It's rather clear at this point: Bruno Mars was the proper choice to perform at halftime of this year's Super Bowl.

With thousands of votes cast, over 75% of THG readers have given the singer's halftime show an A.

But Jody Rosen, a New York magazine, initially took issue with Mars as the game's selection, saying he isn't a true star because he doesn't have a "clothing line" or "fragrance."

In response, Mars appeared on Ellen this week and blasted this take as "by far the most disgusting thing I've heard."

Why?

Katy Perry and John Mayer sort of dissed Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's "Bound 2" music video in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres today.

The cute couple joked with Ellen about how their own cheesy music video for "Who You Love" stacks up with Kimye's much-parodied love-fest.

"Was it your response to Kim and Kanye's 'Bound 2?'" she asked.

"Yes. I thought our response was a little bit more authentic because my hair was blowing in the right direction, though," Katy Perry joked of the video.

"She was facing backwards, right? So her hair should have been [blowing the other direction]," DeGeneres added of Kim straddling her baby daddy.

In the "Who You Love" video, Perry, Mayer and other couples ride a mechanical bull together. A metaphor for rocky relationships, perhaps? Sounds like it.

The toddler who danced her heart out to Beyonce and became a viral phenom has taken her fancy footwork to - where else - Ellen DeGeneres' Show!

Heaven (a.k.a. "two-year-old dances to Beyonce" on Google) showed that she's picked up a thing or 20 from her mother, who's a dancer and choreographer.

Her videos, posted by mom, racked up hundreds of thousands of views, and after her appearance on Ellen, that number will likely climb. Big time.

Heaven's awesome, on and off the dance floor!

Watch her put Ellen in her place (1:20), then stay for the encore performance of Beyonce-inspired dance moves and the big surprise Ellen had for her ...

Ellen DeGeneres invited Kai, an adorable 4-year-old singer, to perform on her talk show Thursday, and he did not disappoint with his Bruno Mars cover.

The youngster's version of "If I Was Your Man" could use a little polish in post-production, but look at him work the crowd like a seasoned veteran!

With the fedora and button up, he's basically Bruno Mars' mini-me. Somebody's got to arrange an intro between these two ASAP. Ellen, you on that?

It's not Kai's first trip to Ellen. He first caught her attention by singing another Bruno song, "Grenade," in a video that went viral online. See it below:

It's the song that's blasting on every radio station across the U.S.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' "Thrift Shop" started out as a viral hit last fall, but quickly went mainstream and catapulted the Seattle duo up the charts.

Check out their performance of the hilarious, catchy song (featuring Wanz on vocals) on Ellen January 21, complete with a custom, thrift shop style gift.

It's true, everyone with their own show needs a jacket like that:

Will "The One That Got Away" be Katy Perry's sixth straight #1 hit?

She hopes so, and thinks today's video release date might be good luck.

On Ellen DeGeneres' show this morning, Katy noted that if you took six #1's and lined them up, you'd get 11/11/11. We totally didn't think of that earlier.

Check out the video, which debuted during her interview with Ellen, and see if you think it's up there with some of her other recent, instant pop hits:

Not bad, huh? She sure does love dressing up in elaborate costumes.

On a really cool note, Perry announced that she will be holding a special free concert at Staples Center in Los Angeles for all her fans on November 23! Free!

Switching gears, she says she wants to start "poppin' kids left and right" before long.

"As long as it doesn't hurt the first time. I'll keep popping them out," Katy claims.

So basically, she and Russell are only gonna have one kid, but it'll be cute!
