She may still look like a little kid, but Sophia Grace Brownlee is starting her transition from child to tween star. And the first thing to go: those oh-so-adorable tutus.
It's only been about 5 years since Sophia Grace Brownlee and precious blonde cousin Rosie McClelland became a viral sensation thanks to their YouTube rendition of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" and endless appearances on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." But now, she's ready for a serious change ... and hopes you are too.
"It's definitely hard," she tells Bustle of growing up in the spotlight. "Because people still assume that I wear pink and tutus and, no I don't 'cause I'm 13 now, I've grown up and I've changed. And people just kind of have to accept that."
The teenager just released a brand new single, "Girl In the Mirror," but admits she never thought she'd be performing professionally growing up.
"I've always sung. My parents noticed that I had quite a good voice, but when I was younger I didn't even think about being a singer when I was older," she admits.
Citing Ariana Grande as one of her role models and dream collaborators, Brownlee says she wants to be a triple threat.
"Someone who's multitalented, they can dance, they can sing and they can act. It's really great,” she says of her idols. "'Cause I'd love to. I can act and sing and dance, but yeah. I'd love to be like them when I'm older."
At only 13, she's got some time to get into that groove still.
