Ellen DeGeneres faces her 'SNL' impersonator, Kate McKinnon, and it's awesome -- VIDEO

Kate McKinnon’s perfect impression of Ellen DeGeneres has been a major highlight of this season of Saturday Night Live. So, when McKinnon stopped by Ellen, DeGeneres couldn’t pass up the opportunity to meet her doppelganger.  Ellen handed McKinnon a new outfit and had her come back out in character.

”I will treasure this forever!” McKinnon gushed as she hurried offstage to put on her Ellen costume. When she returned later, the audience was treated to dancing (McKinnon can really get down) and chair squirming.

”I’m vegan… I’m just kidding. I’m Ellen,” McKinnon joked to huge applause. Our only question is: why did they give McKinnon jeans with a huge hole in them?

Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper, and Frank Ocean make annual OUT Power 50 list

Apple CEO Tim Cook leads OUT Magazine‘s 7th annual list of the 50 most powerful gay men and women in America. Each year, OUT ranks the perceived power and prestige of entertainers, business leaders, politicians, and activists to determine the most influential people in the LGBT community.

Cook is followed by talk show titan Ellen DeGeneres, who holds onto the No. 2 spot for the second year in a row. Glee, American Horror Story, and The New Normal creator Ryan Murphy moves up into third place with MSNBC host Rachel Maddow at No. 4.

This year marks the first time Anderson Cooper is out publicly for his appearance on the list — he’s No. 5 — though he has been included in years past. OUT‘s decision to include power players that are not publicly open about their sexuality has been somewhat controversial and continues this year with FOX News anchor Shepard Smith, who ranks at No. 8, and Matt Drudge (No. 21).

Frank Ocean, who opened up about his bisexuality last year ahead of the release of his Grammy-winning Channel Orange, rounds out the top ten.

Neil Patrick Harris, Bravo exec Andy Cohen, fashion designers Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford, Suze Orman, Jane Lynch, X-Men director Bryan Singer, Oscar-winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, and RuPaul also appear on the list.

Visit OUT for the complete top 50.

Ellen DeGeneres discusses the Boy Scouts -- VIDEO

The Boy Scouts of America has decided to postpone its decision about reconsidering its ban on gay members for three months … and Ellen DeGeneres has a thing or two to say about it.

In her monologue, DeGeneres discussed the situation with her usual flair. As she put it, “They won’t let their members be gay, or openly gay anyway, but they’re letting them wear neckerchiefs and green short shorts?” READ FULL STORY

Bradley Cooper reveals his 'five nipples' to Ellen -- VIDEO

On the twelfth day of Ellen’s 12 Days of Giveaways, my true love Bradley Cooper revealed to me … his nipples.

The Silver Linings Playbook star stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday for show and tell. Last year’s Sexiest Man Alive revealed a few un-sexy traits — “five nipples” to be exact. That’s right, Cooper, who might be nabbin’ an Oscar come February, has three extra nubbins! It looks like Chandler Bing has some competition.

Ellen responds to 'SNL' spoof: 'I didn't like it. Just kidding, I like everything!' -- VIDEO

Ten points for self-awareness! Ellen DeGeneres was predictably gracious earlier this week when she addressed Saturday Night Live‘s recent spoof of her show, complimenting her impersonator Kate McKinnon and even imitating McKinnon’s imitation: “I didn’t like it. I’m just kidding, I’m Ellen! I like everything!” It’s nice-ception! Then again, it’s not like there was much in that sketch that DeGeneres could object to; “Ellen is genial and dances a lot” isn’t exactly incendiary.

Ellen also discussed the SNL bit with two of her guests, pint-sized Nicki Minaj fan Sophia Grace and her “hype girl” Rosie — both of whom were also lampooned on the sketch show. Hammy Sophia said that she thought Saturday Night Live‘s sendup of her was “brilliant,” though it would have been even “bettah” — don’t you love kids with British accents? — if impressionists Nasim Pedrad and Vanessa Bayer had shrunk a little. And for once, reticent Rosie had something to add to the conversation: “If she [Pedrad] wants to get like me, she should get more dahnces.”

