Ellen put Taylor Swift in the hot seat to answer some of her "Burning Questions." Find out what Taylor thought about putting Joe Jonas “on blast”, her favorite TV shows, and why she sometimes eats like a "raccoon in a dumpster."
Ellen DeGeneres is on television every weekday. Sometimes she’s on twice. Her daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, brings in more advertising revenue than Dr. Phil’s and Kelly Ripa’s combined, and her prime-time special, Ellen’s Game of Games, gets consistently good ratings.
DeGeneres produces movies, voices a popular Pixar character, has her own digital content network, and has earned at least $500 million on endorsement and TV deals, according to a Bloomberg Billionaires Index analysis. She has her own lifestyle brand and last year formed a partnership with Walmart Inc. to create a clothing and accessories line that’s awash in American flags and rainbows and is sold in 2,300 Walmart stores. “I’m still gay, by the way. It’s really working out for me now,” DeGeneres said in her Netflix stand-up special last year.
Ellen DeGeneres’ cameo in Taylor Swift’s new music video for the anti-homophobia anthem “You Need To Calm Down” should really have come as no surprise.
It turns out that the host of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” actually dropped major hints about her appearance in the video in an interview with the pop star that aired mid-May.
The audience laughed, likely because they thought it was a joke.
Swift replied, “yeah, I mean, that would be a dream, would you wanna do that?”
DeGeneres pretended to deliberate and then agreed.
Swift later revealed she’d left a so-called “Easter Egg” during their chat ― which many fans interpreted to be DeGeneres’ cameo.
Ellen DeGeneres is coming to the defense of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
The talk show host, 61, is the latest star to show her support for the royal couple, who have been under fire recently for their decision to use a private jet to get to their vacation destination.
After news of their getaway to Nice, France with their son Archie broke, headlines focused on their use of the private aircraft, as some claimed it seemed to contradict their stance on protecting the environment.
On Monday, however, DeGeneres weighed in on the issue and argued in a message on Twitter that Meghan, 38, and Harry, 34, were undeserving of the criticism.
The comedian also noted how after meeting the couple in England with her wife Portia de Rossi, she was impressed by how “down-to-earth and compassionate” they were.
Naomi Osaka called out Ellen, saying she "did her dirty" by texting her celebrity crush Michael B. Jordan the last time she was on the show. Plus, the tennis superstar discussed her admirable sportsmanship in her US Open match against Coco Gauff, and explained why she hid from Brad Pitt.
On her show Friday, DeGeneres applauded the tennis star for being honest and transparent in interviews.
“I like just being straightforward and honest, so yeah that usually gets me in a lot of trouble, like with you,” Osaka responded with a laugh.
When asked to explain, she said, “Because last time I was here, you just did me dirty.”
