Dakota Fanning, a 17-year-old, on the cover?! This is PROOF that Cosmo is Marketing to Teens!!
Written by Nicole | January 25, 2012
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

December 2011– Adele, 23
January 2012– Scarlett Johanssen, 27
DAKOTA FANNING AND SELENA GOMEZ POSING ON COSMO TRULY WILL BE THE CATALYST FOR THIS SOCIAL REVOLUTION TO FORCE COSMO TO BE SOLD IN A NONTRANSPARENT WRAPPER. LET’S SELL THIS MAGAZINE TO ADULTS ONLY SO WE CAN TO PROTECT KIDS FROM PORN TIPS.
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!!
