Jordin Sparks Brings Her Sparkle To The Cover Of REDBOOK
Jordin Sparks is the new Jennifer Hudson. Just like J-Hud after her impressive weight loss, the “Battlefied” singer dominates magazine covers with her new look and the story of how she lost 50 pounds.
The “Sparkle” star looks stunning on the Giles Bensimon shot while she opened up about the death of her co-star Whitney Houston, boyfriend Jason Derulo, her weight loss and more. Check out the highlights of her interview!
On how Whitney Houston‘s death puts ‘Sparkle’ in a new light:
“I get so overwhelmed because it’s my first film, and for my first film to be so deep and heavy…I got to work with one of my idols and sing with her, and she even played my mother. I don’t know if anything will ever be as good as this. Sometimes I ask myself, ‘Why did I deserve to have a part in a film like this?’ I don’t want this to come off crazy but somebody said to me ‘It’s like Whitney essentially passed the torch’. And to hear that, it’s just nuts.”
“My whole journey has been about self-acceptance. There’s no quick or magical way to lose weight. You just have to do it the natural way – diet and exercise and stick to it – and be able to do it at your own pace. Everyone has their own thing.”
On finding love with Jason Derulo:
“We both went through things that were tragic, and that brought us even closer together. He had a near-death experience, and I lost someone. Priorities get in line when stuff like that happens. Family is what matters – and being with the people you love.”
On why Hollywood’s party scene is not for her:
“Oh, I’m waaay to scared to dabble into anything like that. I like the way my heart beats, I like the way I think; I don’t need or want anything to change that. The first thing I think of is, ‘what would my grandparents say?’ My mom and dad would kick my butt.”
The September issue of REDBOOK with Jordin on the cover is out August 14.
