Jordin Sparks: I Made Weight Loss “a Priority”


If you got it, flaunt it!

Jordin Sparks's slimmer, svelte physique has gotten a lot of attention lately, especially since the 21-year-old former American Idol winner posted a bikini-clad photo of herself on Twitter earlier this month.

On Friday, Sparks called in to On Air With Ryan Seacrest to address her recent weight loss. "Instead of just talking about being active, I made it a priority," she explained.

"I was talking to somebody and then we just decided we would be friends, and it was one of those things where I was turning 21 and New Year's was coming and it was like I'm not going to start my resolution on New Years day, I'm going to try to start it early and just stick to it."

So does she have any regrets about that revealing TwitPic? "The funny thing was I just wanted to lay outside and I took a pic of the bathing suit cause I mixed and matched it and I was like, 'Oh this looks good! Should I post it, should I not?' There was a little internal war going on… but it was for me personally a huge step cause if you would've asked me six months ago if I would've posted a picture, I would've said no, no, never!"