Watch the videos below to get your daily dose of good vibes, though the second is kind of a cute overload.

Andrew Garfield belly dances for charity -- VIDEO

If only Spider-Man could dance his way out of the The Lizard’s clutches.

Andrew Garfield swung by Ellen — the episode airs today — debuting some new facial hair (Yay? Nay? Undecided?), as well as some new, not-Spidey-affiliated moves (Definitely yay!).

After talking about the planned sequel to Amazing Spider-Man, Garfield got down…to charity work. In support of Worldwide Orphans, Garfield agreed to perform various dance moves. Each correct dance in :45 seconds raised $1000 for WWO.

The best part is that even after the buzzer rang, Garfield kept going: There are still dances to perform and money to raise! And it’s a good thing he can’t be tamed: Without him powering on, we never would have gotten to see his 100% commitment to belly dancing — shirt lifting included. READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres is Sofia Vergara for Halloween -- VIDEO

Ladies and gentlemen, we have the celebrity Halloween costume to beat.

In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s devastation, the Today show canceled its annual Halloween showcase. But Ellen DeGeneres stepped up to the laughter plate today, showing her “cheeky” costume on this afternoon’s episode of Ellen: Sofia Vergara. Specifically, Vergara’s infamous Emmy dress that split open mid-ceremony, revealing (a bit NSFW) more than she bargained for.

“Happy Halloween. As you can see I put my pumpkins out,” DeGeneres said, gesturing to the fake chest spilling out of her dress. Mimicking Vergara’s accent, DeGeneres proceeded to explain that she thought Vergara’s voice was a bit overdone. “I get so much work with this fake accent,” DeGeneres declared.

But never fear that the host was being mean – mid-mocking, the real Vergara showed up, and she couldn’t hold back a smile. Despite trying to look angry, the Modern Family actress got the last laugh: “Your a** looks huge,” Vergara said.

Taylor Swift on 'Ellen': Which ex still rings her bell? -- VIDEO

Taylor Swift has a message for John Mayer, Taylor Lautner, Jake Gyllenhaal and more: Don’t send her angry emails.

Swift is on Ellen this afternoon, and in the preview clip below, she talks about trying to maintain “a shred of dignity” by not specifically naming names on songs about ex-boyfriends – because otherwise they’ll send her angry emails. Ellen DeGeneres teased her for awhile about Zac Efron – the two sang a very cute duet together when Swift was last on the program – but Swift insists they never dated, like ever. She was similarly tight-lipped about who “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” was about.

DeGeneres tried to solve the mystery, handing Swift a bell and telling her to ring it when the picture of the guy it’s about came up. She then showed pics of Joe Jonas, Justin Bieber, Mayer and others, but Swift remained silent.

Swift got introspective after many pictures, wondering what so many photos said about the length of her relationships. “There’s never been two guys on the screen two visits in a row,” she said. “It’s sad.”

She should write a song about it.

Check out the interrogation – complete with some telling silence after Cory Monteith’s picture – below: READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres on Twain Prize: 'Why didn't I get this sooner?'

Some of the nation’s top comedians hailed Ellen DeGeneres as a trailblazer Monday night as she received the nation’s highest humor prize.

The Kennedy Center is awarding DeGeneres the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. The show will be broadcast Oct. 30 on PBS stations.

“Thanks to everyone at PBS. I am so happy to be part of your farewell season,” DeGeneres joked in accepting the prize and taking a jab at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s plans to stop funding public broadcasting.

On the red carpet before the show, DeGeneres said she doesn’t see herself as political with her comedy, though, even though she’s been a trailblazer.

“I just want to make people happy and make people laugh,” she said. READ FULL STORY
