Poster #4--not only are you majorly creepy, you're also WRONG. According to the website DEAD OR ALIVE, Ms. Moore is ALIVE!! I don't know whose body you were working on, or what controlled substances were on board that day, but you need to get some very serious counselling!!

Melba is alive and NOT on Welfare! She is a wonderful soul, creative, talented beyond any measure...Get your facts straight TMZ. if you need to get accurate info about Melba then you should ask for a interview.
She is doing amazingly well.

Okay, so when I SAW her perform a couple of weeks ago, I imagined it? Next time I see her, I'll let her know she's dead especially since Ian "worked on her body" (or is that a euphemism?).

Some of you may have her confused with Minnie Riperton of the song "Lovin' You" fame. She passed away several years ago, I believe from breast cancer. Minnie's daughter is Maya Rudolph of Saturday Night Live.
