Mel C Defends THAT Topless Photo & Clarifies Her Comments About Little Mix Being Too ‘Provocative’!

Don’t hate her cuz she’s Sporty!

Melanie C is spilling all kinds of tea as of late, from her willingness to do a Spice Girls reunion to her opinion on the girl groups of today.

But in December, the 43-year-old came under fire for calling Little Mix too “provocative” — then posting a topless photo of herself on Instagram (above).

Though Internet users blasted Sporty Spice for being hypocritical over the skintillating snap, the songstress defended her shirtless pic by saying it wasn’t “overtly sexual”!

Speaking to, the performer said she just wanted to show off the hard work she does to maintain her ripped physique, explaining:

“There are a lot of really provocative images around but I’ve never presented myself as overtly sexual. The snap was a grainy Polaroid- I’m 43 and work hard for my body, it was just a bit of fun, it’s not the same as the other stuff you see.”

We mean, she’s definitely not at Kylie Jenner‘s ass-presenting level, but at the end of the day it IS another topless pic.

Mel also clarified her comments about Little Mix, saying she had nothing but love for the Black Magic performers — no matter how sexual they get:

“I think generally now there’s so much sexualization, is it healthy? Its concerning as a mum to a little girl but it’s not my place to dictate what adults do- things have changed. I absolutely love and support the Little Mix girls.”

We still detect a hint of shade in that response, but it’s concerned motherly shade!

Do YOU think Mel’s topless pic is different?
