BuzzJack Music Forum _ Spice Girls and Solo _ Emma Bunton General Discussion

Posted by: Pipa Jun 7 2006, 07:28 PM

Well, this isn't really news, nor is it that important, but seeing that there is a lack of information about Rachel at the moment, we decided to post this little bit for you.

Emma Bunton, former Spice Girls star who plans to record a third UK album and release it sometime in 2007, has posted a message on her official website stating that she met Rachel Stevens during her tile in LA. The two, who have previously met and been photographed together, supposedly 'hung out' as well. The message is as follows:

Just wanted to drop you a quick line as I've been having a busy time of it - honest! I've recently been in LA for work which was a total blast, I have to say. I was there just to have a few preliminary work meetings but the best thing was that I was able to have a bit of time off - I went to see American Idol which I'm a big fan of - and I also caught up with a lot of mates while I was there: I hung out with Rachel Stevens but I also got to see Geri and Melanie B too.

Ooh, lucky Emma, lucky Rachel!

Nah, more lucky Emma. tongue.gif

Thanks for posting,

It's a shame we never saw Emma in the AI audience. If she was there the same night as Rachel, she must have been close to her if they've been hanging out together...unless they went on different nights.

Yeah unsure.gif
Well maybe she was there but she wasn't filmed or something wacko.gif tongue.gif

I'd Be Shocked If I Won!
It had been a quiet couple of years for Emma Bunton, but now suddenly she’s everywhere. As well as being one of the favourites to win Strictly Come Dancing, Emma released this year’s Children In Need single and she’s just moved in with her boyfriend of eight years, Jade Jones. We caught up with her to discuss her Strictly schedule and the chemistry between her and partner Darren Bennett.

"People said to me at the beginning, 'If you do Strictly Come Dancing, it's going to be hard work', but I didn't think it would be this hard," Emma admitted. "But the main thing is, I am loving it. It's been quite hard work but it's really weird because I love it. Even Jade knows I'm usually terrible in the mornings and can't get up, but these days, I'm jumping out of bed. "I think it's because I'm loving every second of it. And when I love something, it's easy to get to it."

She acknowledges though that the dancing has been more difficult than she expected. "The training is very hard work. Bless Darren, he's very patient with me,” she said of her dance partner. “The thing is, I pick something up but tend to forget it very quickly, and he has to keep going over it with me.

"He's become a little bit harder with me over the last couple of weeks, because I haven't had the time to give him, so I think he's getting a bit frustrated with me. But I'm trying my best and we do work well together. There is a chemistry between us - he's just so easy to get on with. We're also the same star sign so we're quite similar people as well."

Emma, one of the favourites to win the show, decided to take part in the dancing competition because she fancied a challenge. "At the beginning of the year, I turned 30 and said to myself, 'I'm going to give myself challenges this year'. I'm not a trained dancer by any means," she said.
"I've done little bits of dancing with the [Spice] girls, which is very simple stuff, but this is completely different from anything else that I've done. There's something so special about dancing with a partner and being taught a new skill.

"I'd be quite shocked if I won," Emma added. "I'm just taking each day as it comes. We've got to learn a new dance every week, sometimes two dances, so I'm not thinking that far ahead - even though Darren probably is!"

While the dance training means working closely with Darren on those sexy moves, she says that Jade isn't fazed by her spending so much time with another man. "Oh no, he's not jealous at all. Darren is married to Lilia on the show, and Jade's come down to a few practices, along with Lilia. We both wanted to take up the tango after watching Strictly last year, and I tried to find a tango teacher to teach us. So before I even got asked to do the show, we were already really keen to take up some sort of dancing - we just didn't get round to it.

"Now whenever I get home, Jade's always asking me what I've learnt today. I always say that I'm too tired but he wants me to show him. So I've been teaching him little bits and he loves it."

