While Jason Derulo was out on his infamous breakup tour, Jordin Sparks opted not to say much about what led to their very public split. This of course, is why many were shocked when the former “American Idol” contestant released a diss track about the “Marry Me” singer.
On the song, which was released last month and titled, “How About Now,” Jordin aired out her feelings about their relationship and breakup.
“Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can’t believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I’m with you for your fame and your name. What?”
During a recent chat with E! Online, the 24-year-old beauty spoke on why she released the song even though she knew it would be controversial.
“I knew it was going to get crazy,” she shared. “I was nervous to put it out there because no one had ever heard me like this before.”
“Every day was different and every day something new came out [during writing and recording sessions], and that day I was having one of those days where I was like, ‘I’m just going to do it and I want my fans to hear this side of me. They need to hear it.’…
My fans wanted to hear something but at the same time it wasn’t really planned and I just went into the studio and whatever came out, came out.”
Jordin also says that she has not heard from Jason since releasing the song. In addition to being featured on her mixtape, #ByeFelicia, the track will also appear on her new album, Right Here, Right Now.
“Once You Blew Up, Head Got Big” Jordin Sparks Goes In On Ex Jason Derulo In New Song “How Bout Now”
When news of Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo’s breakup first hit the internet. It was clear who was taking the high road and who was trying to use the ending of their relationship as a marketing tool. In case you’re not sure which was which Jason was out here doing more press than ever before talking about what led to their demise.
Jordin basically said she wasn’t going to go too deep into it. And up until the release of her mixtape, “#Bye Felicia” that was true.
But now she has a new song called “How Bout Now” and in it she says all the things she’s been keeping inside for the past couple of months.
Check out a couple of the lyrics and listen to the whole song, which sounds like it would fit perfectly on an old school Aaliyah album, in the video below.
First she explains how he showed himself to be ungrateful.
“Member I deleted all my other guys numbers on my phone for you.
Remember when you broke your neck and I had to wash your back for you.
You probably don’t remember half the shit that I did for you.”
And then the reason their love didn’t last.
Once you blew up, head got big and you started changing.
Can’t believe all the things that you started saying.
Like I’m with you for your fame and your name. What?”
Well, there you have it.
But the biggest insult in all of the lyrics? “Cuz I’m up right now and you suck right now.”
Breaking up is certainly hard to do, especially when it’s done via phone call or text. Check out 10 former celebrity couples whose relationships came to an end over the phone.
Joe Jonas and Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift never forgets a breakup and she doesn’t want you to either! Remember back when she admitted to Ellen DeGeneres that her relationship with Joe Jonas ended in a 27-second phone call? Jonas was the one who called to do the dumping. Yikes!
So many celebrity couples called it quits this year let alone within the last couple of months. We recently compiled a list of celebrities — like Ciara and Future — who called off their engagements. But since this slideshow’s publication, there have been not only more engagement call offs, but celebrity breakups and divorces. Here’s another list of celebrities who gave up on their marriages, engagements and relationships. What’s really going on, Hollywood?!
“He Lied To Me The Entire Time” Model Carmen Ortega Says Jason Derulo Was Cheating On Jordin With Her
Jason Derulo swears that he didn’t cheat on Jordin Sparks. But model, Carmen Ortega, has a different story.
Ortega told STAR Magazine that she had a one-month fling with Derulo while he was still dating Sparks.
Ortega said she met Derulo last summer through mutual friends at a recording studio. She claims shortly after meeting, the two quickly began an intimate relationship.
“We dated for a month. We went out in public with friends a few times, so I assumed he didn’t have a girlfriend.”
Ortega said that when she finally realized that Derulo, at least publicly, was still very much involved with Jordin, she called things off.
“I cut ties with him immediately. He tried telling me their relationship was strictly fueled by management teams. He lied to me the entire time.”
The story is a little different than the one she told last summer when the two were first photographed together, on two separate occasions going into IHop at 3 am in the morning.
