During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres on Monday, the singer-turned-fashion mogul was asked by DeGeneres if she misses performing on stage with her fellow Spice Girls Mel B (Scary Spice), Mel C (Sporty Spice), Emma Bunton (Baby Spice), and Geri Halliwell (Ginger Spice), especially after she chose not to participate in the group’s latest U.K. tour.
“You know, I had so much fun and I’m still close with the girls,” replied Beckham, who goes by the nickname Posh Spice. “And I was so proud of them and everything that they did. [The reunion] was a huge success.”
“But you know, for me, I loved it when I did it. I feel like a very different person now,” Beckham explained. “I’ve got four children, and I’m really busy doing what I’m doing. And it just didn’t feel like the right thing to do.”
Beckham, who is married to football player David Beckham, now runs her eponymous fashion label that just celebrated its eleventh anniversary last month. And though she’s now busy expanding her fashion empire, she made it clear that she has a lot of love for the Spice Girls and will always be Posh Spice.
“[Despite not being part of the latest reunion tour], I was supporting them enormously, and was so proud of them,” Beckham said. “And I’ll always be a Spice Girl. I’ll always be Posh Spice. Always.”
Titled Spice World – 2019 Tour, Spice Girl’s latest reunion U.K. tour kicked off in May in Dublin and ended in June in London. It marked the group’s first performance together since the 2012 Summer Olympics closing ceremony, and was their first tour without Beckham. According to Billboard, the 13-show tour raked in $78 million.
