Jordin Sparks has lost weight and gotten a new toy to boot - a tattoo.
"New tat on my rib cage...'Respira' I love it. :)" the 21-year-old singer tweeted, according to US Weekly. " 'Respira' = Breathe. It's for my time on ITH, the people I met there & a reminder to take a moment when things get crazy. <3."
The former "American Idol" contestant portrayed Nina Rosario in the Tony Award-winning show "In The Heights" last fall. Following an New York bodega store owner Usnavy after he wins the lottery, the show's a mixture of hip-hop, salsa and reggaeton and Sparks played his love interest.
