New 'American Idol' champ Jordin Sparks saving herself for marriage

By Christopher Rocchio, 06/12/2007 

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 Weekly 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.  Sparks is the youngest Idol winner out of the Fox mega-hit's six installments, and while other Idol 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 told US.  "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."
