The Spice Girls have made an impression not just on their fans and followers but also the iconic Beyonce.
Victoria Beckham revealed in a recent interview as she discussed the impact the Spice Girls have had on young girls. This is mainly because they embraced their differences. According to Victoria, the Spice Girls was always about accepting who they are and that it is okay to be different.
She said, “Accepting who you are and that’s what the Spice Girls was always about. It’s okay to be different. Let’s not try and change who we are. Let’s celebrate who we are. Let’s celebrate the fact that we’re all different.” The designer was Posh Spice in the girl band.
On Dear Media’s Breaking Beauty Podcast, she added that when they talk about the band, she remembers that how they used to inspire a lot of young girls. She admitted to not talking about it as much anymore. One of those women as per Victoria was Beyonce.
The singer is quite familiar with a girl group as she herself was a part of Destiny’s Child along with her “sisters” Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. “I met Beyoncé a few years ago and she actually said to me, ‘It was the Spice Girls that inspired me and made me want to do what I do and made me proud to be a girl. I’m proud to be who I am,’ ” Beckham recalled during the podcast.
She further continued that if someone like Beyonce who is already so iconic and such a strong woman says that they inspired her then it is something. The Spice Girls were originally formed in 1994 and they stayed together until parting ways in 2000. It included Victoria, Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton, and Geri Halliwell.
The girl group has already had a few reunions over the years after their split. But their latest reunion was in 2019 and it did not include the designer. Meanwhile, Destiny’s Child had a change in band members since their formation back in 1990. But from 2000-2006, Beyonce, Willaims, and Rowland formed a lifelong bond. The trio moved on to their solo careers.
