Is 7-Year-Old Piano Prodigy Elias Phoenix The Ellen DeGeneres Show's Most Memorable Guest?

Originally posted 01/20/2014 03:00PM



Elias Phoenix had two goals in life: Play Carnegie Hall and visit Ellen DeGeneres on the set of her talk show. At the age of 7, he can cross both of those items off his list.

From the moment the pint-size prodigy steps onstage in this clip from Friday's episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, it's clear he has a personality to match his musical talent. Not only is he wearing a sharp ensemble that includes a fedora, vest and sparkling bow tie, Phoenix is a whirlwind of energy, showering DeGeneres with compliments and a steady stream of full-body hugs.

Meryl Streep Jokes That She's 'Old News' After Record 18th Oscar Nod

Originally posted 01/17/2014 05:30PM

When this year's Oscar nominations were announced Thursday morning, Meryl Streep says she was fast asleep, firmly convinced that her scene-stealing work in August: Osage County would be overlooked by the Academy.

"They all say, 'Oh, she doesn’t have a chance'… because I'm so old news, you know," Streep told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview set to air Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as she recounted her standing among oddsmakers.

"There is no such thing as talent being old news. That doesn't get old," DeGeneres reminded Streep amid wild cheers from the studio audience. Indeed, Streep had earned another nomination – her 18th, setting an Academy Awards record for an actor or actress.

Kim Kardashian: I'd Have 'a Million' More Kids, but It's Not That Easy

Kim Kardashian could talk for hours about family life with baby North and "amazing dad" Kanye West, but has less to say about West's recent alleged altercation with a man in Beverly Hills.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 33, is so enamored of her 7-month-old daughter that her dreams for an ideal family have grown even bigger.

"I always wanted about six. After having her, I would have a million," Kardashian says in an interview airing Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Katy Perry: Why John Mayer and I Often Don't Speak at Home

Katy Perry: Why John Mayer and I Often Don't Speak at Home

Originally posted 12/20/2013 10:25AM

Silence makes the heart grow fonder? Maybe so at Katy Perry and John Mayer's house.

Both singers need frequent vocal rest – Mayer has needed it critically due to his serious vocal-cord problems – and so, quite often, their home can be oddly quiet.

"I understood that he couldn't talk, and the only way he could communicate was through an iPad," Perry, 29, says in an interview airing Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "Some days I have to go on complete vocal rest, like no anything, no whispering. Whispering is actually really bad. There's just a lot of silence in our house most of the time."

Originally posted 12/11/2013 08:00PM

Ellen DeGeneres wants the world to know that despite reports to the contrary, she's "happily married" to Portia de Rossi.

The talk show host addressed rumors about their five-year marriage during a hilarious monologue on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday, that began with a trip to the hair salon.

"The other day I'm at the hair salon getting these extensions," DeGeneres joked. "And there's tabloids all over the hair salon – that's where they are, I guess. All of a sudden I notice one sitting on the counter in front of me [and] it caught my eye because Portia and I were in the top right-hand corner and I thought, 'Oh, that's sweet, they're honoring us.' "

Originally posted 11/30/2013 11:45AM

Both on- and offstage, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood are in perfect harmony.

Brooks, 51, stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show Friday to chat about his wife of eight years, with whom he recorded a remake of "After the Fire Is Gone" – one of a handful of songs featured on his new box set, which just hit stores.

During the sit-down, the country crooner recounted first meeting Yearwood back in 1987 – he was already married to his college love Sandy Mahl then – and according to Brooks, his connection with Yearwood was immediate.
