On Air interview


Seacrest interviews Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his album Want To Want Me. 

I was coming off of a crazy experience. That was a point where I broke my neck and I had to cancel my whole tour. I was making music just for myself. It wasn’t planned for an album or anything because I was supposed to be on tour…So I was just in the studio doing me and that’s what came out. The album just had a bunch of songs that made you feel good because I needed to get myself out of the rut that I was in. So I was making music that made me feel good.

Jason Derulo interview


Seacrest interviews Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his album Talk Dirty.

This album has a lot of dimensions. The Other Side and Marry Me was one side. But when I was making this album, I wasn’t thinking about making hit songs it was just about getting myself out of the darkness. It came from an honest place. I feel like it’s me.

Jason Derulo interview


Seacrest interviews  Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and questions him about his single Marry Me. 

When I was writing the song, I actually wrote it to the piano, and I was writing the song with just playing it to Jordin in mind. I was just going to play it for her in the car and never did I intend for it to be a hit on the radio or anything like that.

Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo interview


Williams interviews Sparks and boy friend Jason Derulo for the first time ever as a couple.

 No. It was not exactly love at first sight. We were actually, we were both called to do a show in the Bahamas last year and it was awesome cause we had meet each other before. But there was nothing, like we just saw each other in passing. And then he [Jason] invited me to the after party afterwards.

Jason Derulo interview

Seacrest interviews Derulo during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about his single Undefeated. 

The fans got to help me write the song. I started writing the song, but I left a bunch of lines blank and the fans have been helping me fill in the lines. The song is now completed, so it’s a collaboration between Coca-Cola, American Idol, the fans, and myself.

Derulo is released from the hospital and ordered to wear a neck brace for several months. He is forced to cancel all of his upcoming shows and promotional appearances.

To all my fans who planned to come to the Future History World tour, the pain of letting you down cuts me way deeper than this injury I’ve sustained. My fans mean everything to me, so I’m praying for a speedy recovery in order to perform for you in the near future.

Sparks was there every step of the way. Sparks was very instrumental in my recovery. The simplest things that we take for granted, like tying my shoes or putting on a shirt, she was right there for me, he said. That situation brought us very close because I think it takes a very special person to drop everything they’ve got going on in their life, especially someone of her caliber, to come and aide me. That was really special.
