Here's the article. But to save you the trouble of reading all about VV Brown I'll give you the key snippets:
VV Brown dumped a major record label because they wanted to manipulate her. She wonders aloud to Gavin Allen if Duffy could have done the same.But one thing us Duffy fans will agree wholeheartedly with is VV Brown's opinion that Duffy and Winehouse are "pole apart". Yeah VV, you're not wrong there.
“I love Amy Winehouse,” she says.
“She is an amazing songwriter who reveals herself honestly in songs about her life. With Duffy it’s a bit like a record company got hold of a girl after the Amy Winehouse thing, got a lot of people to write soul songs for her, packaged her up and sold millions of records.
Finally, another "intelligent" insight VV provides:
“If [the record label] had made me like Duffy I think I would have died.”Yeah, I agree: they would have had one hell of a job on their hands had they attempted such a feat.
