The Spice Girls spiced up the London Summer Olympics 2012 Closing Ceremonies with their performance of two of their hit songs, “Wannabe” and “Spice Up Your Life.” Those 30-somethings who grew up with Ginger, Posh, Sporty, Baby, and Scary were in a tizzy over this reunion. They marveled at how the Girls looked so fit, and how Scary seemed less scarier. However, most noticed Posh’s stand-out performance.
Yes, she stood out. At times, it was as if she was dancing to the beat of her own drum.
(I said a) who do you think you are? (Raise your hands, unless you’re tired.)
Some kind of superstar? (And if you’re really tired, put your arm all the way down.)
You have got to (join the other Girls, girl!)
Swing it, shake it, move it, make it, who do you think you are? (Oh, NOW you make the gesture.)
Trust it, use it, prove it, groove it, show me how good you are. (Okay fine, just pose away.)
Others have pointed out that Posh has always portrayed herself that way, acting all aloof in their videos and concerts. Well gee, when did being “posh” mean being “aloof”? In fact, I suspected her act was a convenient way to cover up her not-so-stellar singing skills.
But I guess nowadays she can really make it her schtick. I won’t be surprised if she’s also Rich Spice, what with her clothing line plus her husband’s earnings. So yeah, I can see why she acted like she really didn’t need this Olympic gig.
Stop right now, thank you very much.
