In news that should shock absolutely no one, Victoria Beckham, the least talented former member of The Spice Girls, has revealed that her mic was usually turned off during the girls’ live performances throughout the ’90s.
“They used to turn it off and just let the others sing,” the 42-year-old fashion designer told a crowd while speaking at the Vogue 100 exhibition in London last night.
She added: “I got the last laugh – and now my mic is well and truly on, finally.”
Beckham’s career was launched by The Spice Girls, though she’s fully embarrassed of her time with the group now that she has a family and overpriced fashion line to promote. In retaliation to her former bandmates’ potential plans to reunite for a world tour without her this year, Beckham has been trying to slander the girls in a series of leaked stories to the tabloids and shady public comments like the ones she made last night.
It’s clear that Beckham, who amplified her fame by marrying professional soccer star David Beckham in 1999, thinks she’s the one who made it out on top.
Adding insult to injury, Beckham went on to suggest she wasn’t just The Spice Girls’ best dressed, but the most responsible as well:
“I was always the one that loved fashion and it was quite a result for me because the girls always used to get their clothes for free because they were crap and so there was a lot of budget for me to have my little Gucci dress.
When all the other girls were being fun and spontaneous and jumping on tables, I was always the one checking the table wasn’t going to collapse. I was always the sensible one.
Luckily because I used to wear heels, I just used to jig about a bit and I got away with it but it never came easily. I was always much more reserved than the other girls.”
Thanks in part to Beckham’s staunch aversion to all things Spice, the rest of the remaining girls are reportedly considering replacing her and one other defunct member, Mel C, through a televised talent competition.
