The X Factor judge and former Spice Girl sat down for a lengthy interview with The Guardian recently, in which she spoke candidly about everything from how she came to be known as Scary Spice to co-parenting with Eddie Murphy and her admittedly very active sex drive.
Here’s the excerpt that has the internet abuzz:
“People call me lesbian, bisexual or heterosexual, but I know who’s in my bed and that’s it… I have a huge libido and a great sex life.” “Which is true,” she says. “Well, I did have a four-year relationship with a woman. But I’ve been very happily married for seven years to a penis. Ha ha! An amazing guy.” Does he know she refers to him as a penis? “Well, you know what I mean. But I’ve definitely not been shy or been one to hold back. If I wanted to try something, I did. I had a girlfriend. So what?”
So what indeed, as it’s clear the workaholic, who’s been married to Stephen Belafonte since 2007, is happy with how her career and personal lives have evolved over the course of 20 years in the business.
