Jason Derulo and his smoking hot "American Idol"-winning girlfriend Jordin Sparks are easily one of the music business' cutest couples. So we were anxious to get Mr. "Marry Me" to take our Valentine's-themed POPsessions Q&A.

Jason doesn't hold back, revealing the identity of a former crush, the taste of his first kiss and how he would like to spend 22 hours of his Valentine's Day, plus much more.

Who was your first musical crush? 

My first musical crush was Beyoncé and Destiny’s Child. Everybody had their favorites and my cousins all picked a member. Beyoncé was the one on my wall. 

What song was playing during your first kiss?

There was no song playing during my first kiss. It was after school one day by the buses, and I was in the dark hallway. I remember her mouth tasting weird. I was like, 'Wow, is this what I’ve been waiting for?' It wasn’t all that. 

What's the best breakup song ever?

I don’t know what the best break up song is, but I wrote a song called 'Riding Solo,' and it helped me get through what I was going through, at least. I think it empowers others, too. People come up me all the time and tell me how it’s helped them through their break-up. 

Who is your favorite romantic singer?

My favorite romantic singer is India.Arie.

What is your fave album to listen to on a lonely Valentine's Day?

I’m not lonely so that doesn’t apply to me.

Does the idea of a couple making out to your music flatter you, or just freak you out?

Ha! It flatters me.

Who’s the coolest couple in music?

Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez [laughs]. Of course you know I’m going to say Jordin and I. 

What's the most romantic moment in movie history? 

In Titanic, the moment where Kate Winslett is holding Leonardo DiCaprio’s hand and he’s about to die and she says, 'I’ll never let go, Jack.' She did, though, and he sunk.

What romantic movie role do you wish you could play?

I’d be Aladdin. Or maybe Simba from Lion King because he was black, at least in the Broadway show. Haha.

Who is your favorite fairytale princess?

Jasmine from Aladdin

What is the most romantic city to visit?

Paris. But that’s kind of cliché, so I’ll go with Turks and Caicos. 

Describe your ideal Valentine’s Day date.

A day with food, drinks and good conversation. Two hours out and 22 hours home. Haha.

Flowers or chocolates?

Flowers AND chocolates.

Do you watch/hate-watch 'The Bachelor'?

Nope, I don’t watch.

Overall, are you pro- or anti-Valentine’s Day?

I’m a little bit of both.  Because I think Valentine’s Day should be every day [laughs]. No, but I think Valentine’s Day is good. It’s a good reminder to celebrate the people that you love. 

If someone did that 'Say Anything' boombox thing outside your window, would you be into it, or call the police?

I’d call the police, quick.
