Artists like Run DMC, Ashanti, Doug E.

The album features tracks with names like “We Like Vegetables,” “Veggie Luv,” “Get Up Sit Up” and “U R What You Eat,” all designed to get kids thinking about health and diet. Ten music videos are set to be released with the album and will be distributed to schools in New York City, with other major cities to follow.

Jason Derulo Dances Again, Covers YRB & Shares His Favorite Workout

20130508-223658.jpg

A year ago, Jason Derulo probably didn’t think he would be able to dance again, never mind open up a performance on Dancing With The stars doing a headstand, but that’s exactly what he did.

Coming off of a tragic neck injury (a broken neck to be exact) Jason shows no signs of ever being hurt. Performing his new single “The otherside” on tonight’s episode of DWTS, and celebrating being on the cover of this months issue of YRB magazine, and having his beautiful girlfriend/singer Jordin Sparks by his side through it all, Jason Derulo is officially back, and ready to take on the world.

Shortly after shooting an incredible high energy performance for the world to see on DWTS, Jason headed over to Couture night club in Hollywood to promote his YRB magazine cover.

Many fans and friends were in attendance to support Derulo, including Dancing With The Stars champion Derek Hough.

Mingling amongst the crowd and smiling for the fans and their cameras at the event, Jason took a quick break to speak to us about his health and how he stays in shape.

When asked about what types of work outs he does, he said he switches up his workout everyday. He explained he works out about 2 hours a day, doing various types of exercises. He said there’s one type of workout specifically that he enjoys;

“I enjoy breakdancing as a good workout, because it focuses on big muscle groups, and I always do abs.”

When asked if he works out with his girlfriend Jordin Sparks, he said; Yes, definitely.

“We workout together. She does breakdancing with me, she’s actually getting pretty good at freezes. Watch out for her”

They say a couple that works out together, stays together. We are definitely happy to see Jason healthy, back at it with his music , all while still in love.
