Watch Britney Spears’ Niece Maddie Cover “Up N’ Down”
It’s common knowledge that Britney Spears started performing at a young age on the Disney Channel. Now the cosmically radiant diva’s niece is looking to get an even greater head start — the 3-year-old is already a YouTube superstar covering her famous auntie’s club-ready hits! The “Inside Out” songbird just posted a video of sister Jame-Lynn’s daughter warbling her Femme Fatale bonus track “Up N’ Down,” meaning she’s being tributed by someone even younger than Selena Gomez. Is Maddie Spears a superstar in the making? Or are nose-picking and unpleasant smells the only traits Brit-Brit and her niece likely have in common? Watch below and decide.
In case you can’t make out the words, the three-year-old is singing: “The beat just dropped and the room got sexy / You’re watching me like there’s no one else around / I know you want me like kids want candy / So keep watching me go down and up and down.” Because it’s never too early to get kids in the know about the joys of voyeurism and being sexy, right? If Britney’s niece continues following in her auntie’s footsteps, we may very well see her twirling around a stripper pole in an amateurish music video of her own someday.
(Just please don’t let us catch Maddie singing along to “Big Fat Bass” any time soon.)
Okay, so we know adorable little Maddie is only a toddler, but Adele she is not. Perhaps Aunt Britney’s next lesson can be about the wondrous powers of Auto-Tune?
