Victoria Beckham has opened up about the reason she finally agreed to reunite with the Spice Girls.
Last week a picture Victoria shared of the five women posing together at a meeting at Geri Horner’s house went viral, such was the excitement about an official reunion.
The singer turned fashion designer has turned down a reunion in the past, but has now revealed that it was the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements in Hollywood that inspired her to reunite with her old bandmates.
The girls last performed together at the closing ceremony of the 2012 Olympics, but it was Hollywood’s own version of Girl Power that encouraged Victoria to give the green light to a reunion.
“The Time’s Up and #MeToo movements have shone a light on how powerful we can be when we work together to bring about change,” she said.
“That is incredibly inspiring. My career has always focused on empowering and celebrating women, so the momentum that these movements brought only makes me even more determined and passionate in my beliefs.”
Victoria, alongside the other Spice Girls Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton had a meeting with their former manager, Simon Fuller, last week and have confirmed that they are now set to work on new projects together.
A statement, released by Jo Milloy on behalf of the group read: “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching-up and reminiscing about the amazing times we spent together. We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls.
“The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together. We all agree that there are many exciting possibilities that will once again embrace the original essence of The Spice Girls, while reinforcing our message of female empowerment for future generations.”
The girls are now expected to perform at concerts in the UK and the US as part of their reunion tour this summer.
Viva Forever ladies!
