How Jason Derulo, Prince of the Sexy Club Banger, Ended Up in Cats

Jason Derulo is disappointed in himself. This morning, after waking up at 5:30 a.m., he couldn’t find his sneakers. And then he had to find the gym.

Usually he can power through 100 push-ups in 10 minutes, but today he only hit 80. And for one of the world’s top-selling pop artists—and, now, an actor with a breakthrough role in the live-act...