I kept going back and forth asking him ‘Are you with Jordin or are you not with Jordin?’ One day he’s like “we’re back together” the next he’d say “we’re not together.” He acted like they were on and off. With Jason I asked him about an interview where he said he and Jordin were discussing marriage and he told me, ‘It’s not even like that, we’re not that serious. I was like ‘You’re going on interviews and saying certain things’ and he was saying, ‘It’s all fake it’s just press.’
She seems like a good person and a good girl and that’s why I want nothing to do with that situation anymore because I look at it like what a piece of isht of a guy to be doing that to her for so long. She is really in love with him – I feel bad about it.
If I was in a room with Jordin, I would tell her straight up your man is not a good man for you. You are too good for him. I just feel like she’s being played really bad. Men in Hollywood, he’s not the only one, there’s a lot of them.
For someone who claimed not to be dating him, she seemed really in her feelings about a co-worker, even back then. So it makes sense that now, the full story is coming out.
Who knows who to believe with these type of shenanigans. But Jason Derulo seems like the least trustworthy person in this story.
On the total opposite spectrum of the current Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa saga, are Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks who are no longer item. Derulo, who was recently on Power 105’s Breakfast Club and Sparks, who was recently on the Wendy Williams show, have given very light details on what led to the demise of the relationship. There were reports that Derulo said the pressure for marriage was a factor in their breakup, despite him stating on numerous occasions that Sparks was “the one” and writing a song about the “American Idol” titled “Marry You.” Some women feel as if Derulo made a mistake in making his feelings about marrying Sparks public, while others feel there must’ve been some infidelity on Derulo’s part that negatively affected the relationship. Personally, I don’t think either was the case, but I’d like to address those assessments while offering my own opinion of what happened based on the limited amount of information I’ve gotten from both during their public statements.
Derulo, at some point during the relationship, thought Jordin Sparks was the woman he was going to marry. And said so. Publicly. There are some who are of the opinion that he likely should’ve kept that tidbit of information to himself unless he was absolutely sure he was going to pop the question. During his Breakfast Club interview, Derulo explained the song, stating he felt that way about her, but wrote the song as a sign of his commitment to the relationship and his hope that his future with Sparks would lead them to that point. That’s not necessarily the wrong thing to do, though Sparks said during her Wendy Williams interview that whatever pressure he might’ve felt, was probably self-inflicted. To a degree, Sparks is probably right. Derulo did mention there was pressure from family members with regards to him marrying Sparks and while I have no way of knowing that pressure was there prior to him making the song, public proclamations to do anything aren’t a good idea unless you’re 100% sure you’re going to do it.
I’m not an expert by any stretch of the imagination, and pop-culture is number 1000 on my list of “100 things I’m good at,” but after watching Sparks’ and Derulo’s interviews, I’m not sure why this is such an issue. Sparks is 24 and Derulo is 25. They’ve been together for three years. And then they called it quits. To quote Cam’ron from the classic movie Paid In Full, “(relationships die) everyday, b.” While it seems folks are searching for any reason to drag Derulo’s name through the mud (he was the one who initiated the break-up), he seemed to be very respectable in his handling of the questions during his interview. He claimed that he still loved her, didn’t rule out the chance they’d possibly reconcile, said he still stalks her Instagram photos and said he’d be hurt if she started dating someone else. I’m assuming in 2014, online stalking qualifies as a form of romance. In any event, it seems like two young people were involved in a serious relationship and quite possibly got in over their heads with one person opting to leave instead of stay beyond the point of no return. Seems like a smart decision to me.
At the end of the day, Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo broke up and nobody knows why, but them. Yeah, it probably wasn’t the smartest idea on the planet for Jason to make public proclamations of his desire to marry Jordin but it doesn’t seem like that’s what broke the relationship up. With that said, I could definitely see how making that thought public could add an unnecessary pressure to a relationship with two people like Sparks and Derulo, who are already suffering the pressure of being celebrities in the celebrity-crazed era we live in now, especially at 24 and 25.
