Aidin Vaziri |While you’re sitting on the couch stuffing your face with cupcakes, Jordin Sparks is out on the front lines of the summer touring season. To get the word out on her second album, “Battlefield,” the sixth-season “American Idol” champ is supporting the Jonas Brothers across the United States, which means facing hysterical tweens, eardrum-shattering shrieks and a galaxy of personal rumors everywhere she goes. Fortunately, the bubbly 19-year-old Arizona native is taking it all in stride as her latest single, “Battlefield,” climbs the charts.
Q: How are your ears holding up?
A: I just can’t believe how their fans scream all four hours straight. From the time the doors open to the time when the boys get off stage, they are just screaming their heads off. It’s awesome because I walk out there and they’re screaming.
Q: How mad are their fans that you’re dating Nick?
A: I actually tried to start that rumor earlier and it didn’t work.
Q: We really shouldn’t even joke about it.
A: The cool thing is their fans aren’t mad at me in that sort of way. It’s a really cool vibe that I have with the boys. We’ve been friends for the past two years. It’s strictly platonic. I hope everybody knows that. It’s cool because it could have definitely gone the other way. They could have hated me and not wanted to tour with me.
