Spice Girls Reunion: Victoria Beckham Dreams On

So says Victoria Beckham, her words echoing the thoughts of a nation as she re-enters the recording studio.

Such is the onward thrust of technology that it is hoped Victoria will not sound like a pig having it testicles throttled by a half-Dutch PA.

“This mic was put in front of me and I was like ‘woah’,” says Her Poshness in the Sun. “It was surreal being back in there.”

Surreal is the word celebrities use to describe any place that isn’t a toilet cubicle in Chinawhite, the GMTV sofa or rehab.

It is not surreal that Posh is back making music. It is simply unreal.

“I always said I wasn’t going to sing again and I really didn’t expect to. But once I got going it as fun.”

Sing When You’re Wagging 

Posh is true to her word. In the throbbing maw of last summer’s World Cup, German cameramen looking for welcome distraction from England’s on-field toil picked out Victoria. At no time was she seen singing, her tongue ever trapped between a grill of clenched teeth.

Although, with son Brooklyn perched on her lap, looking like a blonder Lord Charles, microphones did once pick up a rendition of “Gloes gee tik it up tha arsh” and “Glue wurld wores ind won world clup, nooo-gart, nooo-gart”. But that was all.

Now Posh is in conversation with the Sun, the paper that operates as her official diary. Not a day passes when the Sun is not capturing Posh’s best side and reminding the world that despite looks, Posh is actually phenomenally talented.

And what of these new tunes, the songs that will re-launch the Spice Girls? “The new songs are a progression of the old Spice Girls stuff – nothing radical and still poppy but a bit different.”

No easy thing to pick up the narrative to the Spices oeuvre. How do you follow such singular successes as Stop!, Goodbye and Too Much, songs that defy you to try again?

Posh isn’t saying. She’s started to talk about her new house in Los Angeles. It cost £11million. She says it’s “cosy”. And “practical”.

Sounds like a dream. Surreal ever…
