Blake Lively has revealed an unlikely obsession: the Spice Girls

Blake Lively has revealed an unlikely obsession: the Spice Girls.

During her exclusive interview with Marie Claire, the 25-year-old Gossip Girl spilled the beans on the moment she fulfilled a lifelong dream – to meet the Spice Girls.

BLAKE LIVELY FOR MARIE CLAIRE

She said: ‘When I was a child I probably should have been medicated about my obsession with The Spice Girls. I had the Buffalo shoes, a customised Baby Spice necklace –when I say custom made it was made out of plastic from the local mall – and a union jack dress.

‘Recently, I was in London and I stayed in my hotel most of the time because it was raining. But on the last night I went out for dinner. After I’d arrived, I was told a bunch of paparazzi had showed up. I thought, “that’s so weird. I’ve been left alone most of my stay – why are they bothering me now?”

‘But then someone told me it was because Victoria Beckham was in the same restaurant. I was like, OK, that makes sense. She’s a friend of mine and I would have said hello but I decided I didn’t want to bother her. Until that person then told me that she was there with I was like, I need to say hello!’

‘So, there you have it; I got to hang out with The Spice Girls. It was my lifelong dream. That’s it now. I can quit.’
