Jade seemed to be having no trouble forgetting her recent spurn, after she lost out on the opportunity to play the Disney princess Jasmine.
She appeared to make a thinly veiled dig after losing out on her 'dream' role when she shared a Instagram post on Saturday when Disney announced the final cast list.
In the sultry snap, the Shout Out To My Ex hitmaker posed with a pistol, with a message attached to it which was emblazoned with the phrase 'over it'.

Will Smith, 48, who had already been named as taking on the role of the Genie, has now been confirmed along with newcomer Mena Massoud who will play Aladdin.
The casting was announced at Disney's D23 Expo in California on Saturday.
British star Naomi is best known for her role in the recent Power Rangers reboot.

Meanwhile, Egyption-born, Canada-bred Mena is set to star in the upcoming Jack Ryan television series.
It was reported several days ago that Ritchie was struggling to find a lead actor for the film.
Both Riz Ahmed and Dev Patel are understood to have been considered but Disney was more keen on casting an unknown actor.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, over 2000 actors and actresses read for the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine.
It seemed finding a male lead who can act and sing, in his 20s, was difficult especially as the studio needed someone of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent.
