Gretchen Rossi interview

Seacrest interviews Rossi during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her TV show The Real Housewives of Orange County. 

She [Tamra] disappeared and I’m like: ‘Where did you go?’ Then finally she was like: ‘Eddie whisked me away to a tropical island.’ And I’m like: ‘Ah b****, you’re getting engaged.

Flo Rida interview

Seacrest interviews Flo Rida during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his single Wild Ones. 

I can’t wait to celebrate once again. We had ‘Good Feeling‘ at number one, now we need ‘Wild Ones’ to go to number one. I’m pretty sure moms is bringing me the good luck by conversation with her right now.

J.R. Martinez interview

Seacrest interviews Martinez during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his role in Voters in America: Vets Wanted documentary. 

As a proud veteran, I am always honored to have an opportunity to help my brothers and sisters in the Armed Forces. CNN’s documentary, Voters in America: Vets Wanted? highlights the extraordinary perseverance, skills, strength and character that our veterans have to offer employers as they return to America and re-enter civilian life. Transitioning to civilian life can come with a lot of challenges – I certainly have lived some, but I hope through this documentary to do what I aim to do every day: to try to inspire other vets to do what we do best: always remember why we never give up and why we do what we do – for our love of country and family.

Bethenny Frankel interview

Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about breakup rumors in the tabloids.

No, he didn’t move out, he lives here, but we do argue like we do on the show. And it’s been a stressful last year. I’m not one to lie or sugarcoat it. This is my marriage, I love my husband, and I’m committed to my marriage and my family, but marriage is not easy. Maybe it is for other people, but I’m not an easy person. He’s actually not an easy person, and it’s not easy to be married to me with everything that goes on in my life. It’s just a whole weird thing.

Andy Cohen interview

Seacrest interviews Cohen during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his book Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture. 

I’ve been in TV for 23 years, these are the stories I tell my friends just to crack them up about what goes on behind-the-scenes. I’ve been so fortunate, I was always such a huge fan of pop culture, grew up 2 inches from the TV, always wanted to be in TV and on TV and this is kind of a dream come true story of how it happened. Also, it’s just stories that I wanted to share, just very funny things that have happened in my career and my life, that people wouldn’t believe to be true, but very much are.

Kim Kardashian interview

95pSeacrest interviews Kardashian during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her spray tan twitter photo.

I got a spray tan. And when you get a spray and you let it sit for like 8 hours you are I was so dark. So I just had to take a picture and say ‘Tanorexic mom has some major competition.’ But it washed off, and don’t I look normal? It’s just a lot of bronzer that washes off.

Howard Stern interview

Seacrest interviews Stern during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about judging on America’s Got Talent. 

I don’t know. I’m trying it out this year, and I want to see if America likes it then you know it would influence me. I have a year deal, and an informal thing if I come back a second year.

Malin Akerman interview

Seacrest interviews Akerman during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her singing in the film Rock of Ages. 

Not really, this is a little bit different because we recorded the song and then it was on playback while we were shooting on set. When you’re on a stage singing rock and roll you can just scream the notes that you can’t hit.

17 May, 2012

Peter Berg interview

Seacrest interviews Berg during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about directing Rihanna in the film Battleship. 

I can’t believe nobody thought to put her in a film and I got to be her first director. She just came to play and brought such a great energy and such a great creative spirit. She just kicks ass in this movie.

Khloe, Kourtney Kardshian interview

Seacrest interviews Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Kanye West.

Khloe:

I remember Lamar at first it took him a minute to get used to us, but now Lamar loves it. And with Kanye I was like: ‘Why are you hiding in our pantry in my mom’s kitchen? There’s just so many of you guys, and you guys are all so loud, and friendly, and talk.” and I’m like: ‘get used to it buddy. Because I like it.’ It’s just a lot at one time.

Kourtney:

I don’t think he knows what’s going on. Like what we’re talking about, are we being serious, is this a joke? Lamar raps to him all the time. Kim is like: ‘You’re going to freak this guy out.’ But it’s funny.

