Sophia Grace & Rosie From The Ellen Show: Things That Bother The Beep Out Of Me
My little ham-bones are 35 months, 1 week, and 1 day old
I know this sounds like a ridiculous thing to write about but you know how some things just annoy you and you’ve got to get them out? You know, like why the hell do Max and Ruby live alone while grandma’s living down the street? Are their parents busy executives that come home in between shows, or should CPS be making a little visit to their residence?
Poor Ruby, while responsible, is still very young and is missing out on her childhood. Where the heck are their parents? Why doesn’t little Max talk more by now? Why am I rambling?
OK, what is bothering me today? Well, last night actually, my daughter was playing Movie Star Planet and was watching You Tube videos inside of the game. She showed me one of these two cute kids named Sophia Grace and Rosie that are frequently seen on the Ellen show. I don’t know exactly how they got their little ‘claim to fame’. Being cute and outspoken works for a lucky few I guess.
I remember seeing them on videos when me and my daughter were looking up dance videos on You Tube well over a year ago. They must have been on that show many times in total.
1:40 she literally pushes Rosie out of her way to perform for Niki .
What bothers me SO much, (Mikayla to) is…why doesn’t the dark-haired girl share the spotlight and let that cute little blond Rosie sing? (Or talk more and not hog the guest stars like Niki Minaj seen above.)
Used to be I thought she was young and maybe more shy and at the time less capable of performing along with her cuz, but this last video really annoyed me. (Trouble as seen below.) Sophia hogged all of the spotlight, and poor Rosie simply moved her mouth this time, but sang no words. Why? Is she only allowed to lip sync? You just can’t help but watch, wonder and feel badly for her.
I was waiting for her to finally sing after all of the videos I remember seeing where the other took over 99% of the performances, and the interviews..but nada. Does anybody know that answer because it is annoying the hell out of me? Is that the way she wants things, or is she being bullied into silence in a manner of speaking?
Also, I know they bleep out the ‘bad parts’ of certain songs that these two sing, but aren’t they a tad young to know the gist of the lyrics of some of these popular yet adult-like songs? Enough to sing every word. Sorry to sound anal. My children enjoy some popular music to, so I can’t say TOO much, but I am always monitoring.
I mean I remember singing along to ‘Like a Virgin’ having no clue for YEARS what virgin meant, so….don’t come at me here. I doubt I was these ages though. (Hard to remember at my ripe ‘ol age .) Then again, I snuck the Madonna tape out of my father’s drawer. I was not performing to them.
Here’s an old video of Sophia singing Starships and Rosie not so much, if at all honestly.
Here is the new one I spoke of before. Surely she is now old enough to sing along and quite apparently knows the words, so what’s up? Why the lip sync?
Taylor Swift’s Trouble
Come on Ellen, ask Sophia why she won’t let her cousin sing and demand Rosie get equal time, or at least get the chance to sing the backup vocals so she can be heard. There was NOTHING here, poor kid. It’s honestly sad. That’s why I’m so annoyed. She’s older now, knows the words. SHEESH!
Why this bothers me so much, I don’t know..it just DOES! My daughter to. She thinks Sophia is ‘a brat’. Her words…NOT mine! Overly eccentric, perhaps. I was to, but I would share the spotlight. It’s not very fair. Watch little Rosie become the bigger star in the long run. You never do know.
This was honestly hard to find. A picture of JUST Rosie. She deserves some recognition to.
OK, I got that off of my chest.
Have a wonderful, and in some places, very snowy Sunday!
