When Super Bass is played, there's a good chance you will not just think of Nicki Minaj but also the adorable British girl duo, Sophia Grace Brownlee [b. April 18, 2003] and Rosie McClelland, who ruled the internet with their viral video in 2011. Well, not only Nicki Minaj, the duo even became Ellen DeGeneres's favorite and launched their own segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Born in Essex, England, to Carly Brownlee and Dominic Brownlee, Sophia became an overnight celebrity after the certain video of her and her cousin, McClelland went viral. Things took off from there as they became regular guest hosts on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and also became correspondents during red carpet events, plus movie stars and illustrated children's book authors among others.

Did Sophia Grace Brownlee Try to Overshadow Rosie McClelland? Are They Still Friends?

Sophia Grace Brownlee's and her cousin, Rosie McClelland's life took a turn overnight when their video of singing Nicki Minaj's hit Super Bass went viral over the internet. Even though their parents shared the video just for fun, it soon caught the eye of popular celebrities like Justin Beiber and Puff Daddy who did not take long to tweet the clips of her video.

Their popularity further rose after Ellen DeGeneres invited them on her show to sing a duet with the singer of Super Bass hitmaker, Nicki Minaj. Being the favorite of DeGeneres, they became the regular guest on The Ellen Show having their own little segment on it.

From being the host of different red carpet events to debuting as actors, they did everything together. However, as their fame skyrocketed, there comes a price to pay as they started getting hate comments and being compared between each.

Being cheerful, enthusiastic, and extroverted, Brownlee's interaction with the guests on The Ellen Show somehow overshadowed the shy Rosie. This led fans to assume that she is intentionally doing so, despite them just kids being kids, and she even received lots of hate comments and backlashes.

Even though they started their career as a duo over the years, they started to pursue their solo careers which further led people to assume that the competition caused a barrier between the cousins. But the truth is far from this as the two share the same bond as before with Rosie supporting her fashion brand and Sophia promoting McClelland's songs.
