  • According to several sources, “Jet Magazine” has treated Fantasia Barrino like a runway within the last week: they landed jokes all over her!

    “Jet” used an old image of her to put on their cover instead of the one that Barrino’s camp provided. The R&B Songstress took to social media to vent her frustrations: ‘This saddens Me!!! It is clear that this picture is 10 Years Old and JET Magazine puts it on the Cover!! After I send them the NEW LOOK AND DIRECTION. . SAD!!! I WANT A PUBLIC APOLOGY FROM JET. Now im not sure if the interview is correct. SEE!! America they and use me as they crash Dummy BUT NO MORE. IF I DONT STAND FOR SOMETHING ILL FALL FOR ANYTHING.’ “  

    Welp we guess that about sums up how she was feeling about the situation. And with good reason. Have you ever seen a picture of yourself on someone’s FB that you didn’t approve or worse one that you never really liked and you wanted them to take it down but they wouldn’t for whatever reason? Imagine if millions of people had the potential to see that particular picture? You see where we’re going with this? If there is something that reflects you and you don’t have the right to do something to fix it in to a way that is more pleasing to you and that will genuinely make you feel better about how you are being represented, you are going to feel some sort of justifiable upset toward all involved in the situation. It’s called being human.

    Now, enter  Mitzi MillerJET’s editor-in-chief,  who issued a statement defending Jet’s right to use the 10 year old picture for its cover:

    JET magazine is honored to have Fantasia grace the cover of its March issue,” her statement began. “It is unfortunate that Fantasia is displeased with the cover selection, however JET stands by its decision,” said Miller. “As standard editorial practice, JET consulted with Fantasia’s team, but reserves the right to select the image we deem as most appropriate for JET’s brand and reflective of the cover story sentiment. “JET continues to root for Fantasia’s success and encourages her fans to pick up the new issue.”

    Now while that comment was a bit snide to say the least, you would think the social drama between the two entities would have left it right there.  But if you thought that you would indeed be wrong.

    1. Ms. Mitzi needs to learn some manners. Fantasia should not have taken the conflict public, and Ms. Edumacated should have taken the high road. If she is a professional she certainly did not display it in this situation. Where is the adult here?

    2. Be grateful you are on the cover….. there was a time you would not have blessed to be on JET magazine….. be grateful for your blessings …

      Also, if you did not agree with the Jet’s decision to put that particular picture of you on the cover then you should have called the owner instead of “airing” out your disagreements in public.

    3. Ms Miller should be let go. She is giving Jet magazine a bad name. That magazine has been in for ever and I am a product of the 50′s. You higher ups had better take a look at this. How many more people has her mouth trashed. Fantasia went back to school and I commend those in society that work towards doing the best and being the best they can be. Get rid of that woman.
