'BBC interview kid' steals the show at a press conference - cements her status as internet hero
Political scientist Robert E. Kelly found himself upstaged by his swaggering daughter in an interrupted BBC interview that went viral last week, and his effortlessly cool four-year-old shows no signs of giving up the limelight.
At a press conference in which Kelly and his family talked of their new-found internet fame, daughter Marion continued to captivate the audience, sucking on a lollipop and looking endearingly bored out of her mind.
As a result, social media is once again heralding the new queen of slacker charm, with many deciding she ought to run for president of the world someday.

The family previously stated that Maion was in a "hippity-hoppity mood" on the day of the viral video, having celebrated her birthday the day before. So far Marion has not made a statement on potentially becoming queen of the universe, but we will update this story once it arrives
