Feisty new X Factor judge Mel B has already had a bust-up with boss Simon Cowell – about how she is determined to avoid arguments on the show.

The pair locked horns ­within days of her appointment last week, with Mel – famously known as Scary Spice – ­insisting: “I won’t be your Miss Nasty.”

And with them soon due travel around the UK ­together for auditions, they still ­cannot agree on her role and how she will come across to viewers.

Cowell wants the former Spice Girl to play the villain and act mean to contestants on the forthcoming series of the hit ITV show.

But she has refused, insisting that she won’t be his pantomime baddie.

Defiant Mel, 39, is also ­determined not to be bitchy towards fellow judge Cheryl Cole.

Cowell, 54, had been looking forward to their chemistry producing onscreen fireworks.

But a source close to Mel revealed: “There is no way she is going to do that bitchy thing with anyone and has told Simon so.

“He isn’t happy at all. He had hoped that viewers would flock to watch the ­bust-ups ­between the two women judges.

“Simon wants explosive television. He wants Mel to give people a hard time, to have great fall-outs.

“But as far as she’s concerned it’s a job and she doesn’t want to get herself wrapped up in controversy.

“Mel wants to be a grown up judge, a bit of a female version of Simon.

“She doesn’t want to be unnecessarily mean to anyone.

“She wants to find some good talent. If someone isn’t good enough, then she will tell them. But she is ­determined to stay positive with her feedback.

“Mel knows that she can’t be this mouthy, horrible ­person who whips up the ­controversy, because the X Factor is just too intense. She doesn’t want to be the one everyone is focusing on and can call the evil one.

“She has told Simon all this – but who knows who will win the argument.”

We can also reveal that, although Mel was not Cheryl’s first choice of to join the ­panel of judges, she is now looking forward to working with her.

Sources said that the former Girls Aloud star tried to get music mogul Cowell to sign Aussie singer Sia, 38, who had a No1 hit with Titanium.

But the show boss thought Sia was not well-known enough to be a judge.

Friends of Cheryl have ­revealed she is relieved that Cowell agreed to bring a ­second woman onto the judging table because at one point she looked like being the only one.

Original Girl Power champion Mel B is completing this year’s X Factor judging line-up and she won’t be mincing her words.

The Spice Girl lived up to her scary moniker when she guested on the panel in 2012 and this year she’s sticking around for the series.
Mel said: “Honesty is the best policy – right? And that’s what I’m going to bring more of this year, whether it’s spotting an incredible singer, giving someone a reality check or debating with Simon over who’s got it wrong!

“I can’t wait to get started and find some amazing talent.”

The X Factor creator, Simon Cowell is back on the frontline for the first time since 2010 said: “I am thrilled that Mel B has agreed to be a Judge. I thought she was fantastic as a guest Judge.

“She is feisty, opinionated and, I believe, will be a great mentor.”

Mel joins Simon, Cheryl Cole and Louis Walsh in the search for this year’s X Factor star.

The ever diplomatic Dermot O’Leary returns as host and he could have his work cut out with this year’s Judges.

Cheryl Cole should be scared: very, very scared. Scary Spice Mel B flew over to London from the States on Tuesday for a one–hour meeting with X Factor head honcho, Simon Cowell.

And Mel has virtually guaranteed herself the coveted judging job after successfully pitching for the gig.

Told she will be there to Spice-up (sorry) the panel, Simon sees her relationship with Chezza as key to the whole thing.

Rather than going down the cliched cat-fight road, Si, 54, is going for Girl Power – pitching the pair as friends, not enemies.

But that is not to say Mel won’t stand her ground when necessary…

We’re told: “Mel flew in specially to see Simon and they met in his office at Sony HQ. Melanie has been a front-runner for a long time now, mainly because she did such a good job as a guest judge a couple of years ago. She’s got the necessary experience, has a proven track record in the music industry and knows her stuff.

