Please please please please please please please please PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LET THIS BE TRUE.

The British tabloid press is reporting all over the damn shop that the Spice Girls – THE Spice Girls – are secretly converging in Los Angeles to strike a deal about an upcoming reunion. Obviously this is the most exciting news of the past 24 months at least, and could probably preemptively redeem the rest of 2018.

The last time the iconic girl (power) group were together was back in 2012 at the Olympics, but they’ve apparently agreed to another reunion, this time to the tune of nearly $18 million (£10 million) EACH.

Breathe a massive sigh of disappointment, however, as it looks like the unspecified projects they’re supposedly signing onto do not include concerts. BOO.

This is possibly because Victoria Beckham a.k.a. Posh Spice a.k.a. by far the most successful of the five alumni reportedly only agreed to participate if she didn’t have to sing.

Fair enough, if I were a bazillionaire clothing designer married to one of Britain‘s most iconic footballers, I would not deign to use my vocal cords for anything except coughing in disappointment at my wait staff, either.

A source has apparently told UK rag The Sun:

“This is the pop reunion no one thought would ever happen again. But after a long period of negotiation Victoria agreed the time is right to work on new projects this year. It’s very exciting because she has always been adamant she wouldn’t go back.”

Last year Posh told British TV show This Morning, “Girl Power will always be out there and is something that we all still believe.

along with the power of utter nonsense, presumably

In these times of #metoo and #timesup and constantly emerging fuckery at the hands of men, maybe what we want (what we really, really want) is just a bit of old fashioned, 90s-style, low-political-commitment Girl Power.

Greatest hits album, talent show or just a bunch of pictures for Women’s Weekly: I am 10000% here for this rumoured reunion. Please, Pop Gods, let this happen.
