For me, Jet Magazine will be remembered as the a source and connection to the black community. Jet Magazine was known to highlight the aspects of black life that other magazines ignored. Today marks the end of an era. The LAST print issue of the iconic Jet Magazine hits the news stands today. The publication, which debuted on November 1, 1951 will continue as on online magazine.
Throughout the years, Jet Magazine has been a staple in the African American community. As a source of news and entertainment, the weekly magazine celebrated the accomplishments, achievements, and beauty of black people. For nearly 63 years, the magazine has featured the best and the brightest in our community. To celebrate the legendary publication, I decided to feature some of my favorite covers.
What will you miss the most about the the print edition of Jet Maazine?
Reel SistaHalle Berry is on the May 2009 issue of Harper’s Bazaar Magazine:
In the magazine, Berry talks about being a mother and her post-baby body:
“Having a baby takes so much from you. It’s the most glorious thing you’ll ever do, but the aftermath is not so glorious! So now I’m having to exercise, eat a little bit differently, take a lot more vitamins. “
“I used to work a lot because I had nothing better to do. What I’ve learned, especially by having a baby, is that you can’t bring that stuff home anymore. For example, I was alone filming ‘Monster’s Ball.’ I was married to someone else, and he wasn’t really around much. Thank God that was only a 20-day shoot.”
Berry’s ever changing look is interesting…but she is a true reel sista, regardless. Gotta love her. Berry is currently filming the psychological thriller “Frankie and Alice”
