Former Spice Girl, Sporty Spice (Mel C) went through a period of ‘depression’ after she started as a solo singer.
The woman who perfectly summed up the hardships of sleeping rough by writing "I couldn’t live without my phone/but you don’t even have a home", blames the media’s portrayal of women for making her feel a bit low.
The constant speculation about her weight and sexuality made her question her worth so much she even stopped making music. And thats a bad thing. She says…
"It’s a tough world whoever you are, but particularly for women. Being in the public eye as a woman magnifies the impact of those specifics, and a lot of media attention was focused on my particular issues, body image chief among them. As a result, I suffered depression, which robs you of everything – self-respect, motivation, inspiration, the lot."
Jesus Christ. Women, eh?
