Jason Derulo has been faced with a new obstacle as he prepares for his highly-anticipated Super Bowl performance.
The “Wiggle” singer suffered a nasty injury while playing basketball just three weeks ago.
According to a source close to the situation, Derulo was going up for a rebound and landed on someone’s foot, resulting in a small break in his foot and a torn ligament. Despite the setback, he was able to avoid surgery and instead had stem cells injected to aid in the recovery process.
The singer is undergoing daily physical therapy and is currently relying on a cane for mobility.
However, the timing of the injury couldn’t be any worse as Derulo and The Black Keys have been announced as this year’s headliners for the NFL TikTok Tailgate performance.
Despite not being fully recovered, Derulo remains determined to perform.
“Although he may not be fully recovered for the performance, he will power through it, come hell or high water,” said the source.
“This is a true testament to the dedication and passion that Derulo has for his craft,” said music industry veteran, Tim Brown. “Even with a broken foot, he is willing to put on a show for his fans.”
“Jason Derulo has always been one to push the boundaries and defy expectations,” said music journalist, Sarah Johnson. “It’s no surprise that he’s not letting a little injury stop him from delivering an unforgettable performance on Super Bowl Sunday.”
“I broke my damn foot, but I’ll still perform on Super Bowl Sunday,” Derulo declared. “I want to show my fans that nothing can stop me from putting on a show.”
The Super Bowl is one of the biggest events in sports, and Derulo’s determination to perform despite his injury is a testament to his unwavering commitment to his fans and his passion for music.
His resilience and determination to power through the performance is sure to inspire many and leave a lasting impression on audiences.
