Fantasia is not too happy with Jet Magazine right now. A teaser of her upcoming Jet cover made its way to the internet with quotes about the R&B singer enjoying the single life. Turns out that the cover the magazine decided to publish had not been approved by Fantasia. Taking to Twitter and Instagram, Fantasia commented:
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.
Image and branding are important, especially as a career person and a celebrity and she has the right to be concerned about how she is being portrayed. She joins a list of other celebrities that have spoken out against magazines to protect their image, including Kanye West and Mary J. Blige.
Fantasia has something positive to look forward to and be proud of, the video for her lead single “Lose to Win” off of her new album “The Side Effects of You” will be out soon. And you know what they say: There’s no such thing as bad publicity.
