In yesterday’s episode, Ellen got Amy Poehler to join her in a game of Karaoke Roulette. As you know, karaoke can be hard enough even with the lyrics, but Karoake Roulette makes it that much harder because there are no lyrics shown to you and you also don’t know what song you’re going to get until the music stars. Well, at least that’s the way Poehler wanted to play it.
The song Poehler got was “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga and the lyrics she dished out were absolutely hilarious. “Gloves, gloves, gloves… I want your gloves,” she sang. Enjoy the video below to see why (as evident by the photo above) they had such a riot. PS. So happy that Parks & Recreation is back on now (as of Thursday night!
Promoting her new Kiss album that just came out, Carly Rae Jepsen was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to chat with Ellen about her new music and life-changing year. Before I get to that, I want to talk about her album. It’s so good and I highly recommend it. I am going to go on the record and say that it’s my favorite album of the year so far.
Jepsen performed her new single, “This Kiss” live on the show and it was amazing! She also sat down with Ellen and talked about how her life has changed and what it’s like having so many remakes of her hit song, “Call Me Maybe“.
Towards the end of the interview, Ellen surprises Carly with a gift that is something you’d be surprised to know she didn’t already have. Enjoy the segment below!
On Tuesday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the infamous X-Factor judges Simon Cowell and Britney Spears stopped by to promote the show.
In the following clip, Ellen asks Britney about how she had tweeted about wanting to learn the ‘Gangnam Style’ dance. Ellen then surprised Britney and said she had someone here that was going to teach her. Who you ask? None other than Psy himself! Britney was completely shocked but then was totally game to learn the dance with Psy and Ellen. “Dress classy and dance cheesy,” said Psy about the dance. Britney looked hot, but while dancing she reminded me of a fembot from back when she was in Austin Powers. Luckily, her head didn’t explode this time.
Love Britney. Love Psy. Love Ellen. What a combination! Check out the awesome clip below and be sure to tune in on Tuesday (today) to watch the whole segment!
Last year, New Kids On The Block and The Backstreet Boys teamed up for the NKOTBSB tour. Maybe someone on the Hollywood Walk of Fame committee caught the concert, because both boy bands are set to receive their own star on the famed sidewalks of Hollywood. Joining them on the 2013 list of recipients are 22 other celebrities from the world of movies, television, theater and music. Two of this year’s honorees are receiving their star posthumously.
For the first time ever, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce held a live press announcement to reveal this year’s recipients. Former “CSI” star Marg Helgenberger, who received her own star last year, announced the list of the 24 new inductees at the Roosevelt Hotel. Here’s a fact you probably didn’t know. Each celebrity has to pay $30,000 in costs and fees for the honor of having their name engraved in a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Almost sounds like sorority/fraternity fees doesn’t it?
Find out who’s getting a star in 2013 below. For me, there were a couple of people I was shocked to see on the list. Not because they didn’t deserve it, but surprised they were shunned until this point.
When guest Ellie Kemper hit the Ellen show, I don’t think she really knew what to expect. What started off as Ellen introducing a simple game of Taboo, suddenly was interrupted by the studio’s fire alarm. Ellen quickly asks her show runner if everything is okay as they frantically check. Luckily, a fireman was on hand to enter the stage and tell everyone to remain calm… I think you know where this is headed.
Ellen calls the man over to the stage and hands Ellie a stack of singles. The moment Ellie realizes what is happening is priceless. The fireman proceeds to give Ellie a little strip tease which starts off pretty tame, but then, he rips his tank top off and gives her face quite the booty shake. This all ends with Ellie making it rain all over the
fireman private dancer. I personally was laughing so hard at watching this this morning that I woke Patrick up. When I finally showed him what was so funny, he agreed it was worth the chuckles. Ellen simply said she wanted to get Ellie’s bachelorette party over and done with. I think she definitely accomplished that. Check it out below.
On Tuesday, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announced that Emmy-winning talk show, activist and JC Penny spokeswoman Ellen Degeneres would be honored with the 2012 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The prize is set in place to honor people who make a big impact on American society just as Mark Twain himself did. Ellen isn’t the first comedian to receive the honor. She joins the likes of Bill Cosby, Tina Fey and Will Ferrell. Ellen will receive her award at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C. on October 22. Honestly, it’s about time.
Ellen is definitely a pioneer of our generation. Her dedication to equality has definitely been felt nationwide and what I love about Ellen most is her willingness to make an impact – in a big way. Whether it’s donating to the latest charity or helping out those in need, she always has a way to make you smile on a daily basis. If anyone was deserving of this award, it was Ellen. To celebrate her honor, I decided to share with you one of my favorite Ellen Show montages of her scaring her guests. Seriously, it makes me tear up from laughter every time. Watch it below.
This coming weekend, the hilarious-looking ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting‘ movie hits theatres and as promotion for the film, Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez stopped by The Ellen Show to chat about the movie, their personal lives, and the rumors of a feud between them.
The rumor-mill had been swirling and tabloids reported that the two didn’t get along on set. Do either of them read the tabloids? Yes – one does, but you’ll have to watch to learn who. The two discussed what it was like filming the movie and Lopez also chatted about whether or not she’d be doing Idol next season and the rumors that she was thinking about adoption.
Oh, and I’ve also included another clip of the show where Ellen performs with two stars from the long-running soap “The Young and The Restless” in Episode 2 of Ellen’s new hit soap opera, “My Fair and Square Lady.” The over the top JC Penney promotion is hilarious. Watch both clips below.
When you post photos on your personal Facebook page, I’m sure the last thing you think is, “I sure hope Ellen doesn’t reveal these on her show…” Be careful what you wish for. Ellen recently added a new segment to her weekly show titled, “You Posted That On Facebook” where she picks an incriminating photo from an audience member’s Facebook page and shares it with everyone. If you think that sounds a tad embarrassing, you thought right.
In this past week’s segment, Ellen picked 4 pictures. The first, pictured above, belongs to the young man in the photo who states he was dressed up as Adam for Halloween. Wait until you see what his Eve looked like. Ellen also shows a female audience member who was photographed taking pole dancing classes. My favorite part is when Ellen announces that if anyone needs change or singles, she’ll probably have some. The best photo though is saved for last. I’m not going to ruin it for you so check out the full segment below.
