Jordin Sparks hit the red carpet at the premiere of her new movie Sparkle and did just as the title suggests… sparkled. The American Idol winner also showed off her new slimmer figure after dropping 50lbs since her big win in 2007.
Jordin graces the cover of the September issue of Redbook magazine, and in an interview for the magazine, she shared about her weight loss journey.
“My whole journey has been about self-acceptance,” she told the magazine. “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.”
In the film Sparkle, Jordin plays Sparkle Anderson, one of three sisters trying to hit it big as a Motown girl-group. The late Whitney Houston plays mother to the three girls in what was her last film role. Sparkle opens in theaters today.