She needs to win if she wants to release another song me thinks

Posted by: thisispop Dec 8 2006, 02:42 PM

She stands no chance of winning.

In the last four weeks the judges have voted her Top out of all the dancers in 3 out of the 4 weeks, but the public have voted her bottom four weeks on the trot.

When it gets to the final three contestants it will be a straightforward public vote, so there is no way she will win.

The same thing happened last year with Zoe Ball. Remember teenage girls will not vote for another pretty female. Especially a successful one worth c. £10 million.

They would much rather vote for the "fit" England Rugby player Matt Dawson; the "swoonsome" England Test cricketer Mark Rampakash or the 17 year-old Eastenders actress (who's contract is not going to be renewed = the sympathy vote) Louise Lytton.

^^ And also she's the worst dancer wink.gif

Mark and Karen have it going ON! They deserve it

Posted by: val4jadan Dec 8 2006, 03:07 PM

She's a good dancer, but I think the winner will either be Mark or Louisa.

Posted by: Aly Dec 8 2006, 04:16 PM

It could do wonders for her album if she won.

That is your opinion.

But why have the "expert panel of judges" have given her the top marks in the 3 out of the last 4 weeks? rolleyes.gif

Let's face it, the British public like underdog losers, we don't like winners.

It's true ... but I've been ballroom and latin dancing for the last 2 years and, although I don't claim to be anywhere near as good or qualified, I do know SOMETHING (especially how beginners dance and improve) it's totally clear to me that (in my opinion wink.gif) emma is the worst dancer. IMO, the judges couldn't be more wrong in their marks. smile.gif

Don't get me wrong ... as a person and musician, I adore Emma. But as a dancer, she's not the best

imo wink.gif

oops, double post!

Posted by: wingnut..johnny boi Dec 10 2006, 02:35 PM

well louisa went out last night so she outa the running. emma is one of the best dancers on there but the public just dont give her the votes. and the whole point of the show is for the lowest combined score of judges and public vote, goes out. and if she gets the lowest overral then she deserves to go out. i am a fan btw, but thats just the way it is.

Posted by: Feel_the_Fever Dec 10 2006, 02:36 PM

i was sure louisa and emma would be the final 2

Posted by: slowdown73 Dec 15 2006, 02:17 PM

Apparantly she is re-releasing her album after the next single, "You're all I need to know".

Quite strange, but maybe the record company will re-promote it because its got lost in the christmas market. I wonder if there will be any new tracks on it? I've bought the album and it contains 2 b sides from the single.

I'm not sure about new songs though I expect there will be. Also, I don't think 'Something Tells Me Somethings Gonna Happen Tonight' will be on it as I think that fact that there will 2 or 3 covers on the album put people off a bit as well as it getting lost in the christmas market.

Emma Bunton announces pregnancy
BBC Entertainment News

Former Spice Girl Emma Bunton has announced she is expecting a baby with her partner, Jade Jones, a former member of boy band Damage.
The 31-year-old, who came third in BBC One show Strictly Come Dancing, has been dating Jones, 27, for eight years.

Bunton, commonly known as Baby Spice, said: "I guess I will be handing over the 'Baby' tag now to a deserving little new owner."

It is thought the baby is due sometime in the summer.

In a statement, the couple said: "We are so happy, it's unbelievable news. What a great start to the New Year."

Bunton recently revealed she been had diagnosed with endometriosis, a condition which can make it difficult to conceive.

In a magazine interview last month, she said: "I went back to my doctors recently, and they seemed to think it was easing off, which would make it hopeful for me to have children."

Bunton recently reached number three in the charts with her own version of the '60s classic Downtown, for Children in Need.

Bunton is not the only pregnant Spice Girl, as Mel B is expecting her second child in the spring.
She says the father is actor Eddie Murphy - but he has demanded paternity tests.

Geri Halliwell gave birth to her first child, Bluebell Madonna, eight months ago and Victoria Beckham has three children, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz.

