The Spice Girls always said, “if you want my future, forget my past.” But now that their 20-year anniversary is quickly approaching, Melanie “Scary Spice” Brown is singing a different tune. When asked if she had any plans with the girl group in 2014, the “America’s Got Talent” judge said there’s always room for a reunion in her agenda.
“It will be our 20th year anniversary next year so I’m hoping we do get together and do something,” Mel B told MTV News. “It kind of would be a shame if we didn’t.”
While Scary is up for getting the girls back together, Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham recently revealed she wouldn’t want in on the festivities.
“I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour,” Beckham told Vogue Paris. “It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere. It wasn’t a lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn’t there.”
With or without her four counterparts, Scary hasn’t given up on music. She recently released the track “For Once in My Life” without the help of Ginger, Baby, Sporty and Posh — or a major label.
“I’m doing it all myself and funding everything myself so I wanted to do it my way and it had to be the right way,” she said. “It’s been seven years since I’ve done music, so when I got back in the studio, I really wanted to write an anthemic-ish song about me, you know, not doing music and coming out of the dark and just letting go and not having a care in the world.”
So even though a Spice Girl reunion might not be in their future, Scary will always keep fond memories of their past.
“There’s so many highlights from being with the Spice Girls and touring,” she said. “From meeting Nelson Mandela and hanging out with him at his home, being able to go to Japan and greeting all the Japanese fans, touring Europe, I mean there are so many different things, we’ve done quite a lot, thanks to all the support from Spice fans.”
