"Eddie Murphy...Shame On You"
That's a fun little game isn't it? I digress.
Does Melanie pull a Janet Jackson during the tour? Oh Lord that is going to be so much fun to watch.
She also says that the tour goes til March and they are doing America and then it's done. Are the Girls possibly going to cancel their shows in South America, Australia, China, and South Africa. The shows have still not been scheduled on their website but they are still listed as coming soon. I hope they don't leave those fans out of the loop. That would be just terrible. Fingers crossed.
The chances of Mel changing her solo song on the tour to I Want You Back is not bloody likely but at least you guys who voted can watch the music video.
I Want You Back was written by Missy Elliott for the soundtrack to the film Why Do Fools Fall In Love. Missy approached Mel about doing the song with her while the Girls were starting their first world tour. Melanie accepted, flew out to the US and recorded the song in one afternoon. The song and video, which features Melanie's ex-husband Jimmy Gulzar, achieved the number 1 spot on the UK charts and to this day is the only single of Mel's to do so.
I know that the very beginning of the video is cut off but it is the only version I can find on youtube that is of any good quality. Enjoy.
Victoria joined in on a special Happy 50th Birthday message for talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres which aired on her talk show this past Friday.
Vicki and a group of other celebrities each lipsynched to the Gloria Gaynor tune "I Will Survive" which then became the montage shown above.
The other celebrities in the video are Jake Gyllenhaal, Queen Latifah, Celine Dion, Heidi Klum, Kate Walsh, Paris Hilton, Sharon Osborne, Masi Oka, Jamie Foxx and David Spade.
The Girls will be returning to North America for the second leg of their tour in just a few days, but they appeared on Good Morning America yesterday morning to discuss their excitement.
Watch to find out which one of the Spice Girls is George Clooney's favorite. Oooooh.
Since this is my 200th post on this blog, I thought I would make it special by posting the Wannabe video. This one-take video introduced each of the Girls so perfectly, paved the way for their future successes and went to number 1 all over the world. It also made us wonder, What in the hell is a zig-a-zig ha?
Thanks to everyone for making me want to keep continuing with this site. I thought I would get sick of it in two weeks but I'm actually really enjoying myself. Once the tour is over it may slow down a bit but for now I take it as it comes. Cheers to you!
Does Melanie C turn your head? If she does you can vote for her on Hello Magazine's poll of the most attractive women of 2007. She is currently in third place on the poll with Britney Spears and Delta Goodrem in the lead. I can understand Delta Goodrem being in the top three but did anyone give a good hard look at Britney during the year 2007? It really wasn't pretty.
Translated as "My Latin Boy", Geri's salsa flavored second solo single from Schizophonic was her first to go to number 1 in the UK charts. The video was shot in Sardinia (The Meditteranean)by director Doug Nichol and is a fun little romp in the waves with a few latin men aboard, which is the kind of video needed to take your mind off the winter weather.
Sidenote: For those of you who haven't read Geri's second book Just For The Record, Geri went on a bulimic binge the night before shooting this video because she was afraid of looking fat in the bikini she wore for the shoot. Happy little tale isn't it?
This was Emma's contribution to Children In Need. Her cover of this Petula Clark classic (which is available on her latest album Life In Mono) was the official song for the charity in 2006. The video may be the campiest, cheesiest, and cheapest I've seen her do to date but I do think that she does the song justice.
She was in the middle of competing on Strictly Come Dancing during the making of this video and as such she included many of the contestants, their dance partners, and her own dance partner Darren Bennett as the barrage of characters who take over the hotel room. Darren is the one dancing with Emma when she changes her maid outfit to the little babydoll dress.
Downtown reached # 3 in the UK charts.
