If I were born with the name of Melanie Chisholm
, I'm sure that I would have changed it the first chance that I got, whether it was to shorten the name to Mel C or Sporty Spice. Anything that didn't make my last name sound like "Jizz-um." Of course, I'm most likely mispronouncing that in my head, but being that it's Canadian Thanksgiving and all, I'm sure you'll forgive me. These pics were taken over the summer of the former Spice Girl, as a part of the Body of Art project that photographer John Kelly was doing for Cancer Research in the UK. They seem to have coincided with The Spice Girls having a mini-reunion at the closing ceremonies for the 2012 Summer Olympics but I will give her this - the one of the group that most dudes said was the ugliest certainly has the sportiest and most fit body. I like that she looks firm and toned. That's a hard body type to maintain and I'm giving her props for being one of the few from the band to do something that can flash skin but be for a better reason than just earning herself more money. Props Chisholm.
