Melanie C - (Self-titled)

Discussion in 'Pop & Justice' started by Music City Queen, Jun 22, 2019.

  1. I picked up the book on Kindle and never finished reading anything so fast than I did it. It was an eye-opening read which confirms a lot of my suspicions about her mental well-being around the time Forever was released, especially that Holler performance at the EMAs. I also believe it was the group's final performance together before the first hiatus?

  2. The way my flight was the only flight leaving to NYC from this god-forsaken hurricane-ridden state today. Can’t wait to see Mel C, it will be my first time seeing a Spice Girl. Hopefully the emotional breakdown is not too severe.

  3. This is the biggest media coverage for a solo project she's had since probably the Northern Star days - I guess Who I Am the single would have also had similar exposure if her trip hadn't been cancelled due to bloody Covid! Fingers crossed she'll gather this much interest again for her next album.

  4. If she/her team were smart they'd have something ready to go the moment the book promo was finished.

  5. She was so sweet tonight! Loved her conversation, and she took time with every fan to take photos. There were hundreds of us there to support! Love this woman. A childhood dream 26 years later.

  6. I went also and it was great to meet some nice fans around me!

    They were really rushing the pics along so I quickly said 'Justice for "The Sea"!' which she agreed with!

  7. We were closer to the back rows of the crowd, so towards the end they let us take our time, which was cool. She said she loved my jacket.

  8. Justice for The Sea indeed.

    She's come across very well in all these interviews and it's lovely to see her profile raised in this way. Let's just hope they don't let it all dissipate before launching new music.
  9. Last night was so amazing! It really was a 26 year old dream coming true. Melanie C was so lovely. The conversation was great and the interaction with the fans and the Q&A was awesome too. We got to take a quick picture with her and I showed her my first Spice Girl shirt which I got when I was 6 and now can’t even put a hand in and she loved it.

    I was such a crying mess leaving barnes and nobles!

  11. Credit where it's due, she has promo-ed this book HARD. What a promo schedule she's been on the past few weeks! Would be lovely to see her rewarded with a bestseller on both sides of the Atlantic.

  12. I got my signed copy today. So happy.
    Not only has she been working hard, but she has been so open and vulnerable in interviews. It must be hard to constantly have to relive the difficult times of your life dealing with depression and eating disorders. I would find that incredibly difficult. I admire her strength and open heart.

  13. She is and always was so pro and present at the same time in everything she did. She is such an icon in that sense and a big inspiration personally with her overall attitude, work ethic and style/appearence too. I always believed she would be bigger as solo when the stars aligned because she always gave 10/10 of her. And at some point that totally pays off in my opinion. What she achieved in last a couple of years is sort of like a tastement to that and I believe she can be even bigger in time (in terms of respect and overall coverage/public perception). (In my eyes she is sort of like an alternative universe Madonna in terms of drive and work ethic.)
  14. Decided to nab a copy of this yesterday. Got the only signed one in the store. Her pen was clearly on it's last legs by the time she got round to this one.

  15. Any juicy tidbits on any of the other spice girls? I would imagine not because she wants to do a tour for the 25th anniversary so doesnt want to say anything too controversial, i reckon if she released this book straight after spice girls first took a break there would have been controversial comments.

  16. She's diplomatic and she's right to do so. She does say Emma had everything she wanted when she wasn't allowed boyfriends or some of the other girls had restrictions from Simon / 19.

    I need Emma's book now.
