Victoria Beckham has revealed that the Spice Girls inspired Beyonce to become the legendary recording artist she is today.

The ex-Spice Girls singer, 47, declared that she previously met Beyonce a few years back, who told her the band's message of girl power had a huge impact on her as a woman.

Posh Spice told Dear Media's Breaking Beauty podcast: "I met Beyoncé a few years ago, and she actually said to me, 'IIt was the Spice Girls that inspired me and made me want to do what I do and made me proud to be a girl and proud to be who I am'."

She continued: "And when someone like Beyoncé, who is so iconic and was such a strong woman, says that she was inspired by the Spice Girls, I think that’s quite something."

Beyonce, who shot to fame in the 1990s as the lead singer of Destiny's Child, has gone on to become one of the world's best-selling artists, selling a whopping 118 million records worldwide.

At the Grammy Awards this year, Beyonce made history by becoming the most awarded female recording artist of all time, winning four new awards which brings her total to an incredible 28.

Her massive list of artist awards also includes MTV Video Music Awards (26), and BET Awards (31), and she has also been named by Billboard (magazine) as the highest-earning black musician of all time.

And last year, the Single Ladies singer even made her way onto Time's list of 100 women who defined the last century.

Posh also said that the Spice Girls was always about 'accepting who you are' and that it was 'okay to be different', a message which happened to inspire the one and only Beyonce.

She said: "Let's not try and change who we are. Let's celebrate who we are. Let's celebrate the fact that we're all different, which is why inclusivity is so important to us, you know, I mean, when we talk about Spice Girls."

Chatting about the clothes she wore whilst in the band, she added: "We wore what made us feel good. And we weren't worried is this the newest, coolest, and we set trends because there was no fear."

The Spice Girls split up back in 2000 after rising to success in 1996 when Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell) decided to quit the group in 1998, but the band have reunited in recent years.

However, Victoria decided not to join the group for Spice World in 2019, the latest Spice Girls tour which sold out across thirteen dates and had been the band's first performance together since the 2012 Olympics closing ceremony.

Posh Spice also noted that her four children will often say "Mum, you were so cool" when looking at old paparazzi photos of her, to which she jokingly commented: "Oh, wow. Does that mean I'm not now?".

In terms of her life, Victoria also asserted: "I think that it's a journey and I never look back at any old pictures and cringe. I look back at all those pictures and I just think, you know what, there's something so nice about when you're young, you shouldn't care too much.

"You should feel free to experiment, have fun, figuring out what works and what doesn't work. Try out different trends accept who you are and embrace who you are.

"And be kind and be kind to other girls out there because everybody feels a little bit insecure and not fight against that".
