Jason Derulo has been mum on his relationship with girlfriend and American Idol alum Jordin Sparks, but since his near death experience, when he broke his vertebrae, he’s got a new lease on life and ‘aint afraid to talk up his lovely girlfriend Jordin.
“My favorite thing about Jordin…she always thinks about somebody else, before she thinks about herself.” Derulo told Hollyscoop at the American Idol finale show taping on Wednesday.
“She’ll go to all these different charity events. She’s really showed me a different side of the industry. I’ve attended more charity evens in the last few months than I’ve attended in my whole life, because she’s the type of person. She’s taught me a lot in that sense.”
The young couple is going strong, but don’t expect to hear wedding bells in their near future.
“Hey, whoa, whoa!” says Derulo, “We’re young, we’re very young. We’re both 22.”
For now, Derulo is just working on new music citing that his neck fracture has lit a fire of creative energy for the young pop star, “The accident changed me as a man, as an artist, as a songwriter…I’ve been working on a new record because I’ve been so inspired by this whole situation and it’s been really cool.”
Derulo even teases us with the kind of collaborations we can expect from the new album, “I’ve been inviting some friends over to collaborate…We’ll see who will be on this one.”
“It’s still early in the process, a lot of people have come over but who’s actually going to make the record, I’m not sure yet,” says Derulo.
