Spice Girls on stage at 50?

LONDON, England -- Watch out for Old Spice. "Baby Spice" Emma Bunton says the top girl group will still be on stage in their fifties.

"We have always said we'd have Zimmer frames and be saying 'I'll tell you what I want, what I really, really want'," she said on British breakfast station GMTV.

Bunton said the band, which has sold 38 million albums worldwide since 1995, hoped to follow in the footsteps of the Rolling Stones and still perform together in their fifties.

The quartet have all branched out in solo careers, sparking persistent rumours that they were about to split up.

Melanie Chisholm, Sporty Spice, provoked pop uproar last month when she said she had no plans to keep working with Britain's biggest pop phenomenon since The Beatles.

But Bunton insisted: "We love working together. We love writing and touring together. We just thought we'd take this year to do our own things."
