Ellen DeGeneres has just had a landmark birthday.

Happy Birthday Ellen DeGeneres.

She’s just turned 60. The star has become an incredible and powerful voice for LGBT+ rights. In the 90s she broke all boundaries when she came out on her sitcom, Ellen. She came out at around the same time on Oprah. It was a time when most TV stars were firmly in the closet. Instead of damaging her career, the move went on to cement Ellen in the hearts of millions of Americans.

Today Ellen is one of the most successful people in show business and is worth hundreds of millions of dolloars.


USA Today made this video to celebrate the six reasons, one for each of her decades, why they love her… We agree with every one of them.
