American Idol alum, Jordin Sparks, 23, is looking better than ever these days. Not only is she looking slimmer than ever, she’s changed up her hairdo too and is rocking new bangs. Keep reading for more details.
According to US Weekly, Sparks was spotted on Wednesday, May 8 at an event in New York City and she was sporting a slimmer physique and freshly cut bangs.
While Sparks looks like the picture of health these days, it hasn’t always been that way. In fact, she has battled with health problems in the past. In 2009, she struggled through appendicitis and underwent surgery. And since then, she’s lost a whopping 50-pounds.
Now, she says, “For me to be on stage singing and dancing, the stamina that I have now is better. I don’t get sick as much anymore…I feel better, I have more energy, I sleep better…everything is better.”
And her love life is better than ever too. She and boyfriend Jason Derulo are still going strong and she hopes to marry him someday. Just today he tweeted, “I laugh, I love, I hope, I try, I hurt, I need, I fear, I cry & I know u do the same things too so we’re really not that different, me and u.” Too sweet! Shortly after, Sparks re-tweeted Derulo’s message.
