Jordin started 'Idol' run with LIES

Tbdjordan053107 As if the fact that many American Idol fans just plain don’t like winner Jordin Sparks wasn't enough, now we can rip on her for being a liar, too.

Star magazine reports the singer witnessed false when she filled out her bio with a “no” when asked if she ever had formal training. It’s a surprise to Melissa Black, who says she was Sparks’ old vocal coach.

“Jordin was just 14 years old when she studied with me in 2004,” Black told the magazine. “Her mom, Jodi Sparks, and her grandmother, Pam Wiedmann — who acts as her manager — found me on the Internet. We were together for nine months of intense vocal work, with Jordin taking one 30-minute class a week at $25 per class … I knew she wouldn’t take long to perfect her craft because she was so good.”

Nine months sure sounds like a “yes” to us.
