Fantasia Notes

Categories NewsPosted on
Just a few interesting points…this is all beginning to look like nothing more than publicity (or perhaps, since it happened, they might as well spin it for press and exposure):
  • Fantasia will address her recent suicide attempt on an upcoming episode of VH1′s Behind The Music, which airs tomorrow (the same day that her album drops)…apparently she is admitting that it was in fact a suicide attempt: I didn’t have any fight in me. I didn’t care about anything. I just wanted out. At that moment, I wanted out. I wanted it to be over with – all of it, all of that [expletive]. I just sat in the closet and looked at the mirror and took all the pills in the bottle. I wanted to go to sleep and just be at peace. I knew exactly what I was doing. You can’t accidentally take a whole bottle of pills.”
  • She also speaks on Antwaun Cook: “When I met him, he was separated … wasn’t living in his home. He didn’t want to be back with his wife – that is what I was told,” Barrino says. “I remember waking up in the hospital [and thinking], ‘It didn’t work, I’m still here in this hellhole. Still here with all this drama going on.’ My nurse Melanie was a blessing into my life because she didn’t tell me what I wanted to hear,” she says. “She told me what I needed to hear. And she looked at me and said, ‘You gotta get up, and you’ve gotta get out of here, ’cause you haven’t fulfilled your destiny.’ I realized how people end up in the grave. Because that one moment [snaps her fingers] of just breaking or feeling like I can’t, I can’t go on, it’s too heavy. That was somewhere I don’t ever want to go again.”
  • Radar Online is reporting that Antwaun’s wife has been approached by Oprah to come on her show.
