It’s no secret that VB was the least keen of all the Spice Girls to get involved with the reunion and it is believed that it was only husband David’s strong links with the London Olympics team that persuaded her to go with the reunion plan.

These days she is not only there for her young family, which now includes super cute 2-year old daughter Harper, but is also in charge of an ever-growing fashion empire. Read the rest of this entry »

Victoria Beckham On Fashion and The Spice Girls – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 29 January 2013

Victoria Beckham looking very slim in shorts in Elle magazineVictoria Beckham On Fashion, The Spice Girls and Husband David – the 38-year old fashion designer has been talking to Elle about her move back to the UK, her fashion business, The Spice Girls and husband David and their children.

She has been talking primarily about how she believes all of her success is down to her very strong work ethic saying: “I don’t have to work, I need to work. All these people [fellow fashion designers], they’ve not just been given anything. They’ve worked hard. And I’ve never been given anything either. But I have a good work ethic; David has an incredible work ethic. I want my kids to have a good work ethic. I believe you can achieve anything if you work hard enough to get it.”

It is thought that the success of Victoria’s fashion business is the reason behind the Beckham clan deciding to move back to the UK from their base in LA. Victoria’s business is based in Battersea, London and she has talked before about how her need to micro-manage the business meant that with the time difference she ended up taking Skype business calls through the night. Add in a growing young family and The Spice Girls reunion plans last year and it explains why she often looked exhausted.

‘I’m basically just like any woman who’s working and has lots of children – it’s tough.

It seems that despite the tremendous growth in her fashion business Victoria still can’t hand over much of the tasks to anyone else as she has admitted to a problem with delegating business decisions.”I can’t hand over. But I’m trying to do that more. It’s hard because I have such a specific vision,” she says.

In the March issue of Elle Victoria reveals that she is lacking in confidence but her success in the fashion world has made her more confident than she was when she was in The Spice Girls. “When I was on stage with the Spice Girls, I thought people were there to see the other four and not me.’

You can read the full interview in the March issue of Elle which is on sale from tomorrow (30 January).

Spice Girl’s Musical Viva Forever, Prince Azim of Brunei’s 30th Birthday Party

Spice Girls Musical Viva Forever – all 5 Spice Girls have joined up for the first time since 2008 to launch the new West End musical based on their hit songs.

Victoria Beckham, Melanie Brown, Geri Halliwell, Emma Bunton and Melanie Chisholm all joined up at the St Pancras Renaissance Hotel to launch the new show today. The hotel is of special interest to Spice Girls fans as it was featured in the video for their debut single Wannabe with the girls being seen running all round the staircases and public rooms. The video was famous for two things: Mel C did a very acrobatic back handspring on a table and the video got banned in a number of countries in Asia that were not happy that Mel B’s stiff nipples could clearly be seen through her thin green top. The group later commented that it was very cold when they were filming.

The Spices were joined at today’s launch by producer Judy Craymer, who was the force behind hit musical Mamma Mia, and Jennifer Saunders who wrote the show but is better known here as Edina from Ab Fab and one half of comedy duo French & Saunders.

In today’s shot of the girls you have a further idea of how life has changed for them with two of the girls wearing  outfits they helped design. Geri was wearing a short pink dress from her Geri at Next collection and Posh was wearing surprise, surprise something from the latest VB collection, a buttoned up military style dress.

Viva Forever will tell the story of a young girl and her friends who find overnight success and it features many of the group’s 90’s hits including Wannabe, Two Become One and Spice Up Your Life. The musical is also going to show how such sudden success impacts on them personally and in their relationships with their friends and families.

All the girls took to Twitter this morning to help publicise the show. They are said to be all getting involved with auditions for the main roles in the musical and will also all be present at the official opening night at the Piccadilly Theatre on 11 December.

Previews for the show begin on 27 November.

Prince Azim of Brunei’s 30th Birthday Party – the man who is 3rd in line to the throne of Brunei seems to have as much of a thing for older women as Harry Styles.

As well as a good sense of humour one thing sure to get a lady’s attention is a pot load of money and it seems that Prince Azim is quite happy to splash the cash to impress a lady.

His guest list for the evening, which was held at the Dorchester Hotel in London (owned by his father the Sultan), was heavy on attractive older women and then almost as heavy on attractive younger women. There appeared to be precious few men who received one of his golden party invitations.

