Spice Girls Make "Headlines," Bend Over For Westlife

The Spice Girls have announced that their new single, "Headlines," will get a U.K. release on November 19. I betcha that title's one of them irony things, ain't it? The old MILFs have apparently also pushed the release of their greatest hits back a week, since it was originally to compete with Westlife's new pile of sod, Back Home.

Those Irish boys can't make an interesting song to save their miserable lives, but they sure got pretty mouths...

Meanwhile, Melanie C is making the video for her new single, "This Time," as a tribute to late director Tim Royes, who was killed at age 42 when he was hit by a car in New York City two months ago. Sugababes' "About You Now" clip is also a tribute to Royes, as he directed their videos for "Easy" and "Red Dress."

Here's the full videography for Tim Royes, as taken off Wikipedia:

    That Westlife cover looks strange.

    It's like they took a pic of Shayne, Nicky and the other bloke and then remembered, 'didn't we forget someone? Oh wait, there's also Mark.'
    Then someone paintshopped him into the cover...
