Ryan Seacrest opens up about having attention deficit disorder (ADD).
Between hosting “American Idol” and “Live with Kelly and Ryan,” along with his weekday morning radio show, someone told Ryan Seacrest that he should try to meditate, but there was a problem with the advice.
“It was a suggestion for me I have to meditate, but I’m easily distracted,” Seacrest told the New York Times in a new interview published Tuesday.
“I have attention deficit disorder,” says Seacrest, adding that “in the last few years, [he] is a great supporter of the introduction to [his] phone down.
“I will lock in a safe if I am on a journey,” says the 43-year-old. “I just don’t have my device on me to be a very good thing and the world is alive.”
However, when Seacrest works, he ensures that he is always on top of all his e-mails.
“If you want to be the most successful you, people want to hear” yes,” he explained.
“They want to hear three words, one is ‘yes’, and the other is ‘I am.’ You can tell that someone ‘got it!’ and mostly life is good,” shared Seacrest. “That is my favorite response to an e-mail,” I Got it.'”
According to Entertainment Tonight, this is one of the first times Seacrest has “spoken publicly about having ADD.”
Previously, he was seemed to refer to it in 2015 when he interviewed Kanye West during the grammy’s, reports the wall outlet.
“Attention deficit disorder is a good thing,” said Seacrest. Replied West: “It is also just thinking.”