From the world of film there was Raquel Welch, who wore a very low-cut black top showing a black bra and masses of cleavage, and looked nothing like her 71-years. Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei was also invited as was the Baywatch/Barb Wire star Pamela Anderson who seemed to be one of the Prince’s favourites on the evening from the amount of time he spent with her. Another guest from the world of movies was Network and Chinatown star Faye Dunaway, also 71 but wearing a much more modest outfit than Raquel’s.

From the music world guests included Burt Bacharach favourite Dionne Warwick who was the only star on the evening to do any work as she treated guests to a very exclusive performance. Another singer to be invited was Mariah Carey who lived up to her high-demanding reputation by apparently being flown in and out of London especially for the party on a private jet organised by the Prince. She is obviously one of Prince Azim’s favourite ladies as she was believed on a different occasion to have received a gift of diamonds from him worth around $6m.

Attractive older film stars and singers really only leaves you with attractive older models to invite so guess what Jerry Hall was on the guest list. She also arrived with daughter Lizzie Jagger who must have spoilt the boy/girl ratio by bringing along boyfriend Evgeny Lebedev. One of the very few men invited to the bash was Glee star Matthew Morrison who came along with his stunning model girlfriend Renee Puente.

Prince Azim is famed for his extravagant parties with his most famous before last night’s being his 2009 do for his 27th birthday. Guests at this party included Faye Dunaway and Mariah Carey from last night’s list as well as Janet Jackson, Sophia Loren, Ursula Andress and Joan Collins. This party, which was held at luxury country house Stapleford Park was dubbed at the time “the party of the year.” The cost of the whole event can be measured by the fact that the bill for flowers alone exceeded £70k.

When he is not enjoying himself in the company of busty, famous older ladies he does think of others less fortunate than him (nearly everyone!). He spends much of his time getting involved with charity work especially for charities for the disabled. He has helped Naomi Campbell raise money for Fashion for Relief as well as being one of the patrons of the UK’s Make A Wish Foundation, a charity helping to make dreams come true for young children living with life-threatening conditions.

The Ting Tings, Spice Girls Reunion – What’s Hot and What’s Trending 29 January 2012

The Ting Tings – the duo are urging their record label to rush release their second album after copies have been leaked online this week.

The album appeared on a number of file sharing sites and some of the group’s fans then tweeted how much they loved the music. Jules de Martino posted in response: “Lot’s of people getting a listen of our new record… Miraculously?”

This second album “Sounds From Nowheresville” is a follow-up to the duo’s Number 1 debut “We Started Nothing.” It was originally set to be released on 27 February but the duo are begging their record label Columbia to release it now before most of their fans get hold of a copy for free.

The other member of the duo, Katie White, said of the album: “We’re just our own thing – we’re neither ‘indie-cool’ nor mainstream pop, and we’ve never been part of a scene. ‘Sounds From Nowheresville’ is a perfect title for the new album.”

The notorious 2nd album has proved to be just as hard work for the Ting Tings as many other groups in the past with their first attempt, an album called Kunst, being shelved when de Martino and White were unhappy with the results. They said of this aborted album: “I think people would rather we make an album that we’re happy with, so we just said ‘Stop!'”

Although they have had great success with their albums and singles it is as live performers that the duo have attracted the biggest number of fans. Back in 2008 they won Best Festival Pop Act, Best Newcomer and Anthem of the Summer in the UK Festival Awards.

Spice Girls Reunion – it sounds like there may be a chance of seeing the original girl-power group at a special concert event to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee this summer.

The first clue to the possible reunion was given by Mel B when she was asked about a possible Spice Girls performance at this year’s Olympics. She said: “Ooh, I think the Queen’s Jubilee concert is the event I’d be looking at more closely for that to happen.” She then quickly tried to change the subject saying that she would be in a lot of trouble for her off the cuff comment.

It appears that while Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Halliwell are up for it that it is Victoria Beckham who may prove to be the stumbling block to any Spice Girls reunion this year. She is saying that her fast growing fashion business and family commitments are preventing her from having time to fit in the concert.

Although she has said through the usual “source close to” that she has no time for the event we should remember that the Beckhams are friends with Prince William and Kate and they may well provide some gentle persuasion for Victoria to perform at the Royal event this summer.

The concert is set for 04 June (the Queen’s Official Birthday) and is being organised by Take That and X Factor man Gary Barlow. The concert is sure to be a hugely popular event and tickets will be available to the public in a special ballot. If you are not successful in the ballot then fear not as the event is being televised by the BBC.
