Jordin Sparks is looking slim and trim in a hot little purple bikini as the graces the cover for Shape magazine. The “Sparkle” actress dishes about everything from her weight loss approach to her multi-faceted career in the August 2012 issue.

Check out this excerpt from the interview:

On deciding to focus on losing weight:

“I just wanted to be healthy. I remember thinking, ‘I’m in my prime. I should be happy and fit.’ That was the moment I decided that changes needed to be made.”

On the major life changes she faced:

“I knew I had a long road ahead of me,” she told Shape. “I was barely working out, and my diet was a mess. I had to address when, what, and how much I was eating.”

On seeing results after eating smaller portions, choosing leaner foods and going hiking in the mountains:

“The weight really started falling off, and I could see my muscles. It was awesome.”

On branching out from music into acting:

“It may seem like I’m spreading myself a bit thin — no pun intended, but I love being creative and want to try a bunch of different things, like TV or another Broadway show.”
