Jason Derulo on BET Awards Snub: “I’ma Do What I Do”

Jason Derulo had one of the biggest urban/pop hits in “Talk Dirty,” received tons of airplay on urban radio, but when it came to the 2014 BET Awards, he received no love for his body of work.

In a recent interview with Pacific Rim Video host Chris Trondsen, during “So You Think You Can Dance,” the hit-maker admits he doesn’t “understand” why he gets no love from a network he grew up watching.

“Honestly, in that world, for sure man, hands down…When you see all these other shows, when you see the VMAs, when you see the AMAs, and you see what happens on those shows, for that world [BET] to still be behind, like I don’t understand it,” states Derulo in the below clip. “I’m almost done with it to be honest with you. I’m not going to continue to extend myself if they’re not going to extend back. I love BET, I grew up watching it, but I’ma do what I do, and I’m not going to change it for anybody; the color of my skin is not gonna change either. It is what it is!”

Maybe next year Jason could possibly hit the BET stage or snag some nominations.
