NEW interview with Melody Thornton of the Pussycat Dolls!

Rod 2.0 writes:
Okay, gays, admit it. Don't cha want a girlfriend whose hot like Melody Thornton? The stunningly attractive biracial singer is the the second most prominent vocalist of the Pussycat Dolls. Tuesday you can hear the latest sound from Melody and the girls as they release Doll Domination, the follow-up to 2005's enormously successful PCD. The 24-year-old singer chatted with Rod 2.0 on total media and Doll Domination, producing the new album, her rumored solo effort and the gay fascination with the Pussycat Dolls.

What about the bond between the Pussycat Dolls and gay men?

Melody Thornton: Well, thankfully gay men love the music. "Don't Cha" has a serious hook to it and the club remixes were hot. Then there is the whole girl group glamor. But on another level you just get us. You just understand the Pussycat Dolls. Sometimes critics and people forget that we are in the entertainment industry and take the outfits, lyrics and our persona too seriously. Not the gay fans. They love us just the way we are and we love them the same way.

Did you have many gay friends growing up?

Melody Thornton: Yes, actually I did. I'm biracial, Mexican-American and African American, and grew up in Arizona. In high school sometimes I didn't feel like I fit in. It was amazing because all the gay guys welcomed me with open arms and identified with me. We clicked because we're all outsiders or are doing what people don't expect us to do or what people don't want us to do. I have met some incredible gay men in drama classes, music classes .. there is so much talent, passion and creativity in the community. I love it.
