The Ellen ascendency

Posted By on 10.22.08 at 09:17 AM

Kanye debuts the first video off 808s & Heartbreak on Ellen, and now an Obama guest appearance. She's clearly taking it to the next level, and I don't exactly know how it happened (genial stand-up with big debt to Bob Newhart -> prominent out celebrity -> best thing about Finding Nemo -> tastemaker). I demand some kind of throwdown for final daytime talkshow supremacy.
