Fantasia Speaks!

| Filed under: Fantasia

And she has A LOT to say!

This morning, Fantasia made an appearance on Good Morning America to talk about her recent scandal and brush with suicide. She covers a lot of ground, from getting back to work to feeling better to placing the blame of her "stress" on YOU, America.

We don't care. We're just happy to see she is alright.

Check out the video above to hear what Fantasia had to say for herself today.

    This is all a stunt! CD coming out. What a way to try to get people to buy it. DIVE ON A SPIKE ALREADY!!!!!



  2. 2

    Fantasia can't read. [/Kathy Griffin]

    I say this is all mostly for publicity… Whatever she needs it.



  3. 3

    I do not want to hear her whining crap BUT I will watch the WIFE of the husband she stole on Oprah. I hope the court awards the wife MONEY$$$ from Fantasia.



  4. 4

    OH YEAH…..And your hair looks like SH*T!



  5. 5

    Thats what you get when you give trailer trash money. Go back to where you came from….nothing.



  6. 6

    no one cares



  7. 7

    wake me up when she's in the fame trash-bin



  8. 8

    What an asshole.



  9. 9

    The timing of her "suicide attempt" is suspect. I don't believe that you can go from trying to kill yourself to doing morning show interviews in a two week period. Smells like a publicity stunt to draw attention to her new album release to me. Don't get me wrong, I really like her. There is no doubt that she has immense talent, and lord knows she has had her struggles. It is just all too coincidental.



  10. 10

    How did she blame it on us?? How about YOU.



  11. 11

    Please! You sought this life! You ASKED for it when you auditioned for IDOL! DO NOT blame anyone but yourself: your shortsightedness in not considering the piossibility of FAME! I am Soooo tired of people blaming everyone but themselves. It's time to own up to dcuisions YOU made. Glad you're OK. Now, grow up and 'fess up!



  12. 12

    Hamnip # 7 You must really be a fan if you don't think she been in the fame trash for a long time. That horse done run. ;-)

    Her 'suicide' attempt was definitely a PR stunt. Go away Fantasia. And is that little girl voice her real voice??? Ugh.



  14. 14

    i care so much I didn't watch……..



  15. 15

    never-was dumb slut



  16. 16

    TRANNY!!!



  17. 17

    I try and kill myself too if I was that fucking ugly



  18. 18

    she's an asshole



  19. 19

    I'm impressed. Fantasia is so eloquent now and she speaks so much better. She's definitely educated herself. Good for her.



  20. 20

    God damn that's one ugly bitch. And what a coincidence, her new album drops soon. What a load of shit, her admission that she was trying to end it, now she's amazingly well again and able to work. Bullshit, if she wanted to end it, she would have fuckin killed herself, not take a bunch of slow acting pills and letting someone know she did it, then get's saved. Wow, how serious she was. She's a home wrecking whore and needs to learn how to off herself the right way if she want's people to believe her pathetic fat ass was really trying to do it.



  21. 21

    COULD SPARE TO LOSE ANOTHER 20 LBS.

    It is gonna be a long "healing" process for her… she still does not seem to be OK…
    I don´t know if she succeeds or not, but I wish her the best…

    23

    This is totally a stunt!! Who "tries" to commit suicide and then less than 2 weeks later is on talk shows speaking about it. And a life coach?? Maybe she should consider counceling first. And I ddint hear her once talk about her kids!!! She is so fake. I cant stand her.



  24. 24

    Ugh, I'm glad she is alive and everything, but that is a total PR stunt like everyone else said. And lets face it, she is not that relevant so she can save the bs that it is america's fault she is screwed up, because really, no one is wasting their time talking about her.



  25. 25

    Um…SHE'S the one that was involved with a married man. She brought all the stress upon herself.



  26. 26

    Her hairstyle is ridiculous! try.. just try and have some class.



  27. 27

    I don't know if I can believe this anymore… If she were feeling that much pressure from being in the public eye she could have easily taken time off, spend time with her family, perform at local clubs if she really felt the need to keep singing. But no, she decides to immediately throw herself back into the spotlight to promote her new album rather than take time to receive proper help.



  28. 28

    I really don't understand why everyone is so pissed that she is dating a guy who is separated from his wife but when it comes to Angelina Jolie we shun the fact that she openly took Brad from Jennifer. In that case perez and everyone else that has something to say about fantasia need to check themselves. You guys are truly a trip. If Fantasia's a homewrecking whore then so is Angelina. Stop being bias……idiots!



