Jordin Sparks Talks Album Delays & Frustrations

jordinsp24

It’s been almost five years since Jordin Sparks has released an album and the frustration has gotten to the starlet. During a recent interview with Huff Post Live, Sparks revealed that she has completed a full album, but she still hasn’t been able to release it.

When asked how long does it take to release an album, Sparks responded, “Thank you! Ask them,” and motioned off-screen to some unidentified people. “How long does it take?”

She even hinted at possibly releasing her music independently.

“I think I have a really amazing door that just opened up with hopefully being able to get an album out working with a person I really trust, and getting it out on my own,”

Though understandably frustrated, Sparks did keep her composure and offered some kind words about her label, RCA.

“They’ve done so many amazing things for me, so I don’t want this to come off like, I hate them, because I don’t,” she said. “It’s just — I’m a little bit frustrated because I really want to put this music out for my fans, and it’s really good.”

Jordin Sparks Sports BIG Sparkler on Ring Finger

2013 MTV Video Music Awards - Arrivals

 

Jason Derulo just released his songMarry Me,” a ballad proclaiming his love and asking that someone special to be his wife.

Since his song “Other Side” was rumored to be inspired by girlfriend Jordin Sparks, the internet is buzzing and wondering if this new song is the singer’s way of proposing to Sparks.

To add fuel to the marriage proposal fire, Sparks was spotted wearing a HUGE sparkly new ring, on her ring finger at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday.

Sparks has not mentioned her new sparkler, but she did retweet a story posted by MTV, which addresses the possibility that the song could be a marriage proposal for the “I Am Woman” singer.

Both Sparks and Derulo have mentioned marriage (to each other of course) in the past, so it would not be surprising if the two did end up down the aisle.
