Here’s your daily pick-me-up: An entire compilation devoted to Ellen Degeneres laughing. To celebrate her 1600th show, the talk show host re-laughed at some of the best unexpected moments of her cracking up. You have to stick around to the end to see the woman who’s so afraid of falling into Ellen’s dunk tank that she makes the weirdest/best squeals of life.
Sophia Grace and Rosie never cease to make me laugh and then cringe a little bit. Sophia Grace is as adorable as she is slightly annoying. She seems to be getting better at singing…who knows where she will be in 10 years? Girl is hitting those high notes! I personally enjoy watching Rosie being Sophia’s personal doo-wop girl.

Justin Bieber’s acoustic “Believe” album was released earlier today. This morning Ellen posted a video of Bieber’s live acoustic performance of “Boyfriend,” that he did on her show. It surely made all audience members melt. I personally think that although he sounded good, Biebs sounds a bit tired. Overworked? Maybe a little. Hopefully he rests so he can grace us with another fun filled tour.
Nicki Minaj went on Ellen this morning to talk about the feud she apparently had with Mariah Carey a few months ago that was caught on video. Minaj says she “cannot hold a grudge,” and she doesn’t know if Mariah Carey is holding one. If she is? Minaj doesn’t care.
Minaj begged us and Ellen to believe that she’s NOT psycho. She also told Ellen about the strenuous hours already spent on the American Idol set, fearing she’ll say something nasty during upcoming live shows. Leave it to Ellen to eloquently tell Minaj what SHE thinks the popstar’s true problem is — that “Logical Nicki” likes to step back while “Crazy Nicki’s” passion gets the better of her.
Minaj also talked to Ellen about her dating life, specifically her ring and her New Year’s kiss. I’m not sure what is more embarrassing… being grilled on your dating life or being psychoanalyzed by Ellen Degeneres.

Bruno Mars was gifted with the most magnificent mistletoe kissing hat on Ellen today and immediately returned her gift with a juicy kiss. The “Locked Out of Heaven” singer is known for his stylish collection of hats so Ellen thought it would be a festive addition to his wardrobe.
The brim of the hat is wrapped with Christmas lights and garland, and a sprig of mistletoe bounces from the top, which in case you didn’t realize is a kissing tradition:
“Look at that,” Mars said about the hat. “This looks great, this is fashion to me.” Ellen added: ”It’s fantastic, and it’s useful. Not that you need it.”
Mars can really pull off any look… even a hat with a mini Christmas tree topper. A couple weeks ago, Ellen showed off some ugly Christmas sweaters too. She’s really got the best Christmas style.

After watching her promo tour for Les Miserables, I have to say Amanda Seyfried is becoming one of my favourite personalities ever. Every interview she does is ridiculously entertaining, case in point, her interview with Ellen Degeneres.
She has so many talents but here’s one you didn’t expect from her — or anyone really. Seyfried rapped 2Pac’s “California Love” while inexplicably wearing a frog mask. The YouTube comments are mixed so far, though matheuswoww‘s comment led the pack when I wrote this: “That’s the whitest thing i’ve seen.”

Perhaps she had a little liquid courage in her system? She admitted to David Letterman the other day that she indulges in a little alcohol before big talk shows so she can enjoy them more. Before Letterman’s show she had three drinks, partially supplied by his colleagues.
“I’ve never done a live television show — or afternoon — without some kind of liquid courage,” she said. “I understand that I have a problem maybe, but you know what? It really gets me through. I really want to enjoy my experience out here because it’s special.”
I’m crossing my fingers we never hear about Seyfried enrolling in a rehab program, but in the meantime this girl is absolutely hilarious. She totally owned rapping in a frog mask and I’m guessing that’s no easy feat.

No holiday is complete without someone wearing an ugly Christmas sweater, whether your aunt is legitimately wearing it because she thinks it’s funky or because your hipster friend Wheatgrass thinks it’s ironic. And when you really shop around, there’s an ugly holiday sweater for everyone!
Ellen premiered some of her favourite ugly Christmas sweaters on her talk show this morning and they were positively horrendous, but in the best way possible. The best thing is, they’re all REAL sweaters that you can purchase… we promise. Here are her favourites.
For the mom that means business:
For the holiday Ho Ho Ho

Khloe Kardashian went on TheEllenShow and got a special Christmas surprise from the talk show host. The Kardashian family releases an overly dramatic family photo every Christmas and since they’re all super busy they often have to photoshop the odd person in — this year they photoshopped in Lamar and her, Kendall and Scott. That’s why Ellen thought it wouldn’t be a biggie to photoshop herself wearing a red Santa Claus dress and hat across the very front of the photo.
“I’ve added myself, I hope you don’t mind,” Ellen said. “I have a a mock-up of what I’d like. Is that alright?” asked Ellen.
The X-Factor host also talked to Ellen about her Thanksgiving plans this year (she was working) and who made it to dinner.

