Multi-Cultural Backgrounds

Three of the most beautiful women I have ever seen are Beyonce, Shakira and Fergie. All three of these women were child stars. Fergie started as the voice of Sally on Peanuts cartoons! And all three are an a ethnic mix and experienced multi-cultural childhoods.

According to Wikipedia, Stacey Ferguson’s parents are Mexican, Native American, Irish and Scottish in descent. Shakira Isabel Mebarak Ripoll was born and raised in Barranquilla, Colombia, to parents of Lebanese, Catalan and Italian descent. She is the highest-selling Colombian artist of all time, and the second most successful female Latin singer, with 50 million albums sold worldwide. Additionally, she is the only artist from South America to top the charts in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the UK.

A Wikipedia entry on Beyonce Knowles says:

Knowles' father is African American and her mother is of Creole descent. Knowles was baptized after her mother's maiden name, as a tribute to her mother and to prevent the name from becoming obsolete, since only a few of the Beyincé males carry the name. Her maternal grandparents, Lumis Albert Beyincé and Agnéz Deréon, were French-speaking Louisiana Creoles.
