Seacrest, Cowell Visit Africa

Seacrest, Cowell Visit Africa

Scope out these pictures of American Idol host Ryan Seacrest and judge Simon Cowell giving back and serving in Africa.

Says Simon, “Having witnessed some of the appalling conditions in Africa firsthand, I’m especially proud that our show is offering Americans the chance to help those most in need.” Ensuring that American charities will equally benefit from these efforts was one of my priorities, and I’d like to thank our sponsors for their support and generosity in making this possible.”

Added Ryan, “I thought I was prepared for what I would see in Africa, but the level of poverty was beyond anything I could have imagined. You see it, you smell it, you taste it. However, despite the extreme conditions, you feel an incredible sense of hope from the people … especially the children.”

Of all the pictures, this one of Ryan doing his GQ pose cracks me up the most!! He’s even wearing Justin Timberlake‘s label, William Rast!!

    Ryan Seekats is a HYPOCRIT.

    He acted so petty when he bashed Ange at the Golden Globe.

    Such a pathetic person.

    I have no respect for him

    May be Ryan now understands what Angelina is working on in Africa. Good for Angie, good for Ryan, good for American Idol. God bless those who help little children.

    Why do people keep talking about Angelina when speaking of Ryan, Like he tried to kill her or something. Poor guy, just because Angelina didn’t want to talk to him on the red carpet of the globes, he catches slack. lol

    A few stupid questions doesn’t make him pathetic. it makes him rich. since he gets paid a lot of money to ask those stupid questions. lol

    I hope Simon doesn’t bash those kids, even tho that sh*t would be hella funny.

    Wow that picture of Ryan, it looks like he has tears in his eyes, very touching.

    Where in Africa did they go? it’s a big place!

    See Brangelina can suck nuts, a lot of people go to Africa and support the beautiful people there.
    Yes there is poverty but you can still see how much integrity and humanity people have beyond the material goods.

    US is too materialistic.

    These celebrities with the exception of some are going to Africa to hold orphans like its the latest fashion trend.This idea came from the creators of A.I. Ryan seacrest is just there for the ride, they probably forced him to go. he never gave a **** before. anyways angelina fans don’t dislike him for what happened at the golden globes but for what he said about Angelina on his show.

    i actually love this idea from AI. i could care less about motives if money is being raised for a good cause.

    Where in Africa are they? We all should know by now that AFRICA IS A CONTINENT, NOT A COUNTRY. IN WHICH A LOT OF PEOPLE FROM DIFFERENT RACES LIVE.

    Charlize Theron- African?

    T Says:

    Who cares about the Brangelina incident already…some people behave like they actually know Angelina and Brad or cannot seem to comment on any of these blogs without mentioning them…check back into reality!!…and I hate the game of which celebrity is better than another when it comes to humanitarian work…there are a lot of people who do aid work (along with the thousands of nameless faces who actually do field work day in and day out…you think they are a little more deserving of credit than any of these celebs??)…think of Mia Farrow…she’s been adopting kids for decades now and visiting 3rd world countries or Audrey Hepburn…I say good for anyone who wants to lend a hand…AI can bring some necessary attention to the cause…and who is to judge who is authentic or not in their deed? I say good for Ryan and Simon…some much needed maturity on JJ…

    Some key information is missing here, such as just how were they “giving back” and “serving”? These two look like they have no idea what to do except sit around smiling for the camera. Why is Simon the only one drinking a soda? Were the kids offered a cold drink? Need a little more information before I can be convinced it is anything more than a photo op.

    Get off, Ryan. You should have checked in with Angelina about Africa instead of asking her what she made for breakfast. It was the perfect opportunity, if you were really interested.

    Someone really should have edited the pictures. Check out the kids on the right in the second picture.

    Does anybody wonders why EVERYBODY HATES AMERICANS? Is anyone scared? Do you spend your time on stupid blogs not caring about the USA being one of the most hated in the world? I love my country but sometimes it scares me: People are so UNEDUCATED and do care about nothing else but celebrities. So scary…we are going to pay for that one day as a nation :(

    it seems that only hypocrit smiles and photos matter to people than actual works. Instead of gazing at those hypocrits just think about how long have they been involved in humanitarians works, how much money and time they have given? seacrest and his likes have given anything so far!!!

    The Africa trip, and Africa American Idol show (with Bono, Stefani, and assorted others), was Simon Cowell’s idea, as someone said, ‘Lyin’ Peecrust’ was just along for the ride and because as host he introduces the shows and segments. This makes, even more baffling why he and his hench people from E! would snark on Angelina Jolie for no f**king reason.

    Having now been to Africa and seen what inspired Jolie’s work, you would have thought Peecrust would have a little more respect and graciousness towards her, instead he slams her and talks sh*t just because she wanted to take a backseat and let Brad have the floor – it was his night after all, as he was the one nominated.

    That co-talking head of Peecrusts, Debbie Matenopolous even said b*tchily of Angie, ‘guess she’d rather be in a 3rd world country,’ it was really nasty and contemptuous. Now all of a sudden her co-hort is in a 3rd world country feeling the pain. Shyeah, riiiiiiiiiiiight. That wussy is all about competition and biting off Jolie, his arch nemesis – suddenly acting like he gives a damn. My ass. He probably begged Simon to let him go – got him to bump Randy or some such sh*t. hahaha

    I couldn’t believe what I was hearing e those GG’s. He and E!, are the worst media wh*ring lame ass outfits in the business – they THINK the story is about them, forgetting they are no-talent hacks who are supposed to be covering the stars, not trying to be one. Instead, Peecrust gets offended because Angelina won’t eagerly engage him in conversation and smile like Bozo the f**kin’ clown.

    Peecrust is a simpering closeted *******, who’s cattyness towards Jolie was obvious, and spoke volumes: bottomline, he just wants to jump Pitt’s bones his damn self – and hates that Angie has him. Peecrust was as jealous and b*tchy as any Maniston fan in the ‘Brangelina’s’ presence. That’s all it was.

    Simon, however, YOU, are doing a great job, keep up the wonderful humanitarian work and cool ideas that will save lives ultimately…and most of all, keep b*tch slappin’ Peecrust and making him cry every week. He deserves it, and more.

    That is all.

    who knew angelina would become a saint on earth. i’m baffled. it could rain today, and somehow it will be because angelina wanted it to be wet on the ground. my word, she is not the first person to help people.

    it’s scary actually.

    if ryan was uninformed, and is not more informed who cares? because he didnt’ come back with a child, he couldn’t be moved? and even if he went there to do a photoshoot, it brings attention to the continent as a whole, so that is engouh.

    but maybe if angelina blesses him, he’ll be ok then.

    I don’t think that Ryan Seagay is sincere! I think he’ll only go because he’s the host of AI and want to show the world he is too doing goods. I don’t believe one bit. He sure looks like he’s posing for GQ alright on this trip!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
