We played a show in LA and Harry Styles just turned up and said he was a big fan and had been listening to our music like all the time and we expected him to have like body guards but he’s just a really cool down to earth guy.

Sarah Jessica Parker interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Parker during On Air With Ryan Sacrest and questions her about where she got her fashion sense.

I grew up with a mother who had great appreciation for beautiful things. We could afford almost nothing, but she was very industrious and clever. We were always like the poorest family in the nicest neighborhood and we would go to church tag sales and buy things for like a dollar, so we had really lovely things, but they didn’t come to us in the typical way.

Kristen Bell interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Bell during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her campain to ban paparazzi from taking photos of children.

It just occurred to me no one was working on the demand side. So I wanted to start a conversation with people, much like when we all found out there is pink slime in our meat, no one wanted to eat it. When you find something nasty goes into procuring something for you as a consumer, your feelings about it change. I think people who look at pictures of kids, like kids. I don’t think they realize it actually creates a really unhealthy and unsafe environment for the child.

Kerry Washington interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Washington during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her role on the TV show Scandal. 

It just keeps getting better and better. It’s kind of nuts. There are things that happen in the next couple of episodes that had the entire room at our table read crying. Things that had us applauding and screaming and laughing. I mean, we are shocked at every table read.

Jeff Probst interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Probst during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about hosting the 28th season of Survivor.

Survivor is still a social experiment, that’s the question. So we were in casting and we saw we had a group of people that were really smart so just an idea in the room was what if we just put them all together? And then it fell into place because we have two cops and a former NFL player and that became the Brawn tribe and then we always have a model and a cheerleader and that type, so it was brains, brawn, and beauty and the question was: Three different skills you rely on in life, is one more valuable in a social game like Survivor?

The Vamps interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews The Vamps during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions them about what Taylor Swift taught them about the entertainment business.

First of all she was really confident when she was speaking to the audience. Second, her stage bond was also amazing, I think we strive to be that together on stage and thirdly, her crew was so friendly and welcoming. So, Taylor taught us a lot.

We did a spoof called House of Nerds so I knew he’d seen that. But I didn’t know if he watched the show, so I was quite delighted to find he does indeed watch it, and apparently he’s jealous of how much [my character] Frank Underwood gets done!

Seth Meyers interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Meyers during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about why he’s not nervous to host Late Night With Seth Meyers. 

I’m used to doing [“Weekend Update” on SNL] live, but I’m not used to doing this much of it. [With] ‘Weekend Update,’ you’re live at a desk 15 minutes a week and now it’s the bigger thing cause you know it’s live-ish in front of real people, but I think SNL is as good of training as possible.

Shakira interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Shakira during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her which The Voice co-host gets on her nerves the most.

Adam [gets on my nerves the most] because he’s so competitive! And Usher is like Switzerland, he’s a little more neutral. And Blake can get on my nerves too, but he’s too funny.  But I think the chemistry is better than ever, it’s just great.

Miguel interview

 Every genre of music revolves around love even heavy metal so I kind of–(Well) I’m not the candlelight dude you know? What I mean is, I’m not the smoothest kind of guy. My lifestyle is not I’m such a smooth–I’m a musician, I’m an artist I make music I don’t pop bottles that’s not my thing. I want to highlight the album covers a range of my lifestyle.

Perrie Edwards interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Edwards during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her if she has gotten to know Demi Lovato while on her Neon Lights Tour.

We haven’t actually spent that much time with Demi at the minute but it’s because whenever we are getting ready, we have to go on and then when she’s getting ready, she goes on so we kind of miss each other a bit. But, hopefully, we’ll get together and we’ll hang out and she can give us advice and stuff because she’s been in the industry awhile now and she’s amazing.

Interview

Glanville:

People are so busy posting, tweeting, and Instagramming that there’s no more face time. And you can stalk anyone you want to find out what they’re doing and why they’re not texting you back.

