Jason Derulo is trying to silence the critics after his breakup from Jordin Sparks.

Just a couple of days after E! News exclusively revealed the couple's split, the 25-year-old headed to Instagram to share a message to his decriers.

Without a caption, Derulo shared a picture of Leonardo DiCaprio with the text, "Cheers to my haters. Be patient, so much more is coming…"

The cryptic post comes one day after "The Other Side" singer performed with the University of Southern California Marching Band at the Los Angeles Coliseum. It marked Derulo's first public appearance since the split was announced.

According to sources, the marching band was thrilled to have the artist perform "Trumpets" with them during halftime.

"He looked good. He was all smiles," a source told E! News about Derulo's demeanor on game day. "After singing, he turned around and thanked the band. He seemed genuinely grateful for the opportunity to perform with the Trojan Marching Band."

Derulo also attended the band's rehearsal last Tuesday to ensure the event was a success. The hard work paid off as the performance went off without a hitch.

"It really spruced up an otherwise average show," another source told E! News. "He was very thankful and seemed to be very happy with the way it turned out."

Derulo has tried to assure fans that the recent breakup was far from nasty. In fact, he plans to stay friendly with his ex.

"Yeah, everything is cool," he told KDWB-FM's Big D during a phone interview. "It's not a bad situation. You know, it's not one of those kinda things." He also squashed rumors that infidelity, cheating or deceit played a role in the breakup.

"I spent three great years with Jordin and she is one of the most amazing people that I have ever met," he told ABC News. "But as in all relationships there are ups and downs and at this time we have decided to amicably part."

As for Sparks, she left fans with this message on Twitter: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
