Jane Says: ‘I’m Not Allowed To Say’ Anything About Gwen Stefani

jane_tony.jpgFrom this week’s Time Out New York:

TONY: That is so Jane. Do you miss print?
Jane Pratt: No, but I can’t talk about it.

TONY: Because you’re starting a new magazine with Gwen Stefani?
Pratt: I’m not allowed to say! You can speculate if you want. I feel like I am working in print now.

TONY: Do people still think you’re at Jane?
Pratt: That’s the weirdest thing! Yeah. I constantly have girls saying to me, “Oh, you’re Jane from Jane.” It’s funny. My name is still on the masthead as founding editor.

TONY: Do you ever read it these days?
Pratt: I pick it up. There hasn’t been any issue that I haven’t at least looked at. When I wasn’t at Sassy anymore, that was really clear-cut. I didn’t read it: I didn’t want to support it in any way. This is more confusing. I want Jane to do well. It has my name on it.

Pratt’s Sirius show airs Friday.
