Teen mag editors hit out at Jamie Lynn Spears’ surprise pregnancyDecember 23rd, 2007 - 12:25 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Dec 23(ANI): Jamie Lynn Spears’ pregnancy has left teen magazine editors grappling with shock. Some of them are certainly reconsidering their decision to put her on the cover page of their mag.
“I was considering her for an upcoming cover. But with this news, Id have to rethink that, ” Usmagazine.com quoted the CosmoGIRL! Editor-in-Chief Susan Schulz, as saying.
Although she praises the 16-year-old for taking responsibility, Schulz added, “I dont feel like I can put her on the cover right now because, as you can imagine, girls are disappointed in Jamie Lynn.”. Schulz said she doesnt expect teen girls to follow in Lynns footsteps. “Girls arent going to go out and get pregnant because Jamie Lynn did, quite the opposite,” she said.
However, Ann Shoket, Editor-in-Chief of Seventeen has a different take on the issue. She says we would certainly consider putting Jamie Lynn on the cover, but only after the Zoey 101 star overcomes this moment and goes on to have a career that the readers can look up to.
“Getting pregnant at 16 is not something we’re encouraging,” Shoket added. (ANI)
