Jordin Sparks and Her Purity Ring

JordinSparksAmericanIdolSeason6GrandFinale

American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, is a virgin and she’s proud of it! Some of you may have noticed a ring on her finger that looks a bit like a simple wedding band but it’s definitely not that!

“This isn’t a wedding ring, and there’s no boy anywhere,” Sparks told Us in the magazine’s June 18 issue.

The ring that she wears is a “purity ring” that she has worn since she was 13. It is inscribed with the words “True Love Waits” and represents her vow to remain chaste.

“I haven’t been in love yet,” she said. “I am saving myself for marriage.”

Her Christian upbringing is something that she holds dear which has affected many of her views aside from marriage and sex.

“I think that [abortion] is wrong,” Sparks told Us. “I’m not going to try to debate people on it; that’s just my opinion… I believe what I believe.”

    Awww, so are we to assume that there never was a “Blordin”? :(

    I think it is awesome that she is saving herself. I think more teen girls need to follow her example in that aspect. It’s a crying shame that they have to run an abstinence campaign geared towards 10 year olds…we need to clean up this floozy Paris Hilton mentality that has been embedded in our young daughters. And I’m glad Jordin is staying away from that whole “abortion” arguement. Her beliefs are hers and anyone else who does not agree with that should not attack her for it. Good for Jordin, I’m happy for her.

    Jeanne, I think you meant “upbringing” LOL…but “unbringing” was pretty funny!
    XOXO

    Waiting until you’re ready to have sex is a great idea. But abstinence pledges are kind of counterproductive: on average, kids who promise not to have sex until they’re married wait a few more months before having premarital sex, but then don’t prepare for it by getting ahold of some condoms, and end up pregnant. Want to stop abortions? Teach kids about birth control.

    A’kyra – I know. I was a little sad when I thought of there not being a “Blordin” but you know there still could be – only a less physical one. Thanks for the typo heads-up. I am frazzled with grad work but I’ll be done by the weekend!!!

    Aaron, I have to agree with you. I’ve been there, I’ve seen it and I was a young mom. My husband, on the other hand, made the pledge and kept it. So, I guess I’ve seen it go either way. No matter what, though, the focus should be on educating.

    Jordin is an excellent role model for young women. I admire her principles and dedication to her faith.

  • gertie

    i wasnt a fan before but i am now! she sounds like a sweet girl who is proud to have morals!

  • http://toptensources.com/topten/american-idol-news Aaron

    She sounds like a sweet young girl who is proud to say she has morals. Whether she actually HAS morals or not, we do not know. All we know is that she loudly proclaims that she doesn’t have sex. Usually that makes me suspicious. I distrust anyone who proclaims their morality and makes big displays of public piety, but I’m a cynical old coot, I guess.

    I love that doll

    I think that Jordin supporting her veiws for abortion is great. She realizes that she can use her celeb power for good, and is ready to support what she believes is right. I do not personaly agree with her view, but I think that if she thinks that is what is right, then she has every right to support it, and every right to try and convince other people of her opinion. I would love to hear her views on the topic, as I am very open to hearing other peoples views on the contraversial topic. I’m glad that she is so open and behind her views.

    So now we have to hear about the Idol’s inner workings of their private parts. Remind me not to eat lunch from now on before I read these things because now I’m about to lose mine.

    I’m not at all surprised Jordin hasn’t had any. There aren’t many guys looking to bag a big hippo in the bush these days. The ring could have just as well been inscribed “Loser, can’t get any” because either way I doubt anyone would have been jumping this heifer.

  • Xilef

    It’s her personnal decision not a crusade!

  • A’kyra

    Amanda and Xilef…I agree :)

    I think that if Jordin is all that she seems to be, she is an excellent role model and I do think she is beautiful.

    Aaron – I can’t discount what you have said. I do worry too. Even if Jordin doesn’t falter, sometimes this type of statement attracts those wanting to “corrupt” someone like her. Then again, Britney Spears was a very famous virgin and then went haywire on her own.

    There’s Katie Holmes, though. Yeah, she *technically* lost her “V” card out of wedlock but she married Tom and she seems to have high morals and standards. I think that’s why people pick on her so much.

    Was that the ring on her left hand that flew off her finger during her American Idol performance?
