Adorable Sophia Grace Brownlee, 8, and her cousin Rosie McClelland, 5, became online phenomena with a cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" last year.

Now they've run it back with a rendition of Nicki's "Moment 4 Life"!

Hot off their Grammy red carpet coverage for Ellen DeGeneres, Sophia Grace and Rosie McClelland appeared on Ellen yesterday to perform the song.

While Sophia Grace belted out lyrics until she was red in the face, Rosie busted out some freaking sweet dance moves. Don't call her an understudy anymore!

Donning their trademark tiaras and wearing fluffy yellow, pink and orange skirts, the twosome bring it hard! Minaj, a big fan of the two, is no doubt proud:

It took some poking, and a bit of prodding, but Lil Kim came out with her true feelings last night.

Appearing on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, the rapper was asked about Nicki Minaj, whether she thinks that artist is stealing her look/material and how she interpreted Nicki's controversial Grammy performance.

"I don't know what that was. I'm pretty sure I feel the same way everybody else feels right about now," Kim said at first, hemming and hawing before finally just saying:"If you have to make a song called 'Stupid Hoe,' you must be a stupid hoe."

Watch the exchange now:

Nicki Minaj us unlikely to receive flak from The Catholic League for this one.

A few days after the controversial artist performed at the Grammys, and was later referred to as vulgar by one religious organization, she has come out with her latest single, debuting "Starships" on the radio this morning with Ryan Seacrest.

“There was so much love surrounding the making of the song, because RedOne is just so sweet to work with," Nicki told the host. "He just sent me that one day and he said, ‘Hey, I got something for you!’ I was like ‘You got to be kidding me, right?’”

We think she means that in a sweet, excited way. Take your first listen to "Starships" below.

And... there it is.

As expected, the Catholic League has issued a statement regarding Nicki Minaj's controversial performance of "Roman Holiday" at the Grammy Awards Sunday night, which featured choir boys, bishops, holy water, faux possessions, levitation and a confessional.

"Nicki Minaj, fresh off looking like a fool with Madonna at the Super Bowl, showed up last night on the red carpet at the Grammys with a guy dressed like the pope. This was just a prelude of what was to come," wrote Catholic League President Bill Donahue, adding:

"Perhaps the most vulgar part was the sexual statement that showed a scantily clad female dancer stretching backwards while an altar boy knelt between her legs in prayer. Finally, 'Come All Ye Faithful' was sung while a man posing as a bishop walked on stage; Minaj was shown levitating."

Donahue concluded by calling out the Grammys themselves, writing:

"Whether Minaj is possessed is surely an open question, but what is not in doubt is the irresponsibility of The Recording Academy. Never would they allow an artist to insult Judaism or Islam."

Adele outshone Lady Gaga musically by winning six Grammys Sunday night. Nicki Minaj may have upstaged her in the outrageous fashion and performance department.

After all, it was Nicki Minaj's Grammy performance, not Gaga's, that featured a confession to a priest and an exorcism (not to mention a fake red carpet Pope sighting).

Clearly there's room for both of these outsized personalities.

Gaga was on hand - wearing fishnets on her face in fact - but a devilish Nicki likely stole the show from her in the fashion department. If you can even call either "fashion."

Vote for your favorite "style" star in the Face-Off below:

Did Nicki Minaj take her act too far at last night's Grammy Awards?

Never one to shy away from controversy, the 29-year old rapper kicked off a rendition of "Roman Holiday" by confessing to a fake priest. She then proceeded to put on a show that featured pyrotechnics, backup dancers dressed as monks and a great deal of religious imagery.

Adele, standing alone at a microphone and simply singing, it was not.

Minaj also walked the red carpet, prior to the ceremony, with a guy dressed like The Pope. Fun and different? Or offensive and different? Watch the singer get exorcised on stage now and then decide:

We can expect a statement from the Catholic League to be released at any moment...

Wanna watch the official music video for Nicki Minaj's latest track, "Stupid Hoe?" You better scroll down and press Play.

Because you won't find it on BET.

That network has banned the video, sources confirm to TMZ, and although no statement has been released regarding the decision, it's clearly based on the explicit nature of both the video (which features Minaj dancing in a cage and wearing a thong, along with other nearly-naked women and a monkey) and the lyrics themselves.

Which repeat the words "stupid hoe" about 10 times per chorus.

Check out the controversial video now and then vote in our poll.

Should BET ban this video?

David Guetta has unveiled his official music video for the track "Turn Me On," and it's pretty awesome.

Featuring Nicki Minaj, the spot stars Guetta as a mad scientist who brings his 29-year old rapping counterpart to life. It's really like a mini movie, as you can see here:

The collaboration itself currently resides at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 and is off Guetta’s latest album, "Nothing But the Beat." Hit up iTunes of a music store nearby today to pick up a copy.

"Super Bass" rapper Nicki Minaj marked her 29th year on this planet today.

This morning, while well wishes poured in, she responded with a simple message on Twitter: "No wishes. Just thanks. Gratitude. To God be the glory."

Holla. That didn't stop some of her friends from giving props to the talented, often-pink-haired diva ... including BFF and touring mate Britney Spears!

Watch Brit's brief YouTube birthday message to Minaj:

Kicking off a birthday with a video from Britney is a great way to get it rolling. Going out in outrageous wigs and Rainbow Brite style outfits likely followed.
