IN THE HEIGHTS star Jordin Sparks is set to launch her debut fragrance this month. It will be called "Because of You."
The 2007 American Idol winner explained to WWD: "When I was starting this project, I really wanted it to be affordable. I looked at some other celebrity fragrances, and they were like $80. Even now, I look at a fragrance that's $80, and I can't bring myself to spend that much. In this economy especially, my fans deserve a high-quality, reasonably priced scent."
Sparks also tweeted about the launch stating: "Im really excited 4 my perfume! Ive always loved fragrances & next week it will be out 4 everyone to try! YAY! All #becauseofyou guys. And the perfume is called #becauseofyou, because you guys mean the world to me! :). (sic)"
