Watkins added: "I wasn't an year-old girl. They always had this weird ability to come up with phrases that you'd never heard of. You couldn't force your musical ideas upon them. From the onset, the Spice Girls established a strict 50—50 split of the publishing royalties between them and their songwriting collaborators.
As with their vocal arrangements, they were also adamant on maintaining parity between themselves in the songwriting credits. The deal between themselves was a strict five-way split on their share of the songwriting royalties on all songs irrespective of what any one member of the group had or had not contributed to any particular song.
Apart from ease of administration, this was also a symbolic expression of the unity which was so much part and parcel of the Spice philosophy. Sinclair identified Halliwell as a major source of ideas for the Spice Girls' songs, including many of the concepts and starting points for the group's songs. He felt that all five members had contributed equally to the songwriting. In the group's first ever interview in MayHalliwell told Music Week : "We want to bring some of the glamour back to pop, like Madonna had when we were growing up.
Pop is about Think Twice - DJ Primetime* - Run Like Hell (Cassette) and escapism, but there's so much bullshit around at the moment. The Spice Girls have also been credited with paving the way for the girl groups and female pop singers that have come after them. As managers and record labels scrambled to find the next Spice Girls, around 20 new girl groups were launched in the UK infollowed by another 35 the next Think Twice - DJ Primetime* - Run Like Hell (Cassette).
In all, the focused, consistent presentation of "girl power" formed the centrepiece of their appeal as a band. In keeping with their "girl power" manifesto, the Spice Girls' songs have been praised for their "genuinely empowering messages about friendship and sisterhood,"  which set them apart from the typical love songs their pop contemporaries were singing.
The video, which premiered on YouTube and ran in movie theatres internationally,  featured British girl group M. OCanadian " viral sensation " Taylor Hatala, Nigerian-British singer Seyi Shay and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez lip-syncing to the song in various locations around the world.
At the 43rd People's Choice Awards inBlake Lively dedicated her "Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress" award to "girl power" in her acceptance speech; she credited the Spice Girls, saying: "What was so neat about them was that they're all so distinctly different, and they were women, and they owned who they were, and that was my first introduction into girl power.
The term " Cool Britannia " became prominent in the media in the s and represented the new political and social climate that was emerging with the advances made by New Labour and the new UK Prime Minister Tony Blair. Coming out of a period of 18 years of Conservative government, Tony Blair and New Labour were seen as young, cool and appealing, a driving force in giving Britain a feeling of euphoria and optimism. Although by no means responsible for the onset of "Cool Britannia", the arrival of the Spice Girls added to the new image and re-branding of Britain, and underlined the growing world popularity of British, rather than American, pop music.
This fact was underlined at the Brit Awards ; the group won two awards  but it was Halliwell's iconic red, white and blue Union Jack mini-dress that appeared in media coverage around the world,  becoming an enduring image of "Cool Britannia".
The Spice Girls' image was deliberately aimed at young girls, an audience of formidable size and potential. Instrumental to their range of appeal within this demographic was their five distinct personalities and styles, which encouraged fans to identify with one member or another. This rejection of a homogeneous group identity was a stark departure from previous groups such as the Beatles and the Supremes   and the Spice Girls model has since been used to style other pop groups such as One Direction.
The band's image was inadvertently bolstered by the nicknames bestowed on them by the British press. After a lunch with the Spice Girls in the wake of "Wannabe " 's release, Peter Loraine, the then-editor of Top of the Pops magazine, and his editorial staff decided to devise nicknames for each member of the group based on their personalities. Loraine explained, "In the magazine we used silly language and came up with nicknames all the time so it came naturally to give them names that would be used by the magazine and its readers; it was never meant to be adopted globally.
Victoria was 'Posh Spice', because she was wearing a Gucci -style mini dress and seemed pouty and reserved. Emma wore pigtails and sucked a lollipop, so obviously she was 'Baby Spice'. Mel C spent the whole time leaping around in her tracksuitso we called her 'Sporty Spice'. I named Mel B 'Scary Spice' because she was so shouty. And Geri was 'Ginger Spice', simply because of her hair.
Not much thought went into that one. In a interview, Chisholm explained that the Spice Girls' image came about unintentionally when, after initially trying to coordinate their outfits as was expected of girl groups at the time, the group decided to just dress in their own individual styles.
According to Chisholm, they "never thought too much more of Think Twice - DJ Primetime* - Run Like Hell (Cassette) until after "Wannabe" was released and the press gave them their nicknames. The group embraced the nicknames and grew into caricatures of themselves, which Chisholm said was "like a protection mechanism because it was like putting on this armour of being this, this character, rather than it actually being you.
Each Spice Girl adopted a distinct, over-the-top trademark style that served as an extension of her public persona. The Spice Girls are considered style icons of the s; their image and styles becoming inextricably tied to the band's identity. At the height of Spicemania, the Spice Girls were involved in a prolific marketing phenomenon. Similarly, the North American leg of their Spiceworld Tour introduced a whole new concert revenue stream when it became the first time advertising was used in a pop concert.
In his analysis of the group's enduring influence on 21st-century popular cultureJohn Mckie of the BBC observed that while other stars had used brand endorsements in the past, "the Spice brand was the first to propel the success of the band".

Much as the Spice Girls broke and still retain records for chart-climbing in their prime, they remain an anomaly of the pop machine—still household-name famous two decades on.
Perhaps it was their original prowess, or the press's continued fascination with them, but the Spice Girls remain a cultural touchstone while their contemporaries The Spice Girls have been labelled the biggest pop phenomenon of the s  due to the international record sales,  iconic symbolism, global cultural influence   and apparent omnipresence they held during the decade.

TV special, The Reasons the '90s Ruled. Some sources, especially those in the United Kingdom, regard the Spice Girls as gay icons. During the ceremony, Halliwell's breasts were exposed twice, causing controversy.
The stories of their encounters with other celebrities also became fodder for the press;   for example, in Mayat The Prince's Trust 21st-anniversary concert, Brown and Halliwell breached royal protocol when they planted kisses on Prince Charles 's cheeks, leaving it covered with lipstick, and later, Halliwell told him "you're very sexy" and also pinched his bottom.
