>> Q Mel C

Melanie C is on the cover of the September issue of Q Magazine (UK) which features a lengthy and blunt interview with her. This is a very significant interview that reveals a lot of information, and she unloads her true opinion on many things. The following are covered in this interview:

  • Her solo album
  • Recording the third Spice Girls album
  • Her opinion on Victoria's Wedding
  • Her history of drug use
  • Is she a lesbian?
  • Geri Halliwell Split
  • Geri Halliwell's solo album
  • Current fighting between the Spice Girls

Very revealing, interesting interview. Sure to be exaggerated by many news sources due to it's bluntness, read it and know what she fully said before seeing all her clipped quotes made out to be much more offensive then they are. This is perhaps the most honest and open words ever from Melanie, a must read! 

Thanks B Guano / Zila.

>> Punky Spice

Melanie C has shot her first solo video for "Goin' Down" this week in Los Angeles. Apparently she has already ditched her short blonde look as she is trying out different looks to give herself an image outside of Spice Girls. She now has gone back to her dark hair roots with a spikey new haircut and a dog-collar. Interestingly enough she is keeping the skimpy tops and short skirts in her image.

The first single off the album will be "Goin' Down" and will be released in September. The single will feature "Ga Ga" on it as a bonus track, rather then a B-Side. The album is under the Virgin Record label and was produced mostly by Rick Rubin with help from William Orbit. Madonna's influence on the album, if any in reality, is yet unknown.

>> Chili Peppers Song About Mel!

On the official Red Hot Chili Peppers homepage there is an interview with Anthony Keidis (the lead singer who is known to have a connection to Mel C) where the following question is raised:

Is emit remmus about sporty spice?? (it's my fave tune on the album, great tension and intensity build up!! ) thx for your time and lookin forward to seeing you guys live (with my fave funky monk, john!) rock out.

I started writing the lyrics for emit remmus before I ever met sporty, but I finished them after I'd known her a bit, you figure it out. - AK

Here are the lyrics to the song( Thanks Zila):

Emit Remmus

The California animal is a bear
Angeleno but the devil may care
Summer time to talk and swear
Later maybe we could share some air
I'll take you to the movies there
We could walk through Leicester Square
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

Chorus:
London in the summer time
Call me now use the satellite
London in the summer time
Cuss me out and it'll feel all right

Hesitate but don't refuse
The choice was yours but you said choose
The look she used was green and sharp
Stabbed that boy all in his heart
Come what may the cosmos will
Take me up and down on Primrose Hill
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

Chorus

Cuss me out and it'll feel all right
It's all right now
Call me now use the satellite
It's all right
It's all right

Down and out and it'll sound all right
It's all right now
It's all right

The California flower is poppy child
Felony sends me all the gold in your smile
Drift away from anyone you can
Nothing ever goes according to plan
Though I know that every river bends
Time to say hello to snow on the Thames
What could be wetter than
An English girl American man

Chorus
