Lenny Kravitz was his usual charming self in his interview for today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, and we got a little bit giddy when she asked about stories that everyone often congregated in his hotel room after the day’s shooting of The Hunger Games.
“That did happen; my room became ‘after hours,’ ” said Kravitz, who plays more-than-meets-the-eye stylist Cinna. “I was rehearsing for the world tour at the same time. … They listened to me play music. I had the wardrobe for the tour — there were racks of clothing everywhere, and Woody Harrelson would try out all my clothes and parade around the room.” Read more…
When I turned 18, I got a pair of Rollerblades and a pack of cigarettes. And wow, times have changed. For his 18th birthday, Justin Bieber got a Fisker Karma, an electric sports car that costs upwards of $100,000. But rather than be jealous, we’re kind of touched by the gift — because of the meaningful way Bieber’s manager Scooter presented it to him on Ellen, in an episode that will air today.
Jennifer Aniston, we figured out why you’ve allegedly had such trouble settling down. It’s because you knew, deep in your heart, that somewhere out there was a man who you could make breakdance for your entertainment whenever you wanted. You were so right to wait. “Ever since she saw Zoolander, she’s been obsessed with making me breakdance,” Justin Theroux said of his costar and lady love while visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. So obsessed, in fact, that Aniston shipped Theroux’s special breakdancing shoes directly to Ellen thus forcing her man to bust a move on-set. Jen and Justin: they may have met during the filming of the upcoming Wanderlust, but they fell in love between a basic toprock and a suicide corkscrew. No word, however, on who made Justin to wear those jeggings.
Taylor Swift and Zac Efron may or may not be teaming up in real life, but they did hit all the right notes on Ellen today when they busted out a little duet action. “I taught him how to play guitar,” enthused Taylor. “He’s really good at it for one lesson.” Hmm, so maybe that’s why these two were spotted out together last month. People practice their chord progressions over a romantic candle-lit meal, right?
After Swift squees over Zac’s first note, host Ellen DeGeneres cracks, “Only a girlfriend would react that quickly like that.” Ah, but if you pay close attention to their version of Foster The People‘s “Pumped Up Kicks,” Ms. DeGeneres, you’ll find you might be mistaken. Or not? It’s hard to tell. “It gets kind of weird, calling us out like we’re boyfriend and girlfriend/But it’s not, ’cause we’re just sitting here,” Efron belts. Who knew Zac Efron was such a great vocalist? A great lyricist…not so much. Either way, we hope these two duet more often. Get it? “Do it”? Because they’re dating? At least according to Ellen?
In a segment taped for today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen killed two homophobic birds with one funny speech: She celebrated the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ decision to overturn the gay-marriage banning Prop 8, and at the same time thanked JCPenney for keeping her on as their spokesperson, despite a protest by a group called One Million Moms.
“[N]ormally, I try not to pay attention to my haters, but this time I’d like to talk about it, because my haters are my motivators,” she told the audience, joking that she’s happy about keeping her JCPenney job, because she’ll get great discounts on T-shirts and socks.
DeGeneres went on to poke fun at the One Millions Moms for actually only having 40,000 members on their site. “So they’re rounding up to the nearest million and I get that,” she quipped. And to their statement that the department store is “jumping on the gay bandwagon,” she shot back, “First of all, being gay or pro-gay isn’t a bandwagon. You don’t get a free ride anywhere, there’s no music, and occasionally we’ll sing ‘We Are Family,’ but that’s about it.” Read more…
His Glamness Adam Lambert was arrested in Finland last month following a massive fight with his partner Sauli Koskinen outside of a club. The incident landed them both in jail, but now Glambert says things are fine between the two and chalks the whole thing up to much booze. He opened up about the experience on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this afternoon.
“What happened was, we had too much to drink. We screwed up,” he told Ellen. “There were no injuries, no violence. It was more of childish, foolish, messiness.” The argument between Adam and Sauli started in the Helsinki club DTM, but grew even more heated once they got booted out. When onlookers tried to intervene, Adam reportedly attacked them. Police were called, which resulted with several hours of jail time.”When you add alcohol to a situation, things can get out of control and some people can get upset and emotional,” he continued.
