Ryan Seacrest, arguably the busiest man in show business, found time to talk backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival about his crazy schedule, the return of American Idol and more.
“It’s the easiest job in the world, so I say ‘Yes’ to all of the offers,” Seacrest told Billboard on Saturday (Sept. 23).
The Idol host teased the show’s upcoming season, saying: “The show’s format, when it’s done right, it’s so strong, and what the country needs right now. I think it’s a good time for a big family show, but the surprises that are going to come, I’m guessing will be some judges announcements very soon.”
Seacrest also gushed about working with his friend and Live! co-host, Kelly Ripa. “I really get excited every day to see her,” he shared. “We’ve known each other for almost 20 years, and we talked about working together forever — we never thought it would be possible …
“I have to keep up with her. She’s so good and so fun and so smart.”
And, how does he wind down at the end of the day? With guided meditation — on an app, of course.
