Ellen DeGeneres aired a message today to anyone who takes issue with her sexuality: "haters are motivators." After JC Penney signed on the talk-show host as its new spokeswoman, the "conservative, pro-family" group One Million Moms called for a boycott. Ellen told her audience, "This organization doesn't think that I should be the spokesperson because I'm gay. For those of you who are just tuning in for the first time, it's true. I'm gay. I hope you were sitting down." The group had released a statement accusing JC Penney of "jumping on the pro-gay bandwagon" by hiring Ellen. But as Ellen pointed out, "Being gay or pro-gay isn't a bandwagon. You don't get a free ride anywhere. There's no music. Occasionally we'll sing 'We Are Family,' but that's about it." Watch Ellen look over the support she's received from her fans and explain her traditional values now in this moving, and of course humorous, clip.
