Jonathan Thompson of Living Abroad magazine spoke with Melanie Blatt and asked the former All Saints star about their then rivalry with the Spice Girls. “I hated them,” Blatt admitted. “That’s just me though, not the others I, Melanie Blatt, hated the Spice Girls.” Asked why, Mel responded, “I was just totally against what they stood for. It was all too corporate for me. I was very militant about my music at the time, and they only seemed to be interested in the fame and money. Somebody played us their first song before they released it and we just laughed. We were like, ‘Ha ha! That’s never going to work, it sounds like a nursery rhyme.’ Goes to show how much we knew.”
