Jordin Sparks: A Virgin.... and Proud of It!

by at . Comments

Jordin Sparks sports a platinum band on her wedding finger - but don't expect to see the American Idol sixth-season champ walking down the aisle anytime soon.

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

Instead, the 17-year-old Glendale, AZ-native said she's worn the "purity ring" with the inscription "True Love Waits" since she was 13.

Stay Away, Boys!

Sparks is the youngest American Idol winner; and while other champs and finalists are reportedly smitten by everyone from professional athletes to television news anchors, Sparks says she isn't in any rush to get involved in a romantic relationship.

"I haven't been in love yet," she said. "I am saving myself for marriage."

Due to her Christian upbringing, virginity is just one of the values that Sparks says she believes in.

"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."
