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