When he showed up on Ellen DeGeneres‘ show in March, Anderson Cooper looked ‘a fool when he refused to dance his way onto the stage — as is customary on Ms. DeGeneres’ show. So when he popped up on Ellen this week to talk about anti-gay bullying in schools, we thought maybe, just maybe, he’d prove that eventually the rhythm is gonna’ get you. Did it work?
Anderson Cooper: FAIL.
Even with Lady Gaga‘s “Just Dance” playing, The Coop is not shaking them hips. This is a man who swims with sharks! At least he admits: “I’m a loser … that’s how I roll. … I was born a WASP, we were taught, like, to suppress our emotions and feel bad about them.” Um? So. True.
But, a promise: On Ellen’s 2000th episode, HE WILL DANCE.
Dance, monkey! Dance!
