Happy Birthday Geri Halliwell

Recommended Posts

Born on August 6,1972 Geraldine (Geri) Estelle Halliwell, A British singer songwriter who rose to fame in the mid 90s as a member of The Spice Girls, Nicknamed Ginger Spice for her flaming red hair, and very opinionated attitude.


Geri was a no holds bar kinda girl, She is seen as the image of Cool Britannia, which was seen as a liberal era in great Britain which after years of Conservative politics, the arrival of the labour party, and Tony Blair being prime minister, made being  British cool again in the eyes of the youth, and what seemed to be the biggest representation of British music, a girl group of 5 girls with attitude, in February of 97, just as the Spice girls topped the US charts with wannabe, geri wearing a tea towel, draped with a Britisg flag in the front, seemed to be the main image of this British generation X era.


I did research the 90s Brits compared to today was a bit anarchy, anything can happen attitude vs. The classy affair it represents today, most of the 90s British pop culture is basically off this era of the Brits which is a far shadow of the version today. 


Geri is and was seen as the boss and the brainchild of the Spice girls, her solo debut album is also seen by a majority of Spice fans as the proper spice girls 3rd album (sorry Holler).


Here's a clip where emma says most of 97 was because of Geri's goals..


You also see Victoria and Mel B shade her during the Forever era, saying they're much better off without her, which is untrue as Melanie C told Zane Lowe of Apple Music. Geri leaving the Spice girls kinda really was the end of the Spice girls, Our single Goodbye was seen by critics and fans as our farewell song and it probably should have ended right with Goodbye. And we shouldn't have had done Forever, cos we sounded like every other girl group with that album, it really wasn't a Spice girls album at all..


Geri's biggest hit is her cover of The weather girls it's raining men, which the original failed in the UK, where Geri's cover went in at number one as it should.  


Happy Birthday Geri Halliwell.  Even though most of the Spice girls fans hate the women you became today, calling you a former shadow of the girl they fell in love with, and even declared adopting your husband's last name is the least girl power statement ever.
