Jordin Sparks to Play Marquee on July 1... But, Seriously, Who Is Going to Devirginize Her?

Jordin Sparks is playing the Marquee Theatre in Tempe on July 1 as part of a national tour that'll take the Glendale native to 35 cities across the country.

Sparks, the 20-year-old 2007 American Idol winner, is also slated to make Broadway debut in the 2008 Tony and Grammy Award-winning Best Musical, In The Heights, this summer.

The real question, though, is when is Ms. Sparks finally going to take that purity ring off? Craig Outhier handicaps the odds of her various prospective suitors in an article in this week's print issue. Check it out here.

Also, if you're Jordin Sparks dad, former NFL DB Phillippi Sparks, we'd hate for you to come find us at the College Times office, 2211 South 48th Street in Tempe, and kick our asses. However, if you were looking for someone's ass to kick as a result of that article, you should definitely drive from Glendale to 2211 South 48th Street in Tempe, and not anywhere in downtown Phoenix.
