So you know how the world’s still having a fit about the fact that Mel B revealed recently that she once had a full-on lesbian relationship ‘back in the day’? Well, it looks like readers of the Daily Mail are going to be continuing to clutch their pearls in shock this morning, as The Saviour Of The X Factor 2014 has revealed that she not only still talks to this elusive lady lover of hers, but that she also KISSED ALL THE SPICE GIRLS back in the day, too.
Fans of the hit Channel 4 show ‘Sugar Rush’ will no doubt be having a field day, we imagine.
But honestly, what’s the big ‘hoo-ha’ about this guys? So what – she used to date a woman, and she’s snogged a few of her mates – WHO HASN’T? IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY, PEOPLE.
OK, it might be vaguely interesting because it’s Mel B and we basically love her and want to be her. And a few of our boy-friends (and probably some of our girl-friends if we’re honest) have had a few naughty thoughts about some Spice Girl-on-Girl action).
Speaking to those scamps at Attitutde, Mel revealed that her lady-loving days started way back when she was just another 17-year old girl in Leeds, fooling around with a bit of teenage experimentation (STEADY LADS):
“At 17 you want to experiment. I don’t think you should put a name on it. Well actually, I don’t care if people put a name on it. I didn’t. I had fun!”Sounds like it, Mel. And the best part of all of this? She’s still pals with the woman in question – so much so that they still have a catch-up and a natter when they can – and before you ask, NO IT DOESN’T MEAN SHE’S STILL SNOGGING CHICKS.
“I had a great five-year relationship with a lovely lady who I still talk to this day, and that’s that. I mean, if it happened yesterday I would probably be saying something different. But I’ve been happily married to my husband for seven years. Do I want to spoon with a woman, and snuggle? No. I want to do that with my husband. At 17 I wanted to spoon and snuggle and do everything with a woman… But not right now.”
But that’s not to say she doesn’t still appreciate the ladies, you know – Mel said that she points out ‘phwoar’-worthy birds to her husband all the time, but she doesn’t really know where she sits on the whole ‘sexual’ spectrum:
Well excuse us whilst we put on our Samantha from Sex And The City hat on and say ‘IT’S THE 21ST CENTURY MEL, YOU DON’T NEED A LABEL’.
And in other same-sex Spice Girl shenanigan news, our favourite Leeds lass also revealed that she used to have to practise kissing with the Spice Girls because of her ‘tongue fear’.
OH YEAH, THAT OLD EXCUSE.
Mel revealed that she begged the other Spice Girls to kiss her, in order so she could find out what it felt like for other people:
“I’ve kissed all the other Spice Girls. Nothing sexual; I had a tongue fear and I was like, ‘Tell me how this feels. Does it feel weird? Does it feel awful?’ But that was nothing sexual at all. They were all like, ‘Yuck’”
Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Girl Power’, doesn’t it? For services to female sexuality, we SALUTE you Melanie Brown.
