Republican Kelly Clarkson Says She’s Voting For Obama — And 18 Other Celebrity Endorsements

‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”

Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.

Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Jennifer Livingston on Ellen
Jennifer Livingston on "Ellen"

If you thought Jennifer Livingston was the shit before, now you’re going to want to marry her. A video of the Wisconsin news anchor went viral last week when she responded to a random jerk’s cruel email complaining that she’s a bad influence on viewers, especially women, because she is obese. The man admitted he doesn’t even watch her news program, but went out of his way to concern-troll about her body and take her — and all women — down a peg. Livingston responded with both chutzpah and grace — not denying that she is overweight, but questioning the rudeness of this man to tell a stranger she should be ashamed of herself.

Yesterday, Jennifer Livingston visited “Ellen” to talk about her response, bullying, and how one cruel comment is one comment too many. Livingston also said  addressing this rude email was never about getting an apology from the man, although he did eventually apologize. It was about showing everyone who gets picked on that the bullies are the problem, not you. “Clearly I am not the shining example of perfect health and I never claimed to be,” Livingston said, “but that doesn’t mean my worth should be [makes small gesture] this big.”

Hear, hear. How rad is she?  [Ellen TV]

Amy Poehler is really not doing much to discourage my desire to kidnap her children and raise them as my own. Archie and, squeeeee, Abel (my favorite, if I’m being honest) sound do frickin’ adorable! And it sounds like Amy is an awesome mom and all signs indicate that she and, sigh, Will Arnett are handling their recent split with maturity and grace.

Clint Eastwood Tells Ellen He Supports Gay Marriage

Throwing his feet up on the coffee table isn’t the only thing Clint Eastwood is totally relaxed about. During his interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Eastwood shared his views on gay marriage and his libertarian beliefs: “Socially, [they believe to] leave everyone alone, but [they] believe in fiscal responsibility and government staying out of your life.” DeGeneres then pressed Eastwood — who famously spoke to an empty chair at the Republican National Convention earlier this month — about his stance on gay marriage, noting that he had previously said he had no problem with it. Eastwood’s response was again, “Leave everyone alone!”

Olivia Munn On Ellen
Watch Video

Just the other day, we were talking about celebs we love so much that we’re afraid to meet them because we would, like, die of embarrassment and love and obsession all at once. Julie calls this I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death.  (Mine are Kate Winslet and Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20. Don’t judge.)  On today’s “Ellen,” Olivia Munn got to meet her I Love You So Much I Want To Squeeze You To Death celeb … and it’s Ellen Degeneres. There’s squealing. There’s shrieking. There’s a weird crouching-butt-squeeze hug. And there’s a date to go kayaking and see Olivia’s new movie, “Magic Mike,” together. Is it just me or does Ellen genuinely look freaked out? [Ellen
