Victoria Beckham talked about not joining the Spice Girls meeting, saying that her only focus is "empowering women through fashion."
Former teammates of Mel B, Mel C, Emma Bunton and Geri Horner, excited fans last week when they transformed into their Spice Girl alias to announce a six-day tour.
But Beckham, a.k.a Posh Spice, will not join the meeting after moving from music to focus on the family and his fashion career.
When addressing her decision in the People's Choice Awards, Beckham told E: "It always tries to empower women, making women feel the best and strongest version of herself.
"With Spice Girls it started as a girl of power. And now it's about empowering women through fashion."
Later, Beckham suggested that he would not even be appearing on stage on some of the dates despite the hope of Mel B.
When playing notes of the speech, the star joked: "I hung up my microphone for a while and I am scared when I get on stage and I see a microphone."
Beckham, who has four children with former England and Manchester United as David, started his own fashion brand in 2008 and was honored during the ceremony of his decade's work.
She said: "I feel so honored to receive the first prize for the fashion icon in the E! People's Choice Awards.
