Afternoon Delight: Ellen wants her own “Movement”

Good afternoon and happy Monday!

Happy birthday to Mia Wasikowska, Lori Petty and Stacy Keibler!

Ellen DeGeneres and wife Portia de Rossi were among the guests who turned up for second annual Saving SPOT! benefit in Beverly Hills this weekend. The event for the non-profit, which is  dedicated to rescuing dogs from high-risk environments and placing them with caring owners, was also attended by Octavia Spencer, Allison Janney, Amy Smart and many other dog-loving celebs.

Speaking of Ellen, did you see her parody of MTV’s Miley Cyrus documentary?

Lea Michele shared a sneak peek of her album cover on Twitter over the weekend. How do you think it compares to the album art for her Glee castmate Naya Rivera‘s record (Sorry)?
