You remember the “Apparently Kid,” who won us over earlier this year during his impromptu broadcast on a local news channel? Well, he’s back to remind us why we love him so.
Noah Ritter, the blunt kindergartner who’s incredibly fond of the word “apparently,” visited Ellen DeGeneres again after the talk show host sent him out for a day of fun at the Texas fair. From his trip, we learned that he hates LA pizza, has no problem telling other people how to drive, is nicknamed “Noah Police Junior,” why the TVs in hotels are “a big fail,” and that mirrored mazes aren’t his strong suit. Never change, Noah. Never change. [Mashable]
“Frozen” overload seems to have peaked sometime over the summer, and by now about a thousand mediocre covers of “Let It Go” have shoved their way into our lives, but this one is too awesome to ignore. Both Kristen Wiig and Ellen claim not to know the words to the song, but that doesn’t stop them from giving it a shot. As you can imagine, hilarity ensues. [Huffington Post]
Nothing brings joy to our hearts and barren wombs like “Apparently Kid”! And his appearance on “Ellen” yesterday did not disappoint. Noah Ritter — the five-year-old boy whose interview with a local newscaster went viral for his strong opinions about carnival rides and adorable overuse of the word “apparently” — took some time out from kindergarten to visit Ellen DeGeneres. Noah filled her in on his new favorite word and the perils of walking to the bus stop. Someone get this kid an agent! [YouTube]
Nicki Minaj’s video for “Anaconda” is ridiculous, but doesn’t quite know it’s ridiculous. Ellen Degeneres’ spoof of the video on the other hand? It revels in it. Love Ellen in those doorknocker hoops, too. Good look for her!
“I knew I would be a happier person … I did not anticipate just how happy I would feel in every aspect of my life. Just an ease and a comfort. And it’s really been quite extraordinary to feel just the shift. It was pretty much overnight, too,” Ellen Page said about coming out in February.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that’s set to air on her show later this month, Page said, “It’s so nice to have people come up to me and tell me their story or, you know, say, ‘Hey, I’m closeted. Can you give me advice?’ Those are really beautiful moments to get to share with people.”
It wasn’t until after her announcement that Page realized just how much tension and exhaustion she’d been feeling while keeping her sexuality a secret. Even DeGeneres tells her how much more relaxed she seems. Watching the two Ellens talk about their shared experience of coming out in the midst of a high-profile career is about as warm and fuzzy as it gets. Excuse me while I tear up at my desk! [People]
