Singer Mel B finds it “disgusting” when a celebrity doesn’t give back to charity. The Spice-girl says, “Do you know what? I think it’s disgusting when a celebrity isn’t doing something for charity. It feels so good and it’s so easy – when you’ve got the money and you’ve got the exposure – to give something back.”
The mom of two also finds that giving back helps her to be tougher on her daughters, Phoenix, nine, and 20-month-old Angel.
”If Phoenix starts crying because she wants something, I say, ‘What’s the matter? Are you hungry? In pain? No, well stop right now because there are a lot of children in the world a lot worse off than you. And the good thing is I can actually come out with the facts which I know now because I support a few charities like Oxfam.”
