Mel B has attempted to explain her decision to kiss herself in her latest music video.

The former Spice Girl opens her latest video, 'For Once In My Life', by stripping down to her underwear on her way to work and taking a few seconds out to kiss another Mel B.

The singer said the kiss was her own idea and thinks it’s “symbolic”. 

 “[The song is] all about forgetting what people think of you and living your life in that moment,” she said of her first solo single in eight years.

“That’s why in the video I start off in the business suit and just rip it off – that’s, like, symbolic.

“I’m sure we’ve all kissed a girlfriend when we’ve got a little bit tipsy, who knows?,” she explained. 

Scary Spice Mel also spoke about a potential reunion with the band’s four girls, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Geri Halliwell and Mel C.

She said she is the “loudmouth” that bullies the others into co-ordinating their schedules.

“We did it for the Olympics. Never say never,” she said.

Mel B has just finished her stint as a judge on ‘America’s Got Talent’, but promises that she’s not slowing down.

“I don't know how I make it all work, but I just do,” she said.

“My music has been accepted so well, so that's kind of taking off, so I'm going to back out on the road," she said.
