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: Ã¢â¬ÅMy mom says I was an introvert,Ã¢â¬Â says Derulo, gnashing gum. Ã¢â¬ÅI never saw myself that way, but I was always focused. I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t spend a lot of time doing things that I didnÃ¢â¬â¢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.Ã¢â¬Â
On songwriting: Ã¢â¬ÅYou canÃ¢â¬â¢t pull me out of the studio,Ã¢â¬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. Ã¢â¬ÅSongwriting is a muscle,Ã¢â¬Â he says happily. Ã¢â¬ÅThe more you do it, the better you get at it.Ã¢â¬Â
What his love life looks like: Ã¢â¬ÅA deck of cards,Ã¢â¬Â he says, slapping the table and laughing. But really, heÃ¢â¬â¢s Ã¢â¬Åhaving a good time getting to know people.Ã¢â¬Â He thinks Tinder looks fun, but heÃ¢â¬â¢s afraid a star like himself using it would be creepy: Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢d be like, Ã¢â¬ËA million new requests today!Ã¢â¬â¢ ThatÃ¢â¬â¢s just wrong.Ã¢â¬Â
On his breakup behavior: Ã¢â¬ÅI do get tired of playing nice,Ã¢â¬Â he says. Ã¢â¬ÅEspecially when people think I did something wrong, or that she broke up with me. But itÃ¢â¬â¢s so behind me.Ã¢â¬Â Later, discussing his binge TV-watching habits, he admits Empire gets one thing in particular exactly right: celebrities dating as a publicity stunt. Ã¢â¬ÅThat happens all the time,Ã¢â¬Â he says, without elaborating.
And a gimme- what FOOD does Derulo fantasize about the most? “Warm lava cake with vanilla ice cream,Ã¢â¬Â says Jason Derulo. Ã¢â¬ÅThat shit is unbelievable.Ã¢â¬Â
Hit the gym or eat lava cake? DECISIONS DECISIONS, JASON.ÃÂ (I’d pick lava cake)