Jason Derulo Explains Why He Wrote “Marry Me” And Had Jordin Sparks In The Video If He Wasn’t Ready For Marriage
If you didn’t get the memo, Jason Derulo is on his 2014 breakup tour, and is speaking to whomever will interview him about why things didn’t work out with Jordin Sparks. Despite all the theories, including that he let his new much bigger dose of fame get in between his relationship because he wanted to be “outchea,” and that he led Sparks on about marriage, he says that’s not true. Derulo claims that they argued about a lot of things, including marriage. The 25-year-old and Sparks, who is 24, couldn’t see eye-to-eye on that. So the big question has been, why write a song called “Marry Me” and put Sparks in the video?
That’s what Peter Rosenberg and Laura Stylez asked him when he visited Hot 97 yesterday. This was his explanation:
“I wrote the song because of the pressure. I wanted to say that we’ve got time. You know what I’m saying? There’s NO rush. When the time is right, I will say, ‘will you marry me?’ When the time is right.”
Derulo also spoke more about why things didn’t work:
“It was a situation where there was a lot of arguing going on. Different pressures of marriage, not just from her perspective, but from the world in general.”
If he thinks they will reconcile:
“It’s not too far gone, I wouldn’t say that.”
And whether or not he thinks she hates his guts right now:
“I don’t know, I haven’t talked to her in a little minute. Like two weeks. The last conversation was dinner. We was sitting in Katana. We had a argument about a specific something that I don’t want to mention. That argument just kind of did it for me. After that point, I didn’t really want to talk to her at all. After that specific argument–it wasn’t like it was all because of that, but it was the last straw. Something can get so unhealthy that at some point you have to walk away. If you’re arguing all the time and it’s more bad than good, you just gotta make that decision. ‘What are we doing here?’
He also addressed whether or not he was talking so much about their split for attention knowing that he and Jordin will probably get back together sooner than later. Here’s what he had to say.
“I wish that was what it really was. I don’t need that kind of stuff. I always keep it about the music and the music has always done its thing. I’ve never been that kind of person to just muster up something so that people could buy my music.”
As for Sparks, she spoke to Wendy Williams this morning about the split. Well, kind of. When asked how she is doing, she said she’s doing great. And she looked great by the way:
“I’m good. Really, I’m good. I know you don’t think I’m good, but I’m good.”
After Wendy told her that she’s way too young for marriage anyway, she was asked if she and the public put pressure on Jordin about marriage after the “Marry Me” video:
“We set ourselves up for that.”
And she was asked whether or not infidelity played a part in the end of their relationship. She didn’t say yes, but Sparks didn’t say no either…
“I actually don’t want to comment on that.”
I would like to see these two work things out because they were adorable together, but all this talking? It’s probably not going to make coming back together very easy…
Check out Derulo’s interview with Hot 97 below:
I’m not going to hold y’all long but can I just say that Jason Derulo is something else. His recent split with Jordin Sparks just makes me fully understand why so many celebrities are so guarded with their relationships…and rightly so. In fact, it’s a lesson that us regular folks might need as well: chill on broadcasting our relationships on social media. But y’all already read the story about that study. You know what it is.
My issue with Jason Derulo is the fact that he seems like the type of dude to use every thing, every little thing for the benefit of his career and public image.
After elevatorgate/Cartergate, I’m admittedly more skeptical of celebrity relationships. I don’t know what’s real. But perhaps you’ve observed that a celebrity’s stock goes up significantly when that person is in a relationship with another celebrity. It was the case with Bey and Jay, Will and Jada, Amber and Wiz, Future and Ciara and even Big Sean and Naya Rivera. We start talking about these people more when we know they’re dating, engaged or married. The lines between personal and professional are so blurred these days, a relationship, whether thriving or sinking, makes us more invested. And as reporters and bloggers are digging into their business, celebrities also have an opportunity to promote their latest creative endeavor. It’s a win win and everybody’s happy.
Don’t believe for one minute that Jason Derulo doesn’t know that. In fact, he may have known it for a long time. It’s the reason why Jason and Jordin showed up on red carpets, all hugged up together, in matching outfits.
It’s the reason why Jordin Sparks starred in Derulo’s “Marry Me” video.
