Fantasia Goes Back To School… To Learn How To Read!

| Filed under: American IdolFantasia


American Idol songstress Fantasia Barrino is making the smart decision to return to school!

Wanting to set a good example for her 7-year-old daughter and 15-year-old brother, 'Tasia is planning on earning her degree after dropping out of high school in the 9th grade over a decade ago.

The former Idol winner explained further, "I've been talking about it for so long, I have a lot of young people who look up to me… It's something that I really need to do and that I want to do."

We're not sure if Fantasia Barrino has made herself out to be the ideal role model, but this is a step in the right direction.

We for sure wouldn't want to relive those awkward high school years!

    the first way to start being a role model would be to stop dressing like a back alley whore.

  24. 24

    Re: harrybalsac – Hood Rats-little girl is cute but momma's got some skanky tats goning on!Ughhhhh

  25. 25

    those tatoos on her leg are not cute.

    buddy, she was in high school past the 9th grade. she may not have done much of nothing, but she was older than a 9th grader is, and still in highschool. I know, cos I have the yearbook to prove it.

  31. 31

    ghetto fab hahahaaaa

  32. 32

    Awk! Good 4 her though.

  33. 33

  35. 35

    "TOO HOT"????? Are you fucking gakked again, Perez?

  36. 36

    She isn't going to be reliving anything, lmao! So dramatic, Perez! You don't literally go back to HS, she just takes some classes here and there and most people do it at home.

  37. MP says – reply to this


    I don't understand the allure of her. I think she's so nasty and certainly not a role model for anyone. She should be commended for going back to school though, education is never a bad decision.

  38. Eddie says – reply to this


    Goooo Fantasia!!

  39. 39

    No point, she's still an idiot.

  40. Sonas says – reply to this


    It should be illegal for ugly people to wear skimpy outfits /: Kid's cute though.

  41. 41

    Put down the horns..you are not metal.

  42. 42

    She needs an education to provide for her kid since her 5 mins are up.

  43. 43

    she looks like a damn monster. and nice tattoos your real cool, she probably used her leg as a picture book for her daughter.

  44. 44

    Damn it looks like fantasia had her lips stretched the fuck out.. it's starting to resemble lg's va-jayjay.

  45. 45

    She was never a role model for anyone that I can tell. She just happened to be in the right place at the right time and got pimped out by the AI judges. She's pure ghetto skank and always will be.

  46. 46


    FUGLY!!! FUGLY!!! FUGLY!!!

    way to go girl! don't quit your dayjob though… :)

    Perez- ENOUGH ALREADY!! You couldnt find a picture from this years grammys to post? There are wonderful pictures on WireImage and Getty. Wonder why you used last years pic.

    She knows how to read Dumb dumb. She had trouble reading - how many times do you have to be corrected?

    Please show her some respect - she is one of the best performers out there today- where were you last week when she tore off the roof at Patti LaBelle's tribute.

    Missing in action again.

    If you go to you tube and put in Fantasia Lady Marmalade and watch her perform - then maybe you will stop dissing her.

    Give the girl a break -

  50. dal says – reply to this


    I am proud of you Fantasia.

    ON Broadway and making the haters speechless at 22 years old, bringing people to their feet at every performance.

    Thats what is wrong with people today- you can't get past the looks to see real talent.

    How sad some of you are.

  51. 51

    She is the epitome of class, dignity, prestige and beauty. Ghetto trash at it's finest folks!

  52. 52

    nice pic… mom and daughter with gang signs………………….loser

  53. 53

    Re: LG sez BOYCOTT BALE! – Lol ok vagina… There you retard.. I'm sure your face resembles an old vagina…

  54. 54

    A freakin men!!
    Education is never a bad idea.
    Next if she could stop dressing like a $5 dollar hooker around her daughter, and stop marking up her body with crappy tats.

  55. 55

    Talk about GHETTO….the hair, the dress, the bag, the tattoos on her leg. Please put this up on hot ghetto mess.

  56. 56

    Isn't that the daughter she had with some random guy? Pure disgusting ghetto trash

  57. 57

    I used to like her…but that ghetto gang chick trashy look has GOT to go. She needs to get her hair did and teach her little one to smile nice for the camera!…Oh, and stop with the f****** tattoos already!

  58. 58

    awww., that is sooo good for her!!
    get dat shyt gurl!!
    after she notice her career not doiin good iguess

  59. 59

    You dumbass . . . she's not going BACK to school in a school setting. She's probably going to just get her GED.

  60. 60

    Ewwww she is so nasty looking.

  61. 61

    umm who even listens to her anymore??
    who the fuck cares about her now..

  62. 62

    Typical, very typical, for her kind? She needs to be able to read so she can fill out those Welfare Requests on her own? Did's yall wants fries wit dat burger?

  63. 63

    P.s. Nice leg tats (lol) just kidding?

  64. 64

    I cant believe she even won AI. She is pure trash!

  65. 65

    Is that little retarded looking sludge next to her a child?

  66. 66

    Mmmm and this are news because????
    She needs to go to charm school and learn a bit about class and how to look ladylike… she is sooo awful!

  67. 67

    Hey PErez you should sign at her same school… you still have lots of ERRORS!!!

  68. 68

    it's good that she's going back to school, but what fans is she talking about? she has none! and what's with the tattoo's going up her legs, does she realize how nasty that looks? she's looks fucking ghetto. ick. so does her kid.

  69. 69

    hella respect for her for that. that's sacrifice and maturity at its finest.

  70. 70

    I don't follow American Idol but this is what I gather. If you take off your clothes you Can't be an Idol but if you quit school you Can be an idol. Low educational standards for a so-called American Idol, I would say. Lets judge the morals of other and forget about what's giving to them (like an education).

  71. 71

    Maybe she should wear a longer dress >.> Looking like a hoochie isn't a terrific example to set either.

  72. crong says – reply to this


    shiteous fuckin ugly gap toothed hep ridden negress out walking the niglet

  73. 73

    Those tattoos on her leg make her look like she has varicose veins

  74. 74

    Re: LG sez BOYCOTT BALE! – OMG I love the Canterbury Tales!

  75. 75

    What kind of dumb-ass can't graduate from high school?

  76. 76

    What a mess…Super Ghetto with all the leg tat's and the hoochie wig and the nasty plastic mini dress.

  77. 77

    You relive those awkward high school years every day you wake up, pull on those bunny slippers and try and work this blog.

  78. 78

    Nice, teaching her little ghetto rat to be a ghetto gang ho just like mama.

  79. tetzy says – reply to this


    The obama's have never looked classier.

  80. binka says – reply to this


    what the hell! I mean she was never a very attractive women anyway but damn what did she do to herself.

  81. 81

    Eiw God…this girl makes me gag!

  82. 82

    Give me a break! We give Phelps shit for smoking pot and HE went to school. This ghetto bitch drops out in 9th grade gets knocked up and is an "American Idol" YEAH not what I want my kids to look up to. Also Simon bailing her out?! Haa just shows she cant manage her money so someone bails her out. She is a failure and shouldnt even get any kind of publicity. I would rather have my kids look up to an Olympic medalist who went to school and smoked a little pot over some hood rat who just gave up..

  83. 83

    I love this girl… i don't care if she cant read. i wonder if her tattoos are all spelled correctly tho… but fuck i love her. her music is great!
