Sporty Spice Melanie C Pens an Essay on Fame for 'LOVE Magazine'

The former Spice Girl discusses her struggle with being in the public eye.

Singer and former Spice Girl Melanie C has recently penned an essay on fame for LOVE Magazine. As the artist is preparing to release a new album, she reflects on the dramatic change of the entertainment industry with the advent of social media. Two decades after Spice Girls, Melanie C expresses that she is finally “more at peace with the reality of achieving [her] childhood ambition.” When asked if there is any chance that she join the upcoming Spice Girls reunion, the singer firmly replies:

Look, I will be a Spice Girl until I die. But the continuous speculation on whether we will reform to celebrate 20 years of “Wannabe” has been particularly exhausting. Don’t get me wrong – I totally get it. But is it a new rule that bands have to reform? Why can’t we just be remembered for our incredible achievements in the nineties? … Truth be told, earlier this year after several face-to-face meetings with the girls I made the difficult decision not to be part of a proposed reunion with Emma, Geri and Melanie. Victoria had already bowed out understandably with the demands of her fashion label and her rather large family. The hardest part for me was letting people down, the girls, the fans, civilisation?! Unfortunately something didn’t feel quite right and I had to follow my gut.

The feature is also accompanied by an editorial lensed by Thurstan Redding, in which Sporty Spice demonstrates her impressive athletic skills and reveals her barefaced beauty. Browse the gallery above to see it for yourself. You can also head over here to read Melanie C’s essay in full.
