"I never wanted to take my shirt off"

Ryan Seacrest confessed some crippling childhood insecurities to Jimmy Kimmel Thursday night.

“I used to hate spring break…because you would have to go to the pool or the beach and I never wanted to take my shirt off,” Seacrest said.

The American Idol host revealed that he was overweight as a child, and worked hard to get to where he is now and overcome his body issues.

“I definitely think that remembering how I felt back then drives me to stay fit as an adult,” he added. “I treat my workouts as one of the most important meetings of the day.”

Nick Jonas Says He’s Jealous of Jimmy Fallon’s Hit Song

The musician and the late night host talked about their most recent hit songs... and who's ahead of the game

Of all the competition out there, young actor and music sensation Nick Jonas’ greatest fear is late night host Jimmy Fallon…or so he joked, on Wednesday night, during an appearance on the Tonight Show.

That’s because Fallon’s parody song with will.i.am., Ew!, debuted the same week that Jonas’ recent hit, Jealous, did. For a period of time, Fallon’s Ew! was higher on the Billboard Top 100 than Jonas’ Jealous.

Jonas’ song has since pulled ahead, staying steady in the Top 10.
