Spice Girl Melanie C seems to have taken to motherhood like a duck to water since having baby Scarlet. But don’t expect new solo music next year to be influenced by babies and heightened emotions. She told me at last week’s Hard Rock Calling event in Hyde Park (where we both watched Bruce Springsteen): “I’m a rock girl at heart and it’s not going to be an album full of ballads. It’ll be big rock numbers. I’m starting to write soon.”
But Melanie’s clearly taking it easy getting back into the industry. She reveals: “Becoming a mother is far more powerful than I ever realised it would be. I was never broody like the other Spices. Scarlet’s really enhanced my life but it’s been tricky at times. I wouldn’t want to be rushing to get back to work. So I’m taking lots of time off. It’s been four months and this is my first night out!” And Mel was exceedingly well behaved, peeps!
Log onto www.melaniec.net/dvd to order Melanie’s new LIVE DVD from the Hard Rock Cafe in Manchester. All proceed’s go to charity. If you haven’t seen her live then I hear there may be an opportunity soon – she’ll perform for the first time since baby Scarlet at the end of October at a HUGE gig……but I can’t tell you more as details are still being finalised.
