Ellen DeGeneres Celebrates Her 2,000th Episode with Justin Timberlake, Jennifer Aniston and a Tequila Toast.

Mani Ahluwalia, 15, already has a Justin Bieber bedspread, two Justin Bieber DVDs, four Justin Bieber fragrances, and nine Justin Bieber albums including My World, My World 2.0 and My Worlds Acoustic.”I’ll tell you something, if someone had told me I was gonna make 2,000 shows, first of all, I would’ve asked for a lot more money,” DeGeneres joked. “I would have said, ‘You’re crazy.’ 2,000 is a lot.” DeGeneres was surprised by both Jennifer Aniston – who came bearing a welcome mat (the same one she gifted DeGeneres as her first-ever guest) – and the always-charming Justin Timberlake, who was her second-ever guest.The What Do You Mean? hitmaker will kick off his 58-date tour on March 9 in Seattle, which will end with a show at New York’s legendary Madison Square Garden on July 18th.

The comedian aired her 2,000th episode Thursday, and marked the occasion with a special show featuring Jennifer Aniston, Justin Timberlake and Kerry Washington. “We’ve had 8,302 guests and 1,145 bands and together they’ve gone through 4 million barrels of whiskey,” DeGeneres joked about the milestone during her monologue. The 21-year-old’s massive world tour will also visit Vancouver, Los Angeles, Nashville, Cincinnati, Fresno, Orlando, Miami, two nights in Brooklyn, Boston, Fargo, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Chicago, Baltimore and Atlantic City, among others. After the two discussed the fact that the “Friends” star had been DeGeneres’ very first guest when the talk show debuted in 2003, Aniston told her pal, “I think it’s time to bring sexy back.” “You’re two of my favorite people,” the “Finding Dory” star told her guests, after marveling they were able to keep their appearance a secret from her. The Brampton resident is hosting Purpose Buyout Toronto, a meetup for Bieber fans to buy not just one copy of the polarizing pop star’s fourth album, but to buy all the copies in stock at the HMV Superstore at 333 Yonge St. Television Group, Peter Roth, who announced that for only the fourth time in the studio’s history, a stage is being renamed in her honor. “I officially dedicate Stage 1, which forever more will be now known as The Ellen Stage,” Roth said, presenting a misty-eyed DeGeneres with a new plaque.

Advance tickets are available to American Express card-members, who can buy tickets starting at November 16 at noon (Pacific Time) through November 19 at 10pm. The release on lucky Friday the 13th of the highly anticipated Purpose, his fourth studio album, and the announcement of a 58-date North American tour herald the return of the prodigal Canadian son. The extra copies will be donated to SickKids. “I know a lot of kids at SickKids are huge fans of Justin,” Ahluwalia says, noting a friend is an outpatient at the children’s hospital. The host was also visited by Kerry Washington, who performed a sparkling rendition of “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” on a tuba to win money for her charities, the Purple Purse Initiative and Turnaround Arts.

The kid from Stratford, Ont., got the ball rolling this summer with Where Are U Now?, the Skrillex/Diplo collaboration that began to open new ears for his music. Her other not-so-secret goal? “To promote Justin Bieber’s CD because I am personally a huge fan,” she says. “To promote it, to help the sales.” Hoisting a sign that an American friend she met on Twitter mailed her, Ahluwalia will lead a parade of Beliebers from Yonge-Dundas Square to HMV at 2 p.m. on Saturday. Washington also brought DeGeneres some special Olivia Pope-style Scandal wine glasses and a bottle of red, saying, “You really have changed the landscape of how we love each other in the world.”

Presale on Fahlo next week.’ The Sorry singer has been busy promoting his comeback with appearances on The Ellen Show this week, and teased his tour while chatting with Ellen yesterday. The singer, who recently told Ellen that he may one day reunite with ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez, was pictured out in Los Angeles on Tuesday with Josie Canseco, the daughter of baseball star Jose Canseco. Purpose was leaked online late Wednesday, two days ahead of schedule, and the attendant fan hysteria offers a reasonable gauge of just how huge this is going to get.

Only the top tier of teen idols whip up this kind of frenzy: Shawn Mendes, Demi Lovato and Five Seconds of Summer are on the short list of acts that sparked buyouts in Toronto in 2015. (One notable outlier: when former Toronto Raptor Amir Johnson bought $900 worth of Drake’s 2013 album Nothing Was The Same to hand out in Yonge-Dundas Square.) Marie Bomba, Director of Foundation Relations at SickKids, has received these kinds of donations since 2013, usually in batches of 20 to 25 CDs. “We use gifts like this in a number of ways,” she says. “It may be a gift for the holidays, if they celebrate their birthday in the hospital, or some milestone, like if they finish chemotherapy treatment, we might give them a reward. Cast your mind back to a time before all the bratty behaviour, drug and alcohol related mishaps and general rudeness to fans had obscured what he can do and you’ll recall that Bieber is actually a talented musician and singer. A buyout for Demi Lovato’s Confident that was held in Toronto on Oct. 17 was blasted in a blog post on Oh No They Didn’t titled “Demi Lovato Uses Dubious ‘Charity Action’ To Inflate First Week Album Sales,” who questioned if the CDs would really be welcomed by a generation that can stream any music at any time.

But Melissa Michaels, the 21-year-old Ryerson photography student who co-hosted the event, says that teenagers are often forgotten when people donate gifts to SickKids, as people tend to think of toys for little kids first. “Music is something that really comforts teenagers,” she says. “Music has the power to inspire, to save. It’s not even fair.” Speaking of Skrillex, that musical magician is but one of several grand fromage artists who make their presence felt on Purpose. For others who feel that way as well, it’s nice to get an album.” “It helped me believe in myself when I was in high school,” she says. “I wasn’t very happy and I was looking to transfer schools. Bieber has collaborated with Skrillex on several songs on the new album; also, Travi$ Scott (who counts All That Matters among his favourite songs — really), Nas, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and Halsey are also present and accounted for.

It helped me get through that difficult time.” She has no regrets about using Lovato’s album release to rally others. “For us, we felt this was right, to support Demi as an artist while giving back to the community around us,” she says. “If others feel like they want to support their artist and give back, this is a great way to do it and they shouldn’t let people tell them otherwise.” After almost a year on the mea culpa trail, Bieber has apologized for his tabloid-hogging behaviour, publicly reaffirmed his faith, revealed a hitherto unknown sense of humour by agreeing to a celebrity roast, posed in a Calvin Klein undies ad like a boss, stopped hanging with bad companions and (more or less) quit his diva behaviour. Likewise, he’s just spent every day of the last week on her program, helping build anticipation for Purpose and interacting with fans in a way that could warm the cockles of your heart. Much as DeGeneres has thrown her support behind the guy, the bottom line in all this is that Bieber appears to have put his nose firmly to the grindstone.

As his manager, Scooter Braun, said recently of Bieber’s startling comeback, the lad did it himself: “The only person who deserves credit for this is Justin.”
