Jason Derulo starts a mob

Jason Derulo stunned onlookers in New York by starting a flash mob to promote his latest album.

The 22-year-old singer took to the street with the New York Nicks basketball team's City Dancers to highlight the release of 'Future History' - which came out on Tuesday (27.09.11) - by putting on a spontaneous performance on some of his new songs.

Speaking on the Kyle and Jackie O show on 2Day FM, he said: "I wanted to celebrate 'Future History' coming out here in America, basically I got with the Nicks dancers - who are the basketball team dancers - we went out in the middle of the street and had an impromptu performance.

"I think as long as you're not disturbing the peace you're cool ... we could just be walking you know ... to the beat ... and you have no idea where the music is coming from."

The 'Don't Wanna Go Home' hitmaker admitted he's "just friends" with 'American Idol' winner Jordin Sparks, but he is shocked when people do not want to be mates with his acquaintance David Hasselhoff.

He added: "Hasselhoff is an awesome guy, he's one of those people that's really kind-hearted, his heart is always in the right place, how could you not want to be friends with the Hoff!"
