Posh, Ginger, Sporty, Scary and Baby are back together again. The five Spice Girls have reunited, confirming their reformation with a statement announcing, “The time now feels right to explore some incredible new opportunities together.”
The Sun reports that each member is being paid £10 million ($17.5 CAD) to take part in a reunion that will include a variety possible projects, including a new greatest-hits album, a televised talent show, TV shows in China, and product endorsements.
You may notice that the above list projects does not include live performances or any new recordings. Apparently, Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) only agreed to the reunion after being assured she wouldn’t need to sing.
