Forget her No. 1 country albums, Dancing with the Stars trophy and American Idol success. According to Kellie Pickler‘s 3-year-old niece, her aunt’s most impressive accomplishment yet may be appearing on Shimmer and Shine.

“I have to tell you, I have a lot of street cred with my niece ’cause this is one of her favorite shows!” the singer, 30, says of the animated Nickelodeon series about a little girl and her genie pals.

Pickler will play Zora, a genie pirate, in a two-episode story airing early next year. She will sing two original songs for the show.

Christina Milian Lends Her Voice to Dora and Friends: Into the City!

03/11/2015 at 03:30 PM ET

No one is more excited about Christina Milian‘s new role than her 5-year-old daughter Violet.

The singer had “so much fun” lending her voice to Nickelodeon’s Dora and Friends: Into the City!, in which she plays a mean mermaid, la Sirena Mala, who steals everyone’s treasures in “Magical Mermaid Adventure.” (Spoiler alert: Dora and her friends must transform into mermaids themselves to save the day!)

“Violet loves Dora and when she heard the music recording I did for the episode, she memorized it and had me play it on repeat every day,” Milian, 33, tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Seriously, it’s so cute! She and I will have a great time watching this episode.”

So Cute! Dot-Marie Jones Lends Her Voice to Doc McStuffins

03/06/2015 at 10:00 AM ET

You’ve never seen Dot-Marie Jones like this.

The star — who recently underwent a dramatic transformation as Coach Beiste on Glee — shrinks down to teeny-tiny proportions to voice the role of a plastic doll on the March 13 episode of Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins.

“I have three stepdaughters and tons of nieces and nephews,” Jones, 51, tells PEOPLE. “The show has some great messages for kids and is just really nurturing.”

As Coach Kay, who goes to Doc for help fixing her broken coach’s whistle, Jones got to see a Disney-fied version of herself: “She has my curly dark hair and blue eyes and freckles. It’s so cute.”

Breasts on display in pop culture: socially acceptable.

Breasts used to nurse babies in public: controversial.

Why the divide? Ricki Lake, executive producer of the new documentary Breastmilk, has some thoughts on the matter.

“There are so many forces in our culture that make breastfeeding a huge challenge — not the least of which is a bizarre public anxiety around exposed breasts!” Lake, who also co-produced 2008’s The Business of Being Born, tells PEOPLE.

Timed with National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, the movie is newly available on iTunes and Lake believes it will “definitely make waves with the general public, simply due the fact that breastfeeding has become such a lightening rod topic.”

Last Friday, North West (left, pictured with mom Kim Kardashian) joined a slew of other trendy tots at Gymboree, an indoor children’s gym and playground, in New York City.

And instead of introducing the unmistakable offspring by her famous moniker, a nanny told everyone that her name was actually Samantha!

But that didn’t fool the celeb savvy parents in attendance.

“I just played ball with North West, Kim Kardashian’s #baby and the paparazzi didn’t even find us, wrote FabGabBlog, a fashion and mommy blogger, to caption an Instagram photo of her own adorable toddler.
