What President Obama Is Saying About Ellen DeGeneres’ Oscar Selfie!

Published

on

Remember when Ellen DeGeneres shut down Twitter with her Oscar selfie? Well the talkshow host reminded the nation’s President that she is indeed the reigning queen of the retweet.

“I don’t know if you know this, but I was aiming to break your record of retweets and I apologize for doing it, but I broke your retweet record,” she told Obama during an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday.

Being the sarcastic man he is, the President responded via satellite: “I heard about that. I thought it was a pretty cheap stunt myself, getting a bunch of celebrities in the background, feeding them pizza.”

During the 86th Academy Awards, Ellen, who killed it as host, took an amazing selfie with some of Hollywood’s heavy hitters. In an effort to get as many retweets as possible, DeGeneres took a snapshot with: Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper, Kevin Spacey, Brad Pitt, Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong’o.

And to no surprise, the selfie went on to not only break Obama’s number of retweets from when he posted an image of himself and the First Lady after being reelected, but in the first hour, completely shut down Twitter.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
