UPDATE: JET magazine has officially responded to Fantasia’s angry outburst over the editor’s choice for a cover photo for the latest issue.
Statement from Mitzi Miller, Editor in Chief, JET (Friday, February 22, 2013):
“JET magazine is honored to have Fantasia grace the cover of its March issue.
It is unfortunate that Fantasia is displeased with the cover selection, however JET stands by its decision.
