In 2010, a video of Greyson Chance singing Lady Gaga's "Paparazzi" at his middle school went viral on YouTube, catching the attention of Ellen DeGeneres.

Now, in an interview with Rolling Stone, the singer discusses his experiences with the popular talk show host. He told the outlet, "I’ve never met someone more manipulative, more self-centred, and more blatantly opportunistic than her."

About a week following his Lady Gaga performance, Greyson recalled that "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" staff contacted his mother to ask if her son could appear on the show.

In May 2010, after interviewing Greyson for the first time, Ellen gifted him a new piano and $10,000. She soon signed Greyson to her record label, eleveneleven.

Greyson confessed Ellen became "domineering and way too controlling" as his career took off. He recalled a time when Ellen saw his video of a performance he had scheduled for a different network. The host was not happy with what she saw, and told him and his team to redo everything.

Eventually, Greyson was dropped from Ellen's label. He then retired from music at age 18, going to college to study History. But instinct drove him back to creating and releasing music again.
