Jason Derulo, 30, opened up about his recent controversial Instagram post on "GMA3: Strahan, Sara & Keke."

"When I posted this, it was early in the morning I was like, 'this is a good photo of myself,'" Derulo said. "That's what you do when you think you look good in a photo, you post it. But never in a million years did I think it was gonna be my most-liked photo ... in an afternoon. It wasn't even a whole day."

The singer and actor said he’s flattered fans and followers thought the picture flaunting his physique was photoshopped.

"I think that's a super compliment, that's incredible," Derulo said. "That's hilarious. In your daily life when somebody tells you, 'oh, you're so great,' that's one thing, but if you start getting rumors that you think I did something that means it's like well-endowed. That means it's impressive. To everybody that said that, thank you very much. I appreciate you."

The Instagram post has since been taken down for violating the platform’s policy on nudity and sexual activity.
