Ellen Degeneres' Cover Girl Commercial

Have y'all seen Ellen selling her soul to corporate America in this Cover Girl commercial? What do you think about it?

The first line of the commercial is "Inner beauty is important, but not nearly as important as outer beauty." I know that Ellen is probably just being funny and sarcastic, but it still bothers me. The whole thing bothers me, actually. I've always had a lot of respect for Ellen (and still do) but I'm a little disappointed she's become a spokesperson for the whole anti-aging cosmetic industry. I thought she was a little more... cool... than that.


  1. I JUST saw this! On one hand, I'm thinking, "COP OUT!" but on the other, I'm empathizing and thinking, "Hey, she's gotta keep making money, right?" It seems like such a poor endorsement to me.

  2. My goodness!!!! Thank god someone else out there is thinking the exact same thing I am! I felt so upset that she totally sold out and said what they probably wanted her to say. The first thing I thought was "she doesn't believe that at all!!!"
    I seriously want to write Ellen a letter asking her why she said that, because it was the most "Un-Ellen" thing to say. And she said it.
