“Always remember your mantra,” she shared, “‘Work hard and be kind.’ Do you have this embroidered on a pillow yet?”
The 46-year-old star then took a moment to discuss her time as a Spice Girl, and how Elton John played a role in her departure.
“Remember years ago,” she began, “watching your dear friend Elton John on stage in Las Vegas. He performed ‘Tiny Dancer,’ as if it were the first time, and you realized this was like oxygen for him.”
“It was a life-changing moment—while singing and dancing was fun for you, it wasn’t your passion,” she confessed. “That day, you started your quest to uncover your own dreams. It was time to step away from being a Spice Girl. For the first time, you were venturing out on your own, and it was terrifying.”
