Lefteye & Melanie C To Duet Again?
Lisa "Lefteye" Lopes of US R&B group 'TLC', wants to record another duet with Melanie C, after the success of their last collaboration - 'Never Be The Same Again'.

She says:

"I would dearly love to hook-up with Mel C again. We've spoken about it and she's really keen on the idea too. The Spice Girls were massive in America, but it would be nice for Mel to have a hit of her own there. Maybe this will be the one."

Victoria Comments
-= Rumor Warning =-

British tabloid News of the World is reporting that Victoria may say some pretty damning things in her upcoming autobiography 'Learning To Fly'. This includes comments on Geri such as:

"I can't stand Geri. I haven't seen her since a party we were both at in the south of France a couple of years ago and I'm pleased about that fact. She is one of the most disloyal people I've ever known. When she walked out of the Spice Girls, she almost split up an entire band with her selfish behaviour."

Victoria also apparently wanted David to sign with a London club instead of re-signing with Manchester United in 1998, as she felt removed from her friends and her family.

Victoria Not Being Invited To Reunion?
-= Rumor Warning =-

According to UK newspaper The Mirror, there is to be a reunion next month with all Spice Girls (sorry, Geri isn't included), so that they can catch up on gossip. That is a reunion with all Spices, minus Victoria.

The reason?

According to The Mirror, it's because of Mel B who is co-ordinating the event, supposedly she and Victoria are not on speaking terms. The reasons are unknown as to why but it is presumed it is because of the different paths their solo careers have taken.

A 'source' is quoted as saying:

"A rift has grown between Mel B and Victoria which is really serious. It is such a shame because the four of them always got on so well."

It's A Family Affair
Brooklyn makes a cameo appearance on Victoria Beckham's debut album. Says Victoria:

"He loves 'Every Part Of Me' which is on the album and he does feature a little tiny bit at the beginning. It's just like background noises, he's laughing and giggling. He was on the track by accident and then I played it back and thought it sounded cute, so I decided to leave him on."

'Solo Spice', a new one hour documentary by the same people who made last years' 'Girls On Film', will be shown on Channel 4 on Friday 31st August at 6:00 pm.

On the same day, on BBC1, they will be showing 'There's Only One David Beckham' which the Radio Times reckons has a contribution from Victoria. On ITV, they will be showing 'Rich And Famous' which has an interview with Victoria eating pie and mash.

Victoria Has Had A Boob Job, Says Friend
-= Rumor Warning =-

A 'friend' has told UK newspaper, the Sunday People that the rumours of Victoria having not only one, but two boob jobs are in fact true.

The 'friend' said:

"Victoria could no longer deny the truth. It was pretty obvious to everyone that her boobs are bigger than before. She said she was happy with her first boob job. But then after she lost a bit of weight, her breasts changed shape and didn't look as perky as they had before. So she decided to have another op to get the shape back. They are slightly bigger than before and they stick out much more."

The 'friend' says that what helped make Victoria spill the beans was during a recent magazine photo shoot.

"When she lay down her boobs didn't move and it was obvious something had been done, so someone asked her if she'd had a boob job. It didn't help that at the moment Victoria is very thin because she wants to look good to launch her solo album. So her bigger boobs are even more noticeable. She said she had it done fairly recently, although shewouldn't say exactly when and had wanted to keep it a secret.

Victoria is said to have had her first boob job in September 1999 and her second boob op, around April of this year.

The 'friend' also revealed that when Victoria wants to make Brooklyn laugh, she raises up her skirt and flashes her knickers. It has apparently worked without fail.

Victoria On Britney, David, Geri, And Brooklyn
In an upcoming interview with Smash Hits, Victoria says that she will have another baby if her music career does not take off:
If it's a success I'll carry on, if not I'll have another baby. I'd love a girl. But we'll see how the single goes.

Commenting on her looks and David, she says:
I did worry a lot about my body image. Even now I look in the mirror and hate the way I look. David is the same. I look at him and say, 'But you're gorgeous, how can you be self-conscious?' But he is. We all have insecurities. When I first met David he wasn't what he is now. He was the same person, but he wasn't a pin-up. To me he's just David. I doubt he wakes up next to me and thinks he is lying next to one of the sexiest women in the world, cos when I wake up I look shocking. My hair sticks out in all directions.

On Britney Spears, Victoria says:
She's amazing. I think she looks great. We were like two crazed fans when we met. I had my camera and she had brought hers and we were both awestruck. I went, 'Oh my God, it's Britney Spears', and she went, 'Oh my God, it's Posh Spice', and we took pictures of each other.

On Geri, she says:
We have nothing in common. I don't speak to Geri at all any more. She is doing her thing and I'm doing my thing. I haven't seen her in the flesh in a long time.

On Brooklyn:
Oh no, he's so-o-o-o naughty. It's usually when we're in a shop, so it's really embarrassing. I've got white carpets and he has been sick all over them. He rides his scooter into my curtains too. I'm used to sick and poo.

