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…

Why I’m Calling B.S. On Jason Derulo And His Wack Breakup Explanation

September 30th, 2014 - By Veronica Wells

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.”

Jason Derulo Confirms Split From Jordin Sparks, Denies Cheating

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.


Jordin Sparks And Jason Derulo Call It Quits After More Than 3 Years

These surprising splits just keep coming from left and right, and the fact that the news is about some of our favorite couples is pretty sad.

According to E! News and People, Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks have decided to go their separate ways after three years. The couple always looked head-over-heels in love. And there was talk of a possible engagement on the way since 2012 when he told E! News that she was “definitely” the one.

And the talk definitely heated up after Derulo released a song called “Marry Me” for Sparks, and she starred in the video with him.

And don’t even get me started on how romantic it was when he filled her hotel room with 10,000 orange roses for Valentine’s Day.

Earlier this year, Sparks told Life & Style that Derulo was the one, and that while she wasn’t rushing him, she had a feeling that he would propose sooner than later:

“We have forever. I’m already there — I know he’s the one. He might be already planning, I never know. He surprised me with those roses, so I don’t know what’s up his sleeve. We’ll see!”

No comment from either Derulo or Sparks as of yet, but Sparks was a guest host on E! News yesterday, and E! News is the outlet that broke the news today. Also, Derulo has reportedly been seen less and less with Sparks, and on September 15, Sparks tweeted, “I just wrote the saddest song of my life.”

As for the split, sources told E! News that it was a mutual breakup and that they hope to remain in one another’s lives–on a friendly basis. But we’re hoping they will work things out, because they were such a cute couple.

Style To Steal, Or Girl Stop: The Best And Worst Looks From The 2014 Billboard Music Awards

While this year’s Billboard Music Awards have been quite uneventful (sorry, it has been kind of dull aside from the MJ hologram performance), we always enjoy tuning into these events for the sake of checking out who was wearing what. Black seemed to be the big color of the night (even if black performers were slim to none), but there were some colorful and just flat out head-scratch worthy looks from a few folks. Let’s discuss the looks of the night from a few of our favorite people.



Nicki Minaj

From head to toe, a toned down Minaj (and we’re loving these more natural looks she has embraced) was dressed in all black. Rocking an Alexander McQueen gown with a few risky cut-outs and a flash of underboob for the Barbs and Ken dolls, it was definitely an interesting look. I’m not crazy about it, but homegirl looks good! Steal!

“I Know He’s The One”: Jordin Sparks Thinks A Proposal Is Coming From Jason Derulo Soon

When you look at Jordin Sparks and her man, Jason Derulo, they’re quite the adorable couple. They’re each other’s support system, and they seem to be head over heels in love these days. In a chat with Life & Style magazine while checking out Derulo’s performance on Dancing With The Stars on Monday (Sparks was there), she was asked about her relationship and the possibility of him popping the question sometime soon. Sparks says that as romantic as her man is, he could be planning something right now.

Though Sparks is usually supporting her man at his rehearsals, his video shoots and performances, his performance on DWTS was the first time she had seen him in a month because of his busy schedule and the sinus surgery she had recently that has kept her grounded:

“This is the first time I got to see him for the past month — it’s great to see him and his hard work pay off.”

However, she was sad because he was heading back out on the road the next day.

“He leaves tomorrow! I can’t go with him. I’m on a ‘no fly’ thing for a little bit after my sinus surgery.”

When asked about past engagement rumors and if she thinks they’ll tie the knot soon, Sparks had this to say:

“We have forever. I’m already there — I know he’s the one. He might be already planning, I never know. He surprised me with those roses, so I don’t know what’s up his sleeve. We’ll see!”

The roses she’s talking about are of course the 10,000 orange roses he filled a hotel room with for her for Valentine’s Day. This isn’t the first time Sparks has spoken about marriage and wedding planning. While chatting with Life & Style last year, she talked about her ideal wedding dress:

“I know I like mermaid style,” says the brunette beauty, who’s maintained her 55-pound weight loss. “I would like to try A-line as well. I’ve never wanted a Cinderella dress, but I’ll probably have to try one on!”

She seems ready! The couple, who both happen to be 24, have been together since 2011 and have been joined at the hip ever since then. She even appeared in the video for his song “Marry Me” last year (so after all that we would hope he’s not out here yanking her chain…). We’ll have to see what happens, but they definitely seem like the perfect couple.

If you’re like me, you’re a sucker for Lifetime movies and Holiday films. I don’t care how cliche or predictable, I’m here for it. So I was really excited to learn that on Saturday, while we’re eating all of our Thanksgiving leftovers, we can do so while watching Tatyana Ali in a Lifetime Holiday movie called “Dear Secret Santa.”

Shadow and Act reports that the film follows a newly single Jennifer who moves back to her childhood home. While there she is flooded with memories of her friend Jack who recently passed away. One day Jennifer gets a Christmas card in the mail from a secret admirer. Who calls himself her secret santa. The admirer knows personal details about her life and so she decides to write him back. In fact, his letters remind her of her friend Jack. Throughout the movie she tries to determine who’s been writing her.

You can watch the trailer for the film which stars Della Reese, Bill Cobbs and Jordin Sparks.

The film premieres on Lifetime on Saturday, November 30 at 8/7c.

From HelloBeautiful 

Jason Derulo hasn’t popped the big question to Jordin Sparks yet, but according to the lyrics of his new song, the day is in the near future!

Jason, who has been in a public relationship with Jordin Sparks for over a year, invited his girlfriend onstage during a recent performance of his second single “Marry Me.” He even kneeled down on one knee as he sang “Wake up every morning with you in my bed/ That’s precisely what I plan to do.”

During an interview with E! News, the 23-year-old said he plans to ask Jordin for her hand in marriage “when the time is right.”

“It is about Jordin, actually, and it’s talking about how amazing it will be when I get down on one knee and it will be the greatest moment of my life,” she gushed. “You can’t fake anything because true love is true love, and that’s the basis of our relationship.”
