Stop right now! Victoria Beckham revealed more juicy secrets about her days as a Spice Girl during a discussion in London on Thursday, May 5.

“[Producers] used to turn [my mic] off and just let the others sing,” Beckham, 42, said at the Vogue 100: A Century of Style at the National Portrait Gallery exhibit according to The Telegraph. “I got the last laugh, and now my mic is well — and truly on, finally.”

While her mic was turned off at moments, the massively successful fashion designer monopolized the girl group’s insane fashion closet. Well, at least the high-end designer duds.

“I was always the one that loved fashion,” Beckham recalled at the event. “It was quite a result for me because the girls always used to get their clothes for free because they were crap. And so, there was a lot of budget for me to have my little Gucci dress.” She eventually went on to create a luxe label of her own, which is now a go-to line for celebs.

Along with the panel on Thursday, Beckham also enjoyed the honor of being featured in the Vogue 100 exhibit. The former pop singer shared a photo of herself and her eldest son, Brooklyn, in front of her portrait, which features the beauty with David Beckham.

“Thank u to everyone who came to hear me speak tonight,” she wrote. “This Juergen Teller shot of myself and David brings back memories!! I was pregnant with Brooklyn!!! I love u @brooklynbeckham @davidbeckham.”

The teen, who was at the gallery to support his mom on Thursday, posted the same image on his Instagram, and wrote: “So proud listening to my mum speak tonight.”

The 17-year-old aspiring photographer made headlines of his own on Friday, May 6, after his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Chloë Grace Moretz, finally confirmed their relationship on social media. He is one of four Beckham kids, including Romeo, 13, Cruz, 11, and Harper, 4.
