Lol! I just can't picture Geri raving! Haha! That would be hilarious! Don't get me wrong, I love her and she's a great song writer with great personality but we all know she couldn't dance to save her life! So she had adventure with raving at 18 and then she used to be nightclub dancer in Mallorca yet after all those years of "training" she always looked stiff and awkward while performing with Girls! Bless her;)

Her raving-period has been well documented, especially through her own book.

When it comes to Ana Maria: Did you not see the Geri documentary by Molly Dineen?

Ana Maria is adorable, though. Always had been. So down to earth and really really wonderful.

Which I will be able to rip for all of y'all who are outside of the UK. :kiss:

Also Geri has done a interview for BBC news, it's very interesting, she also mentions MOTM
You're working on a solo album right now. How is that going?

I wrote the majority of the album when I was pregnant and it's really coming together now.

When do we get to hear it?

I'm really, really hopeful that it's this side of the summer. That would be really nice. I'd be really happy to share it.

/\ Omg That's amazing little interview, I loved it and that album mention, hope it will work out! But if it's true then I guess it means no Spice Girls/GEM plans whatsoever:/

Thank God! I can't understand why are people waiting for Gem. It's not gonna happen and it was bad idea from the very beginning. I prefer Geris full solo career than any Spice related things. Very happy that we will have this documentary. I have a feeling that this will build up a better image for her in U.K. They building up a startup for her new album!

Whether anything happens with the Spice Girls ever again or not, Geri hasn't had or got a 'full solo career' for 12 years now.

She has recorded 2 albums that have been shelved now, holding onto hope of Geri having a full solo career again is more silly than hoping for a full on Spice reunion.

I'm sure Geri could do both her solo music and a Spice reunion of some kind if it's all timed well.

I'm glad she's still talking about her solo stuff though.

I don't think Geri was talking about MOTM when she said she had an album out.

I guess she meant the new one.

In another interview she talked about "Beautiful Life" and how it won't be on the new álbum cause it leaked so I guess she feels the same about the whole project

What a great documentary I especially loved all the focus on the Schizophonic era in the last fifteen minutes. Nice to see that fabulous era get some recognition again. :music:

Such a nice nostalgia trip. She came across well.

Just finished watching the documentary. I thought it was great. Geri came across brilliantly and it was lovely how they touched on so many things and she spoke more about her solo career than I thought she would.

I thought it was great - covered so much ground in one hour, and lots of Spice Girls and solo career mentions, as you would expect from a film about the 90s.
