Emma Bunton reveals the Spice Girls changed lyric to be LGBT-inclusive

British singer Emma Bunton, member of The Spice Girls, poses on the red carpet on arrival for the BRIT Awards 2019 in London on February 20, 2019.

Emma Bunton has revealed that the Spice Girls changed a lyric in hit song “2 Become 1” to make it more LGBT-friendly.

Baby Spice talked to Gay Times about how the line “any deal that we endeavour/boys and girls feel good together” turned into “once again if we endeavour/love will bring us back together.”

The lyric change was incorporated into the Spice Girls’ single release, music video and stage performances. Bunton recalled: “We changed the lyrics in a hotel.

“Thank goodness we’re living at a time where everyone is supporting each other so much more now.”

“We were travelling and we were like, ‘Absolutely, it needs to be changed.’ We felt like it needed to be more inclusive.”

She added that she was thankful for her LGBT+ fans, saying: “You notice that support—it’s just incredible.

“Thank goodness we’re living at a time where everyone is supporting each other so much more now. I feel so thankful to them—when I write or when I perform, it feels on such a more open, different level.

“It’s so much more inclusive and special.”

Spice Girls to tour following lesbian sex claim

Last month, ahead of the Spice Girls’ UK tour, Geri Halliwell rejected Mel B’s claim that the pair had a sexual encounter, calling it “disappointing.”

The denial came after it emerged that Mel B implied she had sex with Halliwell—now Geri Horner—during an interview with Piers Morgan for his Life Stories show.

But Horner knocked back the claim that she engaged in a sexual fling with Mel B at the height of the Spice Girls’ fame.

In a statement given to the MailOnline, a spokesperson said: “It has been very disappointing to read about all these rumours again, especially on Mother’s Day of all days.
