Mel B Confesses She Wrote Spice Girls ‘Wannabe’ Rap ‘in the Loo’
Mel B visited Today on Wednesday (June 27) to act as the fourth host, and as always, she got candid about her former gig as Scary Spice.
While explaining the Spice Girls' origin story to Hoda Kotb, the America's Got Talent judge confessed that she wrote the "annoying rap part" of "Wannabe" that she "loves" "in the loo."
“Took me, like, eight minutes to write it,” she admitted. “Imagine being with five girls. We all have our own opinions… Every song that we write we have a focus-point topic, so this song was all about supporting each other and if you have a boyfriend, that’s got to be approved by their friends. And I was like, ‘Hold it a minute… I want to go off to the toilet and write a quick rap.’ I made a little tinkle and was writing and I came up with that.”
Mel B is also still saying a Spice Girls reunion will happen and got the crowd excited when asked if she ever got tired of the girl group's hectic schedule. “Never! I’m the only one that can say, ‘We’re gonna be performing,’ which we are gonna be performing,” she exclaimed.
“Finally, they’ve got it together,” Mel B added. “Yes, we’re gonna be doing performances together for sure.”
