Spice Girls Start New Trend

It appears that the Spice Girls were the first group to
ever show commercials before their concert and during
intermission on the large concert screens throughout their
American Tour. The advertisements were apparently very
successfull and music industry experts believe the band has
opened up a whole new source of revenue.

Hard-Asses

Apparently Virgin records executives are not pleased with
the pregnancies of Mel B and Victoria. They are all worked
up because the promotional campaign for the 3rd album has
to be reworked and delayed. They are also a bit flustered
up about the girls' safe sex song on the 3rd album. Of
course it's a bit too raunchy for virgin to like. They also
don't like the idea of the girls being in a video for the
safe sex song while being pregnant. Hard Assed Virgin Music
needs to give the Spice Girls some breathing room I think!

Victoria Confirms Pregnancy

Date: August 23rd, 1998

News: Victoria has confirmed today that she is indeed
pregnant. Here is what she said:
"When I told David I was pregnant he just started weeping.
He must have cried for about an hour and I had tears running
down my face too. It was a very emotional moment for both
of us. The baby wasn't planned so it was a surprise mixed
with real delight. I think telling David he was going to be
a dad really put things in perspective for him because I
know he's had such a hard year professionally."

Victoria has told a friend:
"We'd love a girl but of course we'd be thrilled with a boy
as well. We've been discussing names and quite like Chelsea
but Augusta or Augustine as well."

Victoria, known for her love of designer labels, wants pal
Donatella Versace, sister of murdered fashion boss Gianni,
to design the tot's christening gown. Once again the other
girls were shocked about the announcement but have vowed to
carry on as a band WITH Victoria. The girls will take some
major time off after the tour ends. Victoria WILL be
performing the final September UK tour dates.

More Sparks

Date: August 20th, 1998

News: More sparks continue to be made between the Spice
Girls and Geri Halliwell. When the girls were interviewed
on the Tonight Show on Monday Jay asked them if there is
anything different about touring in America and Victoria
responded "Yeah...one of us left!" which brought some humor
to the audience as Jay started making catfight sounds. The
girls also had a "Spice Girls Joke" that Emma told that went
like this:
"What is the difference between the Spice Girls and an Indian
Curry?" Jay said "What?" And Emma replied:
"An Indian Curry has ginger in it!"
which brought more laughter to the audience and more cat
hissing sounds from Jay. The girls said that they however
have no real hard feelings with Geri, that was before
Victoria's joke however and there were no reassurances after
that! In a BBC interview Mel C says that Geri will never
storm the pop charts again, she thinks she will probably do
television. This is not intended to be a harsh comment on
Mel C's side. The thing that I find interesting and nobody
else seems to notice is that both the Spice Girls AND Geri
Halliwell are in Los Angeles at the same time, yet there are
no reports of them visiting or interacting whatsoever.
