Mindy Kaling Talks About Her Dating Life on ‘Ellen’

Mindy Kaling is a successful OB/GYN but her personal and dating life is a mess. Oh wait, that’s Mindy Lahiri, the fictional doctor she plays on her show The Mindy Project. But according to Kaling, it seems as if many people in real life confuse her with the fictional character she plays.

Currently, Kaling is single and dating, but she’s running into trouble dating because she is a lot more conservative than Mindy Lahiri. During her appearance on Ellen, she says that she’s not someone who could “drink eleven martinis” or “have a one-night stand” because she has her medications to take at night. And she has to floss.

As you can imagine, that might lead to some complications. Ellen’s solution? A bedazzled pill box for all her (non narcotic) medications, complete with labels for every day of the week.

The Cutest 3 Minutes of Your Day: 6-Year-Old Kai Finally Sings With Bruno Mars

 

Fans of The Ellen Degeneres Show are certainly no stranger to Kai Langer. After all, this 6-year-old has been making Ellen’s audience smile for the past two years.

During the many, many times Kai has appeared on Ellen, he’s sported his trademark fedora hat. This is, of course, to mimic his idol Bruno Mars. If you need proof of his passion for Bruno Mars music, just check out the video his mother uploaded onto YouTube. This video of Kai singing “Grenade” catapulted the 4-year-old into viral fame and caught the attention of Ellen.

Since his first appearance, we’ve seen Kai passionately (and adorably) sing “When I Was Your Man,” “Treasure,” and “Marry You.”

So what could possibly be better than a fedora-wearing 6-year-old singing a Bruno Mars song? How about a fedora-wearing 6-year-old singing a Bruno Mars song with Bruno Mars? That’s right. We finally have footage of the adorable duo together and this time, they’re singing the hit single featuring Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk.”

I don’t know about you, but I certainly can’t wait to see Kai rocking that pink suit and those hair curlers.

 

 

Technically this isn’t the first time that Kai and Bruno sang together. As Kai was flying back home from his first appearance on Ellen, he was coincidentally placed on the same plane as Bruno. After casually introducing himself with a “Hi Bruno,” the sang together and took pictures to prove it.

But obviously, this is so much better than pictures.

Want to see how it all started? Check out Kai singing his heart out to other Bruno songs.

Steven Yeun On How Korean Parents React To A Career In Acting

 

Steven Yeun recently went on Ellen as a first-time guest to promote the return of The Walking Dead. During his interview, he talked about his parents as well as the blood poisoning injury he received on set.

After Yeun admitted that The Walking Dead was his second audition ever in L.A., Ellen asked the Korean American actor if his parents approved of his decision to pursue acting as a career.

“No, my parents are Korean, and traditionally, that first generation of Korean Americans aren’t too happy with the little curveball that you throw them when you’re a kid,” said Yeun. Although his parents weren’t happy with his decision at first, Yeun told Ellen that they were now proud of him as an actor and would even give him advice about the entertainment industry.

“My dad wanted me to wear a suit everywhere I went,” Yeun said, adding that his father would tell him to wear a suit, even when he would go out to buy oranges. “He’s like, ‘You should get a suit … what if they get you and then you’re not in a suit? Then you look stupid.’”

 

Later in the interview, Yeun talked about how he got blood poisoning after performing a stunt where he falls and lands on his arm. When his arm started to bleed, he wiped off the blood and thought nothing of it until his arm swelled the next morning. As a result, he had to get a steroid shot and an antibiotic shot in the buttocks.

“And the nurse, she said I had a very taut tushy. I’ve been doing squats,” Yeun said.

“What a wonderful compliment,” Ellen responded. “I love when they compliment your butt right before they put a shot inside of you.”

The Walking Dead‘s fifth season will premiere October 12 on AMC.

7-Year-Old Cellist Justin Yu Meets Ellen, Charms His Way Into Our Hearts

 

I don’t know about you, but at the age of 3, I was probably spending my days watching cartoons, drinking out of juice boxes and trying to figure out how on earth people colored inside the lines. What was Jun Justin Yu doing at 3? Learning how to play the cello.

Justin Yu is the son of Chinese composer and conductor Ziliang and Korean pianist Rho Aera. After learning how to play the cello, it wasn’t long before Yu went beyond the wildest dreams of any musical parent. After being accepted into the Herald Music School gift class, Yu performed in a number prestigious venues and most impressive of all, he made his debut in Carnegie Hall in 2012. Of course, he did this all before the age of 6. Now at the age of 7, Yu has been accepted by the Manhattan School of Music as one of the youngest cellist in school’s history.

On September 24th, Yu made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to give us a taste of his breath-taking skills. As it turns out, this young prodigy not only has an incredible amount of talent, he also has an incredible amount of personality.

Yu quickly charmed his way into our hearts with his large facial expressions and adorable stories. He talked Ellen’s ears off about everything from his boring plane ride to his hilarious victory dance.

Check it out for yourself. Trust us when we say this will be the best 4 minutes of your day.

MUST WATCH: Talented Filipino YouTube Sensations on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”

Months ago, a video of a pair of young and talented musicians went viral. The only problem? No one could identify them. For a while, different YouTube sources were placing various labels on the mysterious duo. One source titled the video “Asian kid,” while others took a stab at guessing their race. Finally, it was confirmed that the pair are from the Philippines, but all other information about them remained a mystery.

That’s when Ellen Degeneres set her sights on finding the talented boys and sent out a public invitation.

Months later, the teenagers were identified as Aldrich Lloyd Talonding and James Walter Bucong. The two musicians accepted Ellen’s invitation and found themselves in Burbank, Calif., to perform in front of an excited audience.

During the interview, it was revealed that Talonding’s father passed away in June due to non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Because of this, their cover of Luther Vandross’ song, “Dance with My Father,” became even more meaningful.

The boys talked about handling YouTube stardom and girls, and even went home with a handful of goodies (a guitar and a piano!) and a check for $10,000. Watch their breathtaking performance below:

Audrey’s Artist to Watch | Ryan Wang, 5-year-old Piano Prodigy

At the age of five, most of us were learning how to properly write out the alphabet, play duck-duck-goose,  and strategically avoid getting cooties. Ryan Wang on the other hand? This five-year-old piano prodigy was spending his days getting ready for his performance in New York’s prestigious Carnegie Hall.

At the age of three, Wang’s parents noticed Ryan’s affinity and natural ability with the keyboard. Without missing a beat, the two decided to send him to piano lessons. While many people would assume that three is far too young an age to adequately master an instrument, Ryan’s talent proved everyone wrong. After a mere year and half of lessons, a prodigy was created. Of course, Carnegie Hall was not the only one to notice this amazing 5-year-old. Ellen Degeneres asked him to come onto the Ellen Show and dazzle her viewers. Clearly, Ryan didn’t disappoint:

Even more recently, CBC Music Studio invited Ryan to perform in front of his biggest fan, Dorothy. The 101-year-old family friend was touched to discover that Ryan would be performing just for her. Not only does Wang prove to be mature in his musical abilities, he showed quite a bit of emotional maturity. Understanding how important this performance was to Dorothy, Ryan was moved to tears (and brought us all to tears while he was at it):

Easily becoming a prodigy favorite, Ryan Wang is scheduled to tour Italy and China this summer. Be sure to keep an eye out for this amazingly talented young man.
