by ethnic on March 21, 2008

Place of Birth: Phoenix, Arizona, United States

Date of Birth: September 28, 1984

*African-American (father)
*Mexican (mother)

Melody Thornton is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer. She was part of The Pussycat Dolls, a band whose members also included Carmit Bachar, Ashley Roberts, Nicole Scherzinger, Jessica Sutta, Kimberly Wyatt, and, originally, Kaya Jones.

In an interview, she stated:

A lot of people are not aware that I am 50% Mexican America and my dad is African American. My mom was born in Sonora, however; I do not speak Spanish. I grew up on all the Mexican American cultures though and I embrace that part of me… At times I wish I did speak the language, because there are so many interviews and networks I could be talking to, to represent the Pussycat Dolls and my Latin descent. However, it is a goal of mine, before I have children, to learn Spanish.

I think shes gorgeous! but none of the girls can really sing in the group.

I agree. In many cases it seems that mixed people inherit the best features of each race.

I think that she is pretty and if people think otherwise then that is ok. i would caution your motives for saying something so negative in the first place about someone that seems a little hateful and mean. I actually think when the races mix they make the most beautiful looking offspring. Not to say people of pure races are not beautiful they most definately are but when you take different types of beauty and mix them the result is something different and more enhanced than the original because the beauty of two nations is shown at once. I think it is a good thing and nothing to be thought of as negative. We are all beautiful in our way. Even those of us who say evil things.

And you’re still a hater who has nothing better to do than sit and judge people who are doing a heck of a lot better than you with or without your approval. On nearly every page about a mixed raced or black individual, you have something abrasive or ignorant to say. Race is something that someone can’t change about themselves…nor should they want to. Maybe there’s hope that YOU can, however, change your UGLY attitude with much help and counseling.

Char, thanks for the comment. I agree some people have nothing better to do than to put others down. Its probably a way to make themselves feel better.

izzy June 24, 2010 at 8:08 pm

you’re probably saying that becuase you’re butt ugly…. you UMMMMM person, get a life!
