Emma Bunton

Emma Bunton doesn't think there can ever be another girl band like the Spice Girls - because of pedophiles.The 30-year-old singer was nicknamed Baby Spice in the five-piece group and had a child like image, complete with short skirts and pigtails. Emma, who is currently appearing on British TV dance contest 'Strictly Come Dancing', doesn't think another band could get away with using such an image because of the apparent rise of pedophilia in modern society. In an interview with the Guardian Weekend magazine, she said: "That's the thing, isn't it? It's just a shame. I don't know if it could happen. Even with how we were, it was so innocent. At the time I never thought of the whole pedophilia thing." When asked if she realised how ambiguous her Baby Spice image was, Emma replied: "Oh my God! I didn't. Not at all. But now... it's true, of course. I just think, oh my God, because I was obviously dressed up in tiny skirts. But I never thought anything of it. Faux lesbian Russian pop duo t.A.T.u caused outrage in 2003 when they appeared in the video for their hit single 'All The Things She Said' dressed as schoolgirls and shared a passionate same-sex kiss. Critics at the time said the promo actively tried to appeal to pedophiles.
