Friendship never ends.
Over the summer, reports ran rampant the Spice Girls were reuniting (minus Victoria Beckham — she claims she’s too busy), but the mania died down when a few of the ladies Tweeted they were the last to know of a reunion.

Though Nick Carter is petitioning for the girls to team up with the Backstreet Boys for a tour, it appears the ladies have their sights set on their own tour kicking off some time in 2016 — their 20-year reunion after their initial debut in 1996 with “Wannabe.”
Billboard asked Mel B if a tour will happen.
“Potentially, yeah,” she said. “Once we sort everything out we make an announcement, but right now we’re just figuring it all out. Next year is your 20 anniversary so we’re really just trying to make sure something happens.”
Damn. 20 years.
“Hmm. I remember things like it was yesterday and we’re still really good friends, but it definitely still feels like we’ve done stuff a long time ago because music has changed so much. But we had so much fun and we did the Olympics a few years ago. We’re going to have fun if everything works out — which hopefully it will — for next year.”
She adds, “We’re figuring stuff out. As soon as we figure it out we’ll tell every detail, but until then there’s not much to say. It’s like when you’re dating somebody and everyone is forcing you to get married. It’s like, “We’re getting married! Just give us a second to figure it out!”
See you in 2016!
