Who I Am: My Story (Signed Edition plus exclusive to WHSmith bonus content)
https://www.whsmith.co.uk/products/who-i-am...1802793598.html

QUOTE
This edition includes a bonus Q&A section from Melanie, exclusive to WHSmith. For the first time ever, Melanie C, aka Sporty Spice, tells her amazing life story in her own words and gives a full and honest account of what life was really like in the Spice Girls. I never told my story before because I wasn't ready. Now, finally, I am. 25 years ago, The Spice Girls, a girlband that began after answering an advert in the paper, released our first single. 'Wannabe' became a hit and from that moment, my life changed for ever. I was suddenly part of one of the biggest music groups in history, releasing hit after hit, performing to our wonderful fans and spreading the message of Girl Power to the world. It was everything I'd dreamed of growing up, and I've had some incredible times... The BRITs! The movie! Travelling the world playing iconic venues like Madison Square Garden, The O2, Wembley Stadium and The London 2012 Olympics!!! When you're a woman, though, that power can be easily taken away by those around you, whether by pressure, exhaustion, shaming, bullying or a constant feeling like you aren't enough. I have been known as Sporty Spice, Mel C, Melanie C or just plain old Melanie Chisholm, but what you will read within the pages of this book is who I truly am, and how I found peace with that after all these years. I have really enjoyed reminiscing and getting everything down on the page, and, though revisiting some of my darkest times was hard, I hope this book can be inspiring and empowering as well as entertaining and give you a bit of a laugh.



How exciting, Melanie is finally releasing an autobiography w00t.gif

Given that her relationship with all of the girls seems very good now, I'm not sure what we should expect when it comes to how she recounts particular moments... because we know she wasn't always on the best of terms with some of them. Even though the above description sounds promising, my gut feeling is that she'll mostly focus on the positives with the girls. I mean, I'd be very surprised if she goes into depth about 2016 when it was GEM vs. her, and they briefly weren't on great terms with each other. Anyway, we will see in September!

Aww, too bad she didn't write this while she was in a fight with the girls as I'm sure it would've made for a more exciting reading. kink.gif

Finally! This should be a good read, although I hope we get some new stories as I feel like I have heard her in so many podcasts over the years that we already know a lot about her background, Spice and solo time.

Great title as well. Suits the book and nice to refer back to one of her songs.

Great news!

Can we presume that her next album will be out around September?
I can see Melanie C part 2 and the book working well together.

So cannot wait to read this! I want a signed one but I wonder if she will do some signings for it rather than buying a pre signed one?

wub.gif Will be really interesting to read her perspective of the Spice phenomenon and of course everything since.

Canít wait wish it was being released sooner.

Hoping for insights into her career as a solo artist. I would find her dealings with record labels and execs really interesting. And how she has dealt with those stresses and strains, highs and lows.

Would prefer if it just had the one title - Who I Am is perfect. Doesn't need 'my story'.

Good for her. It is quite surprising she would do it but I guess any check is a check ah!

In a way, I doubt there will be super revealing stuff we dont already know so I will probably skip buying it unless there are some proper juicy stuff in it.

I hope she is successful with it though.

It is defo going to be a different autobiography than the one we might have got say in 2005 or 2017. The girls have seemingly finally all come to a mutuak respect for each other and Melanie is earning nice money from the Spice Girls to rock the boat too much bow.

I feel like the most interesting bits will be her talking about her solo career and not having to worry about being warts and all about her split from Virgin.

I am more interested to read about these to be fair, don't get me wrong will be interesting to see a different perspective of Spice Girls but I've read that story several times in the other girls autobiographies, the David Sinclair one the countless interviews etc.

There are a number of things that I hope she addresses. Yes, the split from Virgin (and the general behind-the-scenes conflict behind the Reason album) could be really interesting. I've also wondered if she might address the subject of Goin Down. The rumor mill back in 1999 was that the song was about Robbie Williams. I haven't found much out there about Robbie and Goin Down since then, though. Has Mel herself ever explicitly said it's about Robbie? Anyway. Could be a juicy tidbit...if it honestly is about him.