Jason Sudeikis impersonated a slew of celebrities on Ellen today, including Simon Cowell, Ricky Gervais and Cher. It was all for one of Ellen’s favourite celebrity guessing games, and she got most of them right. The only person missing was his girlfriend Olivia Wilde!
Ellen also gifted Jason with bikini-clad self portrait of herself lounging on the beach, which probably meant a lot to him because he admitted to having a big old crush on her. No seriously, he like, collected photos of her for a newsletter and stuff.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our American friends! If you don’t know the history behind the holiday, Ellen did you a total solid by reuniting the famous Ellen Degeneres Show Players who have apparently toured all over the country.
They revealed so many facts they don’t teach you in school. For example, you probably didn’t know the pilgrims were originally going to name the dinner Hooray Buffet before settling on something more “seventeenth century,” or that the pilgrims apparently introduced a new game called cornhole.
In Ellen’s version, the pilgrims have wristwatches and are well acquainted with the intercontinental charm of Sophia Grace and Rosie. What would we do without Ellen’s history lessons?

Just like Jennifer Lawrence, I have a gender confused cat. My roommates and I originally thought our cat was a boy so we named
him her Earl… then a couple weeks later she had a new boyfriend named Noodle. Similarly, Jennifer Lawrence had a supposedly male cat named Oliver. Upon learning Oliver was actually a girl, Lawrence renamed the cat Chaz Bono because of course.
Lawrence went on Ellen to promote Silver Linings Playbook and described her cat’s “masculine energy.” Funnily enough, she says her cat pees on her down bed cover because she hates her, which kind of reminds me of the love/hate relationship Katniss has with Prim’s cat in The Hunger Games.
Lawrence also talked about her adventure swimming with sharks and how her mom hijacked her Oscar ballot.

British munchkins and Ellen regulars Sophia Grace and Rosie pretty much exploded at their most recent interview describing how it felt opening for One Direction. The ladies were dressed in pink frilly dresses and their trademark tiaras during their performance of Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
“It was so good, cause I’ve dreamed of being a pop star on a stage since I was two and a half or three,” said nine-year-old Sophia Grace.
They also revealed to Ellen who their fave members of One Direction are. While Rosie likes Zayn because of his fuzzy hair, Sophia Grace likes Harry because he’s a good bloke and waved at her and Rosie in the crowd.
The two young girls who become Internet celebrities after posting a video of themselves singing Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” in 2011, which has since gained 39 million views. At the end of the interview, they surprised Ellen with a special present — paintings they created themselves!

One Direction got felt up by some INCREDIBLY LUCKY fans on Ellen yesterday in what I’m sure was one of the most seductive prime time television games the guys have ever played. Three fans were blindfolded and told to identify certain members of the band by fondling them all over (well, PG fondling).
Naturally, prankster Niall managed to get one of the ladies to grope his arse while he was straddling Harry’s back, and strangely, none of this sounds out of character.
All three ladies got iPads for playing but that really doesn’t compare to getting a hug from the one and only Harry Styles… and feeling Niall’s toosh.
The guys also talked about their dating lives and confirmed who’s single. Harry, Niall and the recently broken up Liam are all ready to mingle, and described their perfect ladies. Niall is looking for an American cutey with a sense of humor and Harry is looking for someone funny like Ellen (though she seemed to be more into Niall).
Of course, they also performed their classic “What Makes You Beautiful” for the 5000-strong crowd, some of which were sitting on rooftops of nearby buildings.

The suddenly bearded Andrew Garfield went on TheEllenShow where he was cajoled into dancing badly for charity, and I have to say, he’s the best worst dancer I’ve seen. Andrew had to attempt every dance style Ellen held up on flashcards and for each one he performed correctly, $1000 was donated to Worldwide Orphan’s Foundation. How can you say no to such a worthwhile cause?
Styles included Gangnam Style, the robot, belly-dancing and the Irish jig. He managed to get all of them correct and although he ran out of time, he convinced Ellen to keep going, eventually earning the full $10,000.
The Amazing Spider-Man actor was quite proud of his beard, saying it only took him 29-years to grow. Ellen responded: “I guess it’s a big deal, like men want to know they can grow a beard.” Andrew replied, saying: ‘That’s the only reason to be a man.”
While Ellen tried to get him to talk about his girlfriend and former co-star Emma Stone, he dodged the questions, opting instead to talk about Denis Leary.

