Although our Randy would like nothing more this summer than to witness a Spice Girls reunion, sadly, that seems about as likely as Randy cleaning our apartment. The Girls have been 86ed from performing at Sir Bob Geldof’s Live 8 (or Live Aid 2) multi-star concert in Philadelphia and London in July even before they could dial the clinic to make Botox appointments. Seems the BBC, which is broadcasting the event that aims to stanch Third World debt, thinks the Spicers will trivialize the show’s dead-serious message. And a bunch of multimillionaire bands singing to end poverty is dead serious. (breakingnews.iol.ie)
The corporation also believes there wouldn’t be enough time for the Spice Girls to perform at the show, because 16 major acts, including Paul McCartney, Sting and U2 have already agreed to sing at the London leg of the July event in the capital’s Hyde Park.
McCartney, Sting, Bono? Bor-ring. Wouldn’t it be an end to world poverty if they (and others, like Will Smith) just forked over some of their cash and let us enjoy the Spice Girls? We’re just saying.
