Jordin Sparks is on the road to a healthier lifestyle.
The season six American Idol winner showed off her new haircut - full frontal bangs - at Crystal Light Liquid’s Words With Friends event on Wednesday night, after recently having lost 55 pounds in the last two and a half years. Although the 23-year-old was struck with appendicitis in 2009, she is taking better care of her body.
"Fall 2010 through March , that's kind of when I lost the first 30 pounds, she told Life & Style magazine. "By March of last year, I lost 50. And then I maintained it for the rest of the year."
Sparks had been living healthily not only on a physical level, but emotionally as well. The No Air singer is happy in her relationship with her boyfriend Jason Derulo, who was affected by a serious neck injury after performing a stunt for his Future History World Tour last year.
"It's incredible because he was pretty fit before he broke his neck but literally as soon as the doctor said he could be in the gym, which was maybe like a month after, he was there," said Sparks, according to the New York Daily News. "So I was like, 'Well if you're going to do this with a broken neck, I gotta get my butt in there too.' So we were doing it together."
The singer said that with the two supporting each other, they are able to maintain a healthy lifestyle both physically and mentally.
