Forget the One Direction split... the SPICE GIRLS could be reuniting soon!
It’s been a sad day in pop music after Zayn Malik walked out of One Direction. In fact, many people have compared his departure from the band to Geri Halliwell’s sudden exit from the Spice Girls during their 1998 world tour. Luckily for Spice Girls fans, however, there’s reason to be happy. (One Direction fans, sorry to rub this in while you continue to mourn).
With the Spice Girls’ 20th anniversary coming up in 2016, it has been widely speculated that the Girls will get back together for a project or tour to celebrate. Especially after their 2007/8 reunion tour was cut short due to scheduling conflicts. And now Baby Spice Emma Bunton has given fans new hope! When asked about the Spice Girls' 20th anniversary during a recent interview, Emma revealed: "I was with Geri (Halliwell) and Mel B just recently, we love each other and we love performing together. It's just when the timing is right because we all have our own careers now and we have families - it's just about getting five schedules together and that's all it is." There’s actual hope!
Two months ago Spice Girls fans were also in a frenzy over 4 unreleased Spice Girls songs that leaked online. And now Emma has confirmed there are loads more where that came from! "There's lots of Spice Girls songs that have never been released. We recorded lots and lots and lots of songs," she added.
It seems it’s not such a dark day in pop music after all!
