All those press releases about VV Brown forgot to mention that she lives in a dorm room and hangs out with dudes who claim they're not into frat parties because they hate the bro atmosphere but really just feel socially awkward so they drink Pimm's cups and listen to indie rap. Every once in a while, like with Pharrell, the nerds get the jocks to pay attention to them and the integration creates a hybrid afterbirth of weird cool, like Kid Cudi's stoner anti-classic, "Day ’N’ Nite," which the aspirant VV Brown has covered with the help of some of her anti-Chav buddies. Check for when she gets wild enough with the megaphone that she almost knocks her Powerbook off her lap. Think different, everyone.
