Director John Singleton also credited Fatima Robinson for contributing to the birth of Janet Jackson's iconic braids for the 1993 film Poetic Justice. In an interview with writer Lathleen Ade-Brown for ESSENCE John said: "That was a collaboration between myself, Janet, [dance choreographer] Fatima Robinson and a dancer named Josie Harris. Josie had the braids in Michael Jackson’s “Remember the Time” video, which I directed. I brought her and Fatima and a couple of other dancers over to hang out with Janet and they all became friends. I said, "Why don’t we try and do Janet’s hair like Josie’s hair?" We got the hairstyle from Harlem and just put it in a West Coast movie.""
