American Idol season 3 winner, Fantasia, is back in the news. This time, she’s really really mad at JET magazine for using a TEN YEAR OLD PHOTO for their cover. Via TMZ:
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.
OMG. On February 20, Fantasia uploaded this photo plea Instagram. She asked her fans to retweet:
More from TMZ:
But a rep for JET tells TMZ 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.”
Here are the photos JET rejected:
