Moore is apparently one of the most common surnames in Ireland,even though it was probably given to people of the Yorkshire moores originally.

Everyone has a right to there owe opion but u shouldn’t judge someone without knowing who they really r and if u bothered to really lesten to her music you would know she is who she is and everthing she believes in, thinking, and feeling its all there in her music she will not change for no one what u see is what u get pink!!!! Out spoken as strong as she is venerable she has strong beliefs she speaks about subjects most ppl would never have the nerve to talk about and sings about things most of us wish we could say to the government and ppl around us and nothing changes her she is who she is and it makes me sick that she doesn’t get the respect or recoginition she deserves I think she is an inspiration to all women young and old that no matter where u come from or what u may have done in your life u have to stay strong and true to yourself change for no one!!!!!!

Her mother is Jewish.

Jewish can refer to either ethnicity or religion, usually both.

DatMatt July 17, 2010 at 3:24 am

That’s true, but sometimes it gets confusing because there are Iberian Jews, Sephardic Turkish Jews, Ashkenazi Jews, African Jews, and so on.

Bonita November 29, 2010 at 2:11 pm

By traditional Jewish law (Halacha) anyone who is born of a Jewish mother (biological or by conversion)or one who converts to Judaism is Jewish. Jews are Jews no matter what ethnicity – so Pink, Yaphet Kotto, Rashida Jones, and Shia LeBoeuf are all MOT

Pink is dumb. All her stuff is studio overdubbed hacky crap that is only popular because the majority of her fans are idiot children who have no idea what real music is.
She was actually worn a three toed sloth, had huminzatin surgery as an experiment undertaken by the govenrment. She is currently doing what she does because the government planted here there. They write all her lyrics which are underlayed with subliminal messages. FEAR AND CONSUME!

chantelle November 7, 2009 at 8:05 am

tiffany November 4, 2009 at 12:07 pm