Please pass your thoughts on Baby Spice becoming a mum?

I'm delighted for Emma and to be honest, I feel for some reason this may help her single 'All I Need To Know' to do a bit better in the charts than what has been predicted. Really hope it does.

Posted by: Andrewy Jan 27 2007, 02:50 AM

I'm so chuffed for her!! I have no idea why, but I think she'll be an awesome mum!!

Emma Bunton is to join the panel of ITV's Loose Women for a week.

The former Spice Girl will offer her opinion on celebrity gossip and news pieces on the show from December 1 to December 5.

"I am very excited about joining Loose Women for a week. I was a guest recently and I can't wait to get back and have my say just like the others," she said.

The Loose Women panel alternates from a list of stars including Carol McGiffin, Jane McDonald and Sherrie Hewson.

Interesting. Is she trying to get into the TV presenting business because she also filled in on Richard & Judy as well

Emma was just on the Royal Variety Performance introducing one of the acts!


Posted by: This Time Feb 4 2009, 09:20 PM

Feb 02, 2009 - Spice Girl Emma Bunton is to co-host Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston whilst regular co-presenter Harriet Scott gets married.

Emma will join Jamie for almost three weeks from Monday 16th February to Wednesday 4th March on the London station, between 6am and 9am.

Emma Bunton said: Anyone that knows me will realize that it would take something very special to get me out of bed at 4am! I just never thought it would be Jamie Theakston!

Jamie Theakston said: "We're all so surprised that Harriet has found a fella and the shock that we've also been able to get someone as talented, fun and gorgeous as Emma has nearly finished me off.

And finally, whilst we are publishing quotes, here's one from Heart 106.2s Programme Director Adrian Stewart: We were looking for the perfect partnership while Harriet took time off to get married and Emma fits the bill. Shes great fun, lives life to the full and is a hard-working mum someone our typical Heart listener can relate, she knows how to keep Jamie Theakston in check!

Nice to see her doing something!

A thread to post random news & chat about Emma!

Posted by: Jay ☆ Feb 5 2018, 03:21 AM

Daily Star:

Spice girls to release NEW MUSIC as part of their comeback but it won't be as a group
GOOD news Spice Girls fans - the pop superstars WILL release new music as part of their surprise comeback.

The bad news, however, is that it won't be as a group.

I'm told Emma Bunton has secretly been working on solo material in the hope of making a pop comeback.

It's 11 years since the Heart Radio DJ released All I Need To Know, which was her last solo single.

But my source claimed: "Emma has been secretly working on new music.

"She really enjoyed being back in the studio with Geri and Mel B when they were originally planning the Spice Girls comeback, under the alias of GEM. Although that project never saw the light of day it made her realise how much she misses singing.

"Seeing former Eternal singer Louise Redknapp performing again has also been a motivating factor.

"It's very early days but a solo project is under way."

Emma enjoyed seven top 10 singles as a solo star, including 2001's No.1 What Took You So Long.

Posted by: Michael Andrew Feb 5 2018, 10:29 AM

I was almost very excited. But then I realised there's no quote from Emma herself.

She's on radio all the time. So if there was anything to say, I think we'd have heard it from her.

How I wish it was true.

On a side note, Louise was fantastic at Scala the other week.

Emma is the guest judge on tonight's episode of Drag Race All Stars! The challenge is I assume Spice Girls themed as they are "auditioning" for a group called Kitty Girls. Praying for a Spice Girls lip sync song also *.*

It's on at 2:30am Comedy Central (right after the US airing) if anyone's up then to watch or wants to record biggrin.gif

I wish the Take My Breath Away single could be added - and to Spotify as well. I prefer the single mix to the album version!

I also wish her Vevo page would upload her missing videos. sad.gif We're Not Gonna Sleep Tonight, Free Me, Maybe, I'll Be There and Crickets Sing for Anamaria. They're only available on unofficial accounts!
