As one might imagine upon meeting the petite, 111-pound, 22-year-old known as Phatfffat, her weight has nothing to do with how she earned the sizable nickname.
"We were at CiCi's Pizza and I had a lotta pizza on my plate," recalls Dondria Nicole Fields, who was a freshman at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, at the time. "A friend said to me that I was not going to be able to eat all of it. And I said you just watch 'cause I will. I had pizza, pasta and some salad, and then those cinnamon icing dessert things, and I ate all of it and she was just surprised."
In a similar fashion, Phatfffat's been throwing her weight around online over the last few years. An angelic voice, pixie looks and her 'round-the-way-girl persona has helped her amass 2.8 million YouTube views, 25,000 MySpace friends, and 11,000 Twitter followers.
What started with a $15 webcam and the simple idea to post YouTube vids of herself singing a cappella R&B covers turned into an Internet phenomenon after her rendition of Ciara's "Promise" garnered more than 1 million hits. That's when Jermaine Dupri came calling. "I would get e-mails all the time from people claiming to be this or that," she says. "But Jermaine persisted, so I called him up one day and the rest is history."
