VIDEO: Ellen DeGeneres Tears Up During Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony

After almost not being allowed inside the White House, Ellen DeGeneres had an emotional moment while being presented the Presidential Medal of Freedom!

The talk show host was one of 21 stars who received the medal from President Barack Obama at a ceremony in the East Room on Tuesday (November 22) in Washington, D.C.

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the highest honor that a U.S. civilian can receive and Ellen teared up while being given her medal.

“In a career spanning three decades, Ellen DeGeneres has lifted our spirits and brought joy to our lives as a stand-up comic, actor, and television star. In every role, she reminds us to be kind to one another and to treat people as each of us wants to be treated. At pivotal moments, her courage and candor helped change the minds and hearts of millions of Americans, accelerating our nation’s constant drive toward equality and acceptance for all,” the announcer said while she stood on stage with Obama. “Again and again, Ellen DeGeneres has shown us that a single individual can make the world a more fun, more open, more loving place, so long as we ‘just keep swimming.’”

Other stars who received the medal included Tom Hanks, Diana Ross, Robert De Niro, Bruce Springsteen, Robert Redford, Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, basketball players Michael Jordan and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill and Melinda Gates, and more.

Adam Driver Watches Jon Stewart Roast Donald Trump at Stand Up for Heroes 2016!

Adam Driver happily flashes a smile alongside Staff Sergeant, US Army Michael Kacer, while attending the 2016 Stand Up For Heroes Gala Concert held at The Theater at Madison Square Garden on Monday (November 1) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actor was joined by Bridget Moynahan, and performers of the evening Bruce Springsteen, Jim Gaffigan, Jerry Seinfeld, Louis C.K., Jon Stewart and Phillip Phillips.

Jon hit the stage with a 15 minute set about the race for the presidency, roasting candidate Donald Trump in the process.

“To be here tonight with you guys, my heroes, on the eve of the last American election is so exciting,” Jon expressed (via CNN). “I’m not in the game anymore. I’m not as much of a political analyst… but if I could ask you a question that I’ve been saying to my television, it’s ‘What the [expletive deleted]? What the [expletive deleted] is going on? What is happening?!’ I thought when a guy got off a bus and says, ‘I’m going to grab her by the [expletive deleted],’ then okay, we’re done. The election is over. Usually that is a signifier that we don’t have to pay attention anymore.”

Bruce Springsteen Opens Up About Suffering From Depression in 'Vanity Fair' October 2016 Cover Story

Bruce Springsteen looks pretty badass on a motorcycle for the October 2016 cover of Vanity Fair magazine.

Here’s what the 66-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On struggling with depression like his father: “You don’t know the illness’s parameters. Can I get sick enough to where I become a lot more like my father than I thought I might?”

On working out: “I had a body that just kind of popped in six months. But if you want to get into it deeper, my father was built big, so there was some element of ‘O.K., I’m 34. I’m a man now.’ I remember my father at that age. There was the idea of creating a man’s body to a certain degree. I suppose I was measuring that after my dad. And also, perhaps, in some way, trying to please him.”

On his upcoming album: “It’s a solo record, more of a singer-songwriter kind of record.”

Bruce Springsteen Cancels Concert Because of Anti-LGBTQ Law

Bruce Springsteen has cancelled a North Carolina concert after an anti-LGBTQ law was passed in the state.

The 66-year-old rocker was set to play at Greensboro Coliseum Complex on Sunday (April 10) but after learning that the law would ban transgender people from using the bathroom that aligns with their gender identity in schools and government buildings, he took a stand.

Bruce took to his official website to explain his decision.

“As you, my fans, know I’m scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law. HB2 — known officially as the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act — dictates which bathrooms transgender people are permitted to use. Just as important, the law also attacks the rights of LGBT citizens to sue when their human rights are violated in the workplace. No other group of North Carolinians faces such a burden. To my mind, it’s an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress. Right now, there are many groups, businesses, and individuals in North Carolina working to oppose and overcome these negative developments. Taking all of this into account, I feel that this is a time for me and the band to show solidarity for those freedom fighters. As a result, and with deepest apologies to our dedicated fans in Greensboro, we have canceled our show scheduled for Sunday, April 10th. Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards,” he wrote.

Fans who planned to attend the show can get their tickets refunded at their point of purchase.
