JET Magazine Responds to Fantasia Instagram Comments
Fantasia can’t seem to win past American Idol.
The soulful singer was highly upset when JET Magazine published some photos of her that she wasn’t to fond of. She then took to her instagram account to vent.
“This saddens Me!!! It is clear that thisÂ pictureÂ is 10 Years Old and JETÂ MagazineÂ puts it on the Cover!! After I send them the NEW LOOK AND DIRECTION. . SAD!!! I WANT A PUBLIC APOLOGY FROM JET.”
The Editor In Chief for JET Magazine, Mitzi Miller responded to Fantasia’s instagram episode with the following statement:
“JETÂ magazineÂ is honored to have Fantasia grace the cover of its March issue. It is unfortunate that Fantasia is displeased with theÂ cover selection, however JET stands by its decision. 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.”
Apparently, JET felt the photos Fantasia and her team sent over were not befitting for the cover.
