Zigazig ahhh...

Get ready to belt out "Wannabe" with a hair brush in front of your mirror (making sure to get Mel B.'s rapping verse on point), watch Spice World on TV and then play the video game on your Playstation. Yep, Spice Girl fans need to start preparing for our favorite British pop girl group from the '90s to hit the stage again and—you guessed it—spice up our life.

A source close to the group tells E! News that there are indeed negotiations to reunite the group—and it's beyond just making money off ticket sales.

"They're all talking," says the insider. "There is an ongoing discussion among the girls." However, we don't exactly know when this magical experience will happen.

Our source reveals that there are two main driving forces behind getting the group back together...

One is that "there is a sense of a unfinished business" since the group had to cut its 2008 reunion tour short due to what they called "family and personal commitments."

The other is that this time around, the girls want to also do it with a social conscience. "The whole idea of girl power and using that to fight against bullying and teen suicide is something that is being discussed," the source tells us.

They also say that a Spice Girls reunion performance surrounding this June's Diamond Jubilee or the Olympics are being considered, but warns that these ideas are not set in stone.

Part of the issue is coordinating the schedules of each member.

Mel B., who has fueled the speculation of late with suggestive tweets, will be mostly tied up for the next nine months with appearance obligations for Australia's Dancing With the Stars and X Factor.

"They have a lot to figure out," says the source. "Right now, it is all just talking."

Hey, that's better than nothing, right?!
