Liza Minnelli has certainly seen her fair share of drag queens impersonate her over the years, but the iconic performer didn’t think Ellen DeGeneres joking that she looked like one at the Oscars was very funny, reports TMZ.

"I think she thought it would be funny, but she never stopped after she said it and said, 'my friend Liza Minnelli.' So I think it went a bit astray on her," Minnelli told TMZ.  

However, Minnelli says she wasn’t offended by the bit of fun the Oscars host tried to have at her expense, saying, "I don't think she meant any harm at all, and she's a wonderful lady."
