Girl Power Day

Tomorrow(July 1st) is Girl Power day. From the official Spice Girls site:

Girl Power Day on 1st July marks the anniversary of the release of Wannabe in 1996.

Here's what Melanie C says about it:

"Girl Power means different things to different people, but for me, it's just about being strong and confident as a woman. In history, women have taken second place to the boss and the master most of the time, but we're all equal and we're all human, no matter what sex, shape, size, colour or religion we are. Just remember that! Every day of my life is dedicated to Girl Power. It's just an attitude, but 1 July is a great day to be really conscious of it. I might whistle at some builders and have a couple of pints down the pub to celebrate!"

Here's what Victoria Beckham says about it:

"For me, every day is Girl Power Day, especially being a working mum. David's often away and so I have to be a strong individual and do a lot for myself. "Girl Power is all about doing what you want, being strong in what you believe in and standing up for those beliefs. I'm working all the time at the moment, so on Girl Power Day I might make a special effort to have the evening off, get a babysitter for Brooklyn, ask a few of my friends round and have a bit of a celebration!"

Here's what Emma says about it:

"Girl Power has always meant a lot to me, even when I was younger and the phrase didn't exist. I'd never want people to think that Girl Power means we hate boys. It's nothing to do with that. It's about everybody standing up for their own rights and doing what they want to do, instead of being afraid to do it, especially women. In the past, women have thought that men could be better than them, but that's not the case. We're all equal and we're standing up for our own rights. On Girl Power Day, I'll probably hang out with my Mum and do something fun. Two Girl Powers are better than one! I've been making a few trips to my local hospital recently, so it would be nice to pop down there. And one thing I really, really want to do is go paint-balling with my brother - and get a few bruises! It would be great if we could organise it for 1 July."

There are millions of things you can do to celebrate Girl Power Day, from putting on your biggest shoes and going out with your best mates or popping your boyfriend the big question, to simply just accepting yourself for who and what you are.

But what the Spice Girls really, really want you to do on 1st July is tell them if Girl Power has changed your life, and how.

"Write to us at: Girl Power Day, PO Box 25777, London SW20 8WE" say the Girls.

"And remember, stay loud and proud, be strong and always believe in yourself, whether you're a girl or a boy!!!"

Love, Peace and Girl Power

Melanie C, Melanie B, Emma and Victoria

Victoria's Minder Arrested

Victoria Beckham's former minder Mark Niblett has been arrested over a death threat letter recieved by the couple. This is the same man who was fired a few weeks ago by the couple for such possible concerns. He was also the one trying to write the book about his time with the Beckhams(Story). Niblett, 35, was quizzed by Scotland Yard over allegations of sending threatening letters. He was bailed out and is due to return in August. He is the man thought to be responsible for many threatening letters and defaced photographs sent to the family(Story). He was a regular baby sitter of Brooklyn Beckham before being fired.

Tell Me

Melanie B's next single from her upcoming album Hot will be entitled "Tell Me". The song is a diss and attack on former husband Jimmy Gulzar. The song attacks Jimmy and accuses him of only liking Melanie for her money. Some lyrics from the song are:

"It was the saddest day, you made me think I wasn't worth anything. Now I see you didn't have any self-esteem. And all you loved was Mel B's money."

"I can see right through you, you're the fool. I can't believe I was so blind. I didn't see that you could never be the type of man to meet my needs."

Jimmy was quickly caught up with and asked for his impression of the news. Jimmy said:

"I think it is quite an honour that she has written a song about me. She really went for it in the song. But I don't wish her ill and I hope the song is successful."

MelC On Girl Thing

Melanie C was on television show CD:UK(UK) on June 23rd and said the following about the latest British girl band "Girl Thing":

"I think it's a bit sad that their management and record company have just tried to rip off the Spice Girls. I fear for them because management and record companies are evil."

