Our favorite musicians give us great performances in the studio and on stage, but backstage glimpses and behind-the-scenes facts tell us even more. They are human beings who sometimes keep it real and other times behave like divas. Some of their behavior is relatable and other things they do will blow your mind. In the end, it's a loop that tells you more about the music you already love -- take a look at these scenes of performers living everyday lives, and enjoy these tales of what happened backstage and stories behind the moments that made them pop stars and rock gods.

Which Two Spice Girls Had A Fling?

Part of the formula of the Spice Girls' success was doing things differently than girl groups that had preceded them. Rather than wear matching outfits, they decided to express their individuality, and the different, often conflicting fashion choices helped cultivate their five separate identities. Geri Halliwell tells a story that in the early days of the group, they all wore matching Adidas t-shirts for a performance and it just wasn't working.

Though they were known for being somewhat outrageous and free-spirited in their personal behavior, but Mel B.'s 2019 revelation was a bombshell: that she and Geri Halliwell had a one-off sexual encounter. Mel B. (that's Scary Spice) spilled the beans to Piers Morgan on his Life Stories show as the group members were all gearing up for their reunion tour:

It’s a fact. It just happened and we just giggled at it and that was it.

Halliwell (Ginger Spice, whose last name is Horner), said the story was untrue, and tension ensued, with some back-and-forth sniping in interviews. The Girls seemed to put it behind them once the tour got underway.