Keith Urban interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Urban during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about season 13 of American Idol.

I like the fact we’ve got some really good young ones in here — extremely good singers. But it’s so much more than that [at this stage]. I was saying to Nic [wife Nicole Kidman] the other day when you get to the Top 30, they can all sing. They’re all great singers, so then for me, it’s the ones who make me feel something, that’s what it all comes down to.

My first words to them were like, ‘Are you being serous?’ I’m on this weird thing where I think I’m being punked all the time when something great happens so I didn’t know if it was a joke. And I thought maybe Kimmel was playing one of his like famous pranks and I didn’t buy it.

Seth Rogen interview

Interview

Me and my wife and some friends started a charity to benefit a fund we created with the Alzheimer’s Association and it was really to get young people off their butts and doing something that maybe contributed something to the world in some capacity instead of just playing video games all day. So we decided to try and come up with a program and what we just did was come up with a college program where people can hold their own charity events at their colleges through any group they want.

The first time I hosted Saturday Night Live, it was such a big deal for me, I think my immune system just like broke down, so I got the flu or something. So maybe it’s something that happens to me when I get nervous but I get through it because that adrenaline rush.

Johnny Quinn interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Quinn during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about getting locked in his hotel bathroom during the Sochi Winter Olympics. 

It was an unfortunate situation. I got stuck in there without a cellphone and without a towel, so after waiting around for an hour, it was time to get out of there.

At that point, when I saw the daylight from the other room, I said, ‘Hey, it’s time to get out of here.

Hayley Williams interview

Interview

I don’t know them I’m not really sure what they are. I was thinking I didn’t know what kind of Valentine’s Day this will be I was thinking I’m never home, so do I need to think about cooking up something? And he was like, ‘Stop it! This was my holiday to plan!’ So I didn’t plan anything.

Gabriella Wilde interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Wilde during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her desire to star in independent films.

My only experience with American things is through movies. I had to pick up the nuances from the other actors, so after two studio films I’d like to graduate from high-school parts, and maybe even try an independent film.

Mariah Carey interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Carey during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about the revealing dress she wore to the BET Honors. 

It was made to my body, they mold it to my body. It was difficult. It was not an easy feat to get that to stay up on the body. The first night we realized, ‘Um, I think we’re going to have to do something about this situation We rigged it with a little bit of invisible fishing wire.

Matt Lauer interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Lauer during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about taking over sportscasting the Winter Olympics for Bob Costas who caught a bad case of pink eye.

I went in yesterday and they put me in a completely different dressing room.

The chair I was sitting in was not his chair, but they still wiped it down. Then I walked into the studio and they told me, ‘Don’t worry. We’ve wiped the counters down. We’ve wiped the chair down.’

Michelle Obama interview

Interview

He [President Obama] celebrated me so well—he did a great job. I had a great couple of weeks, so I think we’re going to low-key it for Valentine’s Day. It feels like we just finished celebrating my birthday so I think we are going to low-key it.

Kid Ink interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Kid Inc during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his collaboration with Chris Brown on the single Show Me.

Really it was the blessing of social networking. It was me really me reaching out on direct messaging. I said I was finishing the album, ‘Do you want to come check anything out?’ And I had just moved at the time that was close to where he stays, so it wasn’t a struggle to be like, ‘Let’s go down the street to the studio and record and listen to some records. And he came through. I played him about three different records, ‘Show Me’ being the first one, and I knew that was a record that was really special to me at the time, but it was still missing a little something. [He] went in the booth and gave it all the energy it needed at that time and it was like, ‘Yeah, that’s the one. We got it!’ But I didn’t tell him that’s the one,” he laughs, “so we could keep going and we did about three records that night.

Queen Latifah interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Queen Latifah during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about how she felt marring 33 cuples at the same time during Grammy Awards show.