One of the group's singers, Michelle Barber, replied:

"We are getting compared to the Spice Girls quite a lot, but at the end of the day we are not them. Yes, we are five girls who have individual personalities, but that's it. We are not trying to be the Spice Girls, it's our record company who are touting us as their successors."

Whats New Pussycat?

Whats new pussycat, whoooaaa whooooaaaa whoooaaaaaah.. Sorry couldn't help myself, ahem.. Victoria is considering taking the starring role in the movie based on the best-selling novel What's New Pussycat? The movie is a romantic comedy set in London's modern day Notting Hill. Victoria is reported to have met the heads of film production company Tiger Aspects last week to discuss her role in the film. This film has no connection with the 1960s version starring Peter Sellers but is rather based on the book published at the end of April that has been hugely successful. It tells the story of a 27-year-old woman who turns her back on her home town of Bradford and goes to London in search of excitement. So she packs her Tom Jones record collection in her Beetle and heads south, where she falls for a wealthy TV producer. But it's not all plain sailing and Delilah starts to wonder if she will ever fit into his glamorous life-style of Dolce & Gabbana and Dom Perignon.

"There is a project they are trying to get off the ground. It is probably a bit more than at the discussion stage".

About Out Of Your Mind

Victoria made an appearance on BBC Radio 1 and told presenter Chris Moyles that "Out Of Your Mind"(See Below Story) will be released as a single on August 14th. On August 6th Victoria will perform the song for the station at a roadshow in Middlesbrough. Victoria said:

"We've got a great show planned. We've worked hard on it. We've got a big dance routine planned, with the guys from Truesteppers suspended in G-strings from the ceiling in cages. I like this kind of music, but I haven't done this kind of thing before, so it is a first. I've been writing my own album, but this is the first thing to be released. It's scary."

Interestingly enough "Out Of Your Mind" was played on BBC Radio 1 for three weeks before it was revealed a couple days ago that it was Victoria's vocals on the track!

Out Of Your Mind - Breaking News!

Victoria Solo Material!! The rumors were true of Victoria's collaboration with Truesteppers(Story). The song she did with them entitled "Out Of Your Mind" was played for the first time on radio last night! The best rip of it is probably the MP3 at Case Music. Go get it there, or here is a local copy!

Thanks to everyone who sent it in, mostly Case for having the best version.

The song is dope!!! Prepare yourselves, this marks the beginning of an onslaught of new Spice Music for the year 2000.

Victoria Furious At Tell All Book Attempt


After switching body guard firms for security reasons, an ex-bodyguard which was close to the Beckham family is supposedly planning to release a tell all book about his experiences with the couple. It is rumored that the Beckhams switched security firms because this man was thought as a possible threat since he was getting very close to the family. The Beckham's allegedly had a bad feeling about him. Now the man plans to release a tell all book about his close experience with the family, details about the family, and even private photographs. A 'close source' said:

"This has made Victoria physically sick. All the Spice Girls have a history of enforcing confidentiality agreements and Victoria will do in this case as well."

I Turn To You Remixes

Over at Case Music there are some newly released remixes of Melanie C's next single "I Turn To You" in proper MP3 format.

Victoria Solo Single


Victoria will launch her solo music career by teaming up with dance act True Steppers for her debut single. The single will be released in August and she has already recorded vocals for the song. The single will be released under Arista Records. An Arista insider said:

"Posh Spice is going to surprise everyone by getting together with True Steppers. At one stage they weren't even going to credit Victoria with the vocals on the track because the group wanted it to remain an underground dance smash. The song will prove Victoria is much more than just a pretty pop babe."

True Steppers are an underground garage group who had a previous top 10 smash with "Buggin'" which featured Dane Bowers from Another Level. Victoria's full album is to be released sometime in 2001.