Victoria Is Fan Of Belfast DJ
From the Belfast Telegraph:

Victoria Beckham has asked Belfast DJ Joe Ferguson to introduce her on stage at an outdoor gig in Liverpool later this month. "She remembered me from the last time I interviewed her and sang to her," said Joe, who left Belfast for Liverpool last year. "I couldn't believe it. I asked her for her home phone number to call her back just to make sure it was her, and it was. There's me sitting have a pint in a pub and Victoria Beckham calls me up. She said she listens to my programme every morning and was keen to get me to introduce her new song on stage, so of course I agreed."

Posh Places Ban On Groovejet II
-= Rumor Warning =-

From Dominic Mohan's 'bizarre' column in The Sun:

Posh Spice has blocked a remix of the single that wrecked her chances of topping the charts last year.

Truesteppers' revamped version of Spiller's 'Groovejet', mixed with Victoria Beckham's vocals from 'Out Of Your Mind' was due out September 17 - the same day as Posh's own single, 'Not Such An Innocent Girl'.

But lawyers from her record label Virgin banned it. So now Truesteppers are asking rival Spice Girl Geri Halliwell to copy Posh's vocal for the single! The row erupted when furious Posh heard about Truesteppers' plan to feature her voice on their new release.

She immediately got Virgin to fire off a letter to the BMG record company, who were planning to release the track. BMG owned the rights to her vocals but Victoria had retained the right to veto any remixes.

She was in a dressing room next to mine a couple of days ago and we had a little chat and it was really nice.

Press Conference And Mel C Single Rumors False
There have been rumors all over the Internet that the Spice Girls will be holding a press conference to discuss future plans and rumors that Melanie C has a new single called 'Day Light in your Eyes' that was played to a fan over the phone. In attempts to clear up these rumors, spicenews.com phoned up the official Spice Girls head office in London. People in the office say they there is no such press conference planned and that they have not heard of such a new Melanie C single. Furthermore, they say that the fan club would not phone up a fan and play an unreleased song over the Internet.

I didn't think the fan club would get a hold of a new Melanie C single before the official office does anyways. It should be noted that a fan was phoned by the fan club regarding prizes offered, but no new Mel C single was played over the phone, as far as the head office is aware. Thank you to the office for clearing this up for us.

Emma was recently on Capital FM's Doctor Fox. Here's a few things that she said:

She loves REAL music like (the use of) guitar, rather than euro beats and dance although she likes dancing to it. "Scream If You Want To Go Faster" is her favorite Geri song. Geri is really friendly when they meet and they always hug, etc... the interview in the Mail magazine was exaggerated (apparently). She likes O-Town, OPM, Jennifer Lopez, and Missy Elliot at the moment, but didnt seem that keen on The Honeyz, even though she didnt say anything much regarding this.

I know the story is pretty pointless but I like it how Victoria seems to stay on the ground. I can certainly imagine her drinking a typical girls-night-out drink in Beckingham Palace ;-)

To make it even worse, BMG said that they are "hoping to release on the same week as her new single" which means Victoria would battle herself in the UK-charts.

Melanie C Voiceover Reminder
A reminder to all spicenews readers to tune into BBC1 today on August 1st to watch a documentary by Chris Terrill. It focuses on the lives of a dozen young people under 30 and is intercut with poetry and lyrics read by Melanie C. Below are quotes by Melanie on why she decided to contribute:

"I saw Chris Terrill's film 'Through the Eyes of the Old',and it really opened my eyes to the need for better communication between the generations. 'Through the Eyes of the Young' was something I could really relate to and wanted to be involved in.

I think it is so hard being young. When you're young, you've got so many expectations of life and you feel that people have so many expectations of you. That can be an enormous pressure. And then if you fulfill those expectations, there's a different kind of pressure. The Spice Girls shot to superstardom in a very short time. We've always been an example for young people out there who don't really have anything but dreams, but when you've had success at a very young age your priorities change.

I'm 27 now and I've come to realise that there are other things in life that are just as valuble as wealth and fame. 'Through the eyes of the Young' celebrates so many different ways of being successful and I think that is really important".

Take Her Songs Away
Emma told worldpop that she is writing songs for other artists, popular as well as unknown. She said:
"I can't give you any names yet but some acts have asked me if they can have some of the tracks I didn't put on my album. There are some people that you probably know and also some new artists that are coming up. It's a very strange feeling knowing that a song that you've written might go to another band that's up there doing it.

I'd love to manage a band or a solo artist and more songwriting for other people is something I'm very interested in. I was asked about two weeks ago about my extra tracks. They said 'There's a track that didn't go on your album and such and such would like it,' and I was just like, 'Wow, that's amazing!'

At first I was a bit wary. There is one track they wanted and I was like, No, that's mine, I can't give that away! But I wrote about 40 songs for my album so there are a couple in there that are maybe not so me."
