Mother insisted Victoria Beckham train to teach dance

ArrayLos Angeles, June 5 (IANS) Singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham trained to be a dance teacher after her mother insisted she should have something to fall back on if fame didn’t work out.

Victoria said: “I was never going to be a model. I studied dance until I was qualified to be a dance teacher. My mom said I had to have something to fall back on if it all went wrong. So if it does go wrong, I can always be a tap-dancing teacher.”

But fame happened for Spice Girls Victoria, Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton although the band nearly made a faux pas when choosing their name.

“In the beginning, we were going to be The Spicy Girls, but then we realised there was a porn site called the Spicy Girls. That wouldn’t have been good,” she said.

The 41-year-old fashion designer also revealed the girl band acted like the nicknames which they were famous for.

She said: “Posh was given to us by a British teen magazine, but we were already acting like our names. Mel B really did dress scary, always in leopard print. Emma really was Baby; she always wore pigtails and those bloody awful platform shoes! But I’m still very close to all of those girls.

“I’m really proud of what I achieved with them. We were just five girls who weren’t all that great individually, but together, we were pretty great.”
