Goodbye girls

With millions at stake, it must have been one hell of a bust-up that split the Spice Girls. But that's female friendships for you, says Lucy O'Brien

Girl Power goes out of fashion in Spiceworld

Geri's departure has failed to move the Spice Girls' fickle young fans.

Letter: Gazza: the moral

Sir: Three events in recent days have filled me with joy. First you reported that Damien Hirst was old hat; then that one of the Spice Girls had quit; and finally that Gazza has been dropped from England's World Cup team. Is this the beginning of the end of Laddism (and Girl Power)? Could there be a backlash emerging against dumbing down and the encouragement of yob culture we have suffered since Thatcherism and now with Blairism?

Letter: Musical disaster

Sir: It explains an awful lot if the Spice Girls were signed to Virgin by their Accident & Emergency department, as Rosie Millard relates (Comment, 1 June).

Rock: Spice Girls show new dimensions

THREE YEARS, two albums and six No 1 singles into a career that has seen them become the world's most successful pop group, the Spice Girls got around to putting on their first concert in England. And it was the same as everything else they've done - their records, their film, their books, their magazines. It was never stunning, it was sometimes not much cop at all, but overall it was much better than it might have been. In the Manchester Nynex Arena on Tuesday, there were metal staircases and three big video screens and a number of costume changes worthy of Diana Ross. Boyzone, Eternal and East 17 should go along and see how it's done.
