LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Jordin Sparks has a whole lot to celebrate, but there’s a lot less of the singer!
After debuting her new trim body recently on Twitter in a sexy two-piece, the 21-year-old is now in the pages of People’s “Most Amazing Bodies” issue, where she shows off her figure (and lotus flower tattoo!) in two different bikinis.
“I didn’t know it was going to get the reaction that it got, but overall it’s been really, really positive,” Jordin recently told Access Hollywood.
The singer has gone from a size 14 to a size 8 and lost 30 pounds, through a combination of long hikes, Zumba Latin dance-inspired cardio classes, as well as some adjustments to how she eats.
“My diet has pretty much remained the same, like if I want a piece of bread, I’m gonna have a piece of bread, but [I’m] making healthier decisions like instead of a bag of chips for a snack, I’ll see if I can find an apple,” she told Access. “[I’ve also] upped my intake of vegetables [and I’m] drinking a lot more water.”
In addition to a new body, Jordin also recently dropped a new single, “I Am Woman,” which is all about empowering women.
“It’s everything that women say all the time,” she said of her new single.
