Another misogynistic magazine cover for Jason Derulo–that being said, his interview is kiiiiinda fun to read.
The singer/dancer sat down with Billboard to talk about all kinds of things…INCLUDING his high-profile breakup with Jordin Sparks. Here’s a snippet:
On what he was like as a kid: â€œMy mom says I was an introvert,â€ says Derulo, gnashing gum. â€œI never saw myself that way, but I was always focused. I didnâ€™t spend a lot of time doing things that I didnâ€™t think would make me great. I studied all kinds of dance, all types of music. I got good grades. I started hitting the recording studio around 13.â€
On songwriting: â€œYou canâ€™t pull me out of the studio,â€ says Derulo. He estimates he and his collaborators wrote more than 100 tracks for the new album, many on a studio-outfitted bus in the wee aftershow hours on tour in 2014. â€œSongwriting is a muscle,â€ he says happily. â€œThe more you do it, the better you get at it.â€
What his love life looks like: â€œA deck of cards,â€ he says, slapping the table and laughing. But really, heâ€™s â€œhaving a good time getting to know people.â€ He thinks Tinder looks fun, but heâ€™s afraid a star like himself using it would be creepy: â€œItâ€™d be like, â€˜A million new requests today!â€™ Thatâ€™s just wrong.â€
On his breakup behavior: â€œI do get tired of playing nice,â€ he says. â€œEspecially when people think I did something wrong, or that she broke up with me. But itâ€™s so behind me.â€ Later, discussing his binge TV-watching habits, he admits Empire gets one thing in particular exactly right: celebrities dating as a publicity stunt. â€œThat happens all the time,â€ he says, without elaborating.
And a gimme- what FOOD does Derulo fantasize about the most? “Warm lava cake with vanilla ice cream,â€ says Jason Derulo. â€œThat shit is unbelievable.â€
Hit the gym or eat lava cake? DECISIONS DECISIONS, JASON.Â (I’d pick lava cake)
