Beckham told to 'stick to fashion'

The former Spice Girls star Victoria Beckham has been advised by Dane Bowers – who she collaborated with on the 2000 True Steppers single ‘Out of Your Mind’ – not to return to the pop industry as her work as a designer is much better than her musical talent.

Dane said: “I think she should stick to fashion design but she’d probably say that herself. The whole fashion thing is definitely where her future lies.”

However, the 31-year-old singer insisted Victoria has more vocal ability than she is given credit for.

He added: “She’s the first person to say that she’s no Mariah Carey but she can hold a tune. You don’t make it as far as the Spice Girls did if you can’t sing at all”.

Dane – who shot to fame as a member of Another Level- - has no intention of staying away from the world of music.

With a comeback single ‘All She Needs’ to be released on Sunday (04.07.10), the singer admitted that it is more difficult the second time around.

He revealed “People expect more from you when you’re well known, often they’re just waiting for you to fail. If you’re a new artist it’s a bit easier as people wait to see what you’re like”.
