If Fantasia Barrino wanted a better picture of herself on the cover of JET Magazine, she should”ve given the magazine better pictures … this according to JET magazine.
JET is defending its decision to use a 10 year old photo of Fantasia on the cover of this month”s mag … after Barrino TRASHED the cover on social media this week.
In her social media rant, Barrino says she”s trying to separate herself from her old image and create a new look for herself … and expected JET to work with her. After seeing the cover, Fantasia felt deceived …and demanded a public apology.
But a rep for JET tells our sources the mag has NOTHING to apologize for … claiming the photo it used was deemed “most appropriate for JET”s brand and reflective of the cover story sentiment. “
The rep says Fantasia”s rep had sent over a series of pics she had hoped the mag would use, but editors felt Barrino”s face was too obstructed and didn”t meet the standards of a JET cover.
JET magazine says despite Fantasia”s comments, it has no hard feelings toward the singer … adding, “JET continues to root for Fantasia”s success and encourages her fans to pick up the new issue.”
