Raised in South Central Los Angeles by her grandmother and lately moving to Atlanta after hooking up with Babyface. V. Bozeman first took notice to her God given gift of voice through singing in choirs. Her voice is so powerful it could shift you backwards like the wind on the windiest day of the year. It’s funny how watching the video for “Till The Time” which she is featured in along side (or literally in front of) Timothy Bloom, her voice alone distracted me from the fact they did this video as she said, “In the Nude” Lol. If you want to know how it all came to life and get an inside scoop on her new Lexus campaign, then read this is an interview you don’t want to miss! Everybody’s BEen wondering exactly who “That Girl V” is…here’s your chance to EXCLUSIVELY find out…
THIS IS J. WRITE WITH BE ENTERTAINED MAGAZINE; GLADLY, PROUDLY SITTING ON THE LINE WITH SOMEBODY WHOSE ALL OVER TV RIGHT NOW, TEARING THE VIDEO CHARTS UP, GOT ONE OF THE HOTTEST SONGS OUT LIKE IN THE WORLD. V. BOZEMAN WHAT’S UP!!
Hey J, How you doing?
I’M GREAT NOW THST I’VE GOT YOU ON THE LINE! THAT GIRL V. WHO IS THAT GIRL V.? WHO IS THAT GIRL? EVERYBODY WANTS TO KNOW?
(Laughs) Haha… Who is that girl…hmm…that girl.
YEAH… WHO IS THAT GIRL V?
Well that girl V is just basically your homegirl around the world, that’s what I like to say. I’m from South Central, LA, born and raised. My grandmother raised me and I’ve BEen singing ever since I can rememBEr. I can’t even rememBEr when I wasn’t singing so you know I’ve BEen raised with a strong women in my corner supporting me doing doing what I love to do BEst, which is singing.
AND THE VIDEO… THE VIDEO. OH MY GOSH; IT’S A BIG CONVERSATION PIECE! ITS ART, IT’S BEAUTIFUL. HOW DID THAT CONCEPT EVEN COME TO BE?
Well… Actually Timothy Bloom came up with the concept. He called me one day and he was like…V, “I got an idea…” and I said, “Oh Lord”! When Timothy calls me and says I got an idea it’s something. (J. Laughs) I heard it in his voice and I said, “What Tim?” he said…”We’re gonna do a video!” I said “What video? ” And he responded, “With the song, the song we made” BECcause we made the song months ago…ya know. I said, “What song? He said, “Till the End of Time, Till The Time” and I said, “Ok well what what you wanna do” and he said, “We’re going to do a video in the NUDE.” And you know I just (gasps then silence) you hear that, I didn’t say nothing. That’s why I did that, I was just silent… I said “In the nude” he said Yeah he was like “V. we gotta do it. I mean I’m telling you it came from God we have to do it, it’s just so…” Me trusting Tim and and realizing the musical genius and the visionary that he is… all I could say was “Ok”. Then I thought about it BEcause that is a big step for someone like me, or him to come in the scene and do something that daring, and that umm you know…BOLD.
I KNOW YOU HAVE A LOT OF THINGS COMING UP AND I GOT A LITTLE INSIDE SCOOP THAT YOU WERE HAND PICKED FOR A CAMPAIGN FOR LEXUS. TALK TO ME ABOUT YOUR UPCOMING PROJECT.
It’s called “Perspectives” and Lexus, MSN, and XBox are umm doing campaigns for their new Lexus Hybrids and basically they picked 6 artistic eclectic individuals, me included. So they have an artist, a painter, a sculpturer, a cook, a photographer, and myself; it’s exploring our daily lives and how we tivy to our art. It was a great experience and I was picked from 100s of thousands of people and it was just a blessing. So when you click on the computer and MSN or XBox or Microsoft comes on your screen, you might just see me pop up (laughs).
SALUTE TO YOU! WE CANNOT WAIT FOR EVERYTHING TO OFFICIALLY LAUNCH IN APRIL BUT WE’LL BE GIVING SOME PEOPLE THAT TEASER FOR YOUR FEATURE TOO… WE ‘RE HONORED TO PUT IT OUT THERE FOR YOU.
AND WE ALSO KNOW YOU JUST LAUNCHED YOUR WEBSITE, BECAUSE WE NEED FOR EVERYBODY TO KNOW WHO THAT GIRL V IS. HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THE WEBSITE?
Well “That Girl V. is actually That Girl… Yeah this is the first week that iT got put up and my flash page is called thatgirlv.com, you can see the video, you can see pictures, and actually a preview of the Perspectives Lexus Ad… there’s an interesting bio on there too; it’s basically like my mother talking about me as a little girl growing up and doing what I love to do. It’s not like a typical bio, which I love; it’s very intimate…people get to kind of see it, the personal side of me. I’ve also got my twitter @thatgirl_v and we’ve got my Facebook fan page under “thatgirlv” too. It’s just funny BEcause actually my manager Monica Payne picked “That girl V” BEcause a lot of people would always say, “Who is that girl? Who is that girl V?” So she knew it should just BE…”That Girl V.” and I said “Perfect”. (J. laughing) So that’s the thing we got going. Lol.
ABSOLUTELY, ABSOLUTELY! SO MUSICALLY WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM THAT GIRL V; WHAT CAN WE EXPECT IN THE UPCOMING MONTHS?
Well musically umm I’m working with, of course, Timothy Bloom; he’s basically executive producing my album BEcause we have a great chemistry, along with a few other people. I’m definitely working with other people, but he’s basically heading the album and gearing that. I’m happy with that BEcause I trust him musically and he knows me inside and out.
WELL WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO ALL YOU HAVE GOING ON, I MEAN I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MUCH IT IS A PLEASURE TO SPEAK TO YOU.
Wow J. Thank you so much and I appreciate you taking the time with me too. I’m very honored and you guys are doing big things over there… I’m proud of you.
THANK YOU SO MUCH, FOR TAKING THE TIME OUT TO CHAT WITH ME, WE LOOK FORWARD TO SUPPORTING ALL OF YOUR ENDEAVORS
