Jason Derulo 'grown up' since breaking his neck

Jason Derulo has "really grown up" since breaking his neck.

The 'Talk Dirty' singer suffered a huge setback when he snapped one of his vertebrae while rehearsing for a tour in 2012 - an injury that could have left him paralyzed - and since he has healed he looks upon life differently.

Speaking at the US edition of OK! Magazine's Pre-Grammys Party this weekend, He said: "It was a very, very crazy experience, obviously breaking your neck is not something you think is ever going to happen to you, but I learned a lot from it man, and I feel like I've really grown up from it. Life is a little bit different, I don't' take moments for granted, but the journey has been really cool. Since then I've had all these top ten records, and number ones, and I'm in a really good place."

Jason - who also performed at the party, singing hits including 'Ridin' Solo', 'In My Head', 'The Other Side' and 'Whatcha Say' - has previously said his relationship with Jordin Sparks, who introduced him on stage, got serious when she helped him with his recovery, and they both have matching tattoos to show their commitment to each other.

Jason added: "Jordin and I both have the same tattoo, saying 'more than yesterday' and it means I love you more than yesterday, and also means I strive to be more than yesterday."

Other stars to attend the event included Lance Bass, Mike Posner and the stars of reality show 'Vanderpump Rules'.
