Victoria Beckham's Scrapped Hip-Hop Album Leaks as Karma for Dissing the Spice Girls

Now that Victoria Beckham is a fashion powerhouse, she wishes you would forget that she was ever known for anything else. Every so often, she refuses to do a reunion tour (but ends up doing it), refuses to perform at the London Olympics closing ceremony (but ends up doing it), or refuses to appear on the red carpet next to the other Spice Girls at the opening of their own musical (she did not end up doing it).

As recently as earlier this month, she bitterly reminisced about her time in the biggest girl group in all of herstory:

“They used to turn [my mic] off and just let the others sing. I got the last laugh - and now my mic is well and truly on, finally.”

Um, Vic, this isn't an exclusive. We all knew your mic was not on and were ok with that. Having Geri's turned on was bad enough. Also, maybe be thankful they cut you a check, despite your lack of contribution?

Anyway, that's not all Beckham had to share:

"I was always the one that loved fashion and it was quite a result for me because the girls always used to get their clothes for free because they were crap and so there was a lot of budget for me to have my little Gucci dress.”

Emma's baby doll dresses and platforms, Melanie B's cheetah print numbers, Melanie C's full-body Adidas looks, and Geri's Union Jack dress are iconic. How dare you?

VB, you finished with sh*tting all over my childhood? No? Oh, okay:

“When all the other girls were being fun and spontaneous and jumping on tables, I was always the one checking the table wasn’t going to collapse. I was always the sensible one."

Ok, we get it! You're so above the band that made you famous, the band without which you would have never met your footballer husband, the band without which...well, everything else about your current privileged life. But I digress.

Point is: Victoria hates that she tried to convince us she was an acceptable-enough singer for so many years, so she's probably pretty pissed that Come Together, a scrapped hip-hop album she worked on with Damon Dash way back in the early aughts, is coming to light and making waves on the internet today. Let's consider this karmic retribution for biting the hand that has fed for the past two decades:



Dear other bloggers covering this, "Let Your Head Go" is not new.

How could you forget the music video, which channels Joan Crawford's iconic wire hanger meltdown? Research, people!

And before any fellow Spice Girls fans call me a traitor, know that I love the group more than almost all of my cousins, aunts and uncles. We're hardest on the ones we love most.

P.S. Weak voice be damned, this will forever be a bop:
