POP MUSIC: Spice Girls Are Going On Tour Without Victoria Beckham…Do They Need Her?

Published

on

One year for my birthday I got an entire box of Spice Girls lollipops. I say this to let you know how close to home this piece of journalism hits.

The Spice Girls are officially going on tour for the first time in 20 years…sort of. Back in 1998, Geri Halliwell Horner aka Ginger Spice abruptly left the group in the middle of their world tour and fans have not been able to spice up their lives ever since. Rumors of a reunion have been circulating for some time but fans could never be too sure what to believe. Melanie Brown aka Scary Spice spoke of a reunion when she visited the talk show, The Real, but then rumors swirled that Victoria Beckham aka Posh Spice did not want to reunite. After months of speculation, Melanie Chisholm aka Sporty Spice, Emma Bunton aka Baby Spice, Halliwell Horner, and Brown took to social media to release the official announcement that the Spice Girls are in fact going on tour…just without Beckham.

But are the Spice Girls even the Spice Girls without their somberly chic fifth member? The answer is yes. Posh was great for a short skirt and a blunt bob but the truth is that Beckham was never the star of the group. She has even admitted to lip syncing most of the time since she felt her voice wasn’t as strong as the other members. The best thing about these girls was that they worked best as a group. There was no “Beyoncé” per se. Each fan had a favorite Spice and loved them for their own unique reasons. I think Beckham’s refusal to join should not stop the other four talents from giving the fans what they want…and that is GIRL POWER!

Tickets for the tour go on sale Saturday.

AWWW: A Rescue Team Of 9 Was Needed To Rescue 1 Adorably Chubby Rat

Published

on

Over in Bensheim, Germany a rotund rodent got herself into a jam when she tried to squeeze through a hole of a manhole cover only to get stuck…and honestly, I can relate. When I was 8 years old I tried to squeeze my thunder-thighs-in-training into a children’s swing and it took my dad and three other grown men to get me out. I am the German fat-rat!

Volunteer firefighters were called when a young girl noticed the fat rat was stuck and no time was wasted to help the poor critter. Eight firefighters and at least one animal rescuer appeared on the scene to safely extract the chubby critter. Animal rescuer Michael Sehr told BBC “She had a lot of winter flab and was stuck fast at her hip. There was no going forward or back.” When asked why anyone would even want to save something so many are repulsed by Sehr said “Even animals that are hated by many deserve respect.”

Alls well that ends well! Hopefully no authorites will be needed to help me shimmy out of these skinny jeans I thought looked cute this morning…in the meantime, check out the entire rescue below!

Elton John And Taron Egerton Performed A Fantastic Duet Of ‘Tiny Dancer’

Published

on

The dancer may be tiny but the talent on stage was massive! Taron Egerton and Elton John gave a fantastic performance of “Tiny Dancer” last night at the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party.

If you’ve been looking for a reason to toss on your bedazzled cape and brightly colored sunglasses then boy do I have good news for you. An “epic musical fantasy” about Elton John’s life, entitled Rocketman, is expected to hit theaters in May 2019. Taron Egerton, from Robin Hood fame, plays the musical legend and judging by his performance last night, we are all in for a treat. The audience of the charity event felt like a candle in the wind when Taron suggested an off-the-cuff performance of “Tiny Dancer.” There isn’t even a pun creative enough to embody what the audience must have felt when Elton John himself volunteered to accompany Taron on the piano!

In addition to a truly moving performance, the 27th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party raised more than $6.3 million for an effort to end AIDS.

VIRAL: There Is No Room For Love When This Dog Protects His Barney

Published

on

I think this dog missed the whole “I love you, you love me” message Barney was trying to teach all those years ago…

In this viral video posted to Twitter, an adorable pup channels his inner Cujo anytime his owner gets close to the Barney the Dinosaur stuffed animal. While the frenzied attacks are comical in themselves, this video should definitely be played with the sound up. While we never see more than the dog owner’s hand, we hear his high pitched screams of terror every time the dog take a lunge.
