Victoria Beckham admits she hated her Posh nickname, it 'wasn't her first choice' and she tried to 'distance herself'

VICTORIA Beckham has paid tribute to her Posh Spice nickname with a new lipstick – but admitted that it wasn't her first choice.

The singer-turned-designer, 46, shot to fame in the mid 90s as a fifth of the iconic girl group.

Despite distancing herself from the Posh name for the best part of the last 20 years, Victoria is now embracing it for her latest makeup release.

Writing on Instagram, she said: "I was given the name Posh in 1996 over lunch with Peter Loraine of Top of The Pops Magazine and the rest of the Spice Girls.

"I can't say it would have been my first choice, but ultimately grew into it on my own terms. I was young and shy, and being Posh helped me find my style and confidence, and my voice."

After a brief solo career, Victoria turned her attention to fashion and wanted to make it on her own terms, without the Posh tag following her.

She said the nickname had an "unwavering momentum of its own and she wanted to find her own direction.

Explaining why she's brought it back, Victoria continued: "Now, years later I look back on that formative time with appreciation. Posh forever changed the course of my life, opening the doors for me to go after my dreams.

"This week I celebrate Posh with the launch of Posh lipstick. It is deeply personal – lipstick has always given me confidence when I needed it and extra spice when I already had it.

"Each shade is inspired by a specific memory, and whilst the moments may have been my own, the energy and emotion is shared by us all.

"This is an ode to our lifelong journeys of self discovery as women.

"Posh is back."

Despite her willingness to reclaim the famous moniker, Victoria is still reluctant to link up with Spice Girls Geri Horner, Mel B, Mel C and Emma Bunton for a 25th anniversary reunion tour.

Earlier this month The Sun revealed Victoria is “exceedingly unlikely” to be involved.

A source said: “The Spice Girls were hoping to hit the road in 2021 to mark their big anniversary but now it’s not possible because of the pandemic.

“They’re all in touch weekly and are trying to come up with new ideas on how they can do something special to mark the big day."
