No need to run and get your glasses because nope, you’re not seeing double. That’s just Jason Derulo and, um, Jason Derulo in the brand spankin’ new Double Take video! The “In My Head” singer is the latest celeb to star in the series of Power Balance vids where celebrities interview — and make fun of — themselves. Jason asked himself about his comparisons to Usher and his interesting fashion choices and it’s hysterical! Who knew Jason was such a natural comedian?

Oh, and be sure to stay tuned for the full video tomorrow!
Teen.com: So your video is hysterical! How did you get involved with the project?
Jason Derulo: It was through my managers. They brought it to me and I thought it would be fun. You don’t often get to take the piss out of yourself and show you’re funny and (that you) don’t take yourself too seriously.
Teen.com: Are you excited that your fans will get to see your funny side?
Jason Derulo: I am excited. I don’t think people realize that this is a major side of me. A lot of my fans don’t know that, and I think it’s really cool for them to find out who I really am.
Teen.com: In the video you compare yourself to Usher. Do you usually get compared to other musicians?
Jason Derulo: When I had braids a couple of years back, people used to think I was R. Kelly. Nowadays it’s more Usher I guess.
Teen.com Did you get to choose some of the jokes in the video?
Jason Derulo: Absolutely. I never want to say something that I don’t believe or think, or doesn’t sound like me. I got to add in some jokes myself, which was really cool. I was working with some great SNL writers, which was a lot of fun. I really liked it! I really like watching it and filming it. I would like to do another video like that if I could.
Teen.com: You also mentioned in the video that you do well with the ladies. Do you have a “type” when it comes to girls?
Jason Derulo: I like all kinds of ladies. Maybe that’s my problem. I do pretty well.
Teen.com: With Valentine’s Day coming up, tell us about your most romantic date you’ve ever been on.
Jason Derulo: I had breakfast on South Beach just as the sun was rising.
Teen.com: Other than this Power Balance video, what other projects are you working on in 2011?
Jason Derulo: I have my second album coming out in June with the first single releasing in March. And I’d like to do more acting, but I know I should only really focus on one thing at a time.
