weird at first but I'm used to it now
David: are you the next best superstar? How does iut feel to be famous?
Of course being Successful is great, and people have always been very kind to me in public. It can be a pain and it's very surreal.
Rafael Martinez: Hello Melanie! I was wondering, what song do you find the most relaxing when performing on stage or when you're feelin' kinda tired? Lots of love!
I have to admit my favourite bits are when I'm jumping around and rockin' out. I am really enjoying perorming Here and Now, it's a bit of a moment for me.
Shelley Mullen: What was the first gig you ever went to and did you enjoy it?
I started to go and see my mum gigs when I was really young.I was so proud of her. My first gig on my own was Madonna's Girlie Show at Wembley. It was amazing, very inspiring.

Wow I am really out of date, aren't I! sorry chaps!! Mary McCartney directed the video(Paul's daughter) she is a wonderful photographer, we worked together on the album and promo shots. It was shot in a big old house in sussex that used to belong to Led Zeppeiln!
Andrew: I know this is earlly days to ask this but, do u plan to make music for the rest of your life i mean breaks for babys ect... cos without you in the music world id be so sad! :)
I love making and performing music and I'm going to keep doing it as long as I can.
GombeTo: Hi Melanie! My question is why did you choose the rockier sound instead making songz like your most successful 'I Turn To You' and 'Never Be The Same Again'?
After doing lots of live shows I realised what I enjoyed more and what the audiences responded well to. I'm a rock lover, it felt like a natural progression
Samir: do you have any plans to come in any contry from the ex jugoslavia (slovenia,croatia,bosnia and herzegovina,serbia or Macedonia)(or balkan peninsula,whatever)?
we have no plans just yet but I want to.My trips to countries really depend on the success of the record there so tell all your friends how great it is!
Angie Hung: Hey Melanie! When I get angry, I just let go by listening to music or jumping around in my living room to music. What do you do? Do you go for runs? or do you have a punching bag? Do you take it out on thomas (hee hee)? All the best with the new album! Love Angie
Performing all my angry songs on stage is the best way of getting rid of it, excersise is pretty good to and has benefits!!
Kelby: Hey Melanie! I was wondering why you haven't been releasing material here in the USA. There are loads of fans here and we all would love you to come back to us? Is there a reason why you aren't over here?
Hi Kelby, how are ya. I love America and I really miss working over there.At the moment we don't have a deal there, but we're working on it, and I'll let you know if we have any news. I think this album would do brilliantly so I'm keeping my fingers crossed x
hayley: not really a question ... but hope you're planning another tour as i cant make it!!! damn it *!*?!! be there in spirit though haha .. see ya next time round lol XXXXXX
I'm doing lots of live shows and festivals around Europe through the summer, I have three Scandinavian shows in September and we are still finalizing an Austrailian and South East Asia trip. So I'm rather busy, but i'll let you know about any more dates x x
Carlos G: What type of songs do you prefer to release as singles, rock songs, ballads, dance tracks, pop tunes?
I've had fun releasing rocky stuff, dance, pop and ballads, but I think rock and acoustic tracks are my fave x
Pedrohmc: How does it feel hen you turn on the radio and suddenly it starts playing your own song??
Great, I still get very excited
Pedrohmc: Dont you get bored of being asked about the spice girls, even when you are such a stabilized solo singer? In those times, do you regret the past you had with the girls?
I have no regrets and yes I do get bored!
Pedrohmc: Hi Melanie... You already have 3 great albums released. In the proccess of making each album, wich one did you feel more confident about and why?
I have to admit I have a lot of confidence in Beautiful Intentions, I love all three but I think this is my best x
Pedrohmc: Hi Melanie! I was wondering, since you have a new album to promote, you have to sing mostly the new songs in the stage. From the old songs you used to sing, wich ones do you miss performing? I really miss you singing on stage Feel The Su, Why and Home, they are really emotional and live were amazing! PS: Just heard Beautiful Intentions and your new stuff is absolutely brilliant, it rocks! Congratulations!
I miss perfoming Why the most x
Eric: If you had to record a duet with one of the other Spice Girls, wich one will you choose and why?