“They discussed what kind of ‘character’ Mel should play – she was adamant she didn’t want to be bad cop to Cheryl’s good. She told Simon she would be Scary Spice, and have attitude, but not be unnecessarily rude or provocative. Simon sees Mel and Cheryl working well together in a girl power kinda way. He thinks their chemistry will be good and really shake things up.Although Alesha is still in the frame, Mel and Simon have agreed personal terms and everyone is confident the deal will be announced shortly.”

The former Spice Girl, who turns 39 today, flew back home to LA yesterday to start filming the ninth series of America’s Got Talent.

She is due to finish making The Voice Kids in Australia next month.

So she will be free in time to begin filming on the new series of the hit Saturday night ITV show.

The singer has agreed to move back to the UK for the duration of filming so she’s available for all the press and promotional activities.

They burst onto the scene in 1996 hollering ‘girl power’ at the top of their lungs and stamping their own unique brand of pop onto the world with their platform trainers.

And it sounds like Britain’s most famous girl band the Spice Girls might be bringing the old magic back, hinting at yet another reunion tour in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut single, Wannabe.

Mel B aka Scary Spice set tongues wagging while guest co-hosting US morning show LIVE with Kelly and Michael when she didn’t dispel rumours that the gang might be back together.

When asked if she would be touring with the Backstreet Boys, the 38-year-old presenter and Voice Kids coach side stepped the question and said: ‘I think if the Spice Girls went on tour we’d want to have the stage to ourselves.’

Mel B rushed her daughter Angel, six, to the hospital on Wednesday after she discovered the child haemorrhaging blood from her nose.

The former Spice Girls star took the young girl to an emergency room in Los Angeles where she was diagnosed with a suspected heart murmur, according to her mother.

The 38-year-old revealed her daughter’s scary ordeal while co-hosting Australia’s 2DayFM on Wednesday.

She explained on air: ‘This morning’s been a little bit crazy because my six-year-old, Angel, was feeling not very well yesterday, dizzy and had her first ever nose bleed so I kept her off school.

‘And then this morning, [she was] completely disoriented and blood was just funnelling like there was no tomorrow, so I took her to the emergency room.’

The former Scary Spice went on to discuss the diagnostic limbo she is currently in, as her child’s doctors have yet to determine the cause of the bleeding.

Mel said with obvious emotion: ‘She had blood tears and she’s got like a heart murmur thing on, poor little thing.

‘They don’t know [what's wrong]. They’ve done a bunch of blood tests so we’re just waiting for that stuff to come back.’

Adding: ‘They’re thinking it’s either like some kind of a heart murmur or vessel infection or sinus infection. A lot is going on!’

Mel shares Angel with Eddie Murphy.The singer shares three children with her current husband Stephen Belafonte, who she married in 2007.


We hope everything is fine! feel better little Angel!

In this episode, Black Hollywood Live hosts Derrial Christon, Courtney Stewart and Jesse Janedy and interview special guest Mel B. Melanie Brown has never been a shy one, which is evidenced by her vast and ever-expanding list of accomplishments. Best known as Mel B or “Scary Spice” of the Spice Girls, she can also add author, fashion leader, television personality, stage star, philanthropist, entrepreneur and mom to her list of ever expanding credits.

From her early days growing up in Leeds, England, through her years in one of the most defining pop groups of this generation, and through such ventures as becoming a fan favorite on “Dancing With the Stars” in 2007, Mel B has earned her place in the entertainment lexicon. Doing the show earned her a vast and new American fan base with her cool, self-confident dancing style, finishing second in the contest. Mel B is always striving to do something different and always doing with a style that’s all her own.

Currently, Mel B is working diligently on season 8 of the hit NBC show “America’s Got Talent,” joining fellow judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum and host Nick Cannon. As she says, “I take this judging business very seriously.”

Mel B launched her solo career in 1998 with the hit single “I Want You Back,” (featuring Missy Elliott) and marked the first time an individual Spice Girl went to #1 on the U.K. charts. Mel recalls, “This was the first time I’d even considered doing anything by myself. I was on tour with the Spice Girls when Missy Elliott called me up and said ‘Melanie, I’ve got a song for you, will you come and record it with me?’ I checked it with the girls and within a month I was out there, I recorded it in a day, did the video, then came back. She’s a genius!”

