Victoria Beckham Reveals How She Really Felt Being Called 'Posh Spice'

For decades, Victoria Beckham has been known as “posh” based on her nickname “Posh Spice” in the Spice Girls.

“I was given the name Posh in 1996 over lunch with Peter Loraine of Top of The Pops magazine and the rest of the Spice Girls,” Victoria posted on her Instagram Story. “I can’t say it would have been my first choice, but ultimately grew into it on my own terms.”

She continued, “I was young and shy, and being Posh helped me find my style and confidence, and my voice.”

The message was in promotion of her new line, Posh Lipstick.

“[Posh Lipstick] is deeply personal – lipstick has always given me confidence when I needed it and extra spice when I already had it,” she said. “Each shade is inspired by a specific memory, and whilst the moments may have been my own, the energy and emotion is shared by us all.”

Recently, we found out some news about Victoria and her husband David.

Mel C Reveals How The Spice Girls Got Their Nicknames

Mel C, aka Sporty Spice, is opening up about just how the Spice Girls got their iconic nicknames in a new interview.

Speaking on The Babble podcast, the 46-year-old singer revealed that the groups’ nicknames came from a really surprising place.

“Well it’s really weird because you know Top Of The Pops, right? Such a famous show and they have a magazine. And they just used to do some silly thing at the front of the magazine every week, they’d give like…it was Britney Spears was big at the time and they called her ‘Broccoli Spears’ and Natalie Imbruglia was ‘Natalie Umbrella Stand’ and they just had these names,” Mel shared with host Matty J.

She continued, “One week, they put a spice rack and they gave us these names and they just stuck, and that was it!”

“We kind of embraced them and in the States that’s how people know us, they don’t even know our real names,” Mel added. “It was really it was a fun thing, we loved it because I think we really became caricatures of our actual selves and out and those nicknames help that.”

Mel was known as Sporty Spice, with Victoria Beckham as Posh Spice, Geri Halliwell as Ginger Spice, Emma Bunton as Baby Spice and Mel B as Scary Spice.

Just recently, Mel C opened up about how the group were almost never harassed by men. Here’s why they weren’t…

“I get asked quite a lot about the #MeToo movement within the music industry and if I ever experienced anything,” she said on the podcast.

“And I’m like, ‘Are you kidding me?’ No one would come near the Spice Girls because they were petrified of us. You knew if you messed with one of them you’d have to deal with the other four, so we always had backup.”

That said, she said there was plenty of sexism.

“We started talking about Girl Power because we experienced sexism in the industry. We were just five girls, we wanted to be famous, we wanted to be pop stars. Quite quickly we were being told: ‘Girl bands don’t sell records, you can’t be on the front cover of magazines because girls buy records by boys’…we were like: ‘Seriously, don’t say that to the Spice Girls’ — that’s a red rag to a bull,” went on to explain.

“As things slowly, slowly start to get back to normal and we’ve all started to meet up with friends again haven’t we?,” Emma Bunton said on her radio show. “Which is strange… I actually started to think I would never see them again… well unless it was on Zoom calls. And this week, yes, I finally got to meet up with Geri, Mel B, Mel C and Victoria!”

“Now you may think we propped up a bar somewhere or had drinks in the garden but no! We went on a social distancing walk in the woods, yes!,” Emma added.

We’re glad to see there’s no bad blood or drama between the women after this story emerged.

Geri discussed how the Spice Girls were preparing for their debut Brits performance in 1997, and how she wished to spice up a black Gucci dress that was presented to her by stylists. Inspired by the actual awards ceremony, she opted to go with a British flag.

“I don’t know if this is true, but you’re not meant to cut up a flag…so I found a tea towel. My sister did it, she was better at sewing than I am,” she revealed.

After a stylist said no and warned her that it could be seen as racist and associated with far-right nationalist group, she added a peace sign to the back of the dress.

“I was like, oh my goodness…no, stop. We celebrate all cultures. So that’s why I put the peace sign on the back…and then the actual performance, we had our backs to the audience, so you could see the peace sign…I think we found power in each other. That was the whole point of the group.”

“I woke up the next morning, and the picture of me in that dress was in the front page of every newspaper. That dress really became the identity of what girl power stood for. People would wear their own version of it. Suddenly, you saw the British flag on a lot of fashion…I’ve always been, like, a secret fashion designer,” she remarked.