Miley Cyrus was pranked on Ellen today after a lightbulb burst and two sexy “electricians” came out to fix it. Turns out, the electricians were actually STRIPPERS in honour of Miley’s forthcoming nuptials and obligatory bachelorette party. The two muscly men thrusted and tore their white tanks off, right down the middle. While more modest celebrities might be embarrassed, Miley shouted “HELLZ YA” and slapped their asses because she’s pretty much that girl everyone wants at their party…
Miley also cleared up the silly rumour going around that she’s having more than one wedding. FALSE. “There’s some rumor going around that I’m having like 47 weddings,” she said. “I’m not! I’m having one wedding. That’s my day and whatever I want on that day, it will be about me in that moment and that look of love.” D’AW!

Miley also talked about her haircut. The haircut. Now can we all please shut up about it?

I’ve written a couple articles about Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ song “Same Love” now and it gets me EVERY TIME. No seriously, it makes me all teary eyed and weepy in the office because I’m overwhelmed at how beautiful the message is. Ben Haggerty performed the song with Mary Lambert on Ellen, bringing the audience to their feet.
Before they performed, Ellen, who is married to Portia de Rossi, told the audience how much the song means to her and why everyone should care about the artists: “No other artist in hip hop history have ever taken a stand for marriage equality like they have.”
I love one of the top rated comments on YouTube:
This song made me come out, don’t be afraid. I’m only 19 and it went really fucking good, I didn’t get any negativity from my family or friends, I got support and acceptance all around. But take it slowly, start with your best friends, then some of your family members, once I did that I made a status on facebook. Just make sure you word it out right. I only did that 2 months ago, and I’ve never been more happy, just remember in the end you’re doing it for yourself
I don’t know what’s more surprising, that Taylor Swift “found out” about earwigs (didn’t she spend time outdoors as a kid?) or that she was convinced the little critters crawl in your ears and eat your brain with their pinchers.
Everyone knows the most effective way to rid themselves of their fears is to get the bejeezus scared out of them. So Ellen had one of her crew members dress up as a giant earwig to scare the Red singer.
Taylor shrieked after the earwig snuck up behind her, but quickly tried to change the subject. Poor Taylor can’t catch a break on the Ellen show! Every time she bucks up the courage to go in for an interview, Ellen does something to scare her and it seems like she gets angrier each time. Check out the compilation (second video) of her getting scared four times.

Ellen Degeneres showcased the type of ingenius children’s Halloween costumes that parents make their kids wear, despite their six-year-olds adamancy to be a Powerpuff Girl again. Even though the kids don’t usually understand the costume their parents made them wear, in the end, it’s all about the candy.
Ellen showcased some adorable costumes that were both timely and relevant to both politics and pop culture. Check out some of my faves and the video below.

Selena Gomez lost her cool twice on Ellen after costumed monsters snuck up behind her and pounced in the middle of the interview. The first time, Leatherface tiptoed to her chair and blasted a chainsaw behind her and the second time a caped Dracula yelled into her ear. Gomez flipped her lid, cowering in her seat while the audience laughed at the hilarity (way to give NO WARNING audience).
It’s pretty fitting considering one of the starlet’s favourite places IN THE WORLD is this place called Knott’s Scary Farm, where she hesitantly explores the mazes with boyfriend Justin Bieber, half covering her eyes. She’s also starring in a Halloween-appropriate animated movie called Hotel Transylvania with Adam Sandler. The movie is about Count Dracula, who goes into over-protective mode when his daughter (Gomez) meets a boy.
We love that Selena was such a good sport about the whole thing, especially after the second time. That’s pretty much an all time record on the Ellen show! I’d also be mildly scared to go on the Ellen show from now to Halloween because sh*t is going to go down.
I have to say I’ve written so much about the great K-Pop god that is Psy lately that I’ve practically run out of adjectives for awesome. Psy made his second appearance on Ellen today with an epic performance of “Gangnam Style.” He wore a tuxedo and his trademark glasses, dancing with a bevy of white-clad dancers.
While we’re kind of missing Britney Spears from this equation, we love that Psy went out to the audience and danced with guests. But I have to warn you that overexposure to the track might burn you out. So take it easy.