Mel B’s brash persona was at the core of the Spice Girls’ global success, racking up worldwide record sales of $55 million, Guinness Book World Records for “Most No. 1 Entries in the UK Charts” and “Most Consecutive No. 1′s for a New Act.” The group’s enduring popularity brought about one of the most successful concert tours of 2007-08 with the reunion trek grossing more than $70 million. The Spice Girls long awaited reunion took place in London at the 2012 XXX Olympic closing ceremony bringing the house down to the 80,000 in attendance and the millions watching around the world.

The British phenomenon’s worldwide acclaim has served Mel B well in a wide variety of ventures. On Broadway at the famed Nederlander Theatre, she starred as “Mimi” in a major production of “Rent” (2004) and also appeared in “The Vagina Monologues” (2002) at the New Ambassador Theatre in London. On the small screen, she hosted the 2008 “Miss Universe Pageant” and has appeared as a special correspondent for the NBC entertainment news shows, “Access Hollywood” and “EXTRA.”

Along the way, she has written a best-selling autobiography “Catch a Fire,” and starred in the wildly popular British soap, “Burn It” on the BBC. Film roles have included “Telling Lies” (2008), “Seat Filler” (2004), LD 50″ (2003) and the inspiring documentary “Mel B: Voodoo Princess (2002) shot in Benin, off the tip of Africa.

Mel B’s career has been based on inspiring people to leave behind their inhibitions and tackle anything and everything that comes their way. She says, “It’s all about feeling confident, listening to yourself, trusting yourself and being in your own power. And that’s what I’m all about.”

She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband, Stephan Belafonte and daughters Phoenix, Angel, Madison and stepdaughter Giselle.

This interview was recorded November 27th, 2013.

It’s hard to have a conversation with Melanie Brown — aka Scary Spice — and not come at her with a barrage of questions about the Spice Girls — especially since everyone’s obsession is still going strong. Brown recently called up Cosmopolitan.com to talk about her latest partnership with Real Water, which benefits breast cancer research, her first single in eight years “For Once In My Life,” and who really gave the Spice Girls their names.

Cosmo: Tell me a little bit about Real Water and how you came to partner up with them for breast cancer research.

Melanie Brown: I actually had my show in Las Vegas called “Peep Show” for a year and a half, and in my contract I had requested for a bunch of bottled water to try and Real Water was one of them. After testing them all out, I told my husband, “this is the one” — it was easy to throw back and I didn’t mind drinking it — so it became my bottled water of choice. It’s a purified, specially-treated, stable, negative-ionized water that is alkalized, so it acts as a powerful antioxidant that hydrates very well on a cellular level.

The reason I partnered with Real Water to raise breast cancer awareness is that in past I auctioned off a lot of stuff in my house and gave the proceeds to Susan G. Komen. Every 74 seconds someone dies from breast cancer and, without going into details, I’ve had my own scare and since I’m all about girl power, this is just something I really feel passionate about. Especially because it’s something that can be caught early on. So, I approached Real Water’s CEO Brent Jones and told him that I wanted to partner with them for the cause. We came up with a campaign called “Get Real, Get Pink,” so for 15 months, from October 2013 to December 31, 2014, with every purchase of the Special Edition pink bottle we created, Real Water will make a donation to support Susan G. Komen’s invaluable work.

Cosmo: That is amazing — congratulations on that amazing collaboration! Also, speaking of congratulations… they’re also in order because you’ve recently released your new single “For Once in My Life.” How do you feel about that?

MB: I haven’t released any music in eight years and I wrote this song late one night three weeks ago after sitting on the judges panel for America’s Got Talent. After watching all of these people perform, I thought, “why am I not using my talent to put more music out there?” So I did… that same night! I wrote the entire song and the shot the video three days later. I wasn’t backed by a major label or anything, so I decided to release it on the internet, because I didn’t want people to have to wait to listen to it. And I’ll be damned if I have to go on a talk show to get people excited about my song and then have them be disappointed.

