MelC Virginity Loss

-=RUMOR WARNING=-
The Spice Girl who talks the least about this type of thing
seems to have released more info about it then any of the
other girls. Apparently in an interview with ID magazine
Mel revealed that she lost her virginity at the age of 16.
Mel is apparently quoted as saying:
"It was getting to the point with my boyfriend where we were
getting more intimate with each other. So when nobody was
around I lost my virginity on the bunk bed I used to share
with my brother. I wanted to have sex before I was 16
though I never got round to it."

Album 3 In Spring or not?

The Spice Girls were interviewed on an Israeli televsion show
about a week and a half ago. It was mostly routine stuff,
but there was this exchange:

Q: Your new album is due in Spring '99. Some of the songs
(that) were destined to be there were written with Geri
originally. Are you going to include them too?

A: (By Emma:) Ummm, well, for the next album, we will be
writing brand new songs; and, you know, we're taking it
slowy and enjoying the process, because we've been very very
busy, the last album we did was due with the film, so it was
a bit hectic, but this time we're taking our time. We don't
want to say just yet when it would be out, 'cause, you know,
we wanna enjoy it in the process. (MelB in the background:
takin' it easy, man!)

MelC Love Rumor Killer

MelC killed some rumors in Smash Hits magazine as far as her
love life goes. She said:
"I wanted to clear up some silly rumours that have been in the papers,"
whispered Mel C down the phone one evening last fortnight. "And I know
Smash Hits always likes to get its facts right, so here goes...
"I know people have been saying that I'm seeing Jimmy from 911, but I've
NEVER met Jimmy on a romantic basis. I've bumped into him at work things,
and we've said hello and all that, but I don't really even know him!
"As for Kavana, I'm not seeing him and I never have been - he's just my
little mate! I gave him a birthday kiss - no tongues or NOTHING - and the
next thing, everyone was saying that I snogged him. Well, I didn't! So
there you go - that's the truth, straight from the horse's mouth!"

Apparently a spokesperson for Virgin Records has said that
"new songs from the Spice Girls will be released in the year
2000. In the meantime fans can look forward to solo
material from Emma, Mel B and Mel C."
This of course completely contradicts the girls saying that

see what the girls say.

The Spice Girls minus Mel B recently visited a the Royal

the children for about an hour which was broadcast live over

have a look round on their own. They were very sweet and
all the kids loved them."

Goodbye Review

In a shocking discovery I saw that Billboard Magazine's
review of "Goodbye" is extremely positive! Here is the
review:

"Goodbye" (4:10) Virgin Records America

Sometimes, it takes nothing more than a change in the
direction of the wind to signal a dramatic shift in a pop
group's appeal with American audiences. It will be
fascinating to see how radio and fans react to this single,
now that the hype behind Geri "Ginger Spice" Halliwell's
departure has subsided.

This ballad follows in the spirit of "Too Much" and, on its
own, deserves every shot for a healthy run on American radio.
The melody is absolutely beautiful, in fact, one of the
group's most memorable, with well-rounded harmonies and a
message sweetly (and savvily) directed as much toward Ginger
as to the departure of a lover or dear friend. Video play
could be key here, given the Girls' less flashy, downright
ladylike makeover.

Overseas, this one's already being heralded as the one to
beat in the annual battle for the holiday No. 1; here, it
most certainly deserves similar favor. Watch for the single
to arrive at retail Dec. 8.

Rumor Killer

The following 2 things were only rumors:

Emma and her boyfriend Jade are going to do a cover of the
song "Endless Love". - KILLED

Victoria is going to be in the next James Bond film. - STILL
A RUMOR

The Emma & Jade rumor was killed by Emma herself when she and
Mel B did a brief interview on Power 92(radio) in Edmonton,
Alberta Canada.

The Victoria Bond Babe rumor is still a rumor, however an
Eon Productions representative said "It's absolutely not true."
Eon Productions are responsible for the movie! So it's looking
a bit doubtfull now.

Apologies for not stating that the above 2 were only rumors
in previous posts as i myself didn't even know it. I will
try to have more concrete sources next time and post rumor
warning on posts which are rumors.
