What a constructive answer!
You obviously think it does matter otherwise you wouldn't have posted.

FYI - DOZE is what you do when you sleep.....

Quite a few singers sell their albums on QVC these days.. Its just another outlet for sales. I don't see it as a failure ..I see it as clever marketing .. Quite a lot of people go on these channels near Xmas for gift ideas

It's the picture of the spice girls at the bottom of the article which caught my eye - obviously Victoria's pose doesn't stretch to touching anyone else!!

She's always thought the SG's were all about her and nothing's changed.

It's a bit desperate imo. Radio stations won't play it and as it just seems to be an album of reworked show tunes, I'm not surprised she's been reduced to flogging it on QVC. I do like Mel - she and Emma Bunton seem the most normal of the SG's, so I think it's a bit sad to see her doing this.

Well seeing as she's the only one that can actually sing it WAS always about her.

She's never had a Top 20 album in 9 years, what do you expect?

Peter Andre did QVC last year. I suppose in these austere times its best to reach as many peeps as you can.

There was a DS thread about it.

Saltydog's comment was referring to Victoria, not Mel C - or do you think Victoria was the only one who could sing?

She's by no means the only relatively high-profile singer to be flogging their latest offerings on QVC. The music industry has changed and you've got to take what you can, especially somebody like Mel who will be seen as 'older' when compared with all the tweenie singers and X Factor groups.

It may not be a particularly illustrious audience but at least she's realistic enough to give it a go. Couldn't imagine Queen Victoria daring to 'lower' herself to such a level!!

In the last couple of years, QVC have had loads of singers on flogging an album:-

Mel C
Susan Boyle
Ill Divo
Ronan Keating
Steps
Military Wives
Michael Ball
Daniel O'Donnell
Elaine Paige
Noah Stewart - No me either
Katherine Jenkins
The Soldiers
Some Fishermen from Cornwall I think
and loads more that I can't remember.

Then you've got loads of celebs flogging Skincare and Jewellery

Lulu
Arlene Phillips
Andrea Mclean

At the end of the day, it all comes down to cold hard cash.
If it wasn't worth there while, they wouldn't do it. They must be raking it in.

It is a shame. She IS a great singer with a great voice. I believe she has her own record label in which case CDs have been pressed and need to be sold!

A couple of years ago I nearly bought a silver curb chain necklace from Paul Ross. Then I came to my senses.

Hey, if QVC is good enough for Some Fishermen from Cornwall, it must be good enough for Mel C

God, they still do the old "there's not much stock" or/and "while we still have stock left" type of lines on QVC in a psychological attempt to panic the buyer into making a rush decision. The bubble was burst on those old ploys years ago! Those sort of tricks must still work with QVC's audience.

John Barrowman as well - an album and a skincare range.

A day sitting on a sofa talking about yourself isn't exactly difficult work. Flogging your tat on QVC is only one step up from the Daily Mail giving it away.
