Before picking up her daughter Bluebell from school, Geri Halliwell — that’s Ginger Spice, for those of you not aware of pop culture in the ’90s — checked to make sure her boob was where it belonged. [London, 6/30/10] Keep reading »
“Do you know what, actually I always refer to Victoria… You’d get this very black or white feeling, either absolute adoration or not. She knows that, she’s like Marmite… You either love her or you hate her.”

So tell me whatcha want, whatcha really, really want … it’s a Spice Girls musical, isn’t it?
No? Well, too bad, you’re getting one anyway: theater producer Judy Craymer, who brought “Mamma Mia!” to the stage, has announced she’s creating a Spice Girls musical called “Viva Forever.” The show will include 14 Spice Girls hits and will launch in London on November 5 of this year. Crayer said the story arc in the Spice Girls musical will be fictionalized, but will be a celebration of the pop stars’ “sisterhood.”
Ummm, but didn’t they break up? Keep reading »
Ooooh Geri Halliwell, you are in trouble with us! Our third fave Spice Girl (following Posh and Baby, of course) gets dropped from our speed dial for this nugget of space-case wisdom in the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper.
“…feminism is bra-burning lesbianism…It’s very unglamorous.”
What a twat. How could she forget that her own group, the Spice Girls, was at the forefront of the third-wave feminist movement? “If You Wanna Be My Lover” was all about teaching men that “if you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends.” If that’s not total feminist girl power, then give us a broom and we’ll start sweeping! Still, Halliwell believes that in order to get with the f-word, it should be “rebranded” and “celebrate a woman’s femininity and softness.” We totally agree! Being strong and tough and resilient and brassy is, like, totally gross. We don’t want people to think were dykes, right? Anyway, Ginger’s look circa 1996 really sums up what modern day feminism needs for it’s makeover. The world’s trashiest drag queen is the future “glamorous” face of feminism — sign us up!
