As anybody who reads The Frisky knows, there’s been a 500 percent increase in sloth coverage since I’ve been hired. That’s because I’m obsessed with them, and hope that one day I will be able to hang out with them, cuddle them and love them. Kristen Bell is obsessed with them, too. And her boyfriend Dax Shepard surprised her this year with a visit from one on her birthday — with unintended results. [Ellen]
Remember Lindsay Lohan’s plans to debut her Playboy issue on Ellen? Well, there will be no such interview. Following her very eventful Hawaiian vacation, Lindsay failed to hop her early flight back to L.A. yesterday for the taping. So much for that.
The consolation prize, for those that were hyped to hear what Lindsay had to say? Paris Jackson, daughter of Michael, appeared on Ellen in Lohan’s place. The episode, which airs on Thursday, will mark the 13-year-old’s first ever solo interview. Judging by the video preview, which you can watch on Radar Online, Paris seems surprisingly normal and well-adjusted despite her upbringing and the controversy surrounding her father. I, for one, am glad Lindsay bailed — this interview with Paris is bound to be more interesting, and what could Lindsay possibly have to say that we haven’t heard from her before? Trainwrecks are tedious when they only play one note.
“A constant 14 percent of the feedback I get is hate mail. But a 100 percent of that 14 percent hate mail is about what what I look like: ‘I hate you not because of what you said, or some argument or some position that you have, but I hate you because you’re Rachel MadCOW, because you look like a cow’ or ‘you’re Rachel, but I’m going to call you him.’ (fake laughs) That’s the funniest joke in the whole world! It’s the same joke every time. … I want new hate mail. I want it to be about something other than me being mannish and cow-like.”
— Rachel Maddow and Ellen DeGeneres held a Kickass Lesbian Summit today on “Ellen” and chatted about a new documentary about women in the media, “Miss Representation,” which airs tonight at 9 p.m. on OWN. I am not at all surprised that Rachel Maddow even got “you’re ugly!” hate mail when she was on the local radio. I’m sure 99.9 percent of people probably didn’t even know what she looked like.

Not going to lie: this video of Nicki Minaj surprising the ballerina dress-clad “Super Bass” girls on Ellen DeGenere’s talk show made me start crying at my desk. They performed “Super Bass” for Ellen’s audience (watch here) and then she told them that Nicki was there to meet them. Sophia Grace, 8, and Rosie, 5, are stupid-cute and obviously thrilled. But it’s really when the camera pans to their parents in the audience, who are sobbing, that I lost it. Nicki Minaj looks like she’s tearing up, too. Seriously, go into a conference room if you have to and watch this. It’ll warm even the bitterest of hearts on this Thursday morning. [Clutch Magazine]
