Ellen Has an Instagram Confession


Oh, boy. OK. I have a confession to make. My name is Ellen Degeneres and
I am addicted to Instagram. [CHEERING] [APPLAUSE] Sounds like there’s
some other people. How many people here are
addicted to Instagram? [CHEERING] All right, very excited
about it, are you? Very, very. [LAUGHTER] I didn’t think it was
going to get to this point. I signed up for
Instagram and I was just kind of fooling around. I just thought, I’ll
follow Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber, baby goats. [LAUGHTER] Just kid stuff. And then I started
following a Kardashian here, a Kardashian there. And obviously, that
led to the Jenners. And then I got into the harder
stuff– food, cats, Beyonce. [LAUGHTER] Now, I follow everything
on Instagram, everything. I follow art. I follow architecture. I follow watches. I follow dogs, both on
Instagram and on the street. If I see one, I will
just follow a dog. I started posting pictures
of myself, which that’s when you’ve gone too far. There’s no need for people
to see everything I do, but I think that it’s important. Here are some things
I Instagrammed lately. The first one is me helping JLo
get ready for her Vegas show. [LAUGHTER] I was doing some
mirror work with her. [APPLAUSE] I don’t know. I thought it was important. We’re besties. I want people to know
that we’re besties and somehow that makes me
feel better about myself. I posted a picture of my
first day of season 15 because I was going
back to work and parents were posting pictures– [APPLAUSE] –of their kids. I just post random things
that I think are cute. I posted this picture
of a baby doing pushups. [LAUGHTER] I posted that because it’s
a baby doing a pushup. I mean, how do
you not post that? I spend so much
time on Instagram. I noticed something interesting. Here’s the thing. Here’s Beyonce’s Instagram page. Look at this. She has over 100 million
followers, 100 million followers, very impressive. Look at this. She’s following zero people. [LAUGHTER] Zero. So now, I have a
new goal in life. I want to become the one
person that Beyonce follows. [CHEERING] [APPLAUSE] That’s all. That’s all I want. I’d ask her in person,
but our Illuminati meeting isn’t until next month. [LAUGHTER] So I’m going to do something
to get her attention right now and I need all of your help. I want to get all 400 of you
doing the “Single Ladies” dance, OK? So you’re going to stand up. Stand up, everybody. All right. And Twitch is going to come
over here and I want all of you to follow as closely as– because if we do this right,
we’re going to Instagram this. And if she sees it
and you help me, we’re all going to celebrate. All right? [CHEERING] [MUSIC – BEYONCE, “SINGLE
LADIES”] (SINGING) If you
like it, then you should have put a ring on it. If you like it, then you
should have put a ring on it. Don’t be mad once you
see that he want it. If you like it, then you
should have put a ring on it. If you like it, then you
should have put a ring on it. If you like it, then you
should have put a ring on it. Don’t be mad once you
see that he want it. If you like it, then you
should have put a ring on it. Yes, yes! [APPLAUSE] Wow. Thank you, Twitch. Wow, thank you. Thank you so much, Twitch. Hopefully Beyonce will see that.
