I love you guys. If you want to see me, come visit me in Florida,” Siegel said. Siegel celebrated four decades of his show in January 2021. Last year, a controversy surrounding Siegel had fans wondering about his future. In May 2021, Siegel said he was told by a boss to stop talking about pop star Demi Lovato, who earlier in the morning came out as non-binary and asked to address her with gender-neutral pronouns. Siegel had expressed his opposition to Lovato’s decision.
