Sorry I was MIA here yesterday - busy schedule. Here's a little something for those early birds.
Ellen has been making headlines the past few days as she was pegged to replace Paula Adbul's empty chair at the "American Idol" judges table.
My feelings on that are on par with the L-E's resident AI expert, Sonya.
But that's not the only breaking news about America's new favorite talk show host.
Thanks to Evil Beet (one of the best celebrity gossip blogs I've found), I read this moring about some legal issues The Ellen Degeneres show is running into in the way of song licensing.
And it seems whoever is representing the Ellen Show wasn't taking the issue too seriously, citing "(we don't) roll that way" as the reason for not obtaining licensing.
I'm never home when Ellen's on, but I've caught snippets of the show over the past couple of years and I must say it's generally pretty entertaining. She gets good guests on and usually has audience members participate in some kind of interesting activity.
I'm surprised that 1) it's taken this long for any legal action to take place concerning the licensing and 2) that the show seems so fair-weather about it. Copyright infringement is a pretty big deal.
