Victoria Beckham Gives an Update on the Rumored Spice Girls Reunion Tour

Update, February 10: Victoria Beckham may have just set the record straight about the Spice Girls Reunion Tour rumors that began circulating earlier this week. According to British Vogue, the designer declared “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour,” at a preview of her F/W 18 collection today. But while a tour isn’t in the works right now, Beckham didn’t dismiss the idea of something happening down the line. “You know, there’s so much bad stuff going on, and the Spice Girls were about fun and celebrating individuality,” she said. “I think there’s so much that the brand can do, and it’s such a positive message for young kids. What does that look like in the future? It’s not me in a cat-suit.”

Originally posted on February 7: Remember Victoria Beckham’s mysterious Spice Girls Instagram post last week? We’ve been crossing our fingers that the group had something exciting up their sleeves, and now it appears we know what it is. TMZ reports that a reunion tour is officially happening, with stops in both the UK and the U.S. planned. Because friendship lasts forever, right? 

Although the cult ’90s group has not confirmed the news, TMZ reports that they’re in talks with former manager Simon Fuller and are in the “rough planning” stage, intending to kick off the tour in late summer. Plus, we can reportedly expect new tour merch, but no new music. All we can say is: You can bet we’ll be booking tickets immediately. Can you imagine how good the stage costumes will be? If the news is true, we can’t wait to see what they’ll be wearing during the tour. See you there!

Victoria Beckham: There won’t be a Spice Girls tour

OHMYGOSSIP — Victoria Beckham says there will be no Spice Girls tour.
The 43-year-old star recently reunited with her former bandmates – Geri Horner, Emma Bunton, Mel B and Mel C – to plot plans for a reunion but Victoria insists there won’t be any tour in the near futuree.
She told Vogue magazine: “I’m not going on tour. The girls aren’t going on tour. It was so great to see the girls. We had such a fun lunch. It was really, really, really lovely. I still speak to them all individually, but for us all to get together was really lovely. There’s something so strong in the message of what the Spice Girls stood for. What is that in the future? What does that look like? We were just bouncing ideas around. Brainstorming. But this [fashion] is what I do.”
Meanwhile, her bandmate Geri previously confessed she had given up hope about the girl group reuniting.
Speaking about the possibility of the band reforming for the 20th anniversary of their debut single ‘Wannabe’, Geri said: “We all pushed for it, like, ‘Come on, let’s try and make it happen.’ It didn’t. You get to a point where you go, ‘Do you know what, just let it go.’ And I was having a baby. I’d really sort of let it go. It’s funny, they say let things go and I really had. That’s when I decided to go into television. A BBC executive said, ‘We think you should do primetime entertainment.’ She really encouraged me to do it.”

Calvin Harris May Have Agreed to Remix Spice Girls’ ‘2 Become 1’

Cashing in! Calvin Harris once reportedly made an interesting promise to a fan named Filip Odzak, who he met while touring in Australia. Now, five years later, the fan is reaching out to the Scottish DJ, 33, and urging him to make good on his word.

Odzak posted a screenshot on Twitter on Thursday, December 7, of a text message he sent to the Grammy winner reminding him of their encounter. “Hi Calvin, You may not remember me but my name is Filip with an F and we met during the 2012 stereosonic tour in Australia,” he wrote. “During your appliance at Marquee in Sydney, while hanging backstage in the library bar, we made a deal — sealed with a hand shake — that you would remix Spice Girls ‘2 Become 1’ when marriage equality was finally legalized in Australia. Well it just happened today.”

The Australian fashion commentator couldn’t mask his excitement as he urged Harris to fulfill his apparent promise: “For five years I’ve been waiting for this: I’m very excited to hear what you do with the iconic track to celebrate this momentous occasion. A deal is a deal! Sincerely, Flip.”

Odzak also attached a silly selfie of himself posing alongside the “Feels” DJ, who has yet to respond to the tweet.

Fans have taken to the social networking platform to express their support for Odzak’s objective.

“Is it too late to pitch for the Christmas #1 with a song that doesn’t exist yet?” one fan replied.

One supporter replied with a funny gif.

Added another: “This must happen.”

Australia legalized same-sex marriage on Thursday, December 7. “This belongs to us,” Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnball said of the news. “This is Australia: fair, diverse, loving and filled with respect. For every one of us this is a great day.”

As for Harris? The “Slide” artist rarely covers other artists’ tracks, but perhaps he’d make an exception!

Pumpkin Spice Makeup Is Fall Personified

Each year, the long-awaited arrival of the pumpkin spice latte heralds the unofficial beginning of fall. (What, you thought that honor went to Labor Day?) But pumpkin spice mania doesn’t just stop at Starbucks. Everything seems to be pumpkin spice-ified this time of year, from a myriad of (sometimes questionable) food products to skin care products that harness the benefits of pumpkin to even pumpkin spice hair color. And, of course, we can’t forget about makeup.

Pumpkin spice is a flattering shade that works on a variety of skin tones and can be applied to cheeks, eyes and lips. Unlike bright orange, pumpkin spice has brown, cinnamon and sometimes copper undertones that make it far more wearable and perfect for fall.

Mark Wahlberg Forces Journalists To Reenact Spice Girls’ ‘Wannabe’ Video Just ‘Cause

Usually it’s the journalists asking things of celebrities, but in this case, Mark Wahlberg turned the tables. 

In London for a “Transformers: The Last Knight” press event, Wahlberg recently grouped together some male entertainment writers on the staircase where the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” video was filmed at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel.

“Sing it live!” the actor orders, after some audio trouble, in a clip posted Saturday by Kevin McCarthy, who reports for a D.C. Fox affiliate. Chris Van Vliet, Andrew Freund, Scott Carty and Xilla Valentine also appear to be doing their best to channel the iconic British girl group. 

To see just how well the ragtag boy band nailed it, here’s part of the original with the new footage:

Expect their cover album out never. 

”Transformers” hits theaters June 21.

John Oliver Destroys Pumpkin Spice Lattes, The ‘Coffee That Tastes Like A Candle’

It’s that time of year: Leaves are changing, Halloween decorations are on display, and cable knit sweaters are everywhere. But most importantly, the all-famous Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at your local Starbucks.

And according to John Oliver, everyone’s drinking this “coffee that tastes like a candle” like there’s no tomorrow — and he finds it disgusting.

Americans love their pumpkin products so much that in 2012 they ate just over five pounds of pumpkin per person, Oliver pointed out on a “Last Week Tonight” web exclusive posted Sunday. And the fact there is no actual pumpkin in Pumpkin Spice Lattes doesn’t stop consumers from imbibing.

It’s all a trick, a horrified Oliver says in his rant.

“We tolerate pumpkin spice because we like the Fall,” explains Oliver. “It’s the best season because you get to stop thinking about how weird your legs look in shorts.”

Do you agree with Oliver’s assertion that pumpkin spice is just “eggnog for morning people,” and that we should think of a better Fall-related flavor, preferably one that doesn’t taste like a candle actually tastes? (“Don’t ask me how I know that,” Oliver says.) Let us know in the comments below!
