While accepting the choice comedian award at Sunday's Teen Choice Awards, Ellen DeGeneres delivered an empowering speech to teens in the audience, which she wrapped up with a sweet dedication to wife Portia de Rossi on their seventh anniversary.
"It feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life where I was not chosen – I was the opposite of chosen because I was different," said DeGeneres, 57, about her struggle to come out in the public eye.
"And I think I want to make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now makes you stand out later in life," she continued, "so you should be proud of being different. You should be proud of who you are."

Lena Dunham's Scandal debut started out as a Fifty Shades of Grey situation that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) needed to fix.

Thursday's episode was all about feminist issues: the line between owning your sexuality and being abused, the scrutiny a successful woman is subjected to versus a man. Though the Girls creator met a tragic end, our heroine rediscovered her erotic power with – surprise! – a man besides Jake (Scott Foley) or Fitz (Tony Goldwyn).
That's right, Gladiators: Liv is officially a dominant.
