Happy 45th to Mel B aka Scary Spice from The Spice Girls. Did you ever wonder how the girls chose their names… Scary, Ginger, Posh, Sporty and Baby?
Mel B told Cosmopolitian:
“It was actually a teeny bopper magazine called Top of the Pops who gave us our names. We were already established as the Spice Girls, but they wrote a story about us and within it they called us each something different. The names stuck, so we went with it!”
Outside of The Spice Girls Mel B has released solo albums, came in second place on Dancing With The Stars, been a judge on The X Factor and America’s Got Talent and also been in a few films.
