the irregular quote of the day

19 Oct

From angry mum, Earthpal: –

Spice Girl apologists are coming out with the usual tosh such as them being healthy role models for young girls and great ambassadors of girl-empowerment, blah, blah . . . but Girl Power was nothing but a massive marketing ploy aimed at young girls to get them to spend their hard-earned pocket money (and their parents money) on all the cheesy merchandise and those bloody awful records. And they did nothing for female empowerment except to commercialise thousands and thousands of young girls and give them hollow expectations of what life is about.

I don’t know how much the tickets are going to cost. No doubt the figures will reflect their exploitative greed (and that of their manager). But do you know what? If their reunion was in aid of a respectable charity I don’t think I’d have a problem paying but when it’s just to feed their fading ego’s and their bank balances, they can bloody well whistle for it. They failed abysmally as soloists and their only motive in this reunion is gratuitous greed and a sad effort to reclaim some of their long-lost celebrity status.

For the record, I really fucking loathe Victoria “Posh-spice” Beckham. Never has someone so uniquely talentless, been so successful. I love the fact David screws around with any bit of skirt he can get alone in a room, as Posh appears to me to be the most obnoxious and precious cow on the planet (apologies if this post comes across as somewhat misogynistic, but I guess if I really cared I’d change it).

    Didn’t Campbell and Beckham have a age-long catfight? And didn’t Campbell end it by sucking up to “Posh”?Case and point.

    Oi Hands off the Spice Girls Tyger… I think they are very talented. Posh is a bright and articulate woman who deserves to be listened to when she speaks on the social issues of the day. Naomi Campbell is an even tempered and a superb author.. Did you ever read Swan? I can’t wait for Kate Moss forthcoming biography of Jeremy Bentham….. Nurse I think I need me meds NOW!
