Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with our intrepid correspondents. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Back in the late '90s, Geri Halliwell made a name for herself as Ginger Spice, one-fifth of the Spice Girls, a legendarily huge pop group who not only scored a ton of huge hits but also ushered in a new wave of popularity for sugary sweet dance melodies and in-your-face ladies. Their sticky singles (especially "Wannabe" and "2 Become 1"), eclectic personalities and constant nods to "Girl power" made them international sensations who still command respect (at least in the United Kingdom). Halliwell was the first member to leave the Spice Girls to pursue a solo career, and the three solo albums she has released since then have all been hits. She has also developed an impressive portfolio away from the music world, including a lot of charity work and a new line of bikinis that were just unveiled at the Savoy Hotel in London. Though she long ago ditched her trademark Union Jack dress, she still retains the same look and attitude that she had with her group (which also translates to her swimsuit designs).
She wasn't the only star taking care of business, as Jon Bon Jovi hosted a benefit concert at the Starland Ballroom in Sayerville, New Jersey, and Elton John stopped by the studios of BBC Radio Two in London. Click here for these photos as well as the entire "Spotted" archive, which features over 500 candid shots of stars like Britney Spears, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, Eminem, Madonna, Lady Gaga, the Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry, Shakira and Mariah Carey!
