Dakota Fanning, a 17-year-old, on the cover?! This is PROOF that Cosmo is Marketing to Teens!!

    This is truly shocking. Dakota Fanning, who was only 17 at the time of the modeling shoot, is featured on the February cover of Cosmo.

    Her fans are overwhelmingly in the tween set…she is positioned as a role model to them from her roles in Charlotte’s Web to the Twilight movies. That’s proof enough that Cosmo is marketing to teens, but there’s more! Selena Gomez, 19, also is going to be featured on the cover in the coming months. Her fans? Tweens. Seriously, how many adults care about the star of the Wizards of Waverly Place and Ramona and Beezus?!

    Look at the above cover, with inappropriate headlines about sex surrounding an underage girl. If you open the issue, you’ll see an entire new look with eye-popping colors, larger (more “fun”) fonts, and punchy images. In my last video, I mentioned Kate White’s editorial letter in which she explained that she wanted a “fresh redesign” for Cosmo (which features BRIGHT COLORS! KID FONTS!), and I said that Cosmo is actively marketing to underage girls.

    Fanning herself is an underage girl! Meanwhile, Gomez’s long running Disney show ends this week. Her millions of young fans will miss her, because the show they grew up with is now over. So what do they do? Pick up the Cosmo issue featuring Selena, of course!

    The photos below are outtakes from Selena’s cover shoot. When these issues hits newsstands, it will be the ULTIMATE PROOF THAT COSMO IS ACTIVELY MARKETING TO TEENS.

    Fanning (17) and Gomez (19) will be the youngest women Cosmo has featured on the cover in over three years. Here are the past year’s cover celebrities and their ages:

    January 2011– Ashley Greene, 24

    February 2011– Mila Kunis, 28

    March 2011– Lea Michele, 25

    April 2011– Hayley Williams, 23

    May 2011– Olivia Wilde, 27

    June 2011– Cameron Diaz, 39

    July 2011– Rihanna, 23

    August 2011– Kim K, 31

    September 2011– Dianna Agron, 25

    October 2011– Minka Kelly, 31

    November 2011– Nicki Minaj, 29

    December 2011– Adele, 23

    January 2012– Scarlett Johanssen, 27


    It is heartbreaking that young girls are going to appear on the cover, yet it will be the breaking point we need in order to validate our point that Cosmo is marketing to minors. God Bless, and keep praying!

    “I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked of their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.” Isaiah 13:11

    Join me and be ruthless and use God’s power behind us to stop their wickedness from destroying millions of girls!!!

    Selena, are you listening? You even posted the scripture “Isaiah 1:18” on your twitter page just two months ago!!

    1. OH MY GOODNESS! i was on (a christian review site)
      i saw a podcast titled “confronting cosmo” so i thought i’d listen and recommend it to nicole….
      AND IT WAS HER!!!! 😀
      coolio, huh 😛

    2. It’s just an interview. It doesn’t mean it’s “proof” that they’re aiming underage girls. The whole interview was talking about her upcoming movies and life on her own. She didn’t have to model for them if she didn’t want to. She thought it was a good idea obviously. Very few of her roles have been childrens movies. She’s always done mature, darker roles instead of being the cutesy child star Hollywood is used to. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t have morals or believes women should do sexual things to get men to love them (the magazine doesn’t say that either. They’re tips for people in relationships. Not every guy is in a relationship just for the sex). She’s just modeling.
