Rap star Eminem has confessed to a crush on ex-Spice Girl Geri Halliwell.
The rapper's revelation came at the recnt MTV Movie Awards during which the hip-hop superstar poked fun at The Spice Girls with his raunchy performance at the show.
Eminem appeared on stage at Los Angeles' Shine Auditorium with huge life-size puppets of former Spices Mel B and Emma Bunton.
But once he finished performing the 32-year-old was only interested in talking about one of The Spice Girls - Geri.
An insider is quoted by Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "Backstage, someone asked him what he thought about The Spice Girls reuniting for Live 8.
"He said it was cool but that the event shouldn't be focused solely on that.
"He then said he was hoping to meet 'the red-headed' one when he flies to the UK to play shows in September. He is going to call her when he gets to Britain."
