Ellen: Nicki Minaj Meets Sophia Grace & Rosie
Ellen DeGeneres and her audience have fallen head over heels for two British girls who love to rap while wearing tutus, Sophia Grace and Rosie. She showed their October 2011 appearance, when Ellen surprised them with their idol, Nicki Minaj.
The girls even got to do a duet of Nicki Minaj’s hit “Super Bass.” Now they’re back, in matching silver tutus and tiaras, to visit Ellen once again.
Ellen: Tutus & Tiaras
Ellen complimented the girls on owning every color of tutu imaginable. They even had sparkly shoes, and Sophia Grace explained that her mother made them herself.
Rosie said she is doing well with her school work and making great progress with reading. The girls are taking hip hop lessons and have learned how to do the Running Man.
Of course Ellen asked the girls to demonstrate. The girls were happy to oblige, and though I’m not sure they’d get great scores on Dancing With The Stars, you can’t deny that they have moves, for being such young kids.
Ellen: Sophia Grace & Rosie Want To Be Pop Stars
The girls said their goal is to become pop stars. Ellen asked what that means to them.
Rosie said that pop stars wear star badges and leg warmers, among other star-festooned garments, which she claims are what make you famous.
Sophia Grace agreed with this assessment, despite having three more years of life experience. Ellen concluded based on this definition that she has never met a pop star.
The girls are skipping a few steps, because they announced that they’re pop stars, despite their lack of visible star-shaped bling.
Ellen: Sophia Grace and Rosie Tell A Secret
The girls had a secret to tell the audience, but first they made their parents close their ears so they wouldn’t find out the secret. The girls said they have passageways with fairies inside of them. I am not even making this up.
“When I opened my passageway, fairies exploded in my face,” Rosie said. Sophia Grace said she has magic diamond star dust and a blue fairy named Silver Mist in her passageway.
There you have it, I guess. Now you know the secrets of being an elementary school pop princess. Then the girls argued at length about the relative size of their passageways before Ellen mercifully took a commercial break.
