She famously left the iconic pop group, the Spice Girls, in 1998 – two years before the group officially disbanded.
But almost 20 years later, Geri Horner has revealed the real reason behind her departure. Speaking to The Sun, 44-year-old Geri divulged that the group’s decision to make an R&B album was something she couldn’t back.
Admitting that the decision led her to think that she needed to give the group ‘space’, she said: ‘Sometimes you have to give people space… They had to make that R&B album, which I’m not. ‘I don’t know how to write R&B music, I really don’t. I don’t have that. So they did that album and made a very good album, it had to be done and that’s quite right, as an artist you want to explore.’
The monks were dressed in their traditional burnt orange attire, and Geri looked smart as she slipped a white jacket on.
The beauty, who has two children – Bluebell Madonna, 11, and Montague George, six months – appeared to be in high spirits as she laughed and chatted away to everyone.
Geri recently released a single, Angels In Chains, in tribute to her late friend George Michael, of which she is donating all proceeds to charity Childline.
The Spice Girls burst onto the music scene in 1996 with their debut single Wannabe, and became revered as 1990s icons of the ‘Cool Britainnia’ movement. At the time of Geri’s departure, she cited that ‘differences’ between her and the group were the cause of her leaving. However, Mel B, Emma Bunton and Geri reformed a spinoff trio group in 2016, naming themselves Spice Girls – GEM – although they have yet to release any music.
A characteristically smart take on the espadrille trend, the Damita wedge sandals from MICHAEL Michael Kors bring the designer’s glamorous New York touch to a summertime staple. Sitting on a layered jute wedge heel, the sandals have a strappy upper in canvas with a contemporary zip detail at the front. Pair with a maxi dress and metallic clutch for holiday nights out.
Wedge heels are great because not only do they lengthen legs but unlike stiletto heels, they’re much more comfortable for all day wear. And the good news about Ginger Spice’s shoes are they’re in the sale. Woohoo.