I was very emotional because outside of all of the hype of everything – it being the Grammys, it being a world stage, all of the musical performances, the fact that it’s Mackelmore, Ryan Lewis, and Madonna and Mary Lambert – there’s 33 couples out there who are taking the biggest step of their lives probably. Who are actually making a commitment and it’s scary! It’s exciting! It’s wonderful! So I really tried to just focus on them and the love they have for each other to actually make that commitment.

Jennifer Lopez interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Lopez during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her what she hopes her boyfriends Valentines Day plans are.

I just like something that has some thought put into it. I don’t need like big gifts. I want to feel like you put some time into it and you really thought about it I always say it takes more time to go out and pick a card than it does to buy a quick present.

Demi Lovato interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Lovato during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about how she feels close to home while on tour.

Shakira interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Shakira during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her if her boyfriend agreed with the sexy theme of her video with Rihanna, Can’t Remember to Forget You.

Miley Cyrus interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Cyrus during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about her Bangerz Tour. 

They’re [my fans] going to be exposed to art most people don’t know about. People are taught to look at things so black and white, especially in small towns.

Sofia Vergara interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Vergara during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her about how the tabloids interest in her love life effects her.

I laugh all the time because what else can I do? I mean at least they’re talking about me, no? I read the most absurd things, like one day I’m engaged, one day because I go to the gym without the ring then I’m not engaged and it’s some horrible tragedy. Then the other day I’m getting married, then I’m giving birth.

Steve Harvey interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Harvey during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his 90 day relationship probation rule.

Here’s the deal. I created this equation to benefit the woman because how many times has a woman given herself to a man and then later on said, ‘Wow! If only I knew what I know now, I wouldn’t have given myself to [that person].’ So I said here’s a 90-day rule for you and I came up with the equation after my days working at Ford. You have a probation period of 90 days before that company gives you a full benefit package. Women should look at their benefit the same way because they have the greatest benefit package available to man so why would you pass out the greatest benefit package and he isn’t qualified for it? So you need a 90-day probation period [to get to know them] and that’s how long I think women should wait.

Dr. Oz interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Dr. OZ during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about advise for those who catch the flu.

It’s not affecting as many people, but the people it affects are getting a lot sicker, especially young people. It’s related to the Spanish influenza, which happened in 1918 and killed 20 million people around the globe. It was a bad strain, so a lot of young people are ending up in the hospital with this year’s version of the flu which is a-typical it lingers and it makes you feel real poorly.

Tour Announcement

Announces Tour

OneRepublic announces their 42 city north American  Native Summer Tour with dates from May 28 through Aug. 28.

I was a history buff when I was a kid, so it’s kind of a dream job because I get to see all the places that I read about growing up. I mean, we are going to take in as much as we can on the days off eat at all the coolest and best places. We’re kind of like the musical version of Anthony Bourdain when we are on the road.

Demi Lovato interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Lovato during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions her for details about her Neon Lights Tour. 

I want my fans to experience a show that really showcases off all of the instruments that I can play. It’s kind of like what Beyoncé did with the music video for each song, but it’ll be playing on the background of the scenes during my show.

A Great Big World interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews A Great Big World during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions them about the story behind their single Say Something. 

I feel like Ian was invested more when we started writing it. Ian was definitely heartbroken the whole way through [writing it]. I didn’t realize I was heartbroken until we started writing the song, like halfway through. There was this girl in my life and it went on for three years and it was un-reciprocated. I thought it was something else and I was younger and I felt something and it was painful but it made me feel alive and I think a lot of it was, I was afraid to let it go I think about it now and I get the chills because it’s so crazy that’s the one that’s connecting to everybody and we felt so alone and now it’s like a healing song and people are listening to it and it’s helping them.

Zac Efron interview

Interview

Seacrest interviews Efron during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his film That Awkward Moment.

It’s from a guys point of view that you’ve never really got to see before. And we kind of reveal what’s going on in our heads and it’s hilarious. It’s brutally honest and I think it’s really funny.
