9780755310623: Catch a Fire: The Autobiography

It's all here: the council estate childhood, the formation of the Spice Girls, the early months being groomed for stardom, the subsequent global domination, Geri's departure, the marriage - and acrimonious divorce - to Jimmy Gulzar, the birth of Phoenix Chi, the solo career and the leap into TV presenting. Not bad for the rebellious, mixed-up girl from Leeds who is still only in her mid-20s. Born to a working-class mixed-race family from Leeds (her mother took extra work cleaning toilets to pay for her dancing lessons), Melanie B grew up feeling different from her schoolfriends. Her hyperactive energy was channelled into drama school, and in 1994 the Spice Girls were formed. The rest is history.

About the Author:

Born to a working-class mixed-race family from Leeds (her mother took extra work cleaning toilets to pay for her dancing lessons), Melanie B grew up feeling different from her schoolfriends. Her hyperactive energy was channelled into drama school, and in 1994, as the story famously goes, the Spice Girls were formed. The rest is history...

Review:

It's all here: the council estate childhood; the formation of the Spice Girls; the early months of being groomed for stardom; the subsequent global domination; Geri's departure; the marriage - and acrimonious divorce - to the strangely passive Jimmy Gulzar; the birth of Phoenix Chi (unlikely names being de rigueur for pop-star sprogs); the solo career and the move into TV presenting. As few people in the Western world have not heard of Melanie B, the in-your-face loudmouth who is a member of one of the most popular bands of all time, interest is guaranteed. Is she too young to tell her own story? Perhaps - but the fans will ensure healthy sales (before the Spice Girls join all the other pass pop groups cluttering up the remainder bins).
