Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks recently ended their three-year relationship and no one really understood why. They seemed to really be happy together and worked well… but all good things must come to an end, I suppose. Especially since Jordin really wanted to get married and Jason was feeling pressured and did NOT want to walk down the aisle.
“Though I think it is a private matter and intended to keep my break-up Jordin personal, due to bogus and irresponsible lies being reported by insensitive media outlets it became necessary for me to comment,” Derulo told ABC News. “I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met. But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part. Infidelity, cheating or deceit played no part in our relationship or our break-up, and I hope that people respect our privacy as we move forward with our lives.”
Jason Derulo and Jordin Sparks have been dating for what seems like forever – in reality, it’s been a few years (which is like eternity in Hollywood years, anyway). Unfortunately, their romance has come to an end and the relationship is over… but it’s okay! They’re totally cool about it!
Speak for yourself! Jason Derulo confirmed that he and Jordin Sparks have called it quits during an interview with KDWB in Minneapolis on Thursday, Sept. 25, but said that everything is “cool.”
Although Derulo was at first hesitant to talk about the news (he told radio host Lucas “I’d rather not” when first asked about the split) he did say that they’ll remain friends.
“Everything is cool man,” Derulo said when asked if the two will stay pals. “It’s not a bad situation, it’s not one of those kinds of things,” he added.
Apparently they’re both actually pretty upset about this (says “a source”) and it’s all down to the fact that they work and travel too much to actually have any time together. That’s unfortunately the sort of sad compromise you make when you’re in the public eye – and I think why a lot of these Hollywood relationships don’t really last. If you never see each other and you’re so focused on being a star, it doesn’t leave much room for forming deep and lasting love. I mean, I guess it happens… but it’s pretty rare.
I love love as much as the next person, but 10,000 roses? COME ON! Jason Derulo wanted to show just how much he loves longtime girlfriend Jordin Sparks, so for Valentine’s Day, he literally sent 10,000 pink roses to her home (hotel room? hard to tell) to surprise her. Sure, I guess that’s “romantic”, but if that was me, I’d have asked why we couldn’t have spent the money on something better… like, say, 10,000 donuts or 10,000 slices of pizza. But, you know, that’s just me.
What do you think of the gesture? Romantic or tacky?
The American Music Awards happened and I don’t think anyone really cared that much, but here’s your outfit recap, just in case. Yeah, it’s a day late. Honestly, who really cares? We covered Katy Perry’s “is this offensive” Geisha performance, which was probably the most interesting thing of the whole night. So here’s the outfits, a touch late, but we can still have fun oooo-ing and aaaah-ing and WTF-ing. Which is what I’ll need your help with. I want you to pick the best, worst, and most WTF outfit of the night. Here we go!
Oh now, this is sad. What’s sad? That Whitney’s dead? Well, yes, that’s pretty sad, but it’s not all that unexpected, come on. Not with a decades-long battle with drug abuse. You know what’s really sad? That this song has even been released, and for a few reasons. One? It’s crap. It’s seriously pure crap, and if Whitney hadn’t passed, I highly doubt this movie would even make the cut for the ‘Sparkle soundtrack. It’s that bad. Second? Poor Whitney couldn’t even sing anymore. You can just hear how heavy-handed the digital technicians were on this song—but just with Whitney‘s part. It sounds like her voice was dubbed in and added at a later date. I’m not going to even use the word “autotune” here, because “autotune” would give the impression that a flawless performance was at hand, and there’s nothing even close to that at hand here.
Me, I say let sleeping dogs lie, and allow Whitney’s fans to remember her the way she used to be—how she was during her prime—and not mess around with this sad-ass business of hearing and seeing what it’s like to watch a music great unravel before your very eyes. Damn.
Like Taylor Swift here. Taylor Swift looked ok at the Billboard Music Awards. In fact, I’d wager that she had the best look of the night, generally speaking. I really like her dress, and it obviously looks great on her.
Another lady who had a good look was Brandy, but to be honest, I can’t decide if I actually like her dress or if I just think she looks nice because I’ve always been envious of hair like that. Regardless, gold shoes!
Next up is Jordin Sparks, who I’ve always thought was completely adorable, wearing a lovely little dress. This one is remarkable because it’s one of the only dresses I’ve ever seen on a red carpet that I would actually like to wear in real life:
Then there’s one of our favorite ladies, Zooey Deschanel, going after my own heart in a sparkly dress and black tights:
But then we have my personal favorite dress, worn by the very fabulous Carrie Underwood:
Is it because she’s legal now (she is legal, isn’t she? I’m not a complete letch for posting these photos am I)? Is it because she’s finally exposed her body, and quit hiding behind yards and yards of fabric? I don’t really know. She’s always been pretty gorgeous, but I never really thought of her as ‘hot.’ I have a feeling we’re gonna need to watch this one, ’cause now that she’s got the confidence (I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt and call it confidence for now) to be posting photos like this on her Twitter page, then we better be prepared.
