Raven Covers JET Magazine

Raven Covers JET MagazineActress/singer Raven-Symone features in the latest issue of JET magazine. As well as talking about her forthcoming album, she spoke about being proud of her ‘voluptuous’ shape:

‘”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.’”

It’s always good to see artists going against what has, sadly, become the industry’s norm – looks over talent. Random tidbit: Irrespective of how hard I try, I can’t seem to shake the ‘Disney’ association with Raven; the odd look she has on her face doesn’t really help matters.

Any thoughts?

    Hey! Just wanted to let you know that Raven has canceled her Pajama Party tour. 🙂

    Wow, I can’t believe she is canceling her tour! She seems to have been working with a lot of top producers for her new album. I hope she has success. I’m going to listen to that sampler now.

    It’s nice to see a female artist who won’t take it all off. S*** is okay, though.

    Oh lawd, I just listened to the sample. It is SOOOOOOO under produced. I hope those are demos or else she is in trouble.
