| by Michael Allen

Eight-year-old (Princess) Sophia Grace Brownlee is not an actual princess, but she is a viral video star, thanks to her cover version of Nicki Minaj's tune 'Super Bass' (video below).

After Sophia and her 5-year cousin Rosie (who both live in Essex, England) uploaded their 'Super Bass' cover onto YouTube two weeks ago, it has received more than 3.3 million views. The tune also caught the attention of Nicki Minaj, who tweeted: "I HAVE to meet her. She is a SUPERSTAR!!! Like did u hear how she sang the bridge? The attitude? OMG!"

The video also caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, so it's possible that Sophia may follow in the footsteps of Greyson Chance, who went from YouTube obscurity to stardom last year thanks to an appearance on 'Ellen.'  Sophia and Rosie will appear on 'Ellen' Thursday.

As far as the adult content of 'Super Bass,' Sophia's parents posted a disclaimer on her YouTube channel: "We understand that in the original version of 'Super Bass' there is inappropriate words, Sophia has put in appropriate words to get round this.
