Over before it ever began.

Over before it ever began.

Earlier this month, rumors ran rampant that The Spice Girls were getting the band back together to embark on several projects, including a UK/US tour. The ladies seemingly confirmed the news when they posted a photo of their reunion together, but according to Posh, it was a meeting to revel in nostalgia and simply brainstorm some opportunities together.

“I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” she confirmed to Vogue.

“It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely. There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming.”

In a join statement, The Spices said their meeting was to explore “exciting possibilities…” whatever that means, “We have enjoyed a wonderful afternoon catching up and reminiscing about the amazing times we have spent together,” it reads. “We are always overwhelmed at how much interest there is across the whole world for The Spice Girls.”

They add: “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.”

Beckham does recognize the significance of all five women banding together during a time when the #MeToo movement is in full swing.

“There’s so much bad stuff going on and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality,” she continued. “I think there’s so much that the brand can do and it’s such a positive message for young kids.”

Earlier reports suggested Victoria would not agree to a reunion if she had to record new music, so fans settled with a tour. But now that this isn’t happening, what’s left to do?! Judge a singing competition in China and make new merchandise? Keep it.
