It’s not that we’re cynical around here it’s that we’re determined realists. Mel B has announced that she’s worried about going blind mere days before the Spice Girls’ world tour starts. Now isn’t that an amazing thing to put into the newspapers?
That the Spice Girls’ world tour is about to start. From which we must conclude that the tickets haven’t all sold as yet:
Mel B ‘fears she is totally blind after being rushed to hospital with sight loss in her right eye’… just days before the Spice Girls reunion tour kicks off
We can go further than this. We can also assume that Mel B’s lesbo with Geri also didn’t sell out that reunion tour:
As the old saying goes there’s no such thing as bad publicity as long as they spell your name right. Which, without being excessively cynical, is probably the way to view this little story that Mel B and Geri Horner once had one of those steamy lesbo flings. For, as you’ll not be surprised to hear, the story is all over the place. Even the story of Mel B playing it down is all over the place. And, amazingly, the stories mention that the Spice Girls have reunited and are on tour again. Amazing that, isn’t it?
Presumably if our collective insistence on refusing to part with our money continues we’ll end up with the story of how Sporty is actually the real mother of Archie – smuggled in using a bed warmer – Emma can read and Posh can sing. No, really.
The point being not that we are cynics around here, it’s that realism insists on always asking this one question in the modern world – am, I being cynical enough?