  29. 29

    This is possibly the most disgusting publicity stunt I've ever witnessed. One does not attempt suicide and then film for a reality show two days later, and then hit the morning TV circuit in two weeks - TIMED PERFECTLY FOR TODAY'S RELEASE OF HER NEW CD.
    Her few remaining fans and some of the public had soured to her because she carried on with a married man and her last CD bombed. This is win/win. She'll get sympathy and tons of press. Fantasia releasing a CD - media isn't that interested. Fantasia discussing a recent suicide attempt; media, very interested. I don't believe her for one minute.



  30. 30

    Where is all the venom for Fantasia for being a homewrecker?!?! Anyone else gets caught in cheating scandal and all we hear from you is HOMEWRECKER & WHORE. Fantasia gets a pass because you like her? Which means you don't have a problem with cheating and just use any excuse to bash people you don't already like. You want people to take you seriously for your "work"…stop being a catty little bitch and don't fall into the double standards you're always whining about.



  31. 31

    I'm sorry but….publicity stunt? Come on she has a new album coming out and this happens… this is "interesting" timing…. and why is she talking on national tv about something so personal if this is true?!!? wtf?!



  32. 32

    i REALLY want to see her do well. She's just a young woman trying to do good. And these people saying that her suicide was a PR attempt are dickwads. The woman was being sincere about losing control. It had nothing to do with her CD coming out. She does need someone to help her deal with life's trials. Everyone is not able. I wish some of the PEREZ readers would swallow a bottle…



  33. 33

    If she's a homewrecking whore then so is Angelina Jolie. You guys are so bias and hateful. Hell Angelina has had a whole farm of kids with a man she stole on set from his wife and everything you say about her is positve. You even have hateful things to say about Jennifer Anniston. Get a life.



  34. 34

    She looks like one of the three stooges (Moe Howard) in that wig. It sounds like she is exasperated that she lived! Poor girl, she lives in such a hellhole….Hoping her boyfriends wife gets alot of her money though it doesn't make up for having a husband you loved and a father to two small children. What goes around comes around Fantasia ….



  35. 35

    And if you want to stop being picked apart by everyone, don't film a reality show with your burdensome family and your (still legally) married boyfriend. I say "live how you want to live" but dont' be a whiner when you signed up for the whole pie.



  36. 36

    What the hell is up with that hair? Put a bowl on your head and cut around it but leave to strings hanging. Hideous . . . She didnt attempt suicide she just created publicity. So transparent and sad that it is the only way she can get the medias attenion considering she is uspposed to be a singer.



  37. 37

    "I take a licking and keep on ticking". What in the hell has happened to her that has been so awful? She was too dumb to manage her fortune and she lost her house. Comedians made fun of her. Nobody threw her a parade for getting her GED. Wow. Talk about being terminally ignorant and un-self-aware. She needs to look to Jennifer Hudson to see a young star who has truly faced trauma and adversity and quit begging America to feel sorry for her dumb ass.



  38. 38

    I too think this is for publicity– If she really wanted to die she wouldn't have done it when someone could easily find and save her. Furthermore, someone very close to me attempted suicide years ago, and they put him in the psych ward for 3 days (very standard) where he met other suicidals who had attempted, and he said there's very little chance someone serious about trying to kill themselves would be ok with talking about it, especially so openly, so soon after. It's very unfortunate because suicide is a very real problem and so many people feel that's their only option… and she's capitalizing on it to make money.



  39. 39

    wow.
    So she wakes up from trying to kill herself and doesn't say 'thank god I didn't just leave my daughter without a mother' How selfish and self entitled can you be? I feel NO sympathy for this woman. Here s clue…. if you don't want 'drama' in your life, why do you have a reality tv show, in which you pull stunts like get out of the hospital to go talked your married boyfriend in front of cameras, instead of going to apologzie to your 10 year old daughter for all this BS. I hope Antwaun Cook's wife sues the pants off her for alienation of affection.



  40. 40

    * Of course she's unhappy….look at her hair! Lookin like Lloyd Christmas!!!!



  41. 41

    Re: bezarkobarbie
    I completley agree with you. That was almost the exact same thought I had. Even when you watch the good morning America video before the interview, she did not mention her daughter once or during the interview at all.



