Just Give Us Cash

Victoria has stated that the only wedding gift she really wants from anyone is money! She has asked that her wedding presents be shopping vouchers or cash - convertible units of exchange, in whichever form is most convenient to the giver. Victoria is not alone in this request. A survey shows that one in five couples between 25 and 35 are going for this new cashback style of weddings.

Alone Can Be Scary

Mel G admits that there are some difficult times when doing a solo album. In a recent radio interview with London radio station Choice 96.9FM Scary Spice talks about how she was Scaredy Spice when it came to approaching Mary J. Blige about contributing to her solo album. Mel said:

"I had her home telephone number and I daren't call it for about a week, I was like should I, should I? I mean, she had given me her number, so it was obvious she was cool with it, I suppose I just got a bit scared. She is one of the people who I just think is fantastic. She's got so much passion and so much conviction about herself, I think she's brilliant, I really do. She's just got a voice to die for."

Mel also talked about problems of recording outside of Spice Girls:

"If I couldn't reach the high notes, Melanie would step in and if I couldn't reach the low notes Geri would step in, so it's kind of a bit easy vocally, whereas now when you're by yourself you've got no back-up. It's all one big learning experience at the end of the day and I love it, I am a big learner and I love a challenge. It's nice to be able to get finally into my own projects which I have been wanting to do for quite a while."

"Football is the greatest game in the world and I think it's wicked that girls will now have as much chance to play football as boys. I used to love playing footie with my local team, Watford Ladies, and it's something I'd love to get back into. So come on girls, show those boys what you're made of!"

Break In!

A van full of thugs slipped past the security gates of David Beckham and Victoria Adams' home in Cheshire. The van parked by Victoria's blue Mercedes. Victoria shouted down from a window at the intruders and informed them that they were on private property. The intruders only replied with swearing and making threats. When Victoria dialed 999 the intruders left. A week earlier, one of the couple's cars had been vandalised outside their home. A police spokesman said:

"They may have been fans of a rival football team who had sussed out where the couple lived. They hurled abuse, but drove off before the police arrived."

Emma Talks To TV Times

In a small interview with TV Times, Emma made comments on rumors of her seeking a sexier imagine and acting:

"Everybody tries to sex up Baby Spice and it doesn't work. Victoria is very sexy but not me. Well, I like to be sexy but I don't like it in your face. I prefer it to be a bit prettier, a bit cute."

"The other Spice Girls treat me like their little sister because I'm the youngest."

"Music is my first love, but I'd love to try acting again and see how good I am. I just have to go for it. If I'm rubbish, I'm rubbish, but we always say we'll never break up. There's so much more we want to do. We talk about going on stage with our zimmer frames and singing Wannabe."
