Once upon a time, sixth season American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, 24, waved the flag of purity, even sporting a promise ring, vowing to remain a virgin until marriage.
But when the singer-actress fell head-over-heels for her now ex pop star boyfriend, Jason Derulo, 25, she traded in her V-card and shacked up with her then lover.
Not surprisingly, self-labeled “messy” gossip queen Wendy Williams needled Sparks about her abandoned virtuous lifestyle during an October 1 appearance on her talk show.
“Are any one of these rings the purity ring?” questioned the hostess who popularized the phrase, “How you doin’?”
Seeming momentarily startled, Sparks quickly flashed all ten of her fingers, smiled and gave a quick head shake, confirming the ring was no longer there.
In 2012, Sparks first showed signs of wavering on her purity commitment during a Today Show interview. When asked about it, she said, “You know what? I switch it from day to day — I don’t wear it exactly everyday anymore, but I always have something there.”