Cosmo: Speaking of your new single and the video, you have a ton of hair/makeup/costume changes in it. How many days did it take you to complete it?

MB: I did the whole video in nine hours. I’m a big fan of Desperate Housewives, so we shot it on set of Wisteria Lane. My 14 year old and my husband were also in the video.

Cosmo: I love that… gorilla-style shooting. On the subject of costumes and fashion, you’re very eccentric when it comes to yours. Do you have any fashion regrets?

MB: I’m the kind of person that doesn’t have many regrets. In whatever past moment, I felt like I looked really good, so I thought what the heck! (Laughs.)

Cosmo: OK, so I need the Spice Girls skinny. Personally, I want to know how each of your names were chosen for you and who decided who was going to be called what?

MB: It was actually a teeny bopper magazine called Top of the Pops who gave us our names. We were already established as the Spice Girls, but they wrote a story about us and within it they called us each something different. The names stuck, so we went with it!

Cosmo: Who do you keep in touch with the most from the group?

MB: I keep in touch with all of them — always have, always will. I actually just had dinner with Geri two weeks ago and went out to gay bar with Mel C. last weekend. The gays are the best, they’ll tell you whether you look good or not. (Laughs.)

Cosmo: What was your drink of choice out with Geri?

MB: I go back and forth between champagne and pinot noir — but my weekly drink is vodka and soda with a little splash of dirty (olive juice), because I need to get dirty every now and again. (Laughs.)

Cosmo: When you think of Spice Girls, Zig a Zig ah immediately comes to mind. What’s your favorite line from Spice World?

MB: Exactly that! It’s my favorite because it’s the most scandalous.

Cosmo: What does it mean to you guys?

MB: I’m not telling you (Laughs.) — OK, if you meet me when I’m in New York next I’ll tell you.

Cosmo: Deal. Next question: In between the time when you were performing on a regular basis up until you released this new single, did you still dance and sing in your downtime?

MB: Yes! Evey week my kids and I have a dance off. I call it a dance off, but it’s really a plan to get them tired to go to bed. We dance to Rihanna and Miley Cyrus and get down and dirty… in a nice way, of course.

Cosmo: Hopefully your girls won’t read this or your bedtime secret will be out! (Laughs.) OK, last but certainly not least: Will the Spice Girls reunite again?

MB: Of course! I mean, we already did last year at the Olympics, so definitely.

We all know her as “Scary Spice” of the highly successful girl group The Spice Girls, but lately Melanie Brown has been conquering the world of television on shows like America’s Got Talent as well as X Factor overseas.

Now, she’s found her confidence again in music with her new single, “For Once In My Life.” The catchy dance tune, which was released along with a fun music video, is her first in eight years, and she’s ready to get back in the studio.

TheCelebrityCafe.com: You’ve been really busy with hosting lately.

Mel B: You know what, I’m always busy. And I don’t even see it really as work, because everything I do I still really enjoy. I get to bring my kids along and they get to enjoy it, too. It doesn’t feel like work, to be honest.

TCC: First, you did X Factor Australia and in the UK, and now America’s Got Talent,” and I read that you’ve signed on for another season?

Mel B: We’ll see. I don’t even know if we will be brought back yet, but hopefully we will be. I’ve had a really good time doing it.

TCC: The show seems so unpredictable compared to others like X Factor, which only involves singing, but America’s Got Talent really includes everything.

Mel B: It is a little bit of everything, and I think that’s what all of us have really enjoyed about being on this show, because you don’t know what to expect next. You don’t know if you’re going to see a magic act, a danger act, a singer or a dancer, it’s been really interesting. It is one of the only true variety shows that’s still standing.

TCC: You’re such a natural host — you’ve co-hosted The Today Show recently, and generally you are very energetic and fun in interviews. If Saturday Night Live asked you to host, would you consider it?