Victoria To Miss Soccer Game

Victoria was planning to attend her husband's upcoming soccer game against Germany but her husband David has told her not to attend for safety reasons. After England lost their most recent game to Portugal at Euro 2000, David Beckham was taunted and threatened by British soccer fans. The 'soccer fans' told David that his wife is a whore, that they are going to kill his son Brooklyn, and that they hope Brooklyn dies from cancer. David reacted by giving the taunters the finger. So Victoria will not be attending the next game for safety concerns. Victoria talked about the situation:

"It's hard, it's frightening, but I want to support him. I was at the Portugal match but I was on the other side of the stadium and couldn't hear much of it. I kind of try and ignore it but it is hard for me to go to the games. Everyone does things. If people are saying things like that about your family... but David has a responsibility and he knows that. He's not going out getting drunk every night. All he ever does is play fantastic football and talk about how much he loves his family. That's a good role model. David puts up with a lot. He ran around and tried so hard for 90 minutes and that's the kind of thing that happens. He went over to applaud the crowd, to thank them for coming, and that's the thanks he gets."

J On MelC

Jason Brown told the truth of the relationship between him and Melanie C. He blasted the stories that are constantly being put out that the relationship is fake or a publicity stunt. Jason said:

"These stories really piss me off. We've been seeing each other for three months and it is completely real. Our relationship is not a PR stunt. I would never do anything like that, what's the point? Mel C is my girlfriend. I can tell you she stayed round at my flat last night, and that wasn't a publicity stunt. We had something to eat and watched TV for most of the night. We're both northern and we both have a great sense of humor. When we're alone, she's not Mel C from the Spice Girls, she's just Melanie. She's on the same level as me. I can talk to her about anything. We are just like an ordinary couple. I know we're in the public eye, but that doesn't matter. We're just J and Mel, and that's it. We go out to eat, have a few beers and do things like that when we get the chance. Unfortunately, we don't get to see each other that often, but we try to get some time together. When we do it's great. We have a laugh. People keep saying it's a scam because we were never photographed together. The reason was because we never went out. We'd rather stay in than go out all the time. But when we did go out publicly for the first time, at Madonna's premiere for her movie The Next Best Thing, people were still going on about it being a stunt. It just fucking pisses me off. We're just enjoying ourselves. We've only been dating for three months, so it's all very early days. All I'm saying is we're a couple, and in the past I haven't really wanted to talk about it. I just want to set the record straight."

Every once in a while I goof or overlook something, so here are some corrections: Firstly I pulled the Earl's Court DVD front & back scan as they are fake. I was tired and in a hurry when I posted it so I didn't even take a close enough look at it, lesson learned. Secondly, I threw a rumor warning over the "Boyfriend/Girlfriend Clip" story as that is also very questionable as to it's authenticity. I get sent so much news, and a lot of fake stuff, some blatantly fake. I try my best to filter the real from the fake. I think the scan was one of the first fake things that made it through. What is with all the Spice Faking going on lately?

I put my hands up and admit I put out a few wrong signals, for a while I steamed in there and it was full-on. But now I've pulled back a little bit, I'm not really ready for anything major yet.

Girlfriends: Have your fans ever surprised or shocked you?

Mel C: There's quite a few fans actually that we know here in England by name, and when I go around the world I recognize faces.

Girlfriends: Are you aware that you wind up in some of the queer rumors that happen in the queer community? The raunchy dancing, pinching your bandmates' butts, the dual interpretation that people make of NBTSA. People go as far as to read the pronouns of your songs and say, "She didn't say *him*, she said *they* or *them*. You set off some people's gaydar.

Mel C: That is something that I'm not really aware of. I'm just expressing myself in the only way I know how. I've never used my music to wind anybody up. It's just an expression of me.

Girlfriends: In 25 years do you think it's possible that someone who was once a Spice Girl will come out?

Mel C: As far as I know all the Spice Girls are straight. Two are married or have been married, with babies, and it's something that we have often talked about because we all are friends. Some members of the band have had certain experiences or whatever.. But you know, I'm not really one of those people.

Thanks to Angie Hung.
