Though Nicole Richie is most known for appearing on the reality TV show, “The Simple Life”, it looks as though she tried her hand at a career in music.

The celebrity spoke of a time long ago when she was part of a rap group.

Richie revealed, on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, that when she was eight years old, she and her friends created a rap group called Caution. Too funny!! What’s even more funny is that she says her friends made her audition to be part of the group, so she sang to them over the phone, and they let her in.

Interesting that she wasn’t immediately let in considering her father is music mogul, Lionel Richie! Looks like those kids weren’t willing to give her a free pass.

Finally, after some persuasion on the part of Ellen, Nicole agreed to bust out a few lyrics from one of Caution’s songs. She says that at the time, they took it really seriously and that they truly thought higher of themselves for being in a rap group.

That’s hilarious! The rapping was pretty cute. Though Caution’s career didn’t really take off, Nicole has provided her singing voice for a good cause earlier this year. After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, celebrities joined together to remake the 1985 song “We Are the World.” The proceeds from people buying the song would go to Haiti relief funds.

Among those providing their voice for the tracks was Nicole Richie. The original version was written by father, Lionel Richie. Nicole even went as far as to joke that her voice was better than powerhouse singer, Jennifer Hudson. She wrote on her Twitter page,

“I hope Jennifer Hudson wasn’t upset that I was out singing her tonight.”

Gotta love her sense of humor! Check her out on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” below.
