Jordin Sparks sat down with Kerry Washington for a mini interview for On-Air with Ryan Seacrest backstage at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards.
The pair chuckled at their love for Disney songs and it wasn’t long before Sparks asked the Scandal song to sing song with her.
And even though Sparks is a recording artist, Washington held her won during their mini rendition of Aladdin’s “A Whole New World.”
“I really love her work,” Sparks said. “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!'”

Miley Cyrus covers the 65th issue of Notion magazine; a British fashion and lifestyle publication.
Although the cover has not been officially revealed, some of Cyrus’ interview has already hit the web. Notion’s Michael Cragg chatted with Miley about public misconceptions, why she hasn’t dropped her surname and why she isn’t the ratchet girl people think she is.
The magazine hinted via their Facebook page that the issue would be available (or maybe the cover would be revealed) on August 29.
On changing her name:
“I was thinking about dropping the Cyrus and just being Miley, but there’s something powerful about the fact that my name now is like a household name.”
On not being the ratchet Caucasian girl people paint her to be:
“People have this misconception of me that I’m just one of these kids on TV and that now I go off and party and I’m just this ratchet white girl, and I’m not,” she tells Notion. “I work really really hard, I’m just in a different environment. I’m young and living and in LA which is everyone’s dream, you know.”
The pair were cordially invited to hobnob at the next Playboy mansion party. On April 13, the magazine tweeted the open invitation to the actresses, alongside a promotional shot (above) from the film.
The invite could be a set-up to try and get the ladies to pose for the magazine, but that remains to be seen. The Disney darlings did not respond to the invite, and we doubt they ever will.
