Victoria Beckham reflected on her reason for leaving The Spice Girls in a letter to her future self, published in British Vogue on Monday (January 11th).
She wrote, “Remember years ago, watching your dear friend Elton John on stage in Las Vegas. He performed 'Tiny Dancer,' as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him.”
The 46-year-old continued, “It was a life-changing moment—while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn't your passion. That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams. It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl. For the first time, you were venturing out on your own, and it was terrifying.”
She launched her fashion label in 2008 and her beauty brand, Victoria Beckham Beauty, in 2019.
