    New Interesting Interview With Victoria
    Click here to read an interesting interview with Victoria Beckham from The Herald Sun in Australia. Victoria is very serious and perhaps a bit mad in this interview.

    Thanks Luke Peterson.

    Notice how she doesn't exactly say 'no' to the 'have you?' question.

    No! To Greatest Hits
    -= Rumor Warning =-

    The Mirror (*cough*) reports, that the Spice Girls refuse to release a greatest hits album since they don't want to spend anytime anymore with each other, although "a close source" says they really need the money, claiming that "the only one with any financial security is Victoria - and that's only because she's married to a very rich husband."

    -= Rumor Warning =-

    Better don't believe this! It's the Mirror again, I don't know how often they already split up according to them.

    Sun Rumors False, Says Spice Head Office
    www.spicenews.com has been informed by the Spice Girls head office (management team) that the 'Sun' stories about Posh dumping Nancy as her manager in a fit of rage are false and that it's crap made up by the tabloids again. The rumors about a Spice split (yawn, yet again) are also false. Coincidentally, fellow Spice fan Tamir was told by the head office that Victoria is looking for new management, but that things are well and amicable between Nancy and Victoria. We phoned the head office to verify this and this is correct. This means that although Nancy is currently looking after Victoria, Victoria is looking for a manager who will have time to solely devote to her solo work. However, the two are still good friends and the story about Victoria 'letting it rip' to Nancy are completely false.

    We've also been told that it's still up in the air as to whether or not Melanie's duet of 'Bohemiam Rhapsody' with Russell Watson will be on Russell's upcoming album 'Encore' or not. They say they are still in talks about it.

    With Russell's album coming up so soon, I'm under the impression that it's been removed from his album. I'm also not surprised to hear that the Sun stories are false.

    Spice Girls Are History?
    -= Rumor Warning =-

    UK newspaper, The Sun reports that the Spice Girls are over, with sources claiming the squabbling has gotten so bad that they can't even meet as a group where they can release an official statement confirming the break-up.

    An 'insider' says:

    "The girls haven't actually sat down together and decided the band is over because some of them are not on speaking terms with the others. But with four bickering stars and no one manager to keep them together, there is no chance of them carrying on. They could have made up to 100million from a tour and a new album but instead they have let personalities get in the way. There is still a Spice Girl company but that's just a technicality."

    -= Rumor Warning =-

    Well, what more to say? I say don't trust it until there is any official statements of the sort from the Spice Camp.

    Victoria Sacks Her Manager
    -= Rumor Warning =-

    Mrs Beckham sacked her manager Nancy Phillips after her first single from her solo-album flopped. She blames it on Nancy's bad choice of the track and wrong promotion.

    Same as below, don't believe everything!

    Mel B: Victoria Is A Cow
    -= Rumor Warning =-

    Melanie B called Victoria a cow after she felt that Victoria didn't support Melanie's solo-carrer enough like the other girls did. She said Victoria was "unsympathetic" when Melanie was dropped as a solo-artist by Virgin. Melanie was also jealous that Victoria got better treatment from the Spice team, a "close source" said both haven't talked to each other for three months now.

    Worldpop even tops this, saying Melanie quit the Spice Girls after the huge row with Victoria..

    -= Rumor Warning =-

    Alright, at first I didn't want to post this at all, it sounds like one of the stupidest tabloid-reports ever. I do NOT believe all this and the conclusion that Mel B leaves the Spice Girls because of that is just pure nonsense! DON'T BELIEVE THE TABLOIDS! They soo often make up stuff, it's not even worth bothering, trust me. For all of those who still think "ooh, there must be some truth behind it", there is NOT, maybe you should read "Spiced Up" by Muff Fitzgerald (order on amazon.co.uk) to see what tabloids are really like and you'll understand :) So we should all calm down now and maybe wait for an official response, as long as you don't hear it from Virgin/The Girls themselves or read it here, don't believe it! :)

    Melanie C Death Threats
    Melanie had to call Scotland Yard recently after she recieved fanatic hate mail for over a year now. She even got a cassette that said "This is the day we are both going to die." Police has been watching her 24/7, but now a man has been arrested in the Netherlands who is supposed to be the person threatening Melanie. A Scotland Yard spokesman confirmed this, adding: "He remains in custody in connection with an incident involving a woman from the Camden Borough area."

    Poor Melanie, I hope everything works out fine!!! :(

    I don't know if this means her hair is all black again, or if the blonde highlights just happen to be a bit washed out. But the most important news is that it's for cancer, a disease Melanie is very close to.