And it’s the reason Derulo had to speak about the reason they broke, even after he said he wouldn’t.
In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, the host of “American Idol,” the show that “discovered” Jordin Sparks, Derulo said that the relationship became like an obligation and Jordin was pressuring him to get married.
Umm… I’m sure she did Jason. You put her in a video in a song called “Marry Me”! If it were me, I would have been asking for my ring as soon as the shoot wrapped.
And that song was released a whole year ago.
So yeah, I’m sure there was pressure.
I wasn’t going to say anything about Jason and Jordin because it is what it is. But then I saw this article asking whether or not women put too much emphasis on getting married with a picture of Jason and Jordin as the featured image. Of course we do. And society puts that pressure on us too. But there’s something to be said about a proposal for entrainment’s sake that isn’t followed up by a real one. I mean, if he wanted to write the song, why couldn’t he find a random model to be the video girl?
I have an entirely different theory about why these two broke up and it has more to do with the fact that Jason’s career is poppin’ these days and he might be wondering if now, with his newfound fame, is the time to settle down.
And in his defense, it probably isn’t.
Listen, I don’t know what went down in their relationship but I doubt that Jordin’s desire to get married was the only issue. And I think it’s a little foul for him to be speaking about their breakup in such depth and from such a one-sided angle.
But that’s just me.
Jason Derulo Blames Marriage Pressures For Jordin Sparks Split, Says Relationship Became An ‘Obligation’
Although he previously stated that he did not intend to speak on the details regarding his split from Jordin Sparks, Jason Derulo must have experienced a change of heart. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, the “Wiggle” singer credited marriage pressures for the breaking down of their relationship.
“I’m not one to throw my business out on the street, but I thought it was important because things are getting a little out of hand,” he said. “I’m seeing all kind of stories about somebody getting pregnant, infidelity, things like me calling it off because of me being too busy and because of my newfound success.”
And then, he went in for the kill.
“What happened … in a nutshell, there was a lot of tension in the relationship for a lot of different reasons. Every relationship has ups and downs. There was a lot of pressures of marriage. There was a lot of arguing and stuff like that that just weighed on our relationship over time. When you stop having more good times than bad bad times, it’s time to call it quits. It becomes something that is unhealthy,” he explained.
Many expected Jason to propose to Jordin after he expressed a desire to do so, released a song titled, “Marry Me,” and featured Jordin in the song’s music video.
During his chat with Ryan, Jason also expressed that he and Jordin aren’t exactly on good terms right now.
“I wouldn’t say good terms,” he said. “”I’ll be lying if I said that, but it’s not a bad situation. There’s no bad blood. We didn’t end off on a weird way or a negative way. It’s not like we’re hitting each other up, like, ‘Hey, what are you doing today?'”
“Three years … very long time. I think sometimes you can be in a relationship so long, it becomes a part of your life and you feel like you’re obligated. And when you start feeling obligated and you start feeling like it’s something you have to do because it’s necessary, like breathing, that’s not a good situation either. It should be something different.”
Jordin also recently spoke out about the split and while she’s not blabbing like her ex-boyfriend, she did have this to say:
“I’m good, actually,” Jordin said during an appearance on “Today.” “The funny is that I read this book the other day. Actually, it was yesterday. It said when something unexpected happens in your life or you think something bad is happening, just say ‘plot twist’ and move on.”
Watch Jordin’s interview below.
Last week, reports of a split between Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo began circulating. Sadly, it turns out that the rumors are true. The “Talk Dirty” singer recently confirmed the breakup to Us Weekly.
“I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met,” he expressed. “But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part.”
Of course, it’s rare that a celebrity splits without rumors of infidelity rumors floating around. Jason also responded to those rumors saying:
“Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our breakup, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives,” he added. “Though I think it is a private matter and intended to keep my breakup with Jordin personal, due to bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets it became necessary for me to comment.”
As previously reported, sources close to the situation say that the former couple plan to remain friends. While we’re sad to see them split, it’s nice to see that they’re keeping things positive and just maybe they can rekindle their romance in the future.
