SLIDESHOW: Red carpet for Sophia Grace and Rosie as they rub shoulders with the stars
CELEBRITY cousins Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie McClelland have been rubbing shoulders with some of the top stars from the world of showbusineses since winning a Teen Choice Award in California in the summer.
The pop princesses from Old Harlow have starred in Nicki Minaj’s latest music video, sung to Alicia Keys on the red carpet and attended a birthday party for the son of Britney Spears.
Since winning their award, Sophia Grace (9) and Rosie (5) have been busy maintaining their status as A-list celebrities. Demand for the youngsters, who currently divide their time between Harlow and Los Angeles in order to record their regular features for the Ellen DeGeneres Show, has continued to soar, with offers of further television work and even talks of them releasing their own single now in the pipeline.
"So much has happened I’m not sure where to start," Sophia Grace’s dad Dominic told the Star this week. "After winning the award the girls were invited by Will.i.am to join him in his studio as he is interested in making a song with Sophia Grace.
"They have also continued their ‘Tea Time with Sophia Grace & Rosie’ slot on Ellen’s show and were recently joined by Katy Perry and Justin Bieber. They also got to interview all the stars on the red carpet at last month’s MTV Video Music Awards.
"Sophia Grace also just got back from a weekend in Copenhagen, Denmark, where she was playing the part of Nicki Minaj in a music video set to be released in three weeks, and she will start recording her first song this year."
Dominic said that while both girls were continuing to enjoy their time in spotlight, they were still managing to keep up with their schoolwork.
"People always ask me about how Sophia Grace is getting on at school and the funny thing is since we have been going to America her maths and reading have improved!" he added.
"The school has been very supportive towards the girls and we thank them for being so helpful along the way. It has been an amazing journey for both girls and we are all looking forward to the future."
Rosie’s mum, Danielle, added: "The girls’ schooling is a main priority of ours and they have both settled back into school in the UK perfectly. Their headmaster has been one hundred per cent supportive and Rosie is doing amazingly well.
"We still as a family feel so very grateful and fortunate for the amazing children we have and for all the opportunities that we have been given, and want to thank everyone for their continuous support and interest in our girls."
