Why be a 10 when you can be an 11? Millie Bobby Brown proved on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon that she can do more than just act. The breakout Stranger Things actress blew the audience away with her rapping skills.
The British star, 12, was joined by her costars Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin), Finn Wolfhard (Mike) and Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas). She rapped part of Kanye West’s 2010 hit “Monster,” which features Nicki Minaj and Jay Z.
“Pull up in the monster automobile, gangster with a bad bitch that came from Sri Lanka / Yeah, I’m in that Tonka, color of Willy Wonka / You could be the King but watch the Queen conquer,” she rapped Minaj’s part. “OK, first things first, I’ll eat your brains / then I’mma start rocking gold teeth and fangs.”

Hours earlier, Netflix announced that a second season of Stranger Things is on the way. The next nine episodes will debut in 2017.
Brown plays Eleven “El” in the hugely successful series. El quickly became a fan favorite when she befriended Dustin, Mike and Lucas. She has a dark past, a possibly even bleaker future, and a love for Eggos.
Brown opened up about her audition in an interview with Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul for Elle. “I was actually based in England at the time. And I had this audition tape come in; they gave us a little reel of The Goonies, Close Encounters, Poltergeist, that sort of thing. It was kind of like our trailer that we were to base our characters off. And my character was based off of E.T.,” she explained earlier this month. “I thought, This is very cool. I had never done a period piece before. I immediately fell in love with the whole experience itself: cutting off my hair, the script, my character. It was all phenomenal.”
Brown doesn’t completely relate to her character, though. “[Eggos] are absolutely disgusting,” she said. “I liked them at first. I was like, ‘Oh! This isn’t too bad!’ It was just the amount of times I was doing it — seven or eight times. At first we had the blueberry and I was like, ‘This is nice! I like this!’ And then I was like, ‘OK. Now I need a spit bucket. I’m going to throw up.'”
