The Ellen DeGeneres Show has been airing for 12 years now, and the surprising bits of inside scoop from celebrity guest appearances have become one of the show’s major cachets.
That said, one of the show’s most recent guests was Justin Bieber. His session with Ellen DeGeneres was among the most notable this week. And as expected, Ellen DeGeneres wasted no time putting Bieber on the hot seat. Beginning with the Xenia Deli ‘thing,’ she stated that they looked great together, while referring to a picture of the two posing for the “What Do You Mean?” video and then went in for the kill by asking if he was currently seeing anyone.
The question caused Justin to break into a sweat, take off his hat and try to distract the show host by playing with his hair, but Ellen skillfully avoided the bait by gently nudging him back to the question stating, “Pay attention to the dating question!” Justin then confessed he was single, which elicited a bit of cheering from the audience. He added the following, according to Hollywood Life.
“I’m in a place now. I don’t know if I’m ready for a relationship right now.”
Fifty Shades of Grey’s Dakota Johnson was also on the show today and dropped a few hints on what it is like to be a star on the film, which premiered in February this year and how people react when they see her in person. The following was the statement, according to Us Weekly Magazine.
“Well, sometimes, people just say things that are a little bit awkward for me. Like, I was in a cab recently, and the driver was like, ‘My wife and I, we saw your film. We really liked it.’ And he goes, ‘…I thought there could be more sex.”
Asked if she felt that guys were scared of dating her, she replied, “You mean, like when they run away from me? I don’t know… I guess that if those are the two options, I guess they’re scared of me. They either love me or they’re running for the hills.”
On to the story about Ronda Rousey slamming Andy Lassner, the Ellen DeGeneres Show executive producer to the floor, he got a bit playful on set and pushed Ronda just before a demonstration of her armbar tactic. She went on to use it on him forcing, him to tap out.
