Jordin Sparks and Raven Symone: How Young Hollywood is Losing Weight

Because social networking sites are, at their core, platforms for chicks to take pictures of themselves in the bathroom, Jordin Sparks Tweeted a picture of herself in her bikini.

The American Idol alum recently lost thirty pounds, giving herself the confidence to pose the revealing photo along with the tweet:
“I don’t know why but my bathing suit reminds me of fruity pebbles :)”

Sparks used to be a plus size model, but after touring with the Jonas Brothers, dropped the weight. Her secret: good old-fashioned exercise.

“Any time I find time — or I’m not sleeping — [my trainer]’s like, ‘Let’s work out, let’s do something.’ I’m like, ‘no,’ but he gets my butt up and I’ve got to do it," Jordan said.

Just goes to show you that no matter what trendy diet is on the radar this week, you can escape having to the exercise. Unless maybe you’re Sarah Silverman, who recently joked with Hollyscoop:

“I do a lot of cocaine for my weight. I eat a lot of Sweet Tarts in the morning and then at night nothing except for cocaine and fruit.”

Another young star who recently debuted a much slimmer figure? Raven Symoné, aka “the little kid that wasn’t Rudy” on The Cosby Show.
At the 18th Annual Race to Erase MS event on Friday, Symoné walked down the catwalk, showing off her thinned-down frame. She is starring in a new ABC Family sitcom, State of Georgia.

Symoné remains humble about her weight loss, saying, “Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me,” she says. “I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”
