Paris Jackson tells 'Ellen' her famous father Michael Jackson 'only tried to protect us'

Paris Jackson appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show today to promote her first role in an upcoming film, Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. Explaining that she took the role in the adaptation of Dennis H. Christen’s fantasy story because of it’s eco-friendly, philanthropic message (50 percent of profits will go to schools), Jackson said, “I know my dad always wanted to heal the world, and so I think it would be great to follow in his footsteps.” Jackson also discussed her memories of her father, including some of his more controversial parenting decisions. See what else she had to say below. READ FULL STORY

Russell Brand shoots down break-up rumors, talks kids on 'Ellen'

Russell Brand dropped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today. In his interview, the funnyman addressed rumors that he and wife Katy Perry are on the verge of divorce. “There are always rumors, aren’t there? In the end you have to just not engage with Internet technology,” he said, then joked, “which is difficult because a lot of the nude women websites I quite enjoy!”

Brand called the Internet “a wicked little liar” and added that “being famous is like a little bit of you is taken away, and goes off, and lives on its own and does what it wants.” Still, he insisted, “I’m married to Katy perpetually. ‘Until death do us part‘ was the pledge. I’m still alive!” Brand also talked about having kids in the interview. See his take on the possibility of little Brand-Perry babies after the jump.


Selena Gomez talks Justin Bieber, and her inability to get him to pull up his pants

In an interview airing today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Selena Gomez admits dealing with that paternity suit filed against her boyfriend Justin Bieber was crazy “to say the least,” but Ellen doesn’t stop there with the sensitive questions. “I think you have influence, and I think you can tell him to pull his pants up,” DeGeneres says to applause. “I really can’t,” Gomez answers. “I’ve told him I don’t get it.” What does he say then? “He laughs,” Gomez says. Watch a clip below.

Ellen also asks what Selena does to compete with Justin’s grand romantic gestures — like renting out the Staples Center for a dinner date. “My favorite is that mine don’t get out,” she says. (Good answer!) “That’s my favorite. Obviously, that’s very sweet, but I like to do things that are a little bit different, and he always gets mad because everything he does gets out.”  READ FULL STORY

Eddie Murphy discusses whether he'll curse during the Oscars and if he'll ever return to 'SNL' -- VIDEO

While there’s no way to know for certain what kind of Oscar host Eddie Murphy will be until the actual broadcast, he’s dropped some clues along the way while he’s been out promoting his new comedy, Tower Heist. From what he’s told reporters and fellow former Academy Awards hosts, including David Letterman and, today, Ellen DeGeneres, he’s going to be “the worst host ever” by not doing any musical numbers, wearing a powdered sky-blue tuxedo and losing control of his bladder. (In other words, the lone three things James Franco and Anne Hathaway didn’t do.)

Still, Murphy is uncertain of one aspect: Whether or not he’ll curse. During a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which airs today, the actor/comedian who had penchant for profane stand-up acts, said, “I don’t plan on cursing. I’m not going to, when I get to the Oscars… say ‘S–t!’ I’m going to say other things… every now and then, a curse may slip out. I’m not planning on it, but who knows?” Watch the preview clip below: READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres opens up about 'American Idol': 'Some [contestants] are not as grateful as you would expect.'

It takes a certain type of person to be a reality competition judge. You have to be willing to say exactly what’s on your mind, you have to accept that the contestants and their fans will likely hate your guts at one point or another, and if you’re on The Voice, you have to be able to put up with motion sickness. (Stop. Spinning.) Ellen DeGeneres found out the hard way that she was not cut out for the reality judge lifestyle after her one-season stint on American Idol.

The daytime talk show host recently talked to Parade magazine about her short time on Idol and what ultimately prompted her exit from the show last year. READ FULL STORY

Poll: Who's your favorite stand-up comic of all time?

As any entertainer will attest, making someone laugh is always harder than making someone cry. It takes an entirely different skill set and taps into an entirely different, and arguably, more complicated psyche. (What makes one person roll with delight could make another roll their eyes with disgust.) Of course, if you’re one of the great stand-up comics, you can accomplish both: Making your audience laugh so hard they cry.

Then again, having to choose your favorite stand-up comic of all-time might be just as difficult a task. Do you go with the rule-breakers of comedy who not only made you laugh, but made you think and often called for — and often effected — social change? Do you pick a mainstream comic who can finely pinpoint all those funny little quirks of everyday life through observational comedy? Or is it a no-brainer to pick the class clown that plays up the silly side in of all of us? READ FULL STORY

Ellen DeGeneres gets hot and heavy with Keith Urban

With the exception of maybe Tom Six (and let’s all be seriously thankful for that) just about every celebrity out there has their own line of fragrances these days. But, before you go turning your nose up at the fact that country singer Keith Urban has just released his own cologne called Phoenix, check out the spoof he did while visiting The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday. It definitely doesn’t stink, PopWatchers!

Watch the full clip below to see why Keith Urban claims Ellen DeGeneres is the only woman that his wife, Nicole Kidman, would let do those things to him. Those things, of course being, licking his face and throwing ice at him. READ FULL STORY

Oprah Winfrey still top-earning woman in Hollywood, but look who's catching up

Lady Gaga may have passed Oprah Winfrey on Forbes‘ annual list of The 100 Most Powerful Women this year (Gaga fell from No. 7 to No. 11, while Winfrey slid from No. 3 to No. 14), but Winfrey still sits atop the magazine’s list of Hollywood’s Highest-Earning Women. Winfrey made an estimated $290 million between May 2010 and May 2011, which is $200 million more than Gaga banked in second place. As Forbes notes, however, with Winfrey’s show gone and her network yet to deliver on high expectations, that gap may close come next year’s rankings.

Coming in at No. 3 is Bethenny Frankel with $55 million, thanks to her Skinnygirl branding savvy. She beats out Gisele Bundchen, Ellen DeGeneres, Taylor Swift, and Judge Judy Sheindlin, who are in a four-way tie at fourth place with $45 million each. Process that. The rest of the Top 10: Katy Perry ($44 million), Beyoncé Knowles ($35 million), and Danielle Steel ($35 million).

Kellie Pickler brings s'more laughter on her latest 'Ellen' appearance

I always make a point of catching The Ellen Degeneres Show when Kellie Pickler is the guest. Those two are a riot!

Yesterday, Kellie stopped by Ellen’s chatfest to promote her new country single “Tough” as well as her upcoming appearance on 90210. The results were hilarious.

After a playful chat about her marriage, her Minnesoooota mother-in-law, and her tendency to get easily startled, Kellie was treated to a “relaxing” chocolate spa facial by Ellen. The whole segment felt like a scene straight out of I Love Lucy.

Trust me, these clips will brighten up your day: READ FULL STORY
