I don't recall her singing "If U Can't Dance" in it, though...


Oh, this is not the video that i saw anyway thanks for sharing :D, but the other video that im talking about for me was quite rare when i saw it in youtube, because i had never seen a SIYWGF making off and she sang IUCD, it was a part of the video cuz the user was selling the full tape in ebay and a few months later the video was removed dunno why :(

She musta been some girl back in those days :D all those demands she made to Nicki and she didn't have anything behind her - she obviously knew what she wanted. Also never knew she gave all the proceeds from her book (if only i take it) to breast cancer - musta been a huge amount :angel: was great to watch - cheers Andreas.

You're welcome :)

There are 5 parts in total, I'll upload the last three today. In my opinion the documentary gets better after a little while, we've heard most of what's said in part 1 and 2 before.

There are a lot of reasons as to why she "gave up"...

- Obviously she was disappointed that "Scream If You Wanna Go Faster" album and single + "Calling" didn't chart as high as she'd hoped. Which eventually lead to EMI not wanting to release an more singles off "Scream ...".

- As far as I'm aware she fled to L.A. and she was treated for her bulimia around the end of 2001/early 2002. Then she released "Just For The Record" (which again didn't meet the success of "If Only") and she tried out as a judge on Pop Idol in the UK and All American Girl in the US. Plus generally mocking about in LA trying to make a name for herself within Hollywood as an actress/hostess/presenter/entertainer.

- Another thing that never crossed my mind but must have made a huge influence with her relationship with EMI is that EMI underwent big changes in 2002/2003. This happened all over Europe. Lots of people who were very pop-friendly were fired and replaced. A Norwegian pop-artist who did very well around this time, Bertine Zetlitz, were to be launched officially in the UK in early 2003. She said that a lot of people in EMI in the UK and Norway were sacked and this ended up canceling her UK launch. This must have affected Geri when she returned to do "Passion".

- And it was EMI who told Geri to come back from L.A. and get on with her 3rd album. Geri never took initiative to start that, even tho she always claimed she did. But as we can see in the "There's Something About Geri" documentary, she was not in a happy place in 2004, she was obviously under a lot of stress/pressure. Her management was a mess around the time she released "Ride It", she changed at least once if not twice between that and "Desire". When she had finished what would have been "Disco Sister" (working title of her 3rd album) EMI wasn't satisfied and pushed the release date, allowing her to use more time coming up with new songs.

- "There's Something About Geri" aired, didn't help her image/reputation with the british public, the gap between "Ride It" and "Desire" was too big, and when "Desire" flopped EMI pulled the plug on the album, saying they would not finance any promoting once it was released.

Obviously all this lead to the demise of her solo career. No-one can blame her tho. I think she did pretty well in the end. Even tho "Passion" wasn't a success, it's her best album out of the three. I give her credit for actually going through with it even tho she didn't have to.
Which is why I don't think she's working on solo stuff now, rather than for this girl group she's supposedly managing. I may have to eat my words tho, perhaps Sarah Jean knows something, she met Geri in London today apparently.

Thanks so much for uploading this, Andreas - Great little documentary.

She really was a brilliant popstar back in the day wasn't she.

Also, I have been trying to find Geri's Labour Party cameo for years so.. thanks!

Who knows, if MC has success with her next album (which from what i gather is going to be alot more mainstream than her previous albums) it might spur Geri on to think "if she can do it, maybe i can too?"

Thanks for uploading the documentary it was really nice to see something Geri related that was positive (apart from the weight loss thing thing) its been a while since i've heard things from the media be so pro-Geri so was refreshing :)

okay I can't understand how scream if you wanna go faster did not go number 1. I can understand with calling and ride it. but scream is an amazing song. it is short of wannabe or spice up your life for me. it always gets me up! and the amazing video and huge promotion. It is one of my fave solo spice songs ever. I can't accept that it's raining men did number 1 for two weeks and this one didn't.

thank you such a great little documentary. Geri should have milked us the way the spice girls did back in the day and relese dvd's with making of her videos. I would have loved everything. she was such a fun pop fantastic and her videos are maybe a bit tacky today but back on the day they were amazing!
off to see all her videos on youtube!

Thanks! I hope the editor of that documentary was fired though, the captions are annoying. I had to stop it and go back several times because I was actually watching the video and not paying attention to the bottom of the screen.

After watching the whole thing, I feel kind of sad to realise that that was the end of her "successful" career.

I will always love Geri though. She is the ultimate popstar x
