She's reunited with The Spice Girls since the band's split in 2001, but now Victoria Beckham admits she wasn't too thrilled about her decision to return to the stage.

In the December 2013 issue of Vogue Paris, the 39-year-old fashion designer recalls the lack of passion during the band's 2008 reunion tour and reveals details behind her nickname "Posh Spice."

"I realized it was finished for good in 2008, when we reformed for our reunion tour," Miss Beckham declared. "It should have been the best moment of my life, but I just wanted to be elsewhere."

She continued, "It wasn't lack of respect for the girls or the audience, but the passion just wasn't there. By contrast, in my new career, the passion grows every year. I still want more."

In regards to her famous cold personality that earned her the title as "Posh," Victoria stated, "I looked moody. But I wasn't! I was shy, [and] not very sure of myself."

"I had to create a character and I thought of that: staring at people and pouting. My insecurities helped me invent the character in a way."
