It's not easy to compare yourself to the curvy Jessica Rabbit. But of all the people in the universe, Video Vixen Melyssa Ford comes closest to cartoon perfection.
Her nickname says it all: Music video vixen Melyssa is a real-life Jessica Rabbit. Before popping up in hip-hop videos and on TV, she acted in school plays in her hometown up in Canada. She was discovered by music video director Little X while she was working as a bartender. Soon after, she was appearing in music videos for acts like Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Ghostface Killah, Mystikal and Usher. Among her more notable videos are "Big Pimpin'" by Jay-Z, "The Thong Song Remix" by Cisoco and the ubiquitous "Yeah" video by Usher. Despite her success, she was still living in Canada and not making as much money as she could. She decided to pack her things and move to New York.
After moving to New York, she was featured in the magazine XXL, and this lead to her hosting duties on the internet talk-show Lifestyles of the Phat and Phabulous. To help make ends meet, she worked at P. Diddy's nightclub Justin's, as a bartender. In 2000, Ford got a shot at acting, appearing in the first episode of the Showtime show Soul Food. She also appeared on Entourage (Mandy Moore, Carla Gugino, Anna Faris). She made her film debut in the action movie Turn it Up later that year. In 2001, she was featured on the cover of Black Men Magazine's Swimsuit Issue and began working as an advice columnist for Smooth Magazine in 2002. She also appeared in Maxim Magazine. She is currently a radio host for Sirius Satellite radio and stars in a best-selling calendar and behind-the-scenes DVD.
