Nicki Minaj Gives Sophia Grace + Rosie Advice, Performs Medley on ‘Ellen’
‘Super Bass’ girls Sophia Grace and Rosie were reunited with their heroine, Nicki Minaj, on — where else? — ‘The Ellen Degeneres Show.’ Ms. Minaj doled out advice as well as a special gift for the pint-sized pink enthusiasts.
The visibly excited Sophia Grace and Rosie talked style with Minaj. The Harajuku Barbie advised them not to get nails until they turn 18. It makes sense, considering if they were ever in school, talons may get in the way of coloring.
The girls were beyond excited to see Minaj — their legs were shaking to the point that the ‘Starships’ rapper actually asked if they were okay. Sophia Grace was excited to show off her practice at the American accent, which Minaj followed with her attempt at the cousins’ British one.
Before a medley performance of her pop hits ‘Starships’ and ‘Right By My Side,’ Ellen asked Minaj to give the girls some advice, and it doesn’t sound like they followed it the first time she did that. “I told them to focus on their books,” she said. “I have to think of some really juicy advice for you guys,” she told the girls.
“This has to be really memorable … Sophia and Rosie, don’t ever let anyone talk you out of wearing pink!” she said to thunderous applause. “Pink is your color. Pink is going to keep you happy for the rest of your life. Pink is going to give you power, energy and the girliness that you need,” she added. “You wear your crown and you’re a queen.”
Finally, Minaj gifted the British ballerinas with two tickets to the Wango Tango concert in L.A., and she even asked them to be her special guests! Sophia Grace almost cried upon receiving the tickets, once again proving that she’s one of the cutest little tykes we’ve ever seen.
