There’s a flight the military should have taken down.
THE Spice Girls are to reform for the closing ceremony of the Olympic Games.
In a spectacular finale to London 2012, Geri Halliwell will show off her famous Union Jack dress once more – after Victoria Beckham let slip yesterday that she was backing the one-off reunion.
The band, who last performed together in 2008, are in the “final stages” of negotiations to make the nostalgic curtain-closer a reality.
Victoria, Geri, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Melanie Chisholm are tipped to perform two songs, including their debut hit Wannabe.
They will join an all-star bill that already includes George Michael, The Who, Emeli Sande, Take That and Jessie J for the climax to the Games on August 12.
The creative team behind the closing ceremony and sources close to the band yesterday said the Spice Girls were “95 per cent” confirmed to appear.
It was previously suggested that Victoria – or Posh Spice – was opposed to a reunion.
But during a radio interview yesterday, she said: “I would love nothing more. It would be great.
“I don’t know about a comeback tour but I loved being back with the girls.
“If they’re up for something, then I certainly am.”
It is thought her husband David’s exclusion from Team GB made the gig more likely.
A source said: “The Spice Girls were first approached for the Games over two years ago.
“However, Victoria’s hectic work schedule, and the fact both she and Mel B live in the States, has always been problematic.
“But she is in London now until the end of the Olympics and David’s exclusion from the football team means she has time to reunite with the Spice Girls.
“She agrees the girls would provide the most fitting and patriotic finale to the closing ceremony.
Last night it was believed the only potential stumbling block to an Olympic reunion was Melanie C, who recently split with long-term boyfriend Thomas Starr.
But the source said: “Everyone is hopeful she will agree to perform.”
Losing your voice is something us civilians don’t have to really worry about, a couple of Hall’s Soothers and we’re right as rain – but for superstar Florence Welch (and her Machine), things are a little different.
After a vocal injury last week, the 25-year-old singer has spoken up about how frightened she was.
She told Us Weekly: “I actually felt something go pop or snap, or whatever. Whatever it is, it was very frightening. I had to really adjust because it happened in the middle of a show.”
Madonna has previously had a bit of a dig at Lady Gaga saying that Born This Way is more than a little inspired by Express Yourself. Some rehearsal footage leaked earlier in the week but now Madge has performed the song live at the first date of her MDNA tour in Israel.
The video quality is pretty awful, but it’s worth watching anyway to see the mash-up. If you can’t watch it at work, Madonna is dressed as a marching band leader. She sings a few verses of Express Yourself, has a little dance and then starts singing Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. She switches back between the two songs and then repeats the line ‘She’s not me’. Zing!
Will this be the start of a super-pop feud? Also since it is Lady Gaga’s song does that mean Madonna has to pay a performance fee to insult her?
Big Brother host Brian Dowling has no qualms with spilling the beans on what he hopes will make this next series of the hit reality show its best yet!
Despite being told by producers to ‘tone down the tan’ in a bid to make the show appear more Made In Chelsea and less Towie (yeah, good luck with that one), the presenter’s confidence isn’t knocked and he’s is still eager to reveal his hopes for the new series. The two elements Brian hopes to see this time around include a gay romance and lots of ugly people. That’s right, in a recent interview Brian says,
”I know the housemates this year will be varied in age…I heard something about maybe couples going in…I don’t know how that works. Maybe they go in and they have to pretend they aren’t couples, like get off with other people,…”We’ve never had a gay romance, have we? I’m not quite sure if the nation are ready for that yet. I think that would be quite nice, a gay romance.”
Brian obviously doesn’t remember the blossoming bromance between former BB besties Anthony and Craig, although that was only ever a one-sided bromance. Brian continued,
"If we had a couple that broke up. That would be amazing. if someone’s in a relationship and they’re dumped on telly and then they got it on with someone else. That would just be a-maz-ing…You want stuff that’s not been done before…They were all very handsome last year as well, so let’s also put a few ugly ones in there!"
I love that Chantelle left Alex Reid because she found him dressed as Roxanne and using sex toys.
Now even a wanna be dumb blonde Barbie’esque non entity may think that there is something not quite right in choosing a boyfriend and father to her child that prefers sheer stockings and Constance Carol red lipstick over Abercrombie & Fitch T-Shirts and desert boots.
Maybe she is not pissed off with the trainee aspect of it but more then fight over g-strings and fishnets of a morning.
Any whoo I get a feeling that wile one fucked up kid.
The two of them recreating a mixture of them both is just wrong.
