It looks like we won’t be seeing another Spice Girls reunion anytime soon! In the December issue of Vogue Paris, for which she serves as both guest editor and cover star, Victoria Beckham reveals that she has no passion left for the girl group that made her famous in the '90s.
"I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour," Beckham shares with the mag. "It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere."
The former "Posh Spice" maintains that her four band-mates, Melanie Brown, aka Scary Spice, Emma Bunton, Baby Spice, Melanie Chisholm, Sporty Spice, and Geri Halliwell, Ginger Spice, have nothing to do with her feelings about the group.
"It wasn't a lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn't there," she says. "By contrast, in my new career, the passion grows every year. I still want more."
The hugely successful fashion designer and style icon launched her self-titled label in 2008 and her clothes have been worn by the likes of Beyonce, Anne Hathaway, and Kate Winslet.
Though the girl group got together once more to perform at the closing ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, it was reportedly the last gig they plan on doing for a very long time. Beckham even blames her Spice Girls fame for her un-smiley reputation.
"I looked moody. But I wasn't! I was shy, not very sure of myself," she says. "I had to invent a character and I thought of that: staring at people and pouting. My insecurities helped me create the character in a way. Nowadays, it's like a barrier that comes back whenever I go out in public. That's the way fame has affected me."
But according to Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, the mom-of-four is “the exact opposite of her public image.” In a press release, Alt says of her cover star, “she is spontaneous with a great sense of humor, humble yet at the same time driven by a healthy ambition."
