Ellen: Jason Mraz Music & Happiness
Ellen DeGeneres said she loves and appreciates Jason Mraz’s music. He praised the talk show host for giving it such a prominent role in her show. Ellen said that’s because it’s such an integral part of life.
“Music is the weapon in the war against unhappiness,” Jason Mraz said. Ellen said she got a sneak preview of “I Won’t Give Up” before it was released, and she fell in love with the song back then. But when she tried to reach out to Jason about it, she learned he was in Antarctica.
Ellen: Jason Mraz & Al Gore Antarctica
Jason Mraz said he was in Antarctica with Al Gore, learning about climate change and hanging out with penguins. He and Ellen agreed that penguins are not the freshest smelling animals. While on the trip, Jason got a chance to share music with the researchers who’ve been working there for extended periods.
Surprisingly, Jason said they have a gift shop in Antarctica, which is where he picked up a bumper sticker during his visit. I guess there’s nowhere you can travel to that doesn’t have a gift shop.

Ellen: Tom The Cat RIP
Ellen recalled that when she and Portia De Rossi bought their farm years back, they inherited a feral cat named Tom, who quickly became part of their family. “He was the most special cat I have ever known. He was tame, he was fearless, he was loving, and he became part of our family,” she said. “He slept inside every single night.”
Sadly, Tom had a stroke on Sunday and passed away on the morning this show was taped. “We’re going to miss him like crazy,” Ellen said, showing pictures of the cat to conclude today’s show.
