Got Talent.
