Ellen says to Ryan Seacrest in an interview:
"I was like, 'Can she please change because this is going to be very awkward and this is a daytime show.' It's not the VMAs. She's gonna show up doing this and then it's gonna air tomorrow during daytime and then she's sitting, ya know, on my show in a meat dress and it's gonna be weird for her.
"Whether you're vegan or not, it's just weird to be sitting next to somebody wearing slabs of meat on their head and their body. It's gross, you know. Even if you eat meat, it's gross."
