Is Jordin Sparks fat?

An activist named Meme Rogers is the President of a group called “National Action Against Obesity”. The group’s website features a banner emblazoned with the phrase, ““Let’s finally recognize obesity as abuse—abuse of our children, abuse of ourselves—and together take action.”

Rogers has drawn national attention for calling attention to American Idol’s Jordin Sparks weight. She issued a statement stating that Sparks did not look healthy and that she saw health problems such as diabetes or high cholesterol in the 17 year old’s future.

The blogsphere has reacted with ire. But what do you think? Is Jordin really obese and unhealthy? Is she just not America’s version of a size 2 floating around the stage?
