Fats Domino, Namesake of ViP “Fats” Model, Dead at Age 89

Fats Domino, for whom the ViP obese male model “Fats” is named, died of natural causes at his home in Louisiana, USA on 24 October, 2017. The R&B legend was 89 years old. Domino was an early inductee into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and had several top 40 hits, including “Ain’t That a Shame” and “Blueberry Hill”.  

Like Fats, the names of other ViP models pay tribute to music legends living (Roberta Flack) and dead (Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Thelonious Monk, Glenn Miller, Louis Armstrong, Eartha Kitt, Dizzy Gillespie, Nina Simone, and Charlie Parker).
