Mel B Wants Spice Girls Reunion: “It’s About Time!” — WATCH VIDEO HERE!
The singer was on Friday’s “Tonight Show” to promote “America’s Got Talent,” and kicked off her appearance by giving Jimmy Fallon a kiss on his forehead, continuing her tradition of leaving a lipstick mark on his face. “I’m gonna blush until you can’t see the lipstick,” an amusingly embarrassed Fallon announced.
The host wanted to know all about the star’s family, and Mel B hilariously recounted her expletive-laden reactions to her 16-year-old’s driving. Fallon segued into asking the Brit about a possible Spice Girls reunion, and she revealed her daughter is actually pushing for one. “She’s been like the champion of this,” Mel B admitted. “Like ‘Mum, you girls have to do Coachella.'”
Why Coachella? Mel B isn’t exactly sure, but she suspects her daughter just wants an excuse to get into the famous music festival. Regardless, though, Mel B confessed, “But I want us to get back together! I think we should. It’s been 20 years. It’s about time.” Indeed, the Spice Girls formed in 1994, and had their breakthrough with “Wannabe” in 1996.
After a years-long hiatus, they last all performed together at the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony in London. Since then, there’s been various false claims of a reunion tour, which Gossip Cop has corrected, though Mel B said in 2013 that she’s wanted to embark on such a project. Victoria Beckham, meanwhile, has sworn that her days with the group are over.
That said, Beckham remains close to Mel C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell, and the four have had a couple mini-reunions for special occasions this year, as Gossip Cop has noted. Check out the video below, and tell us if you’d like the Spice Girls to formally get back together!
