>> Mel C on Court Case

Melanie C was asked what she thought of the outcome of the Spice Girls loss to Aprilia in their court case. Melanie shrugged off the 1 million loss and said:

"Justice has not been done. But we don't care. Hey ho, life goes on."

Melanie was then asked about her new single "Never Be The Same Again". She laughed and added:

"What will never be the same again? Gosh, who knows... My bank account after the court settlement?"

>> Mel C & Emma on Geri

Both Melanie C and Emma Bunton talked to BBC Radio 1 in separate instances. The two girls seem to have differing views on whether Geri should accept their Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music. Mel C said:

"I firmly believe that she should be up there with us. But there's five girls, y'know, who have to make that decision. And that's just, y'know, that's just my opinion,"

Emma however said:

"Obviously, the five of us were in the Spice Girls but we have sort of moved on. And we did an American tour and, y'know, we've done another single and had a Christmas No.1. So I think we have moved on now and become a four piece."

When Melanie was told what Emma said on the show, Mel said:

"We haven't even talked about it. We're just having a laugh rehearsing for The Brits. Geri is not really something that we talk about because we've got our own lives and we're not obsessed like the British tabloids are."

Melanie C and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell will appear together on Channel 4's (UK) show T4. They will both be promoting their singles. A show insider said:

>> NBTSA Rumours

::Rumour Warning::

Melanie C's upcoming single "Never Be The Same Again" was going to be one of her first singles. Left-Eye from TLC which is featured on the song remixed it almost immediately after it was finished however it included swear words and Melanie didn't see them fit in the song so she demanded Left-Eye make a new mix which Left-Eye wasn't happy about doing. Perhaps this explains why they seemed to be on bad terms for a while during the fall.

::Rumour Warning::

Thanks to David K.

::Rumour Warning::

It has been rumoured that Mel B has had some heated conversations with Mel C about Geri. Supposedly Mel B refuses to take the stage to receive the Spice Girls' Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution To British Music if it will be accepted with Geri. When Mel C and Geri met up recently and made up, Mel B was even more furious. Since then the two Mels have been battling it out.

>> Comments on Brit, and B!

BBC Radio 1 asked Melanie C what she thought of being a nominee for Best British Female at the Brit Awards 2000. Melanie said excitedly:

"I can't believe it, it's so fantastic. It's tough, tough competition, you know. I think that's a very tough section. There's some great female artists there."

Mel was then asked what she thought of running against former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell in the category. Mel said

"Good luck to her. She's been very successful with the album, you know, so obviously people like her stuff, so good luck to her. It's nice to see two Spice Girls there. We should be proud of ourselves, and I'm proud to be in there with that lot."

Mel C also said that Mel G is now going back to being called Mel B!

>> Mel C & Ronan Duet

Ronan Keating of boy band Boyzone and Melanie C are in the new issue of NOW Magazine (UK). They commented on each other in the interview, hinting at the possibility of doing a duet together. Ronan was asked if the two would make a single together. He said:

"I'd love it. It's always interesting working with other people and you learn so much. I really admire Mel for what she's doing. To go from the biggest band in the world to a solo career is not an easy thing to do. Somewhere down the road we might get the time to do something, to maybe record a single."

Melanie said:

"I've got a lot of respect for Ronan. He's so young and he's done so much. I think he's fantastic, he even manages Westlife."

Thanks Kathryn.
