Are you a fan of the Spice Girls? If you’re like me, you’ve probably wondered where their nicknames came from – I mean, only one of them actually has a name that relates to “spices” (Ginger).
Mel B, aka Scary Spice, stopped by The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and revealed how they got their nicknames.
She said, “This one journalist who was extremely lazy, couldn’t be bothered to remember all our names and gave us nicknames, like, ‘Oh yeah, that one’s a bit scary. That one is a bit posh. That one is a bit sporty. That one is a bit baby,’ and it just kind of stuck.”
