YouTube & Ellen Show Sensation: Sophia Grace Brownlee & Rosie - Should She Be Imitating Nicki Minaj?

Unless you've been living under a rock, you probably know that YouTube & Ellen Show sensation Sophia Grace and her hype girl Rosie have become virally famous for their imitation and love of Nicki Minaj.  At this point, you can't even count how many times they've been on the Ellen Show.  

I have to admit, at first, it was all very cute.  You would see these little girls singing and dancing and thinking to yourself, wow they have spunk but at this point, as the performances continue to grace the Ellen Show stage every so often, its become ever more disturbing in hindsight if you analyze what they are singing about.  As a trendy 30 year old, I most definitely feel like I live life to its fullest and enjoy the spark of life, so I am not some old-fashioned purist who is ready to wag my finger in disapproval.  But should these little girls be singing Nicki Minaj songs?  With innuendos and words that are not so innocent I find it disturbing that it keeps being viewed as cute when these youngsters take the stage.  

Initially, the first performance was cute, the second time LOL, the third time -- smirk, now the 15th and rising I am like... oookay, so when are they going to stop this madness?  It is NOT alright for 5 - 6 year olds to be talking about the subject matter Nicki Minaj is known for!  Even I as a Nicki fan will  only listen to edited versions and then there are some I won't even listen to at all. I'm just saying, in a world where people are saying Chris Brown is a bad example to little kids, why is this all of sudden cute?  It's odd, Nicki is viewed as a living Barbie doll so of course she is going to be instantly like by little girls, that's why Sophia Grace and Rosie like her, why Willow Smith loves her and did a song with her, even why she is part of the Nickelodeon Kids show, but again, why is THIS acceptable?  ...WHY?
