AceShowbiz - Jason Derulo is opening up about his key to success. The 32-year-old "Swalla" singer said in a new interview that he has taken inspiration from his "low moments" as well as his "downfalls."
Jason admits that self-improvement has been his drive "for a very long time" and he's used his setbacks to fuel his ambitions. The singer, who has a 16-month-old son named Jason with ex-girlfriend Jena Frumes, shared, "My downfalls and when I have low moments, those moments really drive me. At my lowest lows, it's like, 'Dang, I gotta really sink my teeth in and just go for gold.' "
Jason explained that working out has been key to escaping his personal woes. The "Ridin' Solo" hitmaker told E!'s digital series "DRIVE!", "The gym is a perfect place to let off the steam because you can go as hard as you need to go. When you just wanna scream inside and you wanna just, like, 'Ahh, I can't believe this is happening,' you can put all of that energy into the weight. And I think, for me, the gym has been a lifesaver."
Earlier this year, Jena claimed that she was "disrespected" and "cheated on" by Jason. The actress accused her ex-boyfriend of being unfaithful during an exchange with a social media follower. Jena posted a photo of herself in a bikini on Instagram and captioned the image, "You are beautiful, you are worth it and YOU are irreplaceable. Don't forget that. (sic)" In response, the follower said, "Worth it in what way? You're not married, which means your child is a b****** and you're playing the w**** role. Y'all got morals mixed up. (sic)"
But Jena quickly hit back at the criticism. She replied, "I wouldn't call myself a w**** its unfortunate situation didn't work out because we once did aspire to be married but maybe it's best to be single than to be in a relationship and constantly be disrespected and cheated on and lied to. Or is it better to stay quiet so people like you approve? (sic)"
