Ellen Star Sophia Grace Sets The Record Straight On Those Plastic Surgery Rumblings

Back in 2011, British children Sophia Grace Brownlee and her cousin Rosie McClelland first made headlines on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" for their viral cover of Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass." Brownlee and McClelland — widely known as "Sophia Grace & Rosie" — were 8 and 5 when they first went viral, and went on to make multiple appearances on DeGeneres' show throughout the years. Now 19 and 15, the two cousins even made one final appearance in May, where they performed "Super Bass" one last time before the show's end, much to DeGeneres and the audience's delight.

As both cousins stated in their final appearance on the show, they are currently focusing on their ongoing musical careers, with each having released a new single recently. Brownlee released "Little Things" in May, while McClelland released "Safe In Your Love" around the same time. 

Perhaps in light of their newfound professional music careers, Sophia Grace Brownlee has been the subject of some rumors regarding her appearance, with some even suggesting that she might have had plastic surgery. As a result, Brownlee decided to set the record straight. 

Sophie Grace debunks fans' assumptions about her lips

It's no surprise child stars Sophia Grace Brownlee and Rosie McClelland have changed in appearance in the decade since 2011. Naturally, many fans have worried that, although the two young stars were more or less protected from undue public and social media scrutiny as prepubescent children, they will likely face this kind of scrutiny as they grow up. Most reference to the two young women has been with regard to fans' shock at seeing them age so quickly. However, many also joked about how old they feel. 

Nevertheless, with these jokes came some serious concerns, with some apparently even rumbling about whether Brownlee had plastic surgery for her lips. As a result, the music artist took to YouTube to set the record straight. "I've probably answered this quite a lot of times," she said in a video posted July 29. "I really don't think my lips look that big; maybe I haven't overlined them as much as I usually do today. But I've never had lip fillers, I wouldn't be interested in getting lip fillers." However, she also would not rule out the possibility of getting plastic surgery in the future, saying, "You never know."

"Makeup is very powerful," she said of her lips' "plump" appearance. However, "for now," she said, "I don't really want any surgery. I don't feel like I need it." Fans in the comments applauded her transparency, with one person writing, "Love you the way you are and I appreciate your honesty and realness."
