The Spice Girls announced that they are re-forming for an 11-city world tour this winter. To be honest, I’m not really certain how I feel about it. On the one hand the jaded Grrrbear is waving my paw at it and saying “Bah!” – viewing the whole thing as an exercise in over-hyped mediocrity and a pathetic money-grab.
But the kinder, gentler Grrrbear is kind of glad, because let’s face it – the Spice Girls are a big part of pop culture history, and woe to the society that fails to preserve or remember its history, right? I mean, who doesn’t want to hear a new, live version of “If You Wanna Be My Lover” on the radio every 10 minutes again? Besides, I kind of think that Sporty and Baby Spice* could probably use the work since they didn’t get to marry a soccer star or get child support from Eddie Murphy. And Ginger Spice** seems do be doing all right considering she can afford hire actual giants as personal trainers.
If that guy were my trainer I’d be concerned he’d try to eat me If my form was wrong. But, I suppose that would be pretty motivating…
* Or should it be “Spices”?
** Come to think of it, isn’t this nickname kind of cruel considering she was the redhead?
