Victoria Beckham Reveals Lip Syncing with Spice Girls

Maybe it's Victoria Beckham's unflinching reserve, but Posh Spice always seemed like one of the Spice Girls more likely to give it to you straight. Now she's gone and shattered your sweet, childlike naïveté about live pop music, revealing that during Spice Girls performances, her mic was off.

We're not talking a Milli Vanilli/The Lizzie McGuire Movie–type scandal with someone else singing behind the scenes; it's just that as a Spice Girl, Beckham's talent was ... mild. "They used to turn [my mic] off and just let the others sing," she explained. "Luckily because I used to wear heels, I just used to jig about a bit and I got away with it, but it never came easily ... I was always much more reserved than the other girls."

Man, you've gotta admire Beckham's ability to steer any topic of conversation towards the virtues of high fashion.
