Jason Derulo just will not shut the f*ck up about his bulge.
In fairness, it’s well and truly brought his name back into the spotlight, because if you’d asked me what he was up to before this whole photoshopped dick saga, I wouldn’t have had a clue.
To recap: Jason Derulo posted a picture of himself in Bali that left nothing to the imagination. Then he furiously denied it was photoshopped. Then he decided to tell the world that he had half a chub in the picture for some reason. Then Instagram removed the picture for violating their policies. Then Derulo said that taking down the picture was discrimination.
And now? He’s telling us all about how they had to CGI out his dong in Cats.
In an interview with Andy Cohen, Derulo was asked about the fact that everybody starring in Cats was wearing a lycra bodysuit and not much else.
“You’re in tights in Cats, which makes me think maybe they…”
Before the interviewer could even finish, Jason did it for him. “CGI’d the dick out.”
“125 percent. I literally, I could see it in the trailer.”
And if that wasn’t enough information for you, he’s also spoken about the, ahem, very visual problems of working in a bodysuit.
“It was interesting ‘cause we had to wear these—they were like spandex, you know? So, it was, like, very tight, you know? So, it was bulging everywhere. Bulges everywhere and balls everywhere and everything you could possibly imagine.”
Not that I particularly wanted to imagine the situation in the first place, but one viral picture and a movie shot in lycra later, here we are.
I’m beginning to accept that I’ll be doomed to hear about Jason Derulo’s bulge for the rest of my life. We’ll be seeing it everywhere except for Cats, so my thanks to the power of CGI.
