That up there is a trick question, guys. Because there’s usually no “loving it” when it comes to Fantasia Barrino‘s fashion choices, and last night was definitely no exception. In case you guys didn’t watch ‘American Idol‘ this season because you think it’s complete crap these days (and if that’s the case, duh! Twinsies!), then you might not have known that last night was the season finale, and they crowned a guy by the name of Phillip Phillips as this year’s American Idol.
Fantasia showed up wearing this sequined catsuit (?), and while her performance with Joshua Ledet was pretty solid, there was nothing solid about this get-up.
In short, she’s looked way, way better.

Apparently Fantasia Barrino is still on this OD/affair thing, because she’s coming forth with further information surrounding her breakdown of a few months ago, that which resulted in a hospitalization and
a pre-planned media blitz an intensive recovery plan.
Many of you guys – myself included – thought that it was kind of dirty that Tasia promoted her alleged suicide attempt in the way that she did, and also thought it was pretty selfish that she allowed the demons of a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship to interfere with her ability to parent her young child, so this will probably come as no shock to those of who you shared those sentiments.
Fantasia, present at her on-again, off-again lover’s divorce trial, spoke out, claiming that she had aborted a child – allegedly the child of Antwaun Cook, a married man – around the time of her suicide attempt. Barrino was in attendance at the trial, answering questions such as whether or not she was aware that Cook was married and living with his wife during the time of their affair.
What the abortion had to do with the court hearing, I’m not really all that sure, once again – the entire thing is simply being held to determine whether or not Fantasia knowingly involved herself with a married man, or if Cook led Fantasia to believe that he was, indeed single during the time of their eleven-month affair.
Fantasia is still dating Cook, and the trial is still underway.
“Carrying six years of so much, I always take a licking and keep on ticking. Everyone thinks I’m so strong, it became so heavy for me. I wanted to be away from the noise. I just began to get tired of taking so many licks. The foreclosure, so many things I had to deal with, people just see the glitz and the glamour … I was in the hospital and they gave me a different name. Nobody asked me anything about the press, they talked to me about my nails and hair. A nurse, Melanie, she would come in and make me walk around. She brought me Sister 2 Sister magazine, and I was in there. She told me ‘You gotta get outta here and you gotta go back to work.’ And for me there are people that love me and want to see me go back to work. There’s no perfect person. They didn’t treat me like Fantasia, they treated me like Tasia.”
You know, suicide is no joke. It’s not a laughing matter, it’s something that should be taken seriously, and whether or not the cry for help is for attention or to save a life (sometimes one is just as important as the other), Fantasia Barrino is still talking about her suicide attempt to whoever will listen. And by “whoever will listen,” I mean “various talk shows through various interviews.” The above quote was from Fantasia’s latest Good Morning America interview, where she discussed her …
