Jason DeRulo may intend to marry girlfriend of two years, Jordin Sparks — and made it clear in his single, “Marry Me” — but it doesn’t mean he’s ready to pop the question anytime soon.
In fact, the singer says, the song was originally intended to be for Jordin only. But after Jordin encouraged Jason to put it on his third album, the public has heard his message… and the pressure is officially on for him to come up with a diamond ring and a grand proposal.
“I was just trying to explain that we have forever, so what’s the rush,” Jason tells MTV.
But considering the fact that Jason and Jordin are obviously serious — at least, according to the crazy amount of roses he sent her on Valentine’s day? — an engagement has to be on the way, right? Most people would think so, but Jason says not necessarily.
“There is a lot of pressure, and there was a lot of pressure before the song,” Jason says. “I wrote the song because of the pressure and then I made the pressure worse because people just listen to the chorus and all they hear is ‘Will you marry me?’ so they’re like ‘Oh you’re proposing.’ I’m like, ‘No.’”
So what is Jason saying? “In the song I’m saying, when the time is right,” the “Talk Dirty” singer explains. “I’m saying we have the rest of our lives. So the perfect time is on its way.”
When the right time comes, Jason and Jordin will know it — and it won’t be because Jason’s fans decided they should get married. Whenever it happens, it happens… and the floral arrangements at the weddings better be spectacular.
