Things happen for a reason and that was HIS wakeup call.
via eonline.com Jason Derülo has reached the "Other Side" in more ways than one. Speaking toThe Huffington Post U.K., the 23-year-old R&B singer opens up about how his 2012 accident forced him to reevaluate his priorities.
"I was hardcore drinking every single night," the hit maker recalls. "I was partying until crazy times in the evening then getting on the plane at 6 in the morning, walking in the airport like a zombie because I was drunk and hungover from the last nights."
"Before my accident I was on autopilot," he explains. "I don't really think that was the right road. I was not being smart. Being young and somebody who travels the world, you can easily get caught up and kind of lose yourself in it all. I think my injury really helped to wake me up a little bit."
Jordin Sparks boyfriend continues, "When I was writing my second album I was drinking every single night, like hardcore. At one point I lost my voice and I couldn't record for a couple of weeks because I was drinking just coffee and alcohol."
