Victoria Comments About Melanie C
This is an excerpt from Victoria's autobiography 'Learning To Fly'. It concerns Melanie C and the third album:

"When we got there (Miami) we found out Mel C wasn't coming....at first we thought it was just that her schedule clashed, but it wasn't long before we realized there was more to it.... It was when we began talking about the third album that I began to sense she wasn't really comfortable. Maybe she thought she didn't need to compromise any more - after she'd had success on her own. But you do have to compromise when you're not just you... ...She may want to be Rocky Spice but it doesn't work like that. She can be as rocky as she wants on her own, but she can't be Rocky Spice. At the end of the day I think being a Spice Girl is a bit like a marriage. Compromise is the central part of it. You get the 'for better' and the 'for worse'. But even though you may have your disagreements, the truth is that you're in for the long haul. And my own feeling is that in time Melanie C will realize that she can do both. Like marriages that go through bad patches you just have to work your way through it."

Thanks Orlando for typing this up.

Oh no! Not anther marriage analogy...

When Victoria And David First Had Sex
-= Rumor Warning =-

Several papers are reporting that Victoria reveals in her upcoming autobiography that she and David first had sex the night after the Spice Girls met Prince Charles. This was the May 1997 Prince's Trust concert in Manchester. It was at the Midland Hotel, and David snuck by the hotel at 2:00 am. The next day, Melanie C came by knocking on the door to borrow something, and Victoria panicked and pretended she was in the bath, because she didn't want anybody to know that David was sprawled naked on her bed!

-= Rumor Warning =-

Yummy! A naked David... :-)

Emma On Coming To Australia For Rumba
Regarding yesterday's announcement that Emma will be heading to Australia for the Rumba festival, she says:
"I'm really excited, I can't wait to get out there and see my fans. The Spice Girls came to Australia once but it was very quick and we didn't tour, so I'm looking forward to it."
With Geri Halliwell also set to appear at Rumba, Emma says:
"We've seen each other a bit recently and everything's cool."
For more info, refer to the story below.

Emma To Do The Rumba
Emma will be heading to Australia in November to appear at Rumba, an 8 hour music festival that features a celebrity fashion parade, music and fashion retail outlets, extreme sports displays, an autograph stage, carnival rides, food stalls, an interactive army display, arcade games, a cyber café, and more.

The Rumba festival is being held in Melbourne on Saturday 17 November at Colonial Stadium, and in Sydney on Saturday November 24 at Stadium Australia.

Tickets go on sale from Ticketmaster7 outlets from 9am next Friday (14 September) for the Melbourne Rumba, with Sydney Rumba tickets available to purchase from Ticketek outlets this coming Thursday (13 September) at 9am. Alternatively those wishing to go to the Sydney Rumba, can just click here while those wishing to head to the Melbourne Rumba can clickity-click right here.

Tickets for the Melbourne Rumba will cost $84 (plus booking fees) for general admission tickets with access to the grassed areas, and $73 (plus fees) for reserved seating in the stands. Ticket prices for the Sydney Rumba are unknown by me at this point, so it's probably best to contact Ticketek for prices.

Victoria: Geri Caused Eating Disorder
Mrs Beckham admitted that she had a eating disorder, blaming it on Geri. In her biography she reveals that while the girls lived in their house in Maidenhead, they got told to lose some weight. Geri told Victoria and Melanie C to get up early and go running, as well as introducing them to hunger-blocking milk-shakes. Posh went obsessive with the idea of having to lose weight, measuring her butt daily.

Unconditional Love.. Posh Hit Becks
Victoria found out that David has been kissing another woman - and punched him for that. In her book Learning To Fly, she reveals:
"In walked David that night after the match and I went straight up to him and just swung at him, punched him in the face. And I hit him so hard I cut the inside of his mouth. And even then, with blood dripping down his cheek, I felt angry and hurt."

--Monday, September 3, 2001 at 7.25pm GMT - [Schnickers]
Posh Can Sing..!
After being attacked for miming at Radio 1's "One Big Sunday", Victoria defended herself saying that she actually can sing.
"Singing live is something that I will do and is something that I feel I have to do to prove to everybody I can sing.

At a lot of these live shows, 80% of people are actually miming ... you don't get any soundcheck. I can really sing and I can write good songs ... I am very happy with that."

hahaha, that was a good one. Damn, I could have used the "I will sing live"-statement for the next april fools joke.. :)

Track-By-Track of Victoria's Album
From The Sun:

Victoria: "It was the last track I recorded and I didn't write this one but the record company loved it so much they wanted it on the album."
Bizarre verdict: A strange choice for the first single release - there are much better songs on this album.

Victoria: "This is one of my favourites on the record - it's got a classic structure with a big chorus."
Bizarre verdict: Great pop song that will go down well with kids.

Victoria: "This is my absolute favourite on the album. I think it sums me and David up perfectly. One of the lines in the song is about sipping champagne out of paper cups - and that's what I do. We're both just like that."
Bizarre verdict: A slow one which is not so catchy but one for the romantics out there.

Victoria: "I wrote and recorded this in London. It's basically got a different angle to it. I'm singing about a relationship that my friend is having, it's not about me."
Bizarre verdict: A funky, hip tune that reflects the music scene in the UK at the moment.

Victoria: "I wrote this song with Dane Bowers on the train on the way back from Brighton. We literally wrote the lyrics on the backs of our train tickets. It isn't autobiographical, it's about a girl telling her friend not to trust her man because he is cheating on her. It's something that I think a lot of people can relate to."
Bizarre verdict: It has a two-step feel to it and a lot of attitude.

Victoria: "This is a great pop song, very catchy, quite light and it goes along like a Janet Jackson track. I did this one in Stockholm."
Bizarre verdict: The synth sounds in this make it sound pure pop. Good single potential.

7. I.O.U.
Victoria: "This song is all about David. I just felt that I wouldn't be where I am today without him and this track is dedicated to him. Like the song says, I owe him everything. I would be nothing without him."
Bizarre verdict: Great ballad.

Victoria: "Everyone thinks they know me but they don't. This isn't Posh 'n' Becks, this isn't the Spice Girls, this is Victoria Beckham, what do you think? That's what I'm saying here."
Bizarre verdict: One of the best tracks on the album. Its funky, cool and catchy. Could be a chart hit.

Victoria: "This is quite a cool dancey track. When I went to the recording studios in LA I told the guys I was working with that while I wanted a big American sound, I also wanted to make a pop record."
Bizarre verdict: This is the track that leaked out early on to the internet. Will do well as a single.

Victoria: "I think this is a great blend of American R&B with British pop. It's exactly the type of sound I wanted to create and I think my vocals really come through on this track."
Bizarre verdict: Without a doubt the best track on the album. It's cool, dancey and very much of today, with the same vocal sound Victoria had on the Truesteppers track. Should have been the first single released from the album.

Victoria: "This is a lovely ballad - another one I wrote for David. It's all about us and our relationship."
Bizarre verdict: This would make a perfect Christmas single, it's spine-tingling and very romantic.


Victoria: "This song is all about Brooklyn, about how he makes me feel and how I see lots of me in him. He was with me the whole time while I was recording the album and his giggles are on the beginning of the track."
Bizarre verdict: Could make another single release - but don't expect to see Brooklyn in the video!

Thanks --J--.
