Whitney Houston & Jordin Sparks Speak On Their New Movie “Sparkle”


Jordin Sparks, Whitney Houston, Cee-Lo, Derek Luke and many others will be starring in the 2012 remake of the 1963 Sparkle movie. The young 22 year old singer only had great things to say about the legendary singer Whitney Houston. Here’s what she told People Mag:

She was so cool and very motherly toward me. If I ever looked like I needed something, here she came saying ‘Are you okay?’ ”

“I sang her songs into a hairbrush when I was little. Now she’s acting as my mom and scolding me. It was a dream come true.”

Whitney, who relives her drug addiction in the movie, talks how exciting it was to work on the movie:

“Part of the fun of making this movie is definitely the costumes and the hairstyles. The movie is set in 1963, and we had a great wardrobe, hair and makeup person and I loved wearing the outfits.”

The movie is in theaters August 10th.
