[artist id="2973647"]Jason Derülo[/artist] only has a few weeks to put the finishing touches on his opening set for Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour. The “Whatcha Say” singer has been tapped to join the tour starting December 28, and he still hasn’t talked to Gaga — who is currently on the road with Semi-Precious Weapons and Kid Cudi — to plan what his part of the show will look like.
“Oh, not yet, man! Not yet. We just both have crazy schedules,” he told MTV News at KIIS-FM’s Jingle Ball on Saturday in Los Angeles when asked if he’s talked to Gaga. “My schedule is so crazy that I had Thanksgiving in Ruby Tuesday’s!”
He did say the show would be high-intensity and involve plenty of fancy footwork. “My stage show is really high-energy,” he said. “There’s a lot of dancing. I’ve been dancing my entire life. A lot of people don’t know how well I dance, because I didn’t dance much in the ‘Whatcha Say’ video, just a little flavor-ish. The ‘In My Head’ video, I’m definitely going to pull out lots of stuff on that one.”
With “Whatcha Say” being such a big hit for the singer, who is set to drop his debut album in early 2010, he’s already looking forward to releasing his next single. ” ‘In My Head’ is gonna introduce Jason Derülo a little bit more,” he explained. “I’m really excited for people to kind of understand that I really am a music lover and pull from a lot of genres. I’m just a music lover, so that’s going to be the product of my album. ‘In My Head’ has rock guitars, rock drums. It’s just really, really exciting.”
