Melanie Chisholm is voicing her displeasure with organizers of last month’s Brit Awards for neglecting to mention her old group The Spice Girls in their roundup of the best records of the past 25 years. “I feel there should have been some recognition for the Spice Girls,” Mel C complained to The Sun. “We flew the flag for Britain around the world in the ’90s and we achieved a hell of a lot. I don’t think the Spice Girls are celebrated as much as we should be. We championed British pop worldwide.”
Melanie Chisholm Battled Depression During Spice Girl Days
March 11, 2005 – The Mirror reports that Melanie Chisholm has revealed the problems she endured during her time with the Spice Girls. “When things were really crazy and I was having a few problems, I isolated myself from friends and family and that was a lonely time,” the 31-year-old singer said. “I tried numerous kinds of antidepressants… I had an eating disorder as well.” While life is better for her with boyfriend Thomas Starr and her new album ‘Beautiful Intentions’, she still worries about future bouts with depression. “I’m always a little bit afraid that my depression could come back,” she said.
