The Spice Girls Might Be Reuniting, but as a Trio Named GEM
The Spice Girls are kind of, sort of reuniting!
Here’s the deal: they’re two members short of their original five, and they have a new name. It still counts, we guess. Mel B, Geri Halliwell and Emma Bunton are now a trio going by GEM, appearing in a video thanking their fans.
“We have the best fans in the whole entire world,” Mel B. began.
“You’ve stood by us for twenty years, and we want to say a big thank you,” Halliwell added.
“We’ve had our ups and downs, but you’ve always been there,” Bunton continued. And so, they’re throwing a 20th birthday party, and everyone is invited.
The text following their announcement proclaimed:
“Happy 20th birthday to all our fans. This is a celebration for you! We hope to tell you soon, what you want, what you really really want #WANNABE.”
The announcement comes 20 years after their hit video for “Wannabe” was released. That song that became the biggest-selling debut single by a female group ever.
There’s been speculation of a Spice Girls reunion for a while now, with Mel B. teasing last month that there wouldn’t be a reunion until next year. The ladies haven’t come together as a full group since they performed 2012 Olympics in London.
