The Spice Girls at 25: Here’s the story from A to Z
Released 25 years ago, on 8 July 1996, Wannabe spent seven weeks at number one in the UK and four in the US. In the process, it made five unknown girls – Victoria Caroline Adams, Melanie Janine Brown, Emma Lee Bunton, Melanie Jayne Chisholm and Geraldine Estelle Halliwell – global superstars.
So here’s a story from A to Z of how the band started, rose to fame, fell apart and put themselves back together again. Because which member of our LGBT+ Community does not love the Spice Girls?!?
F is for First impressions
The Spice Girls were the prototypical manufactured band – and when they were first put together, they couldn’t help sizing each other up.
“I thought Emma was a softie, Vicky was a snob and Geri was a real loudmouth,” wrote Mel B in the band’s 1997 book Girl Power.
Emma, Victoria and Mel C all declared Geri a “complete nutter”, recalling: “She had her hair in bunches and was wearing a pink fluffy jumper and saying, ‘Look, look – I’m a duck!'”
Geri, meanwhile, “couldn’t stop staring at Emma – she was really fresh and pretty with a big smile like a doll’s”.
