My inner 90s child is jumping for joy! It may be hard to believe, but the Spice Girls first single “Wannabe” was released in 1996, nearly 20 years ago. I can’t believe that much time has passed and I have no shame in admitting that I just listened to “Wannabe” in my car the other night. Anyway, Mel B. aka Scary Spice stopped by the Today show and made a comment that hints toward a possible reunion.
“You know, when you say it’s our 20th anniversary coming up, it does make you think, ‘Oh, my Gosh! It really has been that long.’ Hopefully, you know, we’ll gather the troops around and we’ll get to do something to celebrate it next year,” Mel B. said.
While nothing has been confirmed, it is pretty exciting to think about. To make these rumors a tad more believable, Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) and Mel C. (Sporty Spice) sent out these tweets:
Woke up this morning wondering whether I need to start practising my backflips???!!!

And Victoria Beckham tweeted this Throwback Thursday:

Before you go getting too excited, Emma clarified and told listeners on her radio show, “If anything happens and it’s concrete, and we decide on something, I will let you know, but nothing’s happening at the moment.”
I really hope these rumors turn out to be true!