But things are still great between the couple, who were recently named the FABLife’s weekly Hotness. “I was a little irresponsible and I think what I learned from the experience was that I owe it to myself, to my loved ones, and to my fans to be a little more adult and pull it together.” Head under the jump to see what else Adam has to say!
Shortly after it was announced that Paris Jackson will make her movie debut in the live-action/animated film Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys, which begins filming next year, the 13-year-old stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show for a chat that will air on Thursday. And immediately upon seeing excerpts of her interview, we want to whisk her away and protect her for a few more years. She’s luminous and poised —- not at all suffering from the awkwardness normal people endure at her age. But she also has an air of gentleness, not unlike her father’s, that makes us worry that the world will want to eat her up too soon.
Paris told Ellen she loves going to school (she and Prince go to the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks) and feels like she has a “regular childhood” these days. “When I came to Buckley, they didn’t know who I was, so I was like, ‘Yes! I have a chance to be normal,’ ” she said, still kind of breaking our hearts.
Ellen asked if she thought her dad’s practice of making her and her brothers wear masks in public is what gave her that chance to be normal, and she agreed, though she wasn’t a fan of it at first.
“I’m like, ‘This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?’ But I kind of realized the older I got that he only tried to protect us. He explained that to us, too,” Paris said. Read more…
Looks like we’ll be missing out on a lot of awkward grimacing and exasperated eye rolls, now that Lindsay Lohan has bailed on her schedule taping of The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. Gossip Cop reports that Lilo allegedly failed to return to L.A. from her Hawaiian vacation, meaning her interview may have to be scrapped entirely. Don’t worry, Lilo! We can just tape a picture of you and Ellen to the wall and stare at it for an hour; that’ll equal out to approximately the same amount of uncomfortable silence!
Seemingly in support of their claims, Lindsay Lohan’s rep allegedly told Gossip Cop, “Lindsay was delayed in Hawaii due to a travel-related issue. She will be heading back this evening in time to appear in court tomorrow. Lindsay offered to tape Ellen tomorrow, but the show was unable to shift things around, and tomorrow is their last day of taping for the season.” Rumors suggested that the Lindsay Lohan Playboy pics that leaked last Friday would have been the focal point of their interview, which means we may now never know the answer to all our in-depth questions! Questions like, “What were you thinking?” and “Why did they make your lips look like that?” and “Did Dina tell you to do this? She did, didn’t she? That woman!”
Hilary DuffÃ‚Â spilled the beans onÃ‚Â an upcoming episode of The Ellen DeGeneresÃ‚Â show that airs this coming Monday. With all the interest surrounding her pregnancy, the wee songstress revealed that she’s going to have aÃ‚Â baby boy! It’s not that much of a surprise to her because she said she “had a feeling it was a boy the whole time.” About her pregnancy itself (it’s been four months), she’s been lucky enough not to go through any morning sickness just yet. “But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s kind of like a little alien has taken over your body,Ã¢â‚¬Â Hilary told Ellen, adding,Ã‚Â ”You just donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t quite feel normal. But itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cool. ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been good.” Great news! Now onwards with all the blue and yellow color coding for the little Duffster when he arrives!
We’re so glad she’s okay! Ellen DeGeneres had chest pains yesterday and 911 had to be called! The emergency occurred during a producers meeting at the Warner Bros compound, resulting in one of Ellen’s staff members calling for help. The Burbank Fire Department sent a team a little before noon. Ellen explained on her show that the pains started the night before saying, “… What happened was last night I was having chest pains so this morning paramedics came to look at me …”
Luckily, she’s fine and was seen walking without any assistance after the Fire Department left. The whole explanation she gave on her show was truly hilarious with her continuing with, “… The paramedics were strippers that I had called!…” Ellen tweeted a thankful message reassuring everyone she was okay, writing, “Thank you all for your concern. I wasn’t feeling great so I called the paramedics, but I’m fine. The mouth to mouth was totally unnecessary.” Humor really is the best medicine! We’re so happy to see her in top form after that scare.
