Lily Allen wants to be a wannabe, for real. Allen recent discussed a fantasy she had for this year’s Brit Awards to team up with several of her fellow divas to perform a tribute to The Spice Girls. Though the award show came and went already, we beg Lily to follow through with what we think is a brilliant idea.
Allen explained “I’d be Posh, Adele would be Ginger, Duffy would be Baby, Leona [Lewis] would be Scary and Amy [Winehouse] would be Sporty… She was always the one with the best voice.” Allen had hoped the quintet would be able to recreate the Spice Girls’ first huge hit “Wannabe” onstage. Just the idea of watching Amy Winehouse attempt a backflip in a sports bra makes us tingle with glee. Lily, please don’t give up on this idea, we would give anything to have this happen! Maybe you can bring it up again for the 2010 awards.
Check out Lily’s pals Leona Lewis and Adele on “VH1 Divas,” which will air live on Sept. 17 at 9PM EST. Until then, get your divas fix by reading the full VH1 Divas press release, following the VH1 Divas Twitter and watching videos by the artists in the lineup.
