Ellen DeGeneres most powerful gay celebrity
The 56-year-old Celebrity talk show host Ellen DeGeneres secured the spot on US Out magazine’s 2014 Power List. This is yearly ranking of the most powerful LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) influences in American civilization.
Ellen who is married to ‘Arrested Development’ actress Portia de Rossi, has been named the most powerful gay celebrity in the US.
Announcing the news on its website, the publication stated, “Everybody loves Ellen, and that’s one of the reasons she’s regained the top spot. In March, ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ shattered its own 10-year ratings record in the episode that immediately followed her Academy Awards hosting gig, which also gave the awards its best ratings since 2004.
“And her star-studded Oscars selfie almost shut down Twitter when the pic became the most re tweeted ever.”
Other remarkable names on this year’s list contain ‘Good Morning America’ host Robin Roberts, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, fashion designers Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, ‘How I Met Your Mother’ star Neil Patrick Harris and ‘Glee’ actress Jane Lynch.
