Hay guys, I need your opinion. Is a member of the Village People a Village Person, or a Village People? My friend and I just had a rather heated debate on this topic. She claims it's "Village Person" but surely this is wrong as it simply implies that they're from a village and not the Village People. Please resolve this urgent issue.

Edit: Damn it guys, now I owe them a drink. Look what you've done.
