Ginger snapped

In 1998, Geri Halliwell unexpectedly quit the Spice Girls, saying she was totally exhausted; the rest of the group continued without her for a couple of years, then went on “indefinite hiatus.”

In addition to her occasional Spice duties, Halliwell has written a series of children’s books about nine-year-old Ugenia Lavender, whom she described as her “inner brat.” Geri turns 40 on Monday.
