I turned 21 myself recently and I think it makes women such as myself increasingly comfortable with themselves and their desires.
Every day now I discover something new. Go through phases in which I feel much more in touch with my feminine side, in ways I never thought possible. I’m letting my desires speak as loud as they can. I’m loving it! I feel like more of a woman now. It definitely makes me feel so much sexier than ever before.
I want to send a message that I’m an ordinary girl who’s struggled to find herself like everyone else, but I’ve finally figured out who I am now. It’s so liberating.

To Jordan,
What has happened to the “sweet, innocent, Christian, pro-life” Jordan? I miss who you were when you won American Idol. It seemed, seeing you last that you have joined the ranks of what the world thinks is the way that you should go. I so loved how you were before – sorta like how Lauren is now in that she didn’t want to sing the word “evil” as “l”ady gaga encouraged her to do even though she felt didn’t feel comfortable doing it. Is that what happened to you Jordan? Caved in to what our culture expects/wants or was it fame, fortune, pressure from producers, etc. But remember, it’s never too late. And if God wants you to be popular in spite of what others think, it will happen in spite of what you may think now.

There are many of us (more than you would think) out there hoping you would return to your original belief and become a pure voice once again in this world that entices young girls like you to think it’s “womanly” to be as you were last night on AI – not true. You are a beautiful beautiful woman but not in the way that new song states. You are beautiful because you were created in the image of who God made you to be you. Return to being who are meant to be not what the world thinks you should be.

Love,
a mother, a sister, a grandmother who has prayed a prayer that I probably will not know until eternity. If in the slim chance this comment gets to you Jordan, please respond if this has impacted you in any way.

ps – this is my first of ever doing a comment online.

@candace pritikin: I REALLY think you are reading too much into Jordin’s performance last night. Gee, do not forget Loren is 16 and Jordin Sparks is 21! When Jordin was 16 I am sure she would not have sung nor danced like that. You need to lighten up with our Jordin because I no she is still the same person with her values. I just think she is growing up and frankly I think her performances was very respectful. I can not hardly wait until her entire CD has been released. I just love this young lady! You go Miss Jordin Sparks!!!

Jordin did a great job performing on Idol last night! She could use a little more work, but this was just her first time really performing with choreography! I know that she can only get better with time and practice! Why are people so against change? She is 21 now, not 17 like she was when she won Idol and she has grown up, so ya she is going to sing and perform more mature songs and dress accordingly. I think a lot of people are so attracted to stability that when something changes they freak out and automatically dislike it just because it is different instead of just giving it a chance. I think some people don’t dislike the actual performance, they dislike the idea of change and they can’t distinguish those emotions, and therefore wrongfully dismiss her and her performance. Anyways, I hope Jordin continues to grow and has great success in her career! :)

@candace pritikin: I completely agree!!!!!!!!!! She was better before……. I am a 13 year old and I think that!!!!!!!!!! Go back to normal Jordan!!!!!!!!!!!!

@candace pritikin: You’re making it seem as if she’s another Miley Cyrus or Britney Spears. My good God, she’s OLDER. She wasn’t wearing hoochie clothing at all. She was slightly dancing and if you actually keep up with ALL her music, even back in Idol, she has progressively gotten to this stage. I would have questioned her if she was doing this when she was a teenager, but she’s not one anymore. There is NOTHING wrong with loving one’s self. This is why so many artists–and people in general–don’t want to affiliate themselves with any sort of religion or faith in public, because it’s people like you that quickly jump to judge and say how “unChristian” they are. Jordin is a good person. She isn’t hurting anyone or sending a “wrong” message. Listen to the lyrics. Don’t look at her, just go online and read her lyrics. Do they say anywhere on there to become sleezy or a prostitute or to sleep around and commit sin??? No, they’re words of confidence, so back up and quit with the judgments. HOW is she hurting you??

“It ain’t easy walkin’ in stilettos, But somebody gotta do it” ruins the entire song. Really? Being a woman means walking around in stilettos? So what happens when a woman doesn’t wear stilettos? Is she less of a woman?

I didn’t like the performance on American Idol with her writhing around in barely any clothing at all, because, to me, it seemed like she sold out to the idea perpetuated by the media that a woman cannot be successful unless she sells her body. Skimpy clothes, high heels, perfect figure, suggestive dance moves. I just wanted to take her hand and tell her “You don’t need to act sexy to be famous, girl. Your fans love you without you having to act like all the other skimpy women in the music industry.”

Just look at Adele. That woman can sit in a chair her entire video, fully clothed, and it’s a smash hit. Jordin doesn’t need to be sexy to be a great artist, and being sexy does not make her more of a woman. It does not make her more grown-up or more mature, either. It does not show that she is “growing as an artist” either. All it shows is that she has bought into the lies that tell women they have to sell their bodies to be successful.
