Well this was kind of a let down!
As we previously reported, Victoria Beckham teased that she’d be joining James Corden for some Carpool Karaoke during her visit to The Late Late Show. However, when the segment aired, we learned the fashion designer didn’t actually film an entire Carpool Karaoke session — rather the singalong was only a brief moment in a “recreation” of the trailer for the ’80s flick, Mannequin.
Sadly, we’re not joking. While we’re disappointed that we didn’t get to see Posh Spice belt out Viva Forever, there is one person who is probably thrilled this bit wasn’t a Carpool Karaoke sketch.
Reportedly, Miz Beckham’s former bandmate Mel B was PISSED that the fashion designer was participating in the popular late night sketch. Why?? Apparently, the America’s Got Talent judge didn’t think it was fair of Victoria to use the Spice Girls to promote her image when she refused to participate in a reunion tour for the girl group.
One source told The Sun:
“Mel is livid Victoria is all of a sudden embracing her Spice Girls past after years of trying to distance herself from the band. She was desperate for the girls to go on a very lucrative reunion tour to celebrate their music with millions of fans. But once Posh pulled out, the idea began to crumble leaving the members of the band keen to perform having no choice but to ditch it. Mel feels it’s unfair Victoria is now using their music to boost her own profile.”
Regardless, we doubt Scary Spice is pissed about this Mannequin trailer — so it’s probably all water under the bridge at this point. Be sure to ch-ch-check out Posh and James’ Mannequin remake for yourself (below)!