Donald Driver interview

Seacrest interviews Driver during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about being on Dancing With The Stars. 

This is what I told Peta before we even started, that I wasn’t putting the see through shirt on and all of that. So, I haven’t had to wear that yet. I’ve worn the stretch pants, I just have to figure out, I don’t want them too tight, my legs are not that big. So, I can’t be looking like a toothpick out there.

Katherine Jenkins & Donald Driver interview

Seacrest interviews Jenkins and Driver during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about being on Dancing With The Stars. Driver:

I think you get a little bit excited because your dancing between two people, but outside of that I think that’s it. Because you know you have to go out there and perform.

Jenkins:

My back was hurting me [last week]. I’ve never had a back spasm ever. So I didn’t actually know what happened…So it was really frightening because it’s not how we envisioned the end of the routine, and kind of disappointing when you’ve worked so hard, and it was working so well up until that point.

Jason Derulo interview

Seacrest interviews Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his single Undefeated. 

The fans got to help me write the song. I started writing the song, but I left a bunch of lines blank and the fans have been helping me fill in the lines. The song is now completed, so it’s a collaboration between Coca-Cola, American Idol, the fans, and myself.

Kris Allen interview

Seacrest interviews Allen during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his album Thank You Camellia. 

It’s actually a street that I stay on here in LA. My friends live there and they allow me to stay there. So, it kind of means a lot to me and I wanted to give a little bit of an homage to them.

Emily Maynard interview

Seacrest interviews Maynard during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Chris Harrison.

Chris would be a great ‘Bachelor.’ I think all the girls would be so lucky if Chris was ‘The Bachelor,’ but I don’t think he’s going to do it. I don’t think so, no. I don’t know, I’m the last person to ask, but I don’t think so.

Steven Tyler, Joe Perry interview

Seacrest interviews Tyler and Perry during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Phillip Phillips.

I’m so happy, because during this process I thought ‘Here’s a guy who didn’t care in the beginning,’ but it seemed like that to the America public. He was just really shy. But if you watch his behavior his soul was trying to climb out, and America got to see him do that. A lot of girls like boys that are vulnerable. They just fall in love with them, and the best news of all is the last song he played last night. Where did he get that from!? In that I hear a little Paul Simon, he’s just came out of the egg. He’s wet behind the ears, and yet he’s unfolded like that. I love when I see that. That America took a chance. It wasn’t the sure thing which we thought was Jessica. We all knew she was a sure thing, but they took a risk. Wow. That’s saying a lot.

Perry is asked if his band Aerosmith is making a comeback.

This is the first record in a long long time where I’ve actually found myself gravitating back towards listening to the roughs for the fun of it. That’s what is different about this record. For our fans you’ll be able to see a direct lineage to some of our old stuff. Like with this other song I wrote it for me to sing, and when we finally got it going my wife actually came up to me and said, ‘You really should let Steven have a shot at that, because he’ll do a better job.’ I have to stand back, as a co-producer of the record, and disassociate myself from the material. I thought, ‘She’s probably right’ and it wasn’t just her who said that. But you know when she said that I thought ‘You know, maybe I’ll sing the first verse or the second verse.’ Then he [Steven] laid one down and it was like ‘Yeah.

Randy Jackson interview

Seacrest interviews Jackson during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about American Idol’s season 11 winner.

I noticed during the middle of the season, no matter how harsh we judge Phillip, no matter what we say to him, no matter what Tommy Hilfiger would say to him, the drabbest color you can wear on stage is gray, he wore gray. The guy just was you couldn’t kill him, dude. He was that one, he was stealth, he stayed in there. We got it right. America always gets it right in the end. Listen all of those people will be fine. Jessica [Sanchez], Phillip, Joshua [Ledet], they’ll all have huge careers. I mean, they got giant careers ahead of them.

Jessica Sanchez interview

Seacrest interviews Sanchez during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and about growing up in the entertainment industry.

Literally, I do school here. I could be going to prom right now, but instead ya know I missed it. I got asked, but I was like I’m kind of busy.’ But has the busy 16 year-old made time to take her drivers test? I have to get it! I will make time. I’ll be writing a song while I learn how to drive.

