Jordin Sparks by Lester Cohen/ Jordin Sparks by Lester Cohen/

Freshly crowned (and audibly hoarse, the poor thing) American Idol Jordin Sparks says she has the best-possible support system in place to contend with the pressures that fame, especially at such a young age, can bring. On the topic of the biz's "ideal image" concepts, she said during a Friday conference call, "That 'super-thin' stuff, Hollywood needs to get over it." As for expectations to be seen on the party scene, the 17-year-old said, "I've got a really good family around me, and I'm pretty sure they'll keep me grounded. They're always like, 'Don't let it go to your head, Jordin,' and I'm like, 'OK!' As long as I've got them with me, I'll be OK."

On a very separate topic, Jordin shared this scary notion: runner-up Blake Lewis has tried to teach her how to {wait for it} beatbox. "But I'm really horrible at it," she admitted, laughing. "I entertain myself by trying to do it, but I can't do it!"
