The Spice Girls have changed some lyrics in their hit 2 Become 1 ahead of their upcoming reunion tour to make the song more LGBTQ inclusive.
In an interview with Gay Times, Emma Bunton revealed that she and band mates Geri Horner, Mel C and Mel B made the decision to change the line ''any deal that we endeavour/boys and girls feel good together'' to ''once again if we endeavour/love will bring us back together''.
''We changed the lyrics in a hotel. We were travelling and we were like, 'Absolutely, it needs to be changed.' We felt like it needed to be more inclusive," the 43-year-old singer said.
Bunton continued to thank her LGBTQ fans for their continued support and says it feels ''more open'' than ever before while performing.
''You notice that support - it's just incredible. Thank goodness we're living at a time where everyone is supporting each other so much more now.
"I feel so thankful to them - when I write or when I perform, it feels on such a more open, different level. It's so much more inclusive and special.''
