Jason Derulo came out with an important message to the entire world in his goodbye message to Miller.
I’m praying that one day addiction isn’t praised but treated. I’m praying that one day “positivity” will be cool. I’m praying for mothers that must be wondering where they went wrong. I’m praying for these families left behind.
A bright star dimmed way too soon.