Mel B: I would love to host Saturday Night Live. That’s right up my street because I’m all for doing skits of myself. I would love to do something like that. You’ve put a little thing in my mind now.

TCC: You’ve had other ventures in television like Dancing With The Stars, of course, but you’re also really involved in the business of being fit— workout DVDs, Jenny Craig after you had your baby, and now you have your partnership with Real Water and Susan G. Komen Foundation. Why was it important for you to get involved with this and show that side of yourself?

Mel B: Well, because I’m a businesswoman at the end of the day. Anything that I actually do drink myself or I do actually use myself, I’m going to be into promoting it. It just so happens there was a window where me and my husband could invest in Real Water when it was doing very poorly many years ago, back in the beginning. It just so happens that everyone loves the water. It has really exploded on to the scene, and rightfully so because it’s really good water; it’s really hydrating. As a singer, you need to find you water that works for you, and that’s the one that works for me and many other people. Robert Downey Jr. ships bottles of it to England whenever he has movies over there (because you can’t get it there yet). I’m really proud of it.

TCC: You’ve stayed really fit and healthy over the years, which seemed to pay off in your new music video. You’re literally on Wisteria Lane (where Desperate Housewives was shot), taking off your clothes, jumping rope, and running, all in one take – something rare in videos these days.

Mel B: It was convenient more than anything because I only had nine hours to shoot the video because I was in the middle of taping America’s Got Talent. That was the perfect location. I’m also a huge fan of Desperate Housewives, who isn’t? And it all made sense — the fact that I’m on my way to work, I’m tired of my mundane job, I rip my clothes off, I get rid of all that boring excess baggage, and I just enjoy myself for once in my life, and that’s the whole premise. It’s all about embracing your inner beauty and just living for yourself.

TCC: The actual song, “For Once In My Life,” seems like the perfect song to describe your return to music, with a girl power theme. The production on it was so fast, and you just put out there instead of doing the press beforehand, but why the hurry?

Mel B: I wasn’t in any hurry at all. One day, I just wanted to do a song that has this feeling. I called up my producer, he happened to be available, we got in the studio that night, we wrote the song, we mastered the song, and a couple of days later I shot the video. I was like, “I don’t want to hold on to this song.” I didn’t want to have to do weeks of promotion. I didn’t want to tell people, “It’s coming out in two weeks.” It’s ready, so I released it. With no promotion whatsoever, and thank God it got the reaction that I’d hoped for. People listened to it because it’s a good song.

TCC: I have noticed that the reaction has been amazing, from other celebrities and fans alike. Did you expect for it to be received so well?

Mel B: You never can expect what people’s reactions are going to be. You can only hope that everyone feels the way that you do. It just so happens that a lot of my celebrity friends were really supportive and they were like, “Damn! You didn’t even tell me you were in the studio.” And they were retweeting it time and time again.

TCC: And many artists as well. Are there any who influence you now in your music?

Mel B: There are so many different artists. I’ve got four girls, so anything from Rihanna to Miley Cyrus — there’s a bunch of people that are killing it. I’m enjoying their music 100 percent.

Luckily, there’s been a bit of room for me right now, and I’m getting a lot of pats on the back, and that’s something I’m really grateful for. I hope it continues, because I don’t want to stop bringing out music. I’m on a roll, and I’m in the studio again in a couple of days, and I just don’t want to stop.

TCC: Do you have an album in sight?

Mel B: I don’t have any pressure on myself. I don’t have a big record label backing me. I’m doing it all myself. I’m not putting pressure on myself, all I know is I want to do music. I cannot wait to get back in the studio and do more and more of it. We’ll see.

TCC: I’ve read that you still consider yourself “Scary Spice,” and that it’s still a huge part of who you are now, but are there ever times where you think that label hinders you as an artist?

Mel B: No, I’m one of five girls in the whole entire world that can honestly say I’m a Spice Girl. I’m still proud of that, and what we’ve achieved as a group—spreading the word of positivity and girl power. I’m really proud to call myself that.
