Jason Derulo is looking mighty fit on the cover of Billboard‘s “Summer Shape Issue.”
Inside the issue, the Billboard Hot 100 heavyweight dishes on fitness, his new album Everything Is 4 (due in stores and online June 2) and his dating life following his very public breakup with American Idol winner Jordin Sparks.
Check out the Jordin Sparks-related tidbit from his cover story below.
Derulo has been single since he and American Idol champ Jordin Sparks split last fall after three years together. What does his love life look like now? “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.”
He was gentlemanly about the breakup, even though Sparks told radio hosts he had leased, not bought, the BMW he gave her as a gift. (He responded by Instagramming the bill of sale, but later deleted the post.) “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.