Jennifer Lopez interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Lopez during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Phillip Philips winning season 11 of American Idol. 

As much as I love Jessica, and knew her voice is so outstanding I kind of felt like Phillip was going to win. I just felt like he connected with the audience in a way, like when he would come out, and the way they would scream, certain things, you just feel like that’s your ‘Idol.

Phillip Phillips interview

Seacrest interviews Phillips during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about winning the 11th season of American Idol. 

I couldn’t really talk! I think I was still crying. They were just saying ‘We love you, and we’re so proud of you.’ They said ‘We knew it would happen,’ but I didn’t. I never saw any of this ever happening. It’s just so surreal to me.

Mandy Moore interview

Seacrest interviews Moore during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks what she did with her TRON: Uprising action figures.

I brought them home for my husband and he has them displayed in his office. He will not take them out of the box, he like: ‘We’re going to save these for the kids one day.

28 May, 2012

Kimbra interview

Seacrest interviews Kimbra during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about being featured on the single Somebody that I Used to Know. 

It’s been an amazing experience to be a part of and it’s provided me with a great introduction for me to now share my record with the world.

Emily Maynard interview

Seacrest interviews Maynard during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her if she will ever be on The Bachelorette again.

I always say never say never about these types of things. For the most part I feel pretty confident saying that I wouldn’t do it, but again, I don’t know that I’m willing to open that up again for the world.

Demi Lovato interview

Seacrest interviews Lovato during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her Latin American tour.

Fans were singing along so loud I couldn’t even hear myself sing. It’s that kind of connection that keeps me going in this industry and what inspires me to get on stage every night.

Kristen Stewart interview

Seacrest interviews Stewart during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her role in the film Snow White and the Huntsman. 

I didn’t have too much training, other than the horse stuff. I kind of got ready to put myself through hell and it was all sort of just wrapping your head around really throwing yourself into something.

Dustin Penner interview

Seacrest interviews Penner during On Air With Ryan Seacrest asks what he will do with the Stanley Cup.

I’ve got some ideas. I want to spend some more personal time with it. The last time I took it back to my hometown in Canada. I kind of neglected it from a personal standpoint; I let everybody else see it. I’d really like to just spend some alone time with it. You know, I want to sit back and maybe watch a movie with it, make it feel special and not like you’re just prostituting it out to everyone else. I ended up running myself so ragged last time, I had to have my mom hook me up to an IV, she happens to be a nurse so…and so I had an IV in my arm for two and a half hours.

Phil Pritchard interview

Seacrest interviews Pritchard during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his job as Keeper of the Stanley Cup.

Our duties are hanging out with the Cup and looking after it from a public relations end, a transportation end, a security end.  I got married, I got 3 kids at home and we’re on the road a bunch so you miss them a ton, but getting to hang out with the Stanley Cup champions it’s pretty good for work. We only hang out with the winners, which is kind of neat.

Cat Deeley interview

Seacrest interviews Deeley during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about the next possible celebrity gust staring on her show The Choice. 

It’s too soon to tell, but there have definitely been some moments of chemistry look out Carmen Electra literally thunderbolt city.

Adam Sandler interview

Seacrest interviews Sandler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his film That’s My Boy. 

That’s My Boy,’ that came to our office, just a script that people in my office loved and bought. Andy Samberg called me up and kept telling me: ‘If you do that movie, I’d love to play your son.’ I kept going: ‘What movie is he talking about?’ Then finally, I read it and I loved. It’s a pretty crazy movie and it’s got some funny stuff that is very dirty and filthy, but pretty warm at times. I connected with it, and I was laughing at it, and that’s why I got excited to do it.

Julianne Hough interview

Interview

Seacrest interview during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her friendship with Mary J. Blige.

She’s amazing, literally she leaves me messages on my cell phone: ‘Hey, just thinking about you. Hope you’re doing well.’ You know, just checking in, she’s amazing. I literally thought that I was going to be super intimidated and nervous, but she’s a sweetheart, she’s amazing, and she just happens to be Mary J. frickin Blige.

