It’s been reported that Victoria Beckham was never really comfortable being in the Spice Girls.
The band’s former manager, Simon Fuller, claims that she didn’t quite find herself until she left music behind for fashion and family. He recently said at the Business Innovation Awards in L.A., “Victoria, coming out of the Spice Girls, being married to David Beckham, launched a solo career. She never felt comfortable. Even in the Spice Girls — it was great fun, she was in the world’s biggest group for two or three years — but she didn’t feel comfortable.” Simon continued, “She could sing pretty well, she could dance pretty well, but she always felt uncomfortable. When the Spice Girls broke up, she had a few songs as a solo artist but she wasn’t happy and she said to me ‘Simon, I just don’t want to do music any more. What do you think I should do?’ It was one of those things that you get this kind of clarity of vision. I’ve known Victoria since she was 18 and her passion in life was always clothes. She was called Posh Spice because she always wore the best dresses and she knew everything about clothes. I said ‘You should be in fashion. You should be a designer.’
