Throughout the course of her storied profession, Beyonce has received numerous awards and inspired generations of girls to be pleased with who they’re. But when Beyonce was first beginning out as a singer, she additionally had various highly effective ladies to look as much as — specifically the Spice Girls. Apparently, Beyonce took inspiration from the UK women group when she was coming into her personal profession.
Victoria Beckham, previously referred to as Posh Spice, just lately recounted the time she met Beyonce a couple of years in the past. During their dialog, Beyonce instructed Beckham simply how a lot the Spice Girls influenced her.
Speaking on the Dear Media podcast Breaking Beauty, Beckham recalled her interplay with Beyonce:
“I think it’s about accepting who you are, and that’s what the Spice Girls were always about. It’s okay to be different; let’s not try and change who we are, let’s celebrate who we are. Let’s celebrate the fact that we’re all different, which is why inclusivity is so important to us. When talk about Spice Girls, and I don’t talk about it much anymore, but what I remember when you were talking to me about it and how we inspired lots of young women. I met Beyonce a few years ago, and she actually said to me, ‘It was the Spice Girls that inspired me and made me want to do what I do and made me proud to be a girl and proud to be who I am. And when someone like Beyonce, who is so iconic and was such a strong woman, says that she was inspired by the Spice Girls, I think that’s quite something.”
