Melanie Chisolm experienced the kind of fame you just couldn’t prepare for. Known around the world as Sporty Spice, for a period of time she was one of the most famous people in the world, in one of the most popular groups in history, the Spice Girls.

For a working class girl from the north west of England, the success, the money and the pressure were a lot to take in. As she says in this interview it’s hard to quantify exactly how the experience of being so famous at such a young age changed her.

Since 1999 Melanie has also been a solo artist, and she recently released two new singles called "Who I Am" and "Blame It On Me". "Who I Am" in particular is an anthem of self-acceptance, in which Melanie sings “When I look in the mirror/I finally like what I see”.

In this interview Melanie talks about her journey to that point, from growing up in England to surviving fame and finding a path to happiness.
