Ellen Pompeo: I Want to Sing More!

Ellen Pompeo: I Want to Sing More!

Ellen Pompeo steps out on Saturday (March 26) to do some shopping in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 41-year-old Grey’s Anatomy actress bundled up in a peacoat for her day out.

Grey’s creator Shonda Rhimes recently told TVGuide that Ellen was apprehensive about singing on the show’s upcoming musical episode, “The Song Beneath The Song,” but she changed her mind after the first script read-through!

“Ellen Pompeo was very much, like, ‘Tell me we’re not going to sing and dance in the hall. This is crazy!’” Shonda said, “[but afterward, she] came up to me and said, ‘I never say I’m wrong, but I was wrong and I want to sing more!’ She’s having so much fun with it.”

“The Song Beneath The Song” will debut on March 31.

Is it just me, or does it seem like Grey’s is becoming (if not already there) completely desperate? It just seems like, ever since they killed off George, the show has gone completely downhill. I’m tired of these lame story lines with guns, car crashes and now a freakin’ musical. Really? Bring back the MerDer storyline and great opening/closing dialogues. Leave all of the other nonsense out of it. I’m completely disappointed in Grey’s. Anyways, I love Ellen!

Why people like Kaz, Sligo, and Infamously Cool are not banned is beyond me. They live their lives for trolling this site.

Kaz and Sligo can’t even speak English. They just go in every thread and string random words together, such as; “Not she good. Bad! No Not!” I try not to pay attention to them, but it’s hard when I can get a good laugh out of it.

Sorry, Grey’s, but Joss Whedon did the best musical episode ever on Buffy- “Once More, With Feeling”. Period.

Love Ellen Pompeo. I find it funny that they use Ellen so much to promote musical epy when in reality it not centered on her SL.
As always they’re trying to trick MD fans to watch and ppl are going to fail for it.

Anyway it’s always a pleasure to see pics of Ellen, she’s adorably gorgeous. I understand the mistake about her age, she looks younger then 41 :)

i was thinking the same thing. but it wasn’t successful on buffy – the one on grey’s looks different (at least from the promo)

Buffy’s musical was the best! Grey’s is going to be different though, not a musical they are singing the songs from the show, I the show really does have decent music

Wasn’t successful on Buffy? that’s a joke, right. It wasn’t a musical just to be a musical, it absolutely furthered the plot and was a pivotal episode that season. I have the CD and listen to it all the time- PLUS Joss wrote every song and the cast sang/danced and did an awesome job. It’s one of my favorite Buffy eps.

She look 48 @ 03/27/2011 at 7:22 pm

I hope she does not sing. People’s eardrums may burst.

she looks good!

Have you even seen the damn show?

Ellen’s character may have Grey as her last name but the show doesn’t revolve around Patrick and Ellen there’s other character’s actresses and actors that make up Grey’s wish people would get that through their heads and realize that those who choose to believe the show revolves around Ellen and Patrick are believing something that isn’t true give the musical episode a chance before you doubt it if your disappointed in Grey’s then don’t watch the show simple as that…..nobody said you have to watch it…. :)

Thanks for the pics JJ. Commentary is old news and laughable. I’ve heard this all over from Shonda but not from Ellen about wanting to sing more. Simply don’t believe it unless Ellen says it and she hasn’t. She did say that she thought people would like it on the Ellen G show but that they “made” her sing. Ellen G asked if that was her disclaimer and she laughed.
