The Spice Girl Victoria Beckham - who has been given a catwalk strut instead of her own solo singing spot during the band's reunion tour - has defended her vocal ability.
Victoria said: "I'm no Mariah Carey, but I can sing.
"It became very obvious from the start that I was never going to be the best singer or the best dancer or the best actress. I was never a 'natural'. You know, I've never been that good at anything, to be completely honest."
The 33-year-old mother - who has three sons, eight-year-old Brooklyn, five-year-old Romeo and two-year-old Cruz with husband David Beckham - revealed she agreed to the Spice Girls reunion because she wanted her sons to see her as a star.
She said: "I wanted my children to see that Mummy was a pop star. It was the last opportunity for them to stand in a crowd full of people screaming for the Spice Girls."
Victoria also revealed the family's move to Los Angeles - when soccer star David was signed to LA Galaxy - has made her children happier.
She added to Elle magazine: "Going to school here, the kids are much happier. Their confidence level has gone through the roof. I'm very proud to be British, but here it's a lot more relaxed. It's the happiest as a family that we've ever been. I just love America."
