Posh Spice sat down for a Q&A with Fern Mallis and shared some previously unknown information!
Beckham revealed some inside details about the try-outs for the Spice Girls: “There were thousands of girls that turned up to audition for the group. There were queues around the studio. Everybody sang a pop song. I sang ‘Mein Herr’ from [the Broadway musical] Cabaret, which was really not the right thing to do, but it was very dramatic.”
But the juiciest reveal was that the Spice Girls originally had a different name!
When Beckham, Mel B, Emma Bunton, Mel C and Geri Halliwell ended up making the group, picking a name was next, and things could have been really with the addition of one, little “y.”
“In the beginning, we were going to be The Spicy Girls,” Beckham explained, “But then we realized there was a porn site called the Spicy Girls. That wouldn’t have been good!”
OK yeah defs glad they ditched the "y"!
