American Idol champion Jordin Sparks says she doesn’t regret her comment to host Russell Brand when he made his anti-purity ring jokes towards the Jonas Brothers during last Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards. She did say that she wished that she would have worded what she said a little bit better.
“It’s something I feel strongly about,” she tells EW.com. “I wish I would’ve worded it differently ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬” that somebody who doesn’t wear a promise ring isn’t necessarily a slut ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â¬” but I can’t take it back now. It was a split-second thing, and it came out kind of wrong. Still, I don’t regret it.”
The Jonas Brothers complimented her backstage later for her remarks.
Jordin also said that she had no hard feelings toward Brand, and he and Sparks shared a laugh about the situation after the show. “I have nothing against him at all,” says the singer, who insists she’s not turned off by the experience. In fact, she stated that she’d happily go back. That is, “If I get an invite.”
