Everyone knows that it’s been a difficult couple of weeks for Fantasia.

    Fantasia omg is all I can say girl you are the truth….Stop worrying about the nae sayers….no one is perfect…..

    Fantasia has “IT!” There’s not an artist out today that can match her vocally. She is a beautiful woman, and I would not allow self-loathing people to bring me down. People spend thousands of dollars for the very same features that are the true essence of African American women. It’s time for us to embrace those features, and love ourselves unconditionally.

    @John what do you mean you ppl? Everyone is entitled to their opinion>>>>>>>>>>

  14. Lisa says:

    Hey John get a life. You don’t know Fantasia and have no idea what she was feeling. Be happy that she is well and alive. Practice compassion and I guarantee you, you will love yourself more. Don’t be mad that she did not succeed with trying to leave this earth. There are other people who make attmepts on their lives and fail on a daily basis. She was hurting and was crying out for help. Thank God he decided it was not time for her to go. Fantasia is the bomb if that were not true you would not have wasted your time coming here to comment. Keep hating it only propels her higher. Thanks!

  18. Felecia says:

    Will someone please have Fantasia to do a live album and a gospel album. I want to hear her sing her R&B and some Gospel live. This girl sang Bittersweet live and it sounded as good as it does on the CD. The CD by the way is great! I am very proud of her comeback. I just hope people would get pass the negative press about her, pray for her healing & then listen to the soul in her voice. What an incredible vocalist! She’s one of the best SINGERS around today. Kudos! VH1 Bring more of the live stuff from Fantasia and for the love of God, sell in CD!!
