Victoria Beckham Admits to Lip Syncing During Spice Girls Concerts
Maybe this is why there won’t be a complete Spice Girls reunion tour any time soon.
According to Victoria Beckham, she didn’t actually sing a lot while performing with her old girl group back in their heyday. In speaking with Claudia Winkleman at the Vogue 100: A Century of Style exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, Posh Spice admitted to lip syncing during Spice Girls concerts.
“They used to turn it off and just let the others sing,” she said. “I got the last laugh — and now my mic is well and truly on, finally.”
After taking an indefinite hiatus from the band, Beckham since flourished in the fashion industry, creating her own line of shoes, apparel, and accessories. For the 42-year-old, playing dress-up during her time in the Spice Girls really helped cement her love of design.
“I was always the one that loved fashion and it was quite a result for me because the girls always used to get their clothes for free because they were crap and so there was a lot of budget for me to have my little Gucci dress,” she told the crowd, adding, “The first dress that I wore in the Spice Girls, which everybody thought was a little black Gucci dress, was actually from Miss Selfridge — it wasn’t a little back Gucci dress.”
Recent reports claim that Beckham-less Spice Girls reunion tour is still happening as the mother-of-four have opted to skip it to continue work on her label. A source said Beckham has “been very respectful about the fabulous time they had together in the past, however her focus is now very much her family and fashion business.”
