Jordin Sparks is looking better than ever!
The 22-year-old Sparkle star shows off her banging body in a two-piece purple bikini for the August 2012 cover of Shape magazine.
In the issue, Jordin opens up about everything from her decision to drop the pounds to getting the acting bug.
On losing weight: “I just wanted to be healthy. I remember thinking, ‘I’m in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment I decided that changes needed to be made.”
On challenges she’s dealt with: “I knew I had a long road ahead of me,” she told Shape. “I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating.”
On seeing results after eating smaller portions: “The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome.”
On acting: “It may seem like I’m spreading myself a bit thin — no pun intended, but I love being creative and want to try a bunch of different things, like TV or another Broadway show.”
