This photo of Nicki Minaj and Ellen DeGeneres' anaconda is so funny… but so bad
Ellen DeGeneres is gearing up for the new season of her talk show with the help of Photoshop and Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" music video.
The hilarious host posted a picture of herself on Instagram on Wednesday in a full "Anaconda"-inspired outfit, including cutoff denim shorts, huge gold hoops and a headband. In the image, DeGeneres is bent over while Minaj touches her anaconda. No, really.
DeGeneres captioned the photo, "This is happening. Five more days until the season premiere. #Anaconda."
Perhaps this is a clue about upcoming guests for the new season? Either that or it's just an awesome excuse for DeGeneres to flaunt herself and give Minaj a shout-out at the same time. Could DeGeneres get any cooler?
Executive producer, Ed Galvin, also took to Twitter to share his love for the photo idea.
We know that The Voice judges, Adam Levine, Pharrell, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton, will be joining DeGeneres during Monday's premiere for a fun The Voice-inspired racing game by the looks of it.
Will they be the only guests or does DeGeneres have other surprises in store?
DeGeneres has definitely been on a funny stunt roll lately. She recently appeared on the final episode of Chelsea Lately, joining host, Chelsea Handler, in the shower. While DeGeneres was fully clothed, Handler was completed naked. That didn't stop an offended DeGeneres from confronting Handler about the fact she'd never been invited as a guest on the show.
Season 12 of The Ellen DeGeneres Show premieres on Sept. 8.
