Raven on Jet

In the newest issue of Jet, Raven-Symoné reveals why she won’t change for fame:

‘”I have to stay true to who I am’, says Disney star Raven-Symoné, 22, regarding her new self-titled CD, which is slated for release April 29. ‘I am not going to sing about sex, drugs and violence, that’s just not who I am’, she continues. As she prepares for the CD’s release and a 55-city Pajama Party concert tour, the confident and talented entertainer hopes this project will fill a void in today’s music. We need some music that will open people’s minds up and give them other things to think about other than the same things we have been giving them for a while. Maybe my album can do that.’

While the 5-foot-2-inch singer-actress stays true to her music, she’s also staying true to her image by being comfortable with her size. ‘When I look in the mirror and see how voluptuously fabulous I am, I can’t even worry about it. I am just fabulous.'”

Kudos for Raven for taking a stand. It’s refreshing to see a young artist trying to be on the up and up. Now, we’ll have to wait to see how that translate into record sales. She might change her tune real quick if she comes up dry.

Thanks Jeanine

    @ SMOKEY I AGREE…I DON’T KNOW THE LAST TIME JET WAS PICKED UP BY ME. PROBABLY IN THE EARLY 1990’s OFF OF SOMEONE’S COFFEE TABLE.

    I LOVE HER…AND I AM HAPPY THAT SHE SAID THIS. CUTE TITLE FOR THE TOUR!

    Considering that she’s worth $400 million. I highly doubt that she is close to broke and need to change her image to sell CD’s.

  • Somer

    This is a great example of how being over weight makes you look older. She does not look 22yr old, more like 34. Nia long and Gabby look younger.

    rememeber the olivia days and what eva her name was on mr cooper

  • lynwood

    She’s pretty, but that’s not an attractive picture of her. Too much weave.

  • num1dominicano

    Raven is pretty and voluptous….but she got a high waist or square hips or sumn’ about her shape not quite right…

  • Chelle

    She needs to put on some pants

  • mojojojo195

    THAT WOMAN RIGHT THERE IS WORTH 400MILLION+

  • SweetDiva

    “Considering that she’s worth $400 million. I highly doubt that she is close to broke and need to change her image to sell CD’s.”

    Exactly – why switch up the formula now? It’ll be a long time before we see her on When the Checks Stop Coming in?

  • Lola

    I thought her pajama tour was postponed? Anywho, I actually like her music that I’ve heard so far. Another blog has snippets of it, and it sounds good. I like Raven and her confidence. I don’t think this is cute cover for her though…her face looks funny.

  • *starlight*

    i can honestly say am very proud of her she came a long way my daughters love her so much. I cant even count how many child stars from back in the day made it to wear she is. keep up the good work!!!

  • He's Presidential

    I still read JET… I think Raven is doing good things by not comprising herself.

  • Whatchaknoaboutdat?

    She looks good from the neck down… and those are real cute shoes….

    She needs to work on that smile..she looks like the Joker from Batman.

  • I cant say...

    cant stand that goofy awkward smirk- Im sure there were better proofs for this cover… That aside, Raven has a built in following amongst the beeny boppers, she doesnt need to switch it up cause she carved out her market segment and she’d be a fool to try and target an entirely new demographic than the one she currently has uncontested… She aint vying with Bey, Rhi, Fanny or none of these other pop artist. Too, while the Disney chics she does contend with drop off and get swallowed up in going after pop success {britney, christina,lindsay, miley,jessica, mary-kate & ashley etc.} these girls are hott for a minute and then they become doped out, sexxed up, knocked up, divorcee basket cases, Raven is staying right where she is, where the checks are coming in!! She is only 22 and a selfmade brand- slow and steady wins the race- she’ll outlast all these washed up broads and her $$ is long already!!
