Singer and new star of the upcoming movie Sparkle, Jordin Sparks takes her talents over to V Magazine for a featured story. Peep the article below…
Looks like Sparks has struck a match in her career. Straight from the movie set of Sparkle and to recently giving a tribute the late Whitney Houston on the Billboard Awards, Jordin is on her own top with a great new look!
Arriving at a crowded L.A. restaurant for lunch with Jordin Sparks, we find the 23-year-old singer/actress tucked away in a corner booth, the contents of her cosmetics bag spilled haphazardly across the table. “I have meetings with my agents and a potential manager today, so I want to put my best face forward,” she explains, dabbing foundation onto her already luminous visage.
Most celebs treat their makeup regimes as classified information. But Sparks isn’t that kind of girl. All wide-eyed enthusiasm and toothy grin, the Glendale, Arizona, native charmed her way into the nation’s living rooms (and Simon Cowell’s icy heart) in 2007 when at 16 she became the youngest person ever to win American Idol. Now she’s set to tackle the big screen in the title role of the new Whitney Houston–backed reboot of the 1976 film, Sparkle.
Part musical, part cautionary tale, the movie tells the story of three sisters, Sparkle, Delores (Tika Sumpter), and Sister (Carmen Ejogo), whose successful Motown singing act disintegrates in the face of drug addiction and familial strife. Originally Houston had signed on solely as executive producer, but eventually agreed to also play the girls’ mother, Emma. “I think she was hesitant at first, and then she said, ‘Yeah, I really want to do that,’” says Sparks.
