Hopefully Spice Girls fans truly cherished the group’s 2012 London Olympics closing ceremonies reunion, because it will be their last. In a new issue of Vanity Fair Italy and Spain, former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham opened up about the reunion and quashed any hopes of future performances.
“I won’t ever do it again,” the woman formerly known as Posh Spice said in the issue (via the Daily Mail). “Doing the Olympics was an incredible honor. I was so proud to do it, proud to be British. That was a perfect time to say, ‘That’s great. Thank you to everybody, but no more. Sometimes you’ve got to know when it’s time to leave the party.”
Beckham often speaks fondly of her Spice Girls days, but after the group — which also included Geri Halliwell, Melanie Brown, Melanie Chisholm, and Emma Bunton — officially disbanded in 2000, she quickly moved on. Victoria married soccer star David Beckham in 1999 and the couple has four children — Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 11, Cruz, 8, and Harper, 2.
After serving as the face of Marc Jacobs in 2008, Beckham started her own self-titled — and hugely successful — fashion line, which is now worn around the world by A-List celebrities like Julia Roberts, Kate Winslet, Blake Lively, Beyonce, and Cameron Diaz.
“The Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women,” Beckham mused. “That’s why I do what I do today.”