  42. 42

    Suicide is never the answer. For every problem there is a solution and to me suicide is a cowardly way out. This girl had everything going for her and she misused the gifts that God has bestowed on her. It just burns me how so many fuck ups are given second and third chances over and over again. There are so many people out there who really deserve second chances and never get it. Fantasia needs to grow up and face whatever demons she has and move on and make something of the God given talent she has. What is wrong with these people. don't they stop and think



  43. 43

    I'm so disappointed in you Fantasia. I hope things get better and she learns to make better choices.



  44. 44

    Ugh! You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. Why won't she just disappear?



  45. 45

    I don't believe you Fantasy…..I mean Fantasia. You bedded down a married and now you can't handle the pressure. Takes a lickin' and keeps on tickin', huh? Well…. Lick on THIS !!



  46. 46

    Oh yeah, If you really want to kill yourself, you would just do it!!! Attempts are just crys for attention!



  47. 47

    This selfish bitch has a child! I really can't stand her!



  48. 48

    anyone else find it coincidental that RIGHT after her suicide "attempt" she's back at work promoting her album and talking about that night WAY more than any normal person would??
    sad sad attempt at a grab for attention… despicable actually

    and didn't she OD on like advil or something? who uses advil to try and end it all??



  49. 49

    Poor Tasia!!
    Were all human. :-/



  50. 50

    She is so lucky she won Idol, between the face, hair and poor public speaking she would never have gotten a deal otherwise.



  51. 51

    Wow is this what it takes in the music industry now to sell your album. Damn.



  52. 52

    For crying out loud! Why would you wanna kill urself over idiots? Tell your families and all the mouchers to fuck the hell off and leave u alone! Don't comit suicide! I fucking hate weak ppl! AND her hair looks like shit! What is this? the 70's? And stop talkin like MJ! FUCK OFF Fantasia! Weak ass bitch! She shouldn't be aloud to earn more money if she's just gonna blow it on crap anyways!



  53. 53

    Who is her hairstylist? Tootie?



  54. 54

    I can't care less what this selfish b..itch has to say about the suicide attempt. How can she live with herself knowing she was going to leave her kid an orphan just because of men and their BS? she gets zero sympathy from me..homewrecker.



  55. 55

    Re: SimilAKA – Obviously you don't read commentors notes….most commentators trash Angelina just the way they are doing now with Fantasia. Maybe Perez idolizes Angelina..but most commentators on this site don't. Just thought I clarify that for you.



  56. 56

    Re: SimilAKA – i dont want you to get me wrong, but as much as im going back to your comment, it seems like your making a racist statement there. first and foremost, how is fantasia connected to angelina? second, when you mentioned homewhrecking, angelina hooked up with brad because his marriage was already on the rocks! and third, angelina NEVER commited an "attempted suicide" to leave her childeren alone! PLUS, she always gives to the world charities unconditionaly. And what does Fantasia do? BLAME US for her problems! LAME! LAME!



  57. 57

    Someone should tell her that her head looks like an acorn with eyes.



  58. 58

    OH BOO THE FUCK HOO.

    You don't know what STRESS really is then.

    Come back down to reality.



  59. 59

    Re: WMariah – first off this was exactly for perez and not anyone else sorry you thought you had to "clarify" things for me. Not a fan of either of them personally.



  60. 60

    Re: HypnoTicBaBe – When people that you don't like obviously you jump to racism, try again. First of all both of them are involved in a relationship that has a married man in the equation. Get it! And yes Fantasia is singing that same old song that Angelina did, there marriage was on the rocks! I am not a fan of both but I can't help but realize that Perez praises Angie and bashes everyone else! If you want to talk about racism maybe you should comment to the people who are calling her "ghetto" or yea maybe comment to the ones who are talking about her "hair".



  61. 61

    Re: SimilAKA – ok, so if you wanna put them in the same boat, fine! your opinion! and yes, i agree that perez favors angelina over fantasia. have you asked yourself maybe why he does? as i said before, she always travels and donates to world charities. Have you ever seen angelina make a video stating how the fans are responsible for her stress and how because of them she wanted to commit suicide but then she didnt?! No, exactly. Why does Fantasia go public about the whole thing? if she had a meltdown, im sorry to hear about it, but it would've been better to keep it to yourself lady. And maybe, just maybe, if you really had problems with yourself, you could've seeked professional help, not go public about it and blame your audience. good job, right before your album release too. this is ridiculous.
