Naturally Noire: A Sit Down with Yvette Nicole Brown

- By

MN: And now you’re on NBC’s Community, anchoring a Thursday night full of comedies. That’s a big deal. You were known by so many young people (as we just saw). How does it feel to be recognized more by adults when you’re out and about?

YNB: Oh, you’re assuming I get recognized. (laughs) No, but for real, it feels good that people see me and smile, or come up and say hello. I’m always open to that. I love people.

MN: Speaking of people, what’s it like dating here in LA?

YNB: It’s fine. It feels good to be free to date. I’m definitely receptive to meeting people. All I’ll say is that we must be on the same page spiritually, and they must appreciate a girl who eats. (laughs)

MN: Any projects you want to share to the Madame Noire audience?

YNB: Actually, yes. I think we’ve established that I love children. There’s a wonderful project called The Lollipop Theater that helps children that are confined in hospitals battling life-threatening illnesses become exposed to first-run movies. They get the red carpet treatment, and sometimes the actors themselves come by and act out some scenes. It’s just a wonderful cause that’s worthy of support.

MN: What makes you a Madame Noire?

YNB: I’m definitely a people person and I think it’s my love of people that makes me a Madame Noire. Too often we get caught up in our own stuff and tend to block out what others are saying. I’m a great listener and am genuinely interested in meeting and talking to folks and helping when I can.
