The Spice Girls were nearly named after a lesbian porn site, Victoria reveals

Victoria Beckham has revealed the Spice Girls nearly had a very different name, one that nearly forced them to share the same brand with a lesbian porn site.

The singer-turned-fashion desginer has said they were originally going to go for ‘The Spicey Girls’.

But after some quick googling (or whatever was their preferred search engine in the mid-90s), they realised that might not have been the best idea.

‘In the beginning, we were going to be The Spicey Girls, but then we realised there was a porn site called the Spicey Girls,’ Beckham told Fern Mallis at New York City’s 92Y Fashion Icons event.

‘That wouldn’t have been good!’

Beckham also paid tribute to her previous career.

‘I’m really proud of what I achieved with them,’ she said. ‘We were just five girls who weren’t all that great individually, but together, we were pretty great!’