Bethenny Frankel interview

Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her TV show Bethenny.

Men could learn a lot about women from the show. The show is what you talk to your girlfriends about when men aren’t around. It gets deep, and it gets light, and it’s really fun, and we’re not taking ourselves too seriously.

Ashley Tisdale interview

Seacrest interviews Tisdale during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her show Miss Advised. 

I’ve had my own company, Blondie Girl Productions for about 5 years. But this is our first show going on air, so it’s pretty exciting. “Miss Advised” is a dating advice show, but the experts giving the advice are all single, so what qualifies them to give advice? “One of them is a dating columnist, Julia Allison, one is a matchmaking maven, Amy Laurent, and the other one, Emily Morse is a radio host and sex expert. So they do all through different things. You start to see it unfold that they really aren’t taking their own advice. So, they’re dishing it out, but just not taking it. It’s a good time, it’s a fun show.

Kim Kardashian interview

Seacrest interviews Kardashian during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Air Yeezy 2 sneakers.

It is so crazy the amounts of people that are calling me, like so mad at me, or people coming out of the woodwork, like old security guards and just people like writing me out of the blue that I haven’t talked to in years, trying to befriend me to get a pair. My brother is so mad at me, I need to get him a pair.

Colton Dixon interview

Seacrest interviews Dixon during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about advise for American Idol auditioners.

Calm down, breathe, and be you. Nerves are going to run through you like crazy, but let that adrenaline push you even further than you would normally go, pour your heart out in the first audition and show them your personality.

Steve Carell interview

Seacrest interviews Carell during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. 

It’s a little weird shooting something like that because no matter what you’re doing in the movie as that character, there’s that looming thing hanging over you of like, ‘Wow, this could all be over.’ You know what though? When you think about it, it’s sort of just a metaphor for life. We’re all going through it and there’s an end date for all of us. It’s kind of how you choose to live your life, so there’s really sort of a joyousness to it, I think, as well.

Justin Bieber interview

Seacrest interviews Bieber during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his album Believe’s collaborations.

With Ludacris, he came in when we were working on it and he definitely loved it and he went back and started writing, and then got on it. With Drake, we wrote the song together and we were in the studio doing melodies and that’s how that happened. And Big Sean, we had already finished ‘As Long As You Love Me‘ and I was the one doing the rap at the end, but we just thought we might as well get Big Sean on it because he’s new and fresh.

Nicholas Sparks interview

Seacrest interviews Sparks during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about film Safe Haven’s cast. 

Josh [Duhamel] is not just handsome and charismatic, but decent and kind, exactly the kind of guy I imagined his character of Alex to be. Julianne [Hough]  is talented, beautiful, and unbelievably hardworking, but also has a measure of surprising vulnerability, critical to the role of Katie.

Janel Parrish interviews

Seacrest interviews Parrish during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her favorite TV show.

I think it would have to be ‘Revenge.’ I love the fact there is this girl who’ll do whatever it takes to get her revenge, and there are pretty boys on it, and she’s just so bad ass. So, I love it.

Nick Lachey interview

Seacrest interviews Lachey during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about a possible 98 Degrees Reuniting.

I think we’ve all been lucky in the 11 years since we last performed together to go on and do stuff individually. Drew was the winner of “Dancing with the Stars” season 2 and I’ve gone and done some solo stuff. But there really is nothing like coming together as a unit, as a group, as a band, on the stage, and I think we all miss that. We all miss the rush of being on stage together, performing together, and certainly the fans have kind of been clamoring for it, so it just felt right. We always said we were not broken up, we were just taking a break and now it just seemed like the right time to put everything back together.

Shawn Johnson interview

Seacrest interviews Johnson during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about what she will do now that she is retired.

Probably just relax? I think in the past week I’ve slept more than I ever have in my entire life. I think that’s a first. I’ve grown up working out seven hours a week, and not really had the freedom to have a social life and hang out with friend. Now I’ll actually be normal.
