We’ve got to stop using that word. That is not a twerking video. That is a whining video. I’m from Trinidad, we whine. We don’t twerk in Trinidad you’re whining your hips.

I’m doing good, much better, happy to be on the phone with you guys. So basically I had gotten sick while I was on the road.

Seacrest interviews Diaz during On Air Wit Ryan Seacrest and questions her about working with Taylor Kinney on the film The Other Woman.
He’s so great. He is, first off, easy on the eyes. And then he’s just about the kindest, sweetest guy ever. I met his mother the other night and I told her how impressed we were by her son and how great of a job she did. He was always the one who would get up for all the girls [and ask] ‘Can I get you anything?’ and he always came back with waters for everybody. He’s such a gentleman.

Seacrest interviews Harris during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about how he feels writing songs for other artist.
I had two albums out before this last one I used to sing every single song and it wasn’t until maybe three, four years ago where I wanted to write songs for other people, like I wrote the Rihanna We Found Love song. And since then, I realized maybe I can use other people’s voices who are much better singers than me. And if I have a song that I think suits my voice or I don’t see anyone else singing it, I’ll just do it myself. I think the majority of people still don’t know it’s me who sings, which is completely fine. I’m good just being the producer guy.

I’m psyched to be a part of it. And I’m psyched to experience it myself. It [Coachella] was great. It was amazing. I played Coachella two years ago and I played really early on that strong and I really loved the vibe, but you know it was really bright outside and it was super hot.
Seacrest interviews McHale during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about playing Ryan Seacrest on Community.
I did get to play you two weeks ago on Community. I did not write that, but believe me I wish that I had. I turned into a Seacrest Hulk. I became the best looking person in the world in my mind, and there was a reaction to drugs and spray tan. I was at a bar mitzvah impersonating you with a bunch of celebrity impersonators, and I was doing you and then it was like a fake Oscars at a bar mitz and I did not win “Most Handsome” and so I went crazy and started beating up 13 year-old-boys. It’s ripped from the headlines.
Seacrest interviews Couric during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her book The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives.
About 116 people contributed to this book. This should be heartening for a lot of people, because I think one of the most prevalent things is how many of these people have failed. So much of success is about being able to pick yourself up and be resilient.
Seacrest interviews Spelling during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her children.
My two oldest [children] are 15 months apart, and that was great. That was unexpected too, because I got pregnant when Liam was six months [old] but it ended up being amazing because it becomes an instant play date when they get older. So it’s great.
Seacrest interviews DeGraw during On Air With Ryan Seacret about Dancing With The Stars contestant Donald Driver.

Seacrest interviews Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his album Talk Dirty.
This album has a lot of dimensions. The Other Side and Marry Me was one side. But when I was making this album, I wasn’t thinking about making hit songs it was just about getting myself out of the darkness. It came from an honest place. I feel like it’s me.
Seacrest interviews Jenner during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Kim and Kanye.
First of all, he’s [Kanye] been a friend of the family for so long, and the two of them are, you know, they do their own thing, they have their own friendship and relationship. So I love them both, and I just stop trying to make judgments on who they go out with, or my comments or advice that I love to give and pass out unsolicited, because I always get myself into trouble with the dating thing. So but when I heard it I thought ‘Okay. Oh wait, what’s going on? What? What?’ Sometimes I’m just like everybody else. Sometimes I’m the last to know.
Seacrest interviews Cowell during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about Britney Spears possibly being a judge on American Idol.
If it was my decision, 100% if we could get her. We’ll have to find out very soon if we’ve spoken to her. Don’t forget there are a lot of names that have been bandied around, some true, some false. But we’ve said to everyone we’ve spoken to, we’ve got to keep quiet about it. You got to wait until people sign up, but we’re very, very close.
Seacrest interviews Sheeran during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his inspiration for the single Sing.
I feel like I was veering off in one direction with that song to kind of make it a very R&B song. I wanted to pull it back and make it English, which is why I put the rap in it. [Sing is about] Someone I met in Vegas. It was last summer. We went out for food afterwards sushi.
Seacrest interviews O’Brien during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about the possibility of him replacing David Letterman on The Late Show.
I think people are thinking about it the wrong way. Right now, we have a glut of people more or less my age or a few years younger than me hosting shows. I think if CBS was smart, they’d counter-program. They would go with really, really old or really, really young. So I’m suggesting either Larry King or Beyonce‘s baby, Blue Ivy so I think they’re barking up the wrong tree with me or anyone like me.

Actually we don’t hit our stride until the third week but the third week on tour, I’m 15 again. Now, I’m 12.
No matter what you do beforehand, there’s nothing like going onstage. You always feel like you’ve been run over by a truck the next day, no matter what. I’ve tried it both ways: I’ll get in shape on tour or I’ll work out for a month [before]. I’ll tell you, it’s very athletic.
Seacrest interviews Tedder during On Air With Ryan Seacrest. Seacrest questions Tedder about how he decides which songs to save for his band and which songs to give to other artist.
I’ve never really had too much of an issue doing it because when I switch into writing for OneRepublic, it’s a bit Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I literally go to a different part of my brain. When I’m writing for OneRepublic, it’s 100% personal and it’s me writing for us and when I’m writing for someone else, it almost feels like a game.
Seacrest interviews Legend during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his single All Of Me.
I wrote it a couple years ago and then when I came home I said, ‘I wrote a really good song baby I think you’re going to love it.’ And I sang it to her and she started crying, so I knew it would be a special song and then I sang it at our wedding and a lot of people have been using it at their weddings.

Seacrest interviews Bateman during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about role in the film Bad Words.
I’m embarrassed to say I have a similar dark sense of humor, but I also have a very soft chewy center that this nasty guy I play has. It just kind of worked for me, you kind of have to show this guy is sensitive, but show his prickly veneer.
Seacrest interviews Lincoln during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his role in the show The Walking Dead.
I’m a bit of a weirdo I headed out three weeks before we started the first-ever episode. I went out and sort of went under cover and tried to orders coffees in a dialect. Then it became about fried chicken and got more confident and after about two-and-a-half weeks, I had a passable accent and it’s kind of stuck really.

Seacrest interviews White during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her role in the TV show Hot In Cleveland.

I’ve always been very curious about things and the nature of the universe. It’s designed for people who have absolutely no prior interest in science. It’s designed to be entertaining first and foremost [and] to be accessible and mind blowing to those who may not have had any prior interest in science at all.
Seacrest interviews A Great Big World during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks them what their follow up release to the single Say Something is going to be.

Seacrest interviews Handler during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about why she dislikes Piers Morgan as an interviewer.
Well, he is a really bad interviewer. I mean, he doesn’t listen. He checks his Twitter handle the entire time you’re talking to him, so yeah, I was being serious I tell him that all the time. I mean, he texted me to come on the show and I was like, ‘Why? You’re such a bad interviewer.’ And then I said, ‘Sure I’ll do it.’ I mean he’s fine, whatever, I don’t dislike him. I just think he should probably do something else now.

It’s a TV show.
Seacrest interviews Woodley during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her role in the film Divergent.
It’s complicated. There’s the idea it’s about a girl who switches factions and has to make a choice for herself and then deal with the consequences of her choices. But it also deals with warfare and it deals with one society taking over another society there are so many different themes and story-lines interwoven.
Seacrest interviews Mali Music during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his work with Jennifer Lopez.

I was talking to the Queen guys about this today when I first met them and the first couple times we took the stage together, it was good, it felt good, but just last year at the iHeartRadio Festival it just felt more grounded and evolved and we talked about a lot of reasons, but I feel more grounded.
