    Jason Derulo Shared The Secret To Making His TikToks Go Viral And Said He Makes Over $75,000 Per Video

    BRB, making a TikTok account.

    OK, if you know me then you know I've been avoiding TikTok like the plague.


    I just don't see the hype. However, it's becoming increasingly difficult not to make an account. Especially considering TikTok videos are one-fourth of what we write about at BuzzFeed. Thanks, Gen Z'ers.

    But recently, I discovered some pretty alluring news that has me rethinking my position about the app.


    In an interview with Complex, Jason Derulo responded to rumors that he makes $75,000 for his zany TikTok videos.

    You’ve seen the now-viral clips where he pretends to chip his tooth by eating corn off a power drill...


    Don’t try this 😭😭😭

    Anyway, according to Jason — Mr. Desrouleaux, if you're nasty — that number ($75K) is way off.

    “I think it’s tacky to say what I do make from them, but it’s far more than that,” he told Complex. “But, I’m not going to say what it is," the singer added.

    Well, that's nice. Thank you for sparing my poor feelings, Jason.


    The anaconda owner did share a key ingredient to becoming a successful TikToker, saying, “I feel like I thrive on TikTok because I can show me. TikTok is all about creation and I love building things from nothing.”

    Noted. Now excuse me while I go make a TikTok account and get filthy rich!


    *JK, I'm sure it's not that easy. But hey, I can dream, right?
