Hollywoodlife.com spoke with Jason Derulo exclusively about his Teen Choice Award nominations, new album and relationship rumors!

Earlier today Radaronline.com reported Jason Derulo is dating his Teen Choice Awards date, Gossip Girl sweetheart Tika Sumpter. But Jason told us exclusively that is not true — the two are just friends.

“No, I’m not dating her, but I’m taking her to the Teen Choice Awards,” Jason told us.

Jason said the two met on the set for his video new single, “It Girl,” where she played the main girl.”We met there a couple weeks back,” he explained.

Jason is nominated for two Teen Choice Awards, Choice Music R&B/Hip-hop and Choice Award Male Artist. The singer is competing against Justin Bieber, Cee Lo Green, Bruno Mars and Enrique Inglesias for best male artist.

When asked who he thinks is going to win, Jason said: “I don’t know who is going to win, but what a great category to be in.”

“It Girl” is his second single on his album, Future History — which hits stores Sept. 27. When describing his album, Jason thinks his album is more personal than his last one, which included songs “Ridin’ Solo,” and”Watchya Say.”

“These are more edgy, more emotional, a little more personal and that’s who I am now. That’s the difference between the last and this one,” he said.

We wish Jason the best of luck this weekend at the Teen Choice Awards this Sunday, Aug. 7.

Do YOU think Jason will take home the awards?

what a pity that Jason hasn’t won the awards. But i hope in 2012 will be better. Right now i’m waiting for his new album ‘Future History’. It’s gonna be amazing. I can’t wait.

p.s. His performance on Tenn Choice was incredible. All the time dancing and singing. Fantastic :)
