Victoria Beckham Talks About How She Left The Spice Girls
Before becoming one of the big names in the fashion industry, Victoria Beckham was a part of the girl band Spice Girls. She left the band in 2001 and pursued her solo music career. Beckham went on to launch her own fashion line that has her name.
“He performed ‘Tiny Dancer,’ as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him,” the 46-year-old wrote, referring to John’s Las Vegas residency. “It was a life-changing moment — while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion.” She opened up about this in a letter to her future self for the British Vogue magazine. She added that she was moving on on her for the very first time and that it was terrifying. Beckham further opened up about how she carved out her own path by getting into fashion and then the beauty industry.
This letter continues right after the one she had written to her 18-year-old self in 2017 for the same magazine. In that letter, she talked about what it was like to be a part of the Spice Girls.
“Together you will make it OK to look different. And, as the Spice Girls, you will sell 75 million records,” she wrote to her younger self in 2017. “You cannot possibly imagine your future life right now. You will travel on private planes, visit incredible countries, stay in fantastic hotels.”
In her previous letter, she signed off by saying that she would have been an insecure woman if it were not for the girl group she was in.
Victoria Beckham was last seen with her band members at the 2012 Olympic Games held in London. She was called for performing with her former bandmates in 2018 but refused to do so.
