>> New Spice Video Shot

In a small interview after her performance on Saturday's TOTP (see below story), Melanie C said:

"I was nervous before going on stage, but there was so much love from the crowd when I went on that I had a brilliant time. There is so much energy that you just lose yourself. Life for me is fantastic right now, everyone's doing their solo projects at the moment. We've also just finished the third Spice Girls album and shot the next video. The album should be out in maybe October or November."

>> Fit Not Fat!

Sporty Spice Mel C performed at Top Of The Pops (UK) on Saturday. She was one of the few there that sang her song "Never Be The Same Again" live. The most attention grabbing part of her performance was her t-shirt, which fired a message back at the media. The front of the shirt read "Tabloids, Kiss My...", and the back said "Fat Ass" with the word Fat crossed out and replaced with the word "Fit". Mel was firing back at the media for making such a big deal about a small amount of weight she gained for a short period of time which she has now lost.

>> J Not Mel's?

::Rumour Warning::

Many people from Brazil have been sending in reports that J from boy group Five was on MTV Brazil and this dialogue took place:

VJ: I want to know if you have girlfriends?

J: No, I don't have a girlfriend.

VJ: But yesterday I saw an interview with Mel C, and she said that you two are dating.

J: No, No we are not dating.

VJ: And she also said that Ricky Martin is pretty cute, but is no J.

J: Really?! Well, what can I say...

It's got a rumour warning because there has been no official press coverage of this, only individual reports.

Thanks everyone from Brazil who sent it in.

>> Mel C: I'm NOT Gay

In an interview for the next issue of Heat Magazine(UK), Melanie C talks about accutions of her being gay and about her recent weight gain. About accusations of being gay and having her personal assistant Chai Ling Yau as a partner Mel said:

"If I was gay I'd admit it. People keep asking me when I'm going to come out. But I'm never going to come out because I'm not gay. So stop it! I don't really care what people say about me. But if I was gay I couldn't live lie. I'm too honest a person, I would admit to it. I've had worse things said about me in the paper. It's not even a bad thing, it's just not true. I think it's always been funny before, but it's gone beyond a joke this time. Ying is a professional woman, she just wants to do her job, and she does it well. All this innuendo about us is lies."

Mel also explained her recent slight bit of weight gain:

"The reason I've put on weight is simply because I've not been training ashard as normal. I've been going out, I've been drinking, I've been eating junk food, I've been enjoying life... and I've put on a bit of weight."

Mel also says she is back in the gym working out, back to her normal routine.
