AceShowbiz - Sophia Grace, who rocketed to fame after she rapped along to Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" nearly a decade ago, has said goodbye to her iconic tutu and fully reinvented herself as a rap artist. The former child star, now 15, recently released a music video for her song "Can't Sleep" and successfully got many people shook.
Clad in a bright yellow bomber jacket, pink nails and hoop earrings, Sophia is seen in the video strolling around a mansion and hanging out with friends as she declares that she's a changed person now. "It annoys me because I'm not that person anymore and they always ask me to go back to how I was, but I'm different and that's not who I am," she says in the beginning of the visuals.
"So I want to show people I'm a different person now and I've changed, but that's OK because everyone changes," she continues saying, before beginning to rap about how she is asserting her independence now that she's a teenager. "I've been on a leash, now I'm taking control/ I've been under pressure, but that's just how it goes," she spits.
Many couldn't help but be shook to see her all grown up after the video made headlines on January 2. "Just yesterday she was 6," one commenter wrote as another similarly said, "She was so adorable but now she turned into a gangster. I can not believe it is the same person." One other noted, "I think this is her 'Miley after Hannah Montana' stage."
After going viral for rapping to "Super Bass" with her cousin Rosie McClelland on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2011, Sophia and Rosie made multiple appearances on the morning talk show to interview celebrity guests during a segment titled "Tea Time With Sophia Grace and Rosie". They even starred in their own movie titled "Sophie Grace & Rosie's Royal Adventure" in 2014.
