Break out the Union Jack thigh-high platform boots and hot pants, kiddos: UK National Treasure The Spice Girls will be performing at the Closing Ceremonies of the 2012 London Olympics!
My teenage 1996 heart is leaping with joy!
It has been confirmed that along with The Spice Girls, chronic public Wham-mer and frosted-lipped George Michael will perform, as well as Take That, a band or person that I have never actually heard of. It is sure to be a classy fucking time and I will be there with bells on, singing at the top of my lungs Wannabe at my tv, just like every other woman in the United States who was a teenager during their reign. And if you ask your girlfriends if they will do this exact thing and they say no, they are goddamned liars.
GOTTA GET WIT MY FRREEE-EEEEEHHH-EEEHHHNNNDDSSSS
And if the Olympics isn’t enough to satiate your Spice fix, they’ve got a musical. Seriously.
I see ya. Hold tight. It gets better. The musical was written by none other than Jennifer Saunders – creator of Absolutely Fabulous. It’s everything I love about the UK minus the Rolling Stones, Prince Harry, Fish & Chips, & Strongbow. EVERYTHING.
