God, I hope this doesn't hurt their chances of them doing the next Superbowl Halftime show!!!

Well, Scary and Baby look fine in that pic. Hope the rest do as well, though Posh usually looks malnourished these days.

Well if you don't like that subby, then tell me what you want what you really really want.

Baby Spice is better than fine - she's fi-innnnne.

Subby, they were never relevant. Just annoying enough to get noticed.
 
2012-07-21 09:21:48 AM  
The Spice Girls aren't like ABBA or Duran Duran where people were too cool to like them, but later realised that actually, there was a lot to be said for them. They're more in the league of the Bay City Rollers or David Cassidy.
 
2012-07-21 09:22:28 AM  
Cool, if it were the '90s means there are industrial clubs in Montreal. YES!
 
2012-07-21 09:30:12 AM  
Absolutely perfect, without actually being any good.
 
2012-07-21 09:32:18 AM  
It can't be any worse than whatever the hell that was that Canada did for their opening ceremony.

I don't think they're old enough yet.

Will Talent Spice be making an appearance with the group?
 
2012-07-21 09:48:29 AM  
Mel C solo stuff is actually pretty decent.
 
2012-07-21 09:53:51 AM  
They're performing with the Who, or what's left of them? Not the most relevant band, either.
 
2012-07-21 10:11:05 AM  
I am not convinced these are the same person

I was dumb enough to buy the playboy issue with Geri in it. What a waste of time, money and nudity. That was the first time I was impacted by playboy's decision to turn women into paintings with no genitals and no resemblance to life whatsoever. :( She could have attended that photoshoot wearing a burkha, and they would have produced the same bland, blurred photos.

As for Emma, I remember when she was 'the fat one'. I always liked her, too. But it wasn't as cool to prefer her, as it was to prefer Ginger or Posh. I remember in the movie, they made her the True Believer who actually bought that the Spice Girls was a real girl group with real bonds to one another who could change the world with love. I guess that means she's the Ginger character in real life. But Emma was built like a woman. Sigh.

/Melanie C was always gorgeous
//she got 'background dancer to Fergie'd, though
///Melanie B had better style than Posh, but she's a ho

Here on Fark, anyone who uses the term "relevant" when referring to entertainers doesn't seem to know what that word actually means.


/yes, that was a horrible sentence

WTF dude? That movie was meant for pre-teen girls.

That is shiat you don't admit to if you are a grown man. Gonna need a screencap of this.

I'll never forget the night I was watching MTV and then all of a sudden "Wannabe" by the Spice Girls premiered.

After it was over I was staring at my TV with mouth agape... stunned... thinking "WTF is happening to MTV?"

The rest of my memories of that time faded into a cesspool of Carson Daly and screaming little girls on TRL.

Better.
 
2012-07-21 10:47:35 AM  
For some reason this news seems perfectly in line with what I would imagine a British Summer Olympics in 2012 to be.

I remember on their 2008 tour, they out TSO that same year in ticket revenue. But their tickets averaged $120 while TSO's tickets averaged $45. When it came to actual number of tickets sold, TSO sold more than twice as many tickets.

So you don't agree that the Spice Girls were popular in the 90s? That's a weird revision.
 
2012-07-21 11:10:56 AM  
Ha. Spice World is on the teevee right now.

Nah, man, post-man stealing LeeAnn Rimes is Falcor. Posh is Porky (or Petunia) Pig. She's so afraid of gaining weight, but that nose on her doesn't lie...

It's a cute movie, completely unoffensive, just like 'Hard Day's Night'. It's not completely boring, it's not dark, it has touches of humor, and it's a nice time capsule of a slice of the 90s. And the chicks are hot. And I liked the 'Spice World' video.

Everybody had their favorite Spice Girl. Who was yours?

The Spice Girls are playing? Yes, this will definitely be the bum-sexiest Olympics ever.

They can't get a relevant British band to perform? I am sure the Arctic Monkeys would have loved to do it

Initially it was Ginger, but it changed to Baby after they broke up.

5 old women pretending to sing the songs that they pretended to sing in the 90s.

i would take this announcement to mean Olympic officials are definitely anticipating terrurisms.
 
2012-07-21 09:34:47 PM  
I guess they want to make extra sure that everyone leaves when the Olympics are over.
 
2012-07-21 09:55:19 PM  
I used to be a Posh guy all the way, but she's really aged badly, I'm sorry to say.

The rest of them still look pretty damn good.

/Emma B, please.
