Jordin Sparks covered the 2013 Teen Choice Awards blue carpet last night in the Coca-Cola Lounge and she not only interviewed the biggest stars (like the Jonas Brothers), but had some special moments with both Kerry Washington and Miguel.
The songstress phoned in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about last night’s biggest moments, especially one of her favorites which was getting to reveal to Miguel that her desire is to collaborate.
“I’ve been working on my new music as well and it’s been funny because someone I’ve been working with knows Miguel and I’m like, ‘How is it I have not been able to get in touch with him?’ So I used the opportunity to be like, ‘Hey I’ve really been trying to reach out to you, I’d love to work with you.’ And he said he did as well, so hopefully we can get something done soon here, so I can get it on my record.”
Another exciting moment? Singing “A Whole New World” with Scandal actress Kerry Washington!
“I was so excited when she walked into the Coca-Cola Lounge … I really love her work,” Jordin gushed. “And then she sang and she was holding these amazing notes and she’s singing and I was just like, ‘Oh my gosh! Now I’m even more obsessed with you!’”
Jordin also revealed she got yet another tattoo, this time on her wrist, and it means quite a lot to her.
“Jason [Derulo] and I went on vacation to Bora Bora and you know we both love our ink, so we went to one of the best Polynesian tattoo artists and Jason got a huge one, [but] mine is small and dainty [and] it means ‘Unity,’ which I really like … Here’s a little personal [note] cause Jason and I are definitely working on that, like really trying to come together and make decisions together, and you know try and not argue … so I thought unity was really, really great.”
And aside from working on her unity with beau Jason, Jordin’s also been busy working on new music. “I’m so excited and I’m nervous, as well, like are people ready for this?” she admits.
As for her latest single, “Skipping a Beat,” which drops this Wednesday, Jordin explains: “I wanted to give fans a new taste for the new direction I’m going in. It’s older, but fun and happy and sexy at the same time.”
