“Do you think my cheeks look fat?”

That’s the first question that the UK pop/soul sensation VV Brown asks after our video interview. I’m not going to lie. It’s a shock for this writer to see this 5 foot 9 inch model so worried about her appearance. But those tiny moments are what add to Vanessa “VV” Brown’s character. Far from being a diva, Ms. Brown is wowing audiences in The States as well as her native UK.
