Spice Girls fans everywhere will be disappointed to learn that Victoria Beckham has shot down the possibility of another reunion for the famous British girl group in the future. The Spice Girls —Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, Victoria Beckham, and Emma Bunton — were made famous in 1996 with their debut single "Wannabe." The success was quickly followed up with the singles "Say You'll Be There" and "2 Become 1," and before long it was clear the group was making pop history.
The group's message of girl power struck a chord with fans all over the globe, which is why their second album and movie of the same title, Spice World, were both wildly successful. In 2000 the group released its last album, Forever, before deciding to disband and go their separate ways.
Fans were thrilled when the women announced that they would be embarking on a world tour in 2008, which sold out worldwide. Even more exciting, Scary, Baby, Sporty, Ginger, and Posh got back together one last time for a surprise performance at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics in 2012. With two huge reunions under their belts it wouldn't be surprising if the Spice Girls decided to do it again, but according to Beckham, that just isn't going to happen.
"I won't ever do it again," Beckham said in the latest issue of Vanity Fair Italy and Spain. "Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor. I was so proud to do it, proud to be British. That was a perfect time to say, 'That's great. Thank you to everybody, but no more.' Sometimes you've got to know when it's time to leave the party." Of course, Beckham has other projects to occupy her time. In 2006 she launched a self-titled fashion line to massive success.
Even though there isn't a Spice Girls reunion in the future the woman formerly known as Posh Spice credits the group for her current success. "The Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women," Beckham told the magazine. "That's why I do what I do today." It sounds like Beckham wants to focus on her fashion line, something that undoubtedly takes tons of work and dedication.
