Mel B visits Google to discuss her career journey, her memoir “Brutally Honest”, and her experiences as a person of mixed heritage.

Melanie Brown is one-fifth of the most successful girl band on Earth, the Spice Girls. As ‘Scary Spice’, she became one of the most recognisable women in the world. She went on to carve out a global career as a television entertainer, theater performer, and movie actress.

Since the Spice Girls split in 2000, Melanie went on to carve a new career as a host of television shows. Consistently voted ‘most popular’ judge on shows from America’s Got Talent to The X Factor UK, she embraced a whole new generation to become one of the most recognised faces on television. She has appeared in London’s West End and on Broadway in Rent and most recently as Roxie Hart in Chicago, winning massive acclaim from audiences. Mel B was awarded an MBE by the Queen for her services to survivors of domestic abuse.
