If you haven’t heard of Sophia Grace and Rosie the Hype Girl, you truly have been sleeping alone with Wilson on a deserted island.

Sophia Grace Brownlee is an 8-year-old YouTube sensation and Rosie is her 5-year-old cousin.

The two British girls became a YouTube hit by Sophia Grace belting out the lyrics of her favorite artists’ song, “Super Bass,” by Nicki Minaj.  They genuinely love the platinum-selling recording artist.  When you hear Sophia rapping the lyrics to “Super Bass,” you may be confuzzled as to who really owns this song because this little girl doesn’t miss a beat or syllable.

Now, her cousin, Rosie, stands beside her while she performs because as Sophia mentioned on The Ellen Show, “Rosie makes me feel more confident.” But when you see Sophia Grace, you’re going to see that her confidence is out of this world. When you see the word ‘confident’ in the dictionary, her face will appear. Check the inside for their performance. READ MORE

Rihanna Could Be Guest Judge On “X Factor”

Rihanna will be popping up in a few new places this fall. According to TMZ, the R&B diva is set to make an appearance on the U.S. version of “The X Factor” as a guest judge. She’ll reportedly be working with Antonio “L.A.” Reid to help decide which contestants he should mentor during the show, which is set to premiere September 21st at 8:00 p.m. Eastern on Fox. The singer already has a working relationship with the former chairman and CEO of Island Def Jam, as he signed her to the label back in 2005.

Rihanna is also set to make an appearance on the new Coldplay album. Chris Martin and company announced the full track list for “Mylo Xyloto,” which will include a collaboration between the two acts on the song “Princess of China.” The album is due out October 25th.

Ryan Seacrest Buys VH1 Soul?

Ryan Seacrest, radio personality and host of American Idol, is interested in purchasing VH1 Soul network. The creator of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” and “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” has decided to snap up one of the only music channels that still plays only music. With it being pulled out of a number of major markets, the network looks to be in peril. The plan is to purchase the network and rebrand it, but not the same way Oprah purchased Discovery Health and turned it into the OWN Network, Seacrest saying, “It will not be branded with my name or my face, which many people will be happy about.”

Once the plan goes through, will the channel still play Jill Scott and Dwele? Ain’t nothing like neo-soul at 3 in the morning…

What do you think?
